Many things are going on and here are some highlights:
2) We finished our superb new JazzWerkstatt Wien Festival “Vienna Rooomservice”. People really liked it and we had 9 wonderful acts along workshops and installations. Furthermore we installed a subtle surround sound system and people could sit around the stage and enjoy impressive acoustics. On Flickr you find some nice photos.
3) Word is out: I´m composing my first chamber opera “Der unbezwingbare Simson” which means “The indomitable Samson”. Thanks to a so called Startstipendium I´ll be able to finish my work till next summer 2011. The exact date for the world premier is still written in the stars, but the music will be played by ensemble Studio Dan. The ensemble will also play some instrumental scenes out of the opera in it´s program “The Big Gruntz!” June 2011, that features compositions of Daniel Riegler and mine. Watch out!
