Duo with Shelley Hirsch!

I'm extremely proud to announce this duo concert with Shelley Hirsch on Friday 1st July 2011 at NK in Berlin.

'A woman of thousand voices... She offers an enthralling demonstration of the way songs, vocal styles and language might have evolved out of more primal musical impulses.'
New York Times

She has performed hundreds of concerts of improvised music with many musicians i.e. Anthony Coleman, Christian Marclay, Ikue Mori, Toshio Kajiwara, Hans Reichel, Min Xiao Fen, Paul Lovens, DJ Olive, Joey Baron, Marc Ribot, Butch Morris, Elliot Sharp etc.
She recorded for such labels as Tzadik, No Mans Land, Apollo, Innocence Records, FMP etc, with the likes of John Zorn, David Weinstein, Nicolas Collins, Jon Rose, Sven Ake Johannson, Alexander von Schlippenbach and many more.

Second act will be Bogan Ghost (Anthea Caddy & Liz Allbee):

Back from the Swiss mountains where I recorded with Lindha Kallerdahl, Lionel Friedli and Lionel Gafner aka The Gaf for a new project called 'The Deer Detective'. Full album and tour in spring 2012.

Played three CD release shows with OZMO in Zurich, Bern and Biel:
OZMO - ozmo - CD (Unit Records UTR4286)

Vincent Membrez: piano
Joke Lanz: turntables
Christian Weber: double bass
Lionel Friedli: drums

Spent a lovely time with my son Céleste for his 22nd b-day:

And met my good old friend and former SI member Franz:

Last but not least I joined Tetras (Christian Weber, Jason Kahn, Jeroen Visser) and duQtuc (Antoine Läng, Lionel Friedli, Vincent Membrez) for a show in Zurich and Geneva.

Thanks a lot to Ramsay, Bettina, Marion, Sixto, Ehfa, Stibu, Christian, Vincent, Gaf, Lionel, Lindha, Sam, Julien, Pedro, Sara, Franz, Bruno and all the others for your time and great hospitality! Cheers!
