Fred KochIn collaboration with High Zero Festival, UMBC presents a workshop by bass clarinetist Hans Koch on Friday, September 24th at 1 pm in Fine Arts Building Studio 508. Koch quit his career as a recognized classical clarinetist to become one of the most innovative improvising reed players in Europe. He has worked with Cecil Taylor, Fred Frith and other noted artists since the eighties. As a composer he has shaped the sound of Koch-Sch├╝tz-Studer ensemble and has written for radio plays and film. Since the nineties he has worked with electronics as an extension of saxes and clarinets, as well as with sampling/sequencing/laptop techniques. As a reed player he is always working to define his own vocabulary and sound, making him a unique voice on the stage.
