Site minor renewal

February 28th, 2021

This site has been minor renewed, for the first time in these 14 years. The new design, though not a complete rebuild, went through the repeated trials so should be able to be better read and navigated, while preserving the existing concept.  The site is now “Oggy Live Today”, named after the live streaming. The menu structures and the other various parts are also improved.  The past articles are still accessible. I hope you like it! Please let me know if you find any bugs or issues

[Report] Christmas Music TG

December 29th, 2020

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.
