I'm very grateful, very happy for this 2010,

participated in 2 projects with The Orchestra of Crafty Guitarists, in Italy and Argentina, and a performnace of Terry Riley's In C with Francesco Dillon, Alter Ego and other superb musicians at Teatro San Martin

91 live performnaces throughout the year...

also 2 live performances with my students and one at my daughter's kindergarden

for the big screen recorded and completed the soundtrack for Claustropolis together with Matias Mango,

I have 2 records ready: Kabusacki 10, Luck (will be released in Argentina on January 6 2011, and in Japan next April), and Samalea/Kabusacki (featuring Tony Levin) Ai Limiti del Mondo, which is now being mixed

I recorded several guitars for Palito Ortega's upcoming tribute to Neri Nelson CD, a classic rock'n'roll album;

mixed "Metropolis" and have several recordings edited and mastered by La NFCO for release next year..

samalea and I went to sagitario studio in lujan last wednesday to deliver the material so leo can begin mixing the kabusacki/samalea cd. it already sounds incredible. tony's bass is stunning!

on thursday matias and I went to ariel lavigna's studio for corrections on the mix of claustropolis, and on to the 5.1 mix. the movie will soon be completed.
