The Limpe Fuchs album "Pianobody 2002" was recorded completely by herself. That alone stands for total musical freedom. Limpe Fuchs does not care about categories. Her music moves in an unusual way between opaque harmonies and clear rhythms, she combines unprocessed piano passages with field recordings, manipulated ring modulators and the sound of rolling metal discs. "Pianobody 2002" is unobtrusive fascination, pure sound aesthetic, unique and with deep seriousness, however, with a huge sense of Bavarian humour.

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."
