I was invited to amazing festival in Cyprus in Jan 2016. Lefkosia Loop Festival happens in Cyprus in the first week of January (5,6th this year).

I was amazed with warm welcome from the audience who seemed to enjoy the show. Following the festival I recorded new tunes with new and old friends from Cyprus.

I just came back from amazing trip to New Zealand and Singapore, where I went for study leave and toured with Space F!ght in Oct/November 2015 with dates in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. During the trip I facilitated workshops at New Zealand School of Music in Wellington, CPIT in Christchurch and University of Waikato in Hamilton. I did presentations for students and academic staff on data sonification, showcased workflow and approaches to live improv. I performed with Space F!ght in unique lineup with Anna Edgington(voice) and Tane Upjohn-Beatson(guitar).
New Zealand Tour Dates:
29th Oct Whammy Bar, Auckland
7th Nov Pyramid Club, Wellington
