"Ulrichsberg in the bohemian forest is a special place in the no-man's -land of high culture. My all too rare visits at the annually hosted Kaleidophon Festival there have provided me with deep impressions that have promoted and stimulated my curiosity for sonic adventures and experiments.

One such performance with a lasting effect was the duo of Manon-Liu Winter and Franz Hautzinger in 2009. Her sophisticated approach to piano playing, by turns subtle and eruptive, and her creations inside the instrument fascinated me. Over the years, my desire for musical communications with Manon grew ever stronger.

When she, a rare guest in Munich, spontaneously agreed to do a concert at the SALON fur KLANG + KUNST, accepting the long journey from Vienna and the absence of a fee, I was highly delighted. [...]"-Udo Schindler, from the liner notes.

"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."
