Lots of shows coming up: have a look at the Gigs section. Particularly at the Zoey Pepper concert on March 7th, featuring a new piece for voice, bassoon and computer. I'll post a recording of the results after the concert. In June, I'll be at Canberra's Street Theatre in a satirical cabaret with Shortis & Simpson and Queenie van de Zandt, exploring our shiny new regime... To Europe in July for Finland's Kaustinen Festival; and WOMAD in Wiltshire with Andrew Cronshaw, Tigran Aleksanyan and Svetlana Spajic. A new CD should be forthcoming at the year's end. Meanwhile, Svetlana and Andy, plus soundman Jamie Orchard-Lisle, have been working with some remarkable singers from Žegar in Dalmatia: the group and the resulting CD are known as Žegar Živi: "Žegar Lives". It's Sydney's turn for a Clarity Clarinet Quartet CD launch: Second Door on the Left will lurch down the slipway on February 25, 6pm at The Australian Music Centre, which lives at The Arts Exchange, 10 Hickson Road, The Rocks, Sydney. This worthwhile disc includes my tune Starling.
