Radio Tweet

Ulher & Wassermann



radio tweet

Ute Wassermann: voice, bird whistles
Birgit Ulher: trumpet, radio mutes, speaker, objects

The Wassermann soundworld takes form within waveflows and fluctuating particles. Trumpeter Birgit Ulher joins her in that zone of articulation, set apart from the rules and expectations of instrumental as well as vocal music. Ulher uses radio sounds in addition to her trumpet. Radios, more than ever in the digital age, home in on stations. But the eight improvisations on Radio Tweet swerve away from occupied frequencies into unmarked airwaves.
