Wasim Arslan vocals, Roeland Drost accordeon + vocals and Maaike Peterse cello maakten dit in het moment lied op gedeeltes uit éen lied van Bram Vermeulen: Woorden. De tijd was te kort om de vele coupletten te vertalen. Het is er bij gebleven dat we beiden 2 coupletten zingen. In het Nederlands en Arabisch. Dit was onderdeel van de Dune-sessions eind januari 2017, waarbij 13 muzikanten in een pand in een lang weekend allemaal een lied inbrachten om met elkaar te herarrangeren en op te nemen. Dit is de ruwe luisterversie, opgenomen door Bart Lybeert & Pepijn Stutterheim te Den Haag. .'when you lock up 20 creative souls in one house for one weekend at the edge of a country, beautiful things might happen...A magical salto mortale in three days, here`s what it looks like!'....

January 2017 singer Julie Scott and her husband Peek Hijmans invited 13 musician friends and their partners to spend a weekend in their house in The Hague….A place of inspiration, set next to the beach and with lots of room to work together and create...

Inspired by the principles of Burning Man and the famous Transatlantic Sessions, the main theme was that of sharing, extreme gifting, without expecting anything in return … so everyone brought enough food and drinks for themselfs and to share, ego`s had to be dropped off at the Ego Depot upon entering the building….the idea was to create a small creative pressure cooker, without an audience

Every musician was asked in advance to share a song that they would love to play around with, they could work on it in small groups and re-arrange, record together….The music started pouring in, everthing, from classical, original compositions, pop, rock, to folkmusic….Berthold Brecht, Beatles, Perfect Circle & David Bowie to name but a few….

What happened next was mindblowing…it all really came together in a way no-one could have predicted. This eclectic group built campfires at night, ate like kings, drank like fish, shed some tears….roaring laughter could be heard from the corridors … new friendships were created and old ones revived…And the music, oh my god…how can i explain just how amazing the music was?

Luckily everything was recorded by Pepijn Stutterheim!

Roeland Drost The Hague, The Netherlands

I mix my classical roots with popmusic and write a lot for theatreplays. I improvise music landscapes as a pianoman at concerts and sometimes it even gets a song. I love to play the accordeon, Hammond, harmonium or acoustic guitar as well and sometimes use handdrum. For more info check my website www.roelanddrost.nl ... more
