I feel very lucky and honored to have been invited to write music for “Da war ich nicht mehr da” a very personal, special, historically important new piece by Leni Plöchl. Even though we have known each other for a very short time, it felt close and good. The premiere is over already, but Werk X announced that they want to do more showings in the upcoming fall and winter. So please stay tuned and look out for more dates at the werk x Petersplatz. here is the link to my subpage of
I am happy to announce the launch of four new compositions that I have been working on the last few month. The will be part of my upcoming fourth album. The working title for now is KMET “boundaries”. The four titles are: 1. Autonomie 2. Zerrlegungsbeauty 3. Ausgemacht 4. freeflaoting in my house As in the past there is no specific style it can be tagged to, but they are all experimental pieces, working with different preparations of my instruments, with words, singing, different rhythms. Its been a real thrill to work on them. I am great full that this work was supported by the MA7 – Kulturabteilung der Stadt Wien, especially in times of lockdowns and restrictions, that make it very difficult to work normally. Many thanks!
2021 is the year of new challenges. Its an honor to be in this jury for the “Deutsche Akademie der darstellenden Künste” and select the radio play of the month every four weeks. A wild and challenging and fun journey to listen to many radisplays each month. So this month its “Dankbarkeiten” after a book by Delphine de Vigan. You can listen to it here and read bit about it on the SWR website
Very happy that our first original radio play is out there now! Take a listen to the full Radio play for another week now! stream of our play
The mighty Deutschlandfunk and Ruth Rousselange did a fabulous in depth portrait of it:
Many thanks to the wonderful team – Ö1, Elisabeth Zimmermann -production, Philip Scheiner -dramaturgy and the Kollektiv Weiter! Alexandra Pâzgu (words) and Roman Blumenschein(actor). It´s been a wonderful journey, many thanks! More to come…
I am very exited to finish a covid 19 project. Its the third video, or more a short film I did now. It was a centered around lower Austria. With a covid 19 funding I realized an Idea about making a musical “swab” of it, filming, doing field recordings( w. Ernst Reitermaiers support!) and producing music around and with the different scenes. My wish was to get answers about the lockdown, anticipations, how things went, to learn and listen and see.
I am exited that there will be a premiere with a live audience ! I will play a solo show at the Sonnenparkfest in St.Pölten on Saturday September 5th – and they also do a film screening, and I could sneak my film in there! many thanks about that flexibility! So I will post a link here on Sunday, after the premiere with the movie to stream for all those who could not make it on Saturday!
meanwhile let me post a few stills from the movie:
I am happy to be part of a Spielräume broadcast in Ö1. Michael Neuhauser curated this with pieces that gained light and depth in the corona crisis. I could finish two new pieces for this.
I am happy to announce to be part of the corona stage line up of derStandard. It´s been a fine platform to give musicians, writers and comedians a stage, since all real stages have been closed down for three weeks buy now. I find my self working in lockdown as a homeschooling teacher with 2 kids, a meal provider and musician off stage. So I was invited to finish a few pieces for Radio Ö1 which aired last Friday. Tomorrow Monday April 6th I will present 6 live recorded videos at derStandard stage. You can see it here
Dear readers, there is many fine new things coming up. On December 14th at 2 p.m. there is the premiere of “six seasons”part two in Radio Ö1 – with the radio play “Die Rückkehr der Yamaboushi oder Shifting Baselines” written by Ann Cotten. I was invited to create music to the same painting Ann choose and created her story for. Philip Scheiner put music and text and actors together for this one. You can stream it here, and it will be online for a few weeks on the Ö1 Podacast. We are also starting to gather exiting ideas for a new radio play, writer Alexandra Pazgu and actor Roman Blumenschein. I am also very happy to be researching and thinking about a new play with Barbara Gassner and Ed Hauswirth after touring extensively with our piece ” Die andere Hälfte des Himmels”.
