This newsletter informs you about my musical activities. Published 3 á 4 times a year. I dedicated my life to music and I am delighted you make a part of it.
Oh what a year! 2018 saw my wheels spinning in Okinawa (Japan), Taiwan, France, Germany, Poland, Italy, Belgium and India, Portugal.
Happily held lectures, masterclasses and workshops and curated the Taipei International Improvisation Music Festival, co-organized the HKU Flute Festival and my little ‘Jazz On The Sofa‘ Festival.
I lived in the jungle, dived with a shark, lived on a yacht and ate like a true king. But most important: performed and recorded (a.o. my first LP) with many truly extraordinary unknown and famous artists at sometimes fantastic venues.
A very rewarding life. Thank you all!
2019 will see
- New CD release by Lotz Of Music
- Solo Flutes with dance/video and electronics
- Les Baudoins Meet Purves/Lotz (Duo double bill)
- Mandala Tribe (India electro-jazz update)
- Tour with Møde (gorgeous Portugese band) in Spain (trailer)
‘Live at Jazzcase’ by Lotz Of Music
(Negocito Records, Belgium, release January 5th)
This CD marks our first collaboration with Swiss clarinet player Claudio Puntin. Lotz Of Music is an ensemble in an almost classical setting with flutes, clarinets, cello, prepared piano and percussion. This CD documents quite an electrified set and a new and very exciting direction in Lotz Of Music.
We would be delighted if you show us some love!
Solo Flute (with dance n video)
This year my solo program developed into new directions. My sonic expressions are matched with manipulation of live recorded or pre-recorded material now.

They are right.
