Ulrike Brand / Gino Robair / Richard Scott - TIPPFEELER
Improvised performance for acoustic cello, modified percussion and analog synthesizer

Ulrike Brand's focus is on multimedial projects between conceptual sound-exploring, improvisation and performance. In this context she is mainly working with Olaf Rupp, Tomomi Adachi as well as visual artists and choreographers. Because of her experience in performing contemporary classical compositions in the past decades, she can draw upon all the varieties of different extended playing techniques that are used there. She uses sounds and noises as equivalent material, pitch is treated as a continuum and the whole body of the instrument can create sounds. This is also accentuating the gestural element of the performance. www.ulrikebrand-cello.com

Gino Robair has performed and recorded with Tom Waits, Anthony Braxton, John Zorn, Nina Hagen, Terry Riley, Lou Harrison, John Butcher, Derek Bailey, Peter Kowald, Otomo Yoshihide, and the ROVA Saxophone Quartet. He is one of the "25 innovative percussionists" included in the book Percussion Profiles (SoundWorld, 2001), as well as a founding member of the Splatter Trio and Pink Mountain. His opera, I, Norton, based on the life of Norton I, Emperor of the United States, has been performed throughout North America and Europe. www.ginorobair.com
