Tijdnood, echt!


De zolder is opgeruimd,  het vervelende verrassingsdoosje heb ik in de afvalemmer geknikkerd en de bak met plakband verzegeld.  Nu het wasgoed nog, de bodem van de mand is nog niet in zicht, maar de eerste dekens hangen al aan de waslijn. Vlug zet ik de machine weer aan en wil de trap beklimmen naar de eerste verdieping. De slaapkamers zijn aan de beurt. Maar eerst even mijn pc opstarten om mijn afwezigheid voor de komende maand aan te kondigen.

O nee, ook dat nog, Ingrid is aan het rondhuppelen, struikelen, dansen, springen, hobbelen en roeptoeteren. 'Steekwoorden, joepie, steekwoorden, eindelijk, steekwoorden, super, jubeldebubel dat wordt weer een feestmaand!'

Wat ellendig, ik pieker me suf hoe ik dit toch weer allemaal moet klaren. De steekwoordengruwel heeft de kop weer opgestoken, en ik zit echt, echt waar, tot ver boven mijn hoofd in tijdnood. Dat is nu eens geen standaardsmoesje. Was ik maar fotograaf. Die hebben het makkelijk. Even hun camera ergens op richten, desnoods op een verkeersbord, whatever, klik klik klik en klaar is Kees.  Maar wanneer die huppeltrut eenmaal in vorm is, laat ze niet meer los. Ik zie mijzelf al vastgepind worden in een nieuw vervolgverhaal.

Nee! Ik heb geen tijd! Ik moet aan mijn gezin denken, aan de huishouding, de was, de strijk, de vaat en aan kerstvieringen, uitjes met de familie. Eerst de grote schoonmaak afraffelen, de boom naar beneden, optuigen, kerstlantaarntjes door het hele huis hangen en dan zal ik eventueel  eentje, echt eentje maar schrijven...

Yoors Music Challenge - Cover Unfinished Sympathy - Massive Attack
#yoorsmusicchallenge #yoorsmusic #cover #pianomuziek #yoorsoriginalvideo  From day 1 when the Yoors Music was launched and the challenge was opened by an amazing cover of Unsomnia by Phil Rehm, I was hugely inspired by his video, the beat, the creativity and I played that song over and over again. It challenged me and I started the Yoors Music Challenge. My contributions are very different. From piano pop music, classical music, a few pop songs with vocals added for the first time. It's all very exciting, but I am so eager to see what you can get out of yourself in terms of creativity and I have no idea which way I want to go sometimes. I know that I am always quick to think and shoot in many directions, but I think that is also partly my enthusiasm, my eagerness to learn. Whoever told me today that I would be doing all this in the past two weeks, I would never have believed. I hadn't played for years and then about three months ago I started again with a song Aan de Amsterdamse grachten and from there I dared more and more and the pop songs came. But more happened. I dared to play my classical pieces again, but also to make my own improvisations on pop music. Carefully, I dared to cross another threshold by singing. But during the past two weeks, a longing remained in my streams that I would like to make a beat song one day. But how? I had no idea, until one morning I was listening to the song Unfinished Sympathy by Massive Attack. No, you shouldn't tinker with it Madeleine, that song is already so perfect by itself. But do I have to make a perfect song and why not challenge myself to see how far I can get with my own arrangement of it? Well then, let's make the beat first. Drums, bass mixed and then strings orchestra played in and then just freestyle piano. And then see what happens. That's not easy, it's a hell of a job to be honest, but oh so instructive and you have to do it a thousand times over. In the end, I almost succeeded for the first time. It's certainly not perfect yet, but hey, as an amateur, it's just great to get a musical taste of everything that goes on in my head that needs to come out. It reminded me of when you used to buy a single, you always had the original track and on the back often a musical version. That's what this has become a bit like. I hope you find it funny and enjoyable and it was totally out of my comfort zone, but a lot of fun and educational to do. Have fun listening! Love, Madeleine
