It is no exaggeration to say that Limpe Fuchs' musical creations really have a life of their own, whether the sounds are produced by conventional instruments, vocal chords, or even from objects she found or constructed specifically for that purpose. Her music is characterized, especially when she is playing the ballastring instruments, by the reverberating humming of the strings, rich in overtones, and by the mysterious echoes emanating from stones. For Limpe Fuchs, music means setting out on a joyous journey of discovery. She is not afraid to leave firm ground behind and thus, by avoiding rigidity, preserves the vitality of her music. This particularly comes across when collaborating with other musicians, whether improvising freely or on a given theme. Her music makes us sit up and listen, and at the same time enriches us, for only when we have learned how to listen can we really appreciate the true nature of things.
