Gebhard Ullman Trio + JA Deane

Presented by Earshot Jazz & Nonsequitur, with support from the Berlin Senate Cultural Affairs Department and the Goethe Institute.

German multi-reed virtuoso Gebhard Ullmann is considered one of the leading personalities in today’s Berlin and international music scenes. His Clarinet Trio with Jurgen Kupke and Michael Thieke employs minimalistic techniques, overtones, and multiphonics to give the impression of more than three players. J.A. Deane (Dino) has performed with John Zorn, Jon Hassell, and Butch Morris, adapting Morris’ conduction technique to his own Out of Context ensemble in New Mexico. Long known as a trombonist, he now plays a custom-made dulcimer/guqin, layering melodic cells, prickly harmonics, and lush, bowed backgrounds through his assortment of electronics.
