The morning light in my house was muted. I imagined that Japanese Shoji paper windows would create this kind of light inside a house. (((not much on wikipedia, some modern examples here and here)))
My house looks like it’s been wrapped by Christo while my roof is getting repaired.
Since I first started using in-ear-monitors in 1994 I have always panned all instruments the way I saw them around me on the stage. For example, last year Stephen was half-right, Rusty was far right, Jon was half-left, Michael far-left and my guitar was in the middle. I don’t think that has worked so well for me with the trio and for the Summer tour I will try to pan the instruments the way I panned them on the album: Jon on the left, Michael on the right and my guitar in the center. That should be interesting. I wonder whether you will catch me looking to the right, to look at Michael, after I have been playing with closed eyes for a while. That would be funny!!

Not on this list: New Orleans, where OL + LN performed and Basia cancelled her show, most likely because we were so good that night that she felt intimidated… :-)
Thanks for revealing the answer to the mystery of your beautifully draped home.
Interesting to see your long Basia-Luna Negra tour.
