The amazing lineup of Hans Koch, Martin Schütz and Fredy Studer with words by Christian Uetz
"Christian Uetz's texts are inspired and moved by the sound and the meaning of words. With concentration and utter alertness he follows the tracks of meaning as well as the traces of sound, a procedure which juxtaposes and assembles contents seemingly by chance. His often fast and daring associative leaps and his breathtaking speed of reading recall the storms of thought - and at the same time, the impossibility of verbalizing those thoughts - as experienced in psychedelic states.
Koch-Schütz-Studer support this process with their highly sensitive sound-machinery. They react to the spoken word like seismographs, sometimes in agreement with the speaker and sometimes not. The musical answer stands for itself. It is not simply a translation or a sound-mirror of the texts. Radiating from their inner selves the speaker "sings" and the musicians "speak", thus opening a new dimension to the listener's experience: language is turned into music and music becomes eloquent language."-Intakt

Singe, Voicecrack, Günter Müller, Jean-Marc Montera, and Joëlle Léandre in Europe, America, and Asia-and still managed to maintain his association with the Koch-Schütz-Studer Trio.
