One more adventure with my good friend Tijn Wybenga. As a culmination of what it had to be a tour in the netherlands, we were planning to record a new album with the whole orchestra. The tour wasn’t possible, but fortunately we were able to play 2 concerts for the Grachtenfestival and record for a whole week at the Bimhuis. With, Pablo Rodriguez, Yanna Pelser, George Dumitriu, Pau Sola, Alessandro Fongaro, Teis Semey, Felix Back, Tom Pritchard, Federico Calcagno, Kika Sprangers, Alistair Payne, Odei Al-Magut, Jamie Peet and Angelo Boltini. Recording with Philipp ten Brink
I had the pleasure to play as a guest of Aviv Noam Quartet. First we recorded in Wisseloord studios, and then we could play in the Grachtenfestival. Now the album is out! Don’t doubt in listen to it, and buy a copy to support the artists. Beautiful new music.
With Aviv Noam Quartet – Aviv Noam, Guy Tristan Salomon, Louis J. Bourhis, and Federico Calcagno. And guests Omer Govreen and myself.
One actor, one dancer and 6 musicians performing inside a bubble in the middle of the woods. That was quite an adventure that took us and the bubble to Friesland for the Oranjewoud festival, to Terschelling for Oerol, and finally back to Amsterdam for the Grachtenfestival.
