this is the mail i have sent to my contacts in berlin:
now i feel prepared to leave the streets slowly, and take my music where it belongs to. i knocked TED’s door, and they opened side to side. not even a question. all means at my disposal. i want to thank them! and also thank all of you who approached these past years to buy a cd, ask for info or just to say a few good words. thank you so much.
i would also like to un-thank many of the bars i went to play this time in berlin. they received me almost always as an intruder, a foreign. they offer no technical resources, no incomings, but counted times i have heard the words “thank you”. special un-thanks to mark from sowieso, i premiered there my ecce cello show, and he made me feel insecure, weak and even miserable. but i did survive.
i am aware that TED is an elitist organization, that promotes optimistic approaches to soft-capitalism. but i swear i have never had such a liberty of speech. and sometimes it’s nice dancing with wolves. specially when you put the music!!
