IIt’s a Tuesday evening in the small country town of Milton on the New South Wales south coast, and the smell of freshly made chai and homemade soup about to be served wafts through the drafts from the room of the Country Women’s Association as the discussion veers between death, murder, war, abortion, prison and suffering.

About 50 people, some longtime members of the local Buddhist group, other curious newcomers, sit cross-legged on the wooden floor or in plastic chairs, a portrait of a young Queen Elizabeth II looking down, listening a Buddhist nun. The topic of the evening: “How to stay positive in a negative environment.”

“Our problem is that we think the outside world is the main cause of our suffering – and our happiness, says Venerable Robina Courtin, a 77-year-old Australian ordained in the Gelugpa Tibetan Buddhist tradition in the late 1970s. .

“We understand that when it comes to becoming a musician, you program yourself and that you you are the main cause of becoming a musician – the work is in your mind, you need precision and clarity and perfect theories, then you practice and practice. We know we are creating ourselves in that sense,” she says.

“But when it comes to becoming a happy person, we don’t believe we have that ability. But the Buddhist approach is that we perform, whether it’s a musician or a happy person. We’re the boss.

But what about all the extra suffering in recent years, asks one woman, citing Covid, floods and the war in Ukraine. Courtin relates the story of two imprisoned Tibetan women who were tortured and sexually assaulted, but who were able to “interpret this experience” in a way that “enabled them to bear it”.

The questioning woman seems dissatisfied. “What is that?” Courtin asks. “Come on, say it, it’s important. Courtin can be both warm and direct. When someone interrupted her mid-sentence at the previous day’s event, she replied, “You don’t hear me trying to answer your question!” — and it takes the woman a moment to reveal what she’s thinking. “It just doesn’t seem practical,” she finally said.

“It’s handy when you’re sexually abused in prison,” Courtin says. “We have the power to change the way we interpret our lives, and they were able to do that. And they were even able to have compassion for their torturers. The result of this? They haven’t lost their minds. It’s not preachy; it’s really practical.

“The problem is that we confuse seeing a bad thing with being angry,” explains Robina Courtin. Photograph: Dean Dampney/The Guardian

“Honey, listen to me,” said Courtin, softening. “Our problem is that we can’t deal with our own suffering or the suffering that’s out there, so we just want to make it all go away. We can’t. All we can do is do the best we can. in this crazy lunatic asylum we call planet Earth.

From convent school to death row

Earlier in the day, over lunch, Courtin explained, “I’ve always been involved in the world. I love the world and I love crazy humans. She is a “newspaper and news junkie”; his favorite publications include the Financial Times, the Economist and the Washington Post.

Courtin grew up in Melbourne, one of seven children in an exuberant and impoverished Catholic family. “The naughtiest in the family”, she was sent to a boarding school at the age of 12 in a convent. “I was in heaven, it was bliss,” she says. Not only did she finally have her own bed, but “there was no chaos around me, I had discipline. I went to mass every day. I was in love with God, Our Lady and the saints. It was perfect for me.”

At the end of her adolescence, she discovered boys. Realizing that she “couldn’t have God and the boys at the same time”, she “very consciously” decided “goodbye God, hello boys”. A second-hand record, bought for sixpence, led her to jazz. “I had this seven-inch LP that said ‘Billie Holiday’. I had no idea, I wondered who he has been! It opened me up. It just blew me away because it opened me up to this black American experience, of suffering human beings.

In the late 1960s, Courtin traveled to London, “raw and ready for revolution”. There she joined “radical left” protests and supported the Black Panther movement. In 1971, she began working full time for Friends of Soledad, a group of British political activists supporting three black American prisoners charged with the murder of a white prison guard. Then she moved on to the radical feminist movement. Shedding her taste for men, she became a “radical lesbian feminist”, learned martial arts, and moved to the United States to a lesbian-run dojo in New York City.

In 1976, back in Australia, in Queensland, with a broken foot that stopped his practice of martial arts, Courtin, 31, spotted a poster advertising a conference of two Tibetan Buddhists – Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche – and decided to accompany him. “That’s where I found my calling,” she says. “I have always looked for a way to see the world, why is there suffering, what are the causes? And I think I had exhausted all options for who to blame for the suffering in the world.

Since being ordained 44 years ago, Courtin has worked as the editor of Buddhist magazines and books. In 1996, after receiving a letter from a young former Mexican American gangster serving three life sentences in a maximum-security prison in California, she founded the Liberation Prison Project, a nonprofit organization that offers Buddhist teachings and support for prisoners.

Courtin ran the program for 14 years, helping thousands of inmates, and still keeps in touch with his “friends from prison.” Recently she visited a death row inmate in Kentucky since 1983. monster, and he’s a happy guy,” she says. A practicing Buddhist, “he is fulfilled and happy. He worked on his mind, accepted responsibility for his actions, and although he would like to be released from prison, he accepts his reality. “I’m ready for that electric jolt,” he told me.

I ask Courtin if she feels anger at the fate of this man. ” No I do not know. I try to help him where he is. That’s it,” she said. “I remember when I was a radical political activist in London in the early 1970s, that was when I was angry. It was when I was angry. Racism, sexism, injustice are just as bad now, if not worse – the American prison system is outrageous – but I work differently now.

“The problem is that we confuse seeing a bad thing with being angry. We think that if we give up on anger, we’re throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Courtin says she’s “always an activist “, but holding anger is like stabbing yourself with a knife – “it just paralyzes you”. Instead, she practices what she calls courageous compassion. “There’s a saying in Buddhism, a bird needs two wings, wisdom and compassion. Wisdom is internal, pulling itself together. Compassion is when you put your money where your mouth is and help the world.

Live in this world without losing your mind

Since the late 2000s, Courtin has lived out of a suitcase, teaching at Buddhist centers around the world, only stopping in March 2020 in Sante Fe when the pandemic hit. She started teaching on Zoom – “I love Zoom” – and a friend created and manages her social networks. His TikTok account, which has 85,600 followers, offers short videos, sometimes responding to current events, with titles like “How to live in this world without losing your mind”.

“There’s a way to use the world to grow your practice,” she says. Take former US President Donald Trump, for example. “I was looking at Mr. Trump and instead of fuming and raving about how bad he is, I was like, ‘Well, those are lies, I admit it. It’s anger, I admit it. It’s vanity, I admit. It’s arrogance, I admit it. There’s not a single fucking illusion Mr. Trump has that I don’t too. The Buddhist view is that we have all of these states of mind; we are all in the same boat. So I say, “Thank you for showing me how not to be.”

Recently, Courtin shared on social media that her sister, Jan, died following an accident at home. She says the huge response to her post “really touched me, because the people were so nice”. She took a flight from the United States as soon as she heard about the accident. Alongside her siblings in a hospital room in Melbourne as Jan’s life support was removed, Courtin whispered the Buddhist mantras that accompany death as the rest of the family loudly sang the song of the Sydney Swans team.

Once Courtin completes her teaching tour of Australia, she will move to New York, where she plans to settle “for the last years of my life.” She plans to write and edit, continue her personal study and Buddhist practice, and teach via Zoom. Maybe “I’ll go out to a jazz club at night,” she says, before adding, “Just kidding, I probably won’t go to the jazz club.

“I will try not to waste my life. Try to stay useful. Be useful before I die.

Deal brings solo country show to Mount Airy https://tadasei.com/deal-brings-solo-country-show-to-mount-airy/ Mon, 12 Sep 2022 18:17:00 +0000 https://tadasei.com/deal-brings-solo-country-show-to-mount-airy/

The annual Tommy Jarrell Celebration – to commemorate the life and music of the influential local musician, is scheduled for February 24-24. 26 at the Historic Earle Theater in Mount Airy.

The celebration includes concerts, a competition for young people, workshops and a film screening. The popular festival has something for all lovers of early music. The annual event celebrates the music and teachings of Surry County music pioneer and icon Tommy Jarrell, who lived from March 1, 1901 to January 28, 1985.

Many activities are planned at the Old-Time Music Heritage Hall in the Historic Earle Theater at 142 North Main Street.

On Thursday 24 February there are free courses for young people. The flatfoot dance is at 4:30 p.m., violin lessons at 5:30 p.m., followed by guitar, banjo, and mandolin lessons at 6:15 p.m. Music lessons are taught by Brown-Hudson Folklore Award winner Jim Vipperman as a traditional. musician and teacher. These lessons are sponsored in part by a TAPS grant from the Folklife Division of the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.

The Southeast Sirens Tour will take to the stage at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. The tour is presented by the Surry Arts Council and Pine State Marketing and features Caitlin Krisko & The Broadcast and Abby Bryant & The Echoes. Tickets are $15.

Friday at 7 p.m., free screening of “You Gave Me A Song”, a film about Alice Gerrard. The film offers an intimate portrait of early music pioneer Alice Gerrard and her remarkable and unpredictable journey in the creation and preservation of traditional music. A Q&A with director Kenny Dalsheimer and Gerrard will follow the film.

A short performance by Gerrard accompanied by Tatiana Hargreaves and Reed Stutz will follow the Q&A. This film and event are made possible in part by the vital support of Presenting Sponsor, the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources through their “She Changed the World: NC Women Breaking Barriers” and ” Come Hear NC”.

In a career spanning over 50 years, Gerrard has left an indelible mark on the history of traditional music. Her groundbreaking collaboration with Appalachian singer Hazel Dickens in the 1960s and 1970s produced four classic LPs (recently reissued by Rounder) and influenced dozens of young female singers. His next four solo albums, including Bittersweet, produced by Laurie Lewis, and Follow the Music, produced by Mike Taylor of His Golden Messenger, showcased Gerrard’s many talents: his captivating and eclectic songwriting; his powerful, cutting voice and instrumental mastery of rhythm guitar, banjo and old-school fiddle. Gerrard’s 2015 album Follow the Music was nominated for a Grammy. His latest release, Sing Me Back Home: The DC Tapes 1965-1969 on Free Dirt Records, won critical acclaim for its intimate insight into unreleased Hazel and Alice practice tapes.

Gerrard has appeared on over 20 recordings, including projects with many mainstream musicians such as Tommy Jarrell, Enoch Rutherford, Otis Burris, Luther Davis and Matokie Slaughter; with Tom Sauber and Brad Leftwich as Tom, Brad & Alice, with the Harmony Sisters, the Herald Angels, Beverly Smith, and with Anna Roberts-Gevalt and Elizabeth LaPrelle.

Students and staff remember their dearly departed pets https://tadasei.com/students-and-staff-remember-their-dearly-departed-pets/ Tue, 06 Sep 2022 03:35:00 +0000 https://tadasei.com/students-and-staff-remember-their-dearly-departed-pets/

Not to be confused with the Rainbow Road from Mario Kart, the Rainbow Bridge is a more solemn goal path. Created by author Deborah Barnes in 2015, Rainbow Bridge Memorial Day is a day to honor the memory of cherished pets who have passed away, according to a Newswire statement.

Since its launch, Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day has become a nationally recognized holiday. Celebrated each year on August 28, the day Barnes’ cat Mr. Jazz died, people fondly remember their deceased pets.

“(Today is) a time to remember those pets we have lost with love and happiness,” Barnes said in the press release.

This intention was not in vain. Although August 28 has come and gone, the memory of a lost loved one lives on forever. Kitty Crino, a sophomore studying fashion retail and merchandising, keeps the memory of her dog Vito alive with a large oil painting of him above her fireplace.

“It’s like his little altar, she says. “He is the best.”

Crino grew up with two Jack Russell terriers, Vito and Carmela, who were both successful – technically. About five years after Vito died, his family got another dog, Leonardo, and they went to see a pet psychic.

“[The pet psychic] told us Leonardo was Vito reincarnated, and when I first heard that, I burst into tears,” Crino said. “I feel like I have a special connection with my new dog, Leonardo, because I heard and believed this.”

In addition to Vito’s portrait, Crino’s family exhibits photos of Vito and Carmela and keeps their ashes in handmade urns. Her dad also has a keychain with Carmela’s necklace and name on it.

Carmela was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, and while her passing wasn’t a surprise, it still impacted Crino’s family.

“I knew she was going to a better place; she was going to be able to race again with Vito,” Crino said. “It was more just sad for my father, to be [she was] like his best friend.

A study published in the National Library of Medicine, titled “Pet Humanization and Related Grief,” said the loss of a pet can produce effects in people similar to those caused by losses like that of a spouse. , a child, health or employment.

Eileen Marsal Koch, LPCC-S, staff counselor for Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS), wrote in an email that she could relate to the study results “as a professional and a person who loves animals”.

Marsal Koch’s family lost three rescue dogs to natural causes.

“My family and I have truly mourned the loss of [those] dogs, as we considered them part of our family,” she wrote in the email. “Dogs can provide us with unconditional love – which can sometimes be hard to find in people.

The Humane Society of the United States echoes Marsal Koch’s sentiment, stating that “animals provide companionship, acceptance, emotional support, and unconditional love. … He is [OK] cry when [one’s] the animal dies.

Coping with the death of a pet is different for everyone, as is the grieving process. However, the Humane Society said finding ways to cope can “bring closer the day when memories bring smiles instead of tears.”

Kate Dennis, a second-year sports management student, had two growing schipperke dogs named Sam and Lex.

“[Sam passing away] was really hard for me, just because he was there my whole life,” Dennis said. “The house was really quiet once we lost him, but he really brought our family together.”

Dennis has many favorite memories with Sam, such as hanging out in the snow and getting “puppy mugs” from Dairy Queen. His family commemorates Sam with photos and custody of his ashes. They also have a new schipperke named Joy.

“Every event in my childhood life, I think of him,” she said.

The families of Crino and Dennis made the decision to have new dogs after their passing.•

“It can help alleviate the loss of a beloved pet,” Marsal Koch wrote in an email. “For others, it may not be the solution.”

The Human Society’s advice is not to rush into the decision. Take the time to grieve and ask yourself if the time has come.

According to Marsal Koch, students who have lost a pet can contact CPS at (740) 593-1616 to discuss the loss of a pet with a professional. Although there is no dedicated animal loss support group at Ohio University, she has provided this website with hotlines and online resources.

“I can’t believe I didn’t know [Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day]”Crino said. “I’m so glad I’m doing it now.”

Eleanor Baldi

Success came unexpectedly to Eleanor Baldi.

The 18-year-old rower and musician started her hobbies purely for fun, but as her confidence grew, she began to be a little less surprised by her accomplishments.

She started rowing in grade 11 and although it was hard to adjust to the early morning starts, she quickly found herself enjoying it.

“It’s hard to stop once you like it.”

In her first season, she had little success, but last year she started to rank higher.

Her confidence was growing, but she was still surprised when she unexpectedly landed second place in the U18 singles at the Aon Maadi Cup.

“It was really, really exciting.”

The more she did, the more confident she became and this year she placed first in the women’s single scull intermediate at the New Zealand Rowing Championships.

She still enjoys spending time outdoors and rowing allows her to both exercise and enjoy the experience of being on the lake alone or with a team.

Her passion for the outdoors is why she is considering a career in geography or environmental management, as it could help maintain the environment she loves.

While the mornings were spent rowing, after school she practiced her music.

She has been playing the clarinet for about seven years and the saxophone for three years.

Instruments offer a different style of enjoyment, but she finds herself more drawn to the saxophone.

She had never planned to take the saxophone, but while she was practicing for the school show, the music teacher announced that they had lost a saxophonist and she offered to take the place.

As she plays for the school band, she has a greater appreciation for the range and style of jazz.

She plays in the school jazz band and small combo band and after performing at the Dunedin Youth Jazz Festival she was shocked to receive an award for most promising tenor saxophonist.

Achievements: NZ Rowing Champs Intermediate single scull 1st (2022); Aon Maadi Cup U18 single sculls 2nd (2022); The Meridian South Island club, U18 single scull champion (2022); New Zealand World Rowing U19 Junior Trial (2022); Otago Rowing Association Rower of the Year Nominee (2022); Outstanding Achievement for Rowing (2022); cultural prefect (2022); Head of House (2022); Geography Summit (2021); Outdoor Education Summit (2021); cultural blue (2021); Baldwin Trophy for Woodwinds co-winner (2020, 2021); most promising tenor saxophone Dunedin Youth Jazz Festival (2021) academic blue (2020, 2021); Mention of excellence level 1, 2.

Model: His parents.

Hopes for the future: To study geography or environmental management.

Josh Stoddart

Whether in sports, culture or around school, Josh Stoddart wants to help others as much as he can.

The 17-year-old is head boy, leader of the kapa haka school group and spends his time coaching juniors in the sport.

He also holds various leadership positions at the school.

He spends time as a peer support leader and spends time helping junior students integrate into school.

This year he got involved in 40 Hours of Famine, a movement he finds inspiring.

He helped organize the event at school and got as many students interested as possible.

“It’s kind of nice to help someone else.”

Last year, he acted as the leader of the school’s breakfast club, where he showed up to school early on some mornings to help provide breakfast for students in need of food.

His passion for helping others began in Grade 11 when he became a basketball coach, a role he thoroughly enjoyed.

He then coached volleyball, the sport he is most passionate about.

He loves the fun nature of the game and the fact that there are a lot of skills to hone and perfect.

He also plays basketball and football and last year he was proud to play volleyball for Otago.

Outside of sports, Josh spends his time leading the senior kapa haka group and mentoring the juniors.

He started kapa haka around the age of 7 and has been participating in it ever since.

He loves how it gives him a chance to express his culture and feel closer to it, as well as an opportunity to perform.

Now, as a kapa haka tutor, he takes pride in helping others learn about kapa haka and makes sure to explain the culture and meaning of the art.

He always wants to better connect with his culture, which is why he learns te reo Maori.

Hailing from France and drawing on their Afro-Cuban heritage, the Ibeyi twin sisters create a deeply spiritual form of electronic pop that pays homage to the West African Yoruba faith in which they were raised. Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz sing in French, Spanish, Yoruba and English about magic, healing, miracles, blood ties and spiritual bonds. At the Regency Ballroom, they perform with Madison McFerrin, a graceful neo-soul singer and daughter of NEA music wizard and jazz master Bobby McFerrin.

The new Portola Music Festival brings together OG stars of electronic music with new highs and standout indie favorites. The Chemical Brothers and Flume are the headliners, and the rest of Bill features a well-curated and diverse lineup. There are ultra-hip house music DJs and producers like Peggy Gou, Kaytranada, Yaeji and Channel Tres; cult pop stars MIA, Caroline Polachek, Charlie XCX and PinkPantheress; singer-songwriters Toro y Moi, Arca, James Blake and Yves Tumor; hip-hop innovator (and San Jose native) DJ ​​Shadow and too many other artists to list. There’s no big mainstream EDM in Portola – it celebrates the more alternative and experimental side of DJ culture and electronic music.

Sept. 25, doors: 6:30 p.m., show: 8 p.m.

Japanese psych-rock band Kikagaku Moyo make perfect road trip music. Their guitar solos shimmer, chimes add a celestial glow, and the occasional sitar or wah pedal swirls through the composition. Singing softly in Japanese, the group evokes a more amplified version of the Beatles during the days of the acid trip, when George Harrison traveled to India to study transcendental meditation. Kikagaku Moyo’s profile has risen amid a psychedelic revival spearheaded in the US by their Texan Khruangbin peers. Unfortunately, the band recently announced an amicable breakup as they pursue other projects. Their show at Warfield may be the last time they perform in San Francisco in this incarnation.

September 30, 8 p.m.

It’s always a treat to see Kehlani at a hometown show, where fans who have followed the singer’s career since their days at Oakland School for the Arts sing every word. The Oakland-raised R&B star has spent the past few years maturing as a lyricist, and they described their latest album, blue water road, as a return to making the kind of music they want to listen to instead of satisfying market demands. The most honest approach works. With restrained, brooding production and an emphasis on Kehlani’s softly raspy vocals, blue water road captivates with its vivid vignettes of “it’s complicated” situations, queer desire, questionable decisions and budding romance. Even during a big arena show, Kehlani has a knack for connecting with her audience heart-to-heart.

The mainstream music world recently became familiar with Bomba Estéreo’s shimmering, neon-lit pop when she featured on Bad Bunny’s new album, A Verano Sin Ti. The Colombian duo helped the Puerto Rican reggaeton star land a softer sound on “Ojitos Lindos,” but they’ve been combining indie pop with global beats since their debut in 2006. Their latest album, Already, mixes elements of salsa, cumbia and folk music with bright synths and propelling grooves. Their Greek theater show promises a tropical dance party under the redwoods of Northern California.

Superorganism’s songs bounce with an overactive, childlike energy that unleashes listeners’ inner desire to play. (For example, their 2018 NPR Tiny Desk gig featured a band member whose job was to blow bubbles and splash in a bucket of water.) On their latest album, world pop, the group assumes human unity in the face of alien invaders, space travel and more mundane topics like not adapting to the latest trends. Their show at the Ritz should be a fun, fun time that encourages us to stretch our imaginations.

Bay Area music fans are blessed with so many beautiful parks that double as venues for live music. One of the lesser-known destinations is the summit of Mount Tam, a lush oasis of unique beauty with epic views of the Pacific Ocean and the entire Bay Area. Once a year, Sound Summit invites fans to enjoy some sweet indie rock at the top as part of a fundraiser for Roots & Branches Conservancy, a non-profit group dedicated to preserving natural gems like the Mount Tam. This year’s headliners include The War On Drugs, alternative country singer Faye Webster, folk band Fruit Bats and American soul sextet Wreckless Strangers.

August Hall, San Francisco
November 4, 7 p.m.

After two years of pandemic life and too many national crises to count, everyone is tired of pretending to be okay. Ever the savvy songwriter, Rexx Life Raj gives voice to the many messy stages of grief on his latest album, The blue Hour. The Berkeley-raised rap star wrote it after tragically losing both parents to health issues in 2021. As he began to open up about his grieving process, he received an outpouring of support from fans who also had something or someone to grieve—which, after the past two years, is a lot of us. The project shines a light on one of Raj’s greatest strengths: finding life lessons even in the toughest of times and giving his listeners the motivation to keep pushing. His show at August Hall is the last of his blue hour tour, and it should be a cathartic homecoming.

Our Friday COMMUNITY CONNECTION program featured a very special guest, Ari Crane.

Ari is a former US Army officer who has taken the time to examine post-tramatic stress disorder or PTSD and what treatments are available and which work better than others.

During his research, Ari Crane discovered that analog music at certain frequencies could help quiet the mind and, at times, aid in the physical healing process.

Ari is now starting a nonprofit to get a $40 Crsoley record player and select records into the hands of veterans and others with PTSD. For starters, he’s hosting a show and record sale on Saturday, September 10 at Crossing 2nd from noon to 4 p.m. with thousands of records to choose from. Profits will go directly to the mission.

Ari quoted us several studies on music therapy for veterans: how music can heal and rehabilitate

In 1950, the American Music Therapy Association was formed to serve veterans after volunteers saw how music had a positive impact on World War II veterans. Today, music therapy has become a popular field among mental health professionals. Numerous studies confirm the success of music therapy in treating different problems for patients, especially veterans.

Music therapy services are available for veterans of all wars, including Iraq and Afghanistan. With the guidance of trained and certified music therapists, veterans can overcome any issues they may face.

1. Music can help improve communication

2. Music-Based Treatments Help With Cognitive Rehabilitation

3. Heals Emotional and Social Problems

4. Music therapy treatment rebuilds physical muscles and coordination

5. Offer lasting healing to veterans

Several empirical studies have shown that using music therapy to treat PTSD and its symptoms has resulted in the following results:

Improved sense of self-esteem and reduced isolation through group drum therapy. (Bensimon, Amir and Wolf, 2008)

Significant reduction in post-traumatic stress symptoms using CBT alone or CBT with an additional 10 weeks of music therapy. (Carr et al., 2011)

Improved sleep quality and reduced anxiety symptoms after five (5) days of group therapy, with music and progressive relaxation scenario for half of the participants. (Hernandez-Ruiz, 2005)

Reduction of anxiety within the group. No change in depression or satisfaction with social relationships after application of music therapy for half of participants; variable treatment time. (Gold et al., 2014)

Music healed mice who felt pain relief after playing classic songs on July 8, 2022 by Brian Tomorrow. Wire scientists discovered how different sounds can dull pain in mice after playing classical music to injured rodents. They say the work could lead to safer treatments for pain in humans who rely less on opioids.

Studies dating back to the 1960s have shown that music and other sounds can help reduce pain during dental and medical surgery, childbirth, and cancer. However, exactly how the brain is able to process this pain reduction, or analogiza, is less clear.

Human brain imaging studies have implicated certain areas of the brain and music-induced analogies, but these are only associations that explain the study, according to author Dr. Kevin Lou of the National Institute of Dentistry. . He added that in animals, we can more fully explore and manipulate the circuitry to identify the neural substrates involved.

3 types of sounds were played to mice with flaming paws pleasant classical music and unpleasant reactivation of the same classical piece and white noise.

They found a route from the auditory cortex, which receives and processes sound information, to the thalamus, which acts as a relay station for sensory signals, including pain, from the body. In freely moving mice, low-volume white noise reduces the activity of neurons at the receiving end of the thalamus.

At some VA hospitals and medical centers, music therapy programs include support groups for veterans with PTSD to share music that reflects their feelings. These groups act as a musical “show and tell”, where members can practice relating to each other in a safe space through music. November 2, 2020

Some “sound” recommendations include, “432Hz for Sleeping Mozart Symphony Number 41 Jupiter by Brahms. Spotify & Soundcloud for Digital 174Hz Debussy – Violyn Marconi Union – Horizon Weightless Live – Tangerine Dream Prophecies – Philip Glass Rain – George Winston Voice in blue -Kitaro Don’t bother here – Path 5 cover stars (Delta) Max Richter & Grace Davidso Celestial vibration by soul jazz records Gregorian chant.”

The Fairfield Municipal Band attracts a wide range of talent https://tadasei.com/the-fairfield-municipal-band-attracts-a-wide-range-of-talent/ Thu, 25 Aug 2022 16:56:00 +0000 https://tadasei.com/the-fairfield-municipal-band-attracts-a-wide-range-of-talent/

FAIRFIELD – The Fairfield Municipal Band concluded its summer season on Tuesday, August 9, a little later than expected as the band had to make up for a concert canceled in June due to weather.

The band is an eclectic mix of talented musicians ranging in age from high schoolers to retirees. Some of them have played an instrument all their lives, while others rediscovered a passion for music later in life. That’s what happened to band member Ben Gosvig, who joined the band this year after not playing the trumpet for 40 years.

Gosvig played in the elite Vancouver Youth Band in his native Canada, one of the top youth orchestras in the country. He has taken lessons from some of Canada’s finest trumpeters. By his early twenties, Gosvig had become busy with other things and had to leave the youth group behind.

Now 68 and retired, Gosvig had time on his hands and decided to pick up this musical hobby from his youth. Just five months ago, he began taking lessons with trumpeter Derrick Murphy of the Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra. Gosvig said it was difficult at first, as he had to get his mouth muscles in shape.

“The trumpet doesn’t respect the holidays,” he said. “If you are absent, you pay the price. It’s not like the piano where you can just sit down and play.

Midway through the Fairfield Municipal Band season, band manager Jim Edgeton needed to find another trumpeter. Band member Paul Squillo knew of Gosvig’s performance background in Canada and suggested that he join the band.

“It’s been a lot of fun,” Gosvig said. “Although I have to admit that when I first started it was overwhelming to go through 12-15 pieces in rehearsal and perform them the next day. It’s a challenge, and it hones your sight-reading ability.

Gosvig said Edgeton is a “wonderful conductor” and was a pleasure to work with.

“He’s quite competent in the field,” Gosvig said. “He knows how to get a group behind the room. He’s good at people management as well as conducting, and you can see all those years of conducting in high school come to fruition. He’s a fun person to rehearse with. »

After rehearsing for two to two and a half hours on Monday night, Edgeton gives the band members the score to study or practice the next day before the Tuesday night gig. Gosvig said that because the trumpet is so physically demanding, trumpeters have to worry about “puffing their chops” before a performance.

“If you practice all 15 pieces on Tuesday during the day, you won’t have much fuel left for the night performance,” he said. “So I hum them to myself and do the trumpet fingering.”

Now that the season is over, Gosvig said he still plans to practice his instrument for two hours a day and continue his lessons with Murphy. He was invited to play with the Burlington Municipal Band, whose season continues through the fall and winter.

Gosvig said he enjoyed his first year with the Fairfield Municipal Band and has every intention of returning next year.

“I plan to keep working on it as hard as I can and I’ll be ready for next season,” he said.

Another band member who joined mid-season was Tracy Shaw, who plays clarinet. Shaw is the choir director at Van Buren High School and met Edgeton a few years ago when she became the pianist for the Van Buren Community Players, where Edgeton leads the pit band.

Shaw will be entering his 22nd year of teaching music this fall. She graduated from Van Buren High School in 1999 and returned to work in the district two years ago after stints in West Bend-Mallard and Lamoni. She performed four shows with the band this summer and appreciated the chance to try something new. She said the group’s rehearsals made her feel like one of its students.

“When they first get a piece of music, they’re like, ‘Oh, I don’t think we can do that,'” she said, and that’s how she feels the first time. that she sight-reads a piece during Monday rehearsals.

Shaw said she misses being in bands that play and loves that southeast Iowa provides opportunities for musicians to perform for the public.

“It’s great fun,” she said. “As long as they let me back, I’m more than happy to do it again next year.”

The group includes a number of high school students or recent graduates, people like trombonist AJ Roe, who just graduated from FHS this year. He liked the idea of ​​playing for his former band manager, Edgeton, and he was encouraged to join by current FHS band manager, Hannah Ball, who also plays in the band.

“I loved my experience playing in the band this summer and would love to play in the future,” he said. “The band members are really nice and fun to work with.”

Roe said he has never been in a band that sight-reads several pieces of music one night and performs them at a concert the next night.

“This system is amazing to me, but I find it helps me challenge myself to be a better trombone player, he said. “It’s an honor to be with these talented musicians, and they inspire me to keep playing.”

Roe loves that the band performs so many different musical genres. Some of his favorite genres are film themes, classics and jazz pieces.

“If I’m in the mood for some arm exercise, then a walk would do just fine,” he said. “If I had to choose one, it would be the jazz genre. I played in jazz bands for many years in college and high school, and plan to continue that genre in college and the Fairfield All-Star Jazz Band.

Roe said he plans to recruit friends to join the band next year.

“I’ve already suggested some people to join us, and I hope they have fun like me if they decide to join us next summer,” he said.

Smith Entertainment Group (SEG) announced a partnership with a private investment platform Arctos Sports Partners which includes Arctos’ minority investment in multiple SEG properties, reports SBJ Eric Prisbell.

They include the Jazzwaiting NBA Board of Governors approval; Real salt lake; and vivid arena. The scale of the investment was not disclosed.

The partnership between Arctos and the owner company Jazz Ryan Smith helms aims to bring a third professional franchise to the state. Sources declined to speculate on the potential sport. But the NWSL is recruiting two new ownership groups, and the demand from potential bidders will far exceed the supply of teams.

Almost all officials NHL sponsor followed during the 16th edition of the league Sponsor Breakthrough study, commissioning for the 2021-22 season for SBJ by MarketCastsaw a year-over-year improvement in the percentage of fans who were aware of this formal relationship, notes SBJ David Broughton.

The biggest beneficiaries of increased fan awareness have been Verizon and Geicowhich each saw those levels jump 10 percentage points from the comparable survey conducted over the same period in 2021. For its part, Verizon tripled its advertising spend on NHL TV broadcasts last season ( to $4.5 million), compared to the 2020-21 season, and aired about 500 ads (a five-fold increase), according to SBJ’s analysis of iSpot.tv The data.

Geico became the league’s top TV announcer last season ($6.3 million), leapfrogging former spenders Honda and Lexus.

Discover, a league sponsor since 2010, saw an improvement of nine percentage points en route to its highest level of recognition ever (28%). The payments company launched three of the season’s seven most viewed TV commercials, each with a song from at least a generation ago: a spot about fraud protection featured background music by Shaggy (“It was not me”); refund offers with Mister Mix-a-Lot (“baby came back”); and use-the-card-anywhere with Hootie and the puffer fish (“just wanna be with you”). The spots recorded a total of 346 million impressions.

Even without ESPNthe Big TenThe new set of partners will provide powerful college football programming on Saturdays this fall. The FoxSCSNBC triumvirate will provide the Big Ten with a NFL-like a range of games on live TV.

“The goal was to own every one of those windows,” Commissioner Big Ten said. Kevin Warren, which used the NFL as a template for its conference’s own rights negotiations. “To capture the hearts and minds and the greed of the fans, I think you have to make it really simple for your fans. So I always had this visual, especially coming out of the NFL, that we would have partners in each of those windows. And then we would have special events, like two games on Black Friday.

Each of the three networks will have a Big Ten football championship game – Fox will have four, CBS two and NBC one. FS1 and Big Ten Network will also broadcast a heavy dose of college football on its airwaves.

NBC’s longstanding relationship with our Lady could also create more confrontations between the Fighting Irish and Big Ten schools, such as Michiganwhich has disappeared from Notre Dame’s schedule in recent years.

Activist Investor Dan Loebthe suggestion that disney spin off ESPN has been met with a lot of skepticism because ESPN’s linear broadcast business is a major cash flow driver that supports other parts of Disney’s operations, writes SBJ. Chris Smith.

Disney pushed back in a letter of its own, defending its ‘strong financial results’ and CEO leadership Bob Chapeck. And in fact, Chapek had already reiterated to investors the previous week that sports betting remains a top and urgent priority for ESPN, regardless of a potential association with family-friendly Disney.

The united football league created its own spin on stadium development, doing much of the groundwork, often before identifying a potential ownership group. COO and Head of Real Estate justin Papadakis said stadium projects require so much consensus and building from local stakeholders that USL decided to take a different approach.

“We go to the markets…and really find the right stadium site, work with the stakeholders, put together the pitch and all the rights, and a whole bunch of professional services that come with creating a stadium,” Papadakis said. .

He described the entire process in an SBJ Spotlight interview with a football writer Alex Silverman.

Papadakis also spoke of local successes, including teams of New Mexico and Detroit, and the possibility of a larger media rights deal for the league. Regarding media rights, Papadakis said: “On the digital side and on the OTT side, we have this tonnage, with over a thousand matches, but more importantly, what we bring is 35 ongoing markets. over 80.”
