[music:  Strauss – Also Sprach Zarathustra]

I was in Lausanne a few weeks ago.

Lausanne View from Cathedral

Sitting down few minutes at the Lausanne Cathedral, I noticed someone working on the organ console. As he made his way up the stairs, I motioned to him and asked him if I could see the organ. I was in luck, he was an American from CB Fisk working on the 10 year maintenance of the organ.

So I snapped a few pictures 🙂

[music: String Quartet No. 3 in B flat Major – Brahms]

This year, I had the pleasure of discovering the website gwarlingo, Claus’ group of Brussels Photographers, the violin of Erica Jang, the photography of Delna, the drawings of Jean Cocteau. I’ve met drawers, dancers, performers, painters, teachers, musicians, writers, designers, organizers, and photographers. Many have chosen this path early life, some are amateurs, and a few have decided to leave their past lives and embark on a new path. They are all inspiring.

Here are some photos from a modern classical music competition I attended in Antwerp with my good friend Erica (the violinist). Most pictures are from before the performance, practice and preparation, a part of the concert most of us don’t normally see.

[music: October – U2]

“October
And the trees are stripped bare
Of all they wear
What do I care

October
And Kingdoms rise
And Kingdoms fall
But you go on…

…and on…”

October, U2, 1981
