Artist Biographies:

"Udo Schindler is a German improvisation musicians (bass clarinet, contrabass clarinet, saxophone, flute, cornet, also accordion, guitar, percussion, analog synthesizer) and architect. Schindler was active in the 1970s in Franconia first as rock and rock jazz musician before he had flute lessons at the conservatory Nuremberg. Subsequently, he studied architecture at the Technical University of Munich and worked as an architect. In the 1990s he turned to contemporary music (Arch.Ensemble) and improvised music (Schindler.Interferenz.3). In addition to the single tube instruments (saxophones and clarinets), he studied the cornet. In addition to his sound research, he also worked as a director, performer, musician and composer for various theater productions. In the following years he performed with solo and duo projects at new music festivals (Musica Viva, Klangaktionen, etc ...), jazz, experimental music, among others. This led to collaborations with musicians like Hubert Bergmann, Gerry Hemingway, Eddie Prevost, Sebi Tramontana, Georg Wissel, John Russell, Blaise Siwula, Frank Gratkowski, Hans Koch, Urs Leimgruber, Elisabeth Harnik, Katharina Weber and Frank Paul Schubert. In addition to his activities in solid cast he initiated in Munich a series of concerts to free improvisation in ad hoc to test instrumentation."

"Damon Smith studied double bass with Lisle Ellis and has had lessons with Bertram Turezky, Joëlle Leandré, John Lindberg, Mark Dresser and others. Damon's explorations into the sonic palette of the double bass have resulted in a personal, flexible improvisational language based in the American jazz avant-garde movement and European non-idiomatic free improvisation. Visual art, film and dance heavily influence his music, as evidenced by his CAMH performance of Ben Patterson's Variations for Double Bass, collaborations with director Werner Herzog on soundtracks for Grizzly Man and Encounters at the End of the World, and an early performance with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company.

Damon has collaborated with a wide range of musicians, including: Cecil Taylor, Marshall Allen (of Sun Ra's Arkestra), Henry Kaiser, Roscoe Mitchell, Michael Pisaro, Wadada Leo Smith, Marco Eneidi, Wolfgang Fuchs, Peter Brötzmann and Peter Kowald. After many years in the San Francisco Bay Area, and five great years in Houston, Texas working regularly with Alvin Fielder, Sandy Ewen, David Dove & Chris Cogburn, Damon will move to the Boston area in the fall of 2016. Damon has run Balance Point Acoustics record label since 2001, releasing music focusing on transatlantic collaborations between US and European musicians."

"As a flautist, I am mainly active in the field of contemporary chamber music, improvisation and performance. In my artistic work I always look for overlaps with other disciplines and deal with sound, which is why my instruments are constantly growing. In addition to all the flutes, I play the saxophone and use guitar pedals to expand the sound.

I studied the flute in the Netherlands at the universities of Amsterdam and Utrecht, followed by master classes.

With the ensembles KAIDA, AUSSENSTIMMEN, MCMG, SOUND ART + DRAMA and as a soloist, I have won numerous prizes (including the Gaudeamus Prize for Improvisation) and played at various national and international festivals, including summer courses for new music in Darmstadt and the International Handel Festival Göttingen, Munich Biennale, aDevantgarde, Spazio Musica (I), International Gaudeamus Musicweek (NL), Ciclo de Música Contemporánea (E), Music Accord (F), Tbilisi Contemporary Music Evenings (GE).

Numerous composers have dedicated pieces to me or written pieces especially for one of my ensembles.

I have been living in Munich since 2008."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

I approach the picture directly
and each time it ends up with the material confronting me,
and often I let it do as it wishes,
as I have discovered that this is wiser than any calculation.
Craft, technique and excitement are the same thing.
Colours attract forms, signs demand colours -
and if I allow myself to be carried along.
The prize is myk picture.
