World premiere of Horizon & Siren for alto saxophone & viola is coming soon! 14 July in Festival Cantiere Internazionale d'Arte di Montepulciano, Italy with wonderful Michele Selva & Maurizio Barbetti.
Finally two videos from my Guitar Monologues for Electric guitar, live electronics & 6 digital automates.For some time I had the feeling that while exploring and studying traditions, classical and contemporary music, sound, noise and multimedia, I am avoiding the widest modern use of electronic music - BEAT and DRONE, found in Rave, Techno, Jungle and similar genres. In my "Guitar monologues" I had created 6 digital automas (programed in Max/Msp) which use these elements.
Coming soon, in Milan's foremost art foundry FONDERIA BATTAGLIA, hosting my dear friend and musical collaborator Giovanni Cospito.
honored to be a guest in the closing week of on of Italy's major Avant-grade pearls for 20 years - MOONSHINE, A small psychedelic utopia existing out of any institute or trend. Together with Pat Moonchy and Roberto Del Pianowe we will play the Moonshine sonata. Noise, high volume and great beer !

Lukas Hemleb (http://www.hemleb.org/) is one of my favorite theater directors. His work expands from directing baroque, classical and contemporary operas and plays in Europe (Royal Opera House London, Teatro Real Madrid, l’Odéon Paris) till creation of unique poetic works with local artists in Africa and South-East Asia. In the recent month Lukas and me had became close, and finally we are starting to work on a series of projects planned for the next years in Europe and Asia. In a two days marathon in Milan (just before the beginning of rehearsals for his Gluck in Genève) we also managed to visit the wonderful exhibition of Ugo La Pietra in the Triennale and to do some dramatic photo posing.
