Hoff´s new composition ”Living” has been successfully performed at Bodø Jazz Open in January 2012 and at Maijazz in Stavanger in May. ”Living” features Hoff´s new bandsetting with Marilyn Mazur, Anders Jormin and Arve Henriksen. The composition is a 9- part piece with several melodic themes, yet with great room for the band´s improvisational skills.
In April 2012 Hoff did a solo piano tour in Kirgisistan and Kazakhstan. He visited Bishkek International Jazz Festival, Almaty International Jazz Festival and the Shabyt Universitety of Astana, where he also did a masterclass for the jazz department.
The concert in Astana was made in cooperation with the Norwegian Embassy.
