May 2014:
BEFOREHAND – Live at Hundred Years Gallery (ccs 28)

Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga: zither
Mark Wastell: electronics, bowls, shruti box

BEFOREHAND formed exclusively for the an appearance at the launch concert for Angharad Davies’ ‘Six Studies’ release on Confront. That debut concert performance was recorded and, following a long standing ritual at Confront, was subsequently released for public consumption and critique.

No rehearsal beforehand(!), straight into the music. Dimitra played with one functioning arm, the other strapped up due to a broken elbow. Mark played his electronics set-up, last used at a show with Keith Rowe in Dublin in 2006. Eight years in a case never touched.

Potential to fail? Possibly. Did it?

HAPPY NEW EARS
January 01, 2014

Lovely start of New Year ::
my project-composition ‘Mobile #2 OR odds ratio’ has just been completed – all parts together and in place and it is such a joy to my ears!
With Nate Wooley, Cremaster (Alfredo Costa Monteiro & Ferran Fages), Xavier Charles, Enrico Malatesta and Christian Weber!

Simon Reynell, of another timbre, asked me five months ago to coordinate a project, which I took on as a great opportunity to work with the above musicians, living around the world, but being somehow linked in my mind.
A challenge worth the effort, I say now!

‘Mobile #2 OR odds ratio’ is a modular composition, inspired by Alexander Calder mobiles. Flow and stillness, moving parts, instructions, balance and probabilities on a kinetic structure.

I hope you’ll want to have a listen now…but you’ll just have to wait for a bit more..this is the heads up on an exciting 2014!

Thank you, Nate, Alfredo, Ferran, Xavier, Enrico and Christian!

Happy New Ears, everybody!
