Limpe Fuchs – solaia LP


Fast forward to 2015: after not having met Christoph
Heemann for many years, they got in contact again and performed selected
 dates (as Macchia Forest together with Timo van Luijk) when he proposed
 to Limpe another korg-synthesizer recording. not having touched the
instruments in decades Limpe was reluctant at first but warmed up to the
 idea eventually and improvised a wonderfully meditative and soulful
electronic piece of music. She also recorded five of her pendulum
strings exclusively for the first time (with a bit of vocals, too) –
huge self-built instruments of various size with an amazing sound rich
of oscillating overtones. The both side-long recordings – one side korg,
 one side pendulum strings – featured on “solaia” are a visceral
document of Limpe Fuchs’ artistic versatility and musical sensibilities.
 It’s fair to say: the spirit of her musical approach is captured
perfectly on this new studio-album (mixed and mastered by her son Zoro
Babel), which is released in conjunction with a first-time re-release of
 “via” – both to celebrate her long-standing musical career (and her
eightieth birthday). “via” and “solaia” are available now as two
separate lp’s. Both records are released in an edition of 300 copies and
 accompanied by a 30-page longform interview with Limpe Fuchs and
Christoph Heemann to give an insight in their collaborative history and
portray Limpe’s outstanding artistry.
