#JulietteBéjar in #Piano Songs — #Crowdfunding on wemakeit #ChansonFrançaise (de la très belle)
Pour faire naître l’album PianoSongs
Je cherche des fonds pour concrétiser mon album; celui-ci est déjà bien avancé: Plus de vingt chansons écrites, le producteur met à disposition son travail d’ingénieur du son, le studio professionnel, le grand piano. Mais pour faire exister le disque matériellement, il faut de l’argent, pour payer les musiciens qui enregistrent.
La réussite du projet wemakeit permet de réaliser mon premier album d’auteur, compositeur, interprète, bref, songwriter....
... et de créer une communauté avec vous, très importante pour le début de cette aventure et sa continuité.
Je suis musicienne et écrivain, d’abord pianiste née dans le monde classique.
Je compose, interprète au piano et à la voix mes propres chansons et textes. J’écris tous mes arrangements et l’intégralité de mes partitions. La poétique rencontre le travail du classique et la chanson française intemporelle.
J’ai pour mon projet plusieurs aides: Delphine Garcia amie et agent, Florian Pittet, producteur et ingénieur du son, Matthias Maurer, mon amoureux, qui prend soin de moi et de mon piano et m’aide tous les jours.
Le résultat serait un bouquet de personnages féminins, des héroïnes de roman, des notes qui empoignent le coeur, des timbres de soie, de bois et d’eau.(...)
www.kianashafiei.com Excerpts from the piano recital at The Forge Music & Arts Venue - London, UK More information:
Nocturne - Night in a Persian Garden Behzad Ranjbaran is known for music which is both evocative and colorful, and also strong in structural integrity and form. He frequently draws inspiration from his cultural roots and Persian heritage in form or subject matter, as exemplified by the tone poems of the “Persian Trilogy”, or the interpretation of sounds and styles in works such as the Violin Concerto and Songs of Eternity.
Ranjbaran’s music has been performed all over the world, including South Korea, where Awakening (commissioned by Sejong Soloists) premiered at the Great Mountains Music Festival as a celebration of peace. His music has been performed by soloists such as Joshua Bell, Renée Fleming, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, and Yo-Yo Ma, and conductors including Charles Dutoit, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Marin Alsop, Robert Spano, Gerard Schwarz, JoAnn Falletta, Miguel Harth-Bedoya, David Robertson, and many more. He has also served as composer in residence for the Philadelphia Orchestra’s summer season at Saratoga, the Fort Worth Symphony, and the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music. Some of his more notable compositions include works for soloist and orchestra. His Flute Concerto was commissioned and premiered by the Philadelphia Orchestra, with Jeffrey Khaner, flute, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, conductor. Songs of Eternity, using text from the Ruba’iyat of Omar Khayyam, was written for soprano Renée Fleming, and premiered with the Seattle Symphony under the direction of Gerard Schwarz. Joshua Bell was the soloist in the premiere performances of his Violin Concerto with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, also conducted by Schwarz. Mr. Bell went on to give the North American premiere with the Indianapolis Symphony under Mario Venzago, and gave subsequent performances with Peter Oundjian and the Toronto Symphony. Jean-Yves Thibaudet premiered the Piano Concerto with the Atlanta Symphony, conducted by Robert Spano; Thibaudet and Spano have since also performed it with the Philadelphia Orchestra.
Born on July 1, 1955 in Tehran, Iran, Mr. Ranjbaran is the recipient of the Rudolf Nissim Award for his Violin Concerto. His musical education started early when he entered the Tehran Music Conservatory at the age of nine. He came to the United States in 1974 to attend Indiana University and received his doctorate in composition from The Juilliard School, where he currently serves on the faculty.
Persian Legend (excerpt) French composer of Persian origins (b. 1905 in Samarkand; d. 1983 in Paris). His father was a rich merchant, and his mother initiated him in-to music. He was studying in Moscow when the 1917 Revolution occurred. He then left for Germany and continued his studies there, where his father wanted him to do medicine. Simultaneously, however, he studied music at the Stuttgart Conservatory, and later in Tübingen and Berlin, where he studied piano with Arthur Schnabel and composition with W. Klatt. He settled in France in 1927 and entered the Paris Conservatory, where he studied composition and orchestration with Paul Vidal.
Short Stories - Movements 2 and 4 (excerpts) Alireza Mashayekhi was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1940. He is one of the first Iranian composers who has pioneered modern music in Iran. Mashayekhi's works have been performed in Iran and abroad for more than 35 years. His first teachers in Iran were the deceased Dr. Lotfollah Mofakham Payan (Iranian music), the late Hossein Nasehi (Composition) and Ophelia Kombajian (Piano). Hanns Jelinek and Karl Schiske were his composition teachers in Vienna. His acquaintance with Hanns Jelinek encouraged him to explore a wide spectrum of 20th century music. This and his fondness of Iranian culture were the cornerstones of his artistic development. After completing his studies at the Akademie für Musik und Darstellende Kunst in Vienna, he went to Utrecht, the Netherlands, to pursue his study of electronic and computer music, which included attending lectures by Gottfried Michael König.

joutée le 23 juin 2015
From '' Pendekar Mustar '' Label: Senada -- SEP 118 Format: Vinyl, EP Country: Singapore Released: 1975
Tracklist A1 Pendekar Mustar (Kung Fu Fighting) A2 Kau Ku Kenang B1 Salbiah B2 Senyumlah Sayang
"Kung Fu Fighting" is a disco song written and performed by Carl Douglas and Vivian Hawke, and produced by Biddu.
It was released as a single in 1974, at the cusp of a chopsocky film craze, and quickly rose to the top of British and American charts. "Kung Fu Fighting" was also number one on the soul singles chart for one week. It sold nine million records worldwide, received a Gold certification from the RIAA in 1974, and won the Grammy Award for Best Selling Single in 1974. The song uses the quintessential Oriental Riff, a short musical phrase that is used to signify Chinese culture.
Kung Fu Fighting was rated number 100 in VH1's 100 Greatest one-hit wonders, and number 1 in the UK Channel 4's Top 10 One Hit Wonders list in 2000, the same channel's 50 Greatest One Hit Wonders poll in 2006 and Bring Back ... the one-hit Wonders, for which Carl Douglas performed the song in a live concert.
The Brazilian singer Fernanda Abreu covered the song as a bonus track available only on the CD version of her 1990 album SLA Radical Dance Disco Club.
Robyn Hitchcock also covered the song for the anti-poll tax album Alvin Lives (in Leeds) in 1990.
Merrill Nisker (now known by her stage name "Peaches") covered the song on her 1995 album Fancypants Hoodlum.
Patti Rothberg covered the song for the Beverly Hills Ninja soundtrack in 1997.
The song was very popular in Jamaica, and there were several cover versions by reggae artists including Lloyd Parks, The Maroons, The Cimarons, and Pluto Shervington.
Jerry Lo (DJ Jerry, Taiwan) also produced a remake of the song.
There's also a Finnish version of this song, sung by Frederik. The song's translated name is "Kung-Fu Taistelee".
The German Band Mardi Gras.bb covered the song in their 2002 album Zen Rodeo.
A cover version of the song was performed by Cee-Lo Green and Jack Black for the 2008 animated movie Kung Fu Panda.
In 2004, the German record label Echo Beach released an album entitled Kung Fu Fighting Remixes (Dub Drenched Soundscapes) that featured remixes of the track by 16 different artists including Adrian Sherwood, Dreadzone and Pole.
British dance act Bus Stop reached #8 on the U.K. charts with their 1998 remix single of "Kung Fu Fighting", which sampled the original vocals by Carl Douglas and added rap verses.
Use in film, television, & video games
The song was used as the title song in the German version of the TV series Kung Fu. It has been used in several movies and television shows since 1990 where there is a light-hearted spirit to the martial arts, including:
The Simpsons The Spirit of '76 Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie Shaolin Soccer Little Manhattan Epic Movie City of God Daddy Day Care Beverly Hills Ninja Sin noticias de Dios Scrubs Bowfinger Kung Fu Panda Rush Hour 3 The Middle You can also hear this song in a French movie of Joël Seria "Les galettes de Pont-Aven" the story of a painter in the country of Gauguin.
It also has been used in trailers for the films Kung Fu Panda, Disney's Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior, & Kung Fu Hustle, and a cover by Cee-Lo Green and Jack Black is used over the end credits of Kung Fu Panda. This version has partially rewritten lyrics more in keeping with the film's themes.
A version was recorded by Tom Jones featuring Ruby for the 1996 movie Supercop (North American re-release of 1992 Hong Kong film Police Story 3: Supercop) starring Jackie Chan. The lyrics were slightly changed to reference the film.
It is used as the theme song for the Xbox game Kung Fu Chaos. It is also one of the downloadable duet songs in the game Just Dance 2 for the Wii.
It has appeared in tv show One Tree Hill. A re-recorded version of the song by Douglas is featured in Lego Rock Band & Band Hero.
The Bus Stop version has appeared in the video game Dance Dance Revolution, and the original version appeared in Dancing Stage MAX. It was a downloadable dance on Just Dance 2.
Iron Fist mentions the first line of the song in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2.
Planet Mu artist and owner of Deathchant records, Hellfish, sampled sections of the record in his track, Iron Hand (Steelfinger remix), from the One Man Sonic Attack Force album. The style of music is hard to define and takes influence from UK breakbeat hardcore, gabber, techno, hip hop and jungle.
It was used as the song for the climatic battle vs the Ninjis in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode titled Karate Koopa, but edited out in syndicated versions and in the DVD version.

#BruceSpringsteen - It's hard to be a saint in the city (lyrics) - YouTube
It's hard to be a saint in the city
I had skin like leather and the diamond-hard look of a cobra I was born blue and weathered but I burst just like a supernova I could walk like Brando right into the sun Then dance just like a Casanova With my blackjack and jacket and hair slicked sweet Silver star studs on my duds like a Harley in heat When I strut down the street I could hear its heartbeat The sisters fell back and said "Don't that man look pretty" The cripple on the corner cried out "Nickels for your pity" Them gasoline boys downtown sure talk gritty It's so hard to be a saint in the city
I was the king of the alley, mama, I could talk some trash I was the prince of the paupers crowned downtown at the beggar's bash I was the pimp's main prophet I kept everything cool Just a backstreet gambler with the luck to lose And when the heat came down it was left on the ground The devil appeared like Jesus through the steam in the street Showin' me a hand I knew even the cops couldn't beat I felt his hot breath on my neck as I dove into the heat It's so hard to be a saint when you're just a boy out on the street
And the sages of the subway sit just like the living dead As the tracks clack out the rhythm their eyes fixed straight ahead They ride the line of balance and hold on by just a thread But it's too hot in these tunnels you can get hit up by the heat You get up to get out at your next stop but they push you back down in your seat Your heart starts beatin' faster as you struggle to your feet Then you're outa that hole and back up on the street
And them South Side sisters sure look pretty The cripple on the corner cries out "Nickels for your pity" And them downtown boys sure talk gritty It's so hard to be a saint in the city

#RIP #GuntherSchuller 's Criss Cross Variants I & II (feat #OrnetteColeman #EricDolphy #BillEvans etc) #jazz
Gunther Schuller est parti quelques jours après Ornette .. qui joue ici aussi .. tristesse . . musique exceptionnelle
Gunther Schuller, Variants on a Theme by Thelonious Monk (Criss Cross); Variants I & II. Ornette Coleman, alto sax; Eric Dolphy, bass clarinet & alto sax; Eric Dolphy + Robert DiDomenica flute; Jim Hall, guitar; Eddie Costa, vibes; Bill Evans, piano; Scott LaFaro + George Duvivier, bass; Sticks Evans, drums; The Contemporary String Quartet.
Mark Helias est de ces colosses que l'on ne peut voir avec autre chose dans les mains qu'une contrebasse. Ca tombe bien, c'est l'un des grands artisans de l'instrument. Oui, artisan ; pas technicien, pas seulement virtuose, mais artisan. C'est à dire un peu tout ça à la fois. C'est ce que l'on apprend dans l'espèce de portrait chinois qu'il propose dans les notes de pochettes de The Signal Maker, le nouvel album de son trio Open Loose sorti sur le label Intakt Records. Artisan, car celui qui a joué avec Braxton quelque temps (dans un quartet avec George Lewis, et dans un autre avec Anthony Davis et Ed Blackwell, beaux attelages...) dans les années 70, mais aussi avec toute la fine fleur de la scène alentour comme Andrew Cyrille, Barry Altschul, Marilyn Crispell et surtout Gerry Hemingway et Ray Anderson pour le trio BassDrumBone confesse aimer travailler le bois et la réparation de ses instruments pour mieux en sonder le coeur. Comment s'en étonner, tant le rapport à l'instrument de Mark Helias est fusionnel avec l'instrument ? C'est l'évidence qui apparaît au coeur de cet Open Loose où il est un très bonne compagnie, pour ce septième album en un peu plus de 15 ans. A la batterie, on retrouve Tom Rainey, toujours aussi inventeur et percussionniste et le saxophoniste Tony Malaby anguleux à souhait qui sait enflammer le propos lorsqu'il en est besoin. Un trio dans une pure tradition colemanienne tendance Ornette, mais qui sait regarder ailleurs, du côté de Lacy notamment. Ce n'est pas cette collaboration récente avec Benoit Delbecq et le regretté Jean-Jacques Avenel qui nous fera dire le contraire. Aux prémices d'Open Loose, c'était Ellery Eskelin qui tenait le saxophone ; Malaby l'a remplacé dans une dynamique assez proche,(..)
