It has been a while that I posted some news.... This is what happened recently:
- End of 2016 and beginning of 2017 I was busy with 3 scores for German TV-movies.
- In March I started working on music and songs for a children's show at the world famous Berlin revue theatre Friedrichstadt Palast. Premiere will be in November 2017.
- In April I wrote new arrangements for Ensemble Musikfabrik (from Cologne) of two Frank Zappa songs: "Florentine Pogen" and "Inca Roads" (both from one of my favourite FZ albums "One Size Fits All"). They received their world premiere in a very successful concert in Amsterdam at the Muziekgebouw... (see also here..)
I am currently in Umeå. Rehearsing this very unique project called 'StadionMusic' - the brain behind all this is Mr.David Moss. Stage, lightning, constumes etc. by Fred Pommerehn. Music by David Moss and Ali N. Askin. Solists are Julia Henning (Soprano), John King (Electric Guitar), Morgan Ågren (Drums and Percussion) and David Moss (Voice). Also involved are: The Norrlands Orchestra, the Norrlands Opera Choir, ca. 80 kids - And: wrestlers, fenchers, gymnasts and pole vault...
The dress rehearsal went quite well yesterday - we are looking forward to the premiere tonight! So if you are in Umeå today and tomorrow you shouldn't miss it!!!!
