One of the main thrills of Digital project management is overcoming four main challenges; they are being on track and delivering on time, to specifications and within budget. It has been such a pleasure developing the Android App for the 1inmusic.com magazine. This is not just because it was done natively. It is also because it takes full advantage of the mobility and the practicality and the high availability of mobile. Particularly, it offers features beyond the limits of a website. Typical ezine features are present. Courses and quizzes are also available. On top of that, we are developing more complex games for future versions. We indeed hope to provide music lovers with a truly 1inMusic experience.
The currently available version 1.1 is released as a beta version. This allows us to welcome comments and suggestions and refine what we have. There are still a lot of placeholders in the app. This is for feedback we are hoping to receive, most of which regarding any concerns over the principles and mechanism behind the app. You can download the 1inmusic Android app right now from Google Play at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oneInMusic.OneInMusic. I am super excited about the positive comments and encouragements already received. We are all certainly looking forward to more suggestions and feedback about your personal preferences on the Mobile App!
You will find music interviews, music reviews, music theory quizzes (including interactive audio, graphic and text as well as scoring and feedback). Just check out some of the screenshots below. Some of the things to come include music history, somgwriting and a lot more.
Silence Movie Translation from French to English. Although the film has no dialogues, a number of written parts required translation which we were privileged to assist with.
About the film Silence, stylised $ILENC€
$ILENC€ is an independent short film from multiple award-winning director Glad Amog Lemra and lasts 16 minutes. The film is self-produced by both Glad Amog Lemra and Florence Elomo Akoa. Glad Amog deliberately chose the non-dialogue to express his loss for words towards a situation that continues after independence as well as to give viewers the freedom to analyze for themselves. The African director of Congolese origin wanted to stage the massacre in Africa during the various presidential elections in recent months. Because, beyond the killings of thousands, it is the despair of many generations of Africans who, since the independence of the 1960s, continue to be the victims of coups, killings and civil wars.

Translation of Silence
3E Web Media was called upon for the translation from French to English of the film text including quotations from celebrated freedom fighters Franklin Boukaka and Lumumba.
Korlan Music is the project that we have been involved with, about getting the works of Kazakh musician Korlan and her brand of sensitivity and genius out there.
Korlan was a pianist and composer who epitomised creativity, expressing the beauty and purity of nature and childhood in her musical pieces. Her talent borded on genius as she incessantly produced new material as nature urgently inspired, and remembering everything she made up without ever transcribing it or writing it up!
In memory of her legacy and for the benefit of those who were in effect her muse, the Korlan Music organisation wanted to set up a website that showcased her music but also a series of contests and activities that introduced her music to the next generations with an opportunity to harness their own creativity and win a suite of prizes that encourages them further in the pursuit of excellence in artistic self-expression.
