First of all, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 🙂
Unfortunately, quite a few concerts in December and January have been cancelled due to the lockdown but there are still some good news that I would like to share with you.

One Dimension and a Halfby Cinzia Nistico, where I played the trumpet part, has been selected by Radiophrenia Glasgow and Future Nostalgia FM in Berlin for broadcasting. Schedules will be known by the end of January. Now we are in preparation of a live version of it as well. Stay tuned for updates!!
|An imaginary journal for voice, trumpet and electronics|
Script /music/voice: Cinzia Nistico
Trumpet: Igor Iofe
A journalist is invited to document an expedition aimed at reaching Earth’s fluid strata. The journal starts from her arrival at a base in the Antarctica, where 4 heat-proof shuttles will be lowered down a 200kms long vertical tunnel. Each shuttle will contain one single member of the expedition: the journalist will be one of them. However, a series of events both preceding and accompanying the expedition, will change the prospective of the whole mission.. The story alludes to the Nordic myth of Jörmungandr the World Serpent, who grew to the point that it could embrace the entire circumference of the Earth. In the myth, when Jörmungandr will release its tail Ragnarök will begin. Ragnarök is a series of natural disasters leading to the submersion of the Earth in water.
From The Athens To Amsterdam And Back
You can listen on Soundcloud to From The Athens To Amsterdam And Back, a beautiful piece by Thomas Nakas (aka tomi) that I recently recorded a trumpet part for.
|Music/piano/production: Thomas Nakas|
Trumpet: Igor Iofe
‘Days that gone never come back again. The name is of this project is representative of the process that music goes from Athens to Amsterdam and came back as feedback.’
|I wish you all the best in 2022 and hope to see you all at the concerts next year 🙂|
