Music in me is Avant-Garde !

My fascination for music editing started due to my physical disability to perform in sync with anybody. The music never ever synced with anyone except with me. When people sang in high pitch, I usually performed my version with low hush. When sound required modest amplification, my vocal chords were usually found at the toughest contraction blaring out everyone's timid vocal rendition. People said that the whole thing looks like a voluntary process and I was sometime punished, avoided for the thing I haven't voluntarily. The rejection led me away from active participation in performing songs. But it helped me instead to get along with different softwares.

Later I just stumbled upon software called Goldwavedigital audio editing software. The version was I remember the exact version because I have always kept the installer file of the software since time immemorial close to my heart. And the same setup file is with me even now.

It is close to my heart for two reasons firstly it was the first music editing software which I operated for thousands of hours, loosing sleep continuously for even 72 hours and secondly I lost and found the setup file and revived it with simple tweaks[citation needed].

I trained myself and kept on editing, playing, experimenting with sounds and music until I had a vision that I had to publish my works to the world to help criticize me so that I can compete with myself upgrading my skills with every passing day. I created an account in, an online audio distribution platform which allows collaboration, promotion and distribution of audio recordings. I kept the account inactive for days because I could get a good mix to upload.

A day came when I had to show my appreciation of friendship and i presented my friend my first online upload. It was a very famous trance track by Rank1 called "L.E.D There Be Light", which I named as L.E.D There Be Light (Flange Peace Remix).
Then I moved on to create some shuffle in the sound of a great DJ, Tiesto. The track was named In The Dark - Tiesto feat Christian Burns (Shuffle Remix).
I consider the next sound an epic. For many days I tried to create a mix of George W. Bush's address to the people of the United States, September 11, 2001. It is really an encouraging and heart rending political speech. I worked for days to edit and mix it. The last day before I could upload the mix, I tried to give it a final touch and worked till 4.30am and got a satisfactory result. I uploaded the mix to sound cloud, unaware of the news that will strike me. After uploading the mix, when I checked the current affairs, I learned that, while I was busy mixing a track related to September 11 attacks, the main (!) perpetrator of the September 11 attacks, was being killed silently(!) in Abottabad and the western civilization is celebrating his death. The track was named 911-511, a derivative of the dates when the initial and the final event took place.
            Like the above mentioned tracks, every track has a (bad/beautiful/strange) story behind it. I will share all those stories when time permits. For today, knock knock.

Little Imperfectness, makes us cringe for more "perfect performance" !

But with a little tweaking I made it to look like it is covered by dry blood

Introducing "Xero Haem". The effect is more pronounced near the mandibular region.

My First and the Last Scientific Poem

"In the Lap of Chaparral"

Is it or isn't it ?
A chaparral or a greenish blancquet,
of the far away "The Mediterranean";
when you gaze through my eyes
you see a heaven on earth,
angels dancing below the Prussian blue sky,
with pinkish aurora,
in the cool, pleasant winter rainfall,
with only 89.6 deg Fahrenheit.
I recall the days, when i often were irresistible,
to play with the moist breeze from the ocean,
which touched my heart at once,
I talked with the broad leaved evergreen sallow,
from which I found the aroma of the Life,
chipmunks were friends,
from them I learned the meaning of eternal friendship of life,
But, But,
look around,
I saw a sudden burst of light, like an abrupt flash of trinitrotoluene,
I can see the fumes conspiring with the nimbostratus,
forming nebulae in the sky.
bush fire hugging the chaparral,
I must help them,
and they must help themselves too.
Alas, its gone, the paradise lost,They will rise again like a phoenix,
with a new beauty, vigor and richness,
only after a soothing balm of precipitation
to wash away the bane from its life.

P.S. Did you understand the poem ?

Hello World !

Here is my first blog entry. From Today onwards I vow to give out my personal information to the world! I believe Google, Facebook, Twitter (all the services related to Social networking) and search engines are profiting on people's data. And why should I be left behind in giving out information to the World, when "Self Expression" is a craze in "Internet". But I will better keep sensitive information with myself than share it on the Net.
         As Google's CEO, Eric Schmidt, declared after privacy concerns: "If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place. If you really need that kind of privacy, the reality is that search engines — including Google — do retain this information for some time and it's important, for example, that we are all subject in the United States to the Patriot Act and it is possible that all that information could be made available to the authorities."
