By | June 6th, 2018|cinema, daily life, music, photography, technology|

It has only been 20 years since I found out about it, but it was good to finally see Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders. It was the closing night film of the German Film Festival and I absolutely loved it. I felt that it was so incredibly exhilarating to get a birds eye view [...]

A Sunday journey through music

By | June 3rd, 2018|music, professional|

There is a certain type of music that can have the effect of pouring effervescent soda over a fragile soul. Every album brings me a little closer to balance. It is a process of strengthening and soothing. My adventure started with electronic pop, disco and house. A lovely compilation from Eskimo Music. This feels like [...]

Emma Donovan and the Putbacks – Stonnington Jazz Festival

I think the thing that moved me most about last night's gig in Windsor as part of the Stonnington Jazz Festival was the fact that Emma, the lead singer of Emma Donovan and the Putbacks is such a rare, but fantastic success story.

I admit, there was some moments that I wished you were there. My favourite part though, was when each member of Maya’s band did their solo. Talented [...]

I wanted something big, and bold and cheerful to send you on your way this Saturday evening. Tonight I am navigating through a system of emotional landmines, it seems. So, I have landed on something before some of us were born. Stevie Wonder - Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing. My brother and I used [...]

battered soul – internal experience

By | May 8th, 2018|journal, music, professional, technology|

It is so nice to pour vodka soda and smooth electronica over my battered, aching soul. My job can be stressful sometimes and when I am firing on adrenaline for sometime, there is a come down from that. It leaves my soul in pieces, aching and tired and scattered all over. It is the sort [...]
