It's that time of year to look a bit back and a bit ahead. We had a good year of music, poetry and film. With The Alvaret Ensemble we played quite frequently, including some nice festivals and collaborating with Soli Brass. We actually played with pretty much everybody in 2013 we made albums with; Piiptsjilling, Gareth Davis, Kleefstra|Pruiksma|Kleefstra and Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra.
Our two film projects Sinne op 'e Wangen and DUIF were well received and the performances of DUIF on some Dutch fests was quite an experience. And there was the release of GAU by CMKK, for which we collaborated with Celer's Will Long and Machinefabriek's Rutger Zuydervelt on one of our favorite labels (Monotype).

So, what's up for 2014? First of all we will continue with Sinne op 'e Wangen and DUIF performances. Both projects will be released on dvd as well. We are working on some gigs by Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra and The Alvaret Ensemble in early Spring. Besides the dvd's there will be new releases by The Alvaret Ensemble and Piiptsjilling for shure, plus some additional stuff like the cd-edition of Machinefabriek's Stay Tuned, feat. Kleefstra Bros' Romke. So beware, and keep an eye on this blog. And keep your glory, gold and glitter!
