The Limpe Fuchs album " Muusiccia (Metal/Stones)" was recorded in 1993. Limpe Fuchs plays on this album among many other instruments also ballast strings and tube drums, which were built by her former husband, sculptor and sound artist Paul Fuchs. The music on this record is freely improvised. Limpe Fuchs describes the intention of her musical experiments and sound sculptures in short texts that seem to assemble a poem in itself. „Aber durch Mauer von Stein...“, „... und du schaust lange zurück“, „...langvergangener Abend“, „Unter goldnem Gezweig der Nacht und Sternen...“, „Grodek. Und es jagte der Mond ein rotes Tier. Jägerruf und Blutgebell...“, „...nur der Bach rinnt still und stad“, „Ein Haus zerflimmert wunderlich und vag...“, „... und das Tier ging nebenher“, „Langsame Stufen von Moos...“

Limpe Fuchs is a legend in the experimental music scene. In the late sixties, this percussionist drummed on self-made instruments, together with her then husband Paul Fuchs, in the Ensemble Anima. During that time, Limpe and Paul Fuchs cooperated with the classic pianist star Friedrich Gulda, as well as with jazz luminaries like Albert Mangelsdorff, and continually attracted the interest of their audiences in new constellations. Limpe Fuchs' solo peformance with "variable wood and stone rows, ringing bronze in the pendulum strings, and a variety of skin and bronze drums" is a rare occasion to witness one of the early avantgardists of the scene from the old Federal Republic Of Germany. She attempts, while playing live, to develop her musical ideas from the "resonance of the location where the performance takes place" - "to make music in the flow of time, with simplicity and emotion"! Her main concern is to sensitize the process of hearing: "Every tone is a sensation. Listening instead of shutting one's ears. Establishing silence."
