radim hanousek is studying jazz performance at the JAMU school of the arts here in Brno
I have been studying PhD at Brno's Janáček Academy of Music And Performing Arts since 2016. My primary project at the moment is the NOCZ quartet, fronted by trumpetist Didrik Ingvaldsen (CD NOCZ & Iva Bittová, Hevhetia 2014 and Toys, Toys and Toys, Hevhetia 2013). Alongside that, I have my own project, Dust in the Groove. But quite a few other groups also see and hear a lot of me: the experimental Czech/Italian project Fábio Delvo quartet, several comtemporary classical projects (with Peter Graham, Dunami ensemble, Lucie Vítková, and Michal Indrák), the Husa na provázku theatre, and the Brno Philharmonic. I also have some involvement in a variety of other jazz projects (Cotatcha Orchestra, Mulligang). And I've lent a musical hand to several persons and projects outside of jazz, like music for Feste a D'EPOG theatres as well as publisher Albatross, who needed music for their audiobooks.
In the last few years, I've had two musical moments that were a real pleasure and honor for me. In 2011, I performed at TEDx Prague alongside Marián Friedl, and in September 2013, I joined Mokré ruce project at the international Moving Sound festival in New York.
