I had the pleasure to sub Marko for another concert with Quartzite at Jazzx Pletterij in Haarlem. They made a live stream with a really nice quality, big up to them.
For a few years now I’ve had the joy to collaborate with Gwen and of course said yes when she asked if I could record a vibraphone part for her project: composing and producing one song every 3-4 days, for one month. In the mean time we’ve recorded more parts and it became a whole of a great dream-pop album.
You can listen to it on many of your usual platforms
Plenty of cool G.T. Thomas artwork on her website, where you can even purchase the album, with a real highlighter pen inside!

Dès l’adolescence j’ai été charmé par le tango et les musiques d’Argentine en général. J’ai commencé à travailler sur ces pièces solo dès mes débuts à Barcelone, après avoir eu une très bonne expérience en quintette de tango à l’Académie de Musique de Monaco, particulièrement enrichissante de par les rencontres régulières avec Gustavo Beytelmann. En plus de l’arrangement, il a fallut trouver des façons d’adapter ma technique pour faire sonner ces pièces originales pour guitare au vibraphone, avec toutes les difficultés que cela représente en termes de résonance, articulation, tempo et nuances.
I got into Tango and Argentine music since my teenage years. After an experience playing it with quintet at Monaco Music Academy, where we received guidance from Gustavo Beytelmann, I moved to Barcelona where I started practising these pieces. Besides doing the arrangement, I had to adapt my technique in order to make these original guitar pieces sound on vibraphone, finding good compromises regarding resonance, articulation, tempo and dynamics.
Recorded January 2012 at esmuc, Barcelona
A playlist from our first full concert:
Recorded in January 2012 at Esmuc, Barcelona, 3/6 parts.
Recorded in May 2014 at Codarts, Rotterdam.
I practised this piece as a part of my Master Research on contemporary music performance practice and visited the composer to exchange with him on the interpretation and study of the piece.
After a fair amount of changes in lineup, rehearsing and playing in attics and basements AntiforZ finally released a first official EP. Music can be good, bad, beautiful or ugly but it should never, never be boring! From the center of the galaxy we bring you music to dance to with any amount of left feet, choirs to gurgle and ample opportunity for your friends to make fun of you while you turn it up to max waiting for the traffic lights …
