okay. time to go run again.
before that just wanna say another door to a world of new tunes just opened 2 hours ago and i am really excited.
here are some tips i got from eric yesterday:
- limit the range of a song to slightly more than an octave
- be clear on what to emphasise on, your voice or the song
- a good commercial song comprises of a good melody and a suitable structure
- to obtain proper structure and to create the hook, have not more than 3 motifs in the chorus
and i just found out that jay chou uses alot of repeat and reverse motifs in his songs, like 菊花台.
and it came to my realisation that we can use 1-bar, 2-bar or 4-bar motifs to write the songs. wahhhh so exciting.
okay go run.
spat out by nat ,time 10:06 PM
woohoo. starting pop piano lessons at play by ear next month with jonathan, whom i have never seen before. HAHA really really excited to start improving on piano playing. :)

i wanna open a cafe.
a 2-storey glasshouse cafe set by the beach with the mountains and forests in the background. there will be drawings on the walls and the glass windows, and photographs taken by my friends hung proudly on every little desirable corner, and an open carpet grass area big enough to accommodate a band and an intimate evening crowd of 50. so cool, dark and romantic, you can even see stars in the eyes of the person sitting next to you while enjoying the night breeze.
the first floor sells coffee, but i am still undecided about what to do with the second: clothes? cooking class? living area?
okay. shall brainstorm during the night run.
