2020 is already in full swing. And Beat Love Oracle and swing are like two peas in a pod, no?
So I decided to devote the coming six months entirely to the composing of new material for the band. By the way, BLO’ll get several times this year the opportunity to show their skills in small scale venues in Flanders. (see www.beatloveoracle.be for the dates).
Already one new piece is ready (‘Dangerous liquids’), and I’ve just revised four pieces rather extensively.
I excised the ‘main theme’ of ‘Too early, Bird!’ and devised a new one which might work better when using this piece to start a concert with.
And I’m very happy I managed to find a solution to get Stijn (Deldaele’s) slapping thumbs back in action on stage with the revised ‘Just thumb luck’. In this piece there was a problem with the middle part, and by adding a new drum part, and alleviating some of the maybe too intricate rhythmic sections, we might now have a piece which might just blow away the audience(s). Hope we’ll get many likes 🙂
‘These are not downbeats’ got a extensive tape introduction, ‘Don’t bump you head against the cloud’ a shorter one. All these revisions will be tested in the upcoming concerts in March.
And now it’s time to get involved with the second piece of the new batch. See you later!
