Where can we find the royal road to reformation and change?

Awesome Encouragement from Daisaku Ikeda!

“Where can we find the royal road to reformation and change? Emerson declared: “Not he is great who can alter matter, but he who can alter my state of mind.” He strongly urged us to undergo an inner reformation. I want you to be assured that the challenge to which we set ourselves day after day – that of our human revolution – is the royal road to bringing about a reformation in our families, local regions and societies. An inner revolution is the most fundamental and at the same time the ultimate revolution for engendering change in all things.”

— Daisaku Ikeda

Ivan de Prume from White Zombie is searching for Unusually Talented Musicians!

Happy 4th Everyone!

Ivan de Prume from White Zombie is searching for Unusually Talented Musicians, Tribal Drummers, Vocalists, EDM DJs, and possible Fire and Aerial Performance Artists for a new serious long term project in Salem, Oregon!

Vocalists, Percussionists, Guitar players, Bass players, Violinists, Electronic music DJs and a variety of Performing Artists must read this.

The project will kick off with a live show at the 1st annual NW ComicFest MusicFest at the Salem, OR Convention Center on Saturday August 15th 2015

Following this show, the band will continue writing original music to record and release an album by the end of the year.

Requirements for all band member candidates:

  1. Well experienced with their instrument on all levels performing live and recording.
  2. Have own professional gear to perform.
  3. Open to a unique stage presence.
  4. Have transportation and be financially capable of supporting themselves throughout the process.
  5. Dependable for three afternoon rehearsals per week in Salem, Oregon. We’re considering rehearsals for Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays at 1pm beginning the week of July 19th.
  6. Free from drugs, alcohol or any other  issues that interfere with musicians ability to show up and/or perform.

For this particular upcoming event, the band will perform a few songs from Ivan’s former bands Healer album “Awakening” and White Zombie album “La Sexorcisto” adding a new dimension to the material to make it unique and fun. Original material may be written for the gig if time permits. Songwriting credit for all original material that is created in the rehearsal studio will be shared equally with each musician writing the material.

Musical Influences for this project include a wide range:

If you think this is the project for you or anyone you know, please visit ivandeprume.com/contact and send Ivan the message from there. Please include biography, discography, links to your music, videos, photos and perhaps a little description of what makes you unique from the others.

Ivan is also set up for virtual sessions so musicians who have their own personal recording studio to transfer files back and forth is a plus!

We will continue accepting submissions until otherwise posted.NW ComicFest 2015
