Last Spring Absolut Vodka devoted a small part of it's global budget to film a mini documentary about Southern Hip-Hop phenomenon Cee Lo Green. The result is a two-part short, Cee Lo Distilled, that captures the life and times of the talented musician as he travels, performs, and candidly explains the inspiration behind his creativity. And trust us when we say, the man has quotes for days! Fans of real music are going to really dig this one! We promise.

Roger Pedersen: Truly a remarkable musician
2011-03-09 21:29:00
By the power of google translate: ROGER PEDERSEN - "Kernels in a Popcorn Machine" Some titles succeed with pleasant associations, in this case the smell and sound of the popcorn machine. The Norwegian guitarist took the decision on a solo album after the highly favorable comments written about him in a US magazine specialized in content for guitarists. He demonstrates impressive playing/technique. The sound is slightly distorted - which easily separates / differentiates him- from many others. The material could be described as a fusion that can be heard as very comfortable and for those who have progressive tastes, but the album has an immediacy that makes it meaningful. Still, that is, if they do not realize the impressive technical details, you will still enjoy listening to the disc characteristic that may be expressed effortlessly. Of the fourteen tracks two have vocals that are pretty good, but do not alter the overall ...

Tom Hess: How to Become a Professional Guitarist & Musician ~ Facts and Myt
2010-03-31 23:07:00
How to Become a Professional Guitarist & Musician ~ Facts and Myths - Part 1by Tom Hess?What does it take to become a professional guitar player and musician?? The answer remains a huge mystery for the vast majority of musicians. Traditionally, conventional wisdom has offered three separate statements that are supposed to be answers or ex-planations to the question. I choose to call them what they are...MYTHS! Here they are starting from the most common myth:MYTH number 1: If all musicians knew how to do it [become professional musicians] then everyone would be doing it.MYTH number 2: Musicians have to get lucky, get discovered, and to do that they need to be in the right place at the right time.MYTH number 3: Musicians have to be talented and have key music industry contacts with important people in the music industry.Like most guitar players of my generation, my friends and I (back when we were in high school) believed each one of these so-cal...

Paul Tauterouff: the year of living as a professional musician
2010-02-06 09:36:00
A very interesting piece written by Paul Tauterouff: Reflecting on 2009 - My First Year as Full Time Musician I am sitting here listening to some great music and looking back at 2009. Last year was my first full year of self employment with 100% of my income coming from music related sources. I was unceremoniously laid off from my day job in November 2008, but fortunately I already had things in place and was planning to leave that December. Things may have been a little tight here and there (due to me not really pushing for growth like I should have) but overall it was a good year. Keep in mind that I have a wife, child, mortgage, car payments and all of the expenses that most families have. I made more money on my own than I ever did in my old day job while working a whole lot less hours (which I chose). I started my day whenever I woke up (typically no earlier than 9AM ), since I no longer have an alarm clock in the bedroom. I saw more concerts and bought more CD's last year...

A Musician Who Performs With a Scalpel
2008-05-24 00:00:00
In a fascinating article from the NY Times comes this new research: For Claudius Conrad, a 30-year-old surgeon who has played the piano seriously since he was 5, music and medicine are entwined -- from the academic realm down to the level of the fine-fingered dexterity required at the piano bench and the operating table. "If I don't play for a couple of days," said Dr. Conrad, a third-year surgical resident at Harvard Medical School who also holds doctorates in stem cell biology and music philosophy, "I cannot feel things as well in surgery. My hands are not as tender with the tissue. They are not as sensitive to the feedback that the tissue gives you." Like many surgeons, Dr. Conrad says he works better when he listens to music. And he cites studies, including some of his own, showing that music is helpful to patients as well -- bringing relaxation and reducing blood pressure, heart rate, stress hormones, pain and the need for pain medication. Music Soothes the Savage Beast, ...

Musician Peter Gabriel Shows Us The Need For Full Disk Encryption
2008-05-09 05:21:00
Peter Gabriel shows, albeit indirectly and unwittingly, why one needs full disk encryption if data security is the ultimate objective.  Gabriel?s servers that powered his website?hosted at a data center?were stolen.  This affects more than a website with a litany of Gabriel?s accomplishments.  I?ve never been to the site before, and it?s not operating at 100%, obviously, but a look at the temporary stand?in makes it apparent the stolen servers were at the center for getting all things Gabriel?related, including the sale of music and concert tickets.   Break-ins into data centers are nothing new.  I?ve heard the entire gamut, from people strolling in while waving at the guard (and the guard waving back, which is why I dropped the word ?security? from ?security guard?) to using chainsaws and going through the walls, literally.  Break?ins of any kind are not common when it comes to data centers, especially if the facility was built with security in mind?RF...
