Phil is a graduate of Full Sail video and audio engineering college in Orlando,Florida. Currently, Phil is the chief engineer at Jax Traxx; LLC, a digital recording suite dedicated to electronic music production. Phil Green & his main partner,Scott Collins met at Full Sail Engineering School in 1996. In 1999, they decided to break ground on a studio. Scott's wife manages a video editing and production house. Space upstairs became available which fit perfectly. The original studio was built behind a record store and PA equipment rental house. This new location opens up more opportunity. Clients include all genres, transfers, beats, tracking, practice space for bands, you name it. It's a beautiful space built with love! Phil's acumen of studio engineering and production was sharpened after Full Sail at the Dallas Sound Lab. His extensive studio credits include assistant engineer for the Grammy winning album, "Kirk Franklin & The Family's Nu Nation Project" in 1998, Reverend Horton Heat's "Space Heater" on Interscope.

(C)atharsis, also known as Scott Petersen, has been spinning records for the past sixteen years. His musical inspirations are rooted in strong spirituality and the creative influence of his father, a professional jazz musician and educator. "I grew up with jazz, music students and concerts around me all the time," said Catharsis. "A high caliber of talent and passion for music is what led me to the journey I am on now." Catharsis sees electronic music as eclectic and inclusive where artists can take any influence or feeling and create with it. He uses a sequencing program with, he says, the same improvisational spirit his father uses playing guitar. "My father is a traditionally talented musician. I am just a creative mind using technology and organized sounds." When searching for records, Catharsis concentrates on labels, artists, track structure, and an overall feeling of the tune. A jazz influence and a deeper direction attract him to music, his goal being to share music and educate a crowd. Catharsis explains that sometimes that means bringing the crowd up, but also, just as importantly, expressing an affable sounds cape. Kevin Yost, Fred Everything, LTJ Bukem, Fragment Orchestra, Dzihan & Kamien, Timewriter, Bugge Wesseltoft ,Fila Brazilla, Tom Middleton and Jazzanova are a few of the many contemporary influences respected by Catharsis. The jazz greats Herbie Hancock, Bill Laswell, Oscar Peterson, Coltrane, Sun Ra and father Jack Petersen are his musical foundation. "Straight ahead jazz and all its dialects are freedom. Music is freedom. I live one day at a time. I hope to live a happy life with music being an integral part of it." Catharsis' Creed: Do not exist on self-will, love like you've never been hurt. Live slowly and perceive positively. The permanent things in life take time to develop. If we want our relationships, our skills, our accomplishments to resist the storms we all encounter, we must allow time for them to grow and deepen within us and marvel, in the meantime, at how much we can learn from the world around us.
