This Wednesday, May 18 I will perform a solo set for Experimentik, a monthly series for new & experimental music in Berlin. I will share the bill with Léo Dupleix.
Later this week i will travel to Oslo, Norway for a solo performance on Saturday May 21 at the longstanding All Ears Festival. I am thrilled to be heading back to Oslo, as i haven’t visited & performed there since 2013!
This week – Wednesday April 27 & Thursday April 28 – I will be at Café Oto in London (UK) for two nights of performances. On Wednesday i will present ‘A Piece of Work‘ on a shared program with James Rushford (solo). On Thursday our duo Ora Clementi will perform together for the first time since Jan 2020 – a set of material related to our 2021 album Sylva Sylvarum on Black Truffle Records. Thursday night will be a mini-Black Truffle night also featuring solo sets by Judith Hamann and Oren Ambarchi.
Really looking forward to being back at Café Oto & in London after the past few years away, and very excited to bring this music to a live audience!
I’m looking forward to performing as part of a wonderful 2-night program curated by Swedish-Finish artist Marja Ahti for the 5th edition of the Ausland (Berlin) series Craving Coincidence. It’s a beautiful program featuring; Marja Ahti, Nico Matti-Ahti & Topias Tiheäsalo, James Rushford & Judith Hamann on the first night – Thursday, February 3, and Catherine Lamb & Lucy Railton and myself on the Friday, February 4. In order to allow for more space in these times the event will take place at WABE.
Full program details and links to advance tickets can be found on the Ausland site here.
This weekend from ThursdayOctober 21 – Sunday October 24 an ambitious 4-day event titled The Sound of Distance, will activate the various spaces in and around the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) with an array of performances and installations. Curated by Jan St Werner and the HKW the event will feature two of my sound installations and two performances.
I am truly thrilled to bring two of Annea Lockwood‘s wonderful pieces to this event. Her gorgeous piece Dusk (2012) will be presented through loudspeakers outside of the HKW at dusk each day (17:55 – 18:05). I will also be presenting & performing in bayou-borne, for Pauline – a graphic score for six instrumentalists/voices based on a map of six bayou’s which converge near Houston Texas, where Pauline Oliveros grew up. Unfortunately Annea cannot be with us for the event but i am thrilled to be working with a wonderful ensemble created especially for this event which includes Oren Ambarchi, Sam Dunscombe, Werner Durand, Emilio Gordoa and Michiko Ogawa.
I will also perform alongside lovely artists David Grubbs and Andrea Belfi as part of a spatialized collaboration organized by David titled Three Simultaneous Soloists, .
So many other wonderful pieces and performances by Alvin Lucier, Diana Deutsch, Stephen O’Malley, Judith Hamann, Oren Ambarchi, Anthea Caddy and more will fill these days and I am really looking forward to it all!
I am looking forward to being back in Japan for a handful of performances at the end of November. It all begins with a first time trio performance with the wonderful Leif Elggren (SW) and Oren Ambarchi (AU) following our trio LP release Certainly. This concert will take place on the opening night of Editions festival (SW) – Tokyo Super Deluxe Edition – on November 22.
This will be followed by two solo performances, the first in Tokyo at Super Deluxe on November 28 (alongside solo’s by Oren Ambarchi and Konrad Sprenger (DE)) and the second at Soto in Kyoto on November 29.
I am always thrilled to be in Japan performing, and this occasion is especially important to me as it will mark my last ever performances at the most wonderful venue, Super Deluxe in Tokyo. This Nishi Azabu (Roppongi) based venue has been nurturing the experimental music community (and much more) since 2002 and will be closing in January 2019 due to the building being vacated to be torn down. SD was the first venue i performed in when i first came to Tokyo in 2011 and i have performed there every year since in various projects and collaborations. I have also witnessed innumerable special and one-off performances by friends and peers here through the years.
The closing of Super Deluxe truly feels like the end of an era, and they are finishing with an insane program of incredible events through until mid-January. I am so grateful to Mike Kubeck and the incredible team at SD for all of the support over the past 8 years. THANK-YOU and all the best for what lies ahead!
