Our wayPosted: November 8, 2012
At this week’s rehearsal we came up with a new song! It’s not entirely finished yet but the start to a great song, for sure! This week has been tough so far because we have a lot of homework and classes.. But then again, we also have each other and that’s really nice, to have friends. : ) And of course, those two hours a week when we go play music.. Those are great too! At the rehearsal Jade took some pictures. Often when Elvi is figuring out an instrumental bit on the piano, Jade gets bored and starts walking around and playing with everything she can find (she also exercises like you can see in one of the pictures below). Now and then she comments “maybe something more evil here” or “maybe a little warmer there” and then Elvi continues. That’s how the songs are made really, all of them: our way. It’s like we turn on this ‘creativity’ button and get inspired by everything around us. All of our brains’ parts get linked with each other and we start to write, based on our emotions and instant thoughts. It’s a very fun process, come to think of it. We usually write the basis of our songs in about 2 hours. Then of course, they have to be recorded and we add other instruments and all that, but fundamentally, 2 hours is all it takes. Magic, right?
We also want to thank Lai Yan because she gaves us amazingly delicious Chinese crackers. And thanks Lara for the beautiful black dress! She gave it away to Elvi, but because Elvi is so tall it was too short for her, so she gave it to Jade. Thank you so much!
Elvi also got a gorgeous dark (very dark) red nailpolish from the Yves Rocher two weeks ago and Jade was kind of jealous. But now she first applied a thin layer of black nail polish and then finished it off with a layer of red and tadaa, our nails look exactly the same!
Also, our friend Laura had a photoshoot with her boyfriend this week. We think the picture is absolutely adorable and we wish them all the happiness of the world together! The picture was taken by Zihan Tang. Check his flickr account out here, and scroll all the way down to see the incredibly cute picture!
Tall and tiny
ps: don’t your just love Jade’s raccoon sweater?
