Ulrike Haage, composer, pianist, sound artist & radioplay author, is one of the most multifaceted artists in Germany today. Since 2004 she has released highly respected Solo CDs, Sélavy (2004), Weisses Land (2006), in:finitum (2011), Maelstrom (2015) and Himmelsbaum. Elegantly shifting between Jazz, Experiment & Classical Music.
Her audio pieces impressively show Haage's inspiring & ongoing involvement with artists in other disciplines such as film. The soundtracks for the documentaries Zwiebelfische, Gold Rush, Meret Oppenheim, Berlin 1945 as well as the music for Doris Dörrie’s movie Fukushima mon amour are all characterised by an almost imperceptible fusion with the visual.
Awards(i.a.): German Jazz Award (Albert-Mangelsdorff-Preis); North German Film Award (special music price); Documentary Filmscore Prize.
„An adjective stands out: eclectic. Then, others come to mind; still, light, crystalline.“
„Ulrike Haage proves herself to be an extraordinary sound architect. Every single tone and sound possesses meaning, every moment of suspension integrates into the structure, every song is a piece of art.“ „Haage creates a maximum mood with a minimum of tones“
Newest releases: „A Funeral march for the First Cosmonaut“ featuring Ulrike Haage, Claudio Puntin (Gagarinette) & Christina Andersson (Sopran) & „Himmelsbaum“ (Solo Piano CD) in 2020.
