Arrizza - Under the Stars -The Planetarium Show 

On Saturday May 20, 2023, I had the honored privilege of performing at the Vanderbilt Reichert planetarium, one of America's best planetariums in the country.

Accompanying the music was an assortment of some of the best multimedia effects the…

Hello everyone!

Well I don't blog all the time but when I always try to post something interesting, I will make my best effort to do so. So, what's been going on in Arrizza's world? Well, it's been, for lack of a better term, COLD! - Yes, winters have been best spent indoors sipping on hot cocoa and watching Netflix lol…not always. But, time spent indoors have been quite productive for me as I have been busy in my project studio continuing to compose more music. 

As you all may know, I have released my album…

Arrizza interview - 2022 edition 

About a decade ago, I joined the musician social media website called Fandalism and uploaded a few of my videos. I also entered an self-interview which is seriously outdated.

                                                                      design for the custom rosette - some math

I dreamed of having a guitar with my own specs and attention to detail. One of those customized things is the rosette design. For this, I went to my roots and decided on a traditional Greek key styling which derived from the Classical Age of Hellenistic art. The Greek key, known as a "Meandros" in Greek, which represents the idea of infinity and Unity. For this build, I wanted to go with a…

i'm sharing my first experience with having a custom-built Spanish guitar commissioned by American luthier, Andy Culpepper.
