Miles Davis & Prince Link On Scrapped 'Tutu' Jam "Can I Play With U" Okayplayer. Musical firebrands Miles Davis and Prince link on the previously unheard “Can I Play With U” (Extended). The track written by Prince and recorded for Davis’ 1986 Tutu LP was later scrapped. The result of a chance meeting at the airport in Los Angeles, the song’s genesis and ultimate absence from the project is detailed by Prince’s former tour manager Alan Leeds in an excerpt from author George Cole‘s book The Last Miles: The Music of Miles Davis (1980-1991) TLM: Can you explain how “Can I Play With U?”

Happened? Though Prince felt the track missed the mark, the bold recording suggests that the pair were truly cut from the same funky cloth. Spotted at BB.

Photos volées, chansons piratées, reproductions illégales d’oeuvre d’art… internet est une lessiveuse géante en matière de droits d’auteur. Grâce à l’authentification par la technologie blockchain, ces dérives pourraient bientôt tourner court. En 2015, l’artiste américain Richard Prince a vendu une de ses photos 100 000 dollars lors d’une exposition à New York. Une photo dont il n’est pas l’auteur, mais qu’il a simplement reprise de son fil Instagram. Le véritable auteur n’a lui été ni informé ni rémunéré d’aucune façon. Et voilà bien le drame de l’art numérique.

Aujourd’hui, n’importe quelle photo, chanson, vidéo ou fichier peut être copié et récupéré par des internautes. Charge pour l’ayant-droit de traquer sur le Net les copies illégales. Graver irrémédiablement son droit d’auteur dans la blockchain “Grâce à notre plateforme, vendre une oeuvre digitale est désormais aussi facile et aussi sécurisé que vendre une oeuvre physique”, se félicite Ascribe, la startup pionnière.

The Telharmonium Was the Spotify of 1906. Detail from the cover of Scientific American's March 9, 1907 issue, which had a glowing article about the telharmonium. (Image: archive.org) It's a tumultuous time for streaming music services. One of the year's biggest albums, Adele's 25, was released on November 20, but not made available on Apple Music, Spotify, or any other streaming app by the artist's own decision. On November 23, music service Rdio, the first smartphone-era music streaming service to try to crack the U.S. market, began winding down after five years of struggling to attract paying subscribers.

Rdio, however, was not the first service to allow American subscribers to stream music from their phones. That honor goes to the telharmonium, the first patent for which was granted in 1897. Invented by lawyer Thaddeus Cahill and initially known as the dynamophone, the telharmonium made use of telephone networks to transmit music from a central hub in midtown Manhattan to restaurants, hotels, and homes around the city. 5 Incredible Musicians You've Never Heard of Who Made Their Mark Behind the Scenes. Image via Wikimedia Commons It’s easy for musicians to get caught up in the game of, "Who’s going to be the leader of this band? " Most musicians not just want, but need their names at the top of the bill, their last name in the songwriting credits, and their guitar solo during the breakdown. It’s pretty rare to hear any musicians say, "Oh, it’s cool, I don’t really want to be the leader, and I’ll do whatever you guys say is best.

" But some musicians are more than happy to make important contributions behind the scenes, even without being an "official" member of the band. 1. As the house drummer for the legendary Stax Records house band Booker T & the MGs, Al Jackson, Jr.’s rock-solid yet laid-back drumming propelled some of the funkiest and most soulful hits the label ever produced. 2.

On Friday, October 30, 2015, I did a live concert for somewhere between 24,000-30,000 elementary school students. Audience members hailed from all 50 United States, 8 Canadian provinces and territories, and several other countries. I was in my basement. The event was called “The Largest Online Gathering of K-5 Classrooms (ever!) ,” and I dreamed it up myself. I thought it would be really fun to see how many schools I could bring together online, in real time, for a shared musical experience. It would also be great promotion for my arts-in-education work, I figured. In today’s Educate and Entertain post, we’re going to “pull back the covers” a bit on this event, looking at things like: how and why anyone would do such a thinghow it wentmost importantly, how all of us as performing artists can be reaching new audiences via live streaming technology Broadcasting your own performances to remote locations isn’t as complicated as you might think, and the results can be pretty powerful.

The Great Part. Writing Out of This World Science Fiction: Really Useful Links by Paul Anthony Shortt. Writing Out of This World Science Fiction: Really Useful Links by Paul Anthony Shortt Science fiction is a fairly broad genre, with countless sub-genres to be explored. By and large, however, it deals with basic questions about humanity. Where have we come from? Where are we going? It shows our greatest fears and most desired hopes for the future. It can be used to escape, or to expose harsh truths about the world and about our own failings as human beings. It is also one of the most challenging genres in which to write. 1: 3 Golden Rules – We start off with Standout Books giving us their 3 golden rules for all science fiction books. 2: 3 Things Every Good Sci-Fi Story Needs – Sticking with Standout Books for our second link, here they go into a broad checklist of elements that help give a science fiction story the weight and depth it needs to stand out. 4: Free Sci-Fi Writing Course – Writesf.com offers a completely free online course in writing science fiction.

Imagine having a place online to write your thoughts, tips, and learnings and share with a built-in audience and an immediate potential for viral traffic. Imagine a really great writing app. This is Medium, a blogging platform from the creator of Blogger and Twitter. It’s slick and snappy and could very well be worth a deeper look for digital marketers and first-time bloggers. We’ve enjoyed experimenting with the best way to use Medium here at Buffer, and we’re eager to learn more about what the best practices might be for helping the Medium community and engaging with an audience. The Complete Beginner’s Guide to Medium What is Medium? Medium is a place to write. One discussion that comes up often about Medium is whether it strives to be a platform or a publisher, i.e. a place for others to share what they think (like Twitter) or a place for Medium to share what it thinks (like BuzzFeed).

The answer isn’t all that important for marketers. 1. 2. French VIP : Editeurs indés & Créateurs, épisode 1 : à la rencontre de Roy Music. Amiga 500 Emulator: A Portable Native Client demo. Giving the C64 A WiFi Modem. If there’s any indication of the Commodore 64’s longevity, it’s the number of peripherals and add-ons that are still being designed and built. Right now, you can add an SD card to a C64, a technology that was introduced sixteen years after the release of the Commodore 64.

Thanks to [Leif Bloomquist], you can also add WiFi to the most cherished of the home computers. [Leif]’s WiFi modem for the C64 is made of two major components. The first is a Microview OLED display that allows the user to add SSIDs, passwords, and configure the network over USB. The second large module is the a Roving Networks ‘WiFly’ adapter. It’s a WiFi adapter that uses the familiar Xbee pinout, making this not just a WiFi adapter for the C64, but an adapter for just about every wireless networking protocol out there.

[Leif] introduced this WiFi modem for the C64 at the World of Commodore earlier this month in Toronto. La musique est un business - Rock ! The Music Business. Credit : epSos.de Certains artistes refusent de reconnaitre le fait que la musique n’est pas qu’un art mais aussi un business. Pour gagner sa vie en tant qu’artiste, il est pourtant nécessaire de comprendre que derrière la musique se cache une vaste industrie, un business comme un autre. musique business L’importance du profit Si vous souhaitez devenir un artiste professionnel, et donc gagner votre vie uniquement via votre musique, il est nécessaire de comprendre que le profit est au cœur de la plupart des discussions, comme dans beaucoup d’autres industries.

+Ainsi, un manager acceptera de prendre en charge votre carrière si vous avez le potentiel de générer un profit. +Vous pourrez signer un contrat avec un label de musique si vous avez le potentiel de générer suffisamment d’argent. +Et, plus généralement, vous pourrez survivre en tant qu’artiste seulement si vous générez un profit. L’artiste en tant qu’entrepreneur Un artiste doit comprendre l’industrie de la musique En effet : What Comes After SoundCloud? Music Streaming in 2016. I’m bored of handing control of my work to centralized platforms that have no interest in representing the community of artists I identify with. An independent music industry was built by artists for artists decades ago, and I think that we need to devise an equivalent infrastructure for online media. That doesn’t mean SoundCloud with a different name and font, but an entirely different logic that is as nuanced and distinguished as the independent communities that use it.

The decentralized web is happening, and I think it represents a major opportunity to construct a viable and more compelling alternative to the streaming warehouses. I think it’s painfully dull to think of the future of music as being new and shiny ways to listen to an album online as you may have done with a CD in the ’90s, and am more interested in acknowledging the narrative ways we engage with artworks online, and modifying our interactions and expectations to play with that.

Listerine ‘feel every smile’ by J Walter Thompson Facial expressions are a key part of communication but something blind people can miss out on. In collaboration with Listerine and the Royal National Institute of Blind People, JWT created an app that uses facial-recognition technology to detect a smile up to five metres away.

The user is notified of a smile when their mobile device vibrates. 2. Turkcell ‘healthmeter’ by R/GA London R/GA and the Turkish mobile operator Turkcell devised an app to help people recently diagnosed with diabetes make the necessary changes to their lives. 3.

Not content with entertaining people with its latest Christmas TV spot, John Lewis wanted to educate them too. 7. 8. Une nouvelle presse à vinyle lancée sur le marché pour la première fois en 30 ans - Plasturgie. Alors que les ventes de vinyles explosent, les usines de pressage doivent se contenter de machines vieilles de trente ans ou plus.

La jeune entreprise Newbilt Machinery provoque une petite révolution avec sa nouvelle presse. Les mélomanes peuvent remercier l’industrie allemande, et plus particulièrement la start-up Newbilt Machinery. Cette dernière lance une nouvelle presse à vinyle. Aucune nouvelle machine n’avait été introduite sur le marché depuis trente ans. Le label Third Man Record du chanteur américain Jack White en sera l’un des premiers bénéficiaires. Les presses Newbilt ressemblent aux presses traditionnelles, à quelques détails près. L’industrie du vinyle est en pleine croissance, en particulier aux Etats-Unis, mais la vétusté des machines ralentit la production, crée des engorgements, et donc des retards de livraison.

Last winter I found myself accidentally listening with greater and greater fascination to a conversation on the couch behind me at NeueHouse in New York.

Finally I had to turn around and ask as Braulio Flores as gracefully as I could “what are you talking about?” He answered “Looplabs”, which happens to be the name of an organization where he serves as Director of Creative/Strategic Partnerships. He described Looplabs as the ‘Google Docs’ of music — a free, collaborative cloud based music studio that would let anyone, regardless of technical skills or ability, easily make, share and discover music anywhere, anytime and with anyone – all from their web browser — including the kids at Niños de Cristo Orphanage in the Dominican Republic above, who made music with Swann and Zayas using Looplabs.
