World Science Festival 2009: Notes & Neurons

Quote
Is our response to music hard-wired or culturally determined? Is the reaction to rhythm and melody universal or influenced by environment? Join host John Schaefer, scientist Daniel Levitin and musical artist Bobby McFerrin for live performances and cross cultural demonstrations to illustrate musics note-worthy interaction with the brain and our emotions.

Actually, I'm surprised I didn't do a shout out for cellist Caroline Lavelle when I did Loreena McKennett above.

liveloreena.jpgRecommend some music videos to me!

Caroline is one of those musicians who provides the whole package - in this case the dreamy, romantic, elegant cellist. She's got 'the look', the voice, and can she ever play the cello.

This from her appearance at the TED talks performing Farther Than the Sun.



And for fans of celtic inspired pop No More Words - The Trees They Do Grow High



Bunches more up on YouTube. And her website can be found here. :Thmbsup:

Hmm..traditional step and hip-hop moves with world-beat fiddle playing?

Too soon to tell if it's really going to go anywhere. But it looks promising . And it's a cute performer, and a cute little video, either way.

So what's not to like?  :)

And now, without further ado...Ms. Lindsey Stirling:



Oh yeah...camera sweeps, anime haircut, and punk wardrobe aside, she can (and does) do all that 'stuff' live in case you're wondering. Plays violin too!  ;D

I think anime is the perfect word for that!  She reminds me of that brilliant piano virtuoso from Japan, Hiromi...or something like that.  Mmmm....cute girls and violins!

ahh....you got me there!  In college, there was a strange guy in our dorms that REALLY enjoyed the Sailor Moon cartoons.  He really liked it, his roommates will attest to that.

^Usually plays her part live over a recorded backing sequence.

Although I could see her performing with someone like Thomas Dolby. Give him a modern sampling keyboard and a half hour to program it and he could easily fake an entire orchestra. I've seen him do it. Just throw in Dr. Didge on didgeridoo (or a good bull-roarer player) for authentic "wub-wub" and you'd be all set.

Doing the camera sweeps and locale changes live might be a problem however. Need a magician for that.  ;D

Billy Idol with Hold of Really like - IMHO his best out of the three excellent audio he submitted. It characteristics a rather fascinating style and bit-part celebrity known as Betsy Lynne Henry as Devon (how 80's), the loli-girl down-the-hall next door neighbor. (Really! How Eighties can you get?) I'd like it if he would re-record this without that overproduced MTV seem. It wold be better as a immediately mountain instrument variety.

Note: There's also full footage (1.5 hours) of one of her Tin Angel concerts that can be found here.
 ...

Maybe a little off topic, but I have a question regarding this video.  I got the .flv file from Youtube, it plays ok but I'd like to convert it to another format (DVD and iPod).  I have tried 2 different video converters that used to work fine : Any Video Converter from Anvsoft and XmediaRecode.  They both have an issue : in the resulting video, the sound is terribly out of sync.  I know it's a common problem, but if someone knows a converter that would handle .flv format better, I'd appreciate it a lot.  Thanks.

Here's a great video. Actually, 12 videos
:)
Girl Walk // All Day is a feature-length dance music video and tale of urban exploration that follows three dancers across New York City.
[...]
is set to All Day, the album by mash-up musician Gregg Gillis (aka Girl Talk)
Love the music too ;-)

! If you dont like long intros, skip to 2:15



some of the "chapters" are censored here on YT
Spoiler
Unfortunately, this video is not available in Germany, because it may contain music for which GEMA has not granted the respective music rights.

- if so, try

I agree :D
I've watched it all. It's difficult to actually sit and watch :)
The music is available as a free (slow) download here - with a CC license:
http://illegal-art.net/allday/

only downside is I'm going around the place singing totally sexist hip-hop lines, in sometimes very inappropriate places...

I hope I haven't posted this already.  But I found the excerpt below from Gene Harris' biography (written by his widow), so I feel compelled.  Gene is my primary influence in piano, his music is wonderful.  Following the excerpt below is one of the songs from the concert described (two parts):

Quote
In reality, I don't think Gene and I viewed Otter Crest as a turning point in his life until a few months later when a videotape of his performance, sent by a member of the Jazz Society of Oregon sound crew, arrived in the mail. At the time, neither Gene nor I had any idea that the concert had been taped. I was surprised and excited and wanted to watch the tape immediately, the gene was strangely hesitant. "What?" I said. "What are you talking about? I was there; you have got to see this. You're not going to believe it. First of all, you're not going to believe the way you played, and second of all, you're not going to believe the joy written all over your face, John's face, Jimmy's face, the audience screaming and yelling. You could put your hands in the air and feel the energy and the love. There aren't words to describe what you guys did."

He seemed almost embarrassed at the prospect of watching himself on tape, which I didn't understand. "Haven't you ever seen yourself perform?" I asked.

"Never," he said. "Not once, and I'm not sure I'm ready now."

"Well, it's about time," I said, taking the tape and putting it in our video recorder and then getting him a beer. As Gene sat and watched he became transfixed. Like so many others who had enjoyed his music over the past 30+ years, he was alternately laughing, shaking his head, and fighting back the tears throughout the two-hour recording. When it ended, he just sat there for a minute, as if not believing what he had just witnessed. "My God," he finally said, "now I know why people are the way they are after I finish playing. I never really understood."

"Didn't you ever listen to your recordings?" I asked.

"No, not very often," he replied, as if suddenly realizing the impact his music had on others. "I...never...knew..."

I think it was then--in watching the Otter Crest crowd's wild and spontaneous reaction and the way Smith and Heard fed off of his playing--that Gene realized that he needed to share his talent with a larger audience and seek the widespread recognition that had eluded him for so long.

Oh my!

First a quibble: Does it have to be a music video, or just a song? Because of X videos it's a lot of work to find the ORIGINAL video on some songs!  Some songs didn't even HAVE a video, so it got added later.

Okay, some random stuff:
Classic: http://www.youtube.c.../watch?v=cMfmzEpvW-g
Bulbous Bouffant - a graphically inserted video version

Then some Tim Minchin:
Predjudice (Nice litle double-kicker half way through)
http://www.youtube.c.../watch?v=KVN_0qvuhhw

The 3 Minute Song
http://www.youtube.c.../watch?v=58mE7Vy1Xrc (Ruth Jones version)
http://www.youtube.c...&feature=related (Royal Variety Version)

Sometimes we forget to listen to Jimi and need a reminder. ;)

I have purchased more than 1 copy. ;)

They wear out after a while, or you lose them or something like that.

Not that it matters... Jimi is dead.

And immediately afterwards, in my head I hear "Diamonds!... and rust!". :P
(I wore that album out probably 3 times in my skateboarding years. Awesome stuff)

P.S. My favorite cover of "All Along the Watchtower":

Tons more soul and attitude than the album version, in fact that whole compilation had some killer tracks from seminal up-and-comers, scene staples, one-hit wonders and forgettables.
This was the soundtrack for my first year out of high school :Thmbsup:

synchronicity (ˌsɪnkrəˈnɪsɪtɪ) —noun
   (1) an apparently meaningful coincidence in time of two or more similar or identical events that are causally unrelated


I recently found this on YouTube quite by accident while looking for something else.

For those of you who are Portal fans - or just enjoy a cute song - here's the famous ending credit number Still Alive sung by the computer-villain GLaDOS and cleverly re-purposed as a tribute to the Amiga computer.



I'm amazed at how well it works in this context. ;D

Still Alive (lyrics)
Quote
Still Alive
music and lyrics by Jonathan Coulton for Portal


This was a triumph.

I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.

It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.

Aperture Science
We do what we must
because we can.
For the good of all of us.
Except the ones who are dead.

But there's no sense crying over every mistake.
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
And the Science gets done.
And you make a neat gun.
For the people who are still alive.

I'm not even angry.
I'm being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me.

And tore me to pieces...
And threw every piece into a fire.
As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!

Now these points of data make a beautiful line.
And we're out of beta.
We're releasing on time.
So I'm GLaD. I got burned.
Think of all the things we learned
for the people who are still alive.

Go ahead and leave me.
I think I prefer to stay inside.
Maybe you'll find someone else to help you.

Maybe Black Mesa...

THAT WAS A JOKE.
HAHA. FAT CHANCE.

Anyway, this cake is great.
It's so delicious and moist...

Look at me still talking
when there's Science to do.
When I look out there, it makes me GLaD I'm not you.
I've experiments to run.
There is research to be done.
On the people who are still alive.

And believe me I am still alive.
I'm doing Science and I'm still alive.
I feel FANTASTIC and I'm still alive.
While you're dying I'll be still alive.
And when you're dead I will be still alive.
STILL ALIVE!

(Still alive.)



Better watch it before they take it down. :) :Thmbsup:
