Get more time to do the things I love
Tryin to make some music, tryin to help whenever i can however i can to make Earth a better place for all beings. Here you can listen to some of my DJ sets: http://www.mixcloud.com/joaxcol/ and here´s some music I´ve created: https://soundcloud.com/joaxcol/ http://joax.bandcamp.com/ http://youtu.be/9-ftLhXQf54 http://youtu.be/h-r-vO_Acj4
"Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the succesful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this World better than when you found it."
By the way, I´m working on a project to promote djs and musicians so if you are not a dj or a musician but you´re interested in electronic music and would like to be a part of a music project anyway, here´s your chance. There´s lots of things you can do! I´m looking forward to hear from you...
My philosophy changes from day to day as I learn new things. Currently I´m into the Hoponopono philosophy, but to me it´s always been in general about searching for freedom, free myself from my own attachments and limitations and try always to go a little further.
What's below is a copy paste from other CS profiles but because it's so genial and I don't want to forget it I put it here: "When I was 5 years old, my mum always told me that happiness is the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy". They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."
--------------------------------------------------------And I think the following one is from Nikki Sixx (correct me if I'm wrong): "One day your life will flash before your eyes, make sure it is worth watching".
I think I could say also that I'm a very spiritual person since I believe in God and the power of our souls.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I hosted and was hosted. I helped and was helped by couchsurfers.
I participated and helped out in a wonderful CS event in Thüringen. I also played at a party that was part of this event. It was a new nice experience and I met new places and new cool people :)
I love music. I´m pretty much into electronic music now, but I have a backgroung of rock and roll, hard rock, blues, jazz, punk, pop, classical music, etc... I've listened a lot to artists like Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Cure, David Bowie, Queen, Van Halen, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, The Doors, New Order, Green Day... In the music section I listed what I´m currently listening these days wich is diferent from the past, except for a couple of the above like Pink Floyd, Depeche Mode, Rolling Stones and Duran Duran.
I also enjoy very much traveling and meeting new people from all around the world. I feel that I learn a lot from those experiences and that makes me happy.
I also like skating and surfing, althoug I´m not good at it... I like nature, yoga, learning about metaphysics, watching a good movie, or reading a book once in a while...
Finally, after many many years, I´m coming back to my interest in photography again.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I made a song with my band CTX, recorded it and mixed by myself with my own equipment. Actually I made two whole records with this band but this one song had a video made by a guy that came up and say: "I wanna do a video of your song", and it ended up on MTV, MuchMusic and other music channels without us being on any record label, I mean it was something done totally independent, artisanal way getting to MTV!!!
I've crossed a little desert all alone with no water -just some orange juice that ran out after the third duna. It was a 6 hour walk under a hot sun that was melting me and I was carrying a bag and a guitar. I was about to leave behind the bag and the guitar when some biologists appeared on a jeep. They gave water and told me that the next town was just an hour away walking. I didn't mean to put myself in this situation which would have been such a stupid death. I just miscalculated the distance between one village and the other because some people said that it was 7 Km and some others that it was 17 Km. I thought that the second data was wrong and also that it was not going to be so hot so early in the morning. Also I did not find any place where to exchange money -I had just arrived from Argentina to Uruguay into a very small Village- so I could not buy more water. I was very inexperienced at that time of course :p
Teach, Learn, Share
I like to teach to play guitar, piano, teach to sing, to record and mix music, and Djing... Also I like to teach and learn new songs (actually all of this is I´ve been doing for a living in the last 10 years among with djing) I took some yoga lessons and I´ve already taught Surya Namaskar to a friend so I guess I can teach some basic yoga as well, but I'd love to learn more. I can also give an ayurvedic massage. I´ve learn a lot about metaphysics in the last years as well and I always enjoy teaching, sharing, and learning more about it.I´m good at fixing things, specially if it´s something related to audio or music (including computers and music instruments of course)I want to keep on learning German and music production. I can teach Spanish, English, and music theory and composition.
