Ferrara day 1

arrived in Ferrara at 19:30, same hotel, same room as every year. Took a round through the city, some new features. In the pubs they still know us and offered us special beer-prices. Tiffany: "Haetten Sie die Guete zu zahlen?" :-)

recording session

On thursday evening Gregor and I startet a recording session, that lasted 2 hours and brought us very interesting material for the "best-of-sampler". Then we visited the new WELI, drank some beer and enjoyed the music of the 60s. I had decided to sleep in the SH3 (thanks David for the cheese!) so we could enjoy a very empty WELI very long. Finished the evening with a SH3-kitchen-beer-sit-in. On friday I woke up and did many things I had to do in town. One thing was a tiny little reissue of Gastophon (1994) and Saxophon (1993) for someone who burned down the songbooks in a campfire.

We made a wonderful concert at the Gasthof Stern with our choire. Jazz sound with band and solosingers. We had a great audience and there were many listeners. We performed songs like Mah na - mah na, lean on me, while my sugar walks down the street, ... Two hours of happy jazzy musik under chestnuttrees.

On monday evening we had the mass for St. Josef, which is the patron saint of the church in Obsteig. We celebrated the "Orgelsolomesse" from W.A.Mozart, KV 259 C maj. Plus Tolite Hostias from Saint Saens and Graduale (Locus iste) from Anton Bruckner. With us was a little orchestra. The mass was celebrated by Abt German, the abbot from Stams. So it was a very very big event with a church full with listeners even almost behind the organ. Even the "Sch├╝tzen" and the "Feuerwehr" liked our singing and it was really good. Afterwards we had a fine meal in the Aschlandhof. I recorded it digitally while singing and there were no problems and the sound is pretty fine.

micro br

I used my new digital recorder boss micro br for the first time as recording device for the choir because we had the final rehearsal on friday. The recordings are very very good. The first hearing told me that it is even better than the MD recording. I can regulate the input signal better so it is not warped. The second reasons are the plugin effects and the mastering tools of the device. I was cheering! I'm happily looking forward the concert on monday evening, 19.03.2007.

Little drummer boy

I was with my sister at the rehearsal of the "Blasmusik" as listener. This evening they had noone at the drums. So the chief asked me if I would take the part of the big drum, so the musicians can play better in time. I did it and they were happy and astonished that I can play the big drum right in time. Well. Another musik part.

Closed my lessons in school at the correct time, reached the train in time, drove my bike to Gregor, rang the bell - nothing. Called Gregor at the cellular - nothing. Got a sms: I am in berlin. It came to my mind that we talked about that. Shit. Because of the distance I missed the next train and had a fine time at the train station...

Johann Haller Finisage

Obsteig has very few remarkable persons. One of them is Johann Haller, who was on the famous northpole-expedition with Payer and Weyprecht 1874. He died in Obsteig 1906. Read the story at Franzjosefland. Obsteig made some activities arround his life during the year and today was the final one. Some days ago I got a call: We need music and we have heared you can play guitar, would you please play on that evening? I did it. About 50 people listened to my guitar music and I played about 90 minutes. While listening they had the chance to drink and eat and have a look on three displays that told his life, the expedition and what was in that time in Obsteig. And they all liked the fine guitar sound. It was a fine evening and I felt like being in Ferrara. But solo.
