People in Belgium — please go to see my friend Sonia Paco-Rocchia’s installation.

Today is my last full day in Amsterdam.

I will miss each brick of the city.

This is the west entrance to the Vondelpark.

I will develop my photos, and share more, but most are not unusual.

For me the ordinary streets and the ever present water will make up the dearest memories of the actual city.

The best images are of my friends that I have made in here.

Now I am off to Rotterdam to the North Sea Jazz Festival.
It will be exciting to see one of the world’s largest jazz festivals.

Any tips on the festival?

Then I go to visit Sonia in Mons, Belgium.

I hope to see her show!

Amsterdam at Oorsprong Curators Series

by on Jul.02, 2013, under Concerts, Events, Films, Media, Music, Projects, Travel, Video

After my work at STEIM, I was fortunate to play with two improvising musicians, Frank Mauceri and Ángel Faraldo as part of the Oorsprong Curators Series.

This is an interesting improvised music series in North Amsterdam organized by bassist Raoul van der Weide.

The major constraint imposed by the series is that none of the players have ever played together before.

The second rule is that each player can only be in the series once a season.

Even though I worked with Frank at STEIM, we did not play together until this show.

It was a wonderful evening of creative music. Frank Mauceri and Ángel Faraldo are both wonderful musicians and I hope to play with them again.

I was captivated by the other two sets featuring Dana Reason, piano; Lori Goldston, cello; Ricardo Tejero, sax+clarinet; Jaap Blonk, voice; bassist Dominic Lash and drummer Onno Govaert.

Ricardo Tejero, (sax+clarinet) and bassist Dominic Lash did not play together because they are involved in a tour supporting their CD. I had the opportunity to hear this duo twice, once at Raoul’s Atelier and once as part of Tabula Rasa: Improvised Music @ Maarten Luther Kerk – basement.

Dana Reason (piano) and cellist Lori Goldston are also playing together, so they played in separate sets for the Oorsprong. I arrived late and missed their showcase at Raoul’s atelier, but I hope to see them play in future as they are both based on the West Coast of the USA.

 

My thanks to the organizers of the event and the volunteers who support the series.

This was my first opportunity to play in Europe and I was happy to be in such great musical company.
