a little late ... but here it is!
as we are approaching the end of the month already, its unfortunately soon time to say good bye to latin america. i had a great time here since december and all i can tell you is that ill be back soon.
besides playing some really great shows with Nicole Bindler (here is a little text she wrote) George Cremaschi and Leonel Kaplan (here a little video) and performing in duo with argentine dancer/musician/visual artist Josefina Zuain, i worked in the last weeks on a theaterplay, set up by argentine choreographer Laura Valencia called "Mar De Fondo", which will be premiered in la plata end of may.
a short trip to uruguay, a charhizma night, a dj set in one my favourite bars, the 878 and some more concerts with Leonel Kaplan, Reinaldo Young, Toto Alvarez, Alan Courtis, Pablo Reche, Jaime Genovart & Edén Carrasco and i will be heading back to europe.
there i´ll have the great honor to fall right into a great festival where i will perform with some of my best friends, i havent seen in a long time: Bernhard Fleischmann, Martin Brandlmayr, Burkhard Stangl, Kai Fagaschinski, Michael Thieke & Margareth Kammerer. all this happens in the Fundacao Serralves on 5th and 7th of june and includes a lot more international and local artists.
next day i´ll be heading to canada, where i was invited to co-curate a festival of austrian and canadian music and movie together with Michaela Grill and Steve Bates. two cities - two festivals: whats up vienna/montreal (08. & 09.06) and whats up vienna/winnipeg (11. & 12.06).
after that a visit to berlin to play as part of the "9 lives" ensemble with Miya Masoaka, Asi Foecker, Clare Cooper, Monika Brooks, Clayton Thomas, Kai Fagaschinski, Okyung Lee, Burkhard Beins & Sven-Ake Johansson (18.06.)
back in vienna i will finish the editing of the "El Infierno Musical" recordings.
and then ... looking forward to the Festival "Konfrontationen Nickelsdorf 2010" where i will perform in Michael Thiekes "Guy Maddin Project" with Martin Siewert and Martin Brandlmayr as well in a Trio with Brandlmayr and Ken Vandermark. (16. & 17.07.).
have a good time where ever you are.
