Anna Camille : On Soundcloud . My upto date Profile

Ana Camille 001

Welcome to “Anna Camille Synthpaintann”

Playing piano.. and many a instrument that blows.. flutety tutes.and the bang ones too since knee high tall
Being . 4 decades . plus.. . have given me quite a while to do some musical explorations. And being of enquiring mind .. many a route has been tinkered with. It all began.. with..
Age 10 and a 1/3rd, I attended Trinity College of Music London W.1 for audition.. seeking a Borough Council London Grant “Junior Exhibitioner Award”.This lead to to Saturday attendance at Trinity for weekly piano and flute ,music theory classes and chance to audition and perform in the college orchestra.
At school at 17 my academic music teacher was a graduate King´s College Cambridge Choral scholar with a passion for all things choral which he infectiously passed onto me.
For music higher education Dartington College of Arts Devon gave me a place to continue studies which turned out to be a tale of diversification.

In depth study of Baroque harpsichord,.. and other side lines, Balinese Suling with Gamelan, and again more intensive with the Japanese Shakuhachi flute, 4 years apprenticeship with leading UK residence Japanese Artist . Yoshikazu Iwamoto.
Saying that first passions have never died.. particularly piano..Beethoven . his sonatas.

and then I got to thinking that maybe I really wanted to put my music more out there.. to throw introspection away.. . There’s boxes of old cassettes .. homemade recording dating back 10-15 years.. and my two sons.. one, Solomon Walter Kelly
Initially I had a casette player, old bang olsen.. trying to capture the live.. and lost archaic files of orchestrated rants on an older version of Cubase. Now a hand held Roland Edirol R-09HR. 24 BIT.
My heros are an assortment of the alive and dead.. the famous to the obscure , friends to complete strangers, Bob Dylan , Beethoven, .Santana, Satie, Caetano Veloso, Astor Piazolla, the pianist Ruben Gonzalez, , The Four Tops, Aretha Franklin, Sophie Mutter, Elton John , Led Zeppelin, Glen Gould, Briano Eno, Keith Jarret, Debussy, George Harrison, The Electric Light Orchestra, JS Bach, Herbie Hancock. the pianist Valentina Lisitsa, . Ravi Shankar,
Shostakovich, Rachmaninov, Tubby Hayes, Prince, Tchaikovsky. (. to be continued..)

I own a acoustic New York upright piano built in New York at the end of the 19 century, Roland synth, RD600 stand semi flight case , a Roland K 100w keyboard amp , a shure mike,condenser for vocals, a guild acoustic , assortment of folk flutes… and other tings like a professional tambourine .. and err my new Roland Edirol R-09HR,

Before that I was esconced on the edge of Cornwall .. ( South Devon)..England and before that as a kid in the throes of London’s myriad complexions and floating about the whole of it.. a child hood spotted with decampments to Wales and Scotland.
I am connected on skype phone and online.. I use linkedin . From where I live I make music, paint and take photographs.
Reverbnation, Sound Cloud , My Space,

Online I search out niches for all my musical and artistic output.

Since May 2008 I have been living here in Portugal.

Your interest, support and encouragement is greatly appreciated. Thank you,

Anna Camille

The day  after the general election the House of Commons library released a flood of papers which had been held up because of  purdah rules until after the result was known.

One of the most revealing papers was one on Banking Executives’ Renumeration in the UK. It drew on two sources – Britain’s submission  ( required by EU rules ) to the European Banking Authority and British sources such as company reports and details from the banks themselves about long term incentives for senior executives.

The facts revealed in the annexes to this report confirm what a lot of people have suspected but have not always been able to prove. There is-a widening gulf between the top and the bottom that has been going on during the fiercest period of austerity which has seen real…

Brexit for Brits in Portugal

Algarve Blog

The triggering of Article 50 on the 29th March is destined to be an historic day for both Britain and Europe. But what is it going to mean for Brits living in Portugal – or even for Brits wanting to travel and holiday here?

We attended an information evening held here in the Algarve hosted by the British Ambassador to Portugal, Kirsty Hayes, to try to find out some answers. The talk was one of a series hosted by the British Embassy in Portugal, ably assisted by their staff, including our own Vice Consul, Clive Jewell, who is based in the Consulate building here in Portimão:

In fairness to the Ambassador, there were obviously going to be a lot of areas of uncertainty, and questions which at this time she would not be able to answer fully; the triggering of Article 50 is going to be the starting point for a…
