At the beginning of the year, David Kollar managed to travel to the USA again, this time at the invitation of American music legend Pat Mastelotto from King Crimson. After a residency in Mastelotto's Texas recording studio, David moved to Los Angeles, where he continued his already successful collaboration with sound designer Rick Cox, with whom he recently also performed in Slovakia. During his stay, in addition to presenting his original work to many first-class musicians and producers, David also managed to gain a lot of new inspiration and establish interesting new collaborations. You can read more about his experiences from the trip at Hudba.sk. David Kollar's residency was financially supported by public resources of the Slovak Arts Council.
