With the so called end of the world being so heavily promoted and anticipated in today's society through the media, a truth sent from the past is about to rock the world. A new energy form taking the shape of a human avatar has been specially sent to the present time to help aid our planet on this transitory period. Through orchestrations of exotically arranged compositions in sounds & frequencies that will undoubtedly excite the subatomic particles within the human anatomy, he is set to revolutionize the planet and help pave the way for future generations. It is both scientific and artistic; a bridge or transition into a different world; a better world. The downloaded compressed mental files have allowed this being of light to not only automatically attain instant knowledge of previous lives and experiences, but also, information regarding the present and future. Instruments like the piano have become second nature to him and ironically enough, he, himself, has become a vital instrument for the grand change that will envelope our universe; a better future awaits. You see, Mayan scholars knew that no, this isn't the end of the world, but an end of a time, a chapter if you will, in which the human specie will awaken, free itself, and and rise with vigilance as the truth begins to resonate deep within the true self. Consoles, hardware, and software like the SSL, Protools, and Reason are tools of the trade that have allowed the ever so eccentric Ulises, a light sent from the heavens, to successfully create sonic tones & harmonies that awaken and activate the theater of the mind. With heavy infectious Timbaland-esque beats, strong, smooth silky pipes, and catchy lyrics, Ulises manages to capture audiences from various countries without borders or restrictions holding him back. By daring to defy imagination and continuing to paint music as seen in his dreams, he manages to bring a new, strong sound into this monotonic music industry, adding vibrant colors into this world and infusing music that shares the universal language and codes. The same stream of life that runs through our veins runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measure; we're all connected. Ulises is only here to shake things up, just as it was destined. 'Tis the time.
- Singer, Songwriter, Producer, & Engineer
Always musically inclined, ULISES knew he wanted to do something involving music. Dancing and performing at the local festivals every year had become a custom. Private piano lessons that began at the young age of eleven and involvement in the middle school’s band only affirmed his passion for music. But it wasn’t until high school that he began to seriously consider it as a career. After graduating third in his class and receiving several honors and awards, ULISES flew off to St. Paul, Minnesota to attend one of the states most prestigious private music schools- McNally Smith College of Music. He’d always dreamed of creating his own original pieces- his songs, and longed to work in professional studios where he could learn about the gear and equipment. His desires to increase his musical knowledge and widen his musical horizons motivated him to continue strong till the end regardless of the challenges that presented themselves in his every day-to-day life, and in 2006 after two years of hard work, he graduated with an Associates Degree in Music Production. He not only learned how to work with programs like Pro tools, Reason, and Logic, but also managed to learn how to run studio gear like SSL consoles (4000 & 6000), Digi boards, and Radar. Although he achieved several of his goals, there was still one thing missing that was necessary to complete this chapter of his life and essentially start a new one- the release of a CD. Throughout those years in school, he managed to create a number of tunes that later helped give birth to his debut album PROJECTION BEAUTIFUL which was released via his newly found record label FODUT 6 RECORDS. Containing thirteen zesty tracks, PROJECTION BEAUTFIUL steadily launched him into the spotlight. Reviews from local magazines and newspapers began to pour in, all giving him nothing but positive reviews. Performing had become a priority; creating fans- a challenge he was willing to take. After the release of his sophomore album MUSICALLY PROMISCUOUS in 2007, fans were quick to notice and confirm that ULISES was here to stay. As more people began to note the star qualities he possessed, more opportunities began to present themselves. Music enveloped his life. With heavy infectious Timbaland-esque beats, ULISES was able to captivate audiences once more and move them to his rhythmic tunes. With CD’s selling hot like fire, he began building a steady fan base; performances continued to increase and the press raved about this future star. Collaborations with other talents, TV show appearances, and radio play began to take off; unconditional support from the people was and continues to be overwhelming. Now, a year after his 2007 release, he’s ready to embark on another musical journey. With his third solo effort, FЯEΩUENCIES OF BЯI₤₤IΛNC€; S۞UNDS O₣ COLOЯ, ULISES promises to bring NOTHING but the best. Sexy boudoir and kinky jibber-jabber sung to dancy records and compiled along romantic, soft, love tunes showcases his versatility yet provides the perfect elements for this string of hits which fans anxiously await. His maturity and creativity will be captured through the exquisitely well produced beats. Catchy lyrics and a magnificent, tantalizing voice promise to make THE MTD a massive success. All in all, ULISES continues to grow as an artist. A valuable investment and the future of Pop, he’s an icon in the making.
With his Prince-like qualities, Usher-esque voice, and Enrique Iglesias latinolicious flava, ULISES is bound to take the music industry by storm. In a market filled with wannabe stars, a fresh, passionate, driven, yet talented, creative mind that lives & breathes music can’t go unnoticed. It’s safe to predict that a brilliant, glorious future of fame awaits him. =P
- Story behind the name ULISES
With the first child due in a matter of weeks, a young, beautiful, twenty-two-year-old woman finally decided to do what she had wanted to do for days. She’d mustered up the courage to tap into the unknown through a well-known card reader from her native small, rural town in Mexico. What did the future hold for her? How was her life going to change? She was scared. Her nerves were astray. As she walked to the brown, lifeless hut sitting on top of the hill, she questioned herself, “Should I or should I not?” She knocked on the wooden door and anxiously waited for it to open. The wind had stopped blowing; the full-moon appeared to have brightened and the sky had darkened. All of sudden, a small frail woman in her mid sixties opened the door and said, “What took you so long?” Apparently, she knew this young lady was going to be paying her a visit. After hesitantly stepping inside, the door closed. With a lamp in hand, the card reader directed my mom into a room that was covered with religious relics. After both women sat down without an exchange of words, the card reader began. She told my mom she was going to have a boy. He was going to do things nobody in her family had ever imagined; the sky was the limit. He was going to be ambitious, hard working, diligent, creative, passionate and driven; some things were just meant to be. He would be a force that would inspire. He was water yet would fight for everything he wanted; he was a hue that would color up her world: a hero. His soul would live on forever even after his tragic death. His voice would be remembered by many. His name...ULISES.
As a kid, I never liked my name. I thought it was really weird and never really learned to appreciate it until my teen years when I began to see that ULISES wasn’t such a common name. I liked the fact that it was a bit unique. I then decided to do some research on it to find out what it meant. The information I found was interesting. Odysseus, from Greek mythology and The Odyssey, was also known as Ulises, meaning “the one who is hated.”
