Ending 2018, into the light for 2019

gil velazquez Brahma Dance

It has been quite some time since I last posted on my studio blog. As life goes, it can get in the way in a lot of places. But despite, life stuff, I have been able to start production. The track and production this time around is going to be based upon one song I wrote back in 2010, and the title of the track is “Brahma Dance.” The song has been played countless times in a variety of ways from my perspective ranging from an acoustic singer-songwriter approach to a full-blown “Zeppelin-influenced” rock tune.

As it happens as I begin a recording project, the creativity starts to creep in, and then things start to evolve. A few years after I “thought” I had the song done in my head, I went for the first time to a beginners meditation seminar. Completely caught off guard, I experienced a memorable event through the music that was played that evening in a room of strangers. Let’s just say the images and emotions I was feeling that evening just flowed into the inner place from which I wrote Bhrama Dance without consciously realizing it. It was at that moment I knew I need to incorporate that experience into some aspect of this next EP production.

So in summary Brahma Dance is looking like a 3-part composition, a beginning or genesis, the foundation of the song’s message, and an outro that transcends into the realm of that meditation experience. I am hoping this all comes together soon in 2019.

Wishing all of you health, happiness, peace and prosperity in 2019.
