Imagine what would happen if you had more chords to work with... would your music really be that much better? Tony Pappas, creator of Prosonic Charts and well known for his work on the Ghosts of Orion project, put it this way,

"Chords are like colors, and a musician with only a couple of chords, is like a painter with only red and green, it's way too limiting. Having a wide variety of chords gives a musician options, and colorful chords give music a certain richness... a depth, and this book is full of them, everything from bright and beautiful to dark and demented."

About the Author

Tony Pappas is a multi-instrumentalist composer/producer, best known for his work on, "Intergalactic Highway"; the debut album from his Ghosts of Orion project.

Having a voracious appetite for music theory, Tony reached a very high level of musical understanding, and his ability to share that understanding is nothing short of inspiring, he's exceptionally good at it.

When asked why he enjoys teaching so much, he said, "I never thought I'd be teaching music, I just wanted to write and jam. But, as the years went by, I fell in love with it, and I'm really just getting started. I have some great ideas on how to help people learn, and I'm very excited about what's to come!"

As it turns out, Tony's not only great at teaching humans, he's also great at teaching computers.

In addition to being an excellent musician, Mr. Pappas is an expert software engineer. Having keyed-in his first program on the VIC-20 at the age of 10 (over thirty years ago), he has a long history in computing and has developed a considerable degree of skill throughout the years.

Tony has recognized the need to be 'on the cutting-edge', and has remained on the forefront of developing technologies and design strategies, especially in the world of music, and now, having fully integrated the two disciplines, he has taught his computer how to play the drums, piano, guitar, and bass, so it can, as he says, "help humans learn these instruments much faster and more efficiently."

Mr. Pappas is founder and president of Prosonic Studios, a music & software studio, where he composes, teaches, and creates learning & compositional tools for musicians all over the world.
