Performances in Germany, piano on Woody Allen documentary, a brand new CD and more…

What a Fall it has been!!! A very  busy, eventful, and exciting fall indeed…

I passed my Doctoral qualifying exams at California Institute of the Arts in late August and am on track with progressing to candidacy and finishing my Performer-Composer DMA degree in May, 2012! Immediately after the exams I started the school year at CalArts and Chapman University, with the addition of the Department of Music at California State University, Northridge where now I teach Harmony. These three music schools have such enormous differences in their curriculum, student body, and academic/creative pedagogical approach and yet I love teaching at every one of them!

Late in September I spent a week at PACT Zolverein in Essen, Germany, where I performed my piece “2” as part of the CalArts Plays Itself festival. This was such a great experience at a truly unique art space, where I performed in front of a very educated and warm German and international audience,  made new friends, met old ones, and enjoyed some great contemporary art and quality German beer. After the festival I spent a week in Bulgaria where besides seeing friends and family I was given the honor of a 2-hour interview/program on Bulgarian National Radio dedicated to my music and my latest CD – “Peasant Funk” by my 11-piece Peasant Funk ensemble Orkestar MÉZÉ.

Back in Los Angeles in October, I had the chance to work with Emmy-winning, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Robert Weide and record piano for his “Woody Allen: A Documentary”, part of the American Masters series. A week after this memorable session, I went into the studio to work with my good friend and amazing musician Miroslav Tadic on his score for “Invisible Writing” by Single Wing Turquoise Bird. This was so much fun as I got to put down some funky synth bass tracks to go with beautiful images by outstanding filmmakers.

November of course was marked by the most important event in my band Orkestar MÉZÉ‘s short life yet – the release of our debut album “Peasant Funk” on 11/11/11!! We filled up the legendary Key Club in Hollywood and had a blast. Now you can enjoy our music in your home, your car or on your iPod, as you can download the album on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby and other fine digital distributors, or purchase a hard copy at www.peasantfunk.com!

Now I am looking forward to playing with MÉZÉ on the Santa Monica Pier on December 17th and then taking a few days of well deserved vacation! Have a fun and safe holiday season everyone!!

Cheers,

Milen
