Dear friend of de muziekdoos
The first 'tmuziekdooscollectief meeting was a success, there was music, brainstorming, wine...
onboard were Frank, Jef, Jan, Inneke23, Stafke, Wim and Karo, Hans and Lieve. also a quick cameo by Etienne
Thanks to all for showing up!
This is what we came up with after several bottles of wine and lots of gracious sounds:
The general idea
Keep the muziekdoos spirit alive – a place where there are instruments,
amps, where everyone can come and play/jam/rehearse/experiment and
maybe most importantly, meet likeminded people.
• Convince people of
the importance of this muziekdoos-spirit if we want to keep real honest
music alive. A place-to-be for musicians, poëts and other creative
minds and friends. Cross pollination at its best.
will be used to promote our ideas, announce upcoming events, find
contacts and supporters, post pictures, movies, art, poetry, etc
mobile acoustic setup is a temporary solution to keep this spirit
alive. This setup could move to different locations and ideally,
Etienne could be there too to play his wonderful tunes, serve the
drinks and give usefull/useless comments on the live music : ) If the
weather is fine, this location can be outdoors (we allready baptised
the boarders of the scheldt at the sint-michielsstraat)
larger events (mini festivals) on different locations where bands can
perform and a free podium is available. Get festival promotors/sponsors
• Make a presentation that clearly outlines our plan and try to involve the culture department of Antwerp.
• Search a VZW that wants to be involved in organising events for us. (Creating a VZW ourselves is not a good plan).
• We also will continue to collect money with the mobiele muziekdoos to help Etienne to pay the state.
This about rounds up what was discussed and what 'tmuziekdooscollectief stands for.
