2007 release. Since performing in the late 1960s and through the early '80s 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. On Vogel Musik (or "Bird-music"), Fuchs is heard performing a series of duos with multi-instrumentalist Christoph Reiserer (saxes/clarinet) (recorded in 2002). The duo then extends to a trio with Julia Schoelzel (on piano) for a piece recorded at Musikfest, Munich, in 2004. The themes that developed from these recordings revealed a beautiful and bizarre series of compositions that are collected on CD here for the first time. With an array of movements and audio dialogue among the performers, the bird-related themes have an equally visual quality that correlates perfectly with such titles as "Zwiegespräch" ("Dialogue") and "Fliegen" ("Flying"). Using her voice and violin, along with a vast assortment of custom and homemade percussion instruments, Fuchs emits a remarkable sense of space and otherworldly atmosphere that one may liken to acts in musical theater. Vogel Musik 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.
