Here's some new music ! "Those Lost Evenings". This hybrid piece starts with a Duduk solo, and is then joined half-way through by Piano and Qanun. Quiet, pensive & contemplative.

I Want Feedback  - 
 
I'd like a recommendation for a new monitor for my music studio.  I need something BIG so that I NEVER have to lean in.  I do a lot of editing and composing at the computer (I also use my music keyboards, of course, but still, I do a lot of work at the computer, too).  (I use Logic.)

I'm thinking 40" would be about right.  I'd like recommendations -- brand & model.

I had cervical (neck) spine surgery in February, and after I get the brace off (someday, over the rainbow...) (that's what it seems like, anyway !), I'm going to need to maintain Good Posture.  That means not leaning in to see what's on the screen.

Thanks in advance !

This is fun.  Quentin Tarantino, Uma Thurman & John Travolta celebrating the 20th anniversary of Pulp Fiction at the Cannes Film Festival.

Film director Quentin Tarantino just couldn't resist the chance to pay tribute to his own classic Pulp Fiction as he trod the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival.

Thanks !  What I'm more looking for is recommendations for specific brands/models, since some of them suck and some don't, and I'd like to get people's recommendations.  :D

Look at this beautiful message I got from a pianist on SoundCloud today:

"Hi Jojo - I'm just listening to your tracks now, they're all so beautiful. I haven't had a lot of chances to listen to your tracks before, but seems like I had a sudden shock listening to them, they're so truely beautiful and emotional....I'll be on the stage in a concert tomorrow night, I was feeling a bit nervous tonight, but your music touched my soul, and inspired me so much. I don't normally write messages but just really wanted to say "thank you" for your wonderful music. with big respect,"

That just made my whole week !!!

JoJo Zawawi -- Composer & Pianist
Introduction
I'm a composer and a pianist.  Yes!, I score films & Yes!, my music is available for licensing. I also like to write, carve wood, paint, cook and whatever. Blah blah blah.

My web site:  www.jojozawawi.com

SOME REVIEWS OF MY MUSIC:

"Genius composer...." (Chick Corea)

"Improvisational genius...." (Los Angeles Valley News)

Some other reviews:

"Soaking me in music straight to the bones ... Defying convention and free from coercion, JoJo's music -- music that takes hold of your innermost and compels you to close your eyes and feel it, imagine it, savor it. It brought about a rush of inspiration. Genius...."

"I just sat down in my chair, put on your CD, and wow! It was just so beautiful. The music went into every fiber of my being. It was absolutely incredible."

"She's amazing. She just makes up music on the spot, and it's BEAUTIFUL. She's a genius!"
