Together with Space F!ght I performed at MIRA Festival 2014 at Santa Monica Arts Centre, Barcelona. MIRA festival is one of the biggest festivals of Live Visual Arts in Spain. Festival featured, lectures, performances and interactive installation art. We had Chris Sharkey on guitar, performing among the usual Space F!ght crew including Tom Adams (electronics), James Mainwaring (sax), Jakub Hader aka Precyzja (visuals and pyramid) and myself on Machinedrum and Octatrack.
Here is really nice teaser made from diverse activities happening during the festival. Try spotting our 3D pyramids.
I performed two sets at Electric Spring festival in Huddersfield this year. In 5 days festival brought lots of sonic exploration ranging from Delia Derbyshire, through Laurent Segretier, Kasper T Toeplitz, to Robert Henke aka Monolake among others.
My two sets included brand new Digital Electricity (2015) and SF a/v solo (2014). Both were linking generative music with detailed sound design and improvisation.

Here is video from our recent Sci-Fi Tour 2013.
Space Fight and Sound and Music are co-producing the Sci-Fi UK tour in November. New Space F!ghts set is inspired by sci-fi novels from P.K. Dick and S. Lem. Texts are voice samples of Anna Edgington. These are influencing the improvisation and providing structure for the new pieces. To emphasize 3D effect of the visualisations Space F!ght is using a custom made modular scenography for visualisations/3D mapping. Scenography modules are acting as projection screens made of especially designed models.
During the forthcoming tour each show will also contain a piece made in collaboration with Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS). In this piece satellite ozone data controls the improvisation and 3D visualisations. Space F!ght is using ground level ozone data, which is the best representation of the ozone that harms human health. Since Ozone’s impact is all about location, …
Together with my Kirki Project collaborator Ricardo Alvarez I got involved in University of York Jazz Orchestra gig at National Centre for Early Music in York. Concert themed with Chilean music consisted of 2x sets. The first one composed by Chileans’s Ensemble Quintessence and the second with Ricardo’s own compositions.
Conducted by Jonathan Eato concert resonated with Kirki Project as music in the second set was also inspired by Tirana Festival. It was great opportunity to experiment with electronic material and the orchestra. I was using both field recordings and digital synthesis made on OP1, Machinedrum and Octatrack bringing ambience and textural material to the intervals and sparse parts with solos.
I processed both video and audio material recorded by Ricardo with digital effects adding electronic drum patterns to the pieces. For the visualisations, I used simple Jitter patch to load the videos, photos and faded between them. …
