High-Energy Classical Music?

Filed under: General — jmeschi @ 9:03 pm

No, classical music isn’t always soft! And no, classical music isn’t always slow.

Listen to this mix of some of Beethoven’s music and see for yourself. ;-)

An Amazing Pianist

Filed under: General — jmeschi @ 3:54 pm

David Holzman, a member of our Post music faculty, recently released the follow-up to his Grammy nominated CD Stefan Wolpe - Compositions for Piano (1920-1952).

The new CD again focuses on the music of Stefan Wolpe - Music of Stefan Wolpe, Vol. 6

This video on YouTube gives us an idea of the art, the craft AND the stress of the recording process.

Bravo David! A true artist who lives his art!

Creating Music in the Cloud

Filed under: General, Tech in Music Ed, Sp11 — jmeschi @ 4:33 am

A good example of what is coming as we move more applications into the cloud - Burnstudios Audiotool. Look for the Launch App button in the top right hand corner.

The app requires Flash so it won’t run on an IPad :-(

Use Google Docs for Collaborative School Note-Taking

This idea takes study groups to another level. I wish we could have done it when I was in school.

After Class » Not Hearing Stereo in Your Headphones in the Lab?

Filed under: General — jmeschi @ 5:44 am

If you are not hearing both left and right channels in your headphones in the Tech Lab, check if the Split button is pressed in on the headphone controller box.

If this button is pressed in, only one channel will be sent to both sides of your headphones.

Always make sure the Split button is in the out position whenever wearing headphones on a workstation in the lab.

Boy, technology can be so worthwhile…

Can’t believe that this is actually on the Web.

I’ve known about the piece for years. Actually saw a performance live at a memorial for the composer when he died in the early 90s.

Now, it’s on the Web… in YouTube color.
