Birgit Ulher, Petr Vrba


Label: Inexhaustible Editions

Format: CD

Genre: Experimental



Tip! “For the first duo release, Birgit Ulher stays close to her primary instrument, the trumpet. She plays that, as per usual, in combination with a radio, speakers and a voice changer. Early February 2020, she recorded a duet with Petr Vrba, also on trumpet and electronics, during a two-day met in Hamburg. Both musicians have quite a reputation when it comes to playing improvised music. Well, maybe improvised music covers only partially what they do. The addition of electronics and objects makes this part of the rich traditions of electro-acoustic music. The trumpet in the hands of these musicians becomes an object to play with it, and sometimes, not always, this may result in a sound that one may recognize as the sound of the trumpet. And sometimes, one recognizes none of this. It then may sound like a voice, or a noise, if you will. And maybe it is noise, with the electronics, radio and voice changer doing their jobs. This happens in the opening minutes of ‘Reflexion’, the first piece here. Here the duo introduces their methods, all of them. The other sounds, the not to be recognized trumpet and the clear trumpet, all condensed in quite a compelling piece of music. The next five pieces explore this further but are now compartmentalized. First, there is a piece with just a few trumpet/vocalizations or sustaining trumpets with a few additional sounds, using the environment in which this was recorded (‘Dissipation’). That sits next to a more traditional piece of improvised music.” - Frans de Waard
