The year is finished, oufffffffff! In October I began a 9 months residency at Cité des Arts in Besançon city, that will end in June 2016 (http://www.citedesartsetdelaculture.fr/). I have also received a residency in Rennes city for next year... quite busy there! I’ll invite my friends and finish 3 different commissions (in trio and quartet). My life is really ”eclectic”, ”divers”, not only working with musicians, but also dance, poetry, big band, small band. I am a real ”gitane”!! or Gypsy. I believe in that! Life is a real adventure… like music... or sounds!!!

Further residencies took place at Conservatoire de Rouen (master class, solo concert, workshop, screening of the documentary ”BasseContinue” by Christine Baudillon); Krakow Jazz Autumn (”Masters of Improvisation Residency”) with Evan Parker, Agusti Fernandez, Zlaiko Kaucic; gallery Non-Maison in Aix-en-Provence Aix (solo concert plus masterclass, lecture, screening of ”BasseContinue”); Cafe Otto, London, with Roger Turner, Maggie Nicols.

I undertook a tour for 10 days in California (Oakland, San Francisco, Berkeley, Los Angeles, Portland, San Diego) playing with Nicole Mitchell, Mark Dresser, Philppe Greenlief, India Cooke, Zeena Parkins, Myra Melford… Also toured Chicago with The Bridge – Douglas Ewdard, Michael Zerang, Jean Luc Cappozzo, Bernard Santacruz – making 11 concerts in 15 days. Further I made several concerts in Metz city around my tentet: ”Can you Hear Me” (clarinettes, sax, trumpet, trombone, violon, alto, violoncelle, bass, small percussions and drums, electric guitar).

Celebrating their 20th year as a group, SPUNK invited me to Norway for a collaborative performance. Participated in a bass meeting in Perpignan city, with solo concert and master class. And – mixed my tentet ”Can you hear me” for Ayler Records, to be released in March 2016!!
