Artist Biographies:

"Sabine Vogel was born in Munich, studied jazz-flute at the Anton Bruckner Conservatory in Linz, Austria. In 2000 Sabine Vogel moved to Berlin, since 2005 she has been living in Potsdam.

As a flautist Sabine Vogel focuses on sound and improvisation, using extended techniques both acoustic as well as electronic, creating a very personal contemporary language for the flute. Discovering and producing the unheard, the intimate, in relation to sound production within the flute, is her main focus of exploration. She takes the sounds from the inside of her flute - the microcosm of her flute world - and transports these sounds, with the help of amplification, into a sound-able-hear-able world. Bringing what is inside into the outside. She then combines this world of sound with self-made field recordings- the natural macrocosm of existing sound - forming a composed mixture between the macro and microcosmic. Recently she became more and more interested in site specific work, doing sound installation combined with live playing in natural environment.

Sabine Vogel has played as a soloist or in various formations on festivals like: ISEA RUHR, Ultima Festival/ Oslo, EMS Festival/ Stockholm, Ultraschall Festival/ Berlin, High Zero/Baltimore, Internationale Ferienkurse Darmstadt, Audiocraft, Oxford etc

Her current projects are: ORNIS; an audio-visual Duo with british artist Kathy Hinde, a Duo with australian pianist/organist Chris Abrahams, Landscape Quartet - an enviromental, soundart project with Bennett Hogg, Matt Sansom, Stefan Östersjö - She is a member of the "Splitter Orchester", based in Berlin Sabine Vogel has a lectureship for flute at the University Potsdam

She has played and worked a.o. with Anthony Braxton, Arto Lindsay, Tony Buck, Jim Denley, Chris Abrahams, Alex Nowitz, Malin Bång, Andrea Neumann, Schwimmer,Shannon Cooney, the Walter Thompson Soundpainting Orchestra."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Through different types of flute, electronics and field recordings Sabine Vogel affirms her strong compositional individuality in a truly splendid work, which uses air as a primary ingredient for a series of microscopic analyses of the sonic content of incorporeality. Vogel's phonetics are made of pretty simple elements that reveal multitudes of tiny facets; her pieces scan the no man's lands of sounds lacking the consistency of a proper body, bringing out forward-looking harmonics that render their effect similar to being caressed by marine winds or wandering through desertic desolations. Indeed the sea and the rain are an engrossing presence in "Wax and wane", possibly the finest moment of this conceptual link, a gorgeous piece where flute and bass flute seem to try and determine the geographic coordinates of a lost soul amidst a holy forest of timbral reliquiae and natural lonesomeness. One imagines Vogel with pursed lips and concentrated attitude, captured by her own thought-provoking contemplations while using her instruments for outlandish insufflations of consciousness. Quantifying the value of a record like this is not easy, but there's a definite quality in Sabine Vogel's work that's enough for me to collocate her very high in my recent preferences' scale. "Aus dem Fotoalbum eines Pinguins" is a pleasing surprise from every point of view, a mature statement which effortlessly nails a few fundamental concepts right into our system. It's music that avoids collision but also disdains dialogue, fed by its very depth which could be difficult to understand completely. Not for everybody, then - yet approaching masterpiece status."-Massimo Ricci (Touching Extremes)
