I have always thought it fitting that The Galileo Project travel to Australia.

Asia Tour - October 18, 2010

Today we had our dress rehearsal in the concert hall of the twin towers. The hall has a completely wooden interior, like some of the finest European halls we've played in. The new projection screen for the Galileo show was up. This one is much lighter and easier to travel with. The ornate original one was extremely heavy and took hours to set up and take down.

Asia Tour - October 17, 2010

Today, feeling more rested after our day off, we began rehearsals at the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur. The massive towers have the Malaysian Philharmonic's concert hall contained in the shopping mall of the complex. We were led through the bowels of this building to a tiny rehearsal room, going through gate after gate, much like the final shot of the 70's TV show: Get Smart.

Asia Tour - October 14, 2010

A big hello to all our Tafel-Fans! On Thursday morning (or very late Wednesday evening!) we set off to Asia for another exciting tour. As well as returning to China for the third time, we will play a couple of concerts in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The trip was easily the longest travel day that we've ever experienced: over 27 hours of travel!
