Ute Wassermann is known as a vocal soloist and composer/performer for her extraordinary, many-voiced and extreme vocal sound-language, which she has brought into contemporary music in diverse ways. She defamiliarizes the sound of her voice using birdcall-whistles, palate whistles, speaker objects  or field recordings. A particular interest is the development of compositions for spaces with unusual acoustic qualities.

She has performed as a vocal soloist in the area of contemporary and experimental music in festivals in Europe, Australia and Asia. She is  an integral part of the Berlin and London experimental music scenes.  Regular performances with ongoing groups like  speak easy (Phil Minton, Martin Blume, Thomas Lehn, Ute Wassermann), John Russel, Aleksander Kolkowski, Els Vandeweyer, Michael Vorfeld (percussion & lights), Birgit Ulher and others and is a member of the Berlin-based composer/performer ensemble Les Femmes Savantes. She has given premieres of works  composed for her voice, for example by Richard Barrett, Chaya Czernowin, Henning Christiansen, Hans-Joachim Hespos, Matthias Kaul, Michael Maierhof, Michael Finnissy, Cathy van Eck, Simon Steen-Andersen, Andrew Noble and works by Salvatore Sciarrino, John Cage and others.

This performance is made possible in part by the Goethe-Institut Munich.
