臺灣藝人參展加拿大CMW音樂節 嶄新樂風與原住民古調成為演出必殺絕技

列名全球重要音樂節,位居北美規模最大的加拿大CMW音樂節將於5月7日在多倫多盛大揭幕。

TAIPEI, TAIWAN, April 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — 文化部影視及流行音樂產業局於今(18)日在臺北市長官邸舉行「2018年赴加拿大CMW音樂節」參演藝人發布記者會,並公布今年代表臺灣的參演團隊包括:阿爆、孔雀眼、Dizparity等三組藝人。

徐宜君局長表示自去年開始組代表團參展的加拿大音樂節,對於北美市場的展示開拓具有重要意義,相信臺灣藝人豐富的音樂特色,一定可以驚艷國際舞台。

三組藝人中甫獲得第八屆『金音獎』雙料電音獎的「Dizparity」表示將以結合派對、音樂創作、跨樂團合作等多向DJ角色,透過現場創作演出的方式,為參展演出帶來新感官。多次赴國外音樂節參展,深獲國外樂評、樂迷大受歡迎的女子電音迷幻樂團「孔雀眼」,為了這次的參展演出,特別邀約另一名團OVDS的鼓手加入助陣,期待讓樂迷更加感受她們演出的現場感染力。原住民歌手「阿爆」喜愛赴國際音樂節演出,即使專輯獲得2017年『金曲獎』肯定時,仍不放棄赴英國音樂節表演機會而缺席頒獎典禮。自認演唱原住民母語是最高興的一件事,尤其是祖先留下來的古調,更是國外演出時,對觀眾祭出的必殺絕技,記者會現場即興展示的古調吟唱,與其自創的新曲即呈現出臺灣多元音樂風格的特色。

三組藝人將於5月10-11日進行『CMW官方演出』及『台灣之夜』(Taiwan Beats)兩場次演出,其中『台灣之夜』演出場地為著名的The Rivoli,為加拿大媒體評選為多倫多十大Live House之一。兩場次的演出除為加拿大音樂節增添華語音樂嶄新風貌,引發當地媒體最大關注效應,進而為臺灣音樂、華語音樂開闢新市場。

起源於1981年的Canadian Music Week現在已經發展成為加拿大最具影響力的音樂和媒體活動,結合論壇講座、頒獎典禮、影展,以及安排城市中各個表演場地的音樂演出,為國際音樂人提供了一個豐富的展示與商務交流平台,每年除匯集了大量的音樂及相關產業代表參加,更少不了數以萬計樂迷的湧入參與。為期一週的活動期間不單是北美舉辦時間最長、規模最大的音樂節,相較於國際其他大音樂節也不遑多讓。有鑑於華語早已成為加拿大外來語言的最大族群,而多倫多更是除了紐約、洛杉磯之外,最大的演場會市場發展地,加拿大音樂節成為臺灣藝人參展不可忽略的舞台。

『台灣之夜』及更多CMW加拿大音樂節最新訊息與演出動態,將同步更新於大京藝術官方粉絲頁(facebook.com/gca3nt),歡迎各界上線查詢最新消息。

Taiwanese Artists Participate in Canadian Music Week

Taiwanese Artists Participate in Canadian Music Week
Brand New Musical Energy Earns Organizers’ Endorsement and Recommendation

TAIPEI, TAIWAN, April 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Canadian Music Week is a major international music festival which is one of the largest in North America and is set to open in Toronto on May 7. The Bureau of Audiovisual and Music Industry Development of the Ministry of Culture has carefully organized a team of Taiwanese artists to participate in this grand and important event. Today (April 18), the “2018 Canadian Music Week Visit” press conference, was held at the Taipei Mayor’s Official Residence for the participating artists. Three performing groups will represent Taiwan this year, including: Abao, Jade Eyes, and Dizparity. They will leave for Toronto, Canada on May 8, and are expected to generate hot topics on Taiwanese music in the biggest Chinese market in North America.

Canadian Music Week was first held in 1981. Originally established as a music week, it has already developed into the most influential music and media event in Canada. CMW incorporates conferences, award ceremonies, and film exhibitions, and organizes musical performances in venues throughout the city to provide a rich musical exhibition and commercial exchange platform. Every year, besides gathering a large number of music and film producers, as well as industrial representatives including internet, publishing, and record companies, to conduct exchange and commercial discussion, the event is also attended by tens of thousands of fans. This one-week event is the longest and largest music festival in North America, and its scale is even comparable to other major international music festivals. Canadian Music Week has long since developed from a simple music week to “Canada’s largest new music festival”.

In view of the Chinese being Canada’s largest foreign ethnic group since long ago, Chinese popular music plays an influential role in the local area. Furthermore, Toronto is also the largest developing concert market outside of New York and Los Angeles, which is why participating in this exhibition is of critical significance. The three groups of artists sent by the Bureau of Audiovisual and Music Industry Development of the Ministry of Culture to perform are: “Abao”, “Jade Eyes”, and “Dizparity”. With a creative style that blends aboriginal elements into a variety of musical styles including rock, reggae, and R&B, Abao shows off the beautiful voice of the Paiwan tribe together with an alluring aboriginal musical rhythm. Bearing the title of “Eastern Colors” is the all-girl electronic trance group, Jade Eyes, which is known for music characterized by a strong techno rhythm accompanying ethereal feminine singing voices. During the 2017 SXSW music festival, the group also received the honor of being recommended by the organizers to give an additional official performance. Finally, the winner of “Best Electronic Album” and “Best Electronic Single” at the 8th “Golden Indie Music Awards”, Dizparity, who is only in his twenties, portrays a new trend for stylish parties through his dedication to his own unique sound.

These three groups of Taiwanese artists, with their vastly different musical styles, will hold two performances in Taiwan, including the “Taiwan Beats” showcase. Aside from enriching the Canadian music festival with new styles of Chinese music, the official joint media campaign with CMW, and the promotion of collaborations with distinguished artists, will help raise the stature of artists on both sides, increase their presence in both markets, and maximize local media attention.

Canadian Rock Band Across The Board Set To Release Second Full Length Album "Sonic Boom"

Toronto-based rock band, Across The Board will release their second full-length album, "Sonic Boom" on May 4, 2018.

I imagined what it would really take to make it in this music industry…the sheer strength and unrelenting work we need to make a mark amidst all the noise, and the importance of writing great music”

— Jacqueline Auguste, Across The Board

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, April 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Award-winning Canadian rock band, Across The Board (ATB), will release their newest album on May 4, 2018. "SONIC BOOM" – an eight track collection of infectious pop rock songs that chronicle the breaking of a rock band and the highs and lows along the journey to success — is ATB's second full length album, on the heels of their EP "AMENDS" and cross-Canada tour this past year. Produced and recorded in Toronto by MC2 Music Media, the album pays homage to the determination and drive it takes to achieve success as a band, and doesn't fail to tell the truth about the rejection and indifference that can plague such a path.

Fronted by Toronto physician/musician Jacqueline Auguste, the album was written and conceptualized by Auguste during the band's cross-Canada train tour from Toronto to Vancouver and back last summer. "I imagined what it would really take to make it in this music industry", shares Auguste, "–not only the sheer strength and unrelenting work we need to make a mark amidst all the noise, but the importance of writing great music that resonates with our fans."

Auguste and her life partner Andy Ramjattan (bass player for the band), founded the group in 2013 out of a desire to move their garage and back yard jams to social media. They created a popular cover webseries, "Pick Up & Play" now in its 5th season on Youtube, and decided to take their show on the road with the debut album "JANE ON FIRE", released in June of 2016. Since then, Across The Board has played to sold-out crowds across Ontario, and from Newfoundland to Vancouver. Recipients of four international music awards for work on "JANE ON FIRE" and "AMENDS", ATB is set to take off yet again on tour this spring and summer across Southern Ontario and into Quebec and the Maritimes with "SONIC BOOM".

Having received national and international terrestrial and college radio play for their original songs from both previous major releases, "JANE ON FIRE" and "AMENDS", Across The Board is excited to share their newest work "SONIC BOOM" with audiences in Canada and beyond in hopes of continuing to promote Canada as a major creative force on the international music scene.

SONIC BOOM – Take A Rock Opera Journey

"I pictured the listener's journey through the album as a rock opera—with a story, a heroine, and the trials and tribulations of a musical climax and anticlimax," says Auguste. The story is set in the small city of Camrose, where Auguste grew up—a small farming community in the heart of Alberta. As a young musician, Auguste dreamed of taking her music to the 'big city' and the album echoes her journey by rail to Toronto where she eventually meets the characters who will either try to steal her dream, or help her succeed.

1. Sonic Boom – describes the dream of a successful music career and sets the stage for the journey– "No one's gonna stand in my way, take the sun from my day, try to rain on my parade—can you hear my sonic boom?!".

2. Back To The Tracks – written aboard the Via Rail flagship train, "The Canadian", on her coast to coast musical tour in 2017– Auguste writes about the majestic beauty in her vast country of Canada, making reference to the poverty lines we draw on the "other side of the tracks" and how the rails bind and keep the country alive. She calls to Canadians to mind the trains and clean up their yards—often the only side of Canada that rail tourists get to experience.

3. I've Already Fallen For You – what is a journey without a romance?—Auguste meets her life partner as they embark on the same dream.

4. It Shouldn't Be This Hard – not every adventure is without difficulty—Auguste meets the scammers and the crooks in the music industry and attempts to rise above the deception.

5. No Curtain Call- likely the most heart-wrenching and emotional points of the album—the song transports the listener into a small Ontario bar, where patrons are chatting indistinctly in the background, paying little attention to the artist, as she realizes that not every cloud has a silver lining–accompanied by a haunting acoustic solo from lead guitarist, Ben Healey.

6. Kite – written by Bono and The Edge, brings a new awakening to Auguste as she recommits to the journey of bringing her music to the world- punctuated by a crying pedal steel from ATB's keyboardist, Marty Heller, "Who's to know where the wind will take you, who's to know what it is will break you".

7. Nothing To Say – a fun and catchy pop rock gem, "Nothing To Say" is meant to represent the hit song that changes the tide.

8. Two Step – written by ATB producer, Darnell Toth and Toronto rocker, Jessica Speziale– provides the perfect finale of strength, resolve, championship and victory to conclude the story. "two steps ahead of winning, one shot is all it takes… the battle is yours but the war is mine".

Victor Herbert's Comic Opera The Enchantress is Presented in New York City by VHRP LIVE!

Mystery! Royalty! Intrigue! Panic! It's Business as usual at the White House – oops, the Castle of Zergovia; the Prince comes of age, and must choose his Queen.

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, April 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — VHRP LIVE! presents

THE ENCHANTRESS A Comic Opera by VICTOR HERBERT
Featuring THE NEW VICTOR HERBERT ORCHESTRA

120 W. 69th St, NYC, NY 10023
Christ & St. Stephens Episcopal Church
8pm Tuesday & Wednesday,
April 24th & 25th, 2018

MYSTERY! ROYALTY! INTRIGUE! PANIC! Just business as usual at the White House – oops, the Castle – in a mythical land called Zergovia, where the dashing Crown Prince Ivan has come of age and now must choose his Queen. Hopeful princesses from around the world, rarely good at rejection, are forced to face their fears when the enchanting Vivien Savary appears. Is she Austrian? Is she an Opera Diva?? Is she, or isn't she, Royalty???

Do come see what marvelous mischief THE ENCHANTRESS has up her sleeve, and what merry, royal, and romantic escapades ensue in the Monarchy!

The Irish-American composer Victor Herbert was the "Crown Prince" of American popular music, especially when operetta commanded the early 20th century Broadway stage. Herbert's rhapsodic scores often became instant hits that were published widely and heard from coast to coast.

Originally staged in New York City in 1911, The New York Times published "MUSIC THAT CHARMS BY VICTOR HERBERT; In 'The Enchantress,' Which Raises Kitty Gordon to the Stars. A community already under obligations to Victor Herbert will again find itself his debtor for some very delightful music contributed in his new opera comique, presented at the New York Theatre last night, and apparently destined to a considerable popularity." Shortly after his death in 1924 the music critic in the New York World, stated Herbert’s popularity exceeded that of any other composer in America, adding “Victor Herbert raised light opera music to a degree of harmonic sophistication that it had never before reached.”

Among the many songs Victor Herbert launched into popular culture, one of the most famous is from The Enchantress and is titled "Art is Calling for Me," also commonly referred to as "I Want to be a Prima Donna."

In addition to his musical endeavors, Herbert was instrumental in the formation of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), and he fought radio broadcasters who tried to use popular and classical music without paying royalties. When dance stormed the theatrical world, Herbert and his collaborators were ready to deliver with the Waltz, the Mazurka and the Polonaise in THE ENCHANTRESS. Victor Herbert left all of Broadway in love with elegance, romance and dance. He'll do the same again for you this Spring.

THE ENCHANTRESS presented by VHRP LIVE! includes the acting talents and singing voices of (in order of appearance): Colm Fitzmaurice, Andrew Troop, Jonathan Fox Powers, Haley Vick, Jane Hoffman, Sonora Dolce, JoAnna Geffert, Susan Case, David Seatter, Jovani Demetrie, Brian Kilday, Drew Bolander, Tom Carle, Claire Leyden, Vira Slywotzky, and Joanie Brittingham.

THE NEW VICTOR HERBERT ORCHESTRA was launched in 2017 and can be heard for the second time in THE ENCHANTRESS. The NVHO is conducted by Michael Thomas, and is comprised of Violin, Cello, Flute, Percussion, Harp, and Piano by William Hicks, some of the NVHO's musicians appear courtesy of AFM Local 802.

Peter Kater Currently has TWO Records on the Billboard New Age Chart!

Grammy Winning Artist, Peter Kater

Peter Kater’s new album, She, was release March 30, 2018

Dancing On Water

Grammy Winning Artist, Peter Kater is Number 1 on Amazon’s Hot New Release Chart

Peter Kater’s seemingly supernatural ability to play with such depth and emotion has drawn him fans from around the world for nearly four decades.”

— BMI MusicWorld Magazine

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, April 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — It’s been a good year so far for pianist, Peter Kater. After winning his first Grammy in February (his 13th nomination), Peter has also defied the odds by having two top 10 albums on the Billboard New Age Chart in the same week.

The new record, She (featuring Peia Luzzi) and a celebration of women, was released on March 30 and already has debuted at number 3 on the Billboard New Age Chart. It was also number 1 on Amazon’s Hot New Release Chart.

Dancing with Water (released in 2017), won the Grammy for Best New Age Album in February of this year. The album consists of improvised piano solos performed by Mr. Kater while individuals lay under his piano. The record previously peaked at number 3 on the Billboard chart and the album re-emerged last week at number 8.

In his career, Peter Kater has recorded over 60 albums and has scored the music for over 100 television & film productions including 11 On and Off-Broadway dramatic plays. Having the award show in NY this year also stirred up some nostalgia for Mr. Kater, "It's also cool that the awards were in New York because of the Broadway plays I scored in the 90's." His music has been featured in everything from Olympic games to the Kentucky Derby to Wild World of Sports and many in-between. He has performed all over the world including the United Nations where he received the prestigious United Nations Environment Leadership Award. 

Mr. Kater is a long time supporter of holistic wellness and will be hosting The Art of Presence retreat in Whitefish, MT in August. "Being present with yourself and in your life is the single most healing, inspiring and transformative practice you will ever learn." – Peter Kater

Mr. Kater is currently touring in the USA with new dates on the East Coast (USA) to be added soon. To see tour dates and purchase tickets, please visit his website at www.PeterKater.com.

LA-Based Composer Releases Debut Nature Soundscape Album Inspired By Daughter

Los Angeles-based composer Forest Robots aka Fran Dominguez has released his debut album, "Super Moon Moonlignt Part One." It's the first in a series of albums.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, April 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Originally from [Mexico], Forest Robots AKA Fran Dominguez is a talented LA-based music composer who has honed his craft over several years. Specializing in contemporary instrumental music, Fran's work evokes strong emotions through the creation of beautiful sounds, which listeners have described as "hypnotic", "ambient", and "infectious".

The concept for Forest Robots began while Fran was traveling through the legendary mountain range of the Sierra Nevada in [2011-present]. While compiling hundreds of pictures of the beautiful landscape, narratives of his adventures attached themselves to his collection of images.

When his daughter was born in [2014], these narratives began to weave into a cohesive story, which Fran used to teach his daughter about the wonders of nature, the importance of spending time outdoors connecting with nature, and how vital it is to conserve public spaces.

Soon after, these narratives inspired Fran's music, and Forest Robots was formed.

Fran Dominguez's debut album 'Super Moon Moonlight Part One' is the first in a series of albums dedicated to his daughter. A love letter about the wonders of nature, the ten-track album is also a public message with the aim of inspiring others to spend more time outdoors.

With mesmerizing soundscapes, the album mixes orchestral instruments with various synthesizers, filtered dance beats, and electronic pads, to illustrate the beneficial dynamics of personal intimacy that can be achieved through connecting with nature on a deeper level.
