Studio Playlist 2010 #30: Wouter Mijland

Dear Ron,
I am sorry I am a bit late with my reply.
2010 was a turbulent year, both in a negative as in a positive sense.
There was a great wedding party of an old friend and the best bycicle ride ever on the Veluwe in spring weather, a large museum bought a sculpture from me, I received some nice commands for art works, got a free wooden sailing boat and discovered the best iron wreck yard ever on an island in Southern Norway, absolved some nice forest management jobs from which one in the jungle of Suriname, met some great indigenous South American and Maroon people in the bush and had a lot of fun making art in my work-shed in Dresden with my collegues there.
On the other hand, the most inspiring, pleasant, vivid and funny person I have ever met stopped our relationship last summer, which also turned me homeless (home is a feeling for me) in just a few minutes. Furthermore, I got robbed violently in Suriname, lost all I had with me, stepped in a large nest of jungle wasps, a parasite decided to drill a hole in my foot, my foot got infected after I had to cut the thing out, I developed an allergic reaction to the antibiotics (lost half of my skin surface) from which I am recovering right now. Just in time to be healthy and 100% for my upcoming expedition to the South Eastern part of Cameroon :) Hopefully just in time to make new work in February since I will have a small show in Dresden end of that month.
Vittu, saatana perkele, we must go on..

Some music I listened to during last year:
1. Motorpsycho-Vortex Surfer

(it is not easy to surf the vortex)
2. Grauzone-Eisbaer

(Eisbaeren muessen nie weinen)
3. Nouvelle Vague-Eisbaer

(the "Linda version")
4. Bonny Prince Billy-Cursed Sleep

(how it was like for months)
5. Barrington Levy-Under Mi Sensi

(shaking it late at night in the work-shed, working it away)
6. JJ Cale-Sensitive Kind

(song about my skin)
7. J J Cale-Like You Used To
8. Astrud Gilberto-Aqua de Beber

(great lyrics, translation to be found on the web)
9. Marju Kuut - Öö ja päev

(going out of my head)
10.Baka people jamming in the forest

(hope I'll meet them soon)
