Thank you who all participated in our first performance at the AGORA art festival last night! Wonderful art and energy everywhere!
For tonight!!...."Performing with me in Columbus this week from Leipzig Germany is Simone Weisenfels. Simone is a really cool lady who has been performing in Europe and many other countries for over 25 years. We met about 6 months ago and decided we wanted to make some music. So we are doing a little tour over the next couple of weeks, we'll be playing a string of dates in Columbus.
Simone is a classical and jazz musician/composer who's influences range from Frank Zappa, jazz drummer Jack Dejohnette, 20th century classical, to death metal bands like Necrophagist & Purgatory.
Simone is very active in many scenes in Europe. She performs with Orchestras, out-jazz groups, performance artists, and many DJs.
She's an aggressively creative woman who's hard to funnel. She is also super cool and has a really great attitude, sense of humor and a refreshing free thinking about music.
We have collaborated through sharing written music & swapping tracks over the net, but this will be our first venture into performing live together.
I am very excited to bring her here to the USA and to Columbus.
She is one of the most open minded and intelligent people and musicians I have met in a very long time. What we'll be doing is lots of spontaneous music mixed with some of her own strange and unique compositions.
Attached is a list of dates and locations. Many here in C-bus.
Come check this out, Simone is very excited about coming here and connecting with many different kinds of musicians & artists.
She has a passion and attitude about music that is very special.
...Oh did I mention she is a monster on the piano?...."
Please feel welcome to email me on myspace with any questions!
All the best to each of you!
