carmymac birthday gig & quick summer update

september - william tyler @ paradiso
i've had a summer with only a few gigs and numerous missed encounters (so the 'summer update' will indeed be quick). i did have some great gigs in august (see below). & i just this minute hopped, skipped and a-cycled back from my september 'carmymac birthday gig' where william tyler - the 'sprankelend snarenwonder' ('sparkling strings miracle') - entertained and wowed and transported me somewhere heading midwest, probably around mississippi. no singing, lots of stories and a sprinkling of magic. (also no photos, not taken my camera out of my bag for a while now. it will be back sometime i'm sure.) for now, here's a video instead (& hopefully a link to another, new video session can be added here later...):

august - alice boman @ malmo festival
maybe this should just be an entire video blog entry (with other people's video, not mine). cos i didn't take any photos at alice boman's gig either, which i travelled all the way from amsterdam to malmo to see. i wasn't disappointed. great to get to meet alice, and tom (from this is head), and magnus (from adrian recordings) after the show. i only missed out on getting to meet jasper (who filmed this video):

august - nils frahm & anna von hausswolf @ grachten festival 
a sunny sunday afternoon gig on some forbidden terrain in amsterdam. it was pretty awesome. only a few pics to remember the day by. and maybe a video or two if i can dig any out. (coming soon)
