I’m ready to fully relax for a week after playing and traveling non stop since January 16. What a feeling!
Over the past year I have not communicated properly with people who follow my work. The reason being that it was the most creative year of my life. I created five new projects -instead of one every two years. I also recorded a previous project last September, which will be released in February 2012. It’s a quartet recording featuring Baptiste Trotignon, Thomas Bramerie and Hans van Oosterhout.
It’s called “The Art of Dreaming”, because of the state of heightened awareness that we share when we play together, which I could describe as dreaming while being awake.
That dreamlike awareness fuels the energy of the record: it really feels like a live concert recording, in front of our best audience. I take it as a gift… And I’m excited to share that gift with you!
