July 2012

Time is passing so quickly. And I’m so busy that even writing a short paragraph to update the website is a chore. Anyway, I’m doing it now.

I’m on a tour of the USA with The Crimson ProjeKCt and we’re opening for Dream Theater. It’s going well and we’re enjoying ourselves. Now a day off in Richmond, Virginia, and writing this.

I just wanted to fill you in about releases of mine in 2012. Some have already come out, but more is in the pipeline:

Releases 2012 so far:
Quartet for the End of Time – Modus Novus
centrozoon – boner
Stick Men – Open
Adrian Benavides – Same Time Next Life (Producer)
Zweiton – Form (Producer)

Upcoming releases 2012:
centrozoon – fire
Lee Fletcher feat. Markus Reuter and Lisa Fletcher – Faith in Worthless Things
Specimen 13 – Echosystem (Producer)
Stephen Parsick & Markus Reuter – Lament
Stick Men – Deep

Other great news: Thomas Blomster (of the Colorado Chamber Ensemble) has started with his orchestral arrangement of my piece Todmorden 513. This will hopefully lead to a performance some time in 2013. This is too good to be true and I’m thrilled!

May 2012

I just returned from a 10-day recording and touring project with Stick Men (with Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto).

We spent the first couple of days recording and mixing a “quick’n’dirty” improv album called ‘Open’ that will see it’s release in South America next week and a general release to our fans on June 1st. A pre-order link will be made available soon. We’re planning something very special for our proper new studio album and need all the support possible to make it happen.

After 2 rehearsals, during which we learned a couple of the new Stick Men pieces and a new (for me) King Crimson piece, we then played 6 nights of shows to wonderful audiences. We can’t wait to go to South America next week to play more.
