'Excellent recording quality and I love the CD.' -Jack Scalfani,FightCloud The Story Behind TK Wizard's 'Crystal Dreams' A long time ago, I started to play acoustic guitar. I then progressed to electric guitars, but always kept my enthusiasm for the acoustics. My real early rock history goes back to the Space Band days in the early 1980's. (Go to cdbaby.com/spaceband.) We released one album and then went on a long hiatus which it is still in effect (we're waiting for funding to produce a second album). Anyway, through the years I've kept busy jamming with friends and listening to different kinds of music. (Check out cdbaby.com/btexpress.) I liked the energy of dance but could never understand why there wasn't more guitars involved. So, I started to play my electric and acoustic guitars over dance progressions which I thought added an interesting element. In 2000, I released the first TK Wizard CD called 'Party At The Castle.' It received good recognition for the innovative use of acoustic guitars with upbeat dance/techno instrumentals. Now, with 'Crystal Dreams', I took it a step further by using computer dance loops. The sound is very, very dance oriented. The concept behind these tracks is not only geared for the dance floor, but for listening. Most of the jams present the guitars as the main focus over the rhythms. I incorporated other sounds occasionally to mix it up a bit. Orchestrated passages might weave in and out of percussive breaks. Classical guitar is used, electric guitars, and synthesizers. All of these ideas contribute to a sound that is quite unpredictable and exciting! The 'Crystal Dreams' music was recorded in my home digital studio. I programmed all the tracks and played all the guitars and some keyboards. The CD was mastered at Basement Floor Studios by Tim Miskimon. Also of interest, because of the dynamic nature of dance tracks, this CD clocks in at about 62 minutes and most of the songs are long. Listening to this journey is an escape to uncharted musical territories! Happy vibes, Terry Kempler Please note: This music was professionally recorded and mixed in digital format with the CD mastering done at a professional sound studio. To save costs, the CD art was designed on computer and printed on high quality photo paper. The music is burned onto CD-Rs with no shrink wrap. This insures that the artist benefits more directly!
