Proud to share the news that our improv collective Varkenshond (BE/NL) will be releasing its third album this Autumn 2017, via Belgian record label Aguirre Records. No audiocassette release this time, yet a nice little step back into analogue history. All is to be issued on good ol’skool vinyl in a limited edition of 180 pieces only. Live Varkenshond performances will happen from December onwards in both Belgium and Holland. Dates will follow.
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.
