I am very pleased to a part of a a wonderful new CD release by trio D.O.R (Jamie Drouin, Lance Austin Olsen and Mathieu Ruhlmann). The four of us worked together in the summer of 2012 to record an array of material – one piece was included in the Wandelweiser und so weiter CD box set on Another Timbre. It was an absolute pleasure to work with these three lovely gents whose work is thoughtful, nuanced and deeply sensitive. Two pieces that we created in these sessions are included on this wonderful new trio CD release on caduc., HESTEKUR.

Each artist selected one of Olsen’s stunning visual works as a score for a new piece of music. It was a pleasure to work with Lance’s gorgeous Blood & Memory #2 to create this new work, which i am very pleased with.
