Up at 7:30 – Anne off to work for half a day then back on holiday...

Spent (or wasted) some considerable time reorganising the CD collection...

The first CD of 2013 arrived in the post – The Alvaret Ensemble’s eponymous debut 2CD set...

Superb improvised music recorded in a Berlin church – as featured over on SidSmith’s blog in his 52nd episode of “Podcasts from the Yellow Room” – to which I happened to be listening as the disc popped through the letter box...

On Anne’s return, we watched the Audrey Tatou film “God is Great and I’m Not”...

It was ok but not great...

Thereafter some considerable time spent investigating the music available on The Alvaret Ensemble’s label, Denovali and downloaded everything that was on offer for free...

Noted they are having a festival of sorts in London in late April and Berlin in early April...

The genesis of a thought to possibly attend...

Thought given too to a possible American trip...

To bed well past midnight having spent most of the day listening to weird electronic music – which is no bad thing...

Highlight of the Day : New discoveries...
