Heather Schmidt

February 11th, 2011

Pianist and composer Heather Schmidt have garnered praise from the press, describing her as “as much a pianist in the professional sense as she is a composer”. Her career spans performances, broadcasts, commissions and awards in Canada, the United States, Russia, France, Germany, Switzerland, Poland, the Czech Republic, England, Cyprus, Mexico, Brazil, and the British West Indies.

Originally from Calgary, she began studies in piano and composition at the age of 4. She studied at Juilliard and at Indiana University, where at age 21, she became the youngest student to receive a doctorate.

As a virtuoso pianist, Heather is in demand for recitals, chamber and concerto performances, and recordings. Her recent NAXOS recording features solo piano music by Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel. As an acclaimed composer, she has received commissions and composer residencies worldwide. Heather also composes scores for film and television. Recently, she was featured in “Synchronicity” on BRAVO television.

Heather teaches at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, and guest teaches throughout the world. She is also a “performance coach”, helping individuals in music and other disciplines achieve optimal performance through stress management and performance enhancement strategies. This is a solo piano piece, Solus, that demonstrates her abilities both as a composer and a piano player.


Stop Searchin

February 10th, 2011

Dark magic. The making of a rougher version on Dummy ( The Portishead masterpiece ). I guess I really needed to prove I was different, didn’t want to review the same notes everyone had on their playlist. It doesn’t mean I didn’t listen to it. And from the very first second I was hooked. Everything about it`s sound, starts with the minimal rough kick snr shuffle grooves, using metallic industrial percussives, with the amp hum and instrument buzz, the saturated heavy analogue bass and sub sounds, the cheesy dubbish keys with those dub timing delays, the hazy blur of reverb soaked vocal lines, the down sampled tracks, all for the final purpose of making a no bullshit great dark record.

Zola Jesus and LA vampires, forgive me for patronizing you guys, this is brilliant, a record I wish I could have made, and ignoring it is not an option. Have been listening to it forever walking around the city of  Tel Aviv with my Armadilofiles Ipod Touch on. The grapghics, as usual, is on the house.

What does the Anemone got to do with it?

February 8th, 2011

Answer is: Nothin. Just loved the way it looks. Got a mail from Charles Eric Charrier. Charles-Eric Charrier, half of the duo MAN, has recorded multiple albums, film scores, and collaborative projects with painters and choreographers. Now he has an album out, ‘Silver’, which he recorded with Collaborators Ronan Benoit and Cyril Secq. Acording to Experimedia, which releases Silver, this project is a lesson in release and tension. You`ll find it  hard to categorize their creation. It`s roots dig deep into free jazz and modern composition, touching psychedelic, rock and electronic music as well. It`s not the first time we write about Charles Eric Charrier, and if you wil take the time and listen to The Silver preview, you`ll understand why we really dig the this gifted artist.

When it`s over

February 6th, 2011

I have just finished reading a paper written by a young brilliant  English literature major about The Seventh Seal by Bergman. Read it twice, the last thing I wanna do is discuss the way it affected me, and the only proper soundtrack for a moment like this, is Louis Vasquez`s paranoia soaked ‘When it`s over’.. My apologies for sounding too dramatic but hey, that`s life, or death, or both, so fuck it.

Echo lake with Microsoft Kinect

February 3rd, 2011

Lately we have been checking relatively inexpensive HD cameras to enable us film some Take away shows type shit. This new song`s video by Echo Lake, out on Valentine`s day on No pain in pop, is the first clip to be made with the Microsoft Kinect camera, The footage was shot on that piece of £130 equipment and recorded to custom software running on a laptop. Oops, we almost forgot, we love that song.

Echo Lake’s Young Silence 12″ EP is out February 14 on No Pain In Pop

Bird call

February 2nd, 2011

I could swear this was Karen Dalton. But as I have found out later, Chiara Angelicola has been around for quite awhile. This EP was produced by Joel Hamilton, known for his production work with Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, and The black keys. She has written all 6 tracks on this EP of Bird call (Chiara and Joel collab), and as you can hear on ‘Waltz in the snow’, her writing is as accomplished as the performance.

The Dodos are back

February 2nd, 2011

The Dodos have been one of my favorite bands for awhile. Those broken rhythms, those unique guitar tunings, unusual vocal melodies. So original, and now with a new song from No Color, “Black night“.

BESSt Pop

February 1st, 2011

I hope I am not going to disappoint our indie refined taste readers, but today, maybe cause I got the flu, or maybe cause I got no energy left in me, or fuck it, I don’t need excuses, I could just share a pop song that gave me strength and filled me with crumbs of energy. Bess Rogers could write great great pop songs, and hey, she did the job..
