Hopefully you are having a great and productive day and keeping warm in this cold winter season (for those of us in the chilly part of the country). The constant freezing temperature definitely has a bite but it’s almost over and soon comes spring! It has been a great start to 2011…I have been keeping busy with 2 new CD Releases as well as taking some new online classes, and working in the field of Audio Engineering from time to time. Hoping and working towards a great, positive and productive new year! Hoping the best for you as well!
I’ve recently been watching the American Film Institutes (AFI) “100 Greatest Movies of All Time”. I started with “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962) and saw why the movie won 7 Academy Awards. Never mind that the movie is almost 4 hours long, the story itself is great! Check it out when you have a chance!
Currently Listening to:
It has been awhile since a singer on the radio really caught my attention and made me sit back and really take notice. That singer ladies and gentlemen is Peter Gene Hernandez or better known as “Bruno Mars”.
His songs “Just The Way You Are” and more specifically “Grenade” are reflections of what some of my feelings were when I first started out in the music Industry. I really like his vocals...a soothing distinct mellow sound that made me an instant fan with great songwriting to back it up! If you haven’t heard him…please check him out! He is a recent Grammy Winner at the recently held 53rd Grammy Awards Ceremony.
How about you? What's in your CD player? Email me back or tweet me…I would like to hear your response! @alfonsotellezjr
Things are going great with my music. I’ve started 2 new CD projects for 2011. One is a Classical and the other is “Film/Soundtrack/Action Packed/Percussion Driven” type of CD. <genre/style description a bit long =P>
I’ve also started some courses in orchestration for both sampled (digital) orchestra as well as Live orchestral performances.
To help with my studying I’ve been listening to a lot of Classical pieces. Everything from Beethoven, Bizet, Debussy to Holst, Mahler and Tchaikovsky.
This will take some time but is something I feel is necessary with the development of my works presently and into the future.
Thank you for reading and have a great day!
