Kat Epple and DL
Emmy Award-winning, and Grammy-nominated composer and flutist, Kat Epple, has traveled throughout the world, collecting flutes from other cultures and will be performing on some of those unique instruments this evening. She has performed at the Guggenheim Museums and the National Gallery, has released 23 CDs of original music, and composes and produces music for television, including “National Geographic” and “PBS Nova”.

Harpist and composer, DL “Harpo” Turner, sweeps across the strings of his Hand-Made instrument “The Rose Crystal Harp”, to create a powerful and evocative musical poetry — rich, profound and deeply emotional. He has released many CDs of his own original music, and produces albums for other musicians in many styles

It was a beautiful evening. We had the equipment all set up and soundchecked, then the rain started. We packed it all back up and out of the rain. At 6:30, the rain stopped, and we set it up again, very quickly. The audience was patient with our late start.

Planet Earth 2.0

I attended Tiite’s art opening and presentation of his Planet Earth 2.0 concept. It was an inspiring event, and incredible artist, Tiite, explained his concept for a new operating system for the Earth, and for humankind. The event was well-attended, and our hosts created a beautiful, elegant event.

I performed “Prelude to World Peace” on bass flute for this extraordinary celebration.
Planet Earth 2.0

Here is how Tiite described the event:


— “Birth of Planet Earth 2.0″ event and exhibit takes place in the salon of Frame Gallery and Gift at 1830 Del Prado Blvd., Cape Coral Florida on Saturday, August 29, 2009 at 7:00 p.m.

[Aug. 26] - Worldwide Peace Marker Project Artist Ambassador for The United States, Kat Epple, will perform her original composition titled “Prelude to World Peace” at the “Birth of Planet Earth 2.0″ event Saturday.
For those of you who will be participating from “cyberspace” stay tuned for the follow-up video.

[Aug. 24th] - Two new social media components of Planet Earth 2.0 make their debut today. Tiité posts the first entry in our new Planet Earth 2.0 Blog. Titled “Calendar of Dreams” the short essay references his new painting of the same name. He writes in part, “…you can schedule your own dreams now that we have a calendar of dreams to do so.” Read more and leave comments at
In concert with the new blog, our new Flickr image site, “Planet Earth 2.0 Art” is unveiled. This site debuts with “Calendar of Dreams,” the first of a series of large scale, down-loadable and printable copies of new key works by Tiité. You can access our new image site simply by clicking on the illustrations as they appear in our blog… or, directly, through this link: and
