“Radical & Bracing”

A review of  my CD Amp/Al appeared on the website 5against4. It described my first foray into my own pieces and improvisation as “passing through episodes of ferocious confidence & unexpected reticence” and noted Rodrigo Constanzo’s contribution also. There are several other interesting articles on the website too which are well worth the read. To continue the performer/composer theme, I’ll be performing at the Noise Upstairs, Manchester on the 10th of April performing new work.

In 2014 there are two recording projects to look forward to. inward, my first disc with Métier, was originally intended to be single project, but since its release in 2011 I’ve decided to take up some of the threads left from the first encounter and incorporate them into my new disc. The repertoire will include new works by Richard BarrettJohn CroftFabrice FitchEsaias Järnegard and Evan Johnson, among others. Alongside this, the label Another Timbre will be recording works by Jürgen Frey which I am involved in. Finally, I’ll be returning to the Experimentalstudio in Freiburg at the end of the year to premiere Ann Cleare‘s new work for contrabass flute and ensemble at the ZKM Karlsruhe.
