I'm gearing up for a series of shows this month into next, all abroad. First, there's a talk & a solo performance in Riga, Latvia at the Skanu Mesz festival on the 11th followed closely by a solo concert at Nico Vascellari's Codalunga space/studio in Vittorio Veneto on the 12th. Mark Fell & I will be wood-shedding our duo project for a few days in & around Sheffield before debuting it at the Lausanne Underground Film & Music Festival on the 15th. Wish us luck!
I'll be back in the states for a week T'ing C of Mimaroglu B from the 16th to the 23rd, but then Mark & I will both be in Berlin at the Volksbühne taking part in a great CTM-sponsored bill with Suzanne Ciani's new group Neotantrik w/ Andy Votel & the Demdike Stare guys on the 24th. I have a few days off in Berlin to record-shop & relax before the UK debut of the duo w/ Mark at Joshua Brooks in Manchester on the 30th. We're at Cafe OTO on Halloween, after which I'll be heading to Antwerp for a secret Ultra Eczema-related show there, followed by a solo concert at Ancienne Belgique in Brussels, wherein I'll be using the IPEM's Synthi 100 to play a piece. Then its back in Cambridge on the 3rd for a bit of a break.
December is already shaping up, with solo & duo concerts with Mark in in Brazil; stay tuned!
Update: I've just arrived home; very successful, inspiring run of shows, much fun had all around. The four duos with Mark Fell showed some real promise for such a fledgeling collaboration & the handful of solo concerts were among the best I've played in years both musically & direction-wise. I'm in a good place right now. Above you'll find a selection of photos taken during October & early November in Riga, Vittorio de Veneto, Cleethorpes, Rotherham, Lausanne, Berlin, Manchester, London, Antwerp, Brussels, and points in between - mouseover for a bit of commentary on each & to "freeze" the slideshow.
