If a Bowmaker is proud to be, you know that a bow is not just an accessory only
if not an extention of musician to run a piece in particular, if an instrument too.
We interested the selection of woods and materials with which the bows we do handcrafted mode are developed, seeking balance and consistence in each of our designs, seeking to integrate the knowledge of the organizational structure of selected woods, and this together enrich the harmonics of a noble stringed instrument emanates.
seeking to offer the musician an extension of himself, the sine qua non of the interpreter.
Ernesto Rondero, Bowmaker:
Matthias Kayssler’s work is characterized not only by his passion for aesthetic forms or by the profusion of his skills on building each part of an instrument that is developed and created in his workshop,but throughout his profound knowledge on the different types of woods, in it’s mechanical and organic characteristics, finding ways to respond to each element of this noble material.In what I consider he is a master in his high school of cabinetmaker, not only in terms of his intense way of creating each stroke and carving throughout his gouges and in his varnishing work, but his incredible determination and purpose to achieve each instrument.He is specialized in the study of the baroque period, both classic and late and in the simplicity that knowledge of Biedermeier gives him.
All this coupled with the development on the field of study of acoustic relations in the Pythagorean system among other things.
My perception of his work is based not only on the criticism of the canon that Matthias Kayssler amplies more than satisfied, it is the admiration of the powerful efforts to create each piece and not just the mathematical rigor of this trade, but by the amazing ability to put the heart and hands in the passion of this art.
