Karina Suárez Bosche – Cuerpo Minimo

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 – a.k.a. my beloved ‘sister-in-Berlin’. The piece ‘Cuerpo Minimo’ will be quite exciting to work on, the concept is challenging and I am preparing to make sound for it in a way I never did before. I will explain more about that later.. Although the premier will be only in October (and in Mexico), a first work in progress version will be presented in the end of June in Berlin. I will also play live sound for another piece of Karina. I’ll post more details about these later.

  • 28th, 29th June, 8pm, ACUD-Theater (Berlin) – Desierto de Sillas

In Between II – ‘Without Her’

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.

Attila Andrási – Once upon a time

A little look-ahead for May: the solo piece Once Upon a Time by Attila Andrási got selected to Festival 10 Sentidos in Valencia, and he asked me to make a new soundtrack for it and accompany him to the festival. I am already looking forward to return to the the sunny south with some new music..

CHB Incubator

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

CHANGE, FORMATION, TRANSFORMATION

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.

Mikel Aristegui – In Between

I am working on the soundtrack of In Between, the next dance performance of Mikel Aristegui, performed by himself, Nuria Sotelo, and Rosabel Huguet, on 15th November, at Auditorium of Ourense, Spain. The piece presents the question of the binary definition of gender, to reflect on the importance of today’s need to treat gender “not defined” in order to begin a dialogue on equality. I love to work with Mikel, his artistic mission is very coherent just as himself as a person is. I can’t wait the premier of this piece.
