I just stumbled over the recording of a very nice jam session I did with a former colleague from Norway during a visit he paid in 2011. The recording was done purely electronically using just an electronic drum kit, a MIDI controller and a laptop for recording and providing synthesis of sounds for the keyboards. Unfortunately, we only recorded one of these sessions… Anyway, here is the masterpiece:
Last night, we’ve been out to the Südstraßenfestival in Aachen. After some beers there, we went on to the Kiste, where we met up with some other people.
During a random encounter at the bar, I learned that Aachen misses a music scene. Having said this myself quite often (about Germany in general, that is), I was tempted to agree. But not this time! I rather told the lady that we actually do have a band and a rehearsal room in the basement of our house. In almost no time, we, she, her going-to-be-husband, and a friend of them decided to come with us for a late night jam session. So, off we went for some funky noise ’til half past five! Yay!
