Based in Basel, Switzerland, Fritz has toured the world, playing at festivals and presenting concerts in Europe, Canada, the USA, the Middle East, China, the Baltic States, Russia, Kirgistan, Japan and Australia. In-residence in all schools of the Victorian College of the Arts in late September, Fritz will be playing and improvising on concert with Speak; together in concert for Ménage they will present Double Exposition, Fritz’s most important work.

Fritz Hauser and Speak Percussion have a long personal association; their artistic partnership is borne out of close personal regard for each other. Join them for an evening of unforgettable percussion. Along with Double Exposition, they will also be playing the World Premiere performance of Sea of Tranquility, by Melbournian composer Stuart Greenbaum, works by Mark Pollard, Frank Zappa and Balanescu, arranged by B A Jones and Mark Pollard. This concert will be designed by acclaimed Swiss architect Boa Baumann.
Experience a rare collaboration between some of the world’s finest artists, musical and visual. Fritz Hauser "shouldn't on any account be missed" Richard Cook & Brian Morton (Penguin Book Guide to Jazz)
