Ulher, Birgit / Robair, Gino

Ulher, Birgit / Robair, Gino: Sputter (Creative Sources)
Label: Creative Sources    
Released in: Portugal    

"You know what it sounds like already just from the title. Trumpeter Birgit Ulher's rapidly catching up with Ernesto Rodrigues as The Person Who's Released The Most Albums On Creative Sources - this is her fourth for the label (and the fifth, 500g, with Lars Scherzberg and Michael Maierhof is hard on its heels) and finds her in the company of Gino Robair on "energized surfaces, voltage made audible". Of course it's not all sputter; there are plenty of crashes, squeaks, growls and gurgles too, and quite a bit of toybox sci-fi fun on the opening "Capacitance Blubber". Robair is a fabulously resourceful percussionist, and someone we should hear much more of (and see more of on this side of the pond), lightning fast and razor sharp. But Ulher matches him sputter for sputter. Like Axel Dörner, she's got an extraordinary arsenal of New Trumpet Techniques at her disposal, but can play the hell out of the instrument when she has to - check out "The Downy Monsters". If Brötzmann's Tentet is a sonic rugby scrum and Flaherty / Corsano a bare knuckle boxing match, Ulher and Robair are the aural equivalent of the World Fencing Championships. Touché!"-Dan Warburton (Paris Transatlantic)
