I had the very chance to be playing lately with many amazing female musicians during spring of this year. The Werkstatt der Kulturen Berlin organized a Serie of Concerts called “She’s Got Jazz”, featuring and bringing togheter female musicians of the Berlin’s scene.
This is one of the 5 concerts in which I was involved, featuring Marion Ruault (Double Bass), Rieko Okuda (piano) and Ria Rother (drum).
I’ve spent the last 2 years having a good breack from the music scene. Searching in my old archives I found here a good stuff to share. An unforgettable concert with such open hearted musicians from Madagascar!
Thanks to : Sanda Ranaivosoa (guit), Sitaraka Ranaivosoa (drums) & Jax Ravel (bass)
Madajazzcar Festival 2013
Have a nice listening!
I spent the last weeks into the study of the Book of Changes and I found out some interesting relationships between this system and the musical systhem. The I-ching (book of changes) is an ancient chinese divinatory tool used in the court of the kings of China, based on 64 signs, each of them contains a sort of archetipical situation. The way of picking up a sign is very connected to the phaenomena of synchronicity between you, your mind, here and now.. (see Calr Gustav Jung) so if you have a deep question to ask directly to the Universe, you have some probability to get a deep answer.
I’ll invite you all to hear my musical interpretation of some of the 64 hexagrams of the I-Ching transposed to music.
This event will be part of the Greenhouse go Upperground Open Studio Days on the 29 of december 2015, 1st floor, room 106. Gottlieb-Dunkel Str 43-44, Berlin
