Waking up to a sad news this morning and I've got the blues I don't usually have on a Monday. I feel so different and uneasy. So we decided on Bak Kut Teh which sounds delicious and tempting but unfortunately the shop were closed so we ended up eating Tenom wet noodle & honey chicken wings at Damai area instead.
After dinner, it was back to the studio timeee!
But no, no it's not what you think it is.
Hours & hours , and it was 'teapresso' midnight to end with.
Last night I saw 'Karrot gold' tweet's asking who has a blog & I gave him a quick response. He shared me this. Met him in person during the last #TwtUpKK event by the way. Made this for his girl friend who is currently away in the US for her birthday.
Isn't this like the most sweetest thing a boyfriend could do?
I might not know you in person Erin, but I know about
how special & meaningful you are to Karrot. You both are perfect for each other!
And your success as a young lady inspired me a lot
Spend the Sunday afternoon attending my uncle's wedding reception. It was also a day of....
Impromptu visit & porridge (well, this time someone got me to try ze' beef!) it was GOOD by the way like 'Ahmagad!' and gossip session. Well not exactly gossip, but it was more like a music talk, lepak time yeah...Heehee ;) We waited for like half an hour just for dinner but it was all worth it. And after those hot sweats while finishing my meal, I got rewarded to see Sabahan band, the Frontman Company up at the studio. A friend of mine, JayJay was also there. While the guys were jamming, I got to peek on how mixing works. Damn cool for someone like me who know's nothing. Hey :p
Straight from the night, Audio Technica, caps & Nike shoes influence playing in my mind. Oh, so tempting! And you know what? DangBandangs' song 'We don't care no more' is currently stuck in my head & I can't stop singing. Someone is going to dream about the band. I bet.
At first I hesitate. But for some reason, I was eager to learn a thing or two. The non musically talented in playing any music instrument does not stopped me. (Coming that from me, bet you long-time reader of mine have read that a thousand times.) Knowledge is power, it is everlasting. I took the chance and give it a go. And so, people say, why put it to waste, it's free anyways.
I never thought I would find the importance of audio and sounds that much till that day. Screw that ignorant side of me. I am not quite into that technical things, I admit. But it interest me that even if you do your own home recording, you can't compare the great quality of a studio recording. With good pair of ears to hear, you could actually the difference in between. It maybe suitable for your very first demo & while you're trying to listen how you sound like but I still think it's a no-no for me. Let the experts do their magic for us, shall we?
Few hours were well spent with bits of details and specifications about what kind of suitable microphones and tools to get Audio Technica has to offer. I was eyeing on a particular one already as the session was going on. If only budget permits.That very first session talk was given by our very own awesome Malaysian talent, JD from the band PopShuvit. He is also a Studio Manager of 21:05 Productions. I was stoked to meet him for the very first time. I was left speechless. *blushes* Michael from The Drum Planet gave us some sharing more towards drumming. That strong pair of hands and legs hitting that drum kit, entertained us with 'Sayang Kinabalu' song. I heard his drums on CD's before but never on 'live'. So it was awesome! The last session was talking about 'home recording'. Done by my friend, Chris Pereira, it was one short & quick sharing! He got it all covered we need to know none the less.
Great day for a new learning experience.
Thank you Chris for asking me to join this!
I had fun and ahem, 'that introduction'.
Now I am more aware how music works. ;)
