Last weekend, we had an Angklung recording at gamelan training room in which it was conducted by Cikgu Ku Zahir. Based on the schedule, we were supposed to record ten songs. However, due to the lack of time, we recorded only a total of five songs for this week as the recording is not as easy as we thought. One thing that we've learn about recording Angklung is that the songs are recorded line by line instead of recording the whole lines all together at one go. We started our recording session on Saturday at 2p.m. The recording began with Enjit-Enjit Semut (our master piece song...hehe), then followed by Bosame Mucho. After that, we had a break and went for dinner together and continued the recording at 8.15 p.m with Bujang Lapok and finished at around 10p.m. On Sunday, we started our recording session at 10 a.m with Rindu Bayangan. Cikgu Ku Zahir had modified the song by adding the choir (which are actually OUR BEAUTIFUL voices) for the background of the intro to make the song nicer and enjoyable. Actually, our voices did not reach the level, but because of the power of technology, everything was good and impressive. In the middle of the recording, Cikgu gave us some useful tips on how to be a good angklung player and InsyaAllah we will implement these tips that were given to us.

After a short break, we continued the recording with Poco-Poco and then finished at 6p.m. Though we were tired since the recording took hours just to finish one song, the whole recording thing was great and it was such an amazing(words that Cikgu always said) experience and we enjoy the days. Special thanks to Kak Sarah, Kak Wahida, Kak Paeja and Kak Wawawawa for coming and joining the recording session even though all of them are already graduated from IIUM. It shows that they still have the IAG spirit in their soul. We are going to have another recording next weekend to record the remaining five songs. InsyaAllah we will do our best. Cross your finger everyone!-saje je.. huhu
