En este episodio muy especial de Songmess nuestra serie ecuatoriana continúa con una alucinante conversación junto a la compositora, cantante, educadora y poeta Kichwa, Tamya Morán. La comunidad indígena, y en particular la comunidad Kichwa, es sumamente visible en Ecuador, donde se desempeñan en gran parte en ámbitos agricultores y artísticos. Nuestra entrevista con Tamya abarca los retos de ser una mujer indígena desenvolviéndose en el mundo cultural occidental, la importancia de mantener costumbres ancestrales vivas y en evolución, cuestionamientos hacia su propia comunidad, como la vestimenta tradicional puede ser un arma de resistencia, y mucha música. Este fue el primer episodio que grabamos en Quito y las poderosas palabras de Tamya resonaron con nosotros por todo el resto del viaje. Episodio imperdible!

We had the pleasure of interviewing Nikki Yanofsky over Zoom video!Montreal based jazz singer Nikki Yanofsky returns today with the release of her new album ‘Nikki By Starlight' via MNRK Music Group – a 15-track voyage through vintage jazz standards from storied musicians Frank Sinatra, Chet Baker, Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, and more. ‘Nikki By Starlight' was co-produced with the JUNO-winning producer/composer Paul Shrofel and features contributions from Stevie Wonder's bandmate Greg Phillinganes, Nathan East (Eric Clapton, Herbie Hancock, Michael Jackson) and the iconic Cuban-American jazz trumpeter Arturo Sandoval.Yanofsky recorded these songs on a vintage RCA 77C, the microphone that was used by Ella Fitzgerald. Yanofsky's transportive musical touch brings the Great American Songbook into the 21st century, providing a chance for new audiences and existing fans alike to fall in love with a refreshed style.Ultimately, ‘Nikki By Starlight' is a mix of ballads, uptempo tracks and sambas that make you believe in teleportation. “Comes Love” has a real slinky vibe reminiscent of an old-fashioned speakeasy, “C'est Si Bon'' is a nod to 1960s Paris with a very classic French arrangement, “West Coast Blues'' features a pocketed ensemble with Greg Phillinganes on organ and a Lalo Schifrin inspired horn solo, and “Estate” is an Italian classic featuring Arturo Sandovel's signature trumpet.With ‘Nikki By Starlight,' Yanofsky continues to prove her artistry – stemming all the way back to when she sang the National Anthem on live television at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver in front of 3.2 billion people. Yanofsky's self-titled album ‘Nikki,' released in 2010, gained the attention of the late prolific songwriter Rod Temperton (“Thriller,” “Rock With You,” “Boogie Nights”), who took her under his wing becoming her mentor, creative coach and musical champion. Her sophomore effort Little Secret, found Yanofsky exploring the velvet-clad sweet spot between jazz and pop with bold sentiments that signaled a self-assured coming of age. In 2020 she released ‘Turn Down The Sound,' a 10-track LP (eOne Music) that showcases her independence and marks a newfound departure for her career as a young musician, earning praise upon release from Billboard, Uproxx, and more.We want to hear from you!

Paris, sixième arrondissement, on passe devant l'hôtel de la Louisiane, on continue encore une centaine de mètres, sur la droite on y est. Alexandre Desplat nous reçoit dans un studio d'enregistrement, à l'occasion des sorties en salle du film Tirailleurs et de Pinocchio sur Netflix, dont il a signé les musiques. Un lieu aux « espaces restreints mais très chaleureux, avec beaucoup de boiseries », dans lequel « il a passé des nuits et des nuits ».Le compositeur de musiques de film âgé de 61 ans évoque son enfance passée à Paris auprès d'un père rabelaisien collectionneur de disques de jazz et une mère d'origine grecque qui lit beaucoup et enseigne le yoga à écouter Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, du fado ou de la musique indienne, ses rituels autour du thé japonais, sa passion pour la flûte traversière, sa découverte des ballets russes, de Stravinsky, Ravel, Prokofiev, son goût de l'étranger et du cinéma italien, son admiration pour John Williams, sa détestation pour le XIXe siècle bourgeois, ses longues années d'apprentissage en collaborant à l'émission télé « Nulle part ailleurs », sa rencontre décisive avec Jacques Audiard et le rôle central du metteur en scène...Il revient aussi longuement sur ses méthodes pour composer ses bandes originales : « Je travaille avec le film tourné. Je vais chercher ma musique dans le tréfonds de la psychologie des personnages, ce sont eux qui vont m'emmener. Je passe des heures avec les comédiens dans mon studio à les regarder sur écran. Je vis avec Cate Blanchett, Brad Pitt, Romain Duris. J'ai besoin de lutter avec l'image. »Depuis quatre saisons, la productrice Géraldine Sarratia interroge la construction et les méandres du goût d'une personnalité. Qu'ils ou elles soient créateurs, artistes, cuisiniers ou intellectuels, tous convoquent leurs souvenirs d'enfance, tous évoquent la dimension sociale et culturelle de la construction d'un corpus de goûts, d'un ensemble de valeurs.Un podcast produit et présenté par Géraldine Sarratia (Genre idéal)préparé avec l'aide de Diane Lisarelli et Imène BenlachtarRéalisation : Emmanuel BauxMusique : Gotan Project Hébergé par Acast.

Billie Holiday ascended from the rough and tumble streets of Baltimore and Harlem, through reform school, brothels, and Welfare Island, right to the top of the music game. Her childhood fascination with “whorehouse music” filled a void in her lost innocence, but she soon found a second stabilizer: Heroin. Just when her sensational “Strange Fruit” brought her to Columbia Records, her dependency on hard drugs landed her behind bars. Her mesmerizing voice ensnared listeners unlike any other jazz singer of her day, but in the end, it was narcotics that eventually ensnared Billie Holiday and sealed her fate.

I'm sure that many people coming out of this holiday season, returning from visiting relatives will wonder: “couldn't we abolish the capitalist family structure?” We've got great news! We're happy to present this conversation between Scott and Sophie Lewis, author of Abolish The Family: A Manifesto of Care and Liberation. In this episode, Sophie speaks about the book, the ideas and inspirations she's pulling from, the critique that the family form not only passes property and generationally allows concentrations of it, but simultaneously limits our horizons of care to these small, private and often abusive relationships. Here we also find ideas of Child Liberation, a challenge to the state form and capitalism, and an invitation to imagine beyond what we've been taught is the natural nucleus of human relationships in what turns out to be a long lineage of ideas cast back through Black feminisms of the 70's and beyond. Anyway, there was a lot here and we hope you enjoy.

The “Synchronicity Architect" is founder and CEO of META, an immersive experience studio that specializes in “The Art of Being There.” A new META spinoff, launching publicly in early 2022, Unreality is set to be the definitive professional ecosystem for the global “Immersive Media industry.” Taking their skills and touch to nature, Bolognino and wife Elizabeth founded Silent G Farms in North Branch, NY, a retreat compound designed for nourishing creativity and consciousness. JB also helped to develop and launch of Brooklyn Bowl (2009), serving as Creative and Media Director, as well as Arcadia Earth (2019) in NYC, the first artist-driven immersive experience dedicated to sustainability, where he also designed two of the installations.With brand clients like Spotify, Twitter, HP, Samsung, Google, Vimeo, and artistic collaborations with St. Vincent, Dubfire, Skrillex, Phish, Porter Robinson, Troye Sivan, Tiesto and many more, META creates live, multi-sensory experiences that use technology, design and storytelling to ignite the human spirit. META was born originally as “the Meta Agency” in 2009 under Bolognino's philosophy that the artists creating cutting-edge digital event designs and high-tech performance elements should be recognized, much like the celebrities and brands they create for. An industry visionary, Bolognino is extremely forward-thinking when it comes to technology's role in immersive experiences. Over the last 15 years, Bolognino has helped make Brooklyn Bowl a celebrated institution, redefined the SXSW experience through #FEED, produced multiple documentaries, led marketing campaigns, and created interactive art and live music for the sake of creation through his first company, Learned Evolution. His role as designer and curator of The Lab at Panorama, and Director of The Antarctic dome show at Coachella, “FLATLAND: A Romance of Many Dimensions”, has played an essential part in the evolution of the festival experience. Bolognino currently lives at Silent G Farms with wife Elizabeth, daughters Chloe and Francesca, son Just, and puppy Billie Holiday.SHOW INTRO:For some time now I have been interested in the merging of design, AI, technology, neuroscience, and art. They all seem to be coalescing into the creation of a new form of place-making.I like most others have been calling it 'immersive experiences' And while the places that are now being created to provide them are proliferating, I think that we are often seeing them only as spectacle. We pay a few dollars, get immersed in data paintings and surround sound, sometimes get corralled into a gift shop, and we're done. My guess is that we don't often look beyond the use of light and data as building materials – which on it's own is a fantastic and transformational tool in our designers tool box – to consider things like the interrelationship of the design of our environment and consciousness.I'm a big advocate of ontological design, which in its most basic description can be frames as - the things we design design us back. Our brain/body/mind is in a reciprocal feedback loop in which the things we design and put into the world in turn influence our neuro-biochemistry and neuro-physiology so that we are literally made in the image of the environments we inhabit.If we venture down the path of consciousness, we need to consider then that we are not singular entities in this world but that we are part of an integrated and interdependent rhythmic whole. Nicola Tesla wrote an article for Colliers Magazine in 1926 where he penned …“When wireless is perfectly applied, the whole earth will be converted to a huge brain, which in fact it is. All things being particles of a real and rhythmic whole…” He went on to explain that ‘the devices with which we would do this would fit in our breast packet and we would communicate with each other independent of geography…'1926!While written almost a hundred years ago Tesla was envisioning a future of digital communication where we would share information, enabled by software and hardware, and in doing so, we would augment our mindware.Dr. Dan Siegal has a definition of mind that seems to work from me.He explains the mind this way: The Mind is an “emergent, self-organizing, embodied, and relational process that regulates the flow of energy and information.”Our minds are in constant reciprocal feedback loop with the environment including the people in it. We are not independent of it. Each of us as a constituent of a larger whole.The environments we inhabit change us as do the other people that we share those environments with. While we participate in our environments, digitally immersive or otherwise, our perceptions are our realities. This too invites us to consider the various types of realities we now engage in. We are growing beyond what we would have only considered as the reality of immediate experience. The ‘as lived' in ‘real-time' reality of every day. We now have Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. But it doesn't stop there.This is where Justin Bolognino helps created a framework for how we are coming to experience the world around us.Justin's ground-breaking endeavors are threaded by technology, real-time design and evolutionary immersive experiences that focus on revealing hidden human connections. For Justin, our world of experiences include a number of realities can be mapped. Between the Universe – the analog realities and the Metaverse – the digital realities, he defines 6 realities including sonic, IRL, conscious, augmented, virtual and on-line realities.All of these are interrelated and influence the others as well as how we create experiences. Justin's Map of realities is complex and layered with an acute awareness of where each plays a role in our lives creating context meaning and levels of consciousness.He calls himself a “Synchronicity Architect", which is a whole other realm of discussion that we get to in our conversation, and is the founder and CEO of META, an immersive experience studio that specializes in “The Art of Being There.” His company was founded originally as “the Meta Agency” in 2009 under Bolognino's philosophy that the artists creating cutting-edge digital event designs and high-tech performance elements should be recognized, much like the celebrities and brands they create for. Bolognino is extremely forward-thinking when it comes to technology's role in immersive experiences. Over the last 15 years, Bolognino has helped make Brooklyn Bowl a celebrated institution, redefined the SXSW experience through #FEED, produced multiple documentaries, led marketing campaigns, and created interactive art and live music for the sake of creation through his first company, Learned Evolution.He is a jazz musician and our conversation was woven with music theory, neuro and social science, digital media making, consciousness, branding, the influence of social networks on culture and more. There's a lot to Justin Bolognino, much more than I could ever hope to unpack in one podcast.Furthermore, I got the deep impression that the simple auditory format of the show would not do justice to Justin.I nevertheless take that limitation as a given and encourage all to visit his website and dive into his multilayered creative framework for creating live, multi-sensory experiences that use technology, design and storytelling to ignite the human spirit. ABOUT DAVID KEPRON:LinkedIn Profile: linkedin.com/in/david-kepron-9a1582bWebsites: https://www.davidkepron.com    (personal website)vmsd.com/taxonomy/term/8645  (Blog)Email: david.kepron@NXTLVLexperiencedesign.comTwitter: DavidKepronPersonal Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/davidkepron/NXTLVL Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nxtlvl_experience_design/Bio:David Kepron is a multifaceted creative professional with a deep curiosity to understand ‘why', ‘what's now' and ‘what's next'.

In questa puntata passiamo in rassegna quattro importanti libri usciti quest'anno. You Tourned The Tables On Me è la nuova edizione (editore seipersei), in formato più grande, di un classico di Roberto Masotti, il grande fotografo mancato nell'aprile scorso: un lavoro emblematico della trasversalità dell'approccio di Masotti alla scena musicale degli anni settanta. Curato da Markus Muller, Free Music Production: The Living Music (testi in inglese o tedesco), è un monumento alla Fmp, l'etichetta tedesca che è stata il principale riferimento discografico per l'improvvisazione radicale europea. Blues e femminismo nero (Edizioni Alegre) è un fondamentale e illuminante saggio di Angela Davis - autrice che non ha bisogno di presentazioni - sulle istanze protofemministe presenti nella produzione di Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith e Billie Holiday: una traduzione che si attendeva da anni. Come quella di Liberare il tempo di Paul Bley, pubblicato nella eccellente collana Chorus di Quodlibet: autobiografia molto stimolante e allo stesso tempo godibile per la vena di humour che la percorre di uno dei più grandi pianisti emersi nel jazz della seconda metà del novecento.

All you need to know about Ryan White's (“The Keepers”, “The Case Against 8”) enthusiasm for taking on the project that would eventually become his awe-inspiring new documentary “Good Night Oppy” is that the Cabbage Patch doll he had as a kid was the astronaut version (currently selling on Etsy for up to $200). Couple this opportunity to revisit his childhood passion for space with the fact that the company behind the project is Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment — makers of Ryan's favorite movie of all-time, “E.T.” — and what you've got is the perfect creative marriage of filmmaker and subject. Ryan joined Mike and Ken to explore the constellation of joyful moments and creative challenges that propelled “Good Night Oppy” on its journey from launch to successful landing. After the experience of spending 90 minutes inside a photoreal environment of Mars, what scene turned everything on its head and became Ryan's favorite of the movie? What's the inherent tension that exists between NASA scientists and engineers, and how did they manage to gel so well on this mission? How does the film bring to life the story of an adorable robot while remaining, at its core, a film about people and their attempt to do something for the betterment of humankind? And, as Oppy reaches the end of his miraculous mission, why did a song of Billie Holiday's take on a starring role? Join us for an out-of-this-world conversation with Ryan White.

Subscribe to Quotomania on Simplecast or search for Quotomania on your favorite podcast app!James Mercer Langston Hughes was born February 1, 1901, in Joplin, Missouri. Hughes's birth year was revised from 1902 to 1901 after new research from 2018 uncovered that he had been born a year earlier. His parents divorced when he was a young child, and his father moved to Mexico. He was raised by his grandmother until he was thirteen, when he moved to Lincoln, Illinois, to live with his mother and her husband, before the family eventually settled in Cleveland, Ohio. It was in Lincoln that Hughes began writing poetry. After graduating from high school, he spent a year in Mexico followed by a year at Columbia University in New York City. During this time, he worked as an assistant cook, launderer, and busboy. He also travelled to Africa and Europe working as a seaman. In November 1924, he moved to Washington, D.C. Hughes's first book of poetry, The Weary Blues, (Knopf, 1926) was published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1926 with an introduction by Harlem Renaissance arts patron Carl Van Vechten. Criticism of the book from the time varied, with some praising the arrival of a significant new voice in poetry, while others dismissed Hughes's debut collection. He finished his college education at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania three years later. In 1930 his first novel, Not Without Laughter(Knopf, 1930), won the Harmon gold medal for literature.Hughes, who claimed Paul Laurence Dunbar, Carl Sandburg, and Walt Whitman as his primary influences, is particularly known for his insightful portrayals of black life in America from the twenties through the sixties. He wrote novels, short stories, plays, and poetry, and is also known for his engagement with the world of jazz and the influence it had on his writing, as in his book-length poem Montage of a Dream Deferred (Holt, 1951). His life and work were enormously important in shaping the artistic contributions of the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s. Unlike other notable black poets of the period such as Claude McKay, Jean Toomer, and Countee Cullen, Hughes refused to differentiate between his personal experience and the common experience of black America. He wanted to tell the stories of his people in ways that reflected their actual culture, including their love of music, laughter, and language itself alongside their suffering.In addition to leaving us a large body of poetic work, Hughes wrote eleven plays and countless works of prose, including the well-known “Simple” books: Simple Speaks His Mind (Simon & Schuster, 1950); Simple Stakes a Claim (Rinehart, 1957); Simple Takes a Wife (Simon & Schuster, 1953); and Simple's Uncle Sam (Hill and Wang, 1965). He edited the anthologies The Poetry of the Negro and The Book of Negro Folklore, wrote an acclaimed autobiography, The Big Sea (Knopf, 1940), and cowrote the play Mule Bone (HarperCollins, 1991) with Zora Neale Hurston.Langston Hughes died of complications from prostate cancer on May 22, 1967, in New York City. In his memory, his residence at 20 East 127th Street in Harlem has been given landmark status by the New York City Preservation Commission, and East 127th Street has been renamed “Langston Hughes Place.”From https://poets.org/poet/langston-hughes. For more information about Langston Hughes:Previously on The Quarantine Tapes:Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o about Hughes, at 16:05: https://quarantine-tapes.simplecast.com/episodes/the-quarantine-tapes-137-ngg-wa-thiongo“Song for Billie Holiday”: http://stephenfrug.blogspot.com/2013/08/poem-of-day-langston-hughes-song-for.htmlSelected Poems of Langston Hughes: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/84090/selected-poems-of-langston-hughes-by-langston-hughes/“Religion ‘around' Langston Hughes, Billie Holiday, and Ralph Ellison”: https://aas.princeton.edu/news/roundtable-conversation-religion-around-langston-hughes-billie-holiday-and-ralph-ellison“Langston Hughes: The People's Poet”: https://nmaahc.si.edu/explore/stories/langston-hughes-peoples-poet“Langston Hughes”: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poets/langston-hughes“Langston Hughes Papers”: https://beinecke.library.yale.edu/collections/highlights/langston-hughes-papers

It's past being controversial by now, but the first "Jazz and Strings" albums were not always warmly received. Some regarded it as "selling out" to commercial interests, but in many cases, it was the artists themselves who fought for the opportunity to record with a string orchestra - think Nat King Cole, Charlie Parker, and Billie Holiday.

Natasha Blaine is a Nashville-based singer and songwriter from Seattle, Washington. She blends roots in vocal jazz with soul, R&B, and pop music—citing great influence from artists like D'Angelo, Lianne La Havas, Amy Winehouse, and Emily King. Her songwriting, described as "direct, unfiltered and emotionally immediate,” buttery vocals, and energizing live shows have quickly caught the attention of the Nashville music scene.At six years old, Blaine started singing jazz. Her grandmother kept Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday records on repeat, teaching Blaine the words to old standards. And when she wouldn't stop singing them during kindergarten, her grandmother put her in voice lessons. Blaine picked up guitar at nine, sparking a love for songwriting before she even hit middle school. In 2018, while Blaine spent a few months studying literature in London, England, she made the decision to move from Seattle to Nashville, Tennessee. She wound up attending Vanderbilt University, getting a degree in literature and becoming the school's first vocal jazz student. In 2021, she became heavily involved in the famous Nashville writers' round circuit, writing songs and gigging at night.https://www.natashablaine.com/https://www.instagram.com/natashablaine/?hl=enhttps://www.facebook.com/natashablainemusic/Host - Trey Mitchelltreymitchellphotography IGfeeding_the_senses_unsensored on IGtrey mitchell: facebook.com/profile.php?id=100074368084848For sponsorship Information or submitting for interviews -  ftsunashville@gmail.comTheme Song - Damien HorneTake It From Me @damienhorne
