Harpsichordist - Harpist - Baroque music [11 Mar 2008|10:11pm]

Salut! I'm organizing a Baroque/Rococo costume ball to take place this summer in New York City, and I'd like to book a harpsichordist and/or harpist to perform for the occasion. A string quartet available to perform some Baroque pieces would also be great. If you are a musician or can recommend someone who would be able to fill the role, I would love to hear from you. Thanks!

Shave your head for art! [24 Feb 2008|04:09pm]

I am looking a woman who is willing to shave their head (or cut their hair very short) for a short, experimental film. The scene will be done in a bathtub so comfort with partial/full nudity is a plus but not necessary.

The project is going to be shot the weekend of March 1st (exact
day/time is flexible). I can't pay, but copy and credit will be provided as well as transportation (we will be shooting in New York, NY) and snacks for the shoot. The crew is small and the shoot will be laid back, fun, and creative.

Please email me for more details or if interested-

Ljova's interactive BABY naming contest. [23 Jan 2008|12:00pm]


What in the horror world is this? -- Why, it's a picture of my brand new baby. I'm anxious to denounce any rumors that its immaculate conception belongs to my wife, or J-Lo.
But what should we call it? That, my friends, is up to you - see below, and thank you!

This new baby is a 6-stringed acoustic instrument, made by the excellent Eric Aceto of Ithaca, NY. On its belly, it carries the strings of a viola (C-G-D-A), the violin (G-D-A-E) and a super-low string (F), one pitch higher than the bottom note of the guitar. Size-wise, it's taller than a violin but shorter than a viola, clocking in at 14 inches.

So what should we call it? I'd like to propose a baby-naming contest. For all details, see my blog.

Enter.. The SoupASonic! [18 Nov 2006|09:41am]

Dear LJ friends,

Please welcome thesoupasonic!

I've decided to start a more "professional" blog, one which will concentrate more heavily on music, gear, and soup. This blog (WhatMePractice) will continue to serve as a vehicle (ventricle) for more off-topic, embarassing things.

If you want to read the new blog, please add TheSoupASonic to your friends.

See you out there!

Story Research [12 Nov 2006|08:12pm]

[ mood | creative ]

I'm writing a story, and the sister of my main character just got accepted to Juilliard, and another important character is also going there.
This means I have to find out a few things about the place.

What is the food like?
Is there a dress code students have to follow? (one of the characters is from a rather poor background, and doesn't have a suit.)
Do you really have to share your bedroom with someone else? What colour are the walls? Is there carpet or tiles?
Do students do much mingling with the students from other disciplines?
What can a dancer expect from their first week at Juilliard?

Signed Band w/ WARNER BROTHERS Distro seeks VIOLINIST [11 Sep 2006|05:43pm]

I am sure some of you have seen this add up before, here we go again. People tend to join our band for all the right reasons without realizing they will be busy. So off the bat if you think you can only handle 2 shows a month, this is not for you. For those of you who want to Tour the Entire USA and UK, and find it appealing to have your Album in Every Store in America, this is for you.

We are Kiss Kiss

- We are now preparing publicists with the soon to be release of our 1st Full Length Album. "Reality Vs The Optimist"
- We currently have our EP in Most US stores through Lumberjack Distribution ( Go to any Tower Records, it should be there. )

Our music is a creative twist on Pop, using Middle Eastern Scales, and Odd Time Signatures. Our Songs are accessible, but not ordinary. We have a growing fan base in The North East and Mid West, after a 2 month tour this summer we planted some seeds on the West Coast and South West as well.

We have a Tour in the Works for Our Albums Soft Non Retail Release This November where we will hit Key Markets in the North East, and we will have a Full National Tour in February of 2007 in support of the Actual US release. The tour will include a 5 day stop at SXSW in Austin Texas.
