Ute Wassermann is a German composer/performer, improviser and interpreter of contemporary music.
She studied at the Hamburg Academy of Fine Arts with Henning Christiansen, specializing in sound installation and vocal performance, and studied classical singing with Carol Plantaamura (San Diego) and Arnold van Mill (Hamburg). Since 1984 she has developed many special multivoiced vocal techniques, catalogued by register, timbre and articulative sequences, which may be deconstructed and/or superimposed and used to explore spatial resonance phenomena. In 1993-94 she received a scholarship for a year at Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart.
She has given numerous performances of her own solo work and performs regularly with many improvising musicians including duos with Richard Barrett (live electronics) and with Birgit Ulher (trumpet), also with Jaap Blonk (voice), Matthias Kaul and Sven Åke Johansson (percussion), Peter Kowald (contrabass) and Aleksander Kolkowski (violin) in venues ranging from international festivals (Japan, Australia, Hong Kong, Buenos Aires) to lofts. Ute has collaborated frequently with composers who have created works especially for her voice, including Henning Christiansen, Richard Barrett, Chaya Czernowin, Hans-Joachim Hespos (ballati and flio), Ana Maria Rodriguez (Code Switching) and Sven Åke Johansson, and has performed with numerous ensembles and orchestras including ASKO, Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin, Elision Ensemble, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, Basel Sinfonietta and Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra. She has performed in music theater works by Chaya Czernowin (Pnima at the Munich Biennale 2000), Matthias Kaul and Salvatore Sciarrino among others.
