Mr. Minowa listened to the rough recording of the kids I sent him yesterday and is very excited about the quality of their sound. He said that we have the tone color he is looking for already. He gave me some suggestions for how to make the best recording I can that will provide him with what he needs. Keep your fingers crossed that the equipment I ordered comes in time.
I am starting to follow leads to find a Japanese organization that benefits children that have been affected by the tsunami and earthquake. I am looking for an ultra-local school or community choir or similar organization. I found some better footage that I am considering pursuing the rights to. It depends how expensive the license is. If you haven’t listened to Street Spirit (Fade Out) yet you really need to. The song is perfect and may help us do a lot of good for children like ours, half a world away.
