For the three of us, AGM stands for “Annual Group Meetup”.
Involving dinner, coffee, and philosophy.
[Hmm... realised I didn't record our last face-to-face meetup. Ponderosa at Toa Payoh Hub.]
We talked about I-Ling’s blog post on how she picked up making music again (how touching *sniff*), and at the same breath I poked fun at how she owed a few vocal pieces.
At one point, it led to Adrian quipping: “Our music is a form of expression. If people like it, it’s because they can identify with it. We don’t really write songs with a ‘hook’ deliberately. I think that allows us to be really creative.”
Though, I cautioned, that could sound like an excuse for not improving our musical craft.
I-Ling suggested we were “Starfish Stories :: The Excuses”.
Maybe we’re using our music as an excuse.
So that we can indulge in philosophical musings over dinner and coffee.
