VETTER, Michael German
Michael Vetter, born in 1943, studied theology and music. He is a master of overtone singing. His interest is in using different media (language, painting, photography, theatre, music) for the realisation of what he refers to as "Transverbal": Language is movement is music.
After thirteen years in Japan living primarily as a Zen monk, today he lives withdrawn for the greater part of his time, painting, writing and gardening in the middle of his olive grove on the Monte Amiata. He founded his Accademia Capraia here in 1991, a "school in the art of living" operating according to his concepts.
