Still ft. EvenSanne

Another live performed video from EvenSanne, although a bit different than the previous one 'Wait', due to recent developments within this project. We are officially a quartet now, together with Itai Weissman on EWI and Jeroen Batterink on the drums. We performed 'Still' in the BlueNote of the CvA, Amsterdam on my final exam on June 8, and later created this videoclip with the recorded material.

This song 'Still' is an older one of mine. Wrote it exactly 3 summers ago, and have been developing and performing it with mostly EvenSanne, but also other projects. 
Within this song I noodle with different meanings of the word still, and tried to express that it's emotionally safe to be alone and not share your life with someone, but it can start to feel very empty after a while.


Safely at ease, no-one to please
I take myself, all A's to Z's
Traveling light
Without strong emotions to worry about
But still I doubt

My heart is mute, clean, yet polluted
Love was a drug, forbidden fruit
Traces remain
Of dangerous altitudes, breathtaking depths
Passionate grief
Where's the relief?
I should feel happy but

Still I search for one face in everyone
Stock-still I stand, though always I'm on the run
Hold still, hang on, this chase's only just begun
There are so many faces to come

And still I’m still when somebody drops your name
A still, non sparkling word that has lost it’s flame
But still somehow brings hope, which brings only pain

Safely at ease, no-one to please

Be inspired, be Gingered.

Wait ft. EvenSanne

This month I combined my 2 favorite projects; EvenSanne and Be Gingered. The result is a videoclip called ‘Wait’, a new composition by EvenSanne.

EvenSanne is a duo I formed together with Eran Har Even on guitar. We started playing about 3 years ago, classical guitar and natural voice, but trough time we grew together into a new direction with loopstations, effects and other instruments, as is presented in the movie. (for more information, see our website)

Based on a few strong ideas from Eran, we wrote and arranged this song together in a typical EvenSanne-way, using loop stations to make the music multi dimensional. When he brought these ideas to the rehearsal, he told me he wanted to call the song ‘wait’. And so, inspired by his story, I wrote the lyrics. They speak pretty much for themselves, but I started writing them from the idea of using the word ‘wait’ in different ways; ‘wait for me’, ’wait for the opportune moment’, ’wait a second’ etc. 


Mirrors only show reflections
Shadows only show what’s lacking
Slowly it begins to show that
I have taken you for granted
Wonder while you wander

Will you remember
All we could be?

Your absence when you leave
As present as a waiting game
Your presence when you leave
As absent as a wedding cake
For the opportune moment I will wait
‘Cause when you will return

Then suddenly it all becomes real
No hiding, feels exiting
Suddenly I kneel, and dive in..


Will you remember
All we could be?

Will you remember
I'll stay right here?



We filmed this live performance in an amazing place called Fenix. A huge wear house containing a dozen containers, where artists of all kinds are working day in day out, and every corner is stuffed with paintings, sculptures, curious creations and lots of working material. 

In the second picture time stands still. Wait, we do because the world is moving around us too fast..
