Keith Emerson, one of music's greatest keyboardists, crossed-over a few days ago. His most famous band was: "Emerson, Lake and Palmer". Each of them is a high-accomplished musician. Sylvia and I love his music and musicianship. I bought their "Brain Salad Surgery" album, when it came out in the 70s (before meeting Sylvia). I played it for her and she was hooked.
- I'm crying now because it's very sad to lose another super-talent. So, yes, this touched "me" and "Sylvia"… and this is why I'm including this.
This link provides an overview of his style and a few videos of him performing:
This link explains "how" and "why" he crossed-over:

I "think" Sylvia and I have finally finished working on the details of our "N.O.A.T.Y." song. Although we started adjusting some of the "Mix", a few days ago, we're going to focus on that today.
What we've learned about Mixing is it's difficult. At least for "us". I mentioned previously that our songs are like our Children. Each song contains various instruments and each of them wants to be heard but we can't simply turn-up the volume on every instrument. The song would be muddy and the Listener wouldn't know which aspect (melody, rhythm, harmony) to focus their attention on.
Today, while adjusting the various volumes, we kept checking the overall sound through headphones and the small, but professional, music amplifier Sylvia and I bought several months ago. Whenever we heard the song through that amp, some parts were way too loud. So I adjusted the volume. Then, when listening through headphones, some parts had dropped-out. We couldn't hear them.
At one point, I told Sylvia… just going from "direct-listening" (headphones) to "open-air" (amplifier) listening should not cause that song to change as much as it is. Sylvia then suggested we use a different cable. Of course, that was the solution. (Did I mention that "my" girl is smart?" Very smart.)
I had been using a cable which had the correct Connector on 1 end but needed an adaptor on the other. I though the Adaptor was taking the (audio) signal from "Stereo" to "Mono" but, it turns out, it wasn't. It was a "Mono" to "Mono" Adaptor and had removed 1 of the Stereo Channels.
Anyway, our latest "N.O.A.T.Y." song is now finished and backed-up. If anyone is interested in this song's statistics, here are a few of them:
- 90bpm (beats per minute)
- 7-minutes and 33-seconds in length
- Style: Orchestral / Symphonic
- I "sing" and "talk" in this song
- a couple of Tracks "Pan" back-and-forth (move left and right, when listening through headphones or true Stereo System)
- File size: 503MB (megabytes)
- The 1st part of this song that Sylvia sent me was the wash of Symphonic Strings, which runs the entire length of the song. (Some of it has been removed, so other parts could be inserted and heard.) Sylvia indicated that we will probably release just this "Streamed" String part as a song by itself. Sort of like a Bonus Track.
This Channeled message is through Sheldon Nidle. Here are some excerpts:
- "The progress toward a mass global success moves ahead! Despite a series of procedural adjustments last week, the needed movement of funds continued. At present, the special historic bonds have been moved and accounted for. The world is ready for a new currency that is much more fairly accounted for and truly represents the real value of each nation’s economy."
- "You are growing in consciousness and becoming more aware of how this new realm is to formally function."
- "This last decade has seen the rise of a series of various enlightened groups who are on the verge of great success. This success is to put each of you on the very precipice of a new reality. This reality is to permit you to meet your off-world ancestors and to finally complete a rebellion that started over 13 millennia ago during the last days of Atlantis."

I don't know where this information comes from but "IF" it's true, it provides a wealth of incredible feedback:
- "Intel Update"
- "The astral plane has been cleared of all Archons."
- "All Draco groups who have chosen not to deprogram have been removed from the galaxy"
- "An outer-perimeter has been formed around the sector to stop groups from casually observing and to stop malevolent groups from intervening."
- "This planet is the last holdout of the Draco Federation and they are not giving it up easily. Over the last few days various negative groups have been running suicide missions into the sector."
- "A positive Atlantean group that has been in the sector for 10,000 years has deprogrammed and is ready to make contact."
- "Motherships are beginning to enter into the atmosphere in order to wake people up from their programmed reality. They will be cloaked during the day and uncloaked at night."
- "First contact protocol has been initiated and is beginning with dream time experiences."
- "New-born babies are being smothered in North and South Korea in order to stop the flow of psychic children who are reincarnating. The Order of the Star is intervening."
- "There is currently a clearing of darkhat hackers across the world."
