This video is a collaboration between myself, multi-instrumentalist and composer Oene van Geel, and visual artist Nan Wan, both of whom are based in the Netherlands. Oene and I created this track together through remote recording, and Nan made the animation to go with the music.
I'm excited to have just finished a commission from the Pender Harbour Music Society! It's a 15 minute work for clarinet, string quartet, guitar, and piano entitled "Pender Harbour Paradise". The premier will be on August 17th at the Pender Harbour Chamber Music Festival in BC. Check out this interview I did with the local paper.
I've started a new trio with violinist Jessica Deutsch and singer/percussionist Aline Morales, playing a mix of traditional and modern Brazilian music: choro, forro, samba, and original tunes. Here's a clip from one of our first gigs, performing "Sete Estrelas" by Guinga. Our next show is January 24 at Arts Square Gallery.
Last fall I went to Transylvania with James Campbell to perform with some very talented people including Krisztina Koszorus and the Tiberius Quartet. This summer they're coming to Canada! This show will feature a variety of music arranged by myself and Tibor Molnar.
