Early in her life, german Musician and Performer Verena Barie (1994) found her passion for music perfectly reflected in the recorder – the archetypical sound and architecture of the instrument, the intriguing and beautiful  simplicity.

Therefore she moved to Amsterdam to study in the Bachelors with Erik Bosgraaf and Jorge Isaac in 2013. Her enthusiasm for contemporary music and performance grew in Amsterdam´s thriving and diverse art scene. She enjoys creating and improvising, especially with live electronics (Max MSP, SuperCollider, Arduino and Ableton Live), as well as composition with lessons by Jorrit Tamminga , Wim Henderickx and Joel Bons. In her master degree in Live Electronics at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with teachers Jos Zwaanenburg, Marcel Wirckx and Jorge Isaac, she is fully focussed on developing multi-disciplinary and interactive audience performances.

Next to several competition prices in Germany and being awarded with the “Gaudeamus muziekweek prijz” for contemporary music in the Netherlands, Verena has toured all over Europe, as well as Mexico as performer of early as well as contemporary music. Verena´s ensembles include

** Lagrime Consort – a price-winning recorder trio focused on vocal renaissance music**

**The Royal Wind Music – a 13 members recorder ensemble touring all over the world with its fresh and elegant concert repertoires**

**Queens of Noise – a contemporary improvisation trio with no fear for screams and terror, a group founded together with Tatiana Rosa**
