My artistic residency at Lijiang Studio is coming to an end. Tomorrow is my last full day and last chance to make some fieldrecordings in rural Yunnan. Fridaymorning I may witness a Dongba ritual, in the afternoon I’ll be flying to Shanghai for an extended weekend of fieldrecording in a urban environment. Next Tuesday I’ll be crossing the Pacific Ocean direction Montalvo Arts, California, USA for my second artist residency this summer.

Received – totally out of the blue – the wonderful news this morning that I got awarded an artistic residency (and stipend) at Lijiang Studio in Yunnan, China. Tremendously honored and humbled. Thank You !
