Review: CD “Pulsation”

Z´Kay (Klenkes, Aachen) 6/94

Christoph Haberer has created a fine album: "pulsation". He has developed his percussive sound experiments of Drümmele Maa and turned into a wanderer between the worlds and the cultures. Haberer shows that he understands the relationship between the rhythm and melody of European, African and Asian sound cultures, and he has managed to create a truly breathtaking tightrope walk. Inspired by a train journey in India, a fun fair in France, a Danish song and Mozart, "pulsation" embodies the concept of a European, instrumentally enhanced Gamelan Orchestra.

Jazzthing 6/1994

A journey to the borders between New Age, imaginary folklore, new music and trendy fusion – who would have thought that such sounds originate from the head and hands of the Drümmele Maa percussionist, Christoph Haberer, who recently played sensitive, wise jazz together with Lee Konitz? " Haberer combines electronic trumpet and glittering synthesizer sounds with the down-to-earth sound of a didgeridoo, the natural wooden timbre of the marimba and the percussive knocking of Southern Indian drums, and he opens up a beautiful old and new world!
