Adam Greenberg

The BOX, outside of which this band almost always searches for sounds, together, against each other - creating tapestry and mood of exceptional quality. The three Zurich-based musicians (Claudia Ulla Binder, Dieter Ulrich, and Christian Weber - piano, drums, bass, respectively) are solid senders in the improvised music scene and have performed all over the European and Asian continents. Combining passion, emotion and intellect easily, they perform improvised music that reflects structure while still in the process of construction. Engineered by Martin Pearson (Keith Jarrett, Pierre Favre), BOX is the fifth recording in Origin's Zurich Series, a collection of improvised projects curated by master Swiss bassist Jonas Tauber.
