Born 1961 in Nuremberg, she studied the visual arts, which still have an important influence on her music. Since moving to Hamburg in 1982 she has been involved in free improvisation and experimental music. Since then she has “established a distinguished grammar of sounds beyond the open trumpet” (jazzdimensions.de). She works mainly on extending the sounding possiblities of the trumpet by using splitting sounds, multiphonics and granular sounds and has developed her own extended techniques and preparations for producing these sounds. Besides this she is especially interested in the relation between sound and silence.
She performs solo, with dancers, working ensembles, and one-time collaborations with musicians from around the world.
She has been organising the festival of improvised music Real Time Music Meeting for over ten years.
Collaborations with Ute Wassermann, Gino Robair, Lucio Capece, Christoph Schiller, Heddy Boubaker, Gregory Büttner and Nordzucker (with Lars Scherzberg, Chris Heenan and Michael Maierhof), amongst others. Soloproject 'Radio Silence No More'.
Concerts and festivals in Europa, USA and Asia.
