Let The Ambient Synth-Scape Of Opus I-IV Wash It Away

OPUS I-IV is the latest in cosmic chamber music from Northern Californian composer Giacomelli. Fresh from the analog moog-tastic glory of the LOOSE CANONS mono-synthphonic suite comes the follow-up collection of four original works composed for meditative mediation of the tympanic-pineal threshold.

OPUS I-IV was recorded using the minimalist techniques of Terry Riley and Fripp & Eno at the warm confines of the composers� own home studios, over the course of four days in late April 2016, using only a MicroKorg synthesizer and a Yamaha PYT 300 plugged into a unique delay chain.

Ambient music connoisseurs and psychonauts alike will find much to dive into on the new LP, Giacomelli抯 sophomore solo release on the HOHM RECORDINGS label, as the hyperactive 8-bit themes of LOOSE CANONS 2.0 are replaced with spaced-out polyphonic drones and biometric harmonic runs which trickle across the spectra like the euphoric assurance of songbirds celebrating the rising sun in these new improvised compositions for synthesizer & stomp box.

Full tracklist as follows:

Opus I - Geodesic Homes (Organissimo Concerto)
Opus II - Aspirations, (or Dance of the Double Helix; for piano & woodwind)
Opus III - Cuando Bolero (Piano Scherzo)
Opus IV - Evening Cadenza (for organ & woodwind)

OPUS I-IV by Giacomelli is available now at iTunes, Bandcamp, Tidal, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, CD Baby, and all other major digital outlets.

Beyonce And Destiny's Child Documentary Set To Premiere In Houston

The Andretta Tillman Story a new documentary about the life of the innovative manager and architect of Beyonc and Destiny's Child will make its world premiere in

Houston, Texas November 14, 2016, at the prestigious Alamo Draft House Cinemas The Vintage, with filmmakers and members of the cast in attendance for red carpet media

interviews and a post-screening panel discussion.

Media interviews will begin at 5:45 p.m. and the screening will commence at 7:30 p.m. Following the screening, cast and filmmakers will discuss the movie led by Gigi

Githoro director/producer, Brian K. Moore producer, Armon Tillman producer and the Movie Cast members, Additional panelists will be announced as confirmed.

The documentary gives an entrancing personal account of Andretta Tillman's life and the struggles she encountered while fulfilling the dream of her deceased husband,

giving an up close look at the sacrifices, the anguishes, the obstructions, and conquests of her life that left a lasting impact on Beyonc Knowles and the rest of

Destiny's Child.

"The Movie give full credit and a voice to the people who were the true champions in launching Beyonc Knowles and Destiny's Child careers, those who sacrificed some,

and those who sacrificed all. Including interviews from Gospel Great Cathy Taylor, Hip Hop Super Producer Cory Mo, and for the first time Nikki and Nina Taylor, two of

the original members of the group Girls Tyme that became Destiny's Child tell their story, as well as many more artist Andretta's life impacted.

I always thought Andretta's Story was such a beautiful and uplifting story, but after hearing what people and these other artists had to say about her and all she

accomplished and sacrificed, while at the same time being the mother hen, grooming, feeding, and teaching them all about the music industry for free. That is unheard

of in this industry. Wow! That's some unconditional love said Michael Ferguson of Dousic Media Group.

"We are excited to finally be bringing my mother's story to the public," and to offer a different perspective on the reality of the origin of Destiny's Child while

showcasing the woman who navigated their lives and careers but wasn't able to enjoy living out the dream, said producer Armon Tillman

We also wanted to do something special on that night, which would reflect Andretta, so the only way to do that was to give back. So we name the event "Screening of a

Cure for Lupus". As we want to use this Premiere and others we will be doing across the country, to raise awareness and money for Lupus research to find a cure. No one

should have to go through what my sister endured, but at the same time, I have to smile because even with all her obstacles she created the greatest girl group of all

time and the biggest star in the world. (Church!!) Explained producer Brian Moore.

Longoria Releases The Journey Album

David Longoria, trumpeter, music producer and songwriter releases The Journey, his first contemporary instrumental album in three years with an EDM (Electronic Dance Music) soundscape on Del Oro Music. Produced by Longoria and Robert Eibach, the twelve song collection follow the theme of a lifetime of milestones represented as a journey. From a time before birth to the afterlife, the range covers a dozen points common to most people. 

Starting and ending with different versions of a theme called Angels, Longoria presents a catchy improvised theme that brings to mind barouque trumpeting. The opening version is a beat driven dance track that seamlessly blends the classical trumpeting with edgy progressive house production. The ending rendition is beatless and relies more on ethereal arrangement incorporating both strings and synthesizors, symbolizing the afterlife. Staying true to the theme, The Journey illustrates the songs listing as a map instead of the traditional titles list. 

"I drew a map to show how each song relates to the others in the timeline of one's life," Longoria explains, adding, "Every milestone represents an important event  or point in a life".

Genesis is a musical representation of a single cell meeting another and dividing over and over again. One note then two, four, eight, sixteen and so forth until a melody forms. Finally a heartbeat emerges and the melody takes shape as a unique song, or being. Playground is a fun, dancey song that playfully bounces the trumpet's catchy melody over the beat. Mermaids carries a nautical theme and is meant to show the point where boys discover girls. 

"Every little boy falls in love with mermaids and every little girl wants to be one", says Longoria. He describes his own experience as "a curious time when I found that girls were far prettier than we were and could be way more dangerous".  

Never Give Up, Dodging Arrows, The Good Life and Swagger are songs that bring the theme into the formative years and into adulthood. International musicians joined in to compliment the songs including Grammy winning South African flautist Wouter Kellerman with a solo and harmonized duet with Longoria's trumpet. Funky bassist Duane "Smitty "Smith brought a memorable solo and foundation and legendary guitarist Funky Gemi Taylor lent a hand for the proud Swagger. Decadence shows that in one's life often we take things to excess. This dance song features the vocals of Longoria joined by Electro Pop duo Stiletto, made up of singers Katie Shorey and Andie Sandoval, and young rock lead guitarist Ariel. Stiletto's seductive vocals brought the temptation element to the song.

"To show that edgy element I needed to bring in a fun and crunchy, screaming guitarist to play off the lyrics and my wild trumpet work," Longoria explains, and adds "Ariel has such a great feel for edgy solo work I knew she would bring just the right amount of energy and edge to the song". He found that her youthful presence and tremendous talent were perfect to compliment the theme of the over-the-top song.  Longoria found her guitar solo videos on YouTube and contacted her to bring her to the studio. "I really enjoyed her take on the classic shredding guitar solos a la Eddie Van Halen and others from the vintage eras of the 1970s and 80s," he says. "She is a very talented musician as well as a very sweet young lady, which was a bit of a nice surprise!" Longoria muses. 

There comes a time in life when you realize it shouldn't just be all about yourself and you want to reach out to give others a hand with words and deeds of encouragement. "I wanted to have a song on The Journey that lifts people up and can cause change in our society, even though I know that seems like a lofty goal at the onset," Longoria explains, adding "Since last year marked the 30th anniversary of Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie's iconic collaborative song We Are The World, I wanted to take that inspiration and write something to take on an issue of today by bringing artists together to join me". He wrote a song to unite races in our modern world, by verbally sticking a flag in the notion of people standing up for one another and declaring to love one another. We Are One was written and produced by Longoria to attempt to do more than words. He formed a charity, We Are One Concerts, LLc to educate and involve students in discovery and the idea of uplifting each other regardless of race, culture and economics, where the proceeds of the recording can do some good. By designating profits to the good works of the charity,  Longoria felt the mission can reach many students across the country- especailly in the cities where racial tensions have been the greatest in recent years, including Ferguson, Charleston, Baltimore, New York and Chicago. 

Longoria knows a bit about bringing programs to kids to encourage and inspire through music. In 2001 He, along with a few other recording artists started a concert program that produces concerts at schools and community venues with a charity called LIFT (Living Intelligently For Today). The self funded program has brought the artists across the country producing as many as 250 concerts in a year, all with no cost to schools or students. 

"I asked twenty artists to join me singing on We Are One so we could show the power of many singing in unison, and how those voices could take on such an important issue in our time," says Longoria. He planned to produce the song with those twenty artists within two weeks and wrap up the recording project. Things got a bit out of hand. Nearly a year and a half later, Longoria has produced more than 600 artists all singing together with him on this now historic song for unity. Artists from all genres, races and generations joined in singing. Stars of Motown to now including Coasters, Drifters, Platters, Freda Payne, The Fifth Dimension, Florence LaRue, Jerry Bell (The Dazz Band), Brenda Holloway, Dawnn Lewis, Corey Feldman, Marvin Gaye, Jr., Peaches and Herb and about 595 more recorded in more than 400 recording sessions in cities all over America and Europe. 

"The song and mission are far bigger than me now," he explains. In fact music business icon Russ Regan told him upon hearing it, "yes, you have a hit here, but its not just a song, it's a movement". Regan might be a good source of foresight in music. He ran some of the most successful record labels in modern history and is credited with discovering Elton John and Neil Diamond, got Jesus Christ Superstar made and gave the Beach Boys their name. 

As one's life matures we discover that forgiveness and mercy are essential to ones successful human condition. Longoria wrote Redemption to memorialize this. 

Photography on The Journey was created by photographer Harrison Funk, well known for his iconic work with Michael Jackson and many other international stars. From nemerous magazine covers for Time and others to his official portrits of The Queen of England, Nelson Mandela, many US presidents including Regan, Carter, Clinton, Bush Sr. and Jr. and Obama. The life theme of The Journey was photographed in teh Nevada desert where the team braved 117 degree heat as they shot the pictures that became The Journey illustrations. 

"As grueling as it was in the overwhelming heat, we got some real magic on film," Funk beams. 

Longoria is proud of each of the creative elements of the album, ranging from thephotography to the songwriting, production, performance and illustrations.  

"Robert Eibach and I have created a collection of songs, mostly instrumental that will take you through the events of a life we can all relate to, a look at The Journey", Longoria says.  

The Journey is available now on iTunes, Amazon and wherever music streams and is sold. Official website is found at
