I remember in the days of the old Mix several artists uploaded compositions based on bolero and named after themselves. I always wanted to do the same, and finally, here it is. Of course it's not a real Spanish bolero because it's not in a triple time. But it's definitely closer to bolero than, say, to a square dance. So Bolero it is! <br /><br />Special thanks to Gary Carciello.<br /><br />Please enjoy!<br /><br />Doctor C

<p>This is our new instrumental piece. Initially, I thought I would name it "Farewell to the iMS". But thank God there's no reason to do so now! Big thanks to the iMS administration for making the right choices and decisions in this difficult time.</p>

<p>As we all know, the recent events got every one of us nervous and scared. The fact that the iMS is alive and kicking is truly great news. I would say the iMS has been reborm. To celebrate this event I suggest we compose, perform and record "The iMS Anthem".</p>
<p>A possible scenario of how we do that could be something like this: Let’s agree on a timetable, say, 2 or 3 weeks. Let our brilliant songwriters come up with something memorable and celebratory. Let them send their tunes to the iMS administration. Let Dazed or his designee encode the titles of the tunes and post them without mentioning the author’s name in order to avoid judgements based on authors reputation and good standing rather than musical merit of compositions (something like Song 01, Song 02, etc). Let’s then count popular vote (Florida musicians could be allowed to recount, lol…). The winning tune will be presented to our wonderful lyricists. When the song is ready let’s make it the biggest collaboration in iMS history – we have more than enough superstar singers, instrumentalists, arrangers and producers to make this work.</p>
<p>If anybody has other thoughts about this, bring it on, let’s discuss it!</p>
<p>What do y’all think about it?</p>

<p><font size="2">I finally decided to open my page at this wonderful site. I've been a loyal member of the fantastic Mixposure family for some time. I don't usually change my loyalties easily but unfortunately, it appears that Mixposure is really dead this time. (What a shame!) Some of the pillars of the Mix community have migrated to this site, and it looks like every day I see more familiar faces here. I was still pretty reluctant to opem my own page mainly because I don't have much of a new material - these days I do mostly collabs with Gary Carciello and Rob Grant. Please check out their pages for our latest work. But some of my friends (including my dearest bandmate Rob) were rather insistent, so here it is...</font></p><p><font size="2">The songs you will find here are instrumental tracks heavily influenced by classical and folk music, and firmly anchored in the 70s classic rock traditions. I like the idea of blending different styles, musical techniques and approaches together. Even though I have been fiercely criticized for my "experiments", I do not consider my tracks experimental in any way. I simply believe that the great Bach could sound very well in hard rock, and that music from the Caucasus Mountains and Mississippi delta could merge to form an exciting track.</font></p>
