Taiwanese Artists Demonstrate their Musical Creativity and Performance Skills at the MIDEM Record Exhibition in France

The participating artists include the following three groups

Eve Ai

TAIPEI, TAIWAN, May 2, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today (May 2), the Bureau of Audiovisual and Music Industry Development of the Ministry of Culture held a pre-exhibition press conference for the “2018 MIDEM Record Exhibition in Cannes, France” at the Taipei Mayor’s Official Residence and announced the performing groups representing Taiwan this year.

The participating artists include the following three groups: Eve Ai, Cosmos People, and DJ Cookie. The Taiwanese delegation will also include industry representatives who will travel to France to participate in activities such as professional forums and commercial activities, as well as expand music and other relevant businesses.

The Bureau of Audiovisual and Music Industry Development, MOC asserts that the government has been sending delegations to the MIDEM International Record Exhibition every year since 1995. As a result of our continued participation and promotion of popular Chinese music in Europe, our annual “Taiwan Beats” showcase has already become a prominent event in the exhibition, successfully attracting the enthusiastic attendance of participants from around the world. Furthermore, using our national brand image, we established the “Taiwan Pavilion” to serve as a foreign exhibition and export center, which has allowed us to effectively promote Taiwan’s brand image and facilitate international cooperation and business opportunities. For example, last year, over 150 international music industry representatives participated in commercial exchange at the Taiwan Pavilion. The Minister of Culture of France also visited the Taiwan Pavilion during the exhibition, and even promoted commercial discussion and cooperation arrangements after the exhibition as well.

For this year’s “Taiwan Beats” showcase, a total of two performances will be held on June 7 at the MIDEM venue on the MIDEM Beach, and on June 9 at Le Théâtre de Tour Eiffel in Paris respectively. The three performing groups of artists include Eve Ai, who was nominated for seven categories at last year’s Global Melody Awards and ultimately won the title of Best Female Vocalist. The unrelenting persistence she displayed over many years as she sought to improve herself in the field of music finally came to fruition in 2017 as she successfully secured the title of “Queen Diva” at the Golden Melody Awards. This achievement further demonstrates that the performance skills of Eve Ai have fulfilled the expectations of the audience. The second participating group is Cosmos People, a rising band which formed more than 10 years ago that has been rapidly increasing in fame. Their creativity and ability to communicate popular trends with the audience, as well as their skill in using dance music and musical styles to drive the atmosphere of the concert have led them to become one of the top bands of today. The final participating artist is DJ Cookie. She is not only the first female DJ to release a solo album in Taiwan, but also the only female Chinese representative to be listed as one of the “Top 100 Best World Female DJs”. DJ Cookie’s specializes in the deft techniques involved in various styles of music, and this has led her to become a popular artist whose performances are coveted by international brands and fashionable large-scale parties.

The MIDEM International Record Exhibition in Cannes, France has the longest history and is the most important commercial record and music exhibition in the world. Elites and media outlets of international popular music industries from around the world gather at this event and conduct exchange through activities such as copyright trade, performances, and forums. The grand opening of the 52nd MIDEM will take place on June 5 in France. Relevant activities include professional forums and media events. The latest news and performance information on the “2018 MIDEM Record Exhibition in Cannes, France” will be simultaneously updated on the Taiwan Beats channels (https://www.facebook.com/taiwanbeats & https://twitter.com/TaiwanBeats) and official GCA Entertainment fan page.

Mozart's Comedic Opera – Così fan tutte – to Inaugurate Toronto's Newest Opera Company

Toronto Lyric Opera Centre (TLOC) to perform Mozart's Così fan tutte on Sunday, May 6, 2018 @ 7:00pm – Trinity-St. Pauls, 427 Bloor St West, Toronto

Undergraduate student driven opera, theatre and dance companies like the TLOC have become standing fixtures at major universities like Harvard, Northwestern and McGill”

— Jacob Feldman, Founder & Artistic Director

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 1, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The first production of Toronto's newest opera company, the Toronto Lyric Opera Centre (TLOC), will be Mozart's Così fan tutte on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at Trinity St Pauls at 7:00 pm; conducted by Maestro David Bowser. The lead roles will be performed by University of Toronto Faculty of Music undergraduate students Jacob Feldman, baritone, Korin Thomas-Smith, baritone, Danielle Nicholson, mezzo-soprano, Martina Myskohlid, soprano and joined by alumnus, Gwenna Fairchild-Taylor, soprano and Canadian Opera Company Ensemble graduate, Jean-Phillipe Lazure, tenor. The 24-piece orchestra will consist of University of Toronto (UofT) Faculty of Music students together with members of the Toronto Mozart Players. The opera is directed by UofT Operatic Directing Diploma alumnus David Ambrose. Tickets are available here.

Mozart's opera, Così fan tutte, is an emotional rollercoaster for the performers on stage and a knee-slapping good time for serious opera goers and newcomers to opera alike. This new production brings the timeless story of spouse-swapping to life by combining Mozart's masterpiece with a new English narration. The singing will be in the original Italian with English surtitles.

This inaugural production of the TLOC comes on the heels of a highly successful concert curated and performed by Faculty of Music students in the spring of 2017 which was generously funded by the Faculty of Music Undergraduate Association (FMUA). The FMUA's Special Projects Fund is a monetary award granting organization that undergraduate students can apply to for financial assistance for extra-curricular activities meant to enhance their professional development and student experience.

Rebekah Tam, current president of the FMUA said "we are very grateful to our peer and colleague, Jacob Feldman, who has taken the initiative to form the TLOC. Feldman's work as a former executive on the FMUA and as a board member on the University of Toronto Student's Union has pioneered many projects for the benefit of our students and has culminated as the founding Artistic Director of TLOC. His contribution to student government will leave a lasting positive enhancement to the overall student experience at our premier music faculty."

Jacob Feldman, founding Artistic Director of the TLOC has said that he is "proud and grateful to have played a role in the creation of a student-lead opera company at [his] alma mater." Feldman also commented; "Undergraduate student driven opera, theatre and dance companies like the TLOC have become standing fixtures at major universities like Harvard, Northwestern and McGill. My hope is that future leaders of the TLOC will have as positive of an experience as I have been to so fortunate to have." Feldman is currently completing his undergraduate degree at the Faculty of Music in the Opera Undergraduate Program.

The University of Toronto's Faculty of Music hosts hundreds of public events, recitals, master classes and two mainstage operas every year. The UofT Faculty of Music's student body comprises some of Canada's brightest emerging classical singers and musicians, many of whom frequently perform in Toronto's vibrant classical musical scene. These students are consistently highly regarded and sought after by graduate music schools across Canada, the USA and Europe. Many undergraduates have won or placed as finalists in international competitions and have gone on to careers at the highest levels of performance nationally and internationally. Annually, undergraduate students spend their summers in residencies and fellowships at highly competitive music festivals to enhance their skills under many of the world's top performers and tutors. To find a UofT student at Tanglewood, the Aspen Summer Music Festival and School, the Music Academy of the West, the Ravinia Festival, and the Chataqua Festival, to name a few, is certainly common place.

About TLOC (Toronto Lyric Opera Centre)
The Toronto Lyric Opera Centre (TLOC) is funded by the University of Toronto's Faculty of Music Undergraduate Association (FMUA) to showcase the Faculty's emerging classical artists and musicians, along with providing experience in producing, directing and administrating a commercial operatic and classical music production.

shokoCAST.io Unveils its decentralised mobile app design




shokoCAST, the world's first blockchain-enabled decentralised social music service is proud to unveil its design for its mobile solution.

JOHANNESBURG, GAUTENG, SOUTH AFRICA, May 1, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — shokoCAST, the world's first blockchain-enabled decentralised social music service is proud to unveil its design for its mobile solution, which is currently under intensive development to provide a seamlessly integrated user experience. Slated to release in Q4 2018, the shokoCAST mobile app offers listeners and musicians a revolutionary experience that is second to none with new ways to interact, discover and engage in music. It's intended that this solution would be launched as a Decentralised Application or DApp. Take a look at the slick and exciting new user interfaces!

Great products are a long and tedious journey and a result of well-orchestrated collaborations between many teams. The process started with an understanding of the purpose of the mobile app and our intention is that it provides an integrated solution by converging the entire music value chain so as to liberate music in general, a key enabler to emerging economies including Africa. Then, a competitor and trend analysis was carried out, followed by prototyping, testing and ironing out the visual details. The UI (User Interface) team worked in collaboration with the web and mobile teams throughout the process of developing this product. Although, this flow isn’t always set in stone some problems are easily solvable but most of the work done at shokoCAST is new, even ground-breaking, inevitably making the work more intricate and complicated. All of our product features are built from the ground up and go through many iterations of design and development. The ethos here is to test every idea and filter out those that don’t work, and with every iteration, we strive towards perfection.

“The shokoCAST mobile app is a critical milestone in its roadmap and with the support of our community and partners, we are delivery focused. The concept and creation of the mobile app is a very exciting and important step in the realisation of the shokoCAST platform becoming a global access point to music creation, production, distribution and consumption. Being a catalyst, we hope to launch it as a DApp so as to help drive music creation by artists and attract new partnerships and funding for the platform,” says Therry Martins, CEO and Founder of shokoCAST.

This milestone holds many benefits to the industry with a value chain that has remained largely unchanged and a focus shifting to streaming services. With services costing almost nothing, shokoCAST now boasts over 10,000 artists who have given their intention, over the past two weeks, of being part of this project of which over 6,000 are from across Africa. The shokoCAST platform is intended to liberate music, unlike the industry at large, by providing artists with instantaneous payments, new revenue making streams including live streaming, smart contracts for bands and record labels for payment automation, advertising revenue, and much more. Along with traditional functionality, the shokoCAST app has functionality that takes musicians along the value chain from creating music with audio workstation integration to producing, distributing and provides the music to the world. It also provides listeners with a decentralised radio with never ending 'smart' playslist that adapt to the user. Our Socialing features are customary and assists in engaging and building the community together with the entire feature repository that is unique to the platform.

More about shokoCAST
shokoCAST is the world's first blockchain-based social music content creation, distribution and monetization platform that introduces the multibillion-dollar global music industry to cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.

shokoCAST brings about the rebirth of sound and evolution of music by converging the entire music value chain whilst bringing the artist directly to the fans. It’s a place where musicians build careers, fans find inspiration and managers discover talent!

Seattle Acoustic Blues-Pop Artist And Navy Vet Phillip Broussard Does It “All Over Again”

Seattle acoustic blues-pop singer-songwriter and 2-tour Navy veteran Phillip Broussard has released his official lyric video for "All Over Again."

And then you knocked on the door right outside
It was a beautiful surprise
I didn’t know where we should begin
All I know is that I fell in love all over again”

— Phillip Broussard

KITSAP, WASHINGTON, USA, May 1, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In November 2017, Seattle-based acoustic blues-pop singer-songwriter Phillip Brousard released his debut EP, "Wavelength." The EP was dedicated to the memory of his father. First single, "Just Wanna Believe" thrust Phillip into the national spotlight, garnering critical praise and radio airplay. Now, MTS Management Group is happy to announce the release of Phillip's Official Lyric Video for 2nd single, "All Over Again."


ABOUT PHILLIP BROUSSARD: Born and raised in Washington State, Phillip Broussard discovered his passion early in life, when his father brought home a guitar. His father's original intention was to play the guitar himself, but he soon found Phillip picking up the guitar, when he didn't think anyone was watching. Phillip grew up under the influence of his father's favorites, Pink Floyd, James Taylor, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton. What started as just a few chords, ignited a desire to share his new found passion with the world.

Then, tragedy struck at 18 years old, when Phillip's father, grandfather and uncle passed away within 6 months of each other.

Phillip put down his guitar and enlisted in the United States Navy, in an attempt to quell his grief. Early on in his Naval career, someone handed Phillip a copy of John Mayer's cd, "Room for Squares". This album reignited Phillip's passion for the guitar. In 2007, Phillip deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. During this time, he refined his guitar skills…
