I spend Saturday on the code for loonspace. I had
somehow lost the C code for Implements and Loonspace,
and it just didn't work out to send the old marked
scores used by others. It was harder than I predicted
and I didn't finish.
Sunday I went to Mabire Forest, less than 2 hours
away, and recorded more birdsong on a nice forest
walk. I had roasted chicken on a stick at the nearby
village, and entertained the children and myself at
the stands there by taking pictures of the kids and
then showing what I'd photographed to them. I was
also invited in to one of the shops, and talked with
the women in side. It was dark, but there was a TV
and saloon hairdryer inside. I was really tired after

May 2-6 I had LOTS of meetings with various people
and groups about potential collaborations, and
continued teaching the Stawa U course for an hour or
hour and a half each evening. Since here I've met
with, sometimes more than once, House of Talent,
Mikael from Uganda Heritage Roots (Makarere),
Livingstone from Talented Entertainers, an Aids
action group Reach Out, people at Art for Social Change
school, and others. It has been busy
enough that I've had little time to work on sound!
I've usually enjoyed these meetings as they are
windows into different worlds, and Ugandans are
generally so kind, unpretentious and serious about
what they are doing, in a relaxed way. The meeting
Kalungi, a performer and teacher, is going to result
in a collaborative piece.
I checked on my dresses I'd ordered to be handmade
at African Queen, 2 blocks away, and they were in
progress, and looking very good.
I also had the idea to do an installation of the nature sounds for
TATS here in the lobby, and we are planning for it.
