Para cruzar el sueño @ MANTIS Festival

Tape piece Para cruzar el sueño, which I wrote last au­tumn at the NOVARS Research Centre, was premiered as part of the Spring 2010 MANTIS Festival at the University of Manchester on Sunday 21st February at 2:00 pm. I also played cello on the Saturday night in the First MANTIS Battle of Improvised Music: Voice, acoustic in­stru­ments and elec­tronics, which was a lot of fun. We mainly played ran­domly se­lected trios, but fin­ished with a mass im­prov dir­ected by Gavin Osborn. Here’s a video of that:
