Music Olomouc 2018

IMG_0136a

I hereby invite to my solo recital at MusicOlomouc, contemporary music festival in Olomouc, Czech Republic.
There, I will perform an over 70 minutes program which will consist of quite physical works, mostly performed in Czech Republic for the first time. And with special focus on Piotr Peszat’s Jenny’ Soul. Or Dirk’s?, which was created back in 2016 in our common, work-in-progress, composition process.
One of the premieres will be a World Premiere of a crazy noise work by Cory Bracken (NY, USA), composed for my, and comissioned by the festival. A work for an insane set of stuff consisting of a door spring mounted on a snare drum, various sliders and thimbers, combs, bows, varied vibrators, milk frotters, chains and contact mics.
Moreover, it will be my own first festival performance of the solo percussion piece by Michel van der Aa which, next to Cory’s work, is a new addition to my repertoir.
I hope that those of you who will attend the festival, will enjoy my personal interpretations of Aperghis, Billone and Sarhan as well.
Hope to meet you there!

Performances at 3rd Tehran Contemporary Music Festival

tcmf

It is my great pleasure to share the news about my participation in the 3rd Tehran Contemporary Music Festival, which will take place in the capital of Iran, in the period of April 21-27.
[FESTIVAL WEBSITE]

Moreover, it is my honour to give the Iranian first performances of all the performed works.

My participation in the festival includes two concerts.
The first is more a standard percussion concert including classics of the repertoir for multipercussion and vibraphone, and a work by Iranian composer, which looks like this:

 

the sky 2. Mov

The second concert is an instrumental performance based on my neverending search for the personal performativity in music including, in short, own arrangements of Aperghis’ texts Zig-Bang and works with limited or no instruments.
