Aug 3-5 I’ll be in Los Angeles recording the duo Malosma with flutist Christine Tavolacci at Automata.
Then spend the bulk of August 2021 playing principle clarinet for new orchestra premieres at the Ostrava Days Festival in the Czech Republic.
The first week of September I travel to Berlin, Germany to work with Lucio Capece and play a couple shows.
Sept 3@ KM28 in Berlin: I share a night at KM28 with bassist James Ilgenfritz. Clarinet solos + electronics. Bassist James Ilgenfritz and bass clarinetist Katie Porter present solo works by Teodora Stepancic, Devin Maxwell, Lucie Vítková, and Gergely Szabó, and perform with Viola Yip, Nicola Hein, Chris Heenan, Magda Mayas, and Axel Dörner.
Sept 5 @ St. Petersburg Art Space Berlin. Lucio Capece and I will premiere Phase to Phase I and Phase to Phase II, our bass clarinet duos recorded slowly all year over zoom.
And HUGE NEWS:. The Japanese label FTARRI will release our recordings in December 2021. Here is the cover art!
Finally, I was asked to contribute to SOUND AMERICAN Issue 27: The Life Issue. I wrote a huge article taken from letters to my friend Juho Laitinen during the pandemic, about life, kids, loss and music. This will be released in the fall.
