Music for “Rescue” by Public Movement

August 18 and 19, Århus, Denmark

Rescue” is a performance piece created by Public Movement, which is based on a study of the physical actions of emergency service people during rescue operations.
It’s a four hour durational piece performed outdoors, and I have created a multi speaker soundtrack for it which I will control and improvise with during the shows.—rescue/9349/

After a few years of playing together as a duo, we finally released a CD together Aural Terrains, a wonderful label run by Thanos Chrisakis.
Most of our sessions were held in Steve Noble’s front room, so this is one of our rare public performances.

Sharing the evening with us will be the one and only Phil Minton in a vocal solo.

The Empire Strikes Back: Kingdom of the Synthetic @ Donau Festival


Three shows on April 28/29/30

After having performed all over Germany, Ariel Efraim Ashbel and friends’ theatre piece returns for three more shows at the great Donau Festival in Krems, Austria.
In my role as musical director I acted as composer, programmer, vocal coach, instrument designer, instrumentalist (bass clarinet and plank guitar), and in at least one case, also some as an ad-hoc director. This refers to a robo-dance scene with a ‘microphone’ robot feedbacking through a ‘speaker’ robot, and so generating an improvised feedback music to (and through) their movements.

H’art songs

16.4.17 8:30pm, Hateiva, Jaffa

A very special project and a kind of thing I don’t usually do.
I transcribed Moondog’s CD H’art songs (originally layered pianos, singing and percussion) and arranged it for two pianos.
Maya Dunietz and myself are going to sing and play these two pianos, and with Ram Gabay on percussion we will perform this beautiful album in its entirety.
