7 and 8 getting ready for the factory


last friday la national film chamber orchestra played at malba, nosferatu. good attendance.

last saturday we played trafico de almas and el hombre del tong. a misunderstanding regarding show times kept audience waiting for 10 minutes while the members of lnfco had coffee at a nearby bar.

sunday off, dinner with moni at peruvian restaurant and a visit to charly in the evening

I found pete townshend's diaries in the internet

monday office work, guitar practice on mg's guitar, changed strings on my les paul and in the evening on a van with charly and the strings trio to palito's studio near lujan for more recordings for his new cd. for me this record is taking shape as if magically.

I got back home tuesday at 14hs. lunch, sleep and a meeting with designer of the cover of kabusacki 7/8, my new cd. wonderful work!!!! a few touches and the cd is in the factory

busy weeks


amazing negativity in francisco's website's guestbook. fuera de ahi, cuervos negros! there's no relationship between francisco's wonderful music and some stupid comments in the web.

may 11 la national film chamber orchestra played german films in cordoba, with horacio sairafi as special guest. he played really well

may 12 played with francisco in la plata. again, stupidity in a few members of the audience harmed the performance. the van left us waiting in the street with all our gear between 4: and 6:15 am. pitiful. tough.

may 13 recordings with mono fontana for my new cd at home. sublime.

may 14 la national film chamber orchestra played dr jekyll and mr hyde at malba, with special guest lukas stadelmann. then I played with the suarez brothers, matias and lukas at thelonious, as part of the buenos aires jazz festival. full house. 2 sets, all improvised. recorded on hard disk by calu.

may 17 played with bochaton at kilt. terrible sound system, terrible venue. we were asked to stop the performance at 11hs due to neighbor's complaints with threats to close down the venue. this is buenos aires post cromagnon. scary.

may 18 vertigo colectivo at centro cultural borges. hot.

may 19 mixing and mastering the flower and the radio, my new double cd. exhausting.

today la national film chamber orchestra plays nosferatu at malba.

japanese visa already in my passport.

in cordoba


rehearsal with bochaton and christian. I tried facu´s fuzz factory. it´s wonderful! I definitely need one of this.

back home in time to say goodbye to shinkuro, who was flying back to osaka today.

guitar lessons in the afternoon.

gonzalo and jose came to show me the ideas for new website design. very good work.

at 22.30 matias and I took a bus to cordoba. comfortable seat, acceptable movie and acceptable food. new standards are set for fakir touring.

last night, when I thought the day was coming to an end, I went to pick up charly and drive to maria's home for more recordings. organizing stuff, defining a running order and record a few layers of vocals and guitars (acoustic and bass for ch, electric for me) over the whole sequence of songs. stunning stuff.

drove charly home and back homa at 10am for a few hours sleep

shinkuro will arrive soon
