V11 plan - project - Suzie Hagens 
At the pitch speed dating day, I collected some secrets with this little box:
These were the secrets:
For the event at V11 I was planning to collect more secrets and in the end of the day do a live improvisation wherein I played keys and sang about those secrets. Unfortunately I had to stay home due to corona. But!
What I did instead was:
I made a song in one day wherein I used the answers I already collected last time at V11. 




 
I'm not that clever
Love is pain
Ik ben een meeloper - I am a follower
what can I share. I miss singing.
I'm not a human actually. I'm an alien from outer space.
I really enjoy the feeling of loss, because it keeps me from connecting.
This is the song I wrote, called 'Alien' 

I’ll follow you

Into the dark

I’ll follow you

For far too long

 

I feel like an alien 

I feel like an alien

 

Who’s not connected 

To the truth

Who won’t believe 

It does have anything

To do with you

 

I feel like an alien 

 

Who’s not connected 

To the truth

Who won’t believe 

It does have anything

To do with you

 

I am not that clever 

I hold on 

To the pain

 

I’ll follow you

Into the dark

I’ll follow you 

For far too long



It's of course different, doing it at home or doing it live. But I had a lot of fun. It felt kind of special to create a song out of other peoples 'secrets', even if they weren't even very elaborate. It was really inspiring. I definitely want to continue this and experiment more, also in how to create a safe space to receive more detailed personal stories and secrets that I can transform into music.
