No, it's not target practice! Just a nice way to put the AIM acronym in..
Me and Eddie, along with Lilian on trombone, will be working with reknown musical director Aubrey Suwito for the Anugerah Industri Muzik (AIM) awards show this Saturday night. AIM is like the local Grammy Awards, blah blah blah. I honestly don't really give a hootz about it, but it's a good gig that we can work with Aubrey. We hardly ever get to work with him, and I would personally love to work with him more, especially on the more creative level. But Aubrey hardly ever gig outside like most of us... it would've been really interesting! The last open show, or specifically, a jazz show that featured Aubrey, was at the Sunrise-Mont Kiara Jazz Festival a couple of years back, maybe in 2003, I think.
Tomorrow's a full day rehearsal from afternoon, and a full dress run at night. Saturday's the show itself. If you have the right mind and interest to catch US, and not some of those fellas trying to sing on stage, then watch NTV7 at around 8.30pm, I reckon. I think it'll be shown "live".
Of course, there'll be some good artistes as well, such as Siti, Noryn, Sean Ghazi (good luck Sean!), Aishah, Reshmonu... the rest ahh??? Mmmmmm...
On another note..
I got a letter from Queens College sometime last week.. boy was I excited!! But it turned out a bit of a damper, they received my application, but couldn't fully process it because they didn't have my previous university transcripts!
I thought I had them sent from Curtin? Well, maybe they did, but it could possibly be that I didn't follow up with my application after I made that request to Curtin. So it's possible the Admissions department in Queens might have misplaced it. That was like, a quite few months back. Oh well. I called up Curtin again on Monday, and requested them to send another copy. And they did, as they sent me an email. I hope Queens get it, and process my application fast! I really need to make necessary arrangements to go pretty soon... applying for visa, plane ticket, blah blah blah. I don't want to end up waiting for another semester to go!
Wish me luck...
