Bettina Schroeder manipulates sound on the electric Ukulele, pushing boundaries and definitions of conventional music. Her approach incorporates distinctive and unorthodox ingredients to create music without rules, beyond logic. Recently Bettina has joined re-formed group The Beach Bullies (check it out: LP/CD/download) and in 2017 The Containers. Thanks to Manufactured Recordings of Brooklyn, NY, 'Self-Contained' by the Containers will be released on June 16th. She frequently plays at SKRONK, a regular live event and label for improvising performers, who create brand new music through on-the-spot collaboration and improvisation. Since 2012 Bettina is a member of the Jerico Orchestra, a unique group that explores the relationship between improvised music and visual art.
