Neal Morse in ZoetermeerΒΆ

Tags: faith

Wow, great progressive rock concert by Neal Morse last night in Zoetermeer. For a quick impression (of the type of music and of Neal Morse) I'd look at the youtube trailer of the new dvd . A couple of comments:

  • Man, it looked like a plone conference. At least 3, possibly 4 Apple laptops on stage. And one behind the mixer table. Gotta give Apple credit for having a translucent white apple on the back side (and thus the audience-facing side) of the display :-)

  • I got an email from a friend asking "what have you done to end up in the credits of the last CD?". I thought he was joking, but my name's really in there. Two photos were used in the special edition CD's booklet. That's the benefit you get from putting photos on flickr.com with a creative commonse attribution license .
  • Elisa Krijgsman was last night's guitarist. Some simple chords on an accoustic guitar is all I manage. But I got asked by the pianist to help him with a youth service in church tonight. And two of the songs we'll sing are written by... Elisa Krijgsman. I like coincidences :-)
  • I watched the "making of the DVD" section of the last live DVD. I was struck with the way Neal talks about his faith, practices his faith, lives his faith. It got me thinking. I take my faith seriously, but there's whole levels of seriousness I haven't taken yet. Especially time-wise, I've got to get more consistent.

Anyway, great concert!
