2003 - Audric Jankauskas and Rob Lewcun collaborate to create the CD titled Spontageous , published and released by aujanmusic in January 2004 Spontageous is the name of the four piece jazz-rock group that features guitar, keyboards, bass, and drums. The sound of Spontageous can be best described as an exciting mix of styles that are reminiscent of the great artists that developed and cultivated the art-form of fusion. Never the less, the main goal was to create a musical adventure that demonstrates originality and a lyrical quality that speaks for itself. 2000 - Audric co-produced and mastered Tom Alexander's critically acclaimed solo piano CD titled What's Ahead. 1999 - Audric Jankauskas and Dave Miller release their CD project titled Sponge . This collection of musical pieces encompasses recordings of jams between the two musicians dating back as far as 1991. The music on this CD was originally recorded simply to document some creative and fun jams between Audric and Dave. The music was essentially composed on the spot while recording, and includes many great guitar solos intertwined with a unique blend of groove oriented bass lines accented by an occasional splash of complex harmonies. 1996 - On November 26, Audric did a two hour interview hosted by Michael Bailey, and broadcasted by WRTI 90.1 FM radio. The live broadcast featured three of Audric's compositions, and three tracks from the OuterLimits CD. 1996 - Through the month of December, three times per week, Audric was the featured guest on the Bob Miles World Of Guitar. This local cable TV show is known for featuring some of the world's best guitarists, and it is the only TV show like it in the world! 1996 - Audric joins forces with another great keyboardist named Pat Robinson, to form and co-produce the band OuterLimits. This band is unique in the sense that unlike most other fusion bands that feature jazz musicians that incorporate styles of music other then jazz, OuterLimits consisted of five musicians from five distinct genres of music. This fresh approach resulted in a sound that was and still is appreciated by a wide range of people, regardless of their knowledge of music. 1996 - One of the nation's most prominent jazz radio stations, WRTI 90.1 FM , released the Philadelphia Jazz Showcase CD Compilation . The thirteen tracks that make up this prestigious compilation were chosen out of several hundred entries submitted by aspiring jazz musicians from the local area. The final selections were judged by a highly qualified panel of experts in the field of music. One of the tracks on this special CD was Audric's composition titled Inner Force, which received frequent airplay by WRTI 90.1 FM. It is interesting that Inner Force was the only track on the CD where the music was not performed by a group of musicians. Essentially, Audric did everything in the creation of the music, which is a testament to his abilities not only as a guitarist, but also as a composer, sequence programmer, and sound engineer. 1995 - Audric and Tom Alexander collaborate to create the theme soundtrack for the independent motion picture Philly Flash, released by Impulse Entertainment. Audric also played guitar soundtracks throughout the movie. 1993 - 1994 - Audric played guitar for the incredible World Is band led by keyboardist extraordinare Tom Alexander. World Is was showcased on the 1994 Ergo Magazine Music Sampler, as well as performing on a live NPR radio broadcast on the evening of Dec. 27, 1994.

Audric was among the (30) talented winners chosen out of 630 entries that received special commendations for meritorious musicianship. He was cited as being a very impressive over-the-top fusion player, with vocal-sounding whammy touches and unusual turns of phrase. Very impressive!
