LIDO RAPOSO

Just for clarification purposes, I'd like to say that my political views are not necessarily the same political views of the people &/or companies that I work with. In fact, as an American Citizen, 

"I Stand With President Donald J. Trump" !

 

NEW ARTIST MODEL

is an online music business 

school created by the genius Dave Kusek.

I am honored to study the business

of music with Mr Kusek via his program.

Dave is one of my major mentors.

 

 

Bobby Owsinski

I am also, pleased

to study Music Producing with

the expertise of Mr Owsinski

via his Website, Numerous Podcasts, & Books.

Bobby is also, one of my major mentors.

Joyce Kettering

Ms Kettering had managed to write 100 songs

and place 53 of them into Music Libraries

to later be used in Television, Motion Pictures, Etc.

Ms Kettering managed to do this while working full-time

in a finance job while traveling the globe in the Corporate World.

Today, Ms Kettering has since left her finance job

and now works as an Instructor Of Music Licensing

with Dave Kusek.

Joyce is also, one of my major mentors.

Michael Boezi

Co-Creator of

Create Biz

with Dave Kusek.

A program designed to help Authors,

Musicians, & Visual Artists achieve success

through content.

Mr Boezi, also owns a small business called

ControlMouseMedia, LLC

and is a consultant to other "creatives".

Micheal is also, one of my major mentors.

First, I'd like to say that I have not "gone dark" & abandoned this website despite that much of it may seem redundant every month.

Secondly, I'd like to say that "in the background", I am constantly working on projects. Therefore, I'm multitasking projects in which some projects can be completed in a matter of minutes while most projects require days if not weeks.

Thirdly, I can't list all the projects to you because I don't want to get too far ahead of myself and make any empty promises.

But, I will say that when all is ready to "properly begin", I hope that you will approve.

This may sound somewhat obtuse at the moment, but it will eventually make more sense once it reaches that point to "properly begin".

Just as preparing for any form of construction, it does take a lot of time, stamina, careful planning, and motion.

If you have any questions, you can always contact me through this website and please, realize that this Website is the "Hub" of all my updates and work to date.

So, again this is a summation of what has been happening lately regarding my music & music/videos:

 

GOAL :

I will not be starting a new FaceBook Page.

I will only participate in FaceBook "Closed Groups" only.

Especially, after the proven scrutiny of FaceBook within the past few weeks.

While my Vimeo, YouTube & possibly Instagram accounts will be centered around my art, my Twitter account (@LidoRaposo) will continue to be centered around politics supporting President Donald J Trump & this Great Nation of which I am proud to be a citizen of.

Also, I will continue to support & join the good men & women who also, support President Donald J Trump and this Great Nation in a positive way.

I have consciously decided to make this support "my cause" in my artwork.

 

ETHICS :

As a DIY artist, I am studying as well as I can.

Just as I finish one series of studying materials, I discover a new different series of studying materials to also, study & apply.

There are 2 ways to approach this:

a) rush through the material & produce an "ok" product, or

b) take the time needed & produce an "acceptable" product

I choose the latter because that is obviously the best route to follow.

Just as any other student studying, one is not released (graduated) until one fulfills their earned credits.

Therefore, in choosing the latter, the student has their best chance to succeed in their field(s) of study(ies).

So, with that said, I continue on forward carefully studying to produce the best that I can to share with all.

Yes, "forever a student" in life, but there does eventually come a time/moment to graduate & apply one's self & knowledge. And, those first few steps are approaching. Again, this Website is the "Hub".

I'm continuing to study carefully with my mentors & the businesses with which I am associated with.

I'm continuing to improve my musicianship & am gaining a better understanding of my tools (PedalBoard(s), Amps, Software Programs, Guitars, etc)

I'm working very hard to set the foundation on which to build what will hopefully be a promising future in the arts for myself & others. Thus, a journey.

 

FORMATS :

There are 3 stations that I use to make music/videos :

1) Music - consisting of writing music/lyrics, recording, mixing, producing, and mastering.

2) Visual Arts - where I choose different mediums to be mixed with film to later produce the video visualized.

3) Video - where I use a series of different video softwares to then produce & direct the video visualized.

 

POSTS :

I will keep this blog updated the first weekend of every month.

There may be times within the month that I will post regarding special circumstances.

 

Thank you for your loyal & continued support!

For The Record :

a) Sweetwater is my first choice for music equipment (any "sales Engineer" would be glad to help you and my "sales Engineer" is Adam Cesarz).

b) DiscMakers is my first "go to" for producing some of my merchandise and possibly my Brand Image (Logo).

c) Blick Art is my first choice for art materials.

d) Apple is my first choice for computers throughout the arts.

e) Attleboro Arts Museum is my favorite local Non-Profit Museum serving mainly New England and where I do like to visit for inspiration and fun.
