    Couldn't agree with you more, Chuck. Might be more improper for members to accept Koji's "musical offering" without considering the value of his time and efforts.

    It was a special piece he composed in honor of his Maffies shirt.

    With a bit of Rachmaninoff (and Scriabin?) thrown in for good measure. Lovely stuff... thanks for posting.[/quote]
    Scriabin: most likely.

    (Alexander Kabbaz @ April 11 2005,17:13) Well, Joelle and I sat down by the fire, brandy in hand, wonderful, wonderful music in the background ... but it ran out in only 6 minutes. Â [​IMG] Â [​IMG] Â [​IMG] Can we find the CD on the Selling Forum ... PLEASE.
    Well, I don't have any commercial CD's out (it's simply too expensive to rent out any studio time/engineer--you never recoup the losses anyway), but as with Carlo, I'd be happy to cull together a CD from recent concert performances for any styleforum members. koji
    Hypothetically - what would studio time and an engineer cost? I think there are an awful lot of folks here who would be honored to contribute to that cause. If we were to raise the cost for producing it, would you have the inclination to do it? Not volunteering you for something you don't want to do but if you do... well your modesty is noted and appreciated but I'm willing to bet that I am not the only one who would LOVE to help make that happen. Are we talking raising $5K or $50K? If $50k I see the argument, if we're talking $5K put us down for $100 and let's see if there aren't 49 others here who would love to take part in getting that CD featuring our friend.

    Good idea, Chuck. I'd be glad to put in my $100.

    Wow; such generosity, it's truly appreciated. Usually the cost of producing a viable commercial cd, taking into the costs of renting out a studio space, hiring an engineer, artwork, label, and actual cd production will chime in anywhere from 5-10 grand. Luckily, my friend has his own label, and I can record at another friend's studio for free (I just have to fly out there, he lives in North Carolina). This would knock off costs considerably, to the point where it could be done for around 2500-3 grand. Still quite a chunk of change, I'm afraid.
    The pieces on the video I played were four Scriabin preludes, Op. 11 #9, Op. 13 #3, Op. 11 #6, and 14. To the people that PM'd me about cd's, I'll try my best to have them mailed out by the end of this week.

    Well we already have 500 raised in a few hours - start calling your friends and get some studio time.

    I have no money, but would pitch in the price of a couple of CDs (retail) for the privilege of helping to bring this thing to life.

    OK, GUYS, LET'S GET THE KOJI CD PROJECT ON THE ROAD... We've got $100 from Chuck, Alex, New Yorker and StyleStudent and $40 from LA Guy. That's $440. So we need to put together another $2000. Nice even number. Who else is going to support the arts? As soon as the pot reaches $2440, Chuck and I will put in the rest to bring it up to the $3000 needed. Just sign on below by saying "Mee tooo... And if this thread falls down the page, someone bump it back up, please.

    I'd be up for $50 to support this kind of talent.

    What the hell? Didn't even see this thread. I'd record it for free (Beautiful Girls Recording, booyah), have a buddy of mine do the art, another do the reproduction, and bam, we've got a record on Falsetto Records. But you'd have to play shows with Not Enough Gold, He Who Corrupts, and Undo Tomorrow... what a bummer.

    The second piece (I think) sounds alot like something I heard in a movie once... It was about this piano player who was born on a cruise ship and never got off. He just played music for all the guests for his entire life. Anybody know what I'm
    talking about? Could be the same piece.

    Anyways, I liked it.
