After a very busy summer season, that brought me from Germany (Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart, Acker Stadt Palast, Berlin) to Brazil (Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte) with Oh Mensch guitar duo, followed by an intense tour with soundinitiative with concerts in Singapore, New Zealand and Australia and finally Oslo's Ultima Festival with Zwerm electric guitar quartet, I'm now getting ready for an exciting fall season!
Zwerm will create two new projects this fall, starting with FEU, a dance performance by choreographer Etienne Guilloteau and his "Action Scenique", for which Zwerm will make the music. The premiere will be on october 20th at STUK in Leuven. A second performance will take place at Kaaitheater in Brussels on november 28th. More performances are planned in the spring.
Zwerm is also VERY excited to finally collaborate with legendary guitarist Fred Frith this fall! We'll share a concert with Fred, creating our own compositions and improvising together. Check out this little audio-teaser:
Three performances are planned in deSingel in Antwerp, Handelsbeurs in Ghent and November Music, Den Bosch. Get your tickets now!
I'm currently writing this from Donaueschingen where the Nadar-ensemble is busy preparing a program with new pieces by Stefan Prins and Michael Beil for the Donaueschinger Musiktage. Always a great adventure! This performance will be repeated in deBijloke in Ghent on december 11.
Also with Nadar will be a performance of Simon Steen Andersen's masterpiece "Black Box Music". An incredible work, not to be missed! Performances will take place in Concertgebouw, Brugge on november 18 and in Sint-Niklaas on november 19.
I'll perform with Soundinitiative again as well this fall, at the Blundenz Tage for Neue Musik in Austria on november 21.
Lastly I'm very much looking forward to join the Ictus-Ensemble again for a concert together with Wolfgang Mitterer and guitarist Marc Ducret at the Lille opera on november 10!
