All of your favorites, in one place.
Performing in the late 1960's and through the early 80's as half of the German duo Anima (with Paul Fuchs), Limpe Fuchs continues to explore music making as a part of everyday life. Her vibrant live performances are numerous and consist of solo as well as ongoing collaborative works. With her new release, "Vogelmusik" (or "Bird-music"), Limpe is heard performing a series of duos with multi-instrumentalist Christoph Reiserer (saxes/clarinet). The duo then extends to a trio with Julia Schoelzel (on piano), featuring a piece recorded at Musikfest, Munich, in 2004. The themes that developed from these recent recordings revealed a beautiful and bizarre series of compositions that have now been collected on CD for the first time. With an array of movements and audio dialogue amongst the performers, the "bird-related" themes have an equally visual quality that correlate perfectly with such titles as "Zwiegespräch" (Dialogue) and "Fliegen" (Flying). Using her voice, violin, along with a vast assortment of custom and homemade percussion instruments, Limpe's work emits a remarkable sense of space and otherworldly atmosphere that one may liken to acts in musical theatre. "Vogelmusik" takes flight with a fresh set of utterly unique pieces from a true musical visionary. Packaged in a full-color digipak with illustrations by Christoph Heemann.
