Preview Mix:



ute_filmstillUte Kanngiesser : Cello
Ute has played cello since early childhood: church and chamber music, theatre and film music. Over the last 10 years, since moving from Berlin to London, she has played unscripted / improvised music almost exclusively, and developed a voice that (she feels) has few direct / external references. Currently, she works most regularly with Seymour Wright and Paul Abbott and reads and writes for the IIInIII (nommit) language experiment.

“intense exploration of the timbral possibilities of the cello and her immaculate sense of placement, and a strong, if at times oblique, rhythmic sensibility that has vivified many musical situations, from AMM to the LIO.” – Muddy Ditch

“…moves with the grain of her instrument. But she hijacks that grain …” – Philip Clark, The Wire
