Eric Calderone: Star Wars - Duel of the Fates Meets Metal

Hi everyone!

So, on a scale of 1 - 10, this was off the chart on arranging. Besides Moonlight Sonata 3, DOTF is probably the hardest vid I've ever attempted. I didn't want to lose what my man John Williams already wrote, so I gave it a shot and re-recorded/re-mapped everything with East/West (wordbuilder for the choirs especially). Hopefully you guys dig :) And the scene where Darth Maul broke out the double sided light saber, yeah that made the movie for me haha. Thanks you so much for everything! It means the world. Big ups for ALWAYS rockin my death star.

May the force be with you



Martin Miller: Forever Eternal - Laney Ironheart, Fractal Audio Axe FX, Ibanez RG970

Here's a cool live performance of my tune "Forever Eternal" during soundcheck in Baotou. I was walking around a bit, trying to get a good sound in FOH. Not the worst, considering it was freezing out there.

Steve Vai: Steve's mirrored JEM returned!

Steve Vai

Great news everyone: Bo, Steve's mirrored JEM that went missing this past weekend, has been found left in the bushes at the gate on Steve's property. We do not have any more details on how it got there and will perhaps forever remain a mystery. The entire Vai camp is grateful for all the amazing outpouring of support we have seen regarding this issue over the last week. Bo is now ready for 2016 and all the notes she will once again be singing from Steve’s fingers and soul. — with Steve Vai.
