The recent Luminous show in Hobart went beautifully thanks to our hosts Constantine and Marianne of Ihos Opera, who gave us a great welcome. The Peacock Theatre in Salamanca is one of my favourite venues so far: the backdrop is a rockface, and it feels like playing in a well-appointed cave. On the right is Helen Rivero halfway up the wall.
Helen's new CD Yes Capitan is out now: to find out more, visit Helen's pages.
Blue Bear Studio has been busy with a variety of projects: Dianne Fogwell and I produced the audio guide for the Edition + Artist Book Studio exhibition at the State Library of Victoria, which features Kern: music written for the opening of Dianne's Resonance show.
The Bear also recorded Judith Crispin's music for the short film Canvas, by Bobby Farquhar. It's been doing well at the festivals.
I'll be in Europe in July and August, working on new electronic music in Paris and a project with Serbian singer Svetlana Spajic, Andrew Cronshaw, duduk player Tigran Aleksanyan and soundman Jamie Orchard-Lisle. In Walthamstow... There will be a CD centred on Svetlana's remarkable singing and research into traditional music from Dalmatia, and we'll be touring in Europe next year. back to top
