FRAUFELD is a project that includes the development of an album series, presenting the music of women who deal with contemporary forms of composition and improvisation.
The aim is to make the large number and variety of female musicians working in this wide field visible for the broad public, for promoters and the media as well as for established and prospective musicians.
Acting together in order to strengthen everybody's individual path is fundamental concern of FRAUFELD.
FRAUFELD was initiated by pianist Verena Zeiner and flutist Sara Zlanabitnig. It emerged 2016 as part of the musicians' platform FREIFELD and its label Freifeld Tontraeger, founded in 2011 by drummer and producer Alexander Yannilos and pianist Georg Vogel.
FRAUFELD is being considered as a long-term project. The series will be extended periodically. In order to ensure the widest possible perspective and to involve as many musicians as possible, there will be alternating curators for each additional album.
