Performance at the Schiphol airport

Hi Everyone!

Just a very quick post. While I was working at the aeroport Schiphol, I saw this piano.
I had nothing to do and I was in charge, so I played on the piano for a while.
I played a several composions by Chopin and Mozart.
Suddenly, a random guy came to me and said it was beautiful! That really made my day! ๐Ÿ™‚ and to top that off, before I left he hugged me. Wow! That just happened :p

I was happy that he was happy and very lovely!

Have you guys experienced something like this before?

Love,

Karin

EMA, Breaking Bad and Swizz Beatz

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick post.
The past few days were amazing for me!
As you guys know, the EMA Awards is this year hold in Amsterdam, the capitol of the Netherlands. The days before the show, there are a lot of events going on, like MTV voices. This event gives you an inside of MTV behind the scenes. Several people like the producers of MTV, VJ’s, actors and musicians are talking about how to achieve your goal, sneak preview about the shows of MTV, how to be a good presenter and how to become succesfull.
On Thursday I went to two readings. The first reading was by Steve Regan, the executive producer from MTV UK. He is the man behind ‘The Valleys’, ‘Geordie Shore’, and many many more.
He told us about how he comes up with an idea for a programma, how to be in this media industry and how he loves his job. Very sincere, lovely man who was really inspiring as well.

The second reading was more of a workshop. The photography gallery/museum ‘Foam’ in Amsterdam gave us a workshop: ‘Photo snapping’. How to get a good picture.
Well, I really like taking photos and love posting them as well on Instagram or Facebook. I know that the photos aren’t the best or the most artistic, but what I capture in the photos are always the things I really like. So, why not follow a workshop that helps me with taking good photos so I can make better photos to entertain you guys with.
The workshop was really interesting and it helped me to look to things in a very different perspective and taking photos differently, fron another angle.

On Friday I had one reading. This one was with the amazing and talented actor RJ Mitte from ‘Breaking Bad’. I have to admit… I never saw an episode of ‘Breaking Bad’, but after his talk about the show, about himself, it really maked me curious about the show. So, I’m going to watch all the series ๐Ÿ™‚
RJ Mitte was a really nice, shy guy who was so lovely. I really liked this guy, allthough I didn’t know him before.
RJ told us about the process of getting the role in the serie ‘Breaking Bad’, his live as an actor, learning process about this industry. I thought it was a really good and funny talk from him.
After his talk, I asked him if I may take a picture with him ๐Ÿ™‚ it took me a while, but I did it!

I’ll keep you updated.

Great album of Kings of Leon

A few weeks ago I heard that Kings of Leon was coming with a new album. As a fan of Kings of Leon, I had to but the new album.
I was really curious about the new songs on the album. So, I went on Youtube and listened to some of the new songs. I was immediately in love with the song ‘Wait for me’. Now I knew for sure, I have to buy the album!

Yesterday, I was shopping and passed by a cd shop. I asked them if they had ‘ Mechanical Bull ‘ by Kings of Leon and they had it! So I bought the album, went home, put it in the stereo and listened to the album whole night long.
The sound of the album isn’t that different from the previous albums. It’s just Kings of Leon. They doing what they can do best: make good music.
I wouldn’t say that this album is the best of them. I really like the 4th album: ‘Come around sundown’.

What do you guys think of the new album and Kings of Leon?

Music makes you lose control!

Hi everyone!

How you guys doing? As some of you might know, I play several music instruments such as piano and saxophone. I’m better in playing the piano than the saxophone I would say. ๐Ÿ˜‰
I really like classical music as well as pop music. I love to listen to One Republic, Kings of Leon, Macklemore, Lana del Rey, Imagine Dragons and Coldplay. You can say I love that indiepop music thing. I saw One Republic live once, and in March I’m going to another concert of them in Amsterdam. In October, Macklemore is performing twice in Amsterdam…wish I had the tickets for one of his concerts. And in November, Imagine Dragons are giving a concert in Amsterdam as well. They all love Amsterdam! ๐Ÿ™‚
If I got the time, I really want to go to so many concerts. And of course, I have to find someone to go with me. But you know, not everyone got the time and the money for that.

But, when it comes to playing the piano or the saxophone, I prefer playing classical music. It’s not always simple and that’s the whole point.

My favorite composers are Chopin, Beethoven, Lizst and Grieg. These composers are from the Romantic genre. I love that genre! Whenever I play music from the Romantic era, it just give me shivers. My favorite pieces are by Chopin. That guy knew what emotions were! Absolutely! I played a lot of his pieces, like the Nocturnes and the Preludes.

What type of music do you listen to? Do you prefer pop or classical music, and why?

Here’s some of my piano playing skills. It could be better. Hopefully you guys like it!

Love,

Karin

Nice to meet you!

Hallo iedereen!

Leuk dat je op mijn blog bent beland. Ik zal me even voorstellen. Mijn naam is Karin en in mijn dagelijks leven doe ik van alles. Naast slimmer worden op school en werken houd ik me bezig met piano spelen. Hier vind je een link van mijn meest recente video waarin ik het stuk Nocturne in Cis klein van Chopin speel. Dit doe ik al sinds mijn 10e levensjaar en ik zou echt niet weten wat ik zonder piano, muziek in het algemeen, moet doen. Daarnaast zul je me vaak vinden in de bioscoop. Ik ben een enorme film liefhebber. Het liefst een drama/romance film. Mijn lievelingsfilms zijn o.a: Le Fabuleux destin d’Amelie Poulain, Argo, Django Unchained, The Kids are allright, Forrest Gump, 500 days of Summer, The Reader, HappyThankYouMorePlease, Anna Karenina en alles met Leo DiCaprio. Als je me niet kan vinden in de bios, dan zit ik vast ergens koffie te drinken. Het liefst doe ik dat bij “Koffie bij Teun” in Breda of bij “The Coffee Company”. Onder het genot van een kopje latte macchiato met vrienden bijkletsen of een boek lezen. Ik geniet er altijd van om even aan niks te denken en uren in koffiehuisjes te zitten.

Als het even kan, ga ik graag op reis. Het liefst zou ik het hele jaar door willen reizen. Verschillende culturen zien, mensen leren kennen en verschillende keukens proeven. ( I love food! Behalve dat ik vegetariรซr ben, ben ik verder geen moeilijke eter. )
In mijn hele bestaan heb ik al veel van de wereld gezien. Toch zijn er nog landen die ik zo graag wil zien of nog een keer heen wil gaan. Hoog op mijn verlanglijstje staan: 1. Sydney, Australiรซ 2. Tokyo, Japan 3. New York, VS. Wie weet realiseer ik mijn droom wel om een van deze steden snel te bezoeken. ๐Ÿ™‚

Genoeg over mezelf.

Waarom ben ik deze blog begonnen? Ik ben deze blog begonnen omdat ik jullie mijn ervaringen, mijn belevenissen, mijn avonturen en mijn kennis over muziek/films/eten wil delen. Ik zal foto’s plaatsen, videos, jullie vragen beantwoorden en natuurlijk bloggen!

Hebben jullie nog vragen of tips voor mij, laat het me weten in de comment!

Liefs,

Karin
