Barbara Buchholz studied music at the University of Bielefeld. In the 1980s she toured as bass player with the women’s orchestra Reichlich Weiblich. Later, the recipient of numerous music awards, she played and sang in projects which crossed the boundaries of art, music, poetry and dance. As a composer and performer, Barbara Buchholz has worked for a wide range of theatres; as artistic director she conceived and produced “Tap It Deep”, a unique blend of midified tap dance and new jazz, as well as “Theremin: Berlin–Moscow”, a collaboration with the Russian computer painter Olga Kumeger, among others.

Barbara Buchholz’s current musical works focus on the theremin, the only existing musical instrument played without touch. As a master student of Lydia Kavina, the grandniece of the inventor of the theremin, Lev Thermen, she has revived the tradition of this instrument, finding new applications and means of expression in various kinds of contemporary music. Together with Lydia Kavina she founded the project “Touch! Don’t Touch!”, a workshop for new compositions for the theremin.
