Tuesdaymorning, working on the computer, pc. It still works like shit. Ivo offered to install win2000 on my computer this weekend. Let's see. It might be hardware also.
Today studying, maybe running in the park and going to Ikea to get some money back for my other matrass.

Mondaynight and watching tv. I just watched Katja vs Bridget. Fun programme! I put the Bridget banner on my site :-)
Ailed's brother is here now, he came back from London to maybe study composition again here in Amsterdam. To be honest, I hope he will. He's a great composer! He wrote a wonderfull melody for me for baritone sax solo one time.
Ailed's still in Venezuela, in the Gran Savana as we speak. Dancing in small towns there. Sounds very good.
I will do my last recording day for the solo cd this wednesday. I will reocrd Balafon, which is very hard. I hope I will have enough time... we'll see...

I just brought Ailed to the airport and I wanted to go to sleep a bit more but I turned out to be writing some emails to see if I could program Ian Wilson's new proposition for us somewhere. Ian is one of the best composers I know nowadays. His works are magical and I would really like to have his new piece. But we have to find funding....

I haven't written in this blog for two weeks now. I have been busy with my solo cd recording. Thrusday and Friday I recorded this CD, but unfortunately I haven't finished it. In 10 days I will do the rest. It's an interesting programma and quite unconventional: three works by Jacob ter Veldhuis with tape (it was so much work to record these!!), Glass, Lauba and Turnage. I still have work on the Laube and the Melodies by Glass. Then I finished the recording. Then we'll see what happens.
Ailed will leave to Veneuzela for two weeks in Tuesday, to dance with her group. She got some money from the Netherlands embassy. Very exciting! This afternoon I will see her try out.

In between practicing. A bit bored. Ailed is out and Dick just if I wanted to go for a drink at some bar near the Dam. I don't think I'll go. I want to be rested tomorrow... Tomorrow I would like to see if I could go out to buy a matrass at Ikea.
But I also need to schedule a rehearsal with Wijnand... many things, like always...
I need hollidays again :-)
Done with 4tet rehearsal and at home now. Sending some cd's to newspapers and what not.

Still haven't found a solution for a new bed yet. I fixed with the help of my parents the 'lattenbodem' I have now, but not quite well enough.... I shou;d buy a new matrass and fix the 'latenbodem' better.... plenty to do!!!

The CD presentation is out of my head now and the 'normal' rhythm is more or less back. I am studying now for my solo cd with works by Ter Veldhuis, Glass, Lauba and Turnage. I just decided to plan the recording. I have been postponing the recording for a year now because there's never enough time. But studying has been going smooth. Let's see what happens. Next week I will have a rehearsal with Ter Veldhuis. I am recording three of his pieces.

Something else. Yesterday PRDV presented itself to the 'audience'. And to be honest, I really liked de Vries.... I am not sure yet, maybe there's more to it than I think now... but I was quite enthousiastic...!
