How many degrees of separation is that?
I don’t “travel in the past” that often. I am way more interested in what the future might bring. In what will be done, rather than what has been done. I’d rather spend time imagining what could happen tomorrow rather than spending time on writing my resume, let alone my biography. Yet, I enjoy reminiscing about a few events that come to mind when I think about what brought me to pursue a music career in New York City.
I was attending the Conservatory of Music of Geneva, in Switzerland. I was playing in bands. One of them performed in a Champagne bar outside the city. After a light strip tease, ladies would sit and chat with customers, as long as the customers treated the ladies to at least one glass of Champagne. The ladies were only allowed to drink Champagne. House rules. Their job was to get lots of glasses of Champagne ordered, if not consumed. Needless to say, the Champagne was on the expensive side. And not that good… I tasted it… once.
How many songs can you listen to… at the same time?
Strange question. Right? Few of us get that curious about music listening. We have our favorite songs lined up to play one after the other. Organizing a playlist is fun. You can definitely arrange a list to get you going, build up your energy, get you deeper into a mood you like, etc. But who ever listens to more than one song at the same time? Not just a couple, try at least four or five…
If you are part of the New York City music scene, you have heard of the Music Building, located on Eighth Avenue in Manhattan, between 38th and 39th street, in the Garment District. Twelve floors, over 50 rehearsal studios, and some recording studios.
