Ulrich Krieger is a saxophone player in the worlds of rock, noise, contemporary composition, and free improvised music, as well as a composer of chamber music and electronic music. He has been active in exploring the boundaries of saxophone playing in rock and noise collaborating
with Lou Reed (Metal Machine Trio, Lou Reed Band), Lee Ranaldo (Text of Light), Faust, and Merzbow. His distinct style of amplified saxophone playing exist in the abysses of rock culture, vacillating between noise, microsounds, and instrumental electronics. Krieger processes refined acoustic and quasi-electronic
sounds by elaborate instrumental amplification.
