Tada~!!!New Handy Videocam and Textiles

7 Apr

Happy Easter Sunday,everyone!!!! ❋ ❋ ❋ ❋ ❋ ❋

Yesterday,I asked a fellow ATHENAZ member,Mikaru, to help me buy some textiles for my costume for our next dance cover.

We went to the mall and we had lunch and then we proceeded to the textiles section.

We had a hard time choosing for the right material since we also considered the money I had in my pocket at that time!

Mikaru is such a practical kind of woman when it comes to money and textiles.

I was able to save a great amount of money!

Here’s the textile~

Can you now guess what our next dance cover is?

Hohoho~!!It is still a secret for now!!!

Also yesterday,my pop already bought the video camera and a tripod that has promised me weeks ago!!!

Awww~!!Thanks,pop!!!

I seriously wanted a video camera for ATHENAZ and we have one now!!!

More videos!More videos!!! ✭ ✯ ✰

Recording- A Failure!

7 Apr

After ATHENAZ’s 1st project,which was the SHOCK! dance cover,we were tasked to submit 2 demo songs to H!PPH to review our voices.

~.~

After our practice!

I know I am not a singer,but I tried my best y’know!Hahaha!

(-̮̮̃•)۶

How’s this,I am Suzuki Airi,C-ute’s lead vocalist!

The pressure’s on me!!! ► ◄

My 4 co-members are amazing singers!What’s so great is the fact that they can match or they sound like the 4 C-ute members!

So, I am the only one who is different from the others! (╥﹏╥)

I was a member of a choir when I was in elementary but it didn’t last for a long time.I had to quit because I needed to focus on my studies.

I can sing but not that type of singing which can impress people.It’s just normal!Hahaha!!!

We decided to do covers of two C-ute songs.

We practiced almost everyday during break time!My friends gave me advices on how to do this and how to do that.I am so happy because they are so supportive! ♡♡♡♡♡♡

With the help of our classmate,we were able to find a recording studio here in our city.

The payment is expensive and the studio’s environment is not the same as to what I had expected!

We were so disappointed.

Why?

There were only three mics. What we did was they gave me one mic,another mic for the 2 members and the last mic to the other two members.

My mic had a problem.It has a blurry effect or something like that!

There were weird noises!The engineer said that he’ll just clean the audio to remove the unwanted noises.

The engineer is not that friendly!He’s so intimidating!!!!!!

The payment is 400php.We thought it’s only 180php!

He’s a bit arrogant!

Those factors above affected me!I was:

pressured

conscious

nervous

intimidated

not able to release my real voice.I used throating instead of using the voice from my diaphragm

In the end,while listening to the recorded audio,I cried.My co-members and our managers comforted me.They told me that my voice was okay and they can understand because that was the first time we were able to experience a real recording!


The day after that,our classmate got the edited songs.

The hell!!!They’re not good!!!!They were not fixed and cleaned by the engineer!!

(ノಠ益ಠ)ノ

400php!Such a precious money!It was wasted for real! m(><)m

Right now,we are planning to do something that can help us with our song covers!!

Hohohoho!!!

Wait for them,minna!!

ATHENAZ!!!

6 Apr

This post is about one of the greatest things that’s ever happened to me this year!

I am talking about ATHENAZ,a C-ute dance cover group!!!! 。◕‿◕。

*^_^*

ATHENAZ,is the name we decided for our dance cover group!Do you guys remember my last post about SHOCK and 5nins?

This is it!

We have 5 members and I’ll enumerate them one by one!

♫ ♬ Mari (Yajima Maimi)

♫ ♬ Mikaru (Nakajima Saki)

♫ ♬ Momo (Suzuki Airi) —-That’s me!

♫ ♬ Mica (Okai Chisato)

♫ ♬ Mimi (Hagiwara Mai)

(Members were arranged according to the age of the C-ute members each are portraying.)

At first we were having hard times dealing with our conflicting schedules yet we were able to overcome this problem.

We filmed the dance,did a short pictorial and it’s all finished!

We also had problems with the conversion of the file but everything’s okay now~ (─‿‿─)

We have managers too!!!!

And the best part here is we are now actually under Hello! Project Philippines. It’s not an official agency.It’s just a fanpage for H!P fans in the Philippines.

(─‿‿─)

This page has this vision that is so amazing and we are so proud to be a part of it!

(≧◡≦)

Well,too much for this!

Here’s our SHOCK! dance cover!!! ENJOY~!!!

We are targeting to accomplish 3 dance covers this summer!! ★ ★

Wait for them,minna~!!!! 。◕‿◕。

SHOCK!——-Getting Ready for a New Dance Cover!

13 Feb

Yo~!!!

Another new post!

Apparently, I’m in the mood again to do a dance cover…Together with new groupmates from my class. We are DokiDoki DanceNation!

Classmate D, classmate J and Me!!!!!

I love it whenever I’m with them to do a cover since the two of them are really devoted and are willing to learn anything!

We’ve been doing dances since last year November….Solo dances to be exact.

But due to our hectic schedules in the university, we eventually took a rest for some time.

I don’t know what came into my mind last week. I wanted to do a cover again.This time it’s a five-man team.

We decided to do C-ute’s SHOCK! dance—-this time as a group!

From left to right- Chisato, Maimi, Airi, Nakky and Mai

C-ute is an H!P group composed of five members.Apparently, we can’t find 2 more members to complete the group, so we decided to just lower down the member numbers to three!

I think it’s enough.

And the hell!

I will be doing Airi’s part! The entire song is almost sung by Airi! Except for the chorus where the other members get to sing with her!

Classmate D will be doing Nakky’s part a while Classmate J will be Maimi,C-ute’s leader!

But then I’ll do my best to create an amazing dance cover!

We’ll be shooting the dance this Sunday!

Gambarimasu~!!!
