Ian Charles Bouras is a guitarist and producer from New York City.
Since receiving his audio engineering degree, Ian has produced, mixed, and played guitar and bass on records in all genres from rock to spoken word, and is now working as a freelance audio engineer.
Ian produced, played guitar, bass, and mixed AñaVañA’s second release entitled "R*U*B" (2005), which was called: “Sophisticated and musically brilliant… a magnetic hybrid of music… a refreshing 2nd full length record… a distinct sound-from shy to outright strident” --- RACHEL ROKICKI (The Deli Magazine)
His first solo release on SDMP Records, entitled “A Cure For Reality” (2007), has Ian producing, playing guitar, keys, bass, programming drums, and mixing, and earned him attention from music fans and critics alike: “A surprisingly unique and fresh sound. Artists like this are responsible for the evolution of musical genres." --- Blips and Beeps
Ian's second release was, "By Company They Mean Me", and is the only "digital-only" release for SDMP Records, and is described as "epic orchestral music with classical guitars", a unique blend of electronic and live music.
His newest release, "The Certainty Of Being Found", finds Ian experimenting further with the mix of dub reggae with spanish and classical guitars. There are also 6 guitar interludes, which clearly show the emotion that Ian puts into his music.
Ian is continuing work as an engineer on several projects to be released throughout 2010, and is in pre-production for his next solo offering.
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."
