The day before the official release of Drawing Lines (1989) I’m at home, spending the late evening burning 70 CD-Rs with music that my pupils have made. They’re aged 10-11 and we have been working for seven weeks, composing, recording, mixing and everything. There’s so much talent out there, that just needs to be discovered. That’s what I do (discover it), but I have no time to engage in anything beyond my work, my family and my own music. So I see all these talented kids, but can’t do anything else than to try to inspire them to dream big and become experts themselves.
Tomorrow is the big day for me. There’s nothing exciting happening, really, but I’ll probably try to send out a few messages and mails to friends and make the album available on my website. A digital release is not yet planned, but I’m trying to figure out a way to arrange it. Right now it seems that it will cost me more to create and release the album than I can dream of getting back. It’s worth it, though.
