IB Expo in Sweden, Stickmen on the East Coast, TU gigs in USA

Just been home for two weeks (recording for three different  Italian artists!). and leave tomorrow for Stick Men on the east coast , and on the few stick days off we will be in Woodstock recording . Stick men already have about half the record done but are still writing -  over at my myspace you can hear an early rendention of a improvisation that we have already developed to record  mixed with our take on a Crimson classic.


Then after a few days at home to prepare its off to Europe for our first KTU gigs since the release of our new record Quiver.

Check out this review.


Then after another few days home to prepare off to Seattle for the first American  Tu gigs since opening for Tool in 07.

IB expo -Kulturhuet w/Stick Men


jeeze its December already?

been very busy:

starting work with a wonderful guitarist Phil Brown , more E sessions for Gina Fant-Saez, did another record for Abra Moore a few weeks ago, did a gig with the Trey Gunn / Joe Mendelson Quodia project (no rehearsal but it took me a week to write cues and build a drum kit to play em. . .wish i had a foto), in mid November we had a Percussive Arts Society week here in Austin and saw old pals and got a major drum injection .. . yesterday I was a judge for the Paul Green school of rock battle of the Kid band and tomorrow I am involved in an E session panel discussion,

i started work on the the Metamorphous trio and Tuner sessions we did in Sweden. . . .but still need to get the Tunisia stuff mixed and hope to do that later this week or next . Had a couple good days working in the garden (but then the Deer came and ate most of my labors). made Thanksgiving day chow for a house full of friendly human guests.

Had Trey Gunn here in my studio for a couple days of song writing for KTU.. . looking like KTU will do a few gigs in North America this coming March, but as a trio (because Samuli has other gigs booked with MUM) so i have been preparing to cover his parts, KTU just booked a few Finlandish gigs in January to test the KTU trio water.


lots and lots to do. . . so it seems i'm always walking around a bit sleepy. . . . but in reality I must confess most my time has actualy been spent watching this damm video clip over and over (ahhh the days when men were men, in suits, and drums were drums)


IB Expo

Oct 20

Halmstad , Sweden.

Having a great time working with the largest ensemble i can recall. . .there are 12 of us. . .sometimes all on stage together!!

We are Thraking and Vrooming and Ba Booming and Absinthing and much much more!

The drumming is led by Kjell Severinsson on trap kit and Klas Assarsson on orchestral percussion ala Jamie Muir.

In the past few days we have prepared lots of material but of course the random improvisation is what I am most looking forward too. As we learned each other material this week i found the Italians , The Metamorfosi Trio, only improvise. . .this is not exactly accurate since they are amazing sight readers and are playing some ridiculous charts put in front of them. Check here for more info and following the links to the blogs of Thomas for fotos.
