This cassette documents one of four live performances that comprised the Singalling Distance performance series that took place at the station’s Berlin studio over the course of 2019. The performance series brought together four pioneering contemporary exponents of electro-acoustic music, all of whom were invited to explore the dynamic relationship between microphone technique, the exigencies of acoustic sound transmission and the spatial complexities of live performance.

Hamburg-based musician Birgit Ulher’s two-part, 37-minute contribution, is more abrasive and unruly in approach, but no less determined to push the trumpet beyond the bounds of its quotidian use. Originally airing 10 May 2019, Ulher uses extended speakers that are fed with radio sounds into trumpet mutes, transforming the trumpet into an acoustic chamber that modulates and warps noise in the process. The trumpet thus becomes a transmitter and receiver at the same time.

Ulher’s performance counterposes her extraordinary trumpet technique—wrenching gargles, sirens and extended billows from the instrument—to the clanging and crunches of recorded sound, creating ever-morphing scenes of jagged sound and silence.

Signalling Distance was made possible thanks to the generous support of Initiative Neue Musik Berlin. A reportage and interview with each performer was made to accompany the live performances. You can find them on the Cashmere website here:
