Klangmanifeste Vienna 2018 has featured the piece/installation “Whispers”, an ad-hoc recording studio, where a melody is imitated by the visitors of the exhibition. 24 singers and non-singers took part. All the recordings of the melodies were then played later as part of the official concert, along with a live performance of “Ping Pol“, a solo steelstring guitar piece. It all happened on the 17 January 2018 in Echoraum, starting at 18:00, with the main performance at 22:00.

On December 13 my new piece Slope Motion had its premiere in Graz, Austria. Performer/composer/improviser Jonathan Heilbron played the piece for solo double bass, in a concert organised by Openmusic.
The program also included pieces by Georges Aperghis, Anahita Abbasi, Sehyung Kim, and Javier Quislant, played by Dimitrios Polisoidis, Gerald Preinfalk, Krassimir Sterev and Jonathan Heilbron

My piece “Ein Lied geht um die Welt / A Song Travels the World” has been running for a bit more than a month and is finally finished. This was the invitation video:
21 people have imitated a little melody. They recorded themselves singing it and then passed it on to the next musician.
Here is the final result, with all participants in the track description:
I am very happy to announce that I have been selected for a portrait concert in Vienna by Jeunesse and ORF. It will take place in Spring 2018 in Radiokulturhaus Vienna and is going to be recorded and broadcasted by ORF. Needless to say, I am super excited about this!
My pieces will be performed by the amazing Platypus Ensemble and I will be playing myself.
