Four day tour!

I let go of all plans to go on tour this year and then, suddenly, just before the year is over, a possibility pops up! Four consecutive days throughout the Netherlands, as an ad hoc trio with the amazing Nora Mulder on piano and Mees Siderius on drums. And great to share these nights with Bhajan Bhoy (Ajay Sagar’s new solo project) + Kohhei Matsuda (yes, of Bo Ningen), and finger picking Americana guitar wizard Joost Dijkema. We play in Den Haag, Utrecht, Amsterdam (two sets each!) and Eindhoven. All conform corona regulations so check those links for all info. Hope to see you, so excited!

tzZiiiY @ Vrijpaleis Amsterdam

After playing in the Rotterdam garden in the afternoon, I’m off to Amsterdam for the evening this Sunday, where Maria Mavridou and I play a tzZiiiY set at the Vrijpaleis in the city center. Also playing is VoltageSpa, with Branka Zgonjanin & Gert-Jan Prins. Very much looking forward to play with Maria again, in this legendary palace. All info on Facebook.

Groot Rotterdams Atelier Weekend with Josué Amador

This sunday afternoon Josué Amador and I play two improvised sets in the garden of Ateliergebouw Oranjeboom, as part of the Groot Rotterdams Atelier Weekend 2020. Free improvisation on two electric guitars in the open air, very much looking forward. Also playing are Gonçalo Almeida (solo double bass), and the trio of Lucija Gregov, Tisa Neža Herlec and Philipp Ernsting. All in a garden installation put up by Mika Radescu as part of her As Soon As We Are Motionless, We Become Elsewhere program that continues until december. Free entry, come hang!

Acoustic performance with Christian Smith

This Saturday at Helicopter we host our annual Unplugged Festival, the fourth edition by now! I’m giving a performance with percussionist Christian Smith, both of us play acoustic on some objects we found or had lying around. A nice meditative rendering of sound on a wonderful and inspiring evening. Most of the program is outside; no reservations necessary, we will stick to corona regulations. Drop by!

tzZiiiY in Capetown

This thursday, June 11, Maria and I perform a tzZiiiY set in Capetown — virtually of course, no planes — on the YouTube channel of MusicDance 021 CapeTown. Three duo performances; other sets by Leilah Kirsten & Friederike Wendorf, and John Cartwright & Vintani Nafassi. Check it out!

Contaminated Festival

This Thursday is the presentation of a Help Me To Crash set during the “Contaminated” virtual exhibition and performance art event, organized by the Institute for Aesthetic Advocacy in Minneapolis. A total of sixty acts presented in a digital exhibition space with virtual venues — quite a setup and we’re happy to be a part of it. All free and online so do drop by even if you’re not anywhere near Minneapolis!
