Profile Information

Tell us a little about your background...
Nicolas Farmakalidis
Producer/Composer/Arranger/Engineer

Nicolas Farmakalidis has an extensive background as a top-notch musician and award-winning composer. His wealth of musical knowledge paired with his unique musical perceptions that go behind mere `black dots` and wave forms has landed him producer and programming credits on an array of albums, ranging from the styles of Pop (EMI-artist Aika), Rock (Megadeth lead guitarist Marty Friedman), Jazz (The Thelonius Monk Institue, award winning Jazz piano player Romain Collin { Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter})and Hip Hop (EJ Labb {Boston Music Awards} )

"Nicolas Farmakalidis, born December 3rd 1981, started taking piano lessons at the age of 5. Right away his teacher noticed that Nicolas had the rare gift of absolute pitch perception, which allowed him to acquire an extended knowledge of advanced musical concepts in harmony, arranging and composition at a very precocious age. After 12 years of dedicated studies, Nicolas earned a degree in classical music. However, always in search of new harmonies and sonorities, he started developing a growing interest for more modern approaches to music, studying jazz in its chronological integrity with John Savvides, eventually leading to his being discovered during a Berklee clinic led by reknown Paul Schmelling (Chair of the Piano Department at Berklee College Of Music) and invited to attend the school with a scholarship. While at Berklee Nicolas tutored students in ear training, arranging, Harmony, Composition, Music Technology.

Nicolas has a B.A in Jazz Composition and a B.A in Music Production and Engineering.

Nicolas has been producing, writing, arranging and engineering for independent and major labels as well as individuals. He worked with many artists such as Aika (EMI music Japan/True Blue), Ayaka Hirahara (Dreamusic Japan), Romain Collin (The Theonious Monk Institute – Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, George Duke),EJ Labb, Oli Rockberger, Discovery Sound amongst others.

Nicolas is producing/arranging/writing and mixing many different music styles such as Jazz, R&B, Hip Hop, Pop, acoustic, electronic. His production of Aika's "Ai-Wo" earned a top 10 in the Japanese Radio Charts and also one of his hip hop pieces was the opening act of the Boston Music Awards 2006.

Nicolas owns a production company. Neilaproductions, always looking to work with new people.

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!
