descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The second album by the quartet Ember after the debut Oullh d'baham on Euphorium in 2006 this album features even more energetic and precise pieces ranging from free jazz, contemporary classic to noisy electro-acoustic collages.

The pieces were recorded in a three-hour session before a concert during the Ahornfelder Festival in Leipzig in 2008. Five of the pieces ended up on the CD and were edited by Alexander Schubert - it can be seen as a mixture of a studio and a live album. The idea behind the selection and editing of the material was to produce an album that would not fall into the often seen structures of improvised concerts with the long bows of searching for material but rather to have distinct and clearly separated pieces with precisely structured parts. In this sense the album neglects the process of searching a little with the benefit of being as compact as possible. In this sense this album can bee seen as Schubert's view of the quartet's music.

The members of Ember all live in different cities and come together a few times a year for concerts and recordings. The ability to combine minimal contemporary sound collages with outbursts of free jazz and electro-acoustic sound sculptures has been well received by the audience and can be seen as the key feature for a diverse and complex approach to improvised music.

Swiss saxophone player Urs Leimgruber is a well-established figure in improvised music known for his skilled extended playing techniques. The young drummer Christian Lillinger from Berlin who also plays in the band Hyperactive Kid is outstanding because of his energetic and breathtakingly fast playing. Leipzig based Oliver Schwerdt contributes a wide variety of free jazz and prepared piano sounds to the project benefitting from his experience as a organizer of many improvised ensemble projects. The composer and improvisator Alexander Schubert from Hamburg uses instrumental based acoustic and digital material to create the electronic elements of the quartet."-Ember MySpace page


Artist Biographies:

"Christian Lillinger (born April 21, 1984 in Lübben ) is a drummer, composer and percussionist of modern creative style and new improvisational music.

Lillinger studied at the University of Music Carl Maria von Weber Dresden at Günter Sommer from 2000 to 2004. Between 2001 and 2003 he was a member of the Bundesjugendjazzorchester.

Lillinger plays in the trio Gropper | Graupe | Lillinger, until 2015 under the name Hyperactive Kid, with the saxophonist Philipp Gropper and the guitarist Ronny Graupe, where he is largely confined to the conventional drum kit. In 2008, he composed his first band Christian Lillingers Grund, whose first two released albums were released at Clean Feed Records at the end of 2009 and 2013. In addition Lillinger works as a sideman with well-known musicians such as Rolf Kühn, Joachim Kühn, Miroslav Vitouš, Beat Furrer, Rudi Mahall, John Schröder, Barre Phillips, Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky, Wadada Leo Smith, Frank Gratkowski, Simon Nabatov, Tobias Delius and Axel Dörner, Thomas Lehn, Michael Wollny, Louis Scyvis, Bruno Chevillon, David Liebman, Edmund Lehmugruber, Theo Jörgensmann, John Edwards, Greg Cohen, William Parker, Joe Lovano and Tony Malaby. Since 2004 he has been working continuously in the EUPHORIUM, the international ensemble of contemporary performing arts and music around the Leipzig-based Oliver Schwerdt, especially in the trio with Schwerdt alias Elan Pauer and Ernst-Ludwig Petrowsky. Since 2009, Lillinger has also been working in the Klaviertrio Grünen with Achim Kaufmann and Robert Landfermann, who presented a first album on the Portuguese label Clean Feed Records in 2010. Since 2010, Lillinger has also worked in the trio Dell Lillinger Westergaard, which also performed with John Tchicai. In 2011 he founded the Trio Starlight with Petter Eldh and Wanja Slavin, who moved his debut CD 2013 to the Swiss label Unit Records. With Eldh and Slavin he also founded the Quartet Amok Amor with the American trumpeter Peter Evans, who released his first album of the same name in 2015.

Lillinger is also a member of the following groups: Rolf Kühn Unit, Henrik Walsdorff Trio, Pascal Niggenkempervision 7, Ronny Graupes Spoom, Schmittmenge Meier, Marc Schmolling Trio, Wanja Slavin Quintett, Carl Ludwig Hübschs Drift, Hübschacht, Uwe Steinmetz Stream Ensemble, The upper class, Ember, Gerhard Gschlößl's group of four, Gerhard Gschlößls G9, KUU! And also plays with Joachim Kühn in trio.

From 2012 to 2013, Christian Lillinger was a member of the board of the Union of German Jazzmusicians."
