Playing Music To A Film

Last Saturday, I performed publically for the first time in a few years. I was the soundtrack for Erwin Olaf’s Waiting project where a lady waits for somebody who never comes. The music was written by Sebastiaan Roestenburg.

As an anxious performer, it was definitely a challenge to maintain composure for over 50 minutes.

It was the first time I had actually played with the film in it’s entirety.

In the end, I was around 1 minute off at the end (I played a bit faster than it was) but I improvised until I saw the film fade out and nobody noticed. Yay!

It was fun to be a performer for once!
