Erik Hubendick

Erik Hubendick erik_4
I was at Malmens Konditori yesterday afternoon. Enjoying coffee and a chat with my friend Jim when I suddenly noticed a guitar, seconds later a guy emerged from a car with the instrument in question. When he walked past our table I asked him if he was going to play something for us. What do you want to hear was his response. What's on the repertoire I asked. I play classical music answered Erik Hubendick. I then asked if he played professionally, but that he didn't do, he works as a bus driver. Turns out Erik had just bought the guitar at Blocket for 1000SEK. He told me that as he fine tuned it. When that was done we took a few photos and then he played a few classical tunes, including Für Elise by Beethoven. I then asked if he used to perform, he didn't, but when I told him about three possible gigs here in Handen he seemed very interested, so I will now set Erik in contact with Gunnar Borg who arranges live music both at the Cultural Centre and at Malmens Konditori and I will try to hook him up with Marcus Sohl for a chance to play in the Eskils church situated around the corner from where we were shooting the portrait. If it all happens I guess I could call myself musical manager and earn at least ten percent from Erik's future gigs!

Yes, manager! Schysst av dig att tipsa om det kontaktnät du har och förhoppningsvis ger det dig ytterligare lite plus på karma-kontot.

Två trevliga bilder där både skärpa och oskärpa är toppen. Din rutin på porträtt i kombination med en utrustning som levererar ger ett mycket bra slutresultat. Kul att se!

Contacts make all the difference. And such beautiful eyes.

How many euros is that?

I love this young man's eyes...two little clean, clear lakes...

Next time you see him, please ask him if he ever heard of my fellow countryman Agustin Barrios alias "Mangore."

¡Toda clase de exitos para el joven artista y su promotor!
