ECHO CHAMBER Episode 3 – Hannes Buder



My guest for this third episode is improviser and composer Hannes Buder, whose work concentrates on issues of movement, authenticity, intuition, minimalism, density and slowness.

Buder’s current projects include the bands ‘Zug Zug’ with Todd Capp and Andrew Lafkas, ‘Gravity’ with Hannes Lingens and Andrew Lafkas, the duo with Luc Houtkamp, the dance company “one:third”, and his solo project. Having performed across Europe, Australia and in the USA, Buder has also composed, improvised and recorded music for different dance, theater and film projects, as well as given workshops at festivals, music schools and prisons.

This interview was recorded at the Lite-Haus gallery in Berlin, while I was working on my sound installation Echo Organ. We talked in the corner of the room, lit only by a low-level lamp, which created all at once an acoustically cavernous yet visually intimate environment.
