A new production is coming up with Mexican/German dancer, choreographer Karina Suárez Bosche, also in collaboration with visual artist/costume- and set-designer Cristina Lelli. ‘Cuerpo Minimo’ will be an exciting work, the concept is challenging and I am preparing to make sound for it in a way I never did before. Using live sampling of stethoscope sounds, electronics, and radio transmitter system with headphones. Although the premier will be only in October in Mexico, a first tryout version will be presented in the end of June in Berlin.
- 23rd June, 8pm, Urbanraum (Berlin) – Cuerpo Minimo (work in progress)
The solo piece Once Upon a Time by Attila Andrási got selected to Festival 10 Sentidos in Valencia, I will accompany him and play the new music live. This one has only electronics without guitar.

Mikel Aristegui’s ‘In Between’ will be on stage again in Ourense, as an alternate, duo-version with Nuria Sotelo. The date is 3rd May, 8pm. ‘Without her’ refers to the missing Rosabel Huguet from the original version of the piece, who is busy somewhere in the south of France these days, I believe. I will also not be there, only my soundtrack – adjusted for this occasion -, they will be just fine without my physical presence. I’m a bit said though for missing the show, Mikel, Nuria, Rosabel, and the lovely tech-team of Auditorio de Ourense.
The coming weeks I will give personalised workshops again as part of CHB’s “Incubator” program. This is a co-operation between CHB and the Snétberger Music Talent Center in Hungary, which is an institute supporting talented Roma youngsters, providing a unique type of mentoring in their development. This time three students of the institute, Diana Dányi, Sándor Gulyás, and Orsolya Janszó were invited by CHB to spend a month in Berlin and get an insight to the art and music scene of the city, through mentoring and workshops provided by musicians living and working there. The program will close with the following public events:
- 14th March, 7pm @ CHB:
Concert with the scholars joined by the founder of the Talent Center, Ferenc Snétberger
- 19th March, 3pm @ CHB:
Public presentation of this year’s workshops – I lead the one about South Indian Rhythms
A short promo I’ve just made music for. I used only electronics for this one. This workshop will be held by Attila Andrási in three cities in the coming month.
- 25 & 26 February – Centre 151 Van Huynh Company, London
- 1-3 March – DOCK 11, Berlin
- 10 March – ZéróPlusz Dance Studio, Budapest
The premier of In Between is coming up on 15th November – 19:00, Auditorio de Ourense, Ourense, Spain.
