Now it seems that I've been doing experiments in music forever, since the first time I connected my MIDI keyboard to a computer and a software that was installed on 12 floppy discs at the time.
Charlie is a school project that I've done with Leyla Nasibova in 2009 at Media Lab Helsinki.
On 30th of December, just to say goodbye to the previous year adequately, and eager to play in my home country after a long while, I've accepted the invitation from a friend of mine Nenad Markovic, trumpet player and improviser, to play a gig in Novi Sad. It was organized by amazing people behind the name of Improstor Novi Sad . They've started series of concerts of experimental music in August this year, and this was 11th one in the row. So, I started preparing a bit more than a week before the concert, when we determined the date and all.
This is the recorded improvisation of my practicing for the solo performance at Ptarmigan in Helsinki. Ptarmigan is a place run by Tara Pattenden and her husband, and the best place for experimental music in Helsinki. There are events each week, and many super-interesting artists from all over the world are coming there to play. Check it out here: http://ptarmigan.fi/en/pages/about
