Kanye West’s private school, which opened in 2021, is home to Adidas-backed Donda Doves basketball team, according to an article published by rolling stone.

Based in Simi Valley, Calif., Christian preparatory school Donda Academy — named after West’s late mother, Professor Donda West — says on its website that its mission is “to prepare students to become the next generation of leaders”.

In the 2018-2019 school year, according to data from the National Federation of State High School Associations, the sport with the most participation for boys in the United States was 11-a-side football with slightly more participation. a million attendees. Basketball was third, with 540,769, just behind athletics in popularity.

According to Donda consultant Tamar Andrews, there are just under 100 students enrolled at the $15,000-a-year school, which employs 16 full-time teachers.

andrews said rolling stone that the school is not yet accredited, although it has applied to the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

The institution’s Donda Doves basketball team was launched in the 2021-2022 school year, according to the California Department of Education.

West, 45, who has legally changed his name to Ye, wants the team to compete against the best players at the prestigious Sierra Canyon school, attended by NBA star LeBron James’ 17-year-old son, Bronny.

West’s children with ex-wife Kim Kardashian also attend Sierra Canyon, but in shared text messages on West’s Instagram account he allegedly sent her, the musician wrote that he wanted their children to attend Donda Academy. .

Given the school founder‘s celebrity status, it’s reported that NBA stars such as Boston Celtics player Jaylen Brown and Utah Jazz Jordan Clarkson will be on hand to help students at Donda Academy. .

According rolling stonesome of the best high school basketball players in the United States have been recruited from Donda Academy, including ESPN’s No. 8 pick Robert Dillingham and No. 25 pick AJ Johnson.

The team appeared on the cover of Slam Magazine in January, posing alongside former presidential candidate West in gray Balenciaga uniforms.

Players hailing from all over the United States, sports students were housed in a luxury building with chaperones, according to the report.

Another draw to the school is the choir, with up to seven children from that program having successfully auditioned to sing as part of West’s invitation-only Sunday services.

Few other details are known about Donda Academy, which reportedly requires parents of prospective students to sign nondisclosure agreements. Consultant Andrews said in the report that the parents were asked to sign an “informal agreement”.

The school’s principal and executive director, Brianne Campbell – who also runs Donda Academy’s choir program – is 28, has never held a formal teaching position and is enrolled in a Masters of Education program at Pepperdine University in California.

West producer and collaborator Malik Yusef, who told rolling stone he helped shape the concept of the school, said the rapper and fashion designer was serious about Donda Academy.

West’s five-year plan, according to Yusef, is to open multiple campuses across the United States, copying Donda Academy’s tuition for K-12 students.

“I want to emphasize that there was never a time when Kanye West didn’t want to do this,” Yusef said. “I think people don’t understand the seriousness of this.

“This man always wanted to start a school in his mum’s name…Look at what we’re doing with the choir and fashion at school – I don’t think there’s a venture capitalist or who anyone who had such a clear vision of what education can look like for you.”

Yusef and Andrews also talked about the programs the school offers, including fashion classes, Japanese language classes, restorative justice education classes, and STEM classes.

“With Donda Academy, the program has been built for a lifetime, Yusef said. “Education is kind of a group effort. It takes a village to raise the child, these conceptualizations.

“We talked at length about how we want people to be educated and how the education system fails the majority of people, not just some.”

Newsweek has contacted representatives of West and Donda Academy for comment.

Don’t Put Her Down – Hazel Dickens movie by Julia Golonka https://tadasei.com/dont-put-her-down-hazel-dickens-movie-by-julia-golonka/ Mon, 12 Sep 2022 22:21:38 +0000 https://tadasei.com/dont-put-her-down-hazel-dickens-movie-by-julia-golonka/

A new film by Julia Golonka about IBMA Hall of Famer Hazel Dickens takes its title from Dickens’ powerful anthem Don’t put her down, you helped put her thereand explores how she, along with her musical partner Alice Gerrard, became the first woman to lead a bluegrass band, and reflects on the role of women in bluegrass today.

The short film – 32 minutes long – covers Hazel’s migration to Baltimore from the coal country of West Virginia, her activism for coal miners and workers, and the impact her upbringing had on her writing. songs. Longtime collaborators and up-and-coming musicians share what it means to have bluegrass songs written from a woman’s perspective and to keep Hazel’s memory alive.

Golonka provides this background information…

“Until I came across the music of Hazel Dickens, I hadn’t realized that until then I was mainly listening to men playing bluegrass. I was listening to a playlist of covers of Long Veil Black, and when the Hazel and Alice version came out, I was absolutely smitten with her voice. I then found the Women bluegrass pioneers album, and that’s when I really dove into his music. I was telling a musician friend about her, and he mentioned that her nephew Buddy lives in Baltimore and is active in the music scene. I met Buddy in early 2017 and pitched my idea for this movie and he was very supportive of me, and I finished the movie in December 2021. Hazel and Alice were inducted into the Bluegrass Hall of Fame at fall of 2017, and that was the first big shoot I did for the movie. I ended up not using any of the footage from the ceremony, but it was still so inspiring to be there and see how many people were touched by Hazel’s music.

After that shoot, I was touring with Hazel’s nephew, Buddy, and some Baltimore-based musicians, and learning more about Hazel, and really starting the movie in 2019. I was accepted as a member of the Saul Zaentz Innovation Fund to Johns Hopkins with this project, and it provided me with storytelling workshops, commentary, a great editing mentor who knew Hazel’s music, and then I also received funding for the film from SZIF. This funding was absolutely essential and made the film possible. While I was working on this film, I ended up having a lot more filming opportunities than I thought! I thought I would mostly be filming interviews and working with archival content, but several things have happened over the past few years – Hazel and Alice being inducted into the Bluegrass Hall of Fame, Hazel’s induction into the Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame, the release of Sing Me Home: The DC Tapes, and the unveiling of the Hazel Dickens Memorial Bridge. The fact that Hazel continues to be honored in the years since her death made me feel like it was a fitting time to make this movie and that Hazel’s fan following just kept growing.

One shoot that stood out was going down to her hometown of Montcalm, West Virginia to film the dedication of the Hazel Dickens Memorial Bridge on her birthday in 2019. Her nephew Buddy took us (myself and a production assistant/camera) at a jam with musicians who had played with Hazel, we heard stories from them, and we visited her grave. The film ends with the bridge dedication ceremony, which seemed like the best way to honor her since so many of her songs are about her home.

The film features interviews with Ginny Hawker, Dudley Connell, Ketch Secor, Karen Collins, Molly Tuttle, Avery Hellman, Tom Gray and Buddy Dickens.

Throughout the film, scenes from Hazel’s life take place on a Crankie, a hand-scrolling panorama with cut-out paper and shadow puppets. As my film is a story about the past turned towards the future, I was attracted by the use of this archaic form of narration and its digital presentation. Baltimore has a very active Crankie scene, and I worked with papercut artist Katherine Fahey to create the Crankies for my film. There’s a long Crankie scene in the movie where Lost Patterns plays in its entirety, and it’s the only full Hazel song we hear. I chose this song because Hazel mentions that she is most proud of her songwriting and this song is the one she is especially proud of.

Carnatic music: the unaltered cultural heritage https://tadasei.com/carnatic-music-the-unaltered-cultural-heritage/ Sun, 11 Sep 2022 04:12:12 +0000 https://tadasei.com/carnatic-music-the-unaltered-cultural-heritage/

We grew up learning that it was revolts, marches and protests that were an integral part of India’s freedom struggle. However, much of the resistance and revolution began with the creative productions of music, dance and painting. Art has been a powerful tool of dissent and revolution. Many musicians, painters and dancers have used their art to vocalize colonial India and its struggles, injustices and despairs.

We bring many of those hidden and unrecognized artists from colonial India and their patriotic art, which spoke loud and clear about patriotic and nationalist feelings, uniting everyone.

Singing the Home Blues: Musicians from Colonial India

In the 19th century, Indians wanted to identify symbols of cultural identity in the face of growing cultural awareness. This is where ‘Hindustani Music’ has ventured. Musician Vishnu Digambar Paluskar in the same way VN Bhatkhande founded the Akhil Bharatiya Gandharva Mahavidyalaya in 1901, which marked a turning point in the modern era of Hindustani classical music. Atul Prasad Sen was a Bengali musician and composer who contributed immensely to the field of Bengali music. He participated in the work of ‘Harijan Uddhav’ promoted by Gandhi. His patriotic plays, “hao dharmete dhir, hao karmete bir” (be a hero of religion, be a hero of action) and “utha go bharat laksmi” (wake up, India), are worth mentioning. Dwijendra Lal Roy, another musician and poet, envisioned a new India strong in values, culture and economy. He wrote songs with the same ideas, which harnessed the patriotic spirit of Bengal. Rajanikanta Sen was another musician who contributed to Bengali music. During the partition of Bengal, when the Bengali rulers boycotted British goods and products and only bought/sold Indian-made clothes, he wrote the following lines: “My brothers, please accept the coarse clothes offered by your mother . Like that’s all your poor mother (nation) can afford. The song became popular throughout the state of Bengal and boosted the Swadeshi movement.

Kavi Pradip is best known for his patriotic song, “Ae Mere Watan Ke Logo”. Another of his most beloved patriotic songs was “Ek Naya Sansar Basalen”, which was also featured in the 1941 film, “Naya Sansar”. The song became the resounding call for an independent India. Dilip Kumar’s moving interpretation of Vande Mataram with Bharat Ratna MS Subbulakshmi in the 1930s captivated the masses and freedom fighters. Some of his other compositions include Bharat Amar Bharat Amar, Amar Moloyo Batashe and Banga Amar Janani Amar which were important inspirational pieces in India’s freedom struggle.

The Canvas and Sculptors of India’s Freedom Struggle

Ramkinkar Baijoften when he returned home, drew paintings of the freedom fighters he saw there. Devi Prasad Roy Choudhary was an Indian sculptor from Bengal, known for his sculptures inspired by the Indian freedom struggle. He froze and immortalized some of the key moments in Indian history. At the Shahid Samarak (Martyrs Memorial) in Patna, one can find Roy Chowdhury’s sculpture of the students who lost their lives during the Indian freedom struggle. The ‘Gyarah Murti’ in Delhi is a tribute to Gandhi and his ideals of non-violence.

Prodoch Das Gupta form the Calcutta Group, which believes in an art that is universal and free from old values. The authenticity of Indian culture and Indian philosophy deeply inspired him, and together with the Calcutta group, he incorporated this very fabric of India into his sculptors and other artistic creations. Gopal Ghose, under the direction of Prodosh Gupta, has also created art, inspired and rooted in Indian aesthetics and philosophy. During the 1940s, the artist transformed his style of art a bit and made sketches of the infamous 1943 man-made famine in Bengal.

Nirode Mazumdar led the modernist art movement in the 1940s. He created a series of paintings inspired by widespread famine, one of which was titled ‘Anath’ (1944), which depicted homeless and starving children. Paritosh Sen found his creative energies inspired by memories of a past world and attempts to understand the present. Besides the paintings, his caricatures reflected strong underlying socio-political nuances. Somnath Hore was a sculptor and engraver, born in 1921. The subject of his art was dominated by the sufferings of man. He covered at length the horrific aftermath of the 1943 famine, World War II and the Japanese bombings of Bengal. Crying mothers, starving children, dead animals, lonely village streets, etc., were brought to light in his socially realistic paintings of pre-partition India. Chittaprosod BhattacharyaHis best work was his visual reporting of the Bengal famine in 1943-1944. He documented the British-imposed famine through sketches, texts, and linocuts. This revolutionary popular art was a means of mobilizing the masses.

Asit Kumar Haldar was the great-nephew of Rabindranath Tagore. He belonged to the first generation of painters and sculptors of the neo-Bengal school of art. He brought the rich cultural heritage of India in his paintings. Haldar painted a whole series of 32 paintings based on the Buddha. A collection of episodes from the history of India on thirty canvases, illustrations of the verses of Omar Khayyam, interpretations of the Mahabharata stories, etc. became a subject of his paintings.

Benode Behari MukherjeeThe popular creation of was the mural titled Medieval Saints, which he painted on the walls of Hindi Bhavana in Shantiniketan on the eve of India’s independence from colonial rule. The mural traced the history of medieval India through the lives of Tulsi Das, Kabir and others, and emphasized their human teachings. NS Bendre covered landscapes and figurative paintings, but also explored myriad ways of combining the cubist, expressionist and abstract genres of Western modernism in his own work stemming from Indian formalism. One of his Quit India movement maidan paintings captured the intensity of India’s struggle for freedom and unity.

Sunayani Devi has been unjustly dismissed from the history of Indian painters. She was the younger sister of Abanindranath Tagore and Gaganendranath Tagore. She was a self-taught artist, often found spying on her brothers and learned by watching them. His art subject surrounded women at their toilette, dolls, players, actors and themes from the mythical Radha-Krishna cycle. She was an important member of the art of the Swadeshi movement which brought to light Indian painting styles such as Mughal miniatures and ancient Jain paintings.

Mukul Dey is the pioneer of drypoint engraving. He traveled West to study printmaking art and techniques. When he returned to India, Dey had a large number of new Western techniques. Armed with this knowledge, Dey modernized Indian art and its rich artistic heritage to benefit the rise of the Swadeshi movement in the country. He devoted his life to the artistic revival of Indian art. Kalipada Goshal was also one of the Swedish painters. He was the last successor of Abanindranath Tagore. As a noted student of the Indian Society of Oriental Art, Kalipada Ghosh produced some of the finest and most intricate paintings of his time. Some of his most important works are Shakuntala, Persian Night, Hara Parvati, Budha and Rahul, Krishna Series, Buddha Series, etc.

The Swadeshi painters rejected Western art forms, and by reviving the mythological and pre-colonial tales of India through art, they aimed to decolonize India from the grip of the British Raj.

Dance the beat for a free India

Dancer Jog SunderThe erased dance productions of him made him very popular. During the pre-independence period, Yog was a regular participant in nationalist movements. He has produced and directed many acclaimed dance productions. Collaborating and associating with other dancers and actresses, he founded the Indian Progressive Ballet Group in Calcutta in 1947. The group impressed everyone with the production of their renowned programs. Prominent among them are Birth of Freedom, Freedom Festival, Mahabharata, Voice from Beyond, Dances of India, Rhythms of India, Kiratarjun, Chandalika, Call of the Country, Rhythms and Melody, Ramlila, The Lore of India, etc.

YG Srimati was not only a dancer, but alongside that, a musician and a painter. She was born in 1926, and from an early age she had begun her classical training in music, dance and painting. After 1847, Srimati was invited to a number of independence rallies where she sang devotional songs. She had also sung bhajans alongside Gandhi at several of his gatherings. She did so in different languages ​​to emphasize the cultural and patriotic unity among the citizens of India, a value that Mahatma Gandhi deeply preached. His paintings are the result of the influence of the passionate struggle for independence. She had explored major themes surrounding Indian religious epic literature and rural culture as a conscious expression of nationalist sentiments. His paintings have also been exhibited at the MET.

Art and its expressions played a huge role in promoting patriotic feelings during India’s freedom struggle. Pre-independent Indian painters, musicians and dancers added more density to the movement and participated equally in the struggle against colonial rule.

Red Celebrates Box Office Success With New Trailer https://tadasei.com/red-celebrates-box-office-success-with-new-trailer/ Tue, 06 Sep 2022 00:06:12 +0000 https://tadasei.com/red-celebrates-box-office-success-with-new-trailer/


One Piece Film: Red is riding a wave of box office success, and the film has received a new trailer to commemorate the occasion.

One Piece Film: Red is riding a wave of box office success, and the film has received a new trailer to commemorate the occasion.

Released via the official One Piece YouTube channel on September 5, the trailer features a synopsis of the film’s story and some key dialogue from its main cast. The latter includes series mainstays like Monkey D. Luffy, the Strawhat Crew, and Red Hair Shanks, as well as original character Uta.

The trailer kicks off by highlighting one of the film’s greatest achievements. Since its release, it has grossed over 10 billion yen at the Japanese box office, making it the first One Piece film to do so as well as the best-selling One Piece film in history. That’s before it even premieres in the West, which should help the film’s global ascent even further.

The trailer then cuts to clips of the characters, starting with Uta’s introduction during a flashback. She says she is the musician of the Red Hair Pirates and she will build a new genesis of freedom for all. Before she can provide an example of her singing skills, the trailer cuts to a scene of Luffy wondering what happened to Uta, only for Shanks to respond that she left to become a musician.

This is followed by another cut, which cuts to a scene of Uta crying in the middle of a burning city and shouting angrily at Shanks.

The trailer then cuts to scenes from the present day, where Uta uses an unknown power to achieve his ambitions. It is then up to the Strawhats and the Red Hair Pirates to stop him, with each side intent on stopping Uta for reasons that are not yet entirely clear. This all happens as Uta’s character-related songs blare and hints of the film’s final conflict unfold.

It’s a good snippet of what the film offers as well as being a nice nod to the film’s success. Fans who haven’t seen the movie yet will want to check it out in full below.

One Piece Film: Red is set to premiere in the West in October. For more on the One Piece series, check out one of the related articles below. We also have many series-related lists, including our ranking of every completed arc in the series and similar series worth watching.

Join the club

We start this Sunday with a bit of context and a sweet request. As Monocle approaches its 16th anniversary since operations began, we now employ over 70 full-time editors and nearly as many in our publishing, retail, coffee and distribution departments. On top of that, our network of correspondents has grown to more than 35 journalists working in cities ranging from Helsinki to Madrid, Seoul to Bangkok. As far as global media companies go, we are quite small but still manage to produce over 20 magazines and newspapers, three books, 1,000 hours of ‘live’ radio, multiple events and hundreds of newsletters each year.

While strong business partnerships (welcome to our new Sunday partner, Bergos!) allow us to cover the world and file articles and reports from a myriad of places, a newsletter like this (and the other seven we’re posting throughout the week) also require a paid audience. Ideally, everyone would pay a small amount each day for our journalism and we would have a tidy little business on our hands. A €1,000 subscription to our newsletters would certainly be a great deal and would allow for more offices in exotic locations. But there’s a cheaper, easier way to make sure we can do what we do and that’s for readers to subscribe to Monocle (in print, digital or both) – and that’s just over a tenth of that price.

As the majority of our newsletter readers are non-subscribers to the magazine, we would be delighted if you could subscribe and take advantage of the discounts, invitations and special previews that come with being part of our global community. As Christmas isn’t that far away, it’s a good time to sign up colleagues, cousins ​​and corporate clients. If you are already a subscriber, I want to say a big thank you on behalf of all of us for your support.

On the topic of community and why it’s good to be a subscriber, here are some upcoming dates for the agenda.

On October 1we will open the doors to our annual herbstmarkt (autumn market) in Zürich. As usual, we’ll have a selection of unique vendors, great wine and beer, and a full on-the-go grill featuring the best around. Würst. Subscribers receive regular special benefits.

Then on October 14 and 15, we will organize a special pop-up restaurant in Zürich – for two nights only. We’ll be working with a guest chef from Tokyo to deliver a tasty mix of Japanese-Italian classics, smart cocktails and after-dinner entertainment in our lounge. We will also announce a date for a similar evening at Midori House in London later this month.

And finally, we’re heading to Dallas for our first-ever US conference in the form of The Chiefs, Monocle’s summit dedicated to leadership, opportunity and entrepreneurship. Following the success of the 2020 edition of St Moritz, we are bringing the format to downtown Dallas and will host speakers and delegates throughout a full day of discussion, debate and great hospitality on November 8 and 9. I’ll be on hand with Editor-in-Chief Andrew Tuck, Editor-in-Chief Josh Fehnert, our man in the US, Chris Lord, and a host of other Monocle editors and presenters. For more information on The Chiefs, check out the lineup here. Speakers will be announced over the next few weeks and you can be sure we’ll bring our unique insight into business and brand building with a global lineup of cutting-edge voices to challenge, inform, entertain and inspire.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events (our Christmas markets in Zürich and London will be announced soon) and, of course, to have you as a paying subscriber.

The best atmosphere on Bandcamp: August 2022

By Ted Davis August 29, 2022

You’d be hard-pressed to find a smaller ambient artist than Brian Eno who’s a household name – the genre is inherently quite niche, saturated with low-key releases from underground communities around the world. But it’s still been a few months since we’ve had a release from a truly great performing artist. This made sorting the records for the column extremely fun as I was pushed to dig even deeper than usual. This month’s roundup features albums from newcomers and unsung heroes. From Precipitation’s sparkling take on soft techno to Tewksbury’s cavernous ode to our rapidly changing climate, here are August’s best instrumental electronic releases.

glass horizon

Thanks to artists like Susumu Yokota, Soichi Terada and Jun Kamoda, Japanese house music has a rich and storied heritage. glass horizon, the first feature film by Tokyo producer Zefan Sramek (aka Precipitation), is one of the best artists on the Tokyo scene. Centered around floaty dance grooves, gorgeous synth tracks and pristine pads, it’s a truly breathtaking record, evoking a pink and orange tinged Balearic sunrise or a drive through a surreal slice of countryside. Inspired and recorded between trips to the beautiful island of Sado, it is shaped by natural sounds that Sramek recorded during his spring and summer trips there. The end result seems as suited to a 75-degree afternoon as it is to the descent after a sleepless night at the club. It’s a real eye-catcher, filled to the brim with heartbreaking melodies and dynamic beats that make it one of the most emotional electronic records of the year so far.

butterfly dna

When it rains, it pours. For most of 2022, West Mineral Ltd. kept a fairly low profile. But in recent weeks, the almost boring and cool imprint of Huerco S. has released two records – the first Pontiac Streator Sone Gloand now Yunzero’s butterfly dna. Like Sone Glo, this new one is surprisingly rhythmic and danceable when analyzed in the context of a label whose fame is all about being a home for a weird, weird vibe. But while the album flaunts a classy edge, it’s still pretty wonky. It was recorded in Naarm, Australia, by merging samples of found sounds with other organic instruments. The end result oscillates between deconstructed club and concrete music. With just one track topping the four-minute mark, it’s a succinct, digestible undertaking, united by an unpredictability that keeps things diverse and exciting.

Jessica Ackerley and Patrick Shiroishi
through the water

There doesn’t seem to be a single vibe that Patrick Shiroishi can’t conjure up with his saxophone. Whether he’s joining The Armed onstage or collaborating on a remote sound project with Claire Rousay, the Los Angeles musician always remains prolific and defies expectations. One of his latest releases (by the time this column is published, chances are he’s released, like, three more records), through the water, is a split with Honolulu, Hawaii-based guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Jessica Ackerley. Although it came to life in two famously sunny locations, the record often plays like a dreamy version of a 90s Chicago band like The Sea And Cake or Tortoise. Through these sprawling cuts – all of which revolve around the 10-minute mark – the duo create shimmering and calm atmospheres. He finds the two avant-garde musicians settling into an unusually restrained, yet alluring style.

ice blink
Cocoon rug

Minneapolis, Minnesota musician Lynn Avery’s side project might be called Iceblink, but don’t get it twisted: the music from her new album Cocoon rug is warmer than this winter moniker suggests. Combining organic tones with nostalgic melodies, the record sonically resembles the work of mid-century Brazilian artists like Luiz Bonfá and Antonio Carlos Jobim. Drawing from his love of mixtapes, weird ephemera, and searching the internet for crate, the record is heartwarming and familiar. With Cole Pulice’s saxophone; flute and sax-flute by Mitch Stahlmann; and the whistles of Paya Bird, it’s a moving and poetic exploration of the more earthy and free side of New Age music.

sea ​​eyes

In many places it is a brutally hot summer. As temperatures climb to dangerously high levels, it can be tempting to turn to darker ambient textures to simulate shade and coolness. Chamomile— the new album from Los Angeles producer Cynthia Bernard, aka marine eyes — is the rare, sunny electronic record that absolutely hits the spot on a steamy afternoon. Focused on the usual ambient instrumental fare (like field recordings and a Teenage Engineering OP-1), she also incorporated bass and guitar into her songwriting process. The completed project mixes bloated synthscapes with more traditional vocal and string flourishes reminiscent of Liz Harris/Grouper, if her work wasn’t so deeply affected by the foggy gloom of the Oregon coast. Expansive and emotional, these 10 pieces of gauze are just waiting to mark a lonely picnic in a patch of fantasy meadow.


If you’re anything like me, the more ambient music you listen to, the less you lean towards the long drones the genre is often remembered for – if I’m going to listen to a 20-minute track that’s all synths and tape loops, it better be pretty particularly good. And the new record of upstate New York professor and researcher Douglas Tewksbury raw is just that. Consisting of just two expansive tracks, these loops were recorded onto gargantuan 60-foot reels of analog tape, then played through eight guitar amps at once. It’s about 40 minutes in total, and while it all might sound a little pretentious on paper, this version is actually extremely listenable. Both works were inspired by a quest for hidden beauty amid the destruction of our natural world, which Tewksbury encountered firsthand during his college trips to places like Norway, Newfoundland and Alaska. These tracks are both painful, devastating and dynamic. In general, raw recalls that of William Basinski Decay loopsif these nine timeless compositions were marked by downtrodden optimism instead of outright tragedy.

Arthur King
Changing Landscapes (Mina Las Pintadas)

To call the Los Angeles AKP Recordings imprint an ambient label would be doing it a disservice. Founded in 2020 by multidisciplinary artist Peter Walker, the Dangerbird Records subsidiary has certainly dropped celestial works, from musicians like Space Between Clouds, Suzanne Ciani and Alister Fawnwoda. But they’ve also released a number of decidedly unmellow records from artists such as A Grape Dope (Tortoise’s John McEntire), East Portal and DunkelpeK. AKP’s latest is by seasoned creator Arthur King, and it seems to sit right in the middle of the label’s release spectrum. Changing Landscapes (Mina Las Pintadas) finds him using a Chilean copper mine to generate stimulating soundscapes. Pulsating, dynamic and at times a little uncomfortable, there is an intensity to the six tracks on this disc that clearly reflects the rocky subterranean landscape that has shaped its arrangements. Mina Las Pintadas is the fourth episode of King’s Adventurous Changing landscapes series, and while it’s really pretty, it ultimately remains organic and familiar. If DARKSIDE played with an avant-garde symphony orchestra, it might sound something like this.

I survived, it’s over

Cosmic Americana is one of the most exciting trends to emerge in the last few years, but at some point you start to know what you’re going to get. There are only so many ways to put a fresh spin on slide guitars, synthesizer flourishes and Townes Van Zandt grit. I survived, it’s over, the new album from Nashville composer and former Kansas Bible Company member Rich Ruth, pushes the boundaries of the genre’s formula. Incorporating saxophones, flute and a few other non-traditional instruments into the arrangements, he skillfully blends a host of seemingly disparate moods. Touching on jazz, electronic music and, of course, voiceless country, it plays like a lost experimental album from the Woodstock generation. I survived, it’s over was mixed by Tortoise drummer John McEntire, and his guidance behind the board makes him feel a bit like a dustier companion for Roped upthe stellar 2020 album from label mate Third Man North Americans.

Omni Gardens
New Directions in Meditation Tones

Omni Gardens is a project by Steve Rosborough, emblematic figure of the ambient community who owns the Moon Glyph label. Since 2012, the Portland, Oregon artist has released a number of captivating releases, going so far as to land a coveted collaboration with the eclectic and beloved service Longform Editions. His new album, New Directions in Meditation Tones, was recorded with Zen monk Jogen Salzberg, who provides oral contributions to Rosborough’s soothing auditory moods. It’s sweet, psychedelic and sometimes a bit cartoonish. These two 20-minute tracks showcase Rosborough’s talent for warm, esoteric electronic music at its finest.

Shiken Hanzo
The eternity of echoes

On his new album for Anthony Naples’ Incienso label, Shiken Hanzo tests the limits of aerial electronics. With beats approaching Tzu’s intensity levels, these four tracks stray from the British producer’s usual drum and bass sound, producing a gripping hellish sound in the lap. Through the eternity of echoes, the dubbed noise floats over kicks and bass lines that feel fit for a hyped, yet nerve-wracking club night. While this one definitely exists on the fringes of ambient, it offers a taste of the rawer side of what emerges from the scene.

The Sony Walkman and virtual reality headsets aren’t just great examples of personal technology. In the hands of Paul Roquet, they are also vehicles for learning more about Japan, the United States, global technological trends – and ourselves.

Roquet is an associate professor in MIT’s program in Comparative Media/Writing Studies, and his forte is analyzing how new consumer technologies are changing the way people interact with their environment. In this effort, he focused on Japan, an early adopter of many post-war trends in personal technology.

For example, in his 2016 book “Ambient Media: Japanese Atmospheres of Self” (University of Minnesota Press), Roquet examines how music, film, and other media have been deployed in Japan to create soothing and relaxing individual atmospheres. for the people. It gives people a sense of control, even though their moods are now influenced by the products they consume.

In his 2022 book, “The Immersive Enclosure: Virtual Reality in Japan” (Columbia University Press), Roquet explored the impact of VR technologies on users, understanding these devices as tools both to close off the outside world and interact with others in networked environments. . Roquet also detailed the cross-cultural trajectories of virtual reality, which in the United States emerged from military and aeronautical applications, but in Japan they have been centered on forms of escapist entertainment.

As Roquet puts it, his work is constantly focused on “the relationship between media technologies and the perception of the environment, and how this relationship plays out differently in different cultural contexts”.

He adds: “There is a lot to be gained by trying to think about the same issues in different parts of the world.

These different cultures are linked, of course: in Japan, for example, the English musician Brian Eno had a significant influence in the understanding of ambient media. The translation of VR technologies from the United States to Japan has happened, in part, through technologists and innovators with ties to MIT. Meanwhile, Japan gave the world the Sony Walkman, its own sound box.

As such, Roquet’s work is innovative, bringing together cultural trends across different media and tracing them around the world, through the history, present and future of technology. For his research and teaching, Roquet was granted tenure at MIT earlier this year.

Paid exchange program

Roquet grew up in California, where his family moved to several different cities during his childhood. As a high school student learning Japanese in Davis, he enrolled in an exchange program with Japan, the California-Japan Scholars program, which allowed him to see the country up close. It was Roquet’s first time outside the United States and the trip had a lasting impact.

Roquet continued to study Japanese language and culture during his undergraduate studies at Pomona College; he obtained his BA in 2003, in Asian Studies and Media Studies. Roquet also indulged his growing fascination with atmospheric media by hosting a college radio show featuring often experimental forms of ambient music. Soon, Roquet discovered, much to his perplexity, that his show was being played – with unknown effects on customers – at a local car dealership.

Japanese cinema was yet another source of emerging intellectual interests for Roquet, due to the differences he perceived with mainstream American cinema.

“The storytelling often worked very differently, says Roquet. “I found myself drawn to films where the emphasis was less on plot and more on atmosphere and space.”

After college, Roquet won a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship and immediately spent a year on an ambitious research project, investigating what the local soundscape meant to residents of the Asia-Pacific region – including Malaysia. , Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, the Cook Islands — as well as Canada.

“It made me realize how people’s relationship to the soundscape can be different from place to place, and how history, politics and culture shape the sensory environment,” says Pug.

He went on to earn his master’s degree in 2007 from the University of California, Berkeley, and finally his doctorate from Berkeley in 2012, with a focus on Japanese studies and a designated focus on film studies. His thesis formed the basis of his book “Ambient Media”.

After three years as an Andrew W. Mellon postdoctoral fellow in the humanities at Stanford University and one as a postdoctoral fellow in global media at Brown University, Roquet joined the faculty at MIT in 2016. He remained at the Institute since, producing his second book, as well as a series of essays on virtual reality and other forms of environmental media.

Willingness to explore

MIT was an excellent choice, Roquet says, given his varied interests in the relationship between technology and culture.

“One thing I like about MIT is that there’s a real willingness to explore new ideas and emerging practices, even if they don’t yet fit into an established disciplinary context,” Roquet says. “MIT allows this cross-disciplinary conversation to happen because you have this place that connects everything.”

Roquet has also taught a wide range of undergraduate courses, including introductions to media studies and Japanese culture; a course on Japanese and Korean cinema; another on Japanese literature and cinema; and a digital media course in Japan and Korea. This semester, he is teaching a new course on Critical Approaches to Immersive Media Studies.

Of MIT undergraduates, Roquet notes, “They have a remarkable range of interests, which means the classroom discussions change from year to year in really interesting ways.

No matter what arouses their curiosity, they are always ready to dig deep.

Regarding his current research, Roquet explores how the increasing use of immersive media works to transform a society’s relationship with the existing physical landscape.

“These kinds of questions are not asked enough,” says Roquet. “There is a lot of emphasis on what virtual spaces offer the consumer, but there are always environmental and social impacts created by inserting new layers of mediation between a person and the world around them. Not to mention the manufacture of helmets that often become obsolete in a few years. »

Wherever his work takes him, Roquet will always engage in a career-long project of exploring the cultural and historical differences between countries in order to broaden our understanding of media and technology.

“I don’t want to argue that Japan is radically different from the United States. These stories are very intertwined and there’s a lot of back and forth. [between the countries], said Pug. “But also, when you pay close attention to local contexts, you can uncover critical differences in how media technologies are understood and used. These can teach us a lot and challenge our assumptions.

Kendall JennerThe evening wear game shows no signs of stopping – and her latest look, worn at an event to celebrate the recent launch of a Kylie Cosmetics product, is photographic proof of that.

Last week we were admiring him stunning vintage Jean Paul Gaultier knit dress she wore to celebrate her 818 Tequila liquor brand, and now Kendall has created another vintage designer look we just can’t get enough of.

On Wednesday evening, the 26-year-old stepped out in a printed silk dress that was originally worn on the runway in the early 2000s by supermodel Gisele Bündchen.

The on-trend dress, which first graced the runway for Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2001 collection, featured an unusual pattern that gave the ensemble a futuristic feel despite being a statement piece. archives.

Kendall’s fitted sleeveless dress was printed with an hourglass-shaped robot girl, inspired by the works of famous Japanese illustrator Hajime Sorayamao. The piece featured leopard print accents around the sweetheart neckline, which contrasted with the vibrant hues of purple, teal and turquoise that made up the main body of the dress. The bodycon silhouette was super flattering and allowed the model to show off her radiant complexion thanks to its above-the-knee length and unique triangle cutout in the back.

Kendall isn’t the only Kardashian-Jenner sister to adore the historic Italian luxury brand. Her older sister Kourtney, who married musician Travis Barker earlier this year in Portofino, Italy, turned to Dolce & Gabbana for her wedding look.

Bravo: Meet Joe Gilman – Sacramento Magazine https://tadasei.com/bravo-meet-joe-gilman-sacramento-magazine/ Tue, 23 Aug 2022 18:05:04 +0000 https://tadasei.com/bravo-meet-joe-gilman-sacramento-magazine/

Gorgeous singer Tracy Walton smiles knowingly as Joe Gilman warms up on his piano keyboard. This will be the first of many looks as Walton and Gilman make their way through vintage classics and select pop gems from The Great American Songbook. The couple are huddled against the back wall of Gilman’s 6-month-old restaurant, Twin Lotus Thai on Folsom Boulevard. They’ll play Duke Ellington’s “Don’t Get Around Much Any More” and the familiar “Sentimental Journey,” but they’ll also include Jerry Garcia’s “Sugar Baby” and Bobbie Gentry’s “Ode to Billie Joe.” Walton, widely known as the lead singer of popular band Mumbo Gumbo, delves into the more creative ways of Americana. Although Gilman is primarily a jazz player, he has no trouble finding common ground with her.

There’s a bit of Superman in Joe Gilman. He doesn’t put on a cape when he sits at the keyboard, but he becomes otherworldly. His fingers wave effortlessly up and down the keys, and the notes cascade through the sound system in a musical fountain. There is an effortless fluidity to her performance. Steeped in both jazz history and his own wealth of experience, Gilman can play it all.

For this first-call jazz pianist in the area, there are more gigs lined up than Gilman has time to play. There’s his classes at American River College, where he’s a full-time professor and head of the music theory and jazz skills programs. There are private students to teach. And now, Gilman and his wife Surinipha (Kai) own and operate Twin Lotus Thai, where he regularly backs a diverse cast of local singers when he’s not seating customers or serving tables. Gilman has played music to adoring crowds around the world with some of the greatest musicians to ever play instruments, and he still will, but right now he’s going to pack your half-eaten chicken satay to take away. Gilman, who has the subtle, ironic sense of humor of a seasoned musician, will tell you, “Life is funny like that.

Gilman has played the piano professionally in gigs that include a European tour as featured sideman in legendary vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson’s band and as keyboardist for Sacramento R&B hitmakers Club Nouveau on a Japanese tour. He was an ambassador for the Kennedy Center Jazz in Africa with guitarist Steve Homan. And he played in the groups of Henry Mancini, Joan Rivers, Peter Noone and Wayman Tisdale. Bands he was with opened for Wayne Shorter, Charlie Pride, Everything But The Girl and Mel Tormé. Still, you can find him here in the College Greens mall amid potty stickers and spring rolls playing a show tune for a recent Sacramento State grad he gave a seat to.

Gilman thought that after graduating from Indiana University in music, he would find a job teaching music somewhere. His school buddies (now major jazz artists like bassist Robert Leslie Hurst and trumpeter Chris Botti) mostly planned to move to New York when they were done, and many were already playing with professionals on their breaks.

“They were kids, but they were going back to their hometowns of Detroit, Philadelphia, and they were playing with famous people. I didn’t even know it was possible, says Gilman. “I’m from Carmichael, for screaming out loud. I never thought I would ever have the opportunity to do this. But if his friends played with big pros and he played with his friends, maybe he could play with the pros too, he thought. Maybe moving to New York wasn’t out of the question after all. He would first obtain a master’s degree; then he would also go to New York.

During a summer back home in Sacramento, he met guitarist Henry Robinett, who had a band and a recording contract but needed a piano player. Robinett convinced Gilman to stay. “I thought it would be a good thing to try, so I joined Henry’s band, and pretty soon Artful Balance Records gave me my own record deal,” says Gilman.

Being able to make his own records was a prize, but the fit wasn’t perfect for Gilman. “I was a die-hard jazz musician and I got signed to this label which was more of this new-age stuff,” Gilman says. He could find work playing the occasional piano gig, but that barely sustained him, going to New York no longer seemed like a viable option, and he couldn’t get any of the steady college teaching jobs he seemed suitable for. . Then the label went bankrupt and Gilman felt like he was stuck, maybe he needed to completely change course.

“Everything was kind of like, what am I going to do next?” he says. He applied to law school and was accepted to Hastings at UC Berkeley.

Before moving, he performed a noon concert at American River College. After performing, he was approached to apply for a new position as a music theory instructor who would teach jazz-related classes. The job he hadn’t been able to get was calling to him now. “I rescinded my acceptance to law school and decided to teach at a community college,” says Gilman. “It was really, I would say, the beginning of my adulthood.”

Teaching at the ARC allowed Gilman the economic freedom to artistically pursue whatever he wanted.

He has made outstanding albums of his original music, “Americanvas” and “Relativity”, he has made records of music written by Stevie Wonder and Dave Brubeck, and he has been the sideman on dozens of other recordings. He co-founded the Capital Jazz Project, a regional group of like-minded musicians who performed themed concerts based on the music of jazz masters. He also began teaching at the University of the Pacific’s Brubeck Institute, becoming its de facto music director for over a decade while sending dozens of young, well-trained professional musicians out into the world. The Institute’s namesake, Dave Brubeck, became an admirer and friend of Gilman, sending planners from Gilman Moleskine for Christmas presents. When jazz legend Bobby Hutcherson came along, Gilman was able to play regularly with one of the all-time greats until his death.

Gilman got married in the 90s, but by the time of the 2000s he was divorced and single. Yet he wanted to get married. He just didn’t know how to get there. “I tried to find a partner through the normal channels and it didn’t particularly work — I don’t even know if a normal channel exists anymore,” Gilman says.

He began searching online dating sites, eventually finding women he was interested in on an international site based in Thailand. Women also lived there. A correspondence was initiated. Her adviser, Brian, who ran the site and was also consulted on legal immigration, told Gilman the next step was to come to Thailand and meet the women.

Although Gilman found Kai online, only one of them was actively looking to meet someone. Kai’s sister Tutka, who worked for the site, uploaded Kai’s photo there without his knowledge, then responded to Gilman’s emails when they started arriving. It wasn’t until Gilman came to Thailand to meet her on her spring break that Tutka told Kai what was happening.

It’s not that Kai didn’t want to meet someone – she did. But she also thought that her time might be over. She had lost her cosmetics business and shoe store in the devastating Phuket tsunami in 2004. Struggling to rebuild her life afterwards, Kai even asked a monk what she should do. “The monk told me to be patient and someone would come into my life,” Kai says.

Joe and Kai Gilman

She and Gilman first met on his 30th birthday in 2005 at the website’s office for a 30-minute interview. It was standard procedure. Tutka acted as an interpreter since neither Gilman nor Kai spoke each other’s language. They kinda do it now, even though his English is better than his Thai.

They had a few dates over the next few days, but Gilman’s time was short. “I was about to return to the States, and knowing that I had met this woman that I loved very much, I asked Brian: ‘What am I supposed to do now?’ Brian said, “Well, you should get engaged.”

“I was like, ‘That’s the craziest thing I’ve ever heard. What do you mean? I just met her four days ago! He’s like, ‘Yeah, but you’re gonna have to get a fiancee visa to bring her to the United States. This process takes a long time.” Brian told him to start the process then and get to know her later. Something Joe Gilman is particularly gifted is improvisation: playing changes, adapting and creating in response to shifting melodic chords. They applied for the fiancée visa before Gilman left. “We met on a Monday; we got engaged on a Friday,” says Gilman. Then he returned to Thailand several times over the next few months when flights were cheap.

He thought he would start a courtship to get to know Kai. She had another idea. When Gilman arrived a few months later for the third time, Kai told him, “If you’re serious with me, then we’re getting married. If you’re not interested in marrying me, then don’t come back.

“I said, ‘OK, well, let’s get married then.’ We ended up getting married in Thailand in July. We had been together for about three months, I guess,” Gilman says.

The plan was for the restaurant to be a family business, with his son Andrew running the front of house based on his previous restaurant experience, Kai running the kitchen and his daughter Laila filling in as needed. Gilman would handle most of the business. Andrew had the front of the house fitted and installed, but after a few months he wanted to move on.

With few local venues offering live music, Gilman is now considering setting up outside on the patio with slightly larger combos. It’s basically a musical institution in Sacramento at this point. He had to add an extra matinee to his sold-out birthday jam at the end of June. He still plays heavily, having completed a three-night sprint through Bay Area venues in a band formed by saxophonist Jacam Manricks. “It just so happens that in my case, what I do for a living is music and my hobby is also music,” says Gilman.
