Never have I seen or heard instruments like these. I’m thrilled to announce my 2nd collaboration with Designer/Musician Roxanne Nesbitt. We have spent the past month conducting research and discovering exciting new sound worlds. We will be premiering the Symbiotic Instruments at STRETCH STUDIO this Friday.

On April 9th I performed with one of my favourite musician/dancers, Angela Munoz for the XB SUNDAY MATINEE #21. We were to perform inside a cozy squat in Friedrichshain but it was such a sunny day we took it to the streets 🙂

I flew from Berlin to Ottawa to meet the band for a 3 day reunion/party. It was good to be back in Canada. Fresh fish and …. snow in April ?! The band was nominated once again for Best Instrumental of the year. Highlights were Buffy Saint Marie’s speech telling flight companies to lower the crazy costs of transporting instruments and getting introduced to Andy Shauf – check out the album!

I love playing with this guy. Arturs Krumins is a Latvian born Cellist based in Amsterdam I started playing with two years ago. He invited me to play his cello recital at the conservatory. This improv piece got full marks from the panel of judges. WATCH HERE
