Berlin - Germany

Edith Steyer is a free improvising and composing clarinet and saxophone player with her roots in jazz and classical music. As a former student for social anthropology she is also interested in ethnic music. She is dedicated to the exploration of her instruments and prepares them with music tools and elements from every day life.

Aside from working on a solo concept, her foremost interest is to create intelligently woven nets of interaction and noisy sound scapes with other artists.

She was also working with musical theatre groups , like Das Wilde Klingen and Mann aus Obst. She got grants for her work from the Senate of Berlin, Deutscher Musikrat, Musikfond and Goethe Institute.
