Sweet music!

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, July 1, 2014 10:47 AM


A bit of a edu-tisement for U.F. but this graphic has a ton of info points on music and it's value in learning.

Terry Doherty's curator insight, July 1, 2014 12:44 PM

The bottom line is that U of F wants you to think about being a music educator. I really focused on the research about how music helps with language skills.

Shpongle: 'I Don't Think We Can Abandon Psytrance. I’m Certainly Not Going To'

Shpongle: 'I Don't Think We Can Abandon Psytrance. I’m Certainly Not Going To' | ELECTRONICAPEDIA | Artistry & Events | Scoop.it

"There he goes. One of God's own protoypes. Some kind of high-powered mutant never considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die." Hunter S. Thompson wasn't talking about Raja Ram, but..

Webgrrl's insight:

 At 74 years, Raja is still touring the world with his own singular brand of madness. Like some Pied Piper from beyond the doppelbereich, he dances about the stage playing the flute, "throwing hats to the people" and leading dusty dance floors into phantasmagorical states of rapture and delight. He's a quarter of the legendary psytrance act 1200 Mics and half of the strange, divine and utterly unclassifiable beast that is Shpongle with Simon Posford. - Pulseradio (read more..)

Webgrrl's insight:

just saw this at thisiscolossal - you should too! check the vimeo video

 

~ The Yabahar is a new acoustic instrument designed by Istanbul-based musician Görkem Şen that emits music right out of a retro sci-fi movie, a remarkable feat considering there isn’t a bit of electricity involved. The Yabahar can be played in a variety of different ways using mallets or with a bow, relying on a combination of two drum-like membranes, long springs, and a tall fretted neck to create music...

Illegal warehouse parties have proliferated since the state's new liquor laws were introduced, according to club owners and music promoters

Webgrrl's insight:

Illegal warehouse parties have proliferated since the state's liquor laws were changed, according to club owners and music promoters, who say the partygoers are trying to escape 1.30am lockouts and 3am last drinks in the CBD and Kings Cross.


The underground raves are not licensed and are known for unregulated drinking, drug use and potential fire hazards in unsafe buildings. Popular sites include disused warehouses or studios in the inner-city industrial belt between Marrickville and Alexandria, but also old army barracks in areas including Mosman.

new Thump documentary Come With Me |  Skream talks leaving dubstep | ELECTRONICAPEDIA | Artistry & Events | Scoop.it
Skream opens up in a new documentary.
Webgrrl's insight:

“It [dubstep] was about a vibe, almost meditation at one point,” Jones says.  It just wasn’t exciting any more, it just got the point where it was all about drops.

 

Oliver ‘Skream’ Jones’s departure from the genre he helped create as a London teenager has been well documented, but new Thump documentary Come With Me goes into more depth than before, as Jones talks about the early days of the UK’s dubstep scene through to its world domination, his subsequent disillusionment and move into making and playing house, techno and disco.

When Ralph Erenzo wants to shake up a batch of his Hudson Baby Bourbon, he wheels in the sub-woofer and cranks up the dubstep right next to the barrels.

 

"I call it sonic maturation," says the eccentric founder of New York bourbon company Tuthilltown Spirits. "I have no scientific evidence for it, but I think the vibrations help to develop the colour and aroma more quickly.

Webgrrl's insight:

10 signs you're a veteran raver | We don't stay young forever. It's the unfortunate truth about life, and it especially applies to going out. After a while, things just aren't the same. You need more rest, everyone in the place seems like they're half your age, and the guy who used to be your favourite DJ doesn't even play the same style of music. If one or more of these applies to you, consider yourself a veteran rave (via pulseradio)

Trialling a sniffer dog-free music festival could be a valuable experiment, according to drug safety and policy experts.  It follows the plea by Australian band Art Vs Science to abandon the use of drug-detection dogs at this month’s Splendour in the Grass event to reduce the number of “panic” overdoses.

What Beats by Dre Are Actually Doing to Your Ears

What Beats by Dre Are Actually Doing to Your Ears | ELECTRONICAPEDIA | Artistry & Events | Scoop.it
There's an epidemic we aren't talking about.
Webgrrl's insight:

Last week, Apple purchased Beats Music for $3 billion — the largest acquisition the company has ever made. With it, the company acquired Dr. Dre and longtime Interscope Geffen A&M Records executive Jimmy Iovine, the men behind Beats and a "sound revolution" who are actually doing irrevocable damage to our ability to appreciate music.

 

They aren't alone in it. Beats is just the biggest representative of the cultural trend of constant headphone use, and the silent epidemic that has come with it.

 

Dre and Iovine's headphones are engineered so that you "hear your music the way the artist would play it back" — specifically, the way hip-hop and rap artists, like Dre, would want to play it back
