Tim and I are playing in Basel on Saturday 14 May at Christoph Schiller’s atelier concert series. Very excited to be doing Tim’s Opus 1 from Time with People again, as well as the pieces John White and Matteo Fargion wrote for use a couple of years ago. Alongside these pieces we’re doing Louis d’Heudieres’ excellent Laughter Studies – new recording for us ready next week all being well – and also my piece in which one thing depends on another. After watching other people wander casually out of airports I’m trying the hand luggage only option this time. I bought a new bag and hope I can carry everything, including the equipment for all these pieces. I need to be really careful about that list of stuff you’re not supposed to bring into the cabin though. Could easily get that wrong if I’m not careful.
