Limpe Fuchs

Saturday 11 September

The work of legendary instrumentalist Limpe Fuchs encourages the notion that the bulk of music’s potential is still very much untapped. As an endlessly prolific creator of self-built instruments and sounds, Fuchs became known in the seventies as one half of krautrock outfit Anima Sound with her husband, sculptor Paul Fuchs. Even after many decades, Fuchs preserved a whimsical personality to performance, freely alternating between custom-made wood horns, bamboo flutes, percussion pieces, string instruments and her unique self-taught brand of birdsong. Considering her gift for unearthing tactile sounds most human ears have never heard before, this is a live experience like none you have ever witnessed.
