Anouschka's impressions

Wednesday night, in the middle of celebrating my new job, I got a phone call from Filip : “would I like to perform on Sleuterrock, 2 days later?” In January, we had sent an awful demo to the Sleuterrock guys and as we were not selected, I had totally forgotten about it, until Wednesday night, that is… As I had already planned something on Thursday night, we would only be able to rehearse on Friday night and Saturday morning, which freaked me out, I have to admit. And what freaked me out even more, was Filip’s statement, that we would play that new song, too (i.e. I had written a text the week before and we’d just agreed on which song I would sing it) … So Friday night we rehearsed this new song so much that I woke up in the morning singing the lyrics….

 

We had to perform at 4.35 p.m. but when we arrived at 3.30 p.m., we heard they were running a little late. No problem, because not all of our friends had arrived yet. In fact, it actually was a bit of a problem to me, as I was so nervous I thought I would faint. At 5.10 p.m. we started sound checking and it turned out that one of the cables did not work. Some minutes later they found a solution, after which we could finally start. Because of this technical problem we lost 5 minutes, which pissed me off as it meant we had to skip one song. Filip was a bit confused about this and made some mistakes in the last song, but if I hadn't made a face, no one would have noticed… sorry Filip !!!!

 

Even if we didn’t make it into the top 3, I was really pleased: it was our first time and I think we did quite well. I was also very happy to hear that a lot of people liked it and I was even more happy that our friends had listened very carefully and could point out what our weaknesses were.  We’ll surely work at it !!!

 

So, I hope we will get the chance to perform a lot more as it is the best way to learn and, of course, because it is such an amazing experience to me. … making music is the most wonderful thing there is!!!
