Initiative Interrupted

8 October 2007 09:14

It's heartening to see that there's at least one person out there who'scarrying out the festive greeting cards initiative. For someone who's been described as "visionary", I'm not doing it this time around, unfortunately, as I've been completely blindsided by how fast this year's Ramadhan is passing. Next year, I promise. Meanwhile, get yourself a real greeting card from a cool dude with whacky ideas (he prompted me to do thatSiti Nurhaliza featuring Snoop Dogg mashup after all. That's gotta count, right?) to decorate your living rooms and show off to your friends when they come visit. While stocks last. Avoid where prohibited.

The Next Pendirian

14 September 2007 15:35

Sashi the funny fella wanted me to mash Siti Nurhaliza and Snoop Dogg in a song. It looked impossible in the beginning until this morning when I woke up post imsak (my body parts can really go on auto pilot and shut off the alarm even though when I'm in REM state). Feeling frustrated that I missed out on the time window to fill up my tummy to make it through the first day of fasting, ideas started to stream about the requested mash. Unlike Audi who recently had the chance to record Malaysia's pop darling in his studio, I just had to make do with whatever stuff I have on my iPod (which incidentally has now run out of space). So here's the end result. I call this mix the Sashi Syok Sama Siti Mix. Try saying that out loud a couple of times for effect.

Suhu Rinduku

3 September 2007 09:20

Anybody who knows me will probably know how dangdut music irritates me like how my mashups probably irritate some people that they rather have a sharp pointy thing being shoved into their ears. So this new mashup will probably be the mother of all irritations combined. Over at Facebook (where all the action has been happening apparently), I put up a question asking which song by a Malaysian artist would they like to hear being mashed-up/remixed with a foreign act's and if workable, I may just do it for real. Christina in all her creative wisecracking wisdom came up with Amelina Dangdut with Sean Paul. Since it was her birthday, I decided to just do it. Here's Amelina Dangdut's Rindu mashed with Sean Paul's Temperature. The first mix was originally over 5 minutes long. It has now been pared down to a torture friendly duration of just slightly over 3 minutes.

At this time of writing, I'm still trying to get Siti Nurhaliza and Snoop Dogg to duet as per Sashi's suggestion. Yes, people. I'm taking requests!

Going On Sixth And It's Sick!

27 August 2007 17:29

This website celebrates its sixth anniversary today. Unlike previous years, it's been a rather slow period, especially the last few months. I attribute that to my being lazy more than anything else besides having nothing out of the ordinary to talk about. Sure there may be an abundance of things on the socio-political end that can be laughed at talked about but I refuse to get into that on grounds that I'ma wuss who doesn't wanna risk being jailed just politically apathetic. Besides, no amount of rant will get Samy Vellu out of office so why waste pixels and electrons on them? And in case you haven't noticed, the lack of ads on this website since Day One also means that I'm not doing this for money at all. So why have I and still am doing this?

Simply put: for the fun of it and because I can. So yes, this site will go on for a bit more. I'm not going away yet. But if anybody asks, just tell them I'm not at home.

I'm Not Worthy

17 July 2007 15:17

A few weeks ago, I mentioned about that piece of music I did for "So You Think You Can Dance" Top 12 episode that was to be choreographed by Pat Ibrahim. I'm just glad that there's at least one person out there who thinks that it was worth his/her time to put it up on YouTube:

I've also put up the few tracks that I've done slight remixes to for the show in my Imeem playlist. At least I think they're worthy enough.

If anything else, there's always the pictures that you can look at that's worth a couple thousand words.

Born On The 7th Of July

7 July 2007 23:07

Ayah celebrates his 68th birthday today. The alignment of the sevens automagically makes today somewhat auspicious but I bet things were even more of a hoot back in 1977.

Anyways, Happy Birthday, Ayah!

Ableton Live Love!

20 June 2007 17:03

I've had several people asking me what do I use to make those mashups/remixes. So I guess the timing hasn't been better to express my love for this exquisite piece of German software engineering called Ableton Live. Now in its 6th incarnation, Live allows people like me who hasn't gotten any formal musical training to get audio expressions (I still don't think most of the stuff I came up with qualifies as "musical") out of my head. Word also has it that American Idol runner-up Blake Lewis used Live himself to remix and create those unexpected arrangements of Bon Jovi's "You Give Love a Bad Name" and Diana Ross' "You Keep Me Hanging On".

Live is fun to use, easy to learn and unlike Windows, it's rock solid with it hardly ever crashing on me (or Windows for that matter). Since I also use it exclusively to do the song edits for So You Think You Can Dance, I actually purchased a licensed boxed copy of it, which includes the Essential Instrument Collection, from audioMIDI.com (Mom and Dad once told me never earn a living using stolen goods). The good folks there also bundled a free M-Audio Oxygen 49 MIDI controller keyboard with my purchase! But that's not all. They even threw in a spiffy Ableton t-shirt that is just my size!

In my next entry, I'm going to tell you how Ableton Live helped me improve my fitness, win friends, increase my IQ and move one step closer to getting laid scoring that long term relationship with a member of the opposite sex.

Kau Kunci My Humps Di Dalam Hati Mu

15 June 2007 04:12

Here's a mashup track that didn't go anywhere as I lost the momentum to complete it. Makes a good cellphone ringtone though. Just make sure you answer your phone within 17 seconds before it starts to embarass you in public. You might just get pelted.

Sharing Some Sideshow Stuff

26 May 2007 01:30

All of a sudden, things started happening on the stuff I'm doing on the sides. My work at "So You Think You Can Dance" is going on well (although intense at times) and before you know it, we're just left with another month to go. My first proper musical work will (hopefully - at this time of writing) be featured in the next "Malaysiana" episode (Top 12) of the show and Pat Ibrahim himself will be choreographing the dance to the song. Elation! Then, a couple of weekends ago I got a call from Pacai saying he might want to feature one of the remixes I did for his song Tanya (sung byAfdlin Shauki) on Sumo-lah's soundtrack. Ecstasy! In between it all, I also finally get to meet up with Audi Mok who graciously let me in on some of his unreleased tracks and his music production techniques. In the excitement though, I forgot to hand him those cans of lychee I owe him. So it's been weird driving around town with those cans rolling about in my car since.

I'm not sure how the stuff I mentioned above will help me get laid anytime soon. That's why I'm keeping my day job for now. Not that the latter will get me laid either.

I really need to get out more often.
