Why Lady Gaga Isn’t In Brad Pitt’s Bullet Train Movie https://tadasei.com/why-lady-gaga-isnt-in-brad-pitts-bullet-train-movie/ Fri, 13 May 2022 23:49:00 +0000 https://tadasei.com/why-lady-gaga-isnt-in-brad-pitts-bullet-train-movie/

Lady Gaga nearly starred in Brad Pitt’s upcoming action thriller Bullet Train, and the film’s director now explains why it didn’t work out.

David Leitch, director of the upcoming action thriller High-speed train, explained why Lady Gaga is not in the film. The pop star-turned-actress won immediate acclaim for her role as Ally, a struggling musician who succeeds in Bradley Cooper’s 2018 remake A star is born. The film landed Gaga her first Oscar and her performance launched a promising acting career that recently saw her star in Ridley Scott. Gucci House.

In recent years, it’s often seemed like Gaga was slowly but surely becoming loyal to the idea of ​​acting rather than making music. Some would argue that the acting aspect of her career is just another talented side to her multi-faceted personality, but anyone who’s seen the 2020 documentary Lady Gaga: Again was confronted by a pop superstar who was in constant pain after years of dancing, singing and touring. Performing may not always be easy work, but compared to the demands placed on a world-class musician, it can often be much less hectic. And even though Gaga has only appeared in one movie since 2018, that doesn’t mean she’s not in high demand.

In fact, Lady Gaga would have followed the years 2021 Gucci House with the next High-speed train if there hadn’t been a case of bad timing. By speaking with EOLeitch explained that Gaga was once in early talks to star in the film, but things came to an abrupt end when the filming schedule for Gucci House has been revealed. Some assume Gaga’s role was filled by Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock – a rumor Leitch doesn’t want to verify. But as to how close the world was to seeing Gaga in her first action thriller, Leitch had this to say:


“It all really came down to his schedule with the Ridley [Scott] film. There were short discussions and then it’s not going to work because she was preparing for the Ridley movie [House of] Gucci. They shot right in front of us and overlapped with us and it really didn’t work.”

High-speed train is produced by Brad Pitt, who also stars in the film as a reluctant assassin known as Ladybug. While taking on what seems like a relatively easy task to locate a briefcase on a Japanese bullet train, Ladybug learns that four other assassins are also tasked with the same mission – some of which will have disastrous consequences. The movie already has a strong momentum behind it, but that being said, Gucci House was not only widely anticipated, but many were also predicting Gaga’s second Oscar of her career. Unfortunately, the film failed to live up to box office expectations, with more than a few critics and even celebrities laughing outright. Gucci House.


For Lady Gaga fans, the idea of ​​seeing her in an action movie might seem like a new and exciting side to the famous popstar. There’s no doubt that any film starring Brad Pitt and Lady Gaga would have a considerable chance of being a hit – especially one in which the two were potentially fighting for their screen lives. It looks like Gaga made the wrong choice about which movie would be the best fit for her career. Nevertheless, Gaga Gucci House the performance was by no means bad, and the timing was the cause of many moments that could have been in the film industry. Gaga’s action-thriller opportunity may not have arrived with High-speed trainbut her future as an actress still looks promising.

How to turn a harsh urban space into a languid jungle https://tadasei.com/how-to-turn-a-harsh-urban-space-into-a-languid-jungle/ Thu, 12 May 2022 19:00:00 +0000 https://tadasei.com/how-to-turn-a-harsh-urban-space-into-a-languid-jungle/

But it’s not a hodgepodge. The beauty of this courtyard comes from the thoughtful way in which everything is laid out. Plants are grouped in eclectic leafy layers to highlight changes in texture, shape and color. They hang from the ceiling and encroach on the floor. They’re staggered at every level thanks to the platforms McLean built from recycled roof trusses, Besser blocks and whatever else was handy.

While Marcou, McLean and a rotating crew of visiting musicians, sound engineers and technicians have all helped tend the plants over the years, visual artists have also been employed at various times to provide care. more consistent.

But two months ago, Marcou and McLean hired their first full-fledged horticulturist. Jo Franklin, who works in the yard about five hours a week, is also a musician who has rehearsed at these studios since their early days and has similar ideas to Marcou and McLean about how the garden should feel.

“We don’t want it to feel like corporate technology,” says Marcou.

McLean says they wanted to create the vibe of a jungle “so that after being in a studio rehearsing for six hours, you come back to nature”.

“We also want to enjoy going to work. People say, ‘why do you spend so much time on a building that you don’t own?’ But more than 20 years later, if we hadn’t invested in it, we wouldn’t have found all this passion.

Plants are staggered at all levels

Franklin, who runs her own horticultural business, says as soon as Marcou and McLean approached her to take over the yard, she was up for it.

“I’ve always loved this place, Franklin says. “I’ve seen the garden take shape and I’ve also seen how everyone reacts to it.”

Increasingly, musicians are using plants as backdrops for band photos, film clips and social media posts.

Franklin started by filling the potting mix into each container and adding a slow-release organic fertilizer. She moved some of the plants around to make sure they get adequate sunlight – while most of the yard gets good light, some areas get even more shade than others – and she tweaked the sun regimes. watering.

Too much water can be just as damaging as too little, and not all plants in this garden have the same water needs. Franklin adjusts watering not only based on the plant but also its location because anything in a hanging basket dries faster than if it were in a large pot on the ground. She says plants growing on an upstairs walkway also need extra irrigation due to their exposure to wind.

Finally, Franklin pruned and modified, including cutting some plants, Attenuated Agave, for example, that she thought had been overused. While she opened up some spaces, she added new layers in others, such as tying tillandsias (taken from her own garden) to strelizia stems.

But the most alluring thing about this space is that you don’t immediately feel the work involved. Everything there is almost incidentally wonderful and isn’t that what we all expect from our gardens?

This Rare Golden Period Stradivarius Could Bring Up To $20 Million At Auction – Robb Report https://tadasei.com/this-rare-golden-period-stradivarius-could-bring-up-to-20-million-at-auction-robb-report/ Tue, 10 May 2022 21:02:57 +0000 https://tadasei.com/this-rare-golden-period-stradivarius-could-bring-up-to-20-million-at-auction-robb-report/

If you’re a fan of classical instruments, you might like it: a 1714 Stradivarius, dubbed the “da Vinci, ex-Seidel” Strad, will be auctioned next month.

The violin is part of the “golden period” of Antonio Stradivari’s production, which spans from 1710 to 1720. For nearly four decades in the 20th century, it was owned by Russian musician Toscha Seidel, who used it during his long career in Hollywood.

“It is our immense pleasure to present this instrument, whose exquisite voice still speaks to us through many classic recordings and film scores performed by the incomparable Toscha Seidel, said Carlos Tome, director of the auction house. online Tarisio, in a statement. “We can only imagine the thrill this instrument has generated for countless musicians and audiences over the centuries.”

The one-piece maple back of the “da Vinci, ex-Seidel” Stradivarius

Tarisio

According to Tarisio, the “da Vinci, ex-Seidel” violin is slightly more refined than other instruments of the same era. Its edges and threads are narrower and its angles less blunt. Additionally, it features a beautiful one-piece maple back, although Stradivari was known to have made more two-piece backs in the 1710s.

Seidel bought this specific violin in the 1920s for $25,000, which would be over $400,000 today. The sale made headlines, with Seidel recounting The New York Times, “We suit each other perfectly, and I am convinced that this is one of the finest examples of the famous luthier.” The violinist will then play Strad during innumerable performances, in particular in the film music of The Wizard of Oz and Intermezzo.

The violin was last sold at auction in 1974, when it fetched over $3 million in today’s dollars. It is currently owned by Tokuji Munetsugu, a Japanese businessman who collects rare stringed instruments.

Although no price has been publicly announced for the violin, Tome told the Time that he expects it to be between $15 and $20 million. If it falls somewhere between those numbers, it could break the current auction record for a Stradivarius, which belongs to “Lady Blunt,” a violin that sold for $15.9 million in 2011.

Unlike this instrument, which was almost never played, the “da Vinci, ex-Seidel” helped create the sound of Hollywood. This backstage movie star is sure to be an auction star too.

Monday Mix: Saya Grey, Built to Spill, Naima Bock https://tadasei.com/monday-mix-saya-grey-built-to-spill-naima-bock/ Mon, 09 May 2022 12:17:46 +0000 https://tadasei.com/monday-mix-saya-grey-built-to-spill-naima-bock/

This single from Canadian-Japanese musician Saya Gray is the first of two tracks to be released from her highly anticipated debut album ’19 MASTERS’. He delightfully sets the table with dazzling production and smooth vocals. “The song was an inner dialogue of my mental state at the time, pushing me into a box of who I felt I needed to be in order to thrive,” Gray said.


“Gonna Lose” comes from Built to Spill’s first new album in seven years. “When the Wind Forgets Your Name” is due out September 9 via iconic Seattle label, Sub Pop. The veteran rock band from the North West seems more relevant than ever here, propelled by a wall of fuzzy guitar reverb. The album was produced by founding member Doug Martsch and mixed with artist duo Lê Almeida João Casaes and Josh Lewis, with whom the band collaborated on a Brazilian tour.


Former Goat Girl member Naima Bock has recently become a compelling solo artist. His debut album “Giant Palm” is released on July 1. The title track of the disc relies on the sonic synergy between Bock’s voice and the instrumentation provided by producer Joel Burton. “We named the album after this song because it was the one that most reflected our collaboration as musicians and the innocence and freedom that characterized the making of the record,” Bock explained.

Nilüfer Yanya’s ‘PAINLESS’ Marks Impressive Milestone in Female-Led Rock Music Revival https://tadasei.com/nilufer-yanyas-painless-marks-impressive-milestone-in-female-led-rock-music-revival/ Sat, 07 May 2022 19:23:33 +0000 https://tadasei.com/nilufer-yanyas-painless-marks-impressive-milestone-in-female-led-rock-music-revival/

The first thing you notice in Nilüfer Yanya’s music is his voice. It’s smoky yet ethereal, jumping seamlessly between its low register and delicate falsetto voice. It’s inviting, but contains a hint of menace, like gentle ocean surf hiding jagged rocks below.

On her recent album, “PAINLESS”, Yanya’s vocals are often doubled, creating an even richer, more textured sound that has drawn comparisons to the great Sade Adu.

But the 26-year-old from London, England, doesn’t see herself primarily as a singer.

“It’s weird, because when I started writing my music, my voice sounded more like an afterthought,” Yanya told The Star in a video call last month. “But on this record…I was really focusing on the vocals and their sound. I guess I thought more like a singer.

Released in March to near-universal acclaim, “PAINLESS” is a masterful, sophisticated rock record, one that makes heavy reference to the ’90s alternative but feels firmly grounded in the present. Largely co-written with English producer and multi-instrumentalist Will Archer, it marks a significant departure from Yanya’s 2019 debut album, “Miss Universe,” a hard-hitting and sometimes rowdy collection of fuzzy garage-rock.

“It’s kind of a different identity, a different sound, and the writing style is different,” she explains. “I wanted to make a new album, but I felt like I had nothing to work with. When I started working with Will, everything fell into place so easily. I didn’t question everything I did. It made sense.

Until recently, rock music was mostly like a boys club, and in many ways it still is. Perhaps because of her name, or her gender, or her soulful voice, Yanya’s music is often misinterpreted – Pitchfork classified her record as R&B” while The Guardian called it “indie pop”.

But Yanya is just one of many girl rock bands – Snail Mail, Wet Leg, Soccer Mommy, Japanese Breakfast, Sharon Van Etten, HAIM, to name a very small sample – who have become the door – torch of the genre.

“I really think there has been a change,” says Yanya. “But I feel like women have always made rock music, it’s just that people never made room or wanted to listen to it before. Like, I don’t think that there’s never really been a shortage of girl rock bands or amazing rock musicians. It’s just that now people are like, ‘Oh, that’s cool, and the doors are open. There’s a very good scene right now.

Raised by two visual artists in Chelsea, Yanya grew up surrounded by Turkish and classical music, but as a teenager she was drawn to “any music with a guitar”. While scrolling through YouTube, she ended up getting into ’90s rock bands like the Pixies (she has a great cover of “Hey”).

After releasing her own music on SoundCloud as a teenager, Yanya turned down an offer to join a girl group conceived by One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson, choosing to hone her skills as a musician and songwriter while maintaining the purity of her voice. indie rock credibility.

On “PAINLESS,” his prowess as a guitarist gives the music a sense of arrogance that counteracts the album’s darker lyrical themes.

“(The album) is about feeling stuck and not being able to escape. Like you’re not moving forward,” Yanya says. “There’s despair attached to it, like you’re not doing anything good.”

Written and released during the pandemic, the album taps into the loneliness and anxiety of existing in a time that feels cut off from the future, and explores the challenge of recognizing and sorting out one’s own emotions.

“There’s nothing out there/For you and me/I’m not going anywhere/Till it bleeds,” she sings on “steady,” her voice cold but pained in the middle of a whirlwind of frantic drums.

“What troubles me now if I rip it straight / Some people won’t have a clue,” she sings on the devastating track “trouble,” her voice charged with restrained emotion.

“‘Painless’ is not allowing yourself to feel something, or not admitting that you feel something, or just numbing your emotions,” she says. “I hadn’t planned on doing something like this when I started writing, but it all came out pretty easily. So it’s quite cathartic.

The key moment in the album’s catharsis occurs in the middle of fan-favorite “Midnight Sun,” which seethes with unease before exploding into a crush of distorted guitars.

“It’s a song about acknowledging what it feels like to be pushed down but want to resist,” she told Stereogum. “If I could choose what people saw and heard, it would be to see the beauty of confrontation and the necessity of rebellion.”

Yanya says she is looking forward to heading to Canada for a series of shows in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver this month. She spoke to the Austin, Texas star just days after performing two weekends at Coachella.

“The first weekend was a little chaotic – we had literally just flown the day before,” she says. “The second weekend was much better, however. It’s been so long, and it was nice to play these songs live. That’s music, really.

Although she may not yet be famous, her music is finally getting the recognition it deserves.

“I was in this record store recently and I was so happy because they had my vinyl under the ‘rock’ section,” she recalls with a smile. “I was like ‘Yeahhh! They know what it is.
