Gschlössl, Ullmann, Leipnitz, and Fink improvise as composers would do. From scratch they create a holistic sound sculpture – each time unique and unpredictable – always with a formal approach. Haves was invited to create with them using analogue electronics. In the moment and without overdubbing he becomes the fifth element in GULFH of Berlin.
“Few improvising artists can boast the stream of creative ideas that seem to bubble from Gebhard Ullmann. Ullmann focuses on the fundamentals of improvised jazz: melody, sound, syncopation and technical excellence, but what makes his writing and playing so successful is his seemingly neverending innovative nature: without grasping for neoteric straws, Ullmann's performances are grounded in the past but plunge forward deliberately toward modernity. Ullmann leaves the strong mark of a disciplined sculptor of sound, who speaks his own compelling language.” — Steve Loewy, Cadence

Mahakala: when switching from 2 to 3 tracks I hear crackling noises (wav and aiff files). Maybe it's because the first two tracks are 48kHz and the third is 44.1kHz; why?
And the music great! mazur2103
