The summer is full of festivals featuring new projects, especially collaborations with theatre maker-harpist Iris van der Ende. Come see the Onder de brug performances during Over Het IJ Festival in Amsterdam July 13-22! (See the Agenda for more details.) All the while, Klanktheater is busy preparing for “Multiply by Sharing IX” in October in as year-long Artists in Residence in Werkplaats K in Kerkrade!
During the month of June it was residency time! On June 1st I arrived in Krems an der Donau for an entire month to devote to music-making. I am very honored to have been named an Artist in Residence in Krems, Austria in collaboration with Cellist Clara Rivière for a project making field recordings, composing, and giving a workshop for children with special needs (with Veronika Großberger), all during the month of June! Furthermore, when I arrived I met new fascinating artists with whom I could explore and make new work and an exposition in Krems. See the picture below!
Thank you to the Klangraum, Nö Festival and Niederösterreich for sponsoring my work here!
EXHIBITION and CELLO PERFORMANCE in Krems
With my new colleagues Adriana Affortunati, Jana Dabac, Clara Rivière and Andrew Neumann, we organized an exhibition and cello performance in a beautiful old garage/former wine cellar in Krems. It is a celebration of our poetic impressions of Krems during the month of June.
During my explorations for sounds I like to send out audiopostcards to share a little bit of what I was hearing throughout my stay.
