Lots of concerts!

On Monday evening, me and my parents went very spontanously to a concert in Zürich... It might not have been the greatest Idea since I had to wake up around half seven in the morning, but it was totally worth it!! I would say one of the best concerts I have ever heard..! (You can see some video footage ->here<- and you can get to Cory's Website ;)

But I did not only go to concerts this week, I also played at the Rock and Jazz night of the Blues Festival in Baden :) It was a really cool performance and we had a great time playing in front of quite a large crowd!
On Thrusday I went again to the Blues Festival with two friends but only to watch and learn, and yesterday there was a Jam Session in Brugg where we played a bit. Later in the evening I went onto the old Castle Ruin to meet some of my friends from school and we had a lovely evening :)

Young Composers Project #3

A very busy week! Besides the many exams that are still taking place, I also had a concert for my friends "Matura" Examinations. It was really cool and I think it was the best performance we ever had.
On Friday, just after school, I rushed home to take a shower and leave again soon to go to Boswil. With a few weeks in between I meet up with ten other people to participate at a young composers course in the middle of nowhere on the countryside.. It's a lot of fun though and we are having a great time together making music and having fun, playing table tennis and discussing a lot :)

Pipilotti Rist

This weekend was a little longer than usual and I didn't mind that at all..
On Thursday, after going to Baden with some friends eating lunch and spending some time together in the park, I went to my dad's hairdressing salon to take some pictures for him since he's about to get a new website designed..
After hurrying home and getting my microphones and other recording stuff, I met up with a friend of mine who plays the drums. We meant to record a bit but in the end we only had a really amazing jam session :)

On Friday me and my mum went to Zürich in the morning because there's an art exhibition of Pipilotti Rist, a Swiss video-artist, which we wanted to see. Her video installations are really cool and unique and it was a great exhibition! Really calming with lots of lights and nice music too.

In the afternoon I wanted to meet with another friend to make some music but unfortunately we canceled our plans since he participated at a musical-performance of Kiss Me Kate where lots of my friends participated too.
And that's where I went on Saturday evening with my parents, to see this cool performance at our town theatre. I didn't participate at the musical because the piano voice is really hard and it'd taken me quite a while to learn it and I did not have that time at the moment, so I don't regret my decision. But it was really nice to see all of my friends singing and playing their instruments altogether with the cool theatre performance :)
