Having been predominately occupied writing pieces for his own Jazzrock-Bigband 'KGB', Kasper Ewald subsequently studied music theory and composition at the 'Musik-Akademie Basel' (Basel Academy of Music) under Roland Moser and Detlev Müller-Siemens. His education was supplemented by tuition at the Basel School of Jazz under Hans Feigenwinter and by a film music seminar with Ennio Morricone. In 1997 Ewald was awarded a sabbatical year by the Christoph Delz Foundation in Basel, which enabled him to compose the music theatre piece 'Brambilla'. After supplementary studies in the electronic studio at the School of Arts in Berlin and a further stay in Amsterdam, Kaspar Ewald began teaching in Autumn 2000 at the 'Musikhochschule Zürich' (Zurich School of Music).
