I am trilled to share news about upcoming events with Joanne Brackeen, Gadi Sassoon, Oren Fader and concerts at the Mexican Center for Music and Sound Art, Spectrum, Isabelle Stewart Gardner Museum and publications in Musicworks and Ideas Sonicas.

Musicworks just published my article on Walter Smetak, a Swiss-Brazilian cellist, transdisciplinary artist, and mystic. Working in Salvador da Bahia, Smetak performed and recorded with Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso, and he mentored Tom Zé. After denouncing his role as an artist and becoming a devout practitioner of Theosophy, Smetak invented 150 plásticas sonoras (sound sculptures). He designed a 22 meter high recording studio in the shape of an egg that anticipated 21st century practice decades before the rest of us.

Centro Mexicano para la Música y las Artes Sonoras  recently published an issue of Ideas Sonicas with an article recounting how I met and worked with Juan Blanco.

I hope to see you at an upcoming event!
