Valis. Pod Tune (2014)

Valis. Pod Tune (2014)

PRESS RELEASE For Immediate Release 11/17/14

POD TUNE Whale/Human Collaborative Music Album to be Released on "Blue Friday" 11/28/14 to Raise Funds in Support of Ocean Health and Vitality.
POD TUNE Volume: Ambient is a unique collection of 14 original songs composed by musicians originating from nine different countries across the globe. Each artist was tasked with creating an original track utilizing actual humpback whale recordings as instruments or singers.
The musicians hail from the United States, Canada, England, Denmark, Latvia, China, Taiwan and Japan.
Each song is classified as ambient while retaining a wholly distinct character within the genre. Some composers relied on elaborate digital processing, others used traditional ethnic instruments, or utilized only a single human voice. The whalesong catalogue was collected from around the globe during the last 50 years by various whale researchers..
Artists participating include: William Basinski, Michael Jorgensen (Wilco), Scott Morgan (loscil), Christina Vantzou, Jacob Kirkergaard and Sugizo. Full bio's for all participants are available AT: podtune.com/humans
Whale songs were supplied by: David Rothenberg, Kent Noonan, Macaulay Library and Paul Knapp. More information is available at: podtune.com/whales
Three producers collaborated to create POD TUNE.
Jessica Gardiner (Producer): "Our aim is to bring whales into people’s lives in an accessible and positive way. We seek to strengthen our connection to the whales in the hopes that more people will choose to take better care of our oceans and all of the life that lives there. We also intend to support the efforts of organizations on a similar mission. Finally—and perhaps most importantly—we wanted to make something beautiful, daring and fun."
Rob Ganger (Producer): "Our goal was to create an artist/whale communion that listeners can feel when hearing the music. If we're going to solve some of the massive environmental issues we face, we've got to create experiences of reverence for nature and all of the species that live here. A sense of wonder and awe can go a long way."
Harold Linde (Producer): “In an era when we are sending private rockets to the International Space Station, landing probes on passing comets, and attempting to colonize Mars, POD TUNE serves as a gentle reminder that within Earth's vast and unexplored oceans, there live enormously intelligent beings who are just waiting for us to listen.”
The release on November 28 coincides with “Black Friday”—which POD TUNE seeks to reclaim as “Blue Friday” to honor the undersea world.
"Giving the gift of music, wild healthy oceans and waterways, and a blue mind to those we love, is so much better than stressfully shopping for stuff, isn't it?" asks marine biologist, Founder of the Blue Mind Project, and POD TUNE collaborator, Dr. Wallace J. Nichols.
Net proceeds from the sale of the album will be going to whale and ocean championing organizations—including the Blue Mind Project and Ocean Alliance.

In memoriam Valda Kalniņa, JVLMA profesore.

Gaišs un progresīvs prāts, sava laika brīvdomātāja,
kas neliedza savus spēkus un laiku daudzu talantu būtiskai attīstībai.
Man bija tas īpašs gods apgūt pie viņas klavierspēli un mūzikas psiholoģiju.

Valdas Kalniņas principialitāte, pāri visam - mūzikas būtības izjūta, cilvēka personības saskatīšana un mūsu ilgstošās sarunas par dzīvi un mākslu pie manis būs joprojām,

vienmēr.

Chorknaben Uetersen. Kreis Pinneberg (Elmshorn), Germany. Anna-Maria Hefele (overtone singing). Hans-Joachim Lustig, conductor.
https://www.hamburg-magazin.de/veranstaltungen/artikel/detail/odi-et-amo-20-welturauffuehrung.html
Das Crossover-Projekt Odi et amo 2.0 lebt von Dualitäten und Gegensätzen. In enger Zusammenarbeit mit dem lettischen Komponisten Ugis Praulins bringen die Chorknaben Uetersen das Oratorium für Chor und Rockband mit ihrer Neuauflage in das 21. Jahrhundert. Ursprünglich entstand Odi et amo Ende der Neunziger Jahre und vermischte damals bereits klassische Knabenchorklänge mit modernen Sounds der Pop- und Rockwelt. Was zu der Zeit aber modern war, würde heute als Popmusik der Neunziger Jahre identifiziert. Daher wurde das Werk nun überarbeitet, um neue Sätze erweitert und durch zahlreiche Musiker aus Klassik und Popularmusik ergänzt. Mit dabei sind u.a. Anna Maria Hefele (Obertongesang). Stefan Kuchel (Saxophon und EWI) und Indra Tedjasukmana (Beatboxing).
Musikalisch lag für den Grammy-nominierten Komponisten Ugis Praulins die Vermischung von Klassik und Popularmusik schon durch seine Biografie nahe. Unter anderem studierte Praulins klassische Komposition, war Keyboarder der Progressive-Rock-Band Salve und nahm Alben mit lettischer Volksmusik auf. Nach über zehn Jahren Zusammenarbeit mit den Chorknaben Uetersen ist mit Odi et amo 2.0 nun ein einmaliges Großprojekt entstanden. Ermöglicht wurde die Produktion der CD, die im Herbst 2018 erschien und kurz darauf für den Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik im Bereich Rock nominiert wurde, durch eine vielbeachtete Crowdfunding Kampagne. Mit über 20.000,- Euro zählt diese zu den bis dato erfolgreichsten Kampagnen der deutschen Chorszene.
