Manuel Miethe (*1972 in Berlin) works as a musician and photographer in Berlin/Germany.
As one of the few saxophonists who have devoted themselves almost exclusively
to the soprano saxophone, he has engaged himself over the past two decades
with developing an improvisational language and body of composition for this unique instrument.
In 2010 he founded the Ensemble The Alliteration with Antonis Anissegos (p), Akira Ando (b),
Boris Bell/Maurice de Martin (dr), Gerhard Gschlößl (tb), Floros Floridis (reeds) and Nikolaus Neuser (tr).
In various different projects he collaborates with musicians such as Alexander v. Schlippenbach
(The Levitation w/ Horst Nonnenmacher + Lucìa Martìnez), Tristan Honsinger (CD: “Hanam Quintet feat. Tristan Honsinger”), saxophonists Anna Kaluza (hanam quintet) and Silke Eberhard (Die Sache), Abigail Sanders & Adam Goodwin (Tag der Kosmonauten) with the Berlin Improvisers Orchestra (BerIO) and as a guest of the London Improvisers Orchestra (LIO).
