Simple Hi-MD Recording Guide

Most of you guys would be wondering what’s with the picture consisting of a Creative microphone, 2 74mins MiniDiscs, a Hi-MD RH10 and a manual written in Japanese.

I have been experimenting on the likes of audio recording (field recording?). It really excited me when the idea of using my MD to record came into my mind. However, I had absolutely no idea on how to activate it’s recording function :/

Passion – Eminence Concert

It has probably been a long time since I’ve been to a concert, or one that would interest me. The concert entitled ‘Passion’ by Eminence was awesome. The aura and emotions that surrounded the musicians and flowed through the concert hall seemed endless. I felt captured in their web of music. I was there with my friend, Chong. We met up

Familiar Game and Anime soundtracks was played and 2 classical pieces were snuck in as well. I’ll bring up scans of the booklet in a while. The orchestra’s vision is to ‘inject something bold, dynamic and fresh into classical music’ and of which, to break the barriers between the audience and the musicians, and to revive orchestra in today’s society; particularly amongst youth.

The concert also featured music from games including Chrono Cross, Xenosaga, Super Mario Bros etc. Anime pieces selected come from Laputa: Castle in the sky ,Haibane Renmei, Tsubasa Chronicle and .hack//Liminality.

Now, the instruments and their people playing it. Ayako Ishikawa (she’s really beautiful) and Hiroaki Yura (the founder of Eminence) on the violin. Natalia Raspopova (She’s plays the piano really really well!) on the piano, Joshua Hill on percussion and Zane Banks (He’s only 20!) on the guitar. Yasunori Mitsuda as the special guest of honor playing the Irish Bouzouki <Link>. It was also Mr Yasunori Mitsuda’s first time in Singapore. He said that he had always wanted to take a look at the Merlion :)

I’ll be going for this one. Probably get the 2nd best seats, since you’ll be too near to the stage if you get the first.

I hope they play Reminiscence from Chrono Cross :)
