Mon parcours musical
Failed audition to study recorder at Brussels conservatoire. Examiner winced at literally the first note. Angleterre nul points.
Realised classical guitar is always out of tune because the frets are in the wrong places so have shelved that. Thank you Harry Partch and Ross Duffin for showing me the light. That did eventually lead to my acquiring a guqin but currently a little too much cultural baggage to do it justice. Thank you R H van Gulik for making that clear.
Currently playing at the Last Chance Saloon. Classical harmonica anyone?
Satie, Couperin, Toots Thielemans and Anna von Hausswolff amongst my many inspirations. No doubt in good company as I plot my escape from Brexit Britain…
