Where is the artistic passion? Thoughts on passion in society

On my blog post yesterday, my friend Righini had commented in part: […] i notice how much love you put in everything you do from writings to music, and i’m amazed and my heart feels warmed! What’s your secret root? Where do you take all this strength? I started to write a really, really long… Continue reading Where is the artistic passion? Thoughts on passion in society

Some new AdamMusic (and some highlights from music past)

I’ve been quite-rightly bugged by some of my friends to play more piano. So yesterday, I stayed at work late (actually ’til nearly 2am!) and banged out some stuff on the now slightly-out-of-tune-but-still-serviceable grand piano in one of the lobbies, filmed with my slightly-old-and-suboptimal-video-recording camera, and documented in this run-on-but-still-comprehensible sentence. The first bit is… Continue reading Some new AdamMusic (and some highlights from music past)

Cirque du Soleil’s "O" show in Las Vegas – my review

So what did I think of Cirque du Soleil’s show “O”? Absolutely beautiful.  I think my mouth was open most of the time, and I’m glad there weren’t flies about (just people flying, and they’re bigger.  And sexier.  And waterproof, apparently!) One of my friends that attended with me joked (okay, somewhat lamely) that the… Continue reading Cirque du Soleil’s "O" show in Las Vegas – my review

Pandora Mobile highlights awesomeness but also severe lame-itude

Do you know Pandora?  If you’re in the United States, where Pandora is legally available, you may have come to enjoy this awesome uber-customizable music radio over the past years.  If you’re not in the U.S., perhaps you’ve discovered the beauty of anonymous proxies :cough:, which I’m not going to mention here :p. But perhaps… Continue reading Pandora Mobile highlights awesomeness but also severe lame-itude

A music solution that’s so brilliant, no wonder why the music industry has shunned it

The other day I got a (yet another) piece of inbox spam on the otherwise cool service last.fm.  And no good can come from spam, right? Not sure what got into me, but I actually went to the site (which I’ll not name, so as to not potentially give them any customers).  And you know… Continue reading A music solution that’s so brilliant, no wonder why the music industry has shunned it

A cappella birthday silliness — much of it composed by me

Back in high school, I was not only a band geek, but a choir geek as well!  But I did far more than just sing your standard choral music :-D.  I loved composing, arranging and teaching, and often performing short songs in vocal quartets, and I founded my very own singing telegram business (“The Birthday… Continue reading A cappella birthday silliness — much of it composed by me

Help me raise money for music-in-schools!

Hey there, I’m passionate about music, and I bet you are, too.  I’m even more excited about giving kids the opportunity to have their lives enriched through music… especially disadvantaged kids who so desperately need beauty, discipline, and ART in their lives! I just learned today that one of my all-time favorite music sites, Pandora,… Continue reading Help me raise money for music-in-schools!
