At last, we, the choir "Stimmquadrat Obsteig", proudly presented our finished CD "Stemming". At the wonderful location "Bernardisaal" in Stams we had a big audience, the room was quite full and some listeners even had no chair, although we had 265 seats. We sang very good and got plenty of applause. Afterwards we offered Prosecco and juice, so the whole audience could talk to each other, and they bought a lot of CDs. If you want to order one, just mail me.

CD production

The CD production enters the last steps. I got the production OK from Austro Mechana and the bill for paying 386 EUR for music-licence. On thursday the last editings on the music will be finished, so kdg will get the data. Yesterday we had a meeting to correct the writing / grammar of the booklet. Today I phoned 4 hours and 50 minutes with the designer to fix all errors. We transferred about 10 GB data in that time. The poster and the handout will be finished on sunday, the booklet will be finished on tuesday, so we can deliver the data on wednesday. Finally the presentation of the CD will be on sunday, 15th of June, at Stams / Bernardi-Saal. I hope, most of you will come and listen to a very good concert and buy an excellent CD. It will start at 6 p.m.

On sunday we finished our CD-recording-marathon. After 24 hours of recording we ended up with 16 recorded songs. We had great fun and enjoyed the act. Now we are joyfully looking forward the final master for producing the CD. I finished up with 370 pictures taken during the recording.

my old teacher

On saturday Peter Ratzenbeck played a concert in Barwies that I visited after the recording session of our choir. He knew who I am and what guitar I play and what I am doing. It was a fine "meeting-again". In September he will come for a course and we will meet again. This evening I got a push-up for playing guitar!

CD recording

On friday we started to record the first CD of my choir. We got an excellent audio-chief who did not let through half a note and half a beginning. So it will be a very good recording. We took three songs on friday and 10 songs on saturday. Every song in a very good quality. But recording the whole day, that is from 9:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., is not easy. So we hav to add sunday to the recording session to get our 19 songs. I wonder how it will end up on sunday.

Rechtenthal day 2

The cellar party yesterday lasted very long, but no poblem in the morning singing deep notes. A big breakfast opened our day. Then we sang the whole day, sometimes only in groups of the same voices. In the big rehearsal we recorded digitaly the songs of our new CD. It was great. Almost no failures, wonderful sound and happyness all over the choir. In the evening we gave a big concert, recorded it too and the visitor was amazed! Now I will start the second examination of the cellar-bar.

The view from my room to the "Kalterersee" ist breathtaking! In the following hours I will explore the cellar-bar...

Advent street

Today was the "Advent-street event" of Obsteig. Each club had its own little market place to show and sell products. We sold "Bio-Fleischkassemmeln", "Punsch", "Kinderpunsch" and "Engelslocken", a sort of fried potatoes. The most important thing was that every club was present. After difficulties with enegry we started later but we were sold out at 23:30. No "Punsch" and nothing else neither. We had big fun celebrating this event.

On thursday we had a concert of my choire in Imst at the ubuntu-program. We had an event at the end of the Astrid Lindgren year and there were a lot of listeners at the church. We produced a fine performance in front of a full church. And they liked it. It is a pitty if you missed it.

Ferrara day 4

slept more than long after a final "too-much-beer". But we had fun with kletzmer musicians just round the corner of the hotel. In the afternoon we got the same place as on the first evening and we played only the second session because of the hoard of bubbles on my fingers left and right. But it was a fine evening and there was much crowd of people arround. Sometimes we had about 30 standing and listening. Finish of the evening was at Tiffany and the funny last order: "un' aqua mineral con gas" - "hehe". Brought me a beer and said: "gas inside anyway".

Ferrara day 3

Slept long again, breakfast in the usual bar. Rent a bike and drove through the city, took a look at my modellkit-shop at Via Carlo Mayer. For the evening we had a fine place in the first session but had to move for the evening session. The second place was good though. Finished after Blue-Star-Bar and Tiffany at the market place.

ferrara day 2

slept long with enough snoring for more people than we are. Went to the buskers office through rain, rain and rain. Got our buskers package and a fine place in front of the castle. We didn't play the first session, but went for dinner. Played from 21:30 to 23:30, sold some CDs and finally finished the evening at the BlueStarBar and at Tiffanys.
