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)
