Biografia
Charlotte Hug, Swiss-born inter-media artist, composer, improviser and musician of the extreme. Her innovative musical-visual solo performances in distinctive locations and her interdisciplinary work have created an international furor. Hug is constantly breaking new ground with her instrument and has reinvented the viola. Her specialty is also a blend of viola and vocals using high falsetto, vibrating glottal sounds, multiphonics, and language like articulation. Hug seeks to develop instrumental and vocal techniques to their fullest extent, which has resulted in an unmistakable and unique tonal language. She has recorded an extensive discography amongst others with Elliott Sharp, Maggie Nicols, Lucas Niggli, several CDs with the Stellari String Quartet (Phil Wachsmann, Marcio Mattos & John Edwards, etc. including three solo CDs on international labels.

Having completed her studies in fine arts and classical music, she won divers awards such as "artist residences" in London, Paris, Berlin, Johannesburg, Shanghai, the international composer fellowship at the Civitella Ranieri Foundation, she was "artiste étoile" (star artist) at the world-renowned Lucerne Festival and nominated for the Classic:Next - Innovation Award 2019.

"Son-Icons" are the core of Hug's artistic work and research. Son-Icons are music to be seen, hybrids of visual art and musical notation. Hug developed a composition method with Son-Icons for interdisciplinary and intercultural contexts. Her works and room-scores are played by international ensembles, (Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble, Ensemble SuperMusique Montréal, Via Nova Choir Munich, Lucerne Festival Orchestra, Dance Company FATC Johannesburg, etc.).

An important influence and inspiration was the long-standing participation in the London improvisers Orchestra. As a result, Hug developed open concepts and conducted the SPIO São Paulo Improvisers Orchestra, the KIO the Krakow Improvisers Orchestra etc.

In addition to exhibitions, she is fully active as a concert performer, soloist, composer and conductor of her own works at major festivals in Europa, North - und Latin America, Canada, South Africa, Russia and China (SWR Donaueschinger Musiktage, Berliner Festspiele, MaerzMusik, FIMAV Festival International Musique Actuelle Victoriaville, San Francisco International Arts Festival, Festival international musicà SESC São Paulo, Festival Infecting the City in Cape Town etc.)

Hug gives master classes in improvisation and "inter-media composition". She was a teaching artist or visiting professor at McGill University Montreal, CNMAT of the University of California Berkeley, University of the Witswatersrand Johannesburg, the China Academy of Art Hangzhou, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, etc. She is the head of the international postgraduate studies Creation & Scenario in Music at the Zurich University of the Arts.
