Sabine Vogel, born in 1971, is a flutist and composer. She studied Jazz at the Freies Musikzentrum München and at the Bruckner-Konservatorium in Linz, Austria. As a flutist, she is concerned with modern playing techniques, sound, improvisation and has developed her own vocabulary on her instrument, both acoustically and with the expansion of electronic equipment and certain microphoning. In her compositions, she mixes flute sounds from the "inside" of her flutes, which are often on the threshold of the inaudible and which form, so to say, the "microcosm" of her sound world, with fieldrecordings - recordings from the "outside", the "macrocosm". In her site-specific works - sound installations and live performances in nature - she deals with sound, place, time, moment and memory.
