Diversion

July 28, 2014

This week I am continuing to re-cycle past music from my year-2001 archive to arrange some new videos.   My goal is to complete five titles from the set which has required some extensive re-mixing due to poor processing and too many layers of noisy sound sources.  The titles being used for videos are "Open the Door", "Dazed and Gloomed", "This Love", "Just Another Day", and "Can It Be".  I will only be posting them to the host and not on this blog.

CD cover art

July 25, 2014

Here is a new cover art that I made for the disc version of "Anthem".  The printed result looks very nice & bold.  The music used in the Transmuter video is a shorter version that is derived from this disc.  The design combines graphics from that video in altered form.

 

LFO Mix

Here is the full video for the 5/4 remix of The Last Song using 808 kick, 909 hats & Roth snares.

Transmuter Mix

July 20, 2014

Totally trippy venture from the world's tallest building to the largest r4ve through the universe in between.  Not recommended to watch if you have that condition where fasting moving lights is annoying!

Anthem

July 14, 2014

After taking longer than planned, finally finished video for this song with 5 hours on post-production editing over three tracks plus effects.  Pyrotechnics shown are from 2014 new year's eve in Dubai!

About "The Avatar"

Audio highlights from the remix album "The Avatar" with keen graphics and talking about making a cold summertime favourite brew.

Spire (live alt)

July 3, 2014

This is an alternate live version of the song that I did last month.  There are no special effects, just me playing the song. 

Swan

June 12, 2014

A short video for the song Swan.

Spire (live)

June 4, 2014

A re-edited video from "About Spire" live playing of song without tea time or ending table talk.  Same audio with alternate visual effects for posting on RVN and fB.

About Spire

June 2, 2014

A Japanese green tea is brewed followed by an introduction to a new song for the Fuse project including the playing of a special edit for the video.  This is the seventh song being completed for the project so far.  For the performing portion of the video, Azoraa comes up with a new technique for video by splitting the main track and reversing the hue on the lower channel while chroma-keying the top level.  Another track for pictures with variable transparency is placed between the split.

Many distractions this weekend!

Changing a Fuse

May 30, 2014

Azoraa brews a green tea then goes into the studio to change a song for Fuse.

Mixed Up

May 24, 2014

A new version of my previous video "I Don't Know Anybody Else" has condensed, and all Debbies have been cut away including the ride in the car (due to complaint).  But I did re-edit all the effects.

Dien Ouye

May 9, 2014

There were no videos for anything from my 2011 album, so I decided to finally complete this house remix for Dien Ouye and video edit a live addition format for it.  For vocals I skipped the 49ers and went right to the source:  Nona Hendryx.  Forewarning:  do not play at loud volume due to piercing notes of live mix (studio version is better mixed).

Tea Time

May 8, 2014

Added new page about the tea time segments and which videos for which brews.

About "Sheer"

About "Sign"

April 24, 2014

Azoraa discusses making a powerful beverage and then briefly talks about the forthcoming project "Fuse".

Concrete Heat revisited

April 21, 2014

Azoraa plays a live version from the album "Concrete Heat" in the studio & ends up having to meditate after drinking too much Kukicha twig tea.

"Mindset" live

April 19, 2014

Azoraa goes to the studio to DJ live version of the song "Mindset" from the album "The Arrival".  Zhe switches around different parts of zher track playing keys, strings, samples, and some percussion throughout the course.

Blog Comments

Wow! What a fabulous rendition of a timeless N-Joi dance tune... The Video editing is astounding Azoraa, and as always The Artist's appearance is both beautiful and Ethereal. Thanks again for all you do! ~K

Just watched About *The Avatar* - loved all of the musical clips from this forthcoming set - *Ethereal Crystal* is a favourite. Just for me - the Polar Bear footage about made me cry as their natural habitat is slowly dissolving due to human greed and error -- and then the footage from My Favorite Movie of All Time made this Video skyrocket from Great to Astounding. If Merlin and Morganna having that Epic Argument does not move one's blood - nothing will...

Great Work As Always Azoraa. Namaste'

A really lovely version of the song Azoraa. I'm thinking this would be amazing played live in a club. Those sub woofers are mind-blowing, being in Zher Studio must be a real treat. Thanks again! ~K

I know I have already made an initial comment regarding *Sign* but I keep coming back to this song again and again. The lilting flow of the notes & the deep emotional transitions The Artist infuses into the song touch one on many emotional levels. It is not often that a song may take a listener through lightness of being, joy, beauty, sadness and loss all in one beautiful journey. I highly recommend this song as a first listen for anyone visiting this site for the first time. Namaste' Azoraa.

Wow *Swan* is SO pretty, I really like it - like the way they swim in a lake and bob their heads up and down. The song is like that - very slow and controlled and beautiful.
Thanks Azoraa for something so Beautiful... ~K
