On the mainland, near Hantu Station.

 

Stumbled across this in a timeline somewhere, today. Thanks, sistah Bibi.

Oooh! Almost forgot I’ve got all that space, hidden as it was below the mess I made on top of it.

Past week, I got in touch with sister Aurora Metaluna again, who came and jammed here with Silas and me in the beginning of 2010. She took a short leave of the music stuff shortly afterwards and wants to get busy again. Needless to say, we grabbed the opportunity with both hands and set a date for our first rehearsal. And since I figured out a way to use all the intsruments and stuff in the studio (including the synth and the RC-50) without having to wear a headphone, this might very well turn out to be quite interesting.

Aurora is a great singer, you know.

Still, that Cubase thing. Got it upstairs on the Coolsounds Machine and it doesn’t oxydate. Apart from that, it even fires up when it’s just been sitting there for years. Dopn’t need a battery, you see.

So up until now, every time when I wanted to record something, I would think: why not go straight for the RC-50. It’s so much more practical. But today, my wife said that it might be nice to actually record something. Sounds like a great idea to me.

And then work on doing it live.


Here we are, jamming it up on stage in a local pub during the weekly open stage night. Allow me to introduce from left to right sistah Sandra and brothers Chris and Erik, with your’s truly in the background, phasing in and out of this dimension due to the subsonic vibrations of the cajon that brother Chris uses for the riddims.

It’s called JidWa7da, which is Arab for hand in hand. You can find it here. Feel free to download it to jam along with, spread it around or play it when you go to sleep.

Last night, sister Brinda Allen passed away in her sleep. She was a wonderful woman – I feel fortunate that she was my friend. This rose is for her.
