SABINE VOGEL

As a flutist, Sabine Vogel focuses on modern playing techniques, sounds and improvisation. She has developed a unique performance style, both acoustically and with the expansion of electronic equipment and a specific use of microphones. In her compositions, she mixes alternative flute sounds from the “inside” of her instrument, with nature recordings from the “outside”. In her site-specific compositions – sound instillations and live performances in nature – she affectingly engages with sound, place, time, moment and memory.
