2019 week 30

July 30, 2019

The heatwave continues. I discovered that the absolute best way to keep my apartment habitable is to pull down all the shutters completely. If I let the heat in once I’m basically screwed. The night temperature doesn’t go under 20 at the moment. If it is a windy day (like yesterday) I can create a

Returned after a few days in Austria. Very nice with fresh air, good food and pleasant people. I knew I was back in Hungary again at the petrol station just after the border.

New week and today UPC (Hungarian internet provider) is coming to install internet and cable-tv. I don’t watch tv really, but is was the best buy to sign up for a package of internet, tv and a land line. So far I’ve been lucky in that I was able to log in to an open

If everything works out properly I will move in Thursday this week. After that I will start the process of finding and trying out new routines. I have an amazing view from

Made a midi recording in Gestrument. Opened it in AudioShare and exported it to Notion. Then I started to clean it up. This will form the base for the theme of The Bishopric of Sikmam. There will be different variations on this theme included. Small interludes to orchestral variations. I’m ready to work with an

Made excellent progress concerning two processes. The first concerns my field recordings. I created a library in Logic which is called “The Bishopric of Sikmam – sandbox”. I move copies of my original recordings from my Field Recording Library to this sandbox. In there I have the entire spectrum of Logic Pro X at my

Caught a cold and been taking it a little bit easy the passed few days. Went for a walk to test my wings yesterday and made a good field recording. Looked at two apartments on Friday. But neither suited my needs so I turned them down. Decided to broaden my search to a larger part
