Exclusive video interview with FBPO’s Jon Liebman
November 26, 2012

Born and raised in Innsbruck, Austria, Ariane Cap has been musically active since the age of 5. She entered the Conservatory of the Land Tirol at age 6, where she studied the piano and the flute until the age of 18.

An interest in rock, pop and dance music enticed Ariane to pick up the electric bass and eventually the upright. She studied bass and bass education at the Academy of Music Vienna and attended the University of Miami on a music scholarship. Ariane received a graduate certificate of music from the University of South Florida and has also studied with bass greats Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey, Chuck Rainey, Gerald Veasley, Kai Eckhardt and Kenny Werner.

Throughout her career, Ariane has played in countless bands and projects throughout Europe and the U.S., including Mozartband (a fusion of funk, rock and Mozart, featuring members of the Viennese Philharmonic), the Palmwine Boys, Tierra Negra, Diego Rodriguez and Daline Jones. She was also part of the creation of Cirque du Soleil’s adaptation of The Tempest, Amaluna, in Montreal.

An active educator and clinician, Ariane regularly teaches at the Berkeley Jazz School and Jazz Workshop and often co-conducts bass seminars and rock camps alongside music luminaries who have included Steve Bailey, Leo Nocentelli, DJ Logic, Dave LaRue, Carl Verheyen, Walfredo Reyes and others. Ariane is the founder of Step Up Music Vallejo, as well as a freelancing composer and sound designer. Her music and sound creations can be found in handheld and online games for Wolf Track Audio, Karney Music & Sound and Somatone.
