We were fortunate to have worked with him, at klub katarakt in 2009. Among other things, we prepared a performance of Vespers. Jens Röhm custom built, together with Olaf Hering, the echolocation devices which are asked for for this piece. Which amazed Alvin. It was a great experience.
On the photo are three quarters of the 2009 Nelly line-up. Two ghosts now.
A new year and Nelly Boyd is again performing at klub katarakt at Kampnagel, Hamburg. We are taking part in the opening on January 15, where we will – together with lots of Hamburg friends and colleagues – play in all three katarakt halls simultaneously (well, sometimes).
We are also performing in the closing Long Night (January 18), playing the Hamburg premiere of Double Helix by Alvin Lucier, for four electric guitars with e-bows.
We are playing in Erlangen on October 16, with a nice programme of pieces by Alvin Lucier, Morton Feldman, John Cage, James Tenney and Phill Niblock. Bayerischer Rundfunk will record and broadcast the concert.
