*** North UK Winter Tour ***28.02.2018 // 10.03.2018
As Steve Noble told me, "two gigs are already a tour!" So here we go ! New trio with drummer Charlie Collins and trumpeter Derek Saw !! Needless to say that will be a honor and extreme pleasure to replay with these two legends! uh no! in fact it does not cost anything to say it again! First stop will be at our beloved venue Access Space in Sheffield on March 1st (thanks to Jake Harries) and then, second stop at The Peer Hat in Manchester on March 4th. I would like to sincerely thank Tubers Music Manchester (David Birchall) and Tombed Visions Records (David McLean) for the support and to join their forces to organize this concert. Saxophonist David McLean will join us in an exclusive quartet for a second set and David Birchall will play duo with the drummer Phil Marks; it sounds like a crazy night of free improvised music !
Then I continue this journey in the north alone: I will intervene on March 5th and 6th in Michael Dunn' Creative Music Technology program for a lecture and presentation of my instrument, the "Prepared Chamber", and around DIY practices and instrument-building as well , plus a workshop with students on Recycled magnetic pickups at Music and Performing Arts at University Centre Doncaster !

Then, to conclude; direction Wigan for a few days to record a new duo album with my old friend and genius Adrian Beentjes, 6 years after our "Micro Sounds Biopsy" released on Zeromoon! A real ten days blast forthcoming !
