Trans Audio Group Presents Audio Underground
Experience The Studio Environment with Top-of-the-line Audio Equipment

Mark Hornsby Sessions

A new traveling high-end audio showcase will kick off in NYC this week.
The Audio Underground Roadshow will take over the SAE facilities in Herald Square on Saturday, February 25 to show off a range of boutique audio equipment including A-Designs, ATC, Bock, Chameleon Labs, Crane Song, Daking, Drawmer and Tube-Tech. Hosted by high-end audio distributor, TransAudio Group, the Audio Underground Roadshow will provide a rare opportunity to experience top-of-the-line outboard processing and monitoring in a studio environment via DAW-based, real-world demonstrations.

In a day-long program themed “Analog Audio in a Digital World”, the Audio Underground Roadshow will include a schedule of “main stage” demonstration sessions, as well as ongoing side-show demos of products from the above-mentioned manufacturers. In the first leg of the program, Producer/Engineer Mark Hornsby will engineer a tracking session, demonstrating choice microphones and mic pre’s. From 3-4PM, Brooklyn-based producer/engineer Allen Farmelo (The Cinematic Orchestra, Talk Normal) will give a talk on “Analog Commitment in the Age of Undo“, in which he discusses not only the sonic and financial benefits of using analog equipment, but the psychological benefits of creative commitment during record production that an analog approach can help to foster.” In the afternoon session, Hornsby will talk processing and demonstrate using select outboard and monitoring options in the digital domain. Additionally, for a closer look/listen/discussion, the featured inventors and their gear will be on hand throughout the day in the other studios at SAE. This includes:

- A-Designs Jon Erickson, demoing the EM EQ2 EQ and Nail Compressor
- Bock Audio‘s David Bock demoing the 195, 241 and 507 high-end microphones
- Chameleon Labs‘ Jesse Anderson demoing the new 500-series preamp
- Geoff Daking demoing the new Daking Audio 500-series mic pre and compressor.

The demos and sessions will end by 6:30PM and the Alto Music-sponsored after-party will begin! The Audio Underground will be a great chance to mix and mingle with colleagues and new friends, talk tech with gear designers and engineers, and meet the inventors behind some of the analog hardware you’ll be hearing in action.

Paul McCartney
Kisses on the Bottom
Concord Records

Toast of the city of the Angels, Sir Paul received the prestigeous MusicCares person of the year Award and performed a song from his just-released album during 54th Grammy telecast and led a rousing closing act with Dave Grohl, Bruce Springsteen and Joe Walsh. The new album's title, Kisses on the Bottom, comes from lead track I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter, originally a hit for Fats Waller in 1935. Sir Paul's 15th solo LP – his first for almost five years – offers 12 cover versions of songs he grew up listening to in Liverpool, such as Bye Bye Blackbird and It's Only a Paper Moon, which perhaps his father would play on the piano. You can spot the familiar sounds with Diana Krall on piano, Karriem Riggins on drums and Jonny Mandel strings arrangements. Produced by Tommy LiPuma and recorded and mixed by legendary recording engineer Al Schmitt, the tracks glide with musicality and often spare and lush ease. McCartney's two originals - "My Valentine" (written
for his new wife), featuring Eric Clapton, and "Only Our Hearts," featuring Stevie Wonder on harmonica was released just a week before Valentines' Day! This song will become a classic. Like "Yesterday" you can hear Paul vocally. For most of the album, you hardly recognize voice of the beloved Beatle. Perhaps because during the recording of this album, Paul, for the first time ever, performed exclusively in the vocal booth without an instrument - no guitar, no bass, no piano - which led to a vocal performance like no other in his career.
This Paul sounds more carefree. McCartney (turning 70 this year), with John Lennon, guitarist George Harrison and drummer Ringo Starr, the Beatles changed the face of popular music forever. On this album, Sir Paul is not making any attempts to change anything. He's enjoying a well deserved and long career as he should. "It was important for me to keep away from the more obvious song choices so, many of the classic standards will be unfamiliar to some people.
I hope they are in for a pleasant surprise." The album was recorded at the legendary Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, New York and London throughout 2011.

John Rodd at The Bridge Studios

John Rodd mixed and mastered Gordy Haab's awesome live orchestral score for STAR WARS: Kinect with the 89 piece London Symphony Orchestra and the London Voices choir recorded at Abbey Road Studios. The Xbox 360 game will be released April 3, 2012 by LucasArts. Rodd is featured speaker at GDC 2012 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco on Friday, March 9th at 11:30 am. "My hour-long lecture, "Tips and Tricks of Game Music Mastering for Composers and Audio Leads," will dive deep into my work on STAR WARS: Kinect and discuss key mastering techniques for getting the best results regardless of budget," says John

Late in 2011, Universal Mastering Studios' production/mastering engineer Warren Sokol was approached with a daunting project. The assignment required specific mastering for AAC and MP3 files of multiple albums for a major computer company. Had they signed on for a 'traditional' job they estimated it would take 9 to 10 hours for each album. Sokol, however, had been looking for an opportunity to work with the recently introduced Sonnox Fraunhofer Pro-Codec. He felt this was a textbook example of the right tool for the right job. "We turned this entire 'Adaptive Mastering' project around in under 4 hours, for each of the individual CDs," he says. "The Pro-Codec enables us to simultaneously audition up to five codecs in real time within a DAW environment, and to produce an optimized mix and batch encode to multiple formats. It supports all major codecs, including MP3, MP3 Surround, AAC-LC, HE-AAC and lossless codecs like MP3 HD and HD-AAC."

McCartney and Concord Music Group reached a deal to reissue Macca's solo and Wings catalog in a move that severs his relationship from his longtime label of nearly 50 years, EMI. McCartney and Concord had previously teamed up for the 2007 Starbucks exclusive release of Memory Almost Full as well as the live album Good Evening New York City.

Expresso Walk And Talk with...

I'm Casey and Just Got Signed! American Idol's Casey Abrams posted this tongue and cheek tune on YouTube when he got signed to Concord Music Group in January. The season 10 finalist, who was famously saved during week five of the competition (and eventually eliminated on April 28) was a fan favorite from the start thanks in large part to his unexpected song choices (Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," Ella Fitzgerald's "Lullaby of Birdland") and bubbly personality. Congrats Casey! X Factor USA finalist Rachel Crow has completed a deal that will put her on the same label as Beyonce, Adele and Celine Dion. Crow has signed with Sony Music-owned Columbia Records. Her CD is expected to be released in partnership with Simon Cowell's company, Syco. Maybe Eminem can rap on it?" she says. Nickelodeon has signed the fourteen year-old sensation Crow to an overall talent deal, it was announced by Paula Kaplan, Executive Vice President, Talent Strategy and West Coast Operations. As part of the new pact, Nickelodeon is developing a comedy series for Crow.

The Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing kicked off GRAMMY Week with its fifth annual event, this year honoring music producer, entrepreneur and chair of Interscope Geffen A&M Records Jimmy Iovine (Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, U2, Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers) with a Presidents Merit Award on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2012. Standing in the front row stage left was Dr. Dre while at stage right was Stevie Nicks. Jimmy Jam, Recording Academy president and CEO Neil Portnow and P&E Wing' Maureen Droney also participated in the presentation to Iovine. VIP guest included The Black Eyed Peas' Will.i.Am (left) and "American Idol" Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe. Universal Music Group CEO Zach Horowitz, Mary J. Blige, Universal Music Group Chairman/CEO Lucian Grainge. Iovine pledged support to P. Diddy, noting "we're bringing back Bad Boy in a big way." Iovine's career spans the breadth of the music industry, from his roles as an engineer, producer, and co-founder of Interscope Records, to his current position as chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records and his founding of Beats Electronics with Dr. Dre.

Acoustic performances included singer/songwriter Skylar Grey above (I need a Doctor, Invisible, Coming Home) and Lana Del Rey (below right) sang her song, Video games from her album Born to Die.
Throughout all of these endeavors Iovine has continued to be an outspoken evangelist for high quality audio. He is recognized for his commitment to excellence in audio and ongoing support for the art and craft of recorded music. The event was held at Village Studios in West Los Angeles during GRAMMY Week that culminated with the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards on Sunday, Feb. 12th. Producers & Engineers Wing Senior Executive Director Maureen Droney said, "The evening was a huge success, and once again we must offer a sincere thank you to all of our sponsors who included: The Village Studios, West L.A. Music and Westlake Professional Sales. Co-sponsors included Harman International brands AKG Acoustics, JBL, and Lexicon; Iron Mountain; Avid; Musician's Institute; Music Marketing; Shure Incorporated; Beats Electronics; Ultimate Ears; Focusrite Novation; Prism Media Products; Apogee Electronics Corporation; Full Sail University; Guitar Center Professional (GC Pro); Lurssen Mastering; Sennheiser Electronic Corporation; SoundExchange.

Iovine talked about learning to see "The Big Picture" from Springsteen manager, Jon Landau who said to a young and frustrated engineer, Iovine: "You go into that studio and say to Bruce Springsteen, 'I'm here to support you' and everything will be all right." Iovine followed his advice and few weeks later Springsteen returned the favor with a Patti Smith top 20 hit, "Because the Night."
He singled out many people (Roy Cicala, Doug Morris, the late studio owner Eddie Germano and artists such as Mary J. Blige and Tom Petty) to honor with a personal note of thanks, including Stevie Nicks (whom he praised for her unique vocal style) and Elliot Scheiner the first producer Iovine ever worked with and whom he credits for giving him the studio bug ("He wore boots and a leather jacket with a matching leather bag, and at the end of the night he went home with a beautiful woman and I said, 'That's what I want!"

Spotify founder, Daniel Ek was the keynote at the Grammy Foundation's 14th annual Entertainment Law Initiative Luncheon and Scholarship Presentation at the Beverly Hilton. He explained his company's history and anticipation about its growth. Honoree John Branca (the 60-year-old Branca could pass for a rock 'n' roller himself), spoke to a room that included his firm's lawyers, past honorees Joel Katz and Jay Cooper, and Kobalt's Willard Ahdritz, focused on being driven by passion for music. A fan of Elvis Presley, the Doors, the Rolling Stones, Berry Gordy and the Beach Boys, he related two stories that greatly affected his career. The first came when he was a second-year lawyer and had to help the Beach Boys decide whether to retain Steve Love as their manager. Mike Love and Al Jardine were pro; Carl and Dennis Wilson were against. Brian Wilson was asked to cast the deciding vote, but was "deep in slumber with his head down on a conference table," Branca said. He improvised, asking Brian to knock once to keep Love, two to fire him. "Lo and behold, Brian knocked three times." It became Branca's job to get Love to resign. Second, when Branca first became Michael Jackson's lawyer, the singer called with a request that was of utmost urgency. "I got ready ­ had my pen out and notebook out," Branca related. Jackson's request? He needed his pinball machine fixed. Branca who now takes care of the Jackson estate, said in his opening remarks that though many think of entertainment law is extinct and belongs to La Brea Tar Pits, the aging entertainers are making estate planning a new and growing area for attorneys. It was told in an interview that Branca didn't know whether Jackson had revised his 2002 will, which named Branca, along with long-time music producer John McClain, as coexecutors of Jackson's estate. Over the years, Branca has also been busily helping clients acquire and sell music catalogs. He handled the sale of Berry Gordy Jr.'s Jobete Music to EMI, and Sony/ATV Music's acquisition of the Leiber Stoller catalog, which included songs made famous by Elvis Presley ("Jailhouse Rock" and "Hound Dog"), the Drifters ("On Broadway"), the Clovers ("Love Potion No. 9"), and the Coasters ("Yakety Yak" and "Charlie Brown"). More recently, he worked for one of the final bidders (Sony/ATV and another company) for the Warner Music Group, which was sold in May for $3.3 billion to Access Industries. In June he was reviewing deal terms for the sale of EMI, the world's fourth largest music company and the record label for Katy Perry, the Beatles, and Pink Floyd. A generation earlier, it was a client of Branca who made headlines with one of the most famous and controversial music deals of all time: Michael Jackson's acquisition of the publishing rights to ATV Music, which included some 250 Beatles songs, including "Yesterday," "Help!" and "Let It Be." When the deal came down, there was some public grumbling from Paul McCartney, but the artist never seriously bid for the catalog, and later he and Jackson remained friends. John Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono, who also didn't bid, remarked that she was happy the rights now belonged to Jackson, a fellow songwriter. Branca and McClain further transformed Jackson's estate's fortunes by refinancing costly debts and putting together deals to open Jackson-themed Cirque du Soleil shows (one in Las Vegas and another traveling version); launch an interactive museum and a Michael Jackson-themed lounge at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas; create a best-selling dance game for Ubisoft Entertainment; release ten albums of both old and unreleased music in the coming years; and ramp up Jackson's profile on Facebook. The result: In the 15 months after Jackson's death, the estate generated $310 million in revenue. By comparison, the Elvis Presley estate, previously considered the "gold standard" in the entertainment business, earned profits of about $25 million over the same period. "If I do nothing else in my career except having done this for the Jackson estate, I can say I did a great fucking job," Branca crows.

Song and Performance Big Winners at 54th Annual Grammy Awards

l-r: The big winners Adele and Dave Grohl with producers Paul Epworth and Butch Vig photos: by the C

Just this week, an audience of 6.2 million watched the British Music Awards where Bruno Mars took the international male solo artist award and Coldplay took home the British band title. Adele, the 23-year-old British soul phenom who swept all six categories she was nominated for at the 54th Grammy Awards, including album of the year for her sophomore smash “21”, however, flipped the bird after her acceptance speech for collecting the British album of the year award was cut short by host, British comedian and actor James Corden. At the Grammys, the show started on a somber note with the news of Whitney Houston's death. Host LL Cool J handled it with much care siting a short prayer at the start of the show.
Most agree, this was a big year for song and performance. There were fewer pyrotechnics (minus Nicki Minaj's staging) and the big winners Adele (in her first live performance since undergoing vocal cord surgery last fall) and BonIver prooved that you can wow and capture audiences sans trendy looks, costumes and dance routines. BonIvar took home the award for Best New Artist and Best Alternative Music Album, Justin Vernon handled his winnings with grace. Speaking of grace, Adele recognized producer and song doctor, Paul Epworth (Florence and the Machine, Cee Lo Green, Foster the People). Epworth is the little-noticed co-author of three of the songs on the album and the producer of two. Ryan Tedder, who shared in Adele's album of the year prize as a producer, performed later at an industry party with his band, One Republic. During the set, he saluted Houston and Jennifer Hudson, who paid tribute to the late pop star during the Grammy telecast with a rendition of "I Will Always Love You."
Adele's "21" album beat Van Halen's new "A Different Kind of Truth" for the No. 1 slot on the Billboard 200 chart, following her Grammy win.

According to Bluefin Labs, the Grammys earned 13 million social comments. That breaks the record from the previous week's Super Bowl.This year's telecast of Feb. 12 on CBS featured 18 production pieces with about 22 songs performed by some of music's brightest stars. CBS once again delivered with 1,080 lines of picture resolution and the latest in HDTV and 5.1 technology. "Arguably it's one of the biggest shows" in the history of the Grammys, producer of the show, Ken Ehrlich said in an interview. His calling card: Pairing of stars performing together not seen before. Glen Campbell with the Band Perry, Coldplay with Rihanna (Rihanna and Kanye West picked up two Grammy Awards for the All of The Lights , Best Rap Song and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration), Foo Fighters (took five Grammy awards, including Best Rock Album) with Deadmau5, inside a tent near LA Live outside the Staple Center. Foo Fighters joined David Guetta, Chris Brown and Lil Wayne for a special performance, marking the first-time ever electronic music spotlighted on the show.

studioexpresso went behind the scenes to meet some of the men and women responsible for the technical side of things.The GRAMMY Awards' technical staff consists of audio pioneers who continually strive to employ the best. The Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing members Phil Ramone and Hank Neuberger again supervised the broadcast audio, while fellow P&E Wing member Leslie Ann Jones (Skywalker Sound) supervised the house audio utilizing the latest in technology to provide television viewers worldwide with a cutting-edge, high-definition/5.1 surround sound event.
The broadcast music mix was handled by John Harris and Eric Schilling. ATK/Audiotek provided the sound system with FOH (front-of-house) Engineers Ron Reaves and Mikael Stewart. A New Jersey/California-based remote facilities company, Music Mix Mobile (M3), combining the talents of award-winning production professionals and state-of-the-art audio solutions, is a collective consisting of industry veterans John Harris, Jay Vicari, Joel Singer, Mitch Maketansky and West Coast-based partners Bob Wartinbee and Mark Linett. Small Changes, Big Difference. Engineers in the two M3 remote trucks made the switch to the WLM (www.waves.com Loudness Meter plugin. The move for the first time enabled all essential 5.1 and stereo metering to be displayed directly in line-of-sight with the broadcast monitor screen, providing the music mixer with visual feedback at a glance without having to move his head from the soundfield to look at a rack-mounted unit."We have one screen inside the truck dedicated to metering only coming off the Pro Tools mixer system. The engineer can just look up from the console and see the program in front of him on the 46-inch LED screen, he can look to his right and see all the meters, he can look at previews to his left, and he stays in the zone the entire time," says Singer. On the Springsteen part of the show, his engineer, Bob Clearmountain, asked if we could put a Waves 5.1 SSL bus compressor on the main output to give it that little pop that he wanted. We used a couple of other Waves plugs that weve always used from the SSL 4000 and V-Series collections, and the Chris Lord-Alge CLA-76 Compressor. Chris happened to visit the truck and he saw that we were using all sorts of plug-ins that were part of the signature bundle that he created with Waves.

The annual Clive Davis pre-Grammy party, in its 37th year, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel became both a crime scene and a party scene on the eve of
Houston's death in her fourth-floor suite. The founder of Arista Records and now the chief creative officer of Sony Music Entertainment said earlier: "It's her favorite night of the year..."
$6.5 Million Raised. Thank You for Caring!
2012 MusiCares Person of the Year gala honoring Paul McCartney (seated with his bride Nancy Shevell) shattered the record for the fund-raising event, generating more than $6.5 million for the Recording Academy’s division that provides medical care and other support for musicians in need. McCartney himself opened the ceremony with his own rendition of the Beatles hit "Magical Mystery Tour". Attendees who paid $1,500-2,800 enjoyed Cirque du Soleil's Beatles LOVE troupe, and McCartney perform a handful of numbers joined by notable artists --from 25-year-old pop princess Katy Perry to 85-year-old music institution Tony Bennett, the Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Alison Krauss, Duane Eddy, Alicia Keys, Norah Jones, James Taylor, Diana Krall and Sergio Mendes, to name a few. Neil Young and Crazy Horse earned a standing ovation for their loud, scrappy, guitar-driven I Saw Her Standing There. “Thank you everybody,” the 69-year-old former moptop told the audience. “That’s it — go home!” Then he added, “Thank you for coming, and thank you for caring.” The cocktail reception and silent auction, sponsored by the Starkey Hearing Foundation, that offered an exclusive selection of luxury items, VIP experiences, and one-of-a-kind celebrity memorabilia for bidding guests. The auction was followed by a gala dinner sponsored by AEG Live, and a star-studded tribute concert sponsored by Acura/ELS Surround. During the gala dinner, a live auction featured two original Baldwin baby grand pianos painted by pop art icon Peter Max- signed by Max, McCartney, and Ringo Starr - that was a gift from the artist to Starr (went for $175,000.); as well as a customized Acura TL (sold for $80,000) .This year's red-carpet press arrivals area were sponsored by Kinect for Xbox 360and Dance Central 2. Yoko Ono and George Harrison's widow, Olivia, were on hand (Ringo Starr was sick at home), along with Tom Hanks, Bonnie Raitt, Glen Campbell, Brian Wilson, Smokey Robinson, David Foster, Don Was, Jeff Lynne, David Crosby, Steven Van Zandt, Randy Jackson, Carole King, Jason Mraz and LA Reid. Emcee, comedian/actor Eddie Izzard invented a hilarious McCartney bio populated by Jacques Cousteau, Fidel Castro and Muhammad Ali, with all events occurring in 1962. Even the dinner menu at the event reflected McCartney's lifestyle and was strictly vegetarian, featuring a tomato and fresh mozzarella tower to a main course of grilled seitan, a wheat gluten used as a meat substitute, and roasted vegetables in puff pastry. The closing musical treat: Dave Grohl joined McCartney and his axe men Rusty Anderson and Brian Ray for a five-way guitar shootout.

The Sunday night soiree at the Los Angeles Convention Center offered a Carnival Celebration atmosphere. ACM and its design and lighting team turned the vast convention space, equaling the size of three football fields, and transform it into a festive Carnival theme with women in bikinis and elaborate headdresses shook their feathered skirts on stages while shirtless men practiced the Brazilian martial art capoeira, performing kicks, flips and handstands. The desert menu: Caramelized banana-chocolate bread pudding, spinning lady sundae bar, passion fruit crème tarts, palma saffron pears galette, Miami spice cheesecake, sugarcane wafers, and macadamia nut squares! We're told all leftovers were donated or recycled.

Facebook IPO Is Music To Mark's Ears -- with 845 million users who gossip, play games and swap 250 million photos per day, Facebook hopes to raise as much as $10 billion when it begins selling shares this spring (by comparison, among US companies, only Visa Inc., General Motors Co. and AT&T Wireless have held larger offerings than $10 billion). The financials show the company produced a $1 billion profit last year from $3.71 billion in revenues - 85% of those revenues from advertising, with the rest from social gaming and other fees. Facebook's founder, 27-year-old Mark Zuckerberg, is worried about how wealth and public scrutiny may change the company's culture. "Facebook was founded to connect people not be a company," says Zuckerberg who sporst 11.7 mill subscribers on facebook in a letter. Facebook is on track to be valued between $75 and $100 billion. And that's a lot of facetime for Mark! Many of the most popular music services around the world are integrated with Facebook. Share baby, share!

Get In The Front Row...Stageit! Evan Lowenstein is running a Web service called Stageit that blends concerts—sector of the industry that’s still makes money—with something like a pay-per-view meets Skype.
Here's how it goes. An artist fires up a webcam and plays live for 30 minutes in an intimate setting, ie their bedroom. The talent controls the price—usually about $5—and caps how many people can watch. Lowenstein has signed up a few bigger names, including Jackson Browne, Indigo Girls, and Jason Mraz. Stageit handles billing, ensures that there’s enough bandwidth, and includes a chat feature so fans can ask questions or request songs. There’s a “tip jar” so listeners can give more money if they want, and Stageit takes 40 percent of sales (yes, including the tips, which Lowenstein says account for nearly half of Stageit’s revenue).“You can’t pirate intimacy, and you can’t pirate an experience,” says Evan Lowenstein who along his twin brother landed a song "Crazy for This Girl" on the TV drama Dawson’s Creek over a decade ago (It peaked at No. 15 on Billboard’s Hot 100).
About 800 musicians have used the service since it launched in March. This year, as its popularity grows, Lowenstein expects some shows to top $25,000 in sales. Glen Phillips, former singer of Toad the Wet Sprocket, compares the idea with striptease sites, “but instead of clothes coming off, [viewers] get to see somebody play music.” Phillips, who has been doing weekly shows on Stageit, says he’d need millions of plays on Spotify or other streaming music services to match the $800 a week he can make from Stageit. Soon, Lowenstein plans to add channels for comedians, cooks, and athletes. In the meantime he enjoys putting Stageit to use himself, giving Dawson’s Creek fans renditions of Crazy for This Girl. A recent show netted him $600, he says, and “I have the time of my life.” High-profile backers like Napster founder Sean Parker and Jimmy Buffet are among investors. God save the tips!
It Takes A Rap Genius! The obvious trend: The mainstreaming of rap. What's a Basquiat (pronounced boss-KEY-ought)? A Neo-expressionist artist who embodied a rich African-American culture in the 1980’s? Basquiat, was an individual; Jean-Michel Basquiat. Last year, Yale University Press published The Anthology of Rap, edited by two college English professors who earnestly bestowed an air of academic legitimacy on the work of everybody from the Sugarhill Gang to Carter’s Young Money crew. Rap Genius bills itself as a “thug Wikipedia.” What did rapper Lil Wayne, aka Dwayne Mic Carter, mean by “Real Gs run in silence like lasagna” on his first single, 6 Foot 7 Foot lyrics? Rap Genius contributor “vmoney” answered. “When you pronounce ‘lasagna’ this G is silent.” “We certainly had that up before Yahoo! Answers or Cha Cha,” boasts Mahbod Moghadam, one of the site’s founders.
Yet Mahbod Moghadam and his co-creators—Tom Lehman and Ilan Zechory left high-paying corporate jobs to devote themselves full-time to rap lyric demystification. They met at Yale, rolled out the site in September 2009 from the living room of the apartment Lehman and Zechory shared in New York’s East Village. It now attracts 732,798 unique visitors monthly, according to Compete, a company that tracks website usage. While they aren’t making much money yet, they say record companies such as Universal Music Group are interested in using the site to promote their acts and digital music companies such as Spotify are considering weaving Rap Genius’s lyrical analysis into their services.
Rap Genius has encouraged users to post or interpret songs by the Canadian indie rock band Arcade Fire (Neon Bible), Elton John (Tiny Dancer), and poems by T.S. Eliot and E.E. Cummings.
Users have even put up excerpts from the Bible. “Some users say, ‘That isn’t rap!’?” says Lehman. “But other people read about how God turns someone into a pillar of salt and go, ‘Yeah, God! That’s so thug!’”

One of this year's most exciting artists who did not receive a Grammy, is the gender bending singer/songwriter LP (Laura Pergolizzi) newly signed to Warner Bros Records. Her live performance blew everyone's mind and brought the house down at the One Night Only - A Celebration of The Live Music Experience - 14th Annual Grammy Foundation Music Preservation Project CO-hosted by Sharon Osbourne and Steve Vai. Watach her in a more intimate setting at East West Studios. Think of Edith Piaf sans the little black dress. Sometimes you can hear David Bowie meets Tiny Tim. L.P.'s songwriting, singing and playing is fluid, sincere, effortless. She wrote "Cheers" for Rihanna and co-wrote "Beautiful People" performed by Christina Aguilera. She CO-wrote"Afraid To Sleep" which was performed by NBC's The Voice finalist Vicci Martinez and reached #10 on iTunes Top Singles Chart. In September 2011, LP signed a deal with Warner Bros. Records, and is currently in the studio collaborating with Billy Steinberg, PJ Bianco, Eg White, Jim Abbiss, The Matrix, Isa Summers (from Florence and the Machine), Fraser T. Smith, and others. Her Warner Bros. debut release is scheduled for the second half of 2012. The voice of popular Citigroup Accessories Ad, LP is earning points and on a climb!

Whitney Houston
August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012

She stunned the world with her talent and her untimely death at 48. Her success carried her beyond music to movies, such hits as "The Bodyguard" and "Waiting to Exhale." Whitney Houston began singing as a child at New Hope Baptist Church, where her mother, Grammy-winning gospel singer Cissy Houston, led the music program for many years. Her cousin singer Dionne Warwick also sang in its choir. 69-year-old Aretha Franklin is her godmother. A sensation from her first album, Houston was one of the world's best-selling artists from the mid-1980s to the late 1990s, turning out such hits as "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," "How Will I Know," "The Greatest Love of All" and "I Will Always Love You."
She won six Grammys and more than 400 other awards in a 25-year career. "Houston was a complete professional and moved the cast and crew to tears two months ago when she sang the gospel hymn "Her Eyes on the Sparrow" for a scene for Houston's final film project, a re-make of the 1970s release "Sparkle," said Bishop T.D. Jakes, a Texas minister and producer.
On February 9, 2012, Houston visited singers Brandy and Monica, together with Clive Davis, at their rehearsals for Davis' pre-Grammy Awards party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. That same day, she made her last public performance, when she joined Kelly Price on stage in Hollywood, CA and sang "Jesus Loves Me". On February 11, 2012, Houston was found dead in a suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, in Beverly Hills, California, submerged in the bathtub.
The invitation-only service was held at noon (1700 GMT) at the New Hope Baptist Church. Houston is survived by her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, 18, from her marriage to singer Bobby Brown. Leave a message for her family here

Don Cornelius
September 27, 1936 – February 1, 2012

The Magic Behind Soul Train. The "Soul Train" founder died early Feb. 1st after shooting himself in the head. He was 75.
Don Cornelius started "Soul Train" in 1970. An instant hit, it was one of the longest-running syndicated shows in history, introducing audiences to many top music acts and providing a never-before-seen TV platform for black culture. He made an indelible impact on American television, and music culture. "His beautiful, deep voice and measured pace always sounded warm and familiar to the millions who admired and followed his broadcasts, said Recording Academy CEO, Neil Portnow.
The first "Soul Train" dancers came from local high schools: Dorsey, Locke and Crenshaw. Their sometimes outlandish outfits were pure '70s LA streetwear. Cornelius would drop by a local park and tell the kids, "Anybody who wants to go, we'll have buses and take you to the TV studio. All you've got to do is come on the show and dance." The next Saturday they were bused to the Paramount lot and later received a chicken dinner and a Coke, Cornelius' standard payment. When the show shifted to more of a clubbing vibe, "Soul Train's" hoofers came from underground spots like Paradise 24, behind the CircusCircus disco. So it's no surprise that Cornelius' passing last week was marked by a vigil at the Paramount lot, an impromptu "Soul Train" dance line in Leimert Park and at a club in Echo Park.
Even in death, Cornelius could still pack a dance floor. Cornelius is survived by two sons, Anthony and Raymond.

In related news, Soul Train Holdings LLC, the entity created by NBA legend and entrepreneur Earvin “Magic” Johnson when he bought the Soul Train library and brand last year, has a lot of ideas. Among them are bringing a Soul Train variety show back to television, CEO Kenard Gibbs told The Associated Press. There have been discussions with writers about taking Soul Train to Broadway, Gibbs said, and also in the works are film opportunities, potential book deals and, in 2013, the first Soul Train cruise. During a memorial for Cornelius in Los Angeles, Johnson assured Cornelius’ son Tony, “The brand that your father has created will last a lifetime.”

Enter The Rude Studio. In 1971, Paul and Linda escaped London to their farm in Scotland. At the farm, Paul had a little studio put in so that he could demo, experiment and make music. That was RUDE STUDIO. Now YOU can experiment with Paul's music online at NEW RUDE STUDIO. This app has been developed with the ethos of Rude Studio in mind but is not related by content
and is not intended to be an authentic online replication. Have fun mixing some of this century's beloved songs!


In October 2009 Adele arrived at Paul Epworth’s cramped London studio for a songwriting session in ragged shape, sad and wrung out from a breakup with her boyfriend. That afternoon they composed and recorded “Rolling in the Deep,” the song that dominated the 2011 charts and became one of the biggest crossover hits of the last quarter-century.

“I’ve got this riff, this idea, that’s going round and round my head,” she said and I went, “Go on then, what is it?” And she went, [sings] “There’s a fire.” I put all the verses down as one long recording, and then we put spaces in the track to start work on a prechorus and a chorus. We wrote the core of the song — her verses and the chords — in under 15 minutes. And the rest of it was structured over two hours. "
---Paul Epworth

" It's not about sounding perfect. It's not about what goes on in the computer. It's about what goes on in here (heart) and what goes on in here (mind)."

"Consciousness expresses itself through creation. This world we live in is the dance of the creator."
--Michael Jackson

The Man Behind the Google Doodle: Happy 155th Birthday Heinrich Rudolf Hertz.
A Scottish physicist named James Maxwell tried to convince people that light, electricity, and magnetism were all versions of the same phenomenon. It was a weird idea at the time. How could the invisible power of magnets go hand-in-hand with the radiant glow of candlelight? They're obviously different to the human eye, but actually quite similar in hidden ways. Maxwell was the first to figure out that light moves like a wave, just as magnetism and electricity move through the "electromagnetic field." This was a huge breakthrough – it made sense of the invisible world in the same way that Isaac Newton and his falling apple unified the visible world. Hertz went on to prove that these waves move at the speed of light, that they can be reflected by some materials, and could pass through others. While this research eventually led to radio, radar, and broadcast TV, Hertz did not initially understand the magnitude of his discovery.
The search engine giant, Google swapped out its regular banner Wednesday for a Google doodle in honor of Hertz's 155th birthday. Here's to the invisible world and those who recognize it!
