BT has been a big influence to both Audesi and the Underground Bass Masters since we first saw him on tour back in 1998. If you like his work, please repost his information and if you know an information at all, please contact him right away at email@example.com. Help recover his work and equipment. Thank you so much.
I wish I was addressing our community under different circumstances. Unfortunately an event has occurred that in my opinion warrants a unique approach that ends not only in a solution for the situation that I have found myself in, but also takes a fresh look at how we can help better serve our entire community as a whole. I have been robbed of much of my current gear, for both recording and three different live shows.
I will pay anyone either $20,000 US Dollars or my equivalent time as a producer in exchange for the name and affress of the perpetrators. This information will be more helpful to me, than just getting my gear back. Over 150k dollars of gear was stolen, including my main show computer containing the entire show for This Binary Universe. THis is priceless to me, as is my Hartmann Neuron and Dave Smith Poly-Evolver.
This list is a very fraction of what was stolen:
- Dave Smith PolyEvolver (Serial #271) + flight case serial number (FZKB61W)
- Hartmann Nueron + flight case – Has my Patches in it
- MacPro 2.3Ghz Dual-core Xeon, 4gigs RAM (Serial # OWC53FB1GD4GBK), 2 hard-drives
(10,000rpm Western Digital-WDGWD1500ADFD and 250gb harddrive)
- Furman SPB-8C pedal board, Line6 powersupply, Boss TU-2, HBE Power, Scream w/Fat boost, Electro Harmonix Memory Man Deluxe, Morley Alligator Volume Pedal
- Line 6 Variax 700 (Black) – wonky tuning knob and TBU tunings
- Novation ReMote SL 61-Key
- 2 Roland VP-550′s + flight cases (FZKB61W)
- SE ribbon mic and Titan
- M-audio Condenser microphones, Solaris and Luna
- 2 sets of Shure E5 InEar monitor
As many of you know, I am interested in the human condition and the spiritual nature of all of the work that we as a community create. I am not asking for this information for retaliation. I am asking for this information and implementing an unothadox approach in the hopes of actually recovering my music and equipment.
I would like to formally initiate a community project in this forum and am interested in starting a not for profit corporation / reclamation project that serves the music community in two ways:
A simple subscription service you can sign up for to register and “thumbprint” all your gear with photo log (unique markings, etc.) And serial numbers, so if something is stolen from you and resold, either on ebay or other online retailers, or in a pawn shop, ect, it can be found and returned. Tagging (or Microchiping is another option.) More importantly that if you are an aspiring musician who isi unable to afford gear that is new organiztion collects new, old, donated, unused gear and software from musicians and manufactures, (such as discontinued and backlisted items, or if 10 percent of all recovered gear was designated for this project) and gives these to musicians and producers that can’t afford to buy them. We can also create educational wordshop opportunities where the participants could leave the workshop with the gear they need.
To start this, we would need an attorney and or law firm with expeience in setting up non-profits that would work pro-bono and many prominent musicians and companies willing to start this initiate to help create a different climate of possibility for aspiting musicians that provides opportuity for all to create. Not only do I want to protect our communities ability to make music and keep things they have earned, but also create work opportunities and workshops for people that are coming up.
In this country, I feel like amny, if not all of us feel disconnected from the possibiliy of actually effectuating real and lasting change that effects others in an impactful and empowering way. Maybe this personal setback, will make it possible for some kid who can’t afford an audio interface, some software, a computer and other things needed to make music, even one person, the opportunity to make music that brings light to a place deeply in need of it.

This wasn’t on the list. A dk. green, 6string Yamaha bass guitar with an inlayed Mother of Pearl “infinity symbol” (figure 8 ) in the lower neck, slightly off center.
If we can find either this guitar or the Neuron, we’ve more than likely got the theives. Both of those items are rare. If you do come across either of them, or anything else, do not approach the person or establishment. Call the police!
(I’m looking for snapshots of the paintings)
Thanks for all your support!

Polaroid Kiss – Love in Transition
I just finished co-writing, producing, mixing and mastering Love in Transition for Polaroid Kiss. There’s a dramatic difference. I’ve added totally new drum programming and patterns. Sound design, synth parts and changes with the bass line. A lot of vocal editing on Tom’s performances. It really pops out from the demo.
Credits: Tom Bennett, Brandun Reed & Earl Dixon
Produced by: Brandun Reed & Earl Dixon
Mixed & Mastered by: Earl Dixon
Love in Transition is available as part of the White Lies and White Lines single on iTunes. Here’s a link:

Audesi – Sifting Through Solitude
I looked out the window, the sky was gray.
Everything that I’ve known has long since passed away.
I walked outside without locking the door,
I got in my car and I drove away.

Audesi – Where the Sky Turns Blue Again Audio Journal
I don’t know where the sky turns blue,
with me and you, where the sky turns blue again.
Singing along the same old song,
I’m starting to see where I’ve been going wrong.
When time leans down to pick us up,
We will learn to drink from lifes cup.
Our souls will burn a mark in God’s design,
Our World will define itself in due time.
Audesi bumper stickers are now available from Cafepress.
