On 12 January the Havlik Dance Performance Group improvised movement with charcoal on paper. Artist Donna McKee led a workshop on gestural drawing that culminated in a performance for the dancers, with Gary Rouzer and me providing music. Brian Harris’s video Gesture on Paper/Gesture in Space captures the essence of the evening.

For his recent set at Noiseberg in Berlin, Jeff Surak included samples of Gary Rouzer and me playing Gyorgy Kurtag’s Ligatura, recorded inside the vault at Pyramid Atlantic. Which certainly beats lugging a double bass onto a plane.
