The fascination in modifying the sounds of the vibraphone and the marimba live, in using improvisation to enhance the entire sound, and in adding unusual percussion and drum sounds, are the ingredients for "Bouché", the current solo program of Berlin vibraphonist Franz Bauer.

Franz Bauer works with the most diverse parameters in classical music, jazz, rock and contemporary music. Using the approach of a contemporary improviser, he produces an extremely tasteful intersection of these genres that are often perceived in such different ways.
