BETTINA SCHROEDER

Since 2012, Bettina is a member of the JERICO ORCHESTRA, playing electric ukulele.

Jerico Orchestra is a collective exploring the relationship between improvised music and visual art. Their performances have all the power of punk (Suicide, Throbbing Gristle, Vince Taylor) combined with the finesse of the classical avant-garde. Past gigs include Tate Britain, Camden Arts Centre, Merge Festival, Deptford X and MK Gallery. “If you like the sound of silk worms eating mulberry, whilst your kettle is on the boil with twig tea inside, you’ll really hate this”, Karen Eliot, (Home & Garden, March 2012)   cargocollective.com/jerico-orchestra
