It's been a long time...
Recently swapped out and upgraded the main audio interface. Due to the significant upgrade in AD/DA conversion, I'm planning on an ambitious project to remix the entire SIKYON CD sometime in 2014. This remix will clean up and create the mix and sound that was originally intended, resulting in higher quality sounding tracks. There is a chance that I re-release the CD in the near future.
Hopeful
I'm hoping to complete "Trance of the Fire Dance" within the next few weeks. Also, watch for "Percussion Paradise."
Wow! It's been too long since my last update..
I just uploaded "Tsunami Destruction of Japan." It's a short instrumental taking place after the destruction occurred. There is a follow up song arriving soon with another long awaited song.
There's a new song posted
I've uploaded a new song "Mid Autumn Daydream". You can watch it by clicking "Music Videos".
New video and music on the way!
There will be a new video for "Mid Autumns Daydream" and new music coming soon!

Recording new material...
New songs are on the way!
New EP due in early 2009
A new concept EP is in the works and should be available early 2009. The songs on the EP will be primarily acoustic and percussion based. The themes will be similar to the the song "The Unknown Path".
The video is complete!
The video is now complete. I want to thank everyone for their hard work and dedication to making this happen as your efforts are very much appreciated. Everyone did a great job and worked really well together as a team. Thank you!

Music Video update
The final footage with the onscreen talent has been captured. The video project will now enter into the editing phase. Thank you everyone for your hard work and dedication toward this project! It’s very much appreciated!
Music Video - "The Unknown Path"
Plans to start production on the music video for “The Unknown Path” are finally coming to together! Preliminary staging should begin in early June and hopefully post-production will be completed by sometime early to mid July.
AiiRadio.net Interview
I want to thank DJ Yorkie from AiiRadio.net for the great interview! Hopefully we can do it again some day.

You can listen to the interview by clicking on SONGS/MP3's and then "AiiRadio Interview".

FYI -REAL Player IS NOT needed to listen to the interview from this website.
The interview has been rescheduled!
In case you heard the interview…it would’ve been great had it not been for the communication issue. For those who missed out, it has been rescheduled.

We’re going to use an alternative communication tool that has a better track record of stability.

He is excited to have me as a guest on his show again and I am excited to give it another shot. His show starts @ 1:00pm CST. My interview is scheduled around 1:30pm CST, Sunday, May 11th. I recommend clicking on the ‘Listen to Live Stream’ link from AiiRadio.net a few minuets after 1:00pm. If you hear “Welcome to AiiRadio.net” talking about how to navigate through the previous shows then you’re hearing a pre-recording. Simply exit Real player and click on the link again. If Real Player shows ‘live link’ scrolling across you’re good to go.
The AiiRadio interview has been rescheduled:
Show starts at 1:00pm CST.

My interview starts around 1:30PM CST.

Web address: www.aiiradio.net
Don’t forget that you must have REAL Player installed on your computer in order to listen to the show.

Thanks again for all your support!
Plagued by communication issues
Sometimes technology just does not want to co-operate.

Unfortunately the interview today was over shadowed by technical issues. DJ Yorkie did a great job keeping the interview alive even though Geoff’s responses were barely heard by anyone. Arrangements to use an alternative communication tool have been made and we are going to give it another try very soon.

Thank you for your support!

On a positive note: DJ Yorkie hosts a very entertaining show on AiiRadio.net every Sunday @ 1:00 CST. He mixes some common sense humor with some great music. Check it out!
Internet Radio Interview w/DJ Yorkie
I will be part of a two guest interview session on AiiRadio.net. The first guest will be Artist Mia Muze and she will start @ 1:00pm Central US Time. My interview will follow hers.

If she is unavailable then I will probably start @ 1:00pm Central US time.

The interview will take place Sunday, May 4th and will be hosted by DJ Yorkie from Northern Ireland.

To listen to the program go to www.aiiradio.net and click on 'Listen to Live Stream'.

FYI – YOU MUST HAVE 'REAL PLAYER' installed on your computer in order to listen. You can download the STANDARD version of 'REAL PLAYER' for free from www.real.com.

Any changes or cancellations will be posted on this website - www.sikyon.org


Mid winter update
Time really does fly fast! I realeased a Limited Edition Single Release (when I mean limited, I mean a very small quantity) of the new song "The Unknown Path". The song is also available for direct download from this website.

There are 3 other songs in the works and those songs will be on an EP CD along with the song "The Unknown Path". Target release date is mid summer '08.

Later...
Perpendicular Vision
I’m excited to announce that I had recently joined another project called “Perpendicular Vision”. The greatest part about this is that everyone one of them represents the style of musicianship that I’ve been looking for in a band situation for very long time and I believe that feeling is mutual amongst them as well. And the best part is, I think this is the beginning of something very cool!

We’re currently auditioning a vocalist that meets the following criteria;
1. A voice that compliments our original music (and a few covers)
2. The ability to write tasteful lyrics
3. Vocal control
4. Strong stage presence
5. Takes their craft seriously


If you possess this talent and you’re interested, click on the EMAIL link and send a message with your contact information and links to your online portfolio. Anything that we can hear that clearly demonstrates your abilities, style and sound would be great.

Also, the SIKYON project will not end. In fact I still have 2 more songs and a video to complete and post on here. But on a different note, I may be able to play this material live with Perpendicular Vision!
The Unknown Path
The song had been completed. Thanks Daryll!
'The Unknown Path' is on the way!
A new song called 'The Unknown Path' is finished! It was mixed and mastered in Studio B at Winterland Studios in Minneapolis. The new song will be available on Broadjam just as soon as the final review process has been completed.

Keep an eye out for the 'The Unknown Path' video scheduled to be released this late summer/early fall!
American Idol Underground
'Spiders & Ants' entered #14 on the American Idol Underground TOP 50 ROCK Charts today!
New songs are on the way!
Besides being very busy with other projects this past year (some musical and some not), I’ve managed to start recording some new material. There are 3 new songs in the final recording stages due to be released around spring/early summer ’07. My goal is to have 7-8 more songs by the end of this year.

Later!
