SOUND collector

About the Project


A national art collective searching new influences, exchanging ideas across national borders, opening up the sound and visualizing it


Cultural dialogue through music is the essence of SOUND collector”. Bass clarinetist and saxophonist Lisa Hofmaninger and drummer Judith Schwarz have created an exciting artistic route through countries with strong musical identities they will discover in the next 2 years (Romania,Turkey, Iran and more to come).

In close cooperation with local musicians the two musicians try to rediscover, understand and reinterpret cultural and musical traditions that are characteristic of the respective countriesSupported by a great national art collective the process of exchange will result in a visual composition each telling it’s own story made up of a specific topic that emerges during the intensive cultural dialouge.
