On 2/2/2010, the artist formerly known as Timothy Harada passed into oblivion.
And from out of the smoldering ashes of the funeral pyre emerged the resurrected TVC-16 - Son of TVC-15, brother of HVC-3, singer, writer, thinker, trickster, bodhisattva and now podcast host.
TVC-16 has emerged from a sea of change with a new single: It's All Up to You, produced by Remi Desroques of Wave Reader Productions and he is in the process of recording a full CD with him, featuring Yuji Kasai on guitar.
Though TVC-16 has adopted many nomenclatures over the years, including Debussy Xanthankis, Debut X, Timmy Gianakos, Tim VanCampen, and Timothy Harada, as Shakespeare once wrote, "a rose of any other name smells just as sweet." Therefore, with his resurrection, TVC-16 has dissolved all of his former masks to reveal his true self.
TVC-16 is the son of TVC-15 (you may or may not remember the song written about her by David Bowie during his drug tripping days, but even he doesn't remember).
TVC-16 left Eagle Peak in Kuon Gonjo to come to this muddy swamp to show other Earthlings their true nature as Buddhas.
With a voice of "wonderful sound," TVC-16 sings, writes, laughs, swims naked in the ocean, dances and does many other things we won't mention here.
In one of his former incarnations, TVC-16 was a student at the new Soka University of America in Orange County California, the still evolving premier institute of peace, environmental, self transformation, empowerment studies of the 21st century. His writings from that great citadel of learning have been published in four books (See The Collected Writings From Soka University of America). There he learned (among many other things) through the great teachers, incredible fellow students and from his mentor in life, Daisaku Ikeda that, yes it is true, as Daisaku Ikeda wrote, "A great revolution in just one single individual will help achieve a change in the destiny of a society and, further, will enable a change in the destiny of humankind."
In a prior incarnation TVC-16, wrote a semi-autobiographical, Buddhist discovery novel, Myth Shattering, where he appears as "Debut X."
"Let your soul fly free and naked" and take the journey through evolution with TVC-16 on his new podcast: The Peace From the Far East Podcast.
