    What do you do before you record?

    Post by zin on Sun Oct 17, 2010 5:44 am

    lol Kangdanim's post reminded me about this.

    I usually before i record for kurisu I,
    Take a shower
    Brush teeth and mouth wash
    and eat something xP
    (not in that order)

    and i always have something to drink on hand ^_^

    when i have sabii and fureddo over i feed them like in between recorder switch off. most of the time i usually let Fureddo go first, while Sabii falls asleep reading a manga or Artemis Fowl. i think its odd that Sabii calls my mom a mil f xD..

    anyways what do you do o-o

    I get myself some warm socks.
    Eat some chocolate.
    Get a lot of ice tea and a glass.
    Practise a bit.
    And start.

    So....


    If it's in the morning (rare) :

    I drink pineapple juice with a touch of milk (pineapple dissolves all things which hurt my throat and milk avoid pineapple juice to agress it)

    And atfer I practise



    If it's in the afternoon/evening/night :

    I practice before, and then:

    For a cute/chibish/high/airy voice :

    -Drink milk
    -Drink cold water
    -Inspire cold air

    For a medium voice :

    Just practice / eat chocolate / inspire normal air

    For a boyish/low/deep/strong voice :

    -Eat chocolate
    -Drink coffee
    -Eat spicy
    -Inspire warm air

    And if I want trying a boy voice, I use a jar with pierced tissue n_n

    - Wait for family to leave house.
    - Family doesn't leave.
    - No recording that day.

    Or

    - Come home early from school.
    - Turns out siblings didn't have work that day.
    - No recording that day.

    Ffffff it's so annoying, and no way will I record with my family around.

    Besides that, whenever I actually manage to get some recording time I just get a glass of water so that my throat doesn't get dry.

    Absolutely nothing.

    Or, if I have no motivation and am being forced to:

    -Absolutely nothing
    -Lots of procrastination.

    Really, I record/sing/whatever even when my parents are home. Also I do it at random. 8D

    -Run around the house and make sure no one is home. (Or just close the door if they are. XD I feel better when they're gone, though.)
    -Steal a bottle of soda and run to my room.
    -Drink it.
    -Watch YouTube/Chat on MSN
    -Remember that I'm supposed to record and do that.
    -Record a LOT, but not all of it, then get bored and quit.
    -Listen to the recordings, get frustrated and delete them.

    Repeat. xD
