Instrumental Play-Time

Ever been so tired that walking to the bathroom to brush your teeth seems like an impossible and exhausting task? You stay up, moaning about how tired you are for ages, longing for your bed, instead of just going to it… This is one of those nights. But I made it to bed in the end. Under the covers as we speak, thinking about what a lovely day I’ve had. It was a bit early to have to go in to LIPA at 11 am to video the auditions for Monica’s musical “Bucuresti”, after such an epic night of celebration of various things, but it was something I gladly did for Mon, and I enjoyed watching all the hopeful candidates sing their hearts out. Also, I enjoyed chatting with Steph, who served as the house piano player for the day, and we talked about her maybe doing some piano on some of my songs. I’ve also talked to Helen about trying to put some trumpet on a couple of songs, inspired by Unni Wilhelmsen’s amazing concert this summer. I love to experiment with different instruments. What comes to mind is the version of Sorry I’m Not Her (my first song) that I did in Oslo with Marie Klaapbakken on violin a couple of years ago. She was amazing, and knew what I wanted with hardly a word from me. It is such a privilege to be surrounded by all these great musicians, and now, they are everywhere. Great people, great talents, great fun. In the weeks to come, the plan is to put together a band and start booking rehearsal rooms once a week, and also to record some songs in our humble home, make detailed note material for the band and to get my Myspace representable. It’s time to get serious. I wanna get back on that stage!

On a different note, before I let my eyelids drop; what a party we threw last night! I am thrilled so many people stopped by and made it a great night. And the boys did a good job tidying the flat while I was at LIPA all day videoing Monica’s auditions. So far this has been a highly successful weekend, made even better by “Despicable Me” in 3D with 3 Lovely Liverpool Ladies tonight. I haven’t been all that impressed by 3D in the past, but this one was incredible from start to finish. Amazing film, and great company. Right now I cannot wait to fall asleep next to my Lovely. But not before we go through yet another exiting episode of Twin Peaks. The owls are not what they seem. ;-P

Have a great night people! I LOVE YOU! 😀
Lots of luuuuv,
Audrey in bed.
