Every year on the 21 of June (the day of the year with the most hours of daylight in the northern hemisphere as the good site says) the streets of Paris fill with free music, and it takes quite a while to the empty it back, so cars can pass.

This year we decided to help by taking some of it, so we headed to a Yemen Blues concert. 

Yeah-man à la moi

Below are some snapshots I took.
A short preview show a few days back

If you keep moving, the picture becomes blurry..

A drawing with two pencils, one by a two year old. one by a 47 year old
(but I was 46 at the time …)

Remind me.. drawing about music is like dancing about what ?!

Ah, yeah! architecture

Well, the architecture was quite amazing as well (UTube remembers…)

Hand is quicker than the eye.

But Rony Iwryn (Percussion) is quicker…


And for something quite different, (well, not that much, really, still Paris, music, drawing and me…)
One of the most impressive exhibitions I’ve been to last year, was an immense Anish Kapur’s installation called Leviathan at the grande-palais. (which becomes once a year a host to a grand-scale art project), 

Before the closing of the exhibit, I had the joy meeting my lovable Cousin at a Stockhausen Concert just at the foot of this shore-deserted whale, (in fact you can see my cousin, me and my sketchpad in this video on the 27th second if you use abitof imagination, Christ, is there ANYTHING that is not filmed these days???)

You dont expect me to play Stockhausen, do you…

I was expecting the show in the whale’s belly, but the outside was just fine!

Little red rugs on the floor to accommodate the delicate assed audience
(using the instant coffee Shir recommended me to bring as a first-aid watercolor)

Erasing some, but even this doesn’t capture the grandeur..

A no-punch one-liner


There was a great trumpet as well, but hey! you can’t have it all!
(where would you put it?)


Enjoy the music! 

Till nextime!
