Today we has nt been feeling too good
in tummy. Could be anything – swallow sea water from big waves, eat
wrong fod, drink wrong drink, eat something poisonous which could've
been cos we do sampling of things we don't know what they are in
supermarket Bintang and in supermarket Bintang you expect edible
things be next to each other but no – next to salt and herbs there
is poisonous seed thing called pangi which used in ketchcup but only
when it done something to – we got some but fortunately we didn eat
it. Also could be any other thing the fact is you cannot avoid to get
tummy wrong at some point.

Another example of things being next to
each other which not really go is when we saw today on way to Nikki
instrument maker, a stall selling mix your own perfumes with
motorbike oil, eye drops and battery acid (the last 2 are not true
actually) but oud be cos also they sell things like this is old
bottles used for something else before.

So we went to Nikki musica instrument
maker again and this time we got some of the people there who make
the insrtuments to come and play together with me playing the
accordion and Matt doing videoing. It was quite fun to play my
accordion and to hear people playing the djembes and other
percussion. we made a song which went ini adela grup, Nikki Bali band
which mean this is our band Nikki's Bali band I think.

So far this is what we been doing for
Andy musical instrument company
Matt – noticing things about the
instruments especially about how they work or how they are fixed
together or how the sound is produced
Anna – working out tunings – most
percussion is not tuned but some could be tuned to each other and
some are already randomly pitched but need tuning in more
Matt – making suggestions about how
the company can connect to surroundings here in Bali as he has worked
on projects in other countries where people are attempting creative
Both – ideas on individual
instruments – what can be improved about sound quality, design,
finishing, robustness etc
Both – ideas about how to present
instruments to schools/teachers/kids
Matt – making porridge
Anna – making eyes go funnyMatt - sorting the Bali matches into head to big, stalk too thin, no head, stalk bent, double-head, too short, shredded and then he 'assorted' them into sub-sets....

We are expecting to:
See a gamelan making place
See the people in a village where some
of Andy's instruments are made
Go snorkelling
See the kecak dance
See a temple which is on the beach
nearly in the sea can't remember what it is actually
Play music with some children
Post postcards
Buy more teabags
Do swimming
See a wayang coulit or shadow puppet

We have gone to bed early in case this
helps us feel better
