100 Songs in 7 Days; Veronica Vitale and Patrick Hamilton Create a New Music Color Science

100 songs composed in less than 7 days. It’s the latest music experiment by Artists and Producers Veronica Vitale and Patrick Hamilton.

Los Angeles, CA – USA | February 10, 2021 — 100 songs composed in less than 7 days. It’s the latest music experiment by Artists and Producers Veronica Vitale and Patrick Hamilton. Prismatic dojo “The All Colors theory” is a contemporary experiment between color gradients and music frequencies brought together to heal the mind and soul. Every volume collects the tales of different shades of color. Every piece of music was composed in a room filled with color changing screens and LED lights to provide a variety of colors to change the vibe of the room completely. The word “Dojo” literally means “Place of the Way” in Japanese. It’s a hall or a place for immersive learning and meditation.

Prismatic Dojo is an original spontaneously performed musical masterpiece, recorded live without any pre-existing score or prior rehearsal. It’s a journey and a work of art that starts right at the door of the Soul’s Chambers and fits perfectly in the field of positive psychology. Artist Veronica Vitale and Patrick Hamilton head straight for “the zone” an area that people only enter when their passion sets them into a euphoric trance. In this place you experience the flow state where an artist talent is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus. The artist is fully involved, and immersed in the essence of the “flow”; characterized by the complete absorption in what one does, and often resulting in the transformation of one’s sense of time – while truly enjoying in the process of the activity. Prismatic Dojo is familiar to the Chromesthesia Concept but different in understanding how rather than a color influence on an already existing sound how this color itself influences the production of a complete new music of music. Simply put, rather than sensory influence, how does it effect sensory creation.

“To understand anything non-physical, one needs a certain level of creativity and imagination. Frequencies are hard to see but easy to feel” – says Artist Veronica Vitale.

“ One way to understand the Universe is in terms of energy and frequency. We wanted to explore how a specific color in the room would influence not only the performer but also the human psyche. Can the resulting sound influence the feeling of color even when it is absent to the listener ” – says Artist Patrick J Hamilton

Italian Recording Artist and Producer Veronica Vitale together with American Musician and Film Director Patrick J Hamilton are both advocates of the theory of quantum consciousness and the idea that various systems (e.g. physical, biological, social) should be viewed as wholes, not merely as a collection of parts.

“While recording, We were walking through some sort of dream, an alternative reality, Music of an almost other-worldly beauty brought us in this spiritual world made of fantasy, dreams, where everything is possible” – says Veronica Vitale

Prismatic Dojo is recorded as a whole concept but divided in 2 minutes track and presented to you like a passage, chapters. From night to dawn, form red to blue, from Celtic ancient ages and old legends to whales floating in deep oceans. From tales of star-crossed lovers and exile, to soldiers singing Gregorian chants and hymns like Hail Holy Queen ( “Salve Regina” )

Some of the Healing Frequencies In this Music Work:

•    174 Hz relieves pain and stress.

•    285 Hz heals tissues and organs.

•    396 Hz liberates you from fear and guilt.

•    417 Hz facilitates change.

•    528 Hz for transformation and DNA repair.

War went on to callab with major artists such as Capone of CNN, Mistah F.A.B and Styles P.

The next move for War was in television, his music was used on countless Reality TV shows such as Paris Hilton’s The World According to Paris, Girlfriend Confidential: LA on Oxygen, and MTV’s Caged. He scored exclusive sit-down interviews with DK Kay Slay on Shade 45, The Source Magazine, and a major BET Network interview with Angela Yee of The Breakfast Club.

EMMY WINNERS GIVE KUDOS TO THECGBROS CGINSIDER PODCAST

Using an Animated Avatar of Himself, Digital Media Professional, Bill Johnston, Co-founder of the Popular TheCGBros YouTube Channel, Earns Praise for His Performance in a Video Podcast Preview Provided to a Special Panel of Members of the Voice Acting Academy.

SAN DIEGO, CA, 2021-Jan-06 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — TheCGBros, a Third-party aggregation YouTube Channel becoming an integral part of many short films’ release strategies, conducted a highly successful beta test of the first episode of their now-in-production podcast series, TheCGBros CGInsider Podcast. Bill Johnston, co-founder of TheCGBros YouTube Channel with his brother, Shaun Johnston, delivered the program content solo, in “talking head” format, but future episodes will see participation from Shaun and from influential guests, as well. Of special interest is that, although Bill spoke as himself, he did it through the novel medium of an animated avatar, possibly a first in the industry. The avatar was designed and executed by co-founder, Shaun Johnston.

The program content is intended for consumption by people with a wide variety of tastes and interests, especially fans of short videos. The subject matter will also be of general interest to students of CGI as well as both entry-level and professionals in the field. The premiere episode in the podcast series was released to the public on TheCGBros YouTube Channel at Midnight January 5, 2021. The series will be rolled out on other streaming platforms weekly on Tuesdays.

The test episode, which runs approximately 20 minutes long, is entitled “What is CGI?” Podcast titles scheduled for the remainder of January include: “Can You Describe the Different Jobs That Relate to Creating a CGI Film,” “Are There Examples of Current CGI in Films That Are So Well Done That They are Undetectable?” and “How Can I Get a Job in Gaming?”

The venue used for the test was an online weekly meeting of the Voice Acting Academy’s “Conductors Club” (VAACC.) The VAACC is a membership support service open to voiceover talent at all levels of experience for the purpose of helping them to advance their voiceover career and to help them get more work. Membership in the VAACC includes weekly live coaching sessions directed by Voiceover Guru, James Alburger, who says that the monthly cost of membership is a lot less than the usual cost of a single hour of private coaching. ConductorsClub sessions are conducted using Zoom, a cloud-based peer-to-peer software platform app that allows virtual video and audio conferencing, webinars, live chats, screen-sharing, and other collaborative capabilities. Information on VAACC is available at https://voiceacting.com/conductorsclub.

The test involved a three-member panel of long-time members of the VAACC. Participating in the test were James Alburger, Tom Daniels, and George Asteri. Senior member of the panel, James Alburger, of San Diego, author of the book commonly used as a required text in college-level voiceover classes, “The Art of Voice Acting,” now in its 6th edition, asserted, “That’s really nice. Very interesting, very thorough, very effective.” Alburger is an 11-Time Emmy® Winner for Sound Design, and owner of The Voice Acting Academy and CIGMA Media. He is also an Engineer, Voice Acting Coach, and Executive Producer/Director for Film, Video, and other media. Alburger operates the websites VoiceActing.com and at cigmamedia.com. Panelist Tom Daniels averred, “That was awesome. Very informative and entertaining. It held my attention all the way through. What surprised me most was that the first use of computer generated imagery dates all the way back to 1958 in the Alfred Hitchcock film, Vertigo.” Daniels is an Emmy®-winning Voice Actor/Executive Producer who lives in Massillon, Ohio. You can listen to Tom’s sound demos here TomDanielsVoiceDemos and reach him at tomdanielsvoice@gmail.com. The third member of the panel, George Asteri, opined, “That was an excellent summary and gave a really good understanding of CGI. It really informed me.” Asteri, who lives in Saginaw, Michigan, has been acting for his entire life. As a Shakespearean trained actor, Asteri has performed on stage with such notable stars as Christopher Walken in Richard II, and Nicholas Pennell in Richard III. He has also played leading roles in many stage plays, including Shakespeare’s Hamlet. As a voice actor, Asteri has voiced national, local and cable commercials, shared his narration talent with a large Michigan school district film production, narrated for audiobooks, and has made several recordings for Internet clients. Asteri operates a website at https://www.GeorgeAsteri.com where he has provided his email address and telephone number.

Bill, when asked to describe his company’s vision for entering the wildly-expanding, somewhat chaotic podcast marketplace responded, “Well, we believe that mounting up a podcast series not only continues, but builds on our long-standing mission, which from Day-One has been to curate the highest quality professional-level CG content from around the world, as well as to provide insights and inspiration to our two main constituencies: the producers of video content and the consumers of that content. Simply stated, we help the second group — the consumers — by providing them with high quality video content, and we help the first group — the producers of video content — or as we call them,‘New Media Producers,’ by providing them access to a ‘destination site’ where members of the second group can come and discover their works. And by destination, we mean, specifically, a proven, well-established place, with a great reputation for streaming quality videos, where people who love our content know they can come to see outstanding videos that were created with the ‘blood, sweat, and tears’ suffering (not to mention loss-of-sleep) of artists with great talent but with little-to-no prospects to obtain timely significant Media Reach on their own. The proof is in the pudding — as we speak, we have more than 3.5 Million subscribers to our channel; that number is increasing by approximately 40,000 per month, and we are averaging more than 20 million views per month. And, we’ve aggregated almost 1.25 Billion views since we launched our channel. These statistics don’t tell the whole story, of course, but they put us, according to SocialBlade, the social media statistics website that tracks and measures growth, near the top 4,000 in YouTube subscriber ranking and near the top 3,000 in YouTube video view ranking.”

Responding to a further question, “How, specifically, will your podcast series contribute to the accomplishment of your mission,” Johnston explained, “As a forward-looking company in the entertainment business, we’re always on the alert to detect changes that are happening in the entertainment marketplace. What we’ve seen is a growing trend that people want more engagement with great Internet sites that they have gotten to know and have grown to love. Given the rapid increase in the number of podcasts available in the marketplace, we figured a podcast would be a great way, not only to meet our fans’ desires for a higher level of engagement with us, it would also be a great way for us to enhance the value we can add to providing curated videos to our viewers. We are also creating the company infrastructure necessary to support a fan club. We think that will provide even more of the engagement
that fans want.”

Bill Johnston is an established Digital Media Professional with 22 years of experience, the last 18 years within the console-gaming industry. There, he has been involved in Creative Direction/Supervision, Project/Team Management, Dynamic Simulations, and Fluid Dynamics involving Rigid Bodies and Soft Bodies, Particles, and Sprites. He has also managed the production of cinematic FX animation for industry leaders such as Activision/Blizzard, Sony Computer Entertainment of America, and Bungie. He has specialized in in-depth work in the areas of Pre-Visualization, Pre-Rendered FX/Cinematic Cut-Scenes, Promotional Projects and Real-Time Future-Gen FX for Game Environments. Johnston has worked on more than 45 AAA game titles played on personal computers, as well as on Sony’s Playstation, and Microsoft’s Xbox consoles. The titles include, among others, game series such as the CALL OF DUTY,DESTINY, RESISTANCE, UNCHARTED 2, LAIR, WARHAWK, GOD OF WAR, and SOCOM 3. He is currently working on another high-profile game franchise creating FUTURE-GEN FX for next-gen Platforms.

Shaun Johnston is a professional CGI artist and animator in the video games industry with over 27 years of experience, with a broad background in creating 3D animation including previsualization, VFX, and cinematic sequences for PC and Console game trailers, and in-game Cut-Scenes. Today, he is a full-time 3D Animator.

MtB Entertainment Will Release New Single From Marcus Christ Called “If I Die Tonight” This Month

New Commercial Single to be released from MtB Entertainment’s artist Marcus Christ Called “If I Die Tonight” for Worldwide Distribution.

Los Angeles, CA, USA — MtB Entertainment has just announced they have finalized the global distribution of Marcus Christ‘s new single titled “If I Die Tonight”. This is the second single released by MtB Entertainment this year. Marcus Christ’s debut album called “Return of the Beast” was released commercially in 2015. I Get High on the Most High is the first single from the upcoming album “Prince of the Universe” that is expected Winter of 2017. “If I Die Tonight” is the follow up single to “I Get High on the Most High”, and the second single from the upcoming “Prince of the Universe” album. MtB Entertainment released a video for “I Get High on the Most High” a week ago on YouTube. At this time no release date has been set for the video for the new single “If I Die Tonight”. Marcus Christ was scheduled for 2 shows this year in L.A., but was taken off the performance list after low ticket sales. This new single already promises to showcase MtB Entertainment’s artist vast array of talent.

The new single “If I Die Tonight” was produced by Dj Exclusive Beatz, and this producer was not expected to produce any of Marcus Christ’s music since MtB Entertainment has been producing a few compositions lately since it has access to in-house production which reduce costs and increase profits. However, this new song has already created a buzz. MtB Entertainment is not expecting record breaking sales, but they do expect improvement.

National Black Gospel Sheet Music Source Is Now Available

It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore is one of the few sources of black gospel sheet music for musicians.

Landover, MD, USA — It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore (http://www.igccb.com) is now one of the largest sources of Black Gospel sheet music in the country. There are very few places where musicians can go to purchase Black Gospel sheet music because very few stores have been able to find a distribution channel that will provide the music. It’s God’s Choice has found several sources of Black Gospel and is providing it to church musicians and others nationwide and internationally.

“As a musician and a music teacher, I’m a witness to the fact that there aren’t many places where a musician can go in a store or online to find up-to-date Black Gospel sheet music. There are some songbooks that are available but not much in sheet music. It takes a lot of time learning and then teaching a new song to the church choir. It adds to the process when you have to transcribe the music first. With sheet music, the music is already written out which saves lots of time,” said Carolyn Walker, former church musician and current music buyer for the bookstore. “It’s God’s Choice is a blessing to gospel music lovers everywhere with over a thousand titles available,” said Thelma Lee.

The Black Gospel sheet music repertoire represent songs that have been sung by such famous singers as: Shirley Caesar, Fred Hammond, Richard Smallwood, Anthony Brown, William Murphy, Hezekiah Walker, Tasha Cobbs, Mississippi Mass Choir, Ricky Dillard, Martha Munizzi, Donald Lawrence, Charles Jenkins and many other well-known gospel singers, choirs and groups.

In 2002, It’s God’s Choice Christian Bookstore was founded by Thelma Lee, a former employee of Rejoice Christian Bookstore and who has over 15 years of experience in this field. It’s God’s Choice specializes in special orders and carries black gospel CDs, sheet music, songbooks, piano instructional books, bibles, books, greeting cards, gifts, church supplies, tambourines, and children items. In addition, the store special orders pastoral and choir robes. The store is now located at 7838 Central Avenue, Landover, MD 20785 inside D’s Hairstylist. Those items that are not in the store can probably be found at the website, which is http://www.igccb.com. For further information, please call Thelma Lee at 301-499-5799.

Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) Produces Exquisite Debut EP for New Australian Indie Duo, Secret Solis, with Terepai Richmond (The Whitlams) on the Drums

Adelaide, Australia, 2017-May-18 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Between sold out tours of Australia and Canada in 2016, Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) invited new Australian indie folk / rock duo Secret Solis to record their debut EP, “Deep Down” at River House Studios near Byron Bay. The sessions produced a five track album of indie folk / rock anthems, the tracks resonating with both Led Zeppelin’s driving acoustic rock and the ethereal ballads of Pink Floyd. Jeff’s eastern palette adds an eclectic flavour to the EP that is reminiscent of his early albums with The Tea Party, as in Splendor Solis and Edges of Twilight. Terepai Richmond (The Whitlams) joins the line up on drums providing a John Bonham / Ginger Baker style foundation for the albums songs.

When asked to describe the project Martin says “I have been waiting for years to produce a sound like this at River House Studios. Of all the production work I have done over the last 25 years, including my work with The Tea Party, Secret Solis’ EP “Deep Down” is in the top five of work that I am most proud of.”

Secret Solis was formed in 2012 when established Cairns-based singer/songwriter, Kian Eder met Cally Pysden, a pianist and singer/songwriter from Adelaide. Before meeting Cally, Kian’s music was heavily influenced by Pink Floyd, The Tea Party, A Perfect Circle, and acoustic rock cross-over artists like Ben Harper. Collaborating with Cally added a new dimension to Kian’s vision, elevating the music to new heights with her soaring ethereal vocals the likes of Enya, Dido, Sia and Amy-Lee. Enter Jeff Martin as producer and musician using production techniques straight out of Jimmy Page’s playbook, and Terepai Richmond (The Whitlams) on drums and you have a special magic happening in the mix.

Martin agreed to produce the band after hearing only a small section of their demo, “Speechless Soul” and the rest is history. Jeff plays all the heavy guitars and solos, hurdy gurdy and synths including his boutique theremin. He also lends his voice to the band’s debut single, “Sunshine”. The second single, “Are You Listening?” features Jeff playing an old school rock solo unlike many have ever heard.

Both singles are now available at secretsolis.bandcamp.com

When asked what the songs are about Kian says “The songs are based on our personal experiences but ultimately we are aiming to create relatable themes that resonate with everyone. We want this music to heal, uplift and empower people to face and overcome the many challenges of life as our favourite music has done for us.”

The Debut EP “Deep Down” will be released via bandcamp on the 16th of June, 2017.

Secret Solis are currently seeking expressions of interest from record labels, managers and booking agents to take the project to the next level.
