Els Vandeweyer is a Belgian vibraphonist, percussionist and composer currently living in Berlin, where she explores the middle ground between classical, jazz, and free improvised music. After studying classical percussion at the Royal Flemish Conservatory in Antwerp and jazz at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and Musikhogskule in Oslo, Vandeweyer traveled to Portugal, where she co-founded the IMI Kollektief (whose critically acclaimed debut album, “Snug as a Gun”, was released on Clean Feed in 2006), as well as Chicago, where she played with Ken Vandermark. In Berlin, Vandeweyer remains heavily involved in the improvised music community. Current projects are “Quat” with Fred Van Hove, Paul Lovens and Martin Blume, (“Quat-Live at Hasselt”, was released on NoBusinessrecords, Vilnius 2013) and Pascal Niggenkemper’s “Vision 7″ (“Lucky Prime”, Clean Feed, 2013).

 

Ute Wassermann is a composer/performer and interpreter of contemporary music. “Ute Wassermann has developed many special multivoiced vocal techniques, catalogued by register, timbre and articulative sequences which may be deconstructed and/or superimposed and used to explore spatial resonance phenomena. (Freedom of the City)” Since 1984 she developed many special multivoiced vocal techniques.

She has collaborated frequently with composers who have created works especially for her voice, including Henning Christiansen, Richard Barrett, Chaya Czernowin, Hans-Joachim Hespos, Sven Åke Johansson, Ana Maria Rodriguez and has performed with many ensembles and orchestras including ASKO, KNM Berlin, ELISION, and Münchener Kammerorchester.
