First Experience



This is my band performing a few days back.

Performing is a really good experience for me because it is very thrilling and when we play our music, we enjoy the moment so our stage presence is filled with energy and enthusiasm. It is also the response that we get from the audience that makes us even more energetic. When on stage, we’re all out to have fun and make those watching us have fun too. It is also interactive as while we’re performing, we get response from the crowd like the clapping, singing along, dancing, headbanging, etc and in turn, we feel more pumped and the hype is even greater. (but if you’ve got a really dead crowd then it’s a different story)

Keywords: thrilling, exciting, crazy, extreme, devoted, exuberant

Second Experience

hah 054

Attending concerts/gigs.

This was last year’s Saosin/Incubus concert. Attending concerts are geat experiences for me. We go to concerts because we like that group or band so we want to watch them perform. So obviously it is something to look forward to and it just is a blast there, sometimes if you’re lucky you get to meet new people, including the band members and that is way awesome. Other times, we’re just there to have fun and enjoy the music and vibe and everything else. It’s a worry-free environment and it’s not an everyday thing. The girl in that picture above is Taya Rogers, very powerpack MTV VJ. That’s what I mean by meeting people. There are lots of interaction going on, obviously one wouldn’t go there and keep silent throughout. We talk, joke, clap, sing along, dance. We interact with the people performing, with the people around us, and with our friends.

Keywords : exhilarating, enjoyable, memorable, worry-free.

    I never really been to a concert but hearing it from people around me it sounds really crazy as you have labelled it.

    A good experience should be one that is memorable and etched in your mind and i dare say this is memorable for you as you are the performer.

    After every performance, when you receive applauses from the audience, the feeling cannot be described. So full filling.

    Wow…Great experience..Band performance.. The video is funny too.. I do agree that it is a good experience. All performances that we have in our life are good experience. This will make us put in effort to train for the performance, and make us to be more discipline in such a way that we can be responsible towards our performance. By looking at the audiences’ responces, we can know that how well you’ve perform.

    Interaction is about doing something and getting feedback. In your case, being confirmed by you audience is a form of interaction. You will feel exceptionally good when your hardwork and efforts has been appreciated by others. =)

    – achievement and memorable

    Somehow, the music reminds me of Japanese and Americans heavy metal, punk bands. Though I don’t favor such music but it definitely looks fun. Haha with those audiences nodding their along with the band members. Wanted to try that too but I guess I’ll faint from dizziness first. XD I guess it’s always a good experience for bands when their audiences/fans participate in the concert to show their support.

    Hi Sam,

    You and your band performing on the stage was a very cool experience. And you have to interact with the audience by your music and some stage performance.
