I’m using some of my time at home to learn some software skills for audio and video editing. This is a cover of an Aphex Twin tune, Avril 14th, which I re-arranged for clarinets.

Beautiful location to perform at today, the hidden away Nomadic Gardens near Brick Lane, playing with Alvorada as part of Paracarnival’s Love and Union event.
Our “fifth Sunday of the month” roda de choro residency at The Harrison continues this Sunday June 30th. All welcome to join to play, hang, listen, drink, and experience the joy of a traditional roda de choro.
Looking forward to a set this coming Fri 21st June with Cléa Thomasset. We’ll be performing with the house band, playing a mixture of Cléa’s originals, some choro and other Brazilian repertoire, and contemporary jazz by the likes of Magic Malik. Should be great. Followed by a jam session afterwards.
This Sunday 16th June is a special gig for London Vocal Project. We’ll be taking part in a special concert called The Many Voices of Eve, in a collaboration with The Printmakers. The concert will feature Nikki Iles and Norma Winstone, and will focus particularly on female songwriters, lyricists and poets. Nikki has written some new music especially for the occasion, which we have been working on for a couple of months. It is gorgeous music which I’ve fallen in love with, it’s really exciting to be performing it this weekend.
We’ll also be doing a pop-up a capella set in the foyer before the main concert. This will feature music by female singer-songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks, Tori Amos and Kate Bush, in some new arrangements by Brendan Dowse. The free pop-up set is at 7pm, and the main concert begins at 8pm.
