Miracle Man - Brian Tan

17th Jan 2010

4th July 2010

If there's a real life Superhero whom i personally know, the title should be Miracle Man. Donning the suit of Miracle Man would be Brian Tan.=)
6 Months / Half a year back, a great friend of mine, Brian was diagnosed with last stage of Pancreas Cancer (View my post back then: ) and upon hearing the news, i was utterly devastated and even shed a tear or two. The same expression and emotion struck me a couple of hours ago and words cant express the joy when i visited him to see this Extraordinary soul beats the odds and feeling all recovered, after having the cancer cells all frozen to a Negative 160 degrees and cured. Since that fateful day I knew, i have never one day not send a short scripture of the Bible verse (which i receive daily from facebook) to him because i believe Miracles could happen and God creates it!

Keeping myself up to date with Brian's daily, weekly and monthly progress and at the same time, remember him in my chat with the Big man up there every night was the only thing i could do and played a part in his healing and recovering process. To see him all back to his original "color", smiling, laughing and able to chat, share, envision and plan our long awaited and anticipated concert end year together made me realized even more how much friendship and relationship means to each and everyone of our lives. This concert is going to be the first and one of its kind to bring part of "DiversiFy" to LIVE, Incorporating the elements of the different genres Backed with an awesome Live Band and a 70 piece KL PAC Orchestra. This dream lived in us during the recording process of the album...awaiting to be realized.

Finally, Thank you God for his Awesomeness...Moreover, Thank you to each and everyone of you who has kept Brian in your prayers.

God Bless!

Reflection Born =)

Fresh from the Oven in Arkstudios, TTDI this afternoon at 3pm, "REFLECTION" was Conceived.=)
I had a truly remarkable and memorable experience having the best of the circle in working on this Live project intensively for 2 weeks in the studio and it does brings back memories and at the same time, creating refreshing ones as well. For each of you involved: Lewis, Jamie, Wilson, Shah, Nick, Jimmy, your every effort is very much appreciated.

I have not thought of HOW should I market Reflection because its something that came from the heart at That moment and into the keys of the Piano in my home studio sometime in late April, then into the IDEAS in my head and the late night sessions with my co producer, Shah Bass resulting into creating, learning, amalgamating and experiencing the different individual talents, vibe Felt in the recording studio. The Magic touches in Reflection are personally to me just Indescribable, Priceless to be said. To sum it up, it was Inspired by a person, and what i hope is for that Someone to feel the Sincerity in this song (You know you were the First to have it). Of course, in due time, the listeners & audience too.=)

Recording "Reflection" with Drum Legend, Lewis Pragasam

Recording the drums is probably one of my favorite part of the recording process, because not only is the Backbone of the song, you can say its very much different then the other instruments when it comes to recording it. The drums varies in the different venue / studio we are in because of the different acoustics, hence tuning it to get the Right TONE for the particular song is very much important and essential. So indeed, for this song "Reflection"..again we bring back International Drum Legend, Lewis Pragasam who recorded for DiversiFy on "MAHKOTA" & "Sudden Twist".

I personally think one of the most important component of the drum is the Snare which normally if you listen to any pop song, it comes in during the 2nd beat of the bar. and to have a solid Snare tone, it requires a little fussiness to go around it in which we all are. Today, for "Reflection", we used the "Cadesan" Signature Fibreglass Snare, which is the same snare Lewis recorded for Leehom's "Forever Love". What more it got that Solid Punch tone that i envisioned for this song.

Back to School ....Old School

The Arkstudios
Sometimes, we Reflect on our doings, our right / wrong doings, attitude, morality, career, relationship be it with friends or close ones, etc. There was recently a moment i experienced it myself. And i guess, the best way is to express it through the music i make. At this very point of my life, i have longed for sometime to do a live studio session with our very own sessionist greats since the last stage of post production for DiversiFy...therefore, i always believe, as a person very much involved in arts, hence the creativity of the mind, Its very difficult to keep it inside without releasing it. Sounds strange but i guess the ppl who are in this "line" would know what i mean.

Sorting the expertise of a great friend / bassist of mine, Shah..this afternoon, we embarked on the journey of co-producing and recording the Rhythm Section of "Reflection", a song i composed recently during this period of time. To be honest, this moment is kind of bitter sweet for me but i have learned to overcome it and at the same time, grow from it. and, recording in the studio is just a Blissful experience and the perfect medicine.

Instead of the style i am accustomed to in recording the first album, i want a totally different approach for "Reflection" without loosing the identity of myself. As some of you might know, im very much influenced by the style of John Mayer thus in time, you will be able to listen the "Mayerism" in me in this song. At the same time, i would want each and everyone of you to Feel the message i would like to deliver in this song in compatible with the title of it. I always belive making a song is exactly like making a movie. Likewise, in producing an album.

Anyway, Very much excited about it, because an All Star Band is always not to be missed without capturing any Pics & Videos.

I shall let the below PICS & VIDS tell the journey of our session earlier this afternoon. Enjoy!

Asia Uncut @ Shanghai- Behind the Scenes

First and foremost,Thank you to all who read my previous blogpost and keeping my dear friend, Brian Tan in your prayers. He has just undergone his first Chemo in Singapore and is staying strong in this battle. May God Bless him with the greatest love and strength of all!

Anyway, My First Shanghai Trip was a shoot for a Talkshow for Starworld's ASIA UNCUT. Aired every Sunday on ASTRO Channel 711 @ 10pm. Previously based in Singapore and this season in Shanghai, it was indeed a tremendous improvement compared to the first season. The revamped set, storyline and production does have a class of itself, similar to the ones on Saturday Night Live & David Letterman. and of course, no other great host, besides the One and Only Jon Niermann!

Touched down in Pudong Airport at 4pm and off I was to the set in the winter about 3 degrees Celsius.

The pictures below depicts the chronology of "scenes" took place on the very special "Asia Uncut" day:

A Prayer for Brian

In the New year, we look forward to many things....we set resolutions, we plan ahead for the year, we look forward in achieving new goals, and most of all..we want to be a better person. For myself, im actually quite contend with my resolutions last year in which i managed to fulfill all of it...the album, the music, the launch at last. This year, i plan to take the music or rather the album to another level. Because, i always human, we are greedy, just depends how much greed we have. To me, i take this greed as the urge to improve...because life is short, and we have to make the best of it.

I've got a new resolution this year, and it really tops the rest of it..that i ever had or wished before. Its for this friend of mine, Brian fact, a very good friend of mine whom i respect and admire because for his dedication to his craft in Music, both teaching and performing. Brian plays the violin and piano superbly and I regard him as the pioneer of the electric violin in Malaysia. Besides, he conducts the KL Pac Simfonietta Orchestra in which frm the beginning he nurtured young and amateur aspiring musicians into becoming musicians who are able to achieve their dreams today. To sum it all up, he is one of the very few outstanding all rounder musician who is amazingly talented in his respective specialization.

Late last month, i received news frm a mutual friend of ours, Dominic that Brian's being diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. My heart sunk upon hearing it...and immediately i know there is no one i could turned to for help except God. cause, one thing for sure, the Lord has been very kind to me last year. He listens, and answers your prayers....and thats one thing for sure. Since then, Brian and I have been constantly in touch via sms and believe it or not, i do send him a daily bible verse every afternoon without fail till today....which i received these verses via an application on facebook daily. I take it as God's daily message to me....and probably God would wanna speak to him through me....well, thats how i think...but at least it comforts me.=)

Pancreatic cancer is a silent killer, it affects ppl i personally know, my dear uncle, Hollywood actor the late Patrick Swayze whom all have fell victim to this cancer. Is a "disease" in which by the time u have experienced the symptoms of it, its already at the later stage and chemotherapy would only be the only option. Because surgery normally (if found out later)would not be able to remove the tumour, blocking arteries and have already spread to other parts of the body. Brian's case was similar and it does hurt me deeply for waking up daily knowing that the options are little.

Brian is one of the most hardworking, energetic and inspiring musician / friend i have ever known. You can never see the tiredness in his eyes therefore i could understand the admiration and respect his students has for him. Even when i visited him yesterday evening at his place. His positive mindset and happy go lucky attitude in battling this cancer really left me speechless.. It made me think twice of the little obstacles we face everyday.. and sometimes, being frustrated easily because we cant get a simple thing done...But seeing Brian so strong and in return convince me that he will be strong and fight this through cause we still plan to work and perform together in my upcoming concert series and have many more late night suppers when he gets better, despite losing much weight due to the surgery.

I never regard my blog as a superbly commercial blog because as you can see frm my previous post, i only speak about my music...However this time, i would like to Urge each and everyone of you as readers of of my blog..., to just please Pray for this dear friend of mine, Brian, that he will fight and win this battle against Pancreas Cancer.

Yesterday morning in Church, a friend of mine, King Wai recommended me this blog who is about a lady who has stage 4 lung cancer and managed to survive till today. Thus, motivates me to further believe that all things are possible...and a miraculous miracle might happen very soon.=)

Below are a few verses which i find it extremely meaningful frm her blog:

Psalm 57:1

1 Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me,
for in you my soul takes refuge.
I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings
until the disaster has passed.

Isaiah 41:10

10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Proverbs 3:1-2

1 My son, do not forget my teaching,
but keep my commands in your heart,
2 for they will prolong your life many years
and bring you prosperity.

Psalm 51:2-4 (New International Version)

2 Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is always before me.
4 Against you, you only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in your sight,
so that you are proved right when you speak
and justified when you judge.

Brian said that after many years of hardwork, its time for him to take a Vacation, to treat this cancer. He says he treats this cancer as a friend and all he can do right now is to speak to his new found "friend" of him to go away as soon as possible. Its true and indeed very inspiring.

So dear readers and friends of my nimble fingers blog, once again I'm here asking you a favor to join the army and pls pray for Brian Tan for his speedy road to recovery, pray that the doctors in Singapore would try their very best and for the chemotherapy to destroy the cancer cells. You wouldn't know how much a little time of yours would help in giving him the encouragement and determination to win this battle! May God Bless you, Brian....and all of you too.=)

Thank You~

God Bless!
