"Ute Kanngiesser has played cello since early childhood, and for more than a decade, has only played unscripted, improvised music - solo and in collaboration with other musicians and composers in London and internationally. An important part of her work has developed in relationship to other art forms such as writing, dance, film, and site specific performance. More recently, she has begun to experiment with open form compositions, writing semi-graphic scores as a way of recording music, that can be retrieved later on and in new ways.

Recent collaborations have been with Evie Ward, Daniel Blumberg, Billy Steiger, Tom Wheatley, Crystabel Riley, Seymour Wright, Paul Abbott, Keira Greene, John Butcher, Eddie Prévost and Jennifer Allum."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Three violin and cello improvisations recorded in a church bell tower. Luke Pagarani's sleeve notes point out that the separation from a traditional concert or recording space means that "neither Hackney nor tradition pause respectfully for art to commence". Indeed, the first things we hear are the mechanisms and chimes of the bell tower, its rhythmic pattern offering a springboard for the fluent, sparkling improvisations that follow. Allum and Kanngiesser are both key contributors to the most recent generation of musicians associated with Eddie Prévost's weekly improvisation workshops, and the expected focus on the materials to hand and how they can be moulded comes to the fore. Vibrant, twisting streams of string intertwine, converse and argue with each other, dipping away to reveal the tick of the clock and the sound of traffic outside as the three tracks are recorded in different rooms of the tower and at different degrees of remove from the city."-Richard Pinnell, The Wire
