For a number of years I have been focusing [ Bio-mechanical studies ] relating to mobility of vehicular traffic and relating the motions to human mobility – it involves obtaining data by recording traffic mobility, mathematics , and psychoanalysis . The equations that I produce are translatable into musical notation.Its a long and tedious process but rewarding because you can do so much more by involving mathematics, physical and biological sciences , psychology and computer programing in composing.
I am for example busy for 2 years with a vocal piece roduced through TTS singing and speech synthesis totally artificial which based on vehicular travelling motion and overtaking- studying and examining travelling motion, overtaking principles in a multilane uni-directional system and inspecting phantom cluster formations in traffic – were clusters occur but just like a platoon the vehicles do not stop but carry on moving at a reduced speed [after peak hours] – resulting in warped concertina formation that produce fascinating aural results when translated into sound.
Oh,on the 25th of May at 11h00 at the Sasol Museum in Stellenbosch I am featured on Gesticular Cena 8 an 8 minute work from 2006 written for the projekt-insitu [French] company. see if you are in the area and catch a glimpse

Dear Friends and Colleagues
Advance notice of a piano recital I’m giving at 1300 on Tuesday 14 May in the Fismer Hall, Stellenbosch Konservatorium, in the regular lunchtime series.
It’s a preview of a programme I’m playing at the Ghent Summer Festival in July, which includes a group of my shorter piano pieces (written between 1995 and 2009), interleaved with some of the works on which they were modelled. It looks something like this:
MB: BWV Fragments; Hob Fragments
Meade Lux Lewis: Honky Tonk Train Blues
MB: 38a Hill Street Blues
Erik Satie: Trois Gymnopédies
MB: Three Toys
Cole Porter: Song transcriptions
Be great to have you there.
