Thanks to the support of the Amsterdam Funds for the Arts, I had the great opportunity to dedicate some time to compose music; few of the results where presented in the last few month:

- On 18 & 19 November it was the premiere of De Oceaan during Novencento in Concert - MuziekPak Huis Lustrum Concert at Het Sierrad, Amsterdam.

Raya Baya on trumpet, Bart Lust on Trombone, Walter Lampe on piano and Harm Wijntjes on double bass (and yours truly :)

- Omwentelingen/Revolutions was memorable and inspiring.
Thursday Oct. 5th It was the world premiere of my piece #allyouneed with Nieuw Ensemble and Brechtje at Muziekgebouw aan het Ij.

She wrote the lyrics and made the adaptations for N.E. (and she sung it)
I played on Matteo's piece and my own one.

Thanks to all the wonderful and passionate composer and musicians that shared their perspectives on todays world in the form of music.
Among them Erqing Wang, Genevieve Murphy, Rick van Veldhuizen, Kate Honey, Chiva Bons, Brechtje, Wang Lu, Matteo Nicolin, Ed Spanjaard, Nieuw Ensemble, Joël Bons and many more...

- My composition for string quartet Threnody for a Blue Planet (yet work in process) was presented on Sept 24th at De Ruimte.

Many thanks to Jacob Plooi and Vera van der Bie on violins, George Dumitriu on viola and Florien Hamer on cello.
They made a great performance out of it.

The evening was a sort of Carte Blanche, I was also playing with two of my beloved bands:
The Ambush Party (doing the cambia thing) and Lily's déjà vu in trio with Jasper Stadhouders and Guille Celano.

I'm playing now a days with Veronica Castro Ravelo, presenting the repertoire we recorded in "Madrigal de Ausencias" album produced by Hessel van der Kooij in Terschelling. (video)
Besides the pleasure of playing traditional music from SouthAmerica that is close to my heart, it comes to me the joy of doing it with these great artists:
(I let this review present them to you :)

"Verónica Castro Ravelo brought warmth into the hearts of Jazzkarussell's friends...(Oberhausen/DE)
In a relaxed atmosphere, Verónica ensured an exciting cheerfulness helped by the heady guitar of Hernán Ruíz, the wailing bandoneon of Matías Pedrana and the sparkling piano lines of Dirk Balthaus.
All this music was sovereign founded on the refreshing bass pulses of Elías General and the infectious beats of Marcos Baggiani.
… The perfect ending of a beautiful afternoon...”  WAZ.DE


- Finally I had the time to put together a video of the performance I did with Kenzo Kusuda time ago, I still love it so... here it is!
