Hi we are: Gabby, Iman, Sara, Lisa, Sarah, Sena, Stevie.
Today we were really excited and couldn’t wait for the pizza and to record our song. It was so heavy hearing our voices play back on the speakers.

Abby showed us the first draft of the video from the pictures and videos Gabby, Stevie and Iman have been taking in the last two weeks. It looks really good and we like most of the pictures and videos used.

Dina wanted to re-do her pictures, where she’s in motion. She said it doesn’t look good, “it’ scary”. We were not able to do that because she had to edit the song and rehearse before recording.

Sena and Nyalissa went over lyrics and edited them as the final lyrics to record. This version was a lot more easier. We met the sound engineer Keith at the Crypt. He was alright and did some funky stuff with our voices when recording, sometimes it would sound like an echo. It was calm!

He recorded Sara, Dina and Sena doing the verses, then the rest of us doing the chorus. It was weird hearing ourselves recorded, but we really had fun!

Sena realised that she was good at rapping and that she really liked being in the studio. I think she’s gonna come back to the Crypt to use the music studio.

We are really happy we got to record the song.

Here are some of the photos from today, we will be adding these to the music video.
