In May 2015 I took part in the collaborative Active Crossover: Mooste Residency at MoKS, Estonia.

Two short films have been generated from this residency. Jim Haynes's film can be viewed here and an extract of John Grzinich's can be viewed here.

Cronica are also releasing an online series of pieces made from the AC: Mooste archive by participating artists. One piece will be release per month during 2016. To listen to these pieces visit here


The samples posted below have been left in their raw state therefore they are on the quiet side, so you might need to turn the volume up, or listen on headphones.

Unfortunately I had some camera issues, so only these photo's from my last day in Riga are of any use. Many thanks to Maksims Shentelevs for organising access and taking us with him.
