The november 2015 edition of Gonzo (circus) magazine will feature an article about my work. Anyone who purchases the magazine will get a free Mind The Gap cd featuring a fine selection of the newest experimental music.
This Mind The Gap edition includes also my composition “Where Are You ?” for prepared piano, temple gongs, slit drums and analogue electronic sounds. The tape part of “Where Are You ?” is based on field recordings from my trip to Rwanda in 2011. I manipulated them via a reel to reel tape recorder and a Walkman cassette player. The instrumental score is a musical translation and interpretation of a text about the Rwandan Genocide from April 1994.
iii Instrument Inventors Initiative is currently in residency in MoKS (Mooste, Estonia) all month of October. I have been invited to join them (for which I feel very honored). Next to developing new work in the relaxing and inspiring environment of Mooste, we’re also touring around the Baltics. In the coming weeks I’ll take part in gigs and public presentations inÜle Heli Festival in Talinn, No Patent Pending # 15 in Mooste and the No Patent Pending # 16in Helsinki.
Special thanks to Q-O2 for co-supporting my artist residency here in MoKS
