Why are MP3 the biggest music industry scam ever

Imagine you could fool the entire world into thinking that PRODUCT X is the real deal and have them pay FULL PRICE for something that has been watered down 10 times. Would you do it? Would you sell a bottle that says "100% pure organic orange juice" knowing that the product is actually only 10% orange juice and 90% water? Wouldn't you be angry if y...

Argentina is hanging by a thread

How can one explain the complex and burdensome situation that Argentina is going through? History has shown that Juan Domingo Perón was a nazi sympathiser but in the 70's his party was taken over by a group of communists that had a plan to destroy the country. Back in 1945, Argentina was in the top 10 economies in the word. Perón drained the countr...

Can you see how Standard Tuning links to Nazis and Numerology?

We all know and have experienced the power of music and sound one way or another. We all know that MUSIC can help us or bring us down to tears because it alters our emotions. But maybe that's not where it all ends. You probably already know that we, as human beings, have four identifiable bodies: Spiritual, Intellectual, Emotional, and Physical. If...

Can acupuncture really improve your performance levels?

Maybe you have no intention of stabbing yourself with acupuncture needles... let alone pay someone else to do it for you! Yet... maybe you need to try it. Acupuncture is a technique that observes the body as a whole. There are several meridians/channels that run through the body. Each meridian has a certain number of points. Every point has a ...

Wishing you now sing with Freddie till the end of times

Yesterday, some sad news came our way in the world of music, opera, and queen fanatics. The great amazing soprano Monsterrat Caballé died at age 85 after having built a strong stable legacy. I personally mourn her death as her career, music, technique, and style was an inspiration for me at many levels. Particularly, her work wi...

I became an expert... so I had to publish immediately

Writing a book seemed to be a hard core task. Honestly... it is... unless the book writes itself. If you remember my story, you probably remember that I started writing "Music at First Sight" back in November 2015. The problem is that I had setup myself on a project that was far larger than I was. Music at First Sight in other words was a project t...

As you were, as I want you to be...

If you did not live the 90's and need to know an important fact about them, simply remember Kurt Cobain is the man who saved the world. His fake suicide on April 5th 1994 was a tragedy but probably also a necessity in the life of a martyr. Kurt spoke many fundamental truths through his music, his interviews, and his way of life. But you p...

When Dee Snider spanked Tipper Gore right in Al's face

Judging a book by its cover is wrong. I am writing this article because I find this to be a very good metaphor to help understand what is wrong with the world. We are told constantly what to do and what to think instead of listening and making up our mind. Dee Snider made a stance in 1985, the year I was born. Music and lyrics are a mirro...

Never heard of Sherwood? Mason will make you never forget!

Sherwood is a small city south west of Portland that is finally showing up on the map. For the past 20 years, this area has grown mainly because of the wine industry and now, it has grown to have 20.000 people. The community of this small town is very appealing and the overall vibe is very mellow and inviting. However, there's a gem in the cit...

This winery is here... why are you not?

Humboldt County in California has a reputation for many things. Yes, up here, there's redwoods and there's ocean. And yes, I must say that those two are quite charming (expecially for an outdoors fanatic like I am). However, if you know anything about me, I will say the very opposite of what is popular and mainstream. Why should you come ...

How can your coffee make you absolutely bulletproof?

Coffee is the elixir that keeps the world turning every day. Historically, this amazing beverage has been around for about one thousand years but the 20th century is responsible for bringing the product to our daily life. The short story is that in between 1907 and 1936, coffee production from Adis Abeba skyrocketed from 500,000lbs to 18,...

This man is from another planet

Musicians tend to have a personality that is a bit eccentric. Personally, I find it to be a double edge sword because it can harm as much as it can make a contribution. The big names in pop music tend to have that issue... like Freddie Mercury’s drag queen approach to sexuality or Michael Jackson and his obsession with his white skin and ...

Left-handed, Upside Down & Top of the world

​Do I really need to introduce Jimi Hendrix to any of you? What is the right way to show respect without getting anyone upset for not saying all the things that need to be said or saying too many things? It would be impossible to satisfy everyone with a brief memorial blog post about one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. T...

How to maximize your productivity without multitasking

Technology is a blessing and a curse. We are constantly surrounded by an infinite number of manmade things that invade our space and our time. To be sincere, we have all bought into the magic word of connectivity. It is common knowledge that the internet is a double edge sword just like any kind of communication technology. Because of our desire to...

Playing everywhere! But the most rewarding gigs are Wineries!

As a touring musician, my favorite route is the I-5 Corridor that stretches from Bellingham, WA to San Diego, CA. Even though I have not done a complete run through the entire corridor in one sitting, I have been in all the places and cities that interest me the most. In my tours, I have played in weddings, restaurants, coffee shops, parks, auditor...

Memorial Day Donizetti

​Gaetano Donizetti was an Italian composer who had a strong opinion about war and very passionate about love. All of his operas (Both Serious and Comic) touch one or both topics at the same time to make a statement that the Love is far more important than Life. Today, as the US celebrates the fallen, I would like to underline the love spilled by th...

Hood River: Where Simple Dreams become the most Alluring Reality

​Performing in Oregon is one of my favorite things to do. However, i must confess that Hood River is by far my dreamland. The truth is that this place has pretty much everything I am looking for in a city. On the large scheme, Hood River is small but only 1 hr away from an international Air Port. It's clean, simple, pretty and quite relaxing. This ...

Springboard Winery

This past Sunday, April 23rd I had the pleasure to perform over at Springboard in Ellensburg, WA. This cozy, intimate tasting room in the heart of the city is the perfect place to taste wine with the assistance of people like Nate who can tell you everything about the elixirs in the shop. My attention was drawn to the Redwood, a red blend based pri...

Mistakes vs Mistakes

Making a mistake on stage is normal. However, attitude is crucial for the audience (and the critics) to have mercy. It all boils down to your first reaction and your relationship with the music and your fellow musicians on stage. "To play a wrong note is insignificant... to play without Passion is INEXCUSABLE" - BeethovenThe truth is that EVERY MUS...
