Music:Linked - experimental project using JamLink (in Dutch)

Music:Linked is a cooperation between the University of Twente, ArtEZ Conservatory and Pop Academy, several other partners from Enschede, The Netherlands and the electro-pop band Stefany June (

But she never alluded, even in the most distant manner, to Mrs. Van Brandt; and not a word dropped from her lips which implied, directly or indirectly, that I had pained or disappointed her. I could only conclude that she had something important to say in relation to herself or to me and that for reasons of her own she unwillingly abstained from giving expression to it at that time. Reverting to our ordinary topics of conversation, we touched on the subject (always interesting to my mother) of my visit to Shetland. Speaking of this, we naturally spoke also of Miss Dunross. Here, again, when I least expected it, there was another surprise in store for me. “You were talking the other day,” said my mother, “of th
