h i l d e

h i l d e is curious, melancholic and brave. She embraces, disperses and puts together free improvisation with composed elements. h i l d e is Julia Brüssel (violin) , Marie Daniels (voice), Maria Trautmann (trombone) and Emily Wittbrodt (cello).

This is hardcore free music improv at its best: intense, focused, quick changing, challenging to the listeners and musicians alike and the excitement factor is up high. Vocalist Marie Daniels is particularly strong throughout, glad to hear her do her thing, cast her up there with Sainko, Iva Bittova & Catherine Jauniaux. What makes this disc so special is that all four members are equally strong, focused and intense improvisers. The interactions are often astonishing! – Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG (New York City)

»Klangbiotope zwischen Abstraktion und Schönheit entstehen, wenn die Band Hilde frei improvisiert. Die Fähigkeiten dieser vier Musikerinnen, allesamt Mitglieder des ›The Dorf/Umland‹-Kollektivs, sind spektakulär und vereinen sich hier in gemeinsam gelebter Freiheit.« — Stefan Pieper, nrwjazz.net
