descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The trio Koch-Schutz-Studer which has over the last years repeatedly collaborated with musicians from totally different genres (from the DJ scene, from Egypt and Cuba), ceates a web of sounds, a poetry of the transitional. Now integrated within this shimmering context of pure emphasis on the immediate, is the New York vocal and lyric artist Shelley Hirsch who once said that the body is the largest recording and storage medium.

Shelley Hirsch, based in Brooklyn, NYC, is one of the most astonishing vocalists of improvised music. She is not only a singer, but a composer and performance artist as well. Since the 80s she has fostered a friendship with Hans Koch and Martin Schutz. She was part of the ensemble X-Communication which the two Swiss men had founded with Butch Morris. The jazz critic Harry Lachner writes about the the music of Koch-Schutz-Studer with Shelley Hirsch:

"A unique poetry of the now, telling of the waywardness and drift of language ... full of lust and humour, lascivious and rebellious".

"-Intakt

"Fredy Studer, drums/percussion

Fredy Studer was born on June 16, 1948, in Lucerne (Switzerland), where he also lives today. He is an autodidact. His music performances since the early seventies have been as eclectic as his freelance activities with musicians, ranging from "A", as in John Abercrombie, to "Z", as in John Zorn.

For the past 45 years, he has performed at festivals, given concerts and workshops, and recorded for radio and television, as well as music for dance productions and radio plays, theatre and film music in Europe, Africa, Japan, Central and South America, the Caribbean, in Taiwan, India, Russia and in Canada and the USA. He has been honoured with numerous prizes and awards.

Current groups and projects include: the hardcore chambermusic trio "Koch-Schütz-Studer" with Hans Koch and Martin Schütz (since 1990); "Phall Fatale" with Joy Frempong, Joana Aderi, John Edwards and Daniel Sailer; the Jimi Hendrix Project with Christy Doran, Erika Stucky and Jamaaladeen Tacuma; the revived legendary "OM" band with Christy Doran, Urs Leimgruber and Bobby Burri; the trio with Katharina Weber and Fred Frith; the band "Urumchi" with Saadet Türköz, Hans Hassler and Alfred Zimmerlin; and the percussion trio with Robyn Schulkowsky and Joey Baron. Studer also works as a freelance drummer and performs a limited number of select solo concerts.

Fredy Studer was one of the first drummers to incorporate open improvisation and grooves into his style. The specialist journal "Drums & Percussion" wrote: "... without doubt, Swiss percussionist Fredy Studer is one of the most innovative drummers in Europe..."

Fredy Studer's works and collaboration has been documented on more than 90 recordings."
