In March it was time again to go to one of our favourite places on earth – Uganda. At a ceremony in Kampala we were honoured, as well as surprised, to receive a reward from Aflame Gospel Assembly as we have been a part of their music production team since 2013. As “Analog Prophet” (our artist name when making electronic ambient music with an ethnic vibe) we performed at the ceremony.
The main purpose for the trip was a CD release for a CD we produced with our friends in Kampala: See His Glory. The vocals were recorded in a hotel room, transformed to a studio with mattresses and recording equipment. Eventually we worked with the music arrangements, mixing and mastering in Sweden before we now went back to Kampala for the CD release.
We visited Hong Kong for the 4th time in December-January. As before it was supposed to be concerts but due to the internal serious problems the host in HK had the concerts were cancelled. The organisation in HK has now sadly been discontinued. But friends from all over the world remains. As the flight tickets as well as hotel rooms were paid for we decided to go anyhow. First time ever we went for playing on concerts without playing on concerts. Instead we met many friends, including some musicians from Hungary that were supposed to be a part of the band and some vocalists. Music is important – friendship is more important!
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.
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.
