"Afghan Greyhound" is a soundscape/video piece made by Marty Kelly and myself. The images and music were created in response to each other, as a meditation on the lives of refugees. Marty's work focuses on the endurance & strength of the human spirit of those living in regions of conflict, chaos and uncertainty. Today, and until Nov 2nd it will be screened in J.Cacciola Gallery New York as part of exhibition 'Trí' and is available on the new album Water Door.

Album Launch: WATER DOOR by Anna Morley
Australian multi-instrumentalist / composer Anna Morley will release her third studio album 'Water Door' on the 6th of July at Fabriktheatre, Berlin accompanied by her live band and visuals. Anna is principally a vibraphonist, but also lends her talents to violin, vocals and a range of keyboard and percussion instruments. Anna will perform with Dhari Vij (Australia) on double bass and Phil Loof (Germany) on guitars. The ensemble has been working together since March and are planning to tour Europe at the end of the year.
'Water Door' was recorded, mixed and produced by Alex Forster in Berlin and London. Anna recently relocated to Berlin after residing in Barcelona for the past seven years where she wrote and released both her debut EP Character (2009, Gazebo Music) and full-length album Red Balance (2011). Anna Morley is currently supported by Berlin's artist collective, OneBeat. CD's will be available for purchase at the launch.

We will be playing on Saturday Nov 3rd at Neukölln's Madame Claude, come on down if you're in the area. On the 5th I will begin recording my new album, once again with Alex Forster (UK) in his long jons behind the mixing desk, and this time round I'm fortunate to have Jorge da Rocha (POR) on double bass. I'm excited to be able to share my new music with you soon. Jorge and I will also be playing somewhere in Berlin on Saturday the 10th, perhaps where you least expect it.

I am working on a brand new show called "Eastern Standard Time" in collaboration with Russian poet, anthropologist and documentary maker Sairica Rose and acclaimed Irish contemporary artist, Marty Kelly. It will be a night to remember- original live music, hand-made visuals, poetry, performance art and a few other surprises thrown in. As I will be moving to Berlin next month, it will also be my last show in Barcelona for now, and I'm sure it will be a emotion filled one. Here's the trailer!
