Büdi Siebert

Artist of the Month | March 2014


Büdi uses the Marimba System:

“I always liked to play instruments in my personal way. I had to forget the technique and find my way. I began to grab an instrument, and played on it, when I needed that for the music I was working on. When I detected then marimba in the studio I was producing my music in the 80s, I fell in love with it, and began to play and use it. Later I bought it, and found out about the unique sound of different mallets, and finale the exquisite sound of playing with my fingers.

K&K adapted their marimba pickup system for my personal needs, and I was able to play with Illenbergers Circle in Concerts with loud drums and a kind of rocking Band. This would not have been possible without the K&K system, and its my pleasure now for nearly 30 years to touch the marimba with my fingers, and hear it! A wonderful sound.”

”Music is a possibility to open certain parts – if you take it in. You can discover new worlds, ecstasy or silence, you can get consolation, happiness, vividness, beauty… Music cannot be explained, even if it can be felt directly. Music is magic which is known by everyone and which is needed by everyone. Now, imagine the world without music“

”Emotions are held back in our culture. And music gives us, what was held back from us – no matter if we just hear it or play it by ourselves… Moreover, music is a good medium, to set piled-up emotions free; you can express them completely, without hurting someone else.”
