I Ramble: 5 August 2016

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

Just a quick post. I picked up a book from the library called Music Business for Dummies. I have been dabbling in music lately. Just last night I recorded my vocals demo for my band’s first original song. Yay! Hahaha! A critiqued it and he appreciates the effort I put in. Let me know if you wanna hear it! Hehe. I posted it in my family’s LINE group chat and my colleagues’ group chat on top of the band group chat. The negatives were equal to the positives. A lot for me to take in, learn, and improve. I am glad.

I am finding it increasingly difficult to juggle the many many responsibilities I have on top of the many many things I have to do and on top of the many many things I want to do.

Hay naku.

Especially music. Really not enough time, what more moolahs.

Will check out a sale at a music shop in Downtown East tomorrow with my younger sister, Hidayah. If the price is reasonable, I might get an electric guitar along with a basic starter kit. Amp, picks, etc. If they sell microphones, I wouldn’t hesitate to look into getting a condenser for recording, what with all these original compositions surfacing in my band, by A, by my cousin, Ryan Dee, and by myself, of course. I might even think of looking into setting up a mini-home studio.

Well, see, I already need to divide my time to cater to the various aspects of music: listening to music, studying music, writing songs, recording music, practising on various instruments, performing songs, and sharing music. But how can I do all that efficiently given my current workload? Adoi la adoi.

Still, I am secretly grateful you’re living this moment with me.

More music, please.

And Allah Knows best. And He is the Knower of all things. – MM
