My new CD is done, and I would like to get some copies out there. For the first five people who email me and request a copy, I will send one to you as a gift for your interest. Please put “Free CD” in the subject line, and include a shipping address. All I ask in return is for you to tell me how you found my site. Soon davehinzflute.com will be completely redesigned. Many new developments are in the works, and I am excited for the changes that are unfolding. I plan to have more interactivity, so that I may engage in a fun way with you all who may be interested in my music.  So, lite up my inbox, and I will get the CDs out to you.

New Web Master Needed

Again, or maybe still, I am looking for a new web master. I really want to find a marriage made in heaven this time, and develop a long lasting and prosperous working relationship with a stellar web master, who will help to bring my site to a whole new level. The basic ingredients are there, and now the site needs to be completely reworked and taken to a high level of professionalism. I welcome dialogue and proposals from anyone interested, wherever you may be. And I am ready to pay good money to the right person or company who will make my site shine & dazzle. I am waiting for this new revival to flourish before implementing SEO, and also before doing numerous other foundation building activities.

My web site has to be the best that can be had, and must represent me at the highest level. I am on a global campaign, to promote my recordings, and develop support for touring with my future band in the most professional way that I can muster.  So, please get in touch if you might have what it takes, or may know someone.

Working together, a miracle is just around the corner.

Aleutian CD To Feature New Music

My CD of massage oriented music, Aleutian Meditation, is going to have some new music on it soon. This recording, which began its life as a cassette in 1989, and was remastered as a CD many years later, after becoming nearly extinct, is now going to get new life once again. My good friend, pianist, arranger, producer, & recording engineer, Mike Kapitan, is going to record with me, and together we will create new music that will fill up available recording space on this old project.

Some curious things have happened with this music. Shortly after being reborn as a CD, it got a great review in Massage Magazine, with some 80,000 issues going into global circulation. This in turn led to a contract with a distributor of massage oriented music with a company called At Peace Media. Now, years later, there are maybe 20 distributors globally selling it. A simple search engine query for “flute music for massage” will bring you right to it, as one of the first listings. Even just “massage music” will get you to this seasoned CD.  Recently, it was sold out on some Asian site. Little ‘Ol Me, sold out in Asia!

Thanks to you all out there who have helped to keep this music alive. Now if I could somehow manage to get paid for it, that would be spectacular. Only my original distributor is buying them from me.  The deal is though, if these folks are not buying them from me, then they will not get the most current version, and may also be involved in copyright violations, as it does appear that they are being manufactured by others without my permission or involvement.  Part of the problem with bootlegged music is that the artist does not get any money, and this sometimes results in less, or no new music being recorded. So, to anyone who really enjoys certain music, if you strive to buy it from the original source, a record label perhaps, or best directly from the artists who produced it, you will feel better about your purchase, and will be helping to encourage new music from these musicians.

It seems that Aleutian Meditation is rising to global prominence, in a world that has countless recordings of the massage oriented variety. For this I am very grateful, even if I am not being paid for my work. Perhaps my payment will come someday in the form of people buying tickets to my concerts in far away places. Bootleg or not, this would be a wonderful outcome for this and other recordings of mine to have created.

So, thanks to all for your continued support. I hope we may meet someday.
