More Info

"Gregory Büttner plays sounds from a computer through various small speakers, which Birgit Ulher uses as mutes for her trumpet. This way the trumpet sounds and the electroacoustic sounds are modulated by the acoustic resonance chamber of the trumpet. The trumpet is simultaneously a transmitter and a receiver.

Recorded January 2009 by Büttner/Ulher at Birgit‘s flat. Mastered by Guy Saldanha.

About the Artist:
Birgit Ulher studied the visual arts, which still has an important influence on her music. Since the early eighties she has been involved in free improvisation and experimental music.Since then she has ‚established a distinguished grammar of sounds beyond the open trumpet sound‘ (jazzdimensions.de). Her work includes solo-performances, as well as dance-projects, beside her working-groups she plays often in occasional / once only groupings and collaborates with improvisers all over Europe and USA.
Current projects include the solo project ‚Radio Silence No More‘, duos with Ute Wassermann, Gino Robair, Damon Smith, Heiner Metzger, Gregory Büttner, Nordzucker (with Lars Scherzberg and Michael Maierhof) and the trio with Lou Mallozzi and Michael Zerang.

Gregory Büttner studied communication design in Hamburg, with a specialization in audiovisual work. Since 2000 he got his focus on soundart and electroacoustic compositions. In 2004 he launched his label 1000fussler which releases experimental music in small editions. In 2001 he founded his duo für diesen abend together with Stefan Funck and often accompanied by visuals from Katrin Bethge (overhead-projections). He works together with artists like Rhodri Davies, Birgit Ulher, Chris Heenan, et al.. His music released by labels like 1000füssler, Firework Edition, Anthropometrics/Aufabwegen, Grünrekorder, Compost and Height.
