Why You Should Hire a Musician

via The Undercover Recruiter by Anne Fitzgibbon

“As founder and Executive Director of the Harmony Program, an organization that brings music-making into under-served New York City communities, I have seen hundreds of young people develop not only instrumental facility and music appreciation, but also a broad base of life skills that contribute to their long-term success – academically, socially, and professionally.

Resolume 6.1.0 Sync to the DJ

We have always been big fans of Resolume, which, in many ways, is the VJ software component of Serato. Here is their latest update about 6.1.0:

The 6.1.0 release is a major point release, which means we added a big feature. As we announced a few weeks ago, we made it a lot easier to sync a prepared video set to the audio coming from the DJ.

Love technology?

Love art?

Here’s a library of man-made sounds, from long-gone typewriters, clocks, blenders, etc., that might serve a similar, if unnatural, source of inspiration. Samplers, start your engines…”

»Conserve the sound« is an online museum for vanishing and endangered sounds. The sound of a dial telephone, a walkman, a analog typewriter, a pay phone, a 56k modem, a nuclear power plant or even a cell phone keypad are partially already gone or are about to disappear from our daily life.
