Fathertongue live performance broadcast on Palanga Street Radio

Fathertongue is a new musical work, composed during my residency in Verpejos, Kabeliai. It weaves the story of a master forger with my own experiences in Lithuanian boglands and my fascination with Iceland’s legendary fabricator, Solon Islandus. Before and after the premiere are songs from the back catalog.

Special thanks to Katrina Niebergal, Verpejos, Icelandic Art Center and the Palanga Street Radio team for having me.

Sound design for Sunkiss, a project by Mylan Hoezen

Sunkiss is four-hour piece revolving around the idea of 'slowness' in response to the acceleration of a once again rapidly forward moving world.

The Cosmic Ear on Palanga Street Radio

This month's featured artwork on Palanga Street Radio: "The Cosmic Ear appears in a reading when a certain understanding enters the mind of the listener. Those who hear the all-encompassing "Om", shall know the songs of the earth and the stars -- and that sound is the mysterious juice which keeps all things in order, endlessly moving."
