London A Cappella Revisited (1)
by Florian Städtler, Vocal Blog founder
My fellow blogger 1.0 Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once cleverly remarked: „If I had had more time, I would have written a shorter letter.“ An anti-rambling manifesto, cast in granite.
So for this blog post I have set myself the goal of keeping it very brief – LACF2013 in a nutshell. So here’s a different kind of „Vocal Blog on tour“ poetry meets math article.
A Cappella + Metropolis = LACF
LACF x 4 = rocket start
Start of the 21st century = Swingles 2.0
The Swingle Singers = LACF’s heart and soul
Soul Brother No. 1 = Alfredo „Fredo“ Austin
Tine + Line = ElectroEmotional Queens x (Hot + Cool)
Cool = London weather x understatement
Understatement = LACF was not exactly terrible
Terrible = London pubs closing time.
Time of my life = music + meeting + learning + exchange
The Exchange = party
Party animals = all Finnish people
People from all over the world = King’s Place foyer
Foyer concerts = vocal harmony and happiness
Happy maniac = Postyr’s Kristoffer
Christopher Diaz = Talk as talk can
Canned beer < bottled beer < draught beer
Beer from Britain = always an experiment
Experiments in Songwriting 2.0 = Postyr Project
Project 2013 = The Big Qs of A Cappella eBook
Booking agent for all of these groups = job of my dreams
Dream come true = King’s Singers + Swingle Singers
Single Singers = best community project ever
Everybody at LACF = open-minded, excited, friendly
Friends = Aca-family in the real world
World Champion of Hi-Heels (advanced level) = Clare Wheeler
Clare Wheeler = jazz + style + shoes + goosebumps
P.S. = I love you, London
London A Cappella Summer School = the future
Future = European festival network
Work = OMG, it’s almost Monday
Monday = 364 days until London A Cappella 2014!
I am a happy if slightly tired blogger today. And I’m about to miss my flight because I liked having breakfast with my dear friend Hans Cassa this morning. Follow Vocal Blog on tour via #VBontour or simply via my Twitter.
