the great adventure

24.9.07 now playing: filthy mcnasty, boston brass

watching phil winds meets boston brass tonight made me miss quite a couple of things. just listening to the SUPER laser sound (2 trumpets, even 1 tuba, can take over the whole band) and the pretty in-tune 12-note (every note on the chromatic scale) chord made me miss being under dr lee's baton, organ sound, being up there on stage complaining how hot the spot lights were, my french horn, all the acjc bandits (who were, ironically, sitting right beside me hurhur), the wasbe conference 2 years back, just about everything to do with band that i sort of left behind this year after june's alumni (yes, i cannot wait for march 7, i'll prolly sound like crap then sigh).

it never really occured to me, how much music is my escape. it's just like how, during the wasbe conference, for those few hours in the afternoon and evening, the reality of promos just sort of got left at the esplanade door. in the same way tonight, for those few hours in the esplanade concert hall, i just about forgot how i still had a morning class the next day, how my midterms were coming up, how i just started uni. i haven't touched my piano on a regular basis for a long time, i think it's time to do that. lose yourself in the many notes. forget who you are, for the next few hours, you're a... fermata, hold me haha. what happened to the music dream ruth, you're losing it. don't.

in other news, i've finally got my wireless up and running, and it's so stable, i'm so disgustingly happy haha. alright, morning class reality sets in sigh.

Give me strength to cross the water,
keep my heart upon Your altar.
Give me strength to cross this water,
keep my feet don't let me falter.

run run run
