With the waves (Always)

I’ve had a track on my Wikiloops watchlist since weeks, again from Shi and Ray. I absolutely love this one, so I took my time before finally taking out my bass today. And together with my addition, it sounds like this:

Caught in the act (of photographing)

Yesterday I took a picture in the atrium. I had set the camera to square format, and later at home I used both Olympus Viewer 3 (to make a slightly desaturated .tif), and Nik Color Efex Pro to simulate Fuji Astia slide film. I called the result “Nature wins”, and it looks like this:

What I hadn’t noticed until I took that picture was that my colleague Arno caught me photographing, using his new Huawei P20 Pro phone (with a couple of Leica branded lenses, same as I used on my Olympus camera). So here am I taking the above picture, from Arno’s phone:

He took some more photos. Interesting what you can do with a phone these days…

So much for our lunch break. Thanks for viewing.

Two portraits of Arno, from last week

Last week I took pictures of some colleagues, on white, black, and grey backgrounds. I haven’t asked the colleagues if I could show their photos here (or in Flickr where these are hosted) – except Arno, who agreed. So here are two of the photos I took of him:

As always, thanks for viewing.

Feeling honoured

I’m included in this collage of photos (taken out of videos which we’ve made ourselves):

Wikiloops Videocollab 2018, participants

You can hear all the songs and watch all those videos in this playlist on the Wikiloops Youtube channel.

Thanks to Richard, founder of Wikiloops who has cut all these together, and thanks also to all participants. It was great to be a part of all of this fun jamming, and I hope to see some of you soon in real life.

Thanks go out to Navota for including me on her fine album. And thanks to you for reading, and for listening.

An awesome example of dedication

Listen to Glen McArthur, farmer, and maintainer of AVLinux, and maker of the AVL Drumkits (his and his son’s):

Oh, and hear Glen and his son Connor singing and playing as well:

Good stuff and people. I always say thanks when virtually meeting him in the LinuxMusicians Forum.

Greater Heights album by OliVBee

I’m included in OliVBee’s album “Greater Heights” on Wikiloops, with his remix of my debut track from March 10th of this year:

And I feel honoured to be included into that collection of very fine music, and musicians – wow merci, Olivier!

It’s also amazing to see a video you’re in, plus your own newest album featured on the same page, like here:

Greater heights indeed. What a feeling if one of your tracks makes it onto another one’s album. Wow.

Still have to listen to Oliv’s album, never heard some of the tracks before, but I’m very much looking forward to hearing these. He’s a very fine musician, so go and listen for yourself if you like.

Thanks for reading.
