Silvia Sauer is a singer, improviser and performer, fascinated by musically exploring the extent of expression and the facets of human voice. Since years her quest includes among others: jazz and worldmusic, live-performances of silent movies worldwide (by invitation of Goethe-Institutes), multimedia projects with dancers and musicians, collective free improvised music and humorous solo-performances in variety theaters with her loopstation (s.c. 'voicetheater'). She integrates this wide range of music genres in her personal artistic style of expression and improvisation, which is characterized as a free, undogmatic and playful bridging of boundaries.
