Artist Biographies:

"Claudia Ulla Binder (*1959):

I grew up in the south of Germany in a very small village. I studied Musicology and Psychology in Berlin and got a Masters Degree in Psychology 1983.

In 1980 I went to the Creative Music Studio in Woodstock. George Lewis was teaching that summer. Working with many different people on both improvisation and composition was a wonderful experience and has helped me to get going with my own music. Back to Berlin I took part in performances of John Cage`s Songbooks with German composer Dieter Schnebel and 1983-86 studied piano with US jazz pianist Walter Norris. Since 1986 I live in Zürich, Switzerland. In 2001 I got a degree in classical piano, having worked with Erna Ronca and Eva Serman.In Zürich improvised music has a home since over 30 years: the WIM, Werkstatt für Improvisierte Musik, helps the local scene to be so lively and varied.

Concerts and Festivals: Willisau, Taktlos, Schaffhausen, Jazzherbst Konstanz, New Music America (Miami), LMC Festival London, Jazzfestival London, Suoni a Sound (Italy), Ear We Are Biel...
