Last night I did my first ever solo guitar gig, a very casual affair at Pola’s latest exhibition opening at WerkStadt Berlin. It was the first time I’ve performed a solo set of my own music, and the first time I’ve done an entirely musical performance for over ten years.
I did two sets of fours songs. I thought I videoed both, but it seems only the second remained on my camera by the end of the night.
This is the first song of the second set, called Out Of My Mind, written in 2003.
I made sure the performance was low key, telling people to continue chatting while I play. Judging by audience reaction and comments afterward, the sets were quite successful. I hope to do more musical performances in Berlin in the future.
