[Report] Christmas Music TG

Christmas Music TG was successfully held on December 25th.
Thank you to everyone who participated online and supported us. This time I played the role of host and performer. This year, everyone was forced to take necessary measures against COVID-19, and I guess each person had to overcome his/her own issues. It would be great if we could have provided a place for the TG (event) on Christmas Friday to heal the tiredness of the year and maintain vitality.
On the day of the event, with a small number of people, we played music, including Christmas songs, exchanged recent updates, gave presents and so on. The special guest, krystalcube, also showed off her cute singing voice, which greatly increased the attractiveness of the party.
At the Kellogg Club of Japan, which hosted the event, Professor Kotler, the marketing guru, talked about ” marketing of peace”, when he visited Japan. It’s also a good time to look back on your achievements during the year. I thought that music might also play a role as a medium to answer to this question, a medium that conveys a message in an easy-to-understand manner. So, at the event, we played John Lennon’s “Happy Christmas (War Is Over)”. This is a masterpiece song suits perfectly for this purpose. The Double Fantasy Exhibition has been held in Roppongi, too, so their activities are given attention here.
In terms of content production and technology, there are some parts that we did quite enthusiastically in the limited resources and preparation time. In the above “Happy Christmas (War Is Over)”, Oggy collaborated with krystalcube by real-time audio synchronization in a remote place. The two of us never met offline this year, but repeated online rehearsals and experiments for the TG event. Other participants also sang/hummed and co-starred through Zoom. There should be many points to improve in quality, but there are excitement and empathy when new things are opened up, such as in the early days of radio.
Here is the link to the latest music video of krystalcube (+ Yoshihiro Yuki), who made the valuable guest appearance, so please have a look.
Oggy Live Today has been held every day since April 4, and as of now, it has been held 269 times in a row. Looking forward to see you there.

オンライン参加頂いた方、サポート頂いた方、皆さんありがとうございました。今回ホスト役、演奏などをさせて頂きました。今年は新型コロナウイルスに対して皆さんそれぞれが必要な対応を迫られ、中には苦労もあったのではと思います。TG (イベント)として、クリスマスの金曜に少しでもゆっくりと一年の疲れを癒やし、活力を維持する場が提供できたのであれば幸いです。
当日はこじんまりとした人数で、アットホームにクリスマスソング含め音楽演奏、近況交換、プチプレゼント企画などをしました。スペシャルゲストの krystalcube さんもキュートな歌声の弾き語りを披露してくださり、会の魅力度を大幅に上げて頂きました。
そこで、イベントでは John Lennon の「Happy Christmas (War Is Over)」を演奏しました。今回の趣旨にピッタリな名曲です。ちょうど
コンテンツ制作的・技術的には、限られたリソース・準備期間の中、かなり意欲的に踏み込んだ部分もあります。上記「Happy Christmas (War Is Over)」では、krystalcube さんと遠隔地でのリアルタイムなオーディオ同期によるコラボ共演を行いました。2人で今年1度もオフラインで会うことはなく、オンラインでのリハ・実験を繰り返して TG に臨んだものです。各参加者の皆さんも、Zoomを介して口ずさんで共演頂きました。クオリティはいくらでも改善部分がありますが、ラジオ黎明期のような、新しいものが切り開かれる時の興奮と感動がありますね。
貴重なゲスト出演を頂いた krystalcubeさん(+ Yoshihiro Yuki さん)の最新ミュージックビデオもリンクを貼っておきますので、是非ご覧ください。
Oggy Live Today も4月4日から毎日実施中で、今現在で269回連続となりました。こちらもぜひ遊びにいらしてください 😊
