workshop presentation today

Quick one now, I’m on the way out the door. We’ll be presenting the instrument building workshop this afternoon and evening today, and it will be an open house all say tomorrow at the HKW in Berlin.

Monday morning I’m off back to Estonia to do another Neanderthal Electronics workshop. September I’m doing a TONEWHEELS workshop in Belfast, another one in October in Bulgaria, and another one in November in Kaliningrad (!!!). Finally, I’ve been accepted as a fellow at the KHM in Cologne to develop a new Tuned City project with students there for the ISEA 2010 taking place in Dortmund and surrounding areas.

The flipside of all this excitement is that I haven’t had any time to sort out the kinds of tax and health insurance crap needed to secure my next residence permit to stay in Germany. The appointment is in mid-September and I’m more than a little bit nervous. I suppose the alternative is moving back to the States and working at a truck stop in Texas, which is made all the more attractive when the nasally-voiced American girls from the debt-collection agencies ring up my German mobile asking when I’ll pay back the increasingly overblown amount of money I owe in student loans there. Sigh….
