I’m finally emerging from my cave on Buffalo Mountain and breaking my radio silence. I’ve had an incredibly inspirational time up here at the Banff Centre for the Arts this month – had my orchestral clarinet debut during a performance of Richard Reed Parry’s gorgeous piece “Music for Heart and Breath”, got very lucky with my roommate who happens to be a fantastic baker, as well as the conductor of the Tel Aviv Opera and took a breathtaking tiny plane ride through the Rocky mountains which was incredible for the first half, even if I did spend the second half trying very hard not to throw up from the motion sickness.
Western Canadian Shows
The Western Canadian dates are coming this week, including the first Calgary show since my 2013 Sled Island show was cancelled in the floods. Vancouver folks – please take note that the 21st show has moved to Merge, and that there’s a whole extra show happening on Sunday 23rd, too! I’ve had my head immersed inside a boiling creative cauldron for the last month, so expect lots of hot new material!

Last month I had the pleasure of working on a remix for the German electronic artist Allie – I worked on the track Mamase, and in his own words “you made it darker than the original, i didn’t think that’s possible!” have a listen:
on Bandcamp: https://verydeeprec.bandcamp.com/album/allie-remixed
or Spotify: http://spoti.fi/2esL5yJ
If you don’t already know Allie, you should check his stuff out online – “Body Poetry” has been one of my all-time faves since I heard it live in Braunschweig in 2011
New Video on its way VERY SOON
Over the closing of the summer in Montreal I worked with Nick Schofield and Alexia Avina on a new video for the Go On track “Unfazed” – there’ll be a premiere online, soon – keep your noses pinned here for more of the newest news.
