Triune Heart / Umiak
In Triune Heart, imagination, poetry and musicality create a space for multi-layered images and scenes through movement, voice and text. The performers touch on human themes and concerns by linking different temporal levels. Through ever-changing constellations and encounters as well as individual action within the collective, contrasting qualities co-exist, which at times merge into one another. Connection, transformation and memory are elements that become one voice through the three bodies in the space.

Alfred Zimmerlin: Cello
The Duo Umiak invites the cellist Alfred Zimmerlin to a free improvisation. Texture-oriented playing, homogeneity of the sound material, alert interactions have just as much a place in this music as the search for breaks, absurdities and the allowance of the "inappropriate", equal trio sound as well as the conciseness of individuality. Rather than consciously avoiding means of composition, the trio wants to integrate motivic and rhythmic design, use interaction, emotionality, structural thinking, traditional sounds and melodies in a new context.
