My choice of music is trance music with traditional instruments in the mix. Not only will I be showcasing my favorite genre, electronica; but I will also be putting traditional and cultural aspects in it. Enya is the perfect example of the Celtic sound I am looking for. These include Celtic instruments and human voices which correspond to European folk music. This holds a significance to me as it reflects my heritage and the cultures my ancestors came from. Here I am also showcasing the Rainbow, the symbol I am using for my icon/logo for the website and album art. So what does the rainbow have to do with Electronic Music?
I put the rainbow logo on pretty much everything I make, including my Youtube channel and videos. The rainbow has always been something dear to me since I was a kid. It was showcased on my favorite cartoons and characters. It always made things look so colorful! You can view the song I've written about this here.
A full length new professional remastered version coming soon to bandcamp.
Also, I have always been fascinated by real rainbows. Ah! The beauty of God's creation. I even took pictures of some of them. Amazing!
I showcased this idea with one of my teachers at Full Sail University. It was one of the assignments I was required to do for my Game Art degree program. In the advertisement assignment I included the rainbow symbol as a part of the background. My intent was to showcase German culture and electronic music, including my rainbow logo. One of the critiques the teacher made was that people nowadays know it as a symbol of gay pride or the LBGT. I don't necessarily agree with the life style. I do respect the fact that others have different views, but what may mean one thing to one person may mean something entirely different to me. That is when I told her that it was my logo. I also explained to her what it meant to me. Here I am spelling it out!
In light why did I choose the Rainbow logo? And why did I title my first album: “Rainbow of Promise"? This Biblical symbol depicts the story of Noah’s flood. The rainbow symbolizes God’s promise to never flood the earth again. It holds the reminder that God cleansed the earth of the genetic corruption of the human race (what we call trans-humanism today). By the flood, God destroyed the giants who were the children of the watchers, and all of those who were corrupted by them. Noah and his family were the only pure genetic stalk of Adam left on the earth. Everyone else on the earth was corrupt. The original animals were also saved from corruption. Two of each animal was brought on the ark with Noah and his family, and seven of each clean animal. According to the Book of Enoch and the Book of Genesis and Jasher, the practice of the blending of one animal species to another was also practiced. These fallen Angels or watchers were responsible for teaching human kind this great evil. Right before the flood, they were sent to everlasting chains of darkness forever. Read the book of Enoch to find out more.
God's promise also refers to Salvation. In the book of Acts, we see the new birth take place for the very first time. When Jesus said: "the comforter; whom the Father will send in my name; he will teach you all things and bring to remembrance what I have said to you," he was talking about the Holy Ghost, the promise to those who obey the gospel. To read more about this see my testimony here: My Personal Testimony.
The colors of the rainbow and their symbols:
As Christians, it is the seven color rainbow and the meaning of each color that holds significance to us and our faith in God's promise.
The butterfly relates to the rainbow as it represents a new beginning and the new birth. According to the scripture, we must be born again of the water and of the spirit. - See John 3:5
So lets take back what the enemy has stolen. The Rainbow is a symbol of a promise not a symbol of pride.
Here is what the scripture tell us about the rainbow.
"God said, "This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all successive generations; 13I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth. 14"It shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow will be seen in the cloud,…" - Genesis 9:13
When we see the bow, it should remind us of the covenant he made with the earth. We're taking back the rainbow!

New logo. I wanted it to be more relevant to #EuropeanCulture. I've had people comment on my stand-alone rainbow symbol and mistook it as a representation of well... something else. This is much closer to the idea I wanted to represent along with the rainbow #GodsPower, and the Celtic cross #Faith.
