In Peter Kowald's Ort project she has played with Evan Parker, Carlos Zingaro, Butch Morris, Joèlle Léandre, Lé Quan Ninh, among many others.

"Gunda Gottschalk rised out of my Ort-Ensemble in 1994/95 and has been member of various groups of mine since. Her inventive and creative light shines brightly among the Wuppertal musicians of the younger generation, and I regard her as one of the most interesting string players in Europe these days. Yes: Gunda!³ (Peter Kowald)*
