BIRGIT UHLER / HEDDY BOUBAKER – UPSIDE DOWN

VITAL WEEKLY = number 635 – week 28

BIRGIT UHLER & HEDDY BOUBAKER – UPSIDE DOWN (CDR by Why Not Ltd)
The first release is a duo recording with Birgit Uhler, who plays trumpet, radio and objects. The six pieces were recorded in Hamburg in 2007. They play their instruments like objects like so many do these days. There is however one thing which makes them a bit different and that is the volume they use. In this area its not uncommon to play things at a soft level, but here the instruments are loud (well, relatively speaking) and clear. They play some intense pieces, exploring their instruments in unusual manner and making some intense listening. A very fine work that has the right length of thirty-two minutes, which requires your full concentration. (Frans De Waard)

40 copies limited edition

There are 2 things i like to talk about this magic number:-)

Most people will think selling 40 copies of cds is nothing, i think so too, at the begining. Then (whoever that tried) knew that that’s no true. Selling 40 copies of cds is not easy. If a distro are willing to carry 5 copies, you will need to look for 8 distros. And if you are in the market you know 8 distros are a big number. And further more is, no many distro will carry 5 copies, they take 3 or 4. Mostly on consignment, then they send you the cds back after years.

On the other hands, most people will think that the musician(s) will not interested in making 40 copies limited edition cdR. That’s partly correct, because some of them do too, the idea¬† behind of the WHY NOT LTD is to make the good recording available, to see the daylight, even just a limited copy, and the musician can re-release the album else where on other label, on net etc… so why not??
