Edith Lettner

(born in 1964, in Linz, resident in Vienna) musician and painter. She received saxophone instruction from Hannes Meixner, Leo Wright and Manfred Balasch, and learned jazz theory with Uli Scherer. She also learned to play the Armenian wind instrument known as the duduk. For Lettner, collaborating with artists from different cultures is an important source of inspiration. Alongside jazz, she deals intensively with eastern and African music, and projects bringing together various artistic expressive means (catharsis, tone pictures). She plays with artists and formations including phone 3 phone, Stefan Wagner Group, keba Cissoko, Celia Mara, Afro Manderg and Zohren Joova. Her compositions can be heard live and on CDS, as well as in the role of theater and film music. In 2005 she founded  her own band, freemotion.
