An opportunity to be a part of Daniel Nistico’s first album Un Viaje Mistico … A Mystical Journey

Melbourne talent, Daniel Nistico (who I’ve featured on the blog previously) is, as we speak, in the recording studio laying down tracks for his very first studio album. How very exciting!

Now Daniel doesn’t have the backing of a Deutsche Gramophon or some other major record label (although I’d be surprised if that didn’t occur in the not too distant future), and so he’s self-funding the creation of his first album. As I’m sure you’d guess, that’s not a cheap undertaking, so he’s put a bit of a crowdfunding project together with the promise of some goodies for those that contribute to the creation and release of the album.

For the opportunity to be a part of and contribute to Daniel’s first album head here:

Daniel is currently studying a Masters of Music Performance at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music with Aria award-winning guitarist Antony Field and internationally renowned pianist Donna Coleman. Daniel was originally taught by his father at age 12 and studied at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) Young Academy and the Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School (VCASS).

Daniel frequently performs around Melbourne and is regularly broadcast on both ABC Classic FM and 3MBS Fine Music Radio Stations. Daniel is an active member of the Classical Guitar Society of Victoria and was a winner of their prestigious Alhambra Sadie Award. Daniel is an active performer, performing in countries including the US, Serbia, New Zealand and South America. He also represented Australia and New Zealand, winning the 2011 Lions Global Youth Music Competition, establishing himself as a concert guitarist of high calibre.

If you’d like a free download of one of Daniel’s tracks, a beautiful Scarlatti sonata, and to hear the wonderful player that you’ll be supporting head here:

Today’s post is a wee one. But an important one nonetheless!
Seeing as we’ve been up and running for the best part of a year, and 2013 just beginning to peep it’s head around the corner, I thought now would be a good time to get some feedback and thoughts from you! I want to make sure the blog is serving your needs and interests and includes the things you want to see, hear or read about.

It’s a very short survey and definitely won’t take more than five minutes to complete. It’s all completely anonymous too of course, and none of the data will be shared with anyone.  The information will only be used by me to make the blog site even better for YOU! Promise!

So here’s the link:

Head on over! And thank you!

But we couldn’t leave today without some kind of guitar stuff could we? Noooo! How about  bit of Barrios from up-and-coming Melbourne guitarist Dan Nistico? Yep?
