Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

As an engineer, I have a computer studio running Nuendo (Can import and export to multiple formats) infinite tracking capability, I have great mics and plugins. I do voice-over and re-record dates for film/video and broadcast.

As editor I do non linear editing on the PC and I have HD capability and produce commercials for the boat industry. I compose for TV & Film, arrange music, produce music, pre production.

I have done side-lining on TV and in film. made various records... I can work via the internet or in person.

Hey all. I am just about finished my current recording project. All instruments played by musicians other than myself were done via internet. I can't explain how exciting it is to do a project this way. Often times as Artists or Producers, we get locked into a concept and will not be that open to the ideas of other musicians as freely as we should. I was pleasantly surprised with many of the ideas that came from these great and talented musicians who participated in this project. Most of my expectations and concepts were taken to another level and beyond. As both Artist and Producer, this did require a lot of trust on my part; but choosing the right cats paid off big time. Some cats were paid, but most of us bartered. For those of you who have the facility to work this way, I highly recommend it. If you need any suggestions on who to call for what, I might be able to help you find the right cat for the session. Also, I urge you to post what your strengths are on this group so we can all get a feel for what it is you do. This is the wave of the present and into the future. We can keep ourselves working by continuing to adapt and evolve to our ever changing industry.
