Yesterday I was at a party with some of my musician friends, we call it an "inspiration party". The point of this is to meet, and do some kind of performance for each other if we feel like it, listening, and giving each other response and inspiration. It´s a nice opportunity to try something new, and yesterday we played as a trio for the first time, and it was so nice. Here Didi took a photo of some of the instruments involved:
And this is Cezary, jamming classical songs for us.
Thomas Fridner started this tradition a year ago, and there have been some parties since then. So great initiative, to be recommended :)
I am very exited having a contrabas in the band, it´s so cool and it gives a lot of new opportunities with using the bow as well. Cezary is also very engaged now on this process, and knows more or less all of the songs already, so we can focus on the sound and playing together more when we rehearse. I so look forward to our gig in january. It is going to be great!
I got hold of some money now. Thats a releif. Because then I can proceed my plans with recording. Now we do need a drummer and a producer.
A lot of ideas is swirling around in my brain and I have a lot of energy engaging in everything. Like, environment and world peace, and small stuff like that ;) And I really think that EVERYBODY (that understands Swedish) should watch this 6 minutes interview with Hans Rosling, showing how to solve the world problems. In short: We should focus on helping the poorest people (that is not so complicated btw.), and the richest part of the population (we who can afford to travel abroad once a year) should do A LOT more with the environmental issues. We have to stop closing our eyes. I know I'm a slow learner, but from now on I will really try to be a concient consumer as much as ai possibly can, not just think about prize and taste.
But, sometimes I also need to think like this, or I´ll go crazy:
A contradiction? I dont think so. Slow living. Concious living.
Enjoy december, stay green, and look how nice the toy catalogues are in Sweden this year! Kids playing together with kids toys, finally! :)
