Silhouettes of Silence


Christof Vonderau (guitar)

Christof Vonderaulives in Berlin. After a classical musical education, two years in Brazil participating in different musical projects, ethnomusical studies with stays in New York and Jamaica, he started to develop an expres-sive and calm music resulting in co-operations with artists, theaters and filmmakers.
Already Christof's Solo-CD-Debut Polar (1996) – dedicated to the Danish Greenland explorer Knud Rasmussen – explores the creative range between composition and improvisation, sound and silence, tradition and modernism. It received European wide good response and has been licensed for use in various documentary films.
'Music for me is a place of original expression, where the listener, when he became familiar with it or the context is inviting him (i.e. a film) enjoys to return. The balance between the conscious und unconscious elements makes personal experience possible.'
