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."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"During the last years I played many concerts with musicans of diverse genres - ranging from experimental to Jazz and non-European music - and I also added several brass instruments (euphonium, tuba and cornet) to my woodwind arsenal. This is why solo playing became less of a priority. However the intense work on sound research and extended playing techniques continued, noise and microtonal textures were perfected, even inspiring some composers of New Music in their strategies. Exciting and rare musical statements of various approaches with pairings of wind instruments were highly acclaimed by international critics, for instance Parnassta Palustris with FP Schubert & US on soprano saxophones, Answer & Maybe a Question with Ove Volquartz & US on bass & contrabass clarinets, as well as wind duets with Marco von Oreill, Frank Gratkowski a.o., documented on labeis in GB,Portugal and Switzerland. In the fall of 2018 Confront Records (GB) will release a solo CD tor contrabass clarinet.

The soprano saxophone, a notoriously capricious and unruly instrument, and particularly demanding in the execution of extended techniques, was my first wind instrument and has been my companion for 40 years. The symbiotic existence with my coequal Selmer Mark VI presents an additional challenge, since the instrument, with its handicaps and restricted playing comfort is anything but state of the art. Within the context ofthe Atelier I will showcase selected, EARTHed options ofthe instrument's cosmos. The concert is a non-idiomatic affirmation off sound, of the heart of sound as Giacinto Scelsi called it, free of listening conventions, for a perceptive and unprejudiced audience expecting the unexpected."-Udo Schindler
