To what extent does one go through in life?
This is how it all began.
As the Mitochondria band today reassemble and muster up the energy to rekindle that passion-driven fire within them to revive their original compositions.
Renewed efforts of getting themselves together again however, would be nothing but futile if an ensemble goes on without the necessary musical instruments to channel their musical creations.
Having left with no amplifiers or stringed instruments now the band is out to find new sets of gear and equipment.
But such a call to arms wouldn’t mean it’ll cost one a leg or an arm, that is, in acquiring instruments it doesn’t mean it has to be high-end implements.
So let me tell you a short story, a real Mitochondria story entitled, “Guitar Craze: The Quest For Musical Instruments.”
It’s a story about what two band members had to go through as they travel around in a craze that came out of the blue.
Now, I shall have to take you back with me in time to the year Two thousand and seven when the band was at its year eleven.
It was a warm summer day when members, Danzoy and Ckinzki, first set out on a quest in search for their quarry.
So on their bike they took a ride, heading east through the countryside. Withstanding dust and heat, the beautiful countryside was the treat.
Following directions and clues like the Amazing race, Alas! they found a beautiful bass.
Since that first find thereafter it all started and almost all Churches using musical instruments in Iligan City and neighboring towns they visited.
Asking fellow musicians, friends, and strangers they even dropped by the homes of studio owners.
In their efforts they never let-up and once they got lucky to get a whole band set-up.
As their acquisition turned to buying damaged or junked instruments, somehow they needed someone to fix them worn out equipment’s.
Upon hearing of an Iligan City good luthier they ended up selling junk bottles, plastics, and metals so the master can fix their hoarded gear.
In this former search for used band equipment’s, to great lengths the two went in their procurement.
Because having a thing for used musical instruments for the two, that time, meant disregarding any impediments.
GAS up! It’s going to be a fun ride once again.
