Yes, yes

I know, I am always way behind updating this website. October was quite busy with various concerts (Beequeen, Wieman, Kapotte Muziek, a solo performance on the release of ’45’18’, Freiband etc. Kapotte Muziek will play November 25th in Madrid, Spain at La Casa Enendida and Beequeen will play again in Nijmegen on December 10th at cafe Shamrock.

There is also a new/old Beequeen release on Bandcamp, the original demo for the Sugarbush album. I found the old DAT of that recently and Freek and me think it still sounds nice, although perhaps also a bit different than the album we finished with Mark Posyden. Get your copy here

Otherwise I am working on a whole bunch of new projects, which may include: A new collaborative work with Howard Stelzer reaching it’s conclusion (for Bocian Records), the start of mixing material recorded in September with Richard Francis, a new Freiband CD (probably for Takanobu Hoshino) based on canoe sounds friends of mine recorded for in 2005, small bits to the new most poppy CD by Beequeen, setting up major parts for a more ambient pop CD by the same band (duties are divided there), mixed material for at least two and half album for The Tobacconists (and waiting for Scott’s and Mike’s comments). Wieman has a track about DJ-ing for Esc Rec, and will expand their ‘Classic’ album into a 40 minute opus for Baskaru, and a solo piece with balloon sounds for Ballon & Needle (see picture). And to be released soon is a cassette on Ultramarine Records by Pick-up, perhaps our final work?

Wouter Jaspers and me are definetly playing more concerts next year again!
