Are you looking for an improvised music festival in Europe? Perhaps you will find one here on this site.
Ute Wassermann, voice / D
Birgit Ulher, trumpet / D
Knowing Birgit Ulher you could expect something in the vein of Berlin reductionism. But even though monochrome noise is indeed part of the trumpet's sound spectrum this duo's approach is full of dense and vibrant energy.
Ute Wassermann's completely unpretentious style takes close listening to reveal its wealth of expressive means culminating in overtone singing, whistling and percussive clicks. Entirely refraining from verbal or tonal allusions, the singer, in collaboration with the trumpet, builds a web of sounds and tones mainly in the treble register, that makes it difficult for the listener to distinguish the voices.
Progressing in parallel or merging in a hand-in-glove consonance, these two hunters of art and gatherers of substance manage to build their common material tests by focusing on one fine nuance after the other. Thus, we can look forward to an improvising encounter full of spellbinding adventures and playful surprises.
Too good to be missed!
