This week I head to Saskatoon Canada for the Sounds Like Festival where i will be presenting a program that i have curated for the opening evening on October 20. This program is near & dear to my heart and it has been a long time in the making! Part one will feature a solo presentation of Becoming Oceanic, a longform piece developed through extensive research into psychedlic assisted psychotherapy sessions by musician/composer Sam Dunscombe. Part two will be a program of collaborative works centered around the collaboration of historic American artist/composer David Behrman and composer/performer Cleek Schrey. I am thrilled to bring these wonderful artists to the prairies of Canada to share their unique and beautiful work and i’m grateful to the Sounds Like team for this invitation!
I will also perform a solo concert on the second night of the festival, October 21. Full festival details are up here.
Following Saskatoon I will be joined by Oren Ambarchi for a series of Canadian shows (solo performances):
This week i am in a micro-residency in Biel Switzerland to create an intervention performance in the wonderfully immersive 2-floor sound installation SOLO / MUTE / PAN created by Olga Kokcharova and Laurent Güdel. The exhibition at Kunsthaus Pasquart is open from 18.9.-20.11.2022.
I will be working alongside Swiss composer Annette Schmucki to create ways of coexisting, disrupting and entangling with Kokcharova & Güdel’s detailed sound composition which is diffused through an elaborate, complex and beautiful acousmonium spaning multiple rooms over two floors of the gallery. Our performance takes place on Thursday September 29 at 18:30 on the top floor.
I am very excited to travel to Romania for the very first time to perform this Sunday as part of SimultanFestival – an event dedicated to sound, moving image, performance and media art. The festival spans 8-days and I will perform this coming Saturday, September 11 as the festival begins.
I will be performing a new solo work called ‘attune‘ for a special event in Toronto at Interaccess on November 23. The evening, titled Tunings, will coincide with the closing of Cold Pin – a kinetic sound installation by Eli Keszler (NY). My performance will respond to Keszler’s percussive approach and explorations of resonance through my explorations with spring reverb and contact mics. The night will also feature performances by Nick Storring & Matt Rogalsky.
