CD recording, concerts and media training in Uganda March 2016

Uganda March 2016

In March we visited Kampala, Uganda for a CD recording and concerts with Eleonora Lahti. Just like last time we were here at Aflame Gospel Assembly 2013 we made a simple but working project studio by a hotel room, paced with mattresses.

Last time we came with a group of Chinese people from Authentic Worship Ministry in Hong Kong and recorded songs from there ministry. This time it was their own songs. They wrote songs and documented them by simple recording, sent to us and we arranged the songs from the basic ideas and made music tracks. We toke some equipment with us and recorded the vocals plus some piano tracks in the hotel room, Back in Stockholm, Sweden preparing the mix plus arrange some additional songs recorded to piano in Kampala.

Eleonora Lahti participated with her songs during the nights and had a concert as well. We also trained singers a and media crew while we were there.

Next time in Kampala, Uganda will be first week of October 2016 for a big release concert and continually train the media crew..

Concerts in Shanghai February 2016

Shanghai
For a week in February 2016 we visited Shanghai and had 4 concerts in different environments. in one way it was hard to understand each other as it’s not that common people talk English there. But in another way, and more important way, we could easily understand each other by the music. Exciting how music is an universal language, understandable by all people everywhere.

Preparation for Uganda CD

uganda2013

In March we will record a CD of 9 songs on location in Kampala, Uganda. It is the second CD we record in Uganda, last was 2013. We are now working with the arrangements of the songs and making music tracks to be used when recording vocals (plus piano on two songs). As last time we will make a simple project studio out of a hotel room for a week. Studio environment is challenging when tracking vocals but it is still far away from this kind of recordings when one must find creative solutions for any problem not normally appear when recording vocals in a studio – and thats an art we like, the art of recording.

To record vocals in a hotel room is challenging, not at least with traffic noise that mattresses on the wall won’t eject with a regular studio condenser microphone. Therefor we will try out the new Ehrlund D microphone for lead vocals. For choir we use an Ehrlund M Microphone, all hooked up to a portable sound card with bused power supply for the condenser microphone when the electrical power is not stable but frequently goes down in the heart of Africa and a laptop computer. It will then be brought back to our production studio in Stockholm, Sweden for editing, mixing and mastering during spring time.
