Well, it's been a few months since I've actually posted a video/news update/music up here, but times are definitely changing :D. Over the past few weeks, I've been finishing up a new recording, and I'm going to be releasing it NEXT WEEKEND. That's right; check back on my social media for the release next weekend (https://www.facebook.com/TurbulentSolace). In honor of that (and to build some hype :) ), I wanted to post up a  new live video from the archives, which you may find above. This was performed almost a year ago but still remains one of my favorite pieces to play live. So, hopefully you guys enjoy it :D; you can listen to an official recording at one of the following pages:


Again, this video is being released in anticipation of a new recording's imminent release. Check back on my social media (or here) NEXT WEEKEND to check out the new song :). Thanks for all of the support!!



A few months ago, I also released another live performance, but I never made a post for it. So, to remedy that, I'm also posting that video below :D. Here's literally the FIRST and ONLY performance of "In an Unrelated Story"; enjoy!!

If you watched my video regarding the album Kaizen, you know that these past two years have been an epic, transformational journey for me.  Having hit rock bottom at that time, I wanted more out of life, and that desire compelled me to sacrifice anything for happiness - whether it was a high-salaried job, my own place, etc.  In the end, I ended up completely restructuring my mind, purpose, and almsot every facet of my life; there was no sacrifice great enough to stop me from attaining the true, sustainable happiness/success I was after.  Well, by choosing to indulge in that mentality and personal journey, I ended up partaking in some of the greatest experiences of my entire life, and I became something that transcended beyond anything I could ever imagine.  The journey always gave me more than it took.

A few days ago, I just launched a new side project which focuses on condensing that journey into an online self-development and tutoring program.  Entitled "The Kaizen Effect", this project seeks to find people who not only want more out of life but are willing to put in the time, effort, and dedication to make stuff happen. As such, it offers the tools, lessons, and wisdom needed to pave a track record of excellence.  So, if you want more out of life and wish to push the boundaries of what you think is possible, check out my website; I'll be providing the resources for developing a proper inner framework that is essential for any successful lifestyle.  Then, since success is something that flows from the inside-out, I'm also using the website to provide some tutoring in physics, math, and engineering; I want to provide additonal vehicles which supply the external knowledge, talents, and skill sets to drive you towards success.

So, if you want a life that always gives more than it takes and is founded on your passions, check out our website, subscribe to our YouTube page, and like our Facebook page below.  Join me as we all grow into the best version of ourselves together,  and I promise that you will engage in the most epic journey of your entire life:

Since my last post, I have been transcending space and time, progressing on my own journey, and starting new and exciting projects (which I hope to share with all of you soon!!).  Anyway, on the music front, I wanted to provide a quick update for all of you.  If you haven't seen it already, I ended up performing a 30-minute set for the holidays; here's a performance of Transiberian Orchestra's Carol of the Bells :D :

Also, in honor of the new year, I ahve also released a pre-drums (or so i think lol) version of track 2 for Kaizen; this guy is entitled "Even a Burning Phoenix Foresees its Resurgence..." and is intended to set the tone of the album's journey (see the song for a more detailed description):

So, since I'll be quite busy in the coming months (grad school), I decided to put together quite a large update regarding the album - amounting to 1 hour and 15 minutes of content (probably the largest video I've ever put together, but it was a lot of fun :) ). In this update, I go over three main topics: the album's overall concepts/themes, my composition process, and how I approach recording and mixing. Furthermore, throughout the video, you'll also be able to hear random snippets from three separate pieces: the introduction piece (which is mainly a piano/orchestra composition with a full choir), "Even a Burning Phoenix Foresees its Resurgence..." (Which sets the tone for the album's "downfall" and journey to rise up....you'll get to hear pretty much all of this piece in the video), and "...And When He Rises, He Shall Soar" (Which is intended to convey the euphoria accompanying any type of rise and rewarded perseverance). Although I was unable to fully finish the recording process this summer, it has been more than fulfilling to take my tangible experience/journey, translate it into an expansive musical piece, and then manifest portions of it within this world :). Thus, this is sort of like a concise conclusion of a great summer - one that came as the culmination of my developmental journey and lead to even more growth. Thanks to everyone who was able to contribute to that development and all of the great times; your presence means more than you'd think. Here's to all of the maturation, beauty, and possibility that's in store for this upcoming semester; enjoy and carpe diem :)!!

As promised in my previous post, I've since uploaded a live performance of "A Melancholic Departure", which can be found below.  If you'd like to listen to the actual recording, that can also be found on Newgrounds at the following link: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/481070 .  Also, to promote my new facebook page, I'm planning on releasing live performances/videos/album updates weekly.  So, if you haven't already, make sure that you like/follow/share my facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/TurbulentSolace).  Thanks for your support, and enjoy!

Hey guys,

This summer, I have been performing a lot of my recorded material live and just put together a facebook page for my recordings.  If you get a chance, please like/follow my page (https://www.facebook.com/TurbulentSolace), as I will be providing a lot of updates throughout the summer.  These updates will include live show information, live recorded video/audio, photo's, and much more.  Once I get enough people tuned in, I'll be releasing a live video of "A Melancholic Departure" (http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/481070).  As always, thanks for your support, NG users :D, and take care!!
