GRAMMY-winning guitarist Will Ackerman, pianist Fiona Joy, guitarist Lawrence Blatt and flugelhornist Jeff Oster create
compelling contemporary music as FLOW.

…music that values the tapestry of sound over individual threads…they created a music of subtle shadings and slowly decanted moods…””

— John Diliberto

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, May 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — From the New Orleans Jazz Museum and the 2018 ZMR Awards – where they won Zone Music Reporter’s Album of the Year and Best Contemporary Instrumental Album – to the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, FLOW continues to create a buzz around a spirited and dynamic musical synergy worthy of its cool moniker.

The ensemble's soulful all-original, genre-transcendent vibe has been described as a fresh, international acoustic sound rooted in the classic tradition of Windham Hill, the label founded by one of the group’s members, GRAMMY®-winning guitarist Will Ackerman. If you ask the ensemble – which includes Australian pianist/singer Fiona Joy, acoustic guitarist Lawrence Blatt and trumpet and flugelhorn player Jeff Oster – they’ll simply say, “We’re just good friends making music together.”

Perfectly reflective of that warm and organic familial concept, the foursome have invited some very talented friends to join their performances along the way, from “regulars” like album co-producer Tom Eaton and Jeff Haynes, to guests Erik Scott, Kathryn Kaye, Todd Boston, Eugene Friesen, and Vin Downes. Their highly anticipated tour kicked off May 10th at The New Orleans Jazz Museum, included a performance at the 14th Annual Zone Music (ZMR) Awards at Roussel Hall in New Orleans on May 12th, continued this past Tuesday in Seattle and Thursday in Marin. It wraps with a performance at Los Angeles' famed GRAMMY® Museum tonight; remaining tickets are limited.

In his review of last weekend’s ZMR Awards, renowned music tastemaker John Diliberto, host of the acclaimed radio show Echoes (PRI), wrote, that FLOW “played a set of tunes from their debut album that revealed their subtle, intuitive interplay, music that values the tapestry of sound over individual threads…they created a music of subtle shadings and slowly decanted moods…”

The music of FLOW is graceful and atmospheric, with a rhythmic ease that found an early audience and feature stories in Billboard and Keyboard Magazine. Michael Foster, editor of Ambient Visions, described their sold-out Weill Hall debut at Carnegie Hall in October 2017 as “a gratifying aural journey to hear these four remarkable musicians set aside their ambitions or expectations about what the album should be in favor of allowing it to be formed entirely through their interactions as a group into something greater than each one would have been capable of doing on their own.”

Released last October, their self-titled debut album FLOW debuted at #4 debut on Billboard’s New Age chart, The collection has since earned a spot on several “Best of 2017” lists, followed by an IMA win for Best New Age Album, and capped off last weekend with its two Zone Music Reporter Awards. Five professional music videos and a documentary support the album.

Covering last Tuesday’s Seattle concert at The Royal Room, veteran Jazz critic Dick Metcalf noted “a truly amazing display of bardic talent in a two-hour show that had each and every listener hushed to full-quiet mode…I give FLOW a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.”

According to guitarist/producer Blatt, owner of LMB Music in San Francisco, it was his passion for jazz fusion that sparked the idea of an ensemble. "The inspiration comes from Chick Corea's classic ‘70s all-star band Return to Forever with Stanley Clarke and Al Di Meola, who joined forces, wrote music and produced a sound that was more powerful than any of their individual works,” he says. “That was the idea, bringing great musicians together with this kind of concept. When I started thinking about who it might be, my thoughts turned naturally to Jeff and Fiona. We knew pretty quickly that this was going to develop into something.”

FLOW is planning a number of performances throughout the U.S. in 2018, including another date at Carnegie Hall this September 2018; for more information, videos, social media links, and future concert dates visit www.FlowTheGroup.com.

UK Rnb Artist Chanti Releases ‘Baila’

Think sexy Latin-tinged R & B… Think aunting melodic vocal… Imagine drinking a Cuba Libre in a late-night bar in Havana Cuba…

CUSTARD FACTORY, MIDLANDS, UNITED KINGDOM, May 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Music Video: https://youtu.be/5s6FPFaZ3Xc

Think sexy Latin-tinged R & B… Think aunting melodic vocal… Imagine drinking a Cuba Libre in a late-night bar in Havana Cuba… Those are some of the things that spring to mind when you hear this new release called ‘Baila’ from a young very talented artist who goes by the name of Chanti, currently signed to the Maserati Empire Music record label.

‘Baila’ which is Spanish for ‘Dance’ is pure seduction. The red lighting in the video and sometimes deliberately out of focus shots give the viewer the feeling of the thoughts of someone who has shall we say, had a few drinks’ and is REALLY ready to party. The half -time piano and Afro-Cuban percussion are complimented well by the double-time hi-hats and a thumping, Trap-style drum pattern, that makes you want to start skanking in the heat of a tropical island after dark. The music truly compliments Chanti’s voice perfectly. The only way I can describe he flow is similar to that of aural velvet. The melodies she uses are really clever and just add to the sultry nature of the production and seek to smoother and caress it, weaving in and out of the beat as the mood takes it. She has a sound and feel reminiscent of Rhianna but with her own unique twist.

The 21-year-old Chanti hails from the tropical island of St Maarten although she later re-located to Holland as a child and now currently resides in London, UK). A songstress since the tender age of 8, she is an accomplished performer, having competed in and been nominated for a Caribbean music award back in 1994. The track in question was called ‘Let You Know’ by an artist called D. Kullus and received over 80.000 views on YouTube.

This is a no-nonsense song about lust about sexuality about playful flirting. About the awakening of a self-confident woman who knows what she wants and is not afraid to go get it.

‘Baila’ is the first video of a series of future releases, that tells a story which the viewer is left waiting with excitant for what happens in the next episode. If it starts off as good as this who knows where it’s going to end up!

(Chanti will be performing at the ‘New Skool Rules’ Festival in Rotterdam, The Netherlands on May 18th & 19th)

台湾アーティスト、カナダCMWで公演 国際エージェントがさっそく提携を画作

文化部映画・テレビ・流行音楽産業局の主催により、台湾アーティストの阿爆(アーバオ)、孔雀眼(JADE EYES)、Dizparityは北米最大規模の『カナダCMW音楽フェスティバル』に参加し

TORONTO, CANADA, May 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — 地元トロント時間5月10日、11日の二日連続でコンサートを行い、そのうち本日(11日)盛大に催された「台湾の夜」は、多くの著名バンドが巣立っていき、メディアからトロントLive Houseベストテンのひとつに数え上げられているRivoli Pool Hallで行われた。アーティストたちは三者三様に持ち味を発揮して聴衆から大歓迎を受けるとともに、今回のカナダ公演を利用して国際的に知られた音楽プロデューサMark S Berryを訪問。ゴールドディスク、プラチナディスクの認証を受けること36回に及ぶ、このベテランプロデューサは、台湾「金曲賞」および大中華圏における三者の代表的な地位を十分に心得ている。「台湾の夜」で「阿爆」、「孔雀眼」が熱唱後、コンサートめぐりをしていたエージェントの目に止まり、提携の交渉に入った。

このイベントは、1981年CMW音楽フェスティバル(Canadian Music Week)に端を発し、カナダで最も影響力ある音楽界、メディア界のイベントにまで発展しており、毎年、音楽産業の代表が多数ここに結集すると同時に、1万人以上のファンが詰めかける。カナダの外国語のうち中国語の使い手は最大のグループであり、トロントは北米ではニューヨーク、ロサンゼルスに続いてコンサート活動の会場として有名であることから、このイベント参加はことのほか重要な意義がある。地元がもつ文化的な包容力も加わって、CMW音楽フェスティバルのステージは台湾アーティストによって無視できないイベントとなった。

本日の「台湾の夜」開演前に行われた台湾アーティスト特別記者会見では、会見を主催した大京芸術の厳子貿クリエーティブディレクタがあいさつに立ち、台湾アーティストと世界のアーティストとの共演を促し、地域に捉われない互恵的な活動を増やしていきたい旨のメッセージを伝えた。そして、駐トロント台北経済文化弁事処の徐詠梅処長、国際的な音楽プロデューサMark S Berryも登壇してスピーチし、台湾アーティストを歓迎して、祝福のエールを送った。

「台湾の夜」は原住民シンガーの阿爆がトップバッターで登場。オープニングの古風な独唱で会場の視線を釘付けにしてから、原住民の言葉を教えて一緒に歌ったり、生まれながらのシンガーとしての恵まれた声を生かした、リズム感とエネルギーに溢れるパフォーマンスだった。女性電子音楽バンド「孔雀眼」は、強烈なエレクトロのリズム、宙を漂うような女声ボーカルの歌唱が特徴で、今回の公演のために、別バンドであるOVDSのドラム担当者を助っ人に加え、強烈なまでのリズムと目まぐるしい変化で驚きと興奮を与えた。第8回『金音賞』電子音楽部門でダブル受賞を果たした「Dizparity」は、若さとエレクトロによる主張のみならず、聴衆をより深い世界へと導いていった。

アーティストは公演の合間を縫って、「グラミー賞」受賞プロデューサのMark S Berryのオフィスを訪問し、台湾の次世代アーティストの多様なスタイルをアピール。Berryの方も「台湾の夜」公演を鑑賞するようパートナーを招いた。「阿爆」「孔雀眼」のパフォーマンスは特に印象深かったようで、公演後エージェントがさっそくツアー交渉に入り、今回の参加アーティストにとってすばらしいスタートとなった。「台湾の夜」およびCMW音楽フェスティバルの最新情報、公演スケジュールについては、大京芸術公式ファンページ(facebook.com/gca3nt)で随時更新されている。

Wartburg Celebrates its 26th Annual Passavant Luncheon

L to R: Dr. David J. Gentner, Rev. Sarah Payne-Brown, Rev. Amandus J. Derr, Dr. Joseph Brown

MOUNT VERNON, NEW YORK, USA, May 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mount Vernon, NY, April 25, 2018 –Wartburg held its 26th annual Passavant Society Luncheon on Wednesday, April 18 to honor Wartburg Founder Rev. Dr. William Alfred Passavant’s rich legacy by recognizing individuals who have named Wartburg as a beneficiary in their estate plans. This annual luncheon is a celebration of love and gratitude to these generous donors and recognition of today’s benevolent members.

Angela Ciminello, Wartburg Vice President of Development and Marketing, served as Mistress of Ceremonies for the wonderful event, where the newly inducted Passavant Society members received their elegant Passavant medals as well as a pin to wear in recognition of their benevolence. Recipients included long time Wartburg supporters, Reverend Sarah Payne-Brown and Dr. Joseph Brown. Rev. Payne-Brown is a Wartburg Foundation Board Member. New members also included Ms. Nancy Keane and Robert and Linda Rice, both of whom are strong supporters and active members of the Wartburg family.

Ms. Keane, daughter of former Wartburg Assisted Living resident, Richard Keane, enthusiastically joined the legacy building society. “I recognized when my father was at Meadowview Assisted Living, what a wonderful place Wartburg is and knew he was safe and well cared for,” said Ms. Keane. “Last year, in a career transition, I had the rewarding and special experience to work as a grant writer at Wartburg and it was a privilege to work behind the scenes and see the incredible work Wartburg is doing. Honestly, I didn’t just learn about grants – I learned the true meaning of generosity because it is so freely exhibited in the people at Wartburg. So that’s why I joined the Passavant Society!”

Dr. David J. Gentner, Wartburg President & CEO, said, “It is a joy and an honor to welcome Rev. and Dr. Brown, Ms. Keane and Robert and Linda Rice to our Passavant Society. It is in part because of the exemplary benevolence of individuals like these that Wartburg is able to provide premier care and services to those entrusted to our care. They are an inspiration to us all and help ensure every step forward.”

Wartburg has a long history of caring, first for children when opened as The Wartburg Orphans’ Farm School over 150 years ago as well as seniors who began to live at Wartburg at the turn of the century. At the event, Dr. Gentner posthumously recognized Passavant Members who have passed in the last year, including Johnnie Roemer and Gene J. Bonagur.

Special guest speakers included Dr. Concetta Tomaino, Founder and Executive Director of the Institute for Music and Neurological Function. Dr. Tomaino detailed the benefits of utilizing music to assist in the healing process of Wartburg residents and patients. More specifically, she referenced the success of music programs at Wartburg focused on Veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder as well as music therapy for those living with aphasia.

“We are so thankful for these forward-minded philanthropists who understand the value of estate gifts in ensuring our long term viability for the oldest member of our community,” said Ms. Ciminello. “We deeply appreciate their generosity as well as their confidence and partnership in our mission to provide ministries of healing and hope that nurture the body, mind and spirit of those we care for.”

Taiwan Artists performing at Canadian Music Week in Canada-International Performing Agent seek for Immediate Cooperation

Organized by the Bureau of Audiovisual and Music Industry Development of the Ministry of Culture, three groups of artists from Taiwan

TORONTO, CANADA, May 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Organized by the Bureau of Audiovisual and Music Industry Development of the Ministry of Culture, three groups of artists from Taiwan– ABAO, Jade Eyes, and Dizparity– participated in the largest music festival in North America, Canadian Music Week. They performed over 2 consecutive days on May 10 and 11, Toronto local time. This included the highlight of the "Taiwan Beats" showcase held today (11th), organized by Rivoli Pool Hall, one of Toronto's top ten Live Houses, which nurtured a number of renowned bands to become famous.
In addition to their demonstrating their individual features and winning a warm welcome from the audience that night, the three artist groups also visited internationally renowned music producer Mark S. Berry to help this senior producer, who has won 36 global gold and platinum record awards, fully understand Taiwan, the "Golden Melody Awards" and the representative status of artists in the Chinese market.
After excellent performances by ABAO and Jade Eyes at the "Taiwan Beats" showcase, they immediately received the interest of this exclusive tour broker and started discussions regarding cooperation.
Canadian Music Week, which started in 1981, has become the most influential music and media event in Canada. Every year, it not only brings together a large number of music and related industry representatives, but also an influx of tens of thousands of music fans.
What is more representative is that the Chinese have long been the largest foreign language group in Canada. Toronto is the largest performance venue locale on the market apart from New York and Los Angeles. There is also a local culture of multiculturalism and inclusion, which has enabled Canadian Music Week to become a significant stage for participation by Taiwanese artists.
Before today's opening of the "Taiwan Beats" showcase, a press conference was also specially held for Taiwanese artists to participate in. The opening statement by Ed Yen, creative art director of GCA Entertainment, conveyed the message brought by participating Taiwan artists, which is to start global cooperation among artists and to expand the mutual development of inter-regional performing arts.
Afterwards, the director of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Toronto, Catherine Hsu, and Mark S. Berry, a renowned producer in the international music industry, were invited to address and give a welcome and blessings for success to the Taiwanese performance artists.
The first performance of the "Taiwan Beats" showcase was by Aboriginal singer ABAO. The old-fashioned tune of the opening piece has become a killer move that quickly won over the attention of the audience. Interactive learning and singing in the indigenous language and the voice of a naturally gifted singer have allowed ABAO'S singing to continue to be full of rhythm and appeal.
The all-girl electronic trance band "Jade Eyes" blends ethereal voices and electronic sound atmosphere into the performance. For this performance, the drummer of another group, OVDS, was invited to join in to help give the music a fierce rhythm. The changing sense of hierarchy made the audience both surprised and excited.
Dizparity is the winner of two electronic music awards at the 8th “Golden Indie Music Awards”. In addition to being young, he also has confidence in electronic music and brought deeper electronic music experience to the audience.
The entertainers also took advantage of their participation in the show and paid a special visit to senior Grammy Award producer Mark S. Berry's office to introduce him to the diverse musical styles of Taiwan's new generation of artists. He also specially invited his partners to visit the “Taiwan Beats” showcase to watch the show. He was profoundly interested in the performances of ABAO and Jade Eyes. After the performance, he began brokering a concert tour, giving the artists participating in the exhibition a good beginning.
The latest news and updates on "Taiwan Beats" showcase and Canadian Music Week performances will be simultaneously updated on the official CGA Entertainment fan page (facebook.com/gca3nt). Everyone is welcome to check out the latest news online.

I’m delighted to confirm that all Xstream OTT customers operating in European markets can continue to use MediaMaker in the knowledge that it is now GDPR compliant”

— Michael Rasmussen, Xstream’s Chief Executive Officer

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK, May 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Leading OTT and TV Everywhere enabler Xstream A/S today confirms that its award-winning MediaMaker platform for OTT players is now fully compliant with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The new regulation takes effect from 25th May 2018 and applies to all OTT and TV Everywhere companies operating in the EU. It requires OTT service providers to ensure that the processes and systems they use to develop and offer video content to the general public protect the personal data of subscribers.

“As a leading European enabler of streaming technologies, it was imperative that our MediaMaker platform became fully GDPR compliant before the EU regulation became mandatory,” said Michael Rasmussen, Xstream’s Chief Executive Officer. “I’m delighted to confirm that all Xstream OTT customers operating in European markets can continue to use MediaMaker in the knowledge that it is now GDPR compliant.”

Xstream’s MediaMaker has implemented a variety of features that were designed for compliance with GDPR, specifically:
The platform supports the full Consent Management functionalities per GDPR requirements. That includes for instance content acquisition from the data subjects prior to data processing and the data subject’s right to revoke the consent at any time.

In accordance to the Right of Access requirement, Xstream in the role of Data Processor is now able to present to end users how their data is processed within the platform, so users can understand how their personal information is flowing and have better control over their privacy.

The Right to Erasure clause ensures that information subjects have the possibility to remove any information related to them at any time. MediaMaker allows data controllers to prove that the data was erased upon a request and end users may ensure that data controller is no longer in the possession of their information.

MediaMaker supports Data Portability, providing export of data belonging to a specific data subject. This data includes but is not limited to the following information: accounts, profiles, devices, orders, payments, playback history and favourites.

MediaMaker provides and maintains the registry of personal data processing operations so these can be provided and/or exported for audit to supervisory authority.

Data protection is designed into the MediaMaker system and is a standard part of the development of business processes and products around the MediaMaker ecosystem.
