It's been little over a month now since I've started playing on the piano, reading notes, studying easy tunes and I have to say: it's big fun! Can I play the Moonlight sonata already ? Of course not, but I have still 8 and a half months to go, so no stress. As I explained in the first post, I will try and share my progress every month, so this clip is already a bit longer. And it features me, actually playing. I won't tell you the number of takes before I had one without mistakes :)
I've had my site for quite some time now, the internet archive goes way back to 2002 even! To be fair, most of the content until 2007 wasn't that interesting (not sure what makes me think it is nowadays though, but okay ... ), but it was mostly the primary source of well .. me :). Apart from that, I also use Twitter, but I want to turn this around and let my site be the primary source.
I like personal challenges. For 2018 my main goal is being able to play Piano Sonata No. 14 (aka Quasi una fantasia or Moonlight Sonata) by Beethoven. To make it even more stressful, december 8 has been set as tentative date where I will perform the piece in public, a bet I made with my father in law. Place to be is a small church in Zevergem, Belgium, which has great acoustics.
Update 30/09/2019: switched back to a Drupal theme
Last year I spent a lot of evenings writing a script for a play I had in mind. And finally it's there, the first production is coming the first weekend of december. You are all invited! If you don't understand dutch, make your own story while watching, who knows we come up with an idea for another play :) More information and tickets reservation are available on okermaan.be
