Dong Tai Du photography session

I am glad that invited by Ah Tat to join the Dong Tai Du photography session last Sunday, I have a great chance to snap with SengKit, Ricky and Sui Gor. There were around 30 musicians took part in the session, to demonstrate the action and spirit of Dong Tai Du (动态度). Each of them were requested to jump or do some tricky actions to be captured at a compound of a flat. SengKit and Ricky were the main photographers, while I responsible in recording the whole process, together with Sui Gor. The photos taken will be stitched up and form a panorama photo. Then we moved to Sungai Wang plan to have a street pogo and distribute the gig flyers, but due to lack of crowd at that time, we decided to postpone the second plan to another evening.

Thanks everyone who worked hard to make this session a success and a fun one. 😀

Music Reunion Gig 5

New year count down, seems like an activity for youngsters and not for an uncle like me, that fed up with traffic jams and over crowded. However, I’ve attended a count down party yesterday, Music Reunion Gig 5. It was held at Cheras Kaki Corner which I thought I could avoid from traffic jam and crowded people. However I was wrong, because coincidently, the church nearby having count down party, too. Summing up the Church visitors with other diners at that famous western food street, the traffic there was exploding, I was only able to park my car at a hill quite far away.

However I still managed to make it before Silent Prayer performing. Silent Prayer, once a nu metal band is now left 2 core members Ah Hou and Silent Keat, presenting ther new Hip Hop songs to us. As usual, Ah Hou as vocal but Silent Keat is now a PC DJ. Silent Keat also the DJ playing music during the bands exchanging the stage.

Next was the local Chinese politic band Nao. They have brought us new songs, including a song dedicated to the blood sucker Minister Mr. Samy Vellu. Ah Tat was wearing yellow BERSIH helmet, gave speeches regarding his (or our) disappointments to the current government while expressing his thoughts via their songs.

After that was the Penang metal band Oracle. They came all the way to KL with their die hard metal supporters. They also brought the only moshing and head banging at the night and pushed the temperature of Kaki Corner to new level, even Mark played body surfing.

If Oracle brought up the head banging session, then The Other Side Orchestra managed to brought up the dancing session with their rich music generated by 6 pieces of instruments including keyboard and synthesizer. The audience danced together with the music and the lighting effect special customized by The Other Side Orchestra.

The last band performed was 3 piece band Dian Bang. Playing with 2 notebooks and simple music instruments, they brought up their bedroom-made music. At this time, the battery power of my speedlite was exhausted. So I have replace the Sigma 18-200mm HSM OS to Canon 50mm f1.8II to continue capture the event. Even though without speedlite, the big aperture of the lens enabling me to capture the event with another fresh feel that I never tried.

After all bands performing, it’s DJs’ turn. DJ Rainf of Dropout continue the event with his down-tempo+dark-side drum and bass.

In last few minutes of 2007, the female DJ, DJ Chelsea take over the console from DJ Rainf. Her Techno-house music was played across the year, giving a complete ending of this event.
