I want to take the time to recommend. Olive, free open source video editing software. Its the Alpha version but its very stable. I just finished the next lyric video with it today. https://www.olivevideoeditor.org/
Shakhan has release a single today called Sea of Trees.
The lyrical video is available to watch on YouTube.https://youtu.be/ZuAE_9JB3Eg
This song is written about Aokigahara also known as the Sea of Trees.
It is a forest close to Japan’s Mount Fuji. Sadly where many people go and commit suicide.
Hi, we have a new single, the first of many – coming out …
A while ago we had our bass guitar and a mic stolen.
I have replaced the bass and now the mic with a new MXL V67G.
Really need it as I have 11 tracks with clarinet to record.
Its been a great summer with lots of good weather 🙂
You might ask whats Shakhan been up to?
Well Shakhan is currently recording bass guitar for – 12 tracks
Written for vocals, clarinet, oud and darbuka.
Most of the songs have been written in phrygian dominant harmonic scale
I spent some time learning WordPress and have updated the site. I think it looks better and is working well.
Decided to move the site over to words-press. Hopefully update early new year.
Hi one and all
Shakhan has been distracted in recent times doing CG art work and graphite
pencil drawing. To remedy that we have started working on some new music …
Will keep you posted
Finished my String quartet project. I stopped at 12. Not sure what to do now as their are no string quartets in Rotorua. Anyway they need to be checked out as I am a complete amature with no formal training in composition.
I have just started to try and write a few string quartets.
I’m not sure how it will pan out. Fun trying anyway.
Wow, a bit slack on updating the site! But yes, we have been working on new projects. Shoshanah has been learning the wonderful open software called Musescore, as the name implies is a score notation programme. I have been learning Blender a free CG software as the former post shows.
I have just up dated the Art link with a few illustrations of mine. Here is one called Horse Dreams. Hoping to have more art available for purchase online soon.
I have put the music to one side for a little while as I have been working on cg art work.
Learning Blender a wonderful open sorce software but quite a steep learning curve. Feeling that I’m starting to win.
Decided to rebuild the web site using tables so that it will sit in the middle of the larger monitors.
I used Komposer free open sorce software.

Wow, last year came and went fast! I hope that you have enjoyed your break. We have had no internet access from home so unfortunately last year the web site was not updated as it should have been. However now I have my little laptop going and hope to do more updates on this blog.
I have just added a new ART button to the front page menu that leads to some CG art work that I have created over the past few months.
