Now that we have your attention...
Who is Project S!ne...
WHO ARE WE AND WHAT IS PROJECT S!NE ALL ABOUT?? WE ARE A GROUP OF 2 HARD WORKING DJ'S/PRODUCERS AND ARTISTS OURSELVES. LET US INTRODUCE OURSELVES INDIVIDUALLY SO YOU KNOW THE WHO PART....
FIRST ON THE LIST IS DJ/PRODUCER/ARTIST, ANDY COACHE AKA "KID OPTIMUS". THIS GUYS DOES IT ALL AND THEN SOME, ALL WHILE STAYING ON POINT WITH PROJECT S!NE, AND ALSO KEEPING UP TO DATE W/ALL & ANYTHING RELATED TO ELECTRO HOUSE. NOT ONLY DOES HE SPIN BUT HE PRODUCES HIS OWN MUSIC AND HAS A NUMBER OF ORIGINAL TRACKS AND REMIXES UNDER HIS BELT, MOST OF WHICH ARE SIGNED BY LABELS AROUND THE GLOBE. IN THE MIDST OF HIS MUSIC HE DOES SOME SERIOUS SPRAY-PAINT MURALS WHICH YOU CAN FIND RIGHT HERE ON THE PROJECT S!NE WEBSITE.
NEXT UP IS KENNY WILLIAMS AKA "KILA TRAX". THIS GUY IS A DJ & SOME PRODUCTION WITH "KID O", AS THE 2 OF THEM FORM K.O.K.T .. KILA IS NOT ONLY A CO-FOUNDER AT PROJECT S!NE, HE IS ALSO THE NEW ENGLAND ARTIST MANAGER FOR "KEEP ON SMILEN" WHICH IS WELL KNOWN IN THE N.E. MUSIC SCENE FOR BRINGING BIG NAMES TO N.E.. BEYOND THOSE TITLES KILA HAS RAN NUMEROUS NIGHTS IN AND AROUND BOSTON AND IS WELL CONNECTED WITH MANY OF N.E.'S TOP TALENTED DJ'S/PRODUCERS, WHICH HE IS HOPING THAT SOME OF THE TALENT HE HAS RUN INTO OVER THE YEARS, WILL AT SOME POINT BE ON THE WEEKLY WEB-SHOW.
NOW THAT YOU HAVE MET US, LET US FILL YOU IN ON WHAT WE ARE ALL ABOUT AND WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO...
PROJECT S!NE WAS CREATED TO HELP STRUGGLING DJ'S AND ARTISTS. THE IDEA CAME FROM KID AND KILA HAVING ABOUT 20 YEARS EACH IN THE DJ SCENE AND NOT BEING BOOKED ON A NORMAL BASIS.. WE WERE ASKED MANY TIMES "WHY AREN'T YOU GUYS BOOKED MORE?" AND THE ANSWER MAY SHOCK YOU...IT'S ALL ABOUT WHO YOU K NOW AND NOT YOUR WORK IN THE SCENE OR YOUR TALENT BEHIND SOME DECKS OR CDJ'S. WE SAT BACK AND THOUGHT ABOUT IT AND OUR ANSWER TO THIS PROBLEM IS SIMPLE... PROJECT S!NE IS BORN... WITH THIS WE WANT TO GET AS MANY PEOPLE INVOLVED WITH US AND ALMOST BECOME A HUB CENTRAL FOR DJ'S AND ARTISTS TO FIND EACH OTHER BUT ALSO TO SHARE OUR CLIENTS WORK WITH ALL SO THEIR WORK IS SEEN OR HEARD BY MORE THAN JUST THEIR FRIEND LISTS..
BY DOING THIS OUR WAY, WE WANT TO ELIMINATE THE "EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF" TYPE OF ATTITUDE THAT IS HAUNTING THE SCENE...SEEMS LIKE NO ONE IS OUT TO HELP EACH OTHER AND IS ALL ABOUT "ME ME ME".. WHICH IS NOT HOW THE SCENE IS SUPPOSED TO BE TREATED, MANY YEARS AGO, EARLY ON IN OUR MUSIC CAREERS AND EVEN BEFORE THAT, THE DANCE MUSIC SCENE WAS ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC AND TRYING TO HELP ONE ANOTHER BY SHARING MUSIC AND EXPERIENCES.. FACE TO FACE AT AN EVENT OR DRIVING IN YOUR BUDDY'S CAR AND POPPIN IN THE MIX CD, THE DJ HANDED YOU THE NIGHT BEFORE, WAS THE WAY THINGS USED TO GO. BUT NOW IN THE DAYS OF TECHNOLOGY AND SOCIAL MEDIA THIS HAS FALLEN TO THE WAYSIDE.. SOME PEOPLE DO THIER HOMEWORK, BUT NOW ANYONE AND EVERYONE CAN GET A LAPTOP AND THINK "I'M A DJ NOW" WITHOUT EVEN DOING SOME RESEARCH ABOUT THE HOW AND WHY THE SCENE IS WHAT IT IS..TIMES CHANGE AND WE GET THAT BUT WE ALSO WANT TO CHANGE WITH THE TIMES BY DOING SOMETHING OUT OF THE NORM BY CREATING "PROJECT S!NE"
SO recently Andy (Kid O) purchased a new home. One of his main goals in this venture was to build a professional studio facility for Project Sine to host our weekly live broadcasts. This studio will be fully equipped with a slick designed plug and play dj booth, multiple full HD webcams and camcorders, crisp, clean sounding monitors, powerful computers to drive our broadcasting command center with professional video editing software, a full bathroom including a shower for guests of our shows and a small room to be used as an art studio. We are proud to announce that construction has officially begun!
There are a lot of moving parts in this project. What follows is a short summary of all the elements. Stay tuned as we take you through each piece of this evolving puzzle.
SOUNDPROOFING: As we plan to connect sound from our state of the art dj booth directly into our command center, soundproofing will only be applied as needed for the performer behind the decks. With this in mind, we can focus on the aesthetic look of the studio for the viewers.
GREEN SCREEN: As each artist and show will be unique, we wanted to give the studio a different feel for each episode without having to change or rearrange the studios setup or configuration. We have decided that with today’s technology we could easily achieve this with the use of a green screen. Each artist will be able to choose the type of environment projected on the green screen to match his or her music and personality.
LIGHTING: Lighting can be a problem with the use of a green screen. Shadows can cause images to appear unclear. LED strip lights will be installed to fully illuminate the green screen thus solving this issue.
STUDIO COMPUTER: We need a powerful enough computer to handle all the video and audio processing in the studio space. We currently have a laptop capable handling live stream broadcasts but plan on building a monster from bare-bones that will allow us to do a lot more at the same time. This computer will take some time to build but will be well worth the wait.
CAMERAS: We want our viewers to get nothing but quality video when watching our live streams. We have purchased several different HD web cams and camcorders for use of multiple angle shots in the studio and the ability to record anywhere when we travel to music/art festivals or events.
STUDIO AUDIO: We recently purchased some gorgeous white Rockville studio monitors just to start. As Project Sine takes off and begins to grow, we will be upgrading our sound and equipment to improve overall quality.
AESTHETICS: The dj booth will have a beautiful wood finish and the ability to dress up with props to match the theme of each show. The drop down ceiling will be black and completely set up with fiber optics to emulate stars and galaxies. The floor tiles installed will have glossy black finish to reflect the fiber optics giving the look of being in space. We plan to dedicate one of the
walls as our art gallery displaying works from Project Sines featured artists. Lastly, we will have a comfortable love seat and chair for visitors to relax and enjoy the show!
So there you go. It's a big project and we look forward in sharing our progress and to be able to bring quality art and musical entertainment to you for years to come! THE PROJECT HAS BEGUN!!!!
