Sabine Vogel
born in Munich, studied jazz-flute at the Anton Bruckner Conservatory in Linz, Austria.
In 2000 Sabine Vogel moved to Berlin, since 2005 she has been living in Potsdam.
As a flautist Sabine Vogel focuses on sound and improvisation, using extended techniques both acoustic as well as electronic, creating a very personal contemporary language for the flute. Discovering and producing the unheard, the intimate, in relation to sound production within the flute, is her main focus of exploration.

She takes the sounds from the inside of her flute – the microcosm of her flute world – and transports these sounds, with the help of amplification, into a sound-able-hear-able world. Bringing what is inside into the outside. She then combines this world of sound with self-made field recordings- the natural macrocosm of existing sound – forming a composed mixture between the macro and microcosmic. Recently she became more and more interested in site specific work, doing sound installation combined with live playing in natural environment.

Sabine Vogel has played as a soloist or in various formations on festivals like: ISEA RUHR, Ultima Festival/ Oslo, EMS Festival/ Stockholm, Ultraschall Festival/ Berlin, High Zero/Baltimore, Internationale Ferienkurse Darmstadt, Audiocraft, Oxford etc

Her current projects are: ORNIS; an audio-visual Duo with british artist Kathy Hinde, a Duo with australian pianist/organist Chris Abrahams, Landscape Quartet – an enviromental, soundart project with Bennett Hogg, Matt Sansom, Stefan Östersjö –
She is a member of the „Splitter Orchester“, based in Berlin
Sabine Vogel has a lectureship for flute at the University Potsdam

She has played and worked a.o. with Anthony Braxton, Arto Lindsay, Tony Buck, Jim Denley, Chris Abrahams, Alex Nowitz, Malin Bång, Andrea Neumann, Schwimmer,Shannon Cooney, the Walter Thompson Soundpainting Orchestra.


Passepartout Duo
Ever since they began collaborating in 2015, the musicians of Passepartout Duo have been known for their tireless advocacy of new music, ideas that cross aesthetic boundaries, and the compelling films they create. Driven by their shared values of music, people, and travel, Nicoletta Favari & Christopher Salvito’s simple and elegant approach has already earned them a reputation as a thoughtful and promising emerging group within the contemporary music field.

The work of the duo has been described as, “globalized and far-reaching and provocative and, yes, even beautiful” by the Lake Champlain Weekly. In addition to performing across dozens of countries and scores of US states, the duo has been invited to perform at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival in England, the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival in Connecticut, the Havana Contemporary Music Festival in Cuba, and the KlangBasel Festival in Switzerland. Being avid collaborators, a recent project of the group involved composing and recording music for Belgian-based animator Anna Van Riel’s short film Mixed Materials. As educators, the members of Passepartout Duo offer a variety of classes and engagements for students; most recently, they were ensemble in residence for the composition department at University of Miami’s Frost School of Music.

Their upcoming engagements include the filming of Molly Joyce’s piece Less is More, and a two-month-long residency in Iceland focusing on the theme Skammdegi, the Icelandic word for “The Shortest Day.”
