Gestrüpp - Limpe Fuchs

LP and download available here

Limpe Fuchs writes about her work on Gestrüpp
I am a composer and performer of acoustic and visual events. In the studio I am lacking the visual element. Therefore I like to work with multitracking. As a soloist I listen to my field recordings and integrate them into my new compositions. I do love radio plays and that is how I create a sort of audio theatre with the aid of my very special instruments and noises.
