    About -UOM-
    UOM was originated in early 2007 as a multi-disciplinary project with emphasis in non- traditional, Vintage and electronic instruments, and performance technique.
    -UOM- primal energy is often in direct superposition with more sophisticated forms of sound production, such as cutting edge real-time recording and looping and the use of current and vintage electronics.
    This all-embracing approach has taken the project through a path of collaboration with the visual and performing arts. We have performed in Art Centers and galleries, during exhibition openings and artists performances. We have improvised music during video installations, contemporary dance performances and played in artist-designed sets.

    About Edilberto Aponte
    My pieces evoke critical views of social, political and cultural issues. I journal my life’s perspectives and experiences in pencil, ink, and paint-using the canvas as an abstract mirror to reflect my mental images and convey my emotions. The communion of words, lines, or shapes meld on canvas into one-becoming the allusion of my personal reality.
    My art consist of abstract drawings in pencil, color, acrylic and ink. My anxious imagination has been inspired by nostalgic memories of my poignant life events, native metropolis of San Juan Puerto Rico and South Florida.

    2. Switched to international advertising and lived in half a dozen cities: Madrid, London, New York, Mexico City, Santo Domingo, San Juan and Buenos Aires

    About David Martins
    I was born in Boston, then raised mostly in Miami.I am currently in school to become an anthropologist with my main focus on shamanic studies. I chose this path because I love to learn and teach and therefore enjoy studying the original teachers; the shamans from around the world. I have been drawing,sketching, and painting my whole life. My art has always been and always will be a way for me to record the path of my thoughts and feelings at any particular point in life. My pieces are reflections of symbols and archetypes that connect us all. Creations that speak to the subconscious mind as well as the vibratory senses

    About DOC IT! Detect Ovarian Cancer in Time
    DOC IT’s primary mission is to help find a screening test and/or cure for ovarian cancer. Our proceeds go to medical facilities dedicated to hoping that one day soon we can create proper screening for ovarian cancer, because unfortunately pap smears and regular GYN check-ups usually do not detect it until is too late. As a matter of fact, ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancers in the United States and is the fifth leading cause of cancer death among American women.

  • Gryphon DJ Competition – Heat 1 [Friday, March 7, 2014]

    A few weeks ago, I saw DJ Roland post that Gryphon Nightclub was having a DJ competition. Interested applicants had to submit a 60-minute house mix. I created said mix and decided to submit it. I felt I had nothing to lose. Well, it turns out that my mix got me chosen for the competition. I will be DJing this Friday for Heat 1 of the competition!

    I have been assigned to play in the 2nd time slot from 1:00 AM – 1:45 AM. My guests get access to an open Three Olives vodka bar before midnight, so let me know if you want to come by!
