it’s been a while since we’ve updated SatnaMusic’s site, so here’s a little roundup of what’s happened in fall 2015 and what are our plans for 2016.
2015 saw a lot of activity in the live arena. SatnaMusic organized a tour for Sid’s Contemporary Collective to two cities in Germany. The band played two gigs at a lovely little club in Berlin-Neukölln called the ‘Sowieso’ and continued with three concerts at the Musiktage Festival in Donaueschingen in the surroundings of the contemporary art museum ArtPlus.
Here you can see a complete set of the second night in Berlin
…and here’s a video of the last concert in Donaueschingen
Another interesting concert took place on October 22nd in Helsinki’s Temppeliaukio Church, when renowned trumpeter Verneri Pohjola and Sid presented their new duo project ‘NUCLEUS’
Now for the new year 2016.
Sid has composed new music for string quartet. ‘Quatuor no.3 – Equilibrium’ will be performed by the Sid Hille Camerata in a little concert series in April and May
– April 12th, Länsi-Helsingin musiikkiopisto, Munkkiniemi
– April 15th, Temppeliaukio Church, Helsinki
– April 17th, Pitsku Culture Church, Pitäjänmäki
– May 7th, Uusi Paviljonki, Kauniainen
The Contemporary Collective has already started their season with a concert last week in Juttutupa, Helsinki. This avantgarde setup returns on May 21st with a concert at Helsinki’s nowadays most important jazz club ‘Koko‘.
Take a look at all of Sid’s upcoming gigs here.
SatnaMusic will be releasing at least two new recordings this year: Sid’s follow-up on his legendary soundscapes-vinyl-release ‘ONE‘ – this one will be ‘TWO’ – to be recorded in February, and in fall all three of Sid’s string quartets by the Sid Hille Camerata.
Some plans involving the Sid Hille Brotherhood and a newly founded piano trio (which doesn’t even have a name yet) will be revealed in our next update.
So, stay tuned! And thanks for stopping by!
