I won the condor de plata award

on saturday I played with francisco bochaton in rosario. I preferred the audience's heat in santa fe, although I always love to play in rosario. my jaguar gave me a hard time, having to adjust the bridges saddles' screws every few songs due to buzzing, this was possibly due to extreme temperature changes. the guitar is going to mr de castro for adjustment this week.

the venue: bar berlin



the band in the dressing room



the emergency exit by the dressing room... scary






some signs in rosario are not respected:





sunday: back to buenos aires on a bus

monday: recordings with maxi trusso and alejandro teran at concreto. this record will be stunning.

in the evening I went to the "condor de plata" ceremony at canal 7. lots of celebrities and stars, and film directors, actor, critics... I was nominated for "best music" for the music for teresa costantini's film "el amor y la ciudad", and to my surprise...I won the prize!

I didn't suspect they would give me the prize so I didn't even think of a speech...so I just said I share this prize with matias mango and fernando samalea, whith whom I worked together on this project. I was given a very nice little silver statue...



here's a photo of all the winners. lucia puenzo's XXY won the "best movie", best book and best female actress. my piece " theme for el rayo rubio" is featured in the film

tuesday: guitar lessons

wednesday: rehearsal with francisco and 2 movies at ciudad universitaria with matias

here's the schedule of filmoteca at canal 7 tv for this week:


---------------------------------------

FILMOTECA
Temas de Cine
Un programa de Fernando Martín Peña y Fabio Manes

SEMANA DE DRAMAS URBANOS
del 22 al 26 de Septiembre

Lunes a viernes 0:30 hs.

FILMOTECA, programa cosmopolita, en un alarde de originalidad y buen gusto, dedica la semana esta vez no a un director, no a un intérprete, no a un género, sino a un tema: La Ciudad. Y así programa una serie de películas que podrían catalogarse un poco arbitrariamente como DRAMAS URBANOS.
Una semana de films donde la ciudad es protagonista, donde la urbe vibra, circula y respira como un ser vivo y se convierte en el escenario de las miserias, las ilusiones y los fracasos de sus pequeños y solitarios habitantes...


Se exhibirán completos:

El lunes: “Berlín, Sinfonía de una Gran Ciudad” (1927) de Walter Ruttmann y “Buenos Aires” (1958) de David José Kohon
El martes: “Así es la Vida” (1930) de Carl Junghans, con Vera Baranovskya y “Überfall” (1928) de Ernö Metzner
El miércoles: “La Última Carcajada” (1924) de F. W. Murnau, con Emil Jannings
El jueves: “Soledad” (1928) de Pal Fejös y “Ménilmontant” (1928) de Dimitri Kirzanoff, con Nadia Sibirskaïa
El viernes: “Amanecer” (1927) de F. W. Murnau, con GeorgeO’Brien y Janet Gaynor

Musicalización en Vivo a cargo de FERNANDO KABUSACKI y MATIAS MANGO

Fernando, congrats on your award! Regarding your buzzing problems on the Jaguar, I have a Jazzmaster which is prone to buzzing, as well. I solved the problem at the suggestion of my guitar tech by installing a Buzz Stop - http://www.northcoastmusic.com/buzzstop/. There's no drilling or alteration to your guitar. What it does is put more and constant tension on the strings down on the bridge, eliminating the buzz and improving sustain. I paid about $40 US and the buzz problem went away! Might be worth checking out.
