The horizon is vast and the imagination plentiful. As is the willingness to engage fully in the moment. Hilde is curious, lyrical and dedicated. She embraces, scatters and merges, uniting free improvisation with composed elements.
Julia Brüssel (violin), Maria Trautmann (trombone), Marie Daniels (voice) and Emily Wittbrodt (cello) have been playing together as Hilde since 2018 and released their debut CD "Open" on Umland Records in 2020. Their second album will be released in 2024.
At times it’s a twisted, dense "musique concrete", then again there are flashes of imaginative allusions to Renaissance or early Baroque music. But it is not "Hilde" to stay in these rich resources and revolve around themselves, more and more song structures peel out of these sound scenarios. As intricate as the structures are, a direct "instant composing" dominates in Hilde. Thereby it goes from a freely proliferating individuality directly into a common center. To venture out of the abstract into the lyrical, that’s what it’s all about.
