Gabriel Prokofiev /// Concerts & DJ-sets dates 2011

-finally got the chance to post this schedule of most of the concerts + DJ-sets I’m involved in this year. Several of them have happened already of course, but better late than never. The ‘Beethoven9 Orchestral Remix’ got a better response than I could of dreamed for in Nantes & Angers this week- more coming on that soon – I promise.

  1. Momma Switch here. I like the sound of Concerto for Turntables and MND combo. There’s obviously a lot of possibilities – so go get em’. Don’t forget to use the peeps around you – like DJ Switch – he’s full of ideas and tries to take things to new heights. Don’t take it all on yourself, delegate and see where that takes you. Lovely to see all the work you are doing, I’m amazed at what people can do and how it becomes their life! I didn’t know you could make MC’ing, rapping and beatboxing, or indeed DJ’ing, your career but you can. And it’s good to see young composers like yourself getting out and about and pushing the boundaries – I don’t get the chance to get out much, too involved in the life of a carer, but will make it a New Year’s Resolution to get to see and hear more of your works! Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year from Momma Switch and the Switch Family!
