Birgit Ulher, a visiting artist from Hamburg, is involved in free improvisation and experimental music. She works mainly on extending the sounding possibilities of the trumpet by using splitting sounds, multi-phonics, and granular sounds and has developed her own extended techniques and preparations for producing these sounds. Besides this material research she is especially interested in the relation between sound and silence.
