I very excited about the premier of Georgina Derbez´ new chamber opera “La Creciente” which will be premiered at the Festival Internacional Cervantino on October 9. The opera is based on the movie “El premio” by Argentinian movie director Paula Markovitch who also wrote the libretto. It is a very touching story that is set at the time of the Argentinian military junta. The instrumentation will be colourful and transparent: clarinet, vibraphone/percussion, accordion and piano.
My bags are packed for my second tour to the US this year and I am very excited to be a part of Baltimore´s legendary HIGH ZERO Festival of Experimental Improvised Music with a great line-up of amazing musicians. Before I get there I will quickly dash through Washington D.C. for Sonic Circuits Festival. I m really excited to get back to this part of the world where so much crazy music making is happening!
My new website is online! It provides brand new information about me, current projects, music and upcoming concerts and collaborations. I hope you ll enjoy browsing the pages and explore infos, sounds and ideas.
It is great to have this virtual platform to present my work. However, luckily it does not replace live concert experiences and I do hope to share my music with you in person, some time some place…
Many thanks to David Zöllner, my super-creative brother, for solving all my computer-related problems during the programming of these pages!
I finally joined the soundcloud community. You can now find selected live recordings from recent concerts as well as some releases from my archive.
Some more to come in the fall, stay tuned!
I am planning some exciting duo activities in 2016 with clarinettist Heather Roche. Photografer Inga Geiser already helped to set us into the right light. The shots turned out great! And after our first rehearsal on Pierre-Alexandre Tremblay´s new piece all we can say is that the music will be amazing. Be prepared! Duo launch in February 2016!
