Very happy to announce a new quartet performance coming up at the fantastic seeds::brooklyn, as part of the Swiss & Friends festival this mid June!
With all that’s been going on in the world, I find it hard as an artist to not want to shutdown and avoid participating in the ambient noise. It’s definitely part of the reason why it took me so long so to get back into music after the pandemic (it’s February 2023, I’m being optimistic in my use of the word after).
Going out to see shows and get back in touch with the scene gave me a sense of how this struggle affected an entire community but it also really helped me remember why I’m here in New York in the first place. It inspired me to keep being a part of it and try to contribute in my own way, in a positive and hopefully inspiring way as well.
Anyway – I have a new band. And it’s a killer one you guys. I’m super excited about this music, like I haven’t been in many years. We have a show at Ibeam on March 5 at 7:30pm and it would mean a lot to me if you could join us for this special occasion. We’re going to explore older standards in a wild and intimate way and joyfully contribute to the ambient noise.
The situation making it impossible for musicians to physically play together, I recently tried using online solutions to play music in real time with other musicians. One of the software that seemed to be pretty popular – although on the technical side of things is called Jacktrip. It’s actually a pretty neat piece of software that let us record q100 using hi fidelity sound quality. This happens to be our first album with entr[ ]py, an ensemble of electronic music, free improvisation and live processed signal, and it was entirely recorded over internet.
