Behind you…

is a theme.

…a sound.

…a message.

…a metaphor.

Ahead of you is all possibility.

Under your feet and at your fingertips is all opportunity.

Catch this…What’s behind us and what’s ahead of us at some point is going to be a here and a now.

Don’t miss it.

The Choice

There are many, but THE CHOICE that will predict the experience that is heard, felt, and seen and the story that unfolds with you and your music will you be whether you choose to be an artist or whether you choose karaoke.

Here, this is free. Did you know that karaoke is two Japanese words put together: empty (kara) and oke (orchestra)?

You can be an empty orchestra or a full symphony.

Your choice.

And this choice makes ALL the DIFFERENCE in your world and the world of others.

Rule #1 of Labels

Make sure they can peel off.

When the true essence of what the label is stuck to is introduced to us, more often than not, the name on the label will change as well.

It only took me 32 years to know broccoli by flavor and not by name.

The music is the experience that is heard, felt, and seen and the story that unfolds when one’s divine identity, core conscience, God giftings, core beliefs and core values come together, come alive, and crescendo in the universe we exist in. Ashton Gustafson

The border between music and noise is always culturally defined
—which implies that, even within a single society, this border does not always pass through the same place;
in short, there is rarely a consensus …
By all accounts there is no single and intercultural universal concept defining what music might be. Jean-Jacques Nattiez

The greatest tragedy in America is not the destruction of our natural resources, though that tragedy is great. The truly great tragedy is the destruction of our human resources by our failure to fully utilize our abilities, which means that most men and women go to their graves with their music still in them. Oliver Wendell Holmes
