The concept album "Bird Music (Vogel Musik)" is a collection of seven live improvisations, which Limpe Fuchs recorded with multi-instrumentalist Christoph Reiserer and pianist Julia Schoelzel. The song titles might sound common and at times silly but listeners familiar with music visionary Limpe Fuchs know that around the corner he will have to cope with a deep musical experience. With homemade instruments plus her violin and her voice, Limpe Fuchs creates an atmosphere that does not seem to come out of this world. "Bird Music" is an album rich in details and (unusual) structures and has to offer something new with each listening.

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."
