David Bowie’s documentary Moonage Daydream has had an impact at the box office.

Directed by Brett Morgen, the film is the first to receive full approval and access from the David Bowie Estate. BMG and Live Nation co-produced the documentary, while Warner Music and Sony Music licensed the catalog.

According to UK and Irish weekend box office figures, when it opened in cinemas, Moonage Daydream grossed £375,399 and cracked the Top 5. With the previous week’s box office receipts on Imax screens, the film has now taken £676,185 in total.

This is good news for catalog label Rhino, which has already established David Bowie as a streaming star (16.2 million monthly Spotify listeners) and made him the number one artist in vinyl sales.

Bowie’s latest partnership is a campaign with YouTube Shorts featuring classic footage to mark the release of the documentary. This is the first time Bowie’s catalog has been available on YouTube Shorts.

The Rhino team is also preparing a campaign for a Moonage Daydream companion album. The release features songs spanning Bowie’s career and includes previously unreleased material, unique mixes created for the film and this release, and dialogue by David Bowie himself. It’s available digitally and a CD will be available November 18, followed by a vinyl edition in 2023.

It follows landmark releases from the past year, including the Brilliant Adventure box set, the lost album Toy, and 50th anniversary editions of The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders Of Mars.

music weekThe Moonage Daydream report made headlines with major news outlets picking up our interview with Warner Chappell CEO and Co-Chairman Guy Moot about David Bowie’s composition catalog projects. We’ve also released a rare interview with the music icon’s longtime publicist, Alan Edwards.

The next big step will be the recorded music catalog united under Warner Music in 2023. Here, Tom Gallacher, Senior Director, Digital and Marketing at Rhino UK, reveals the scale of their catalog ambitions…

How will Rhino work on Bowie’s catalog around this cinema release?

“We have seen significant increases in other artists’ catalog around the release of new documentaries, such as the doc Biggie on Netflix and Tina on Sky/HBO, and we expect this trend to continue with Moonage Daydream. , especially given the quality of the film, the subject matter and the scale of the release. The digital opportunities are obvious and immediate as fans who watch the film then seek out the tracks on streaming platforms. But our job is to to use the buzz around the film to ensure that even people who don’t go to the movies think of Bowie and explore his catalog. This will be done through a mix of social content, joint marketing with the film company and partnerships with the DSPs.

“The Bowie catalog is one of our best physical performers – as you reported earlier this year, he’s the UK’s best-selling vinyl artist of this century. So we’ll be working with our sales team and our retail partners on ways to drive sales around this event.”

Are there opportunities to reach new Bowie fans around the documentary – how can you direct moviegoers to DSPs?

“We see the film as an important cultural moment, one that will have appeal beyond the existing fan base and introduce this incredible catalog to new listeners. The joy of tools like Shazam is that they make it easier to discover and going from seeing something on screen – at the cinema or at home – to looking for something on your phone is much easier than before. We spoke with DSPs about how we work together around the post to support the campaign.”

The film uses IMAX 12.0 audio and Dolby Atmos – are you planning any further Bowie releases in HD/Atmos audio formats?

“We have just released a Tony Visconti Dolby Atmos mix of Space Oddity, which was already available in Sony 360 Reality Audio, and Sony has released a number of other albums from the latter part of David’s career in Sony 360 Reality Audio In collaboration with the field, we are constantly studying possible opportunities for the catalog, including in space environments.

How is the catalog campaign progressing? How successful was Ziggy Stardust’s anniversary release?

“We were very pleased with the Ziggy campaign [UK vinyl sales of the classic LP on vinyl are 11,417 so far in 2022, according to the Official Charts Company]. Streams for the album increased by 30% globally after the anniversary due to how well we were able to engage with DSPs around the date. Together with Spotify, we delivered a new commentary from the album’s co-producer, Ken Scott, on the album via their Music & Talk feature, which resulted in a profile on the platform and a notice board outside Leicester Square. We also worked on an exciting campaign with Amazon [‘Ziggy’ became only the fifth wake word for Echo devices].”

We are very excited to unite post-2000 albums with the catalog we already control and work on career-wide campaigns.

Tom Gallacher

Will the London pop-up store continue this year?

“The pop-up was something that was organized by the Bowie Estate but that we were involved in supporting. It was always planned as a one-time event around Bowie’s 75th birthday, so I don’t think there are plans to bring it back. But they were very happy with the way it went and the buzz it generated.

What’s the next step in the reissue campaign?

“We are now obviously in the 50th anniversary cycle, so all of these key albums will be celebrated in different ways. The beauty of working on such an amazing and comprehensive catalog is that there are always key dates to mark. The Bowie team is therefore still working on the best ways to ensure that everything gets its moment but that the catalog is managed in a respectful manner.

How are you preparing for the post-2000 catalog coming to Warner in 2023?

“We’re very excited to unite post-2000 albums with the catalog we already control and work on career-spanning campaigns. There’s always a lot going on with Bowie, so I’m sure the team will work with the estate and find the right place for the right campaign at the right time.

Trailblazer music instructor joins Michigan Marching Band for homecoming https://www.urbanartadventures.com/trailblazer-music-instructor-joins-michigan-marching-band-for-homecoming/ Fri, 23 Sep 2022 18:35:00 +0000 https://www.urbanartadventures.com/trailblazer-music-instructor-joins-michigan-marching-band-for-homecoming/ September 23 – TRAVERSE CITY – A former Traverse City school music instructor and administrator will climb the Big House Tower this weekend.

September 23 – TRAVERSE CITY – A former Traverse City school music instructor and administrator will climb the Big House Tower this weekend.

Lynn Hansen isn’t shy about leading the Michigan Marching and Alumni groups past the 107,000-seat crowd at Michigan Stadium — all podium time as the 22-year-old Traverse City-area public school group leader with more than 500 children per term has prepared her a lot.

“I was often the center of my life,” Hansen said.

But what really sold Hansen, who describes himself as “the shy personality type away from the spotlight,” was his ability to mark the times, commemorating an important chapter in Michigan history.

Hansen was one of 12 women to join the Michigan Marching Band the first year women were allowed. The state’s Title IX Education Amendment Act stated that no education program receiving federal dollars could discriminate on the basis of gender. It came into effect in 1972, the year she joined.

And while the women in Michigan’s education program hadn’t received notice of an audition for the college group, a dozen women showed up.

“There were so many emotions related to this experience,” Hansen said. “It was a huge challenge.”

Then a tenor saxophonist from the south of Lyon, Hansen said she felt little resistance from her male peers.

“What I remember very clearly is that we had the backing of the guys, they weren’t the enemy. Some acted like big brothers to support us,” Hansen said.

The conductor at the time was another story. He was unwelcoming and “over-provoked” the presence of women musically and physically, she recalls. Conversations with him about auditions “haunt her a bit,” she said.

But they kept pushing and working hard, and by the end of her time in Michigan — where she earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree in music education — the group “was like a family.”

“Overall, it was just a phenomenal experience to be in the front row and to be able to chart that course for everyone to follow and continue to follow,” Hansen said.

After graduating, Hansen worked for Albion Schools before moving to Traverse City in 1979 to be the college’s music teacher. She then transitioned into a leading role after earning an additional master’s degree in educational administration from Central Michigan University, a role she played for 11 years.

Hansen also played oboe in the Traverse City Symphony for 42 years. Now 68, she retired 10 years ago.

This spring, the invitation to lead the Michigan Marching Band at Homecoming at the nation’s largest stadium first made him think as “a private person living his own life,” Hansen said. But the understanding that the event would mark the 50th anniversary of the Title IX forays and the 125th anniversary of the band itself convinced her.

“It touched me deeply to think that 50 years later, my experience would matter now. It was so moving on that level. I’m so honored to be the center of attention when it’s not normally where I want to be,” Hansen said.

Additionally, the concert came with other opportunities to revisit this period of her life, including a visit to campus where she told her story to potential marching band members, and a webinar panel discussion with d other members of the group during and before this period.

“It was fascinating to hear what the individual perceptions were and what we took with us,” Hansen said.

This Saturday in Ann Arbor, Hansen will lead the “Star-Spangled Banner” with the Michigan Marching Band and the alumni band during the pregame, and fittingly, “About Damn Time” with the bands in the mid -time. Halftime and post-game shows feature programming from all female conductors.

Hansen’s family and friends from Traverse City will be there to cheer him on.

“I’m going to have a blast,” Hansen said. “It will be a great way to end this special adventure.”

Recognizing her role in moving the country forward is a special honor, she said.

“Today other people are pushing us forward as a country,” Hansen said.

Al Holliday and The East Side Rhythm Band are playing SamJam this Saturday.

Dive straight into our observations and distillations of the Springfield music scene to find what you can on our journey of discovery and adventure. This week unfortunately brings the mourning of a great friend and fellow musician in our small part of the world, as well as an assortment of things to do involving live music that our late, but far from forgotten compadre would have enjoyed at maximum.

Sam Draper passed away on September 14, 2022, and with that, we all lost a decades-long driving force on the local scene. From all his bands playing great, so many songs people love to hear, to countless hours of open mic entertainment, Sam was an integral part of what was happening in music in Springfield. But beyond the musical aspect of the performance, he also gave his heart and soul to everything he was involved in, including doing charity work in many fundraisers and deeply and lastingly encouraging the others to make their own music, while creating lasting friendships that have crossed borders. and generations.

I read so many amazing tributes and memorials to Sam on Facebook and each had the same thread about his ability to motivate and uplift those around him. And I believe he has given us the greatest gift (and the answer…) by leading a life of inspiration that survives by flourishing and growing within us from those seeds of love that Sam has planted in his day on earth. Rest well, Sam, and know the music you made through everyone you moved and motivated.

On Saturday, on Carlinville Road at the Macoupin County Fairgrounds, do good and have fun by visiting SamJam. The long-running fundraiser (and fundraiser) is organized by Pete Oswald through the inspiration of his son Sam Oswald, who has suffered from neurofibromatosis since he was four years old. Now, decades after that time, Sam-O continues to deal with illness while living a good life and loving live music. Musical acts for 2022 include Positively 4th Street, Isaiah Christian and the Rebel Saints, Pete Jive, One Way Traffic and Al Holliday & the East Side Rhythm Band. Check the event website at samjam4nf.com for all the other details, then go enjoy.

Now onto Sunday afternoons, where it’s all dog friendly and you can tell someone to go fly a kite in a fun way, when we go wild at Chatham Paws-a-Palooza & Kite Up the Park held from 1 to 6 p.m. at Chatham Community Park. The coordinator and backstage guy is bassist and hard-working musician extraordinaire Jeff Cunningham, who also happens to be a happy dog ​​owner, which means he’s happy to have a dog and the dog is happy too. The event is a fundraiser for “the ongoing construction, landscaping and maintenance of the new Chatham Community Dog Park, which has been funded by previous festivals” and features live music from Dave Littrell, Rock & Roll Sisters and Brandy Kristin and the Revival, plus a non-musical, but equally thrilling performance by world champion St. Louis Disc Dogs. More stuff includes food and drink by the Chatham Jaycees, pet-themed vendors, visual artwork and a pet and owner costume contest, plus a professional kite company who has “kites to fly and buy”, all for a good cause to maintain a nice dog park where the canines can go and bark.

Have a great week, enjoy the downtown car show and be sure to check out all the other live music happening around town.

Music Producers Join Masked Republic to Appear in the Cinelucha Universe https://www.urbanartadventures.com/music-producers-join-masked-republic-to-appear-in-the-cinelucha-universe/ Tue, 20 Sep 2022 19:40:18 +0000 https://www.urbanartadventures.com/music-producers-join-masked-republic-to-appear-in-the-cinelucha-universe/ Two big names in the Latin music industry — Carlos “Spiff TV” Suarez and DJ Luian — are set to partner with Masked Republic in their ambitious efforts to create the Cinelucha transmedia universe (via PWInsider).

Two big names in the Latin music industry — Carlos “Spiff TV” Suarez and DJ Luian — are set to partner with Masked Republic in their ambitious efforts to create the Cinelucha transmedia universe (via PWInsider). With the project incorporating various genres, including sci-fi, fantasy and horror, the company announced that the two producers will enter Cinelucha as the “Hunters de los Muertos” team in order to solve a mystery of horror in classic lucha movie fashion. .

“Lucha libre and lucha films are not only loved in Mexico, where the sport has been declared Intangible Cultural Heritage, but all over the world – whether because of a connection between Hispanic heritages or simply as an integral part of pop culture. When we sought to launch the Cinelucha universe, we wanted to be able to bring in fans from all over the world, and that also includes non-luchador celebrities,” said Ruben Zamora, CEO and Founder of Masked Republic. .

Both producers are fans of professional wrestling and lucha libre, having worked with a number of affiliated projects in the past. “I’m a big fan of comic books and wrestling and vintage El Santo movies and love what Masked Republic has done with their Luchaverse and other entertainment properties,” Spiff said. “It’s going to be fun to see what we cook up”

DJ Luian also weighed in on his feelings about the collaboration. “I’ve always loved comics, from Marvel to Kevin Smith so with Spiff and Masked Republic we’re going to do something super interesting. I know you’re going to love it!”

“The universe of Cinelucha is unlike anything the lucha libre industry has seen before. Natively transmedia, we simultaneously expand the world in print, on screens and in officially licensed products, including tabletop games, RPGs and action figures, so while today we’re thrilled to announce that Spiff and Luian will soon be setting off on their first adventure, fans around the world will soon be able to join them and help dictate the fate of the adventure,” added Kevin Kleinrock, President and COO of Masked Republic. “Will they make the same choices Spiff and Luian made in the comics or will they choose their own path Will they team up with them or seek to fight them?We are about to scratch the surface of what will be possible for global lucha libre fandoms, Spiff and Luian.

Recording artist and actor Quincy Brown has just released a music video for a track perfect for any weekend. On Saturday, September 17, the star released her visual for “JETTY.”

In it, Q wears a purple and white coupe — complete with a matching car — while spitting out living his best life that includes everything from his money moves to rolling good weed and vibing with the good. He raps:

“Power Book III” yeah I’m new on the scene / Got my plan A to Z / And when shit hit the fan, call that man, it’s me, it’s Q to B / I I’ll send you my PayPal/ I don’t want to be your pen pal/ You never heard of me?/ Have you ever seen a candle in the rain?/ That means I’m out.

Tryna cop a house, still rent / I stayed home, my girl out / I like your PH girl girl girl girl not your penthouse / Where are we going? / With the current and… as long as we smoke / Yeah yeah, just say you’re ready / So it’s a betty / Meet me at the pier

Speaking about the inspiration for the track, Quincy told REVOLT, “Don’t expect the unexpected. I am always inspired by finding difference and displaying a different perspective. When most people hear “JETTY” they may think it’s slang for a private jet. What I’m really talking about in the song is meeting me on an actual pier. Hence the placement of the video clip…

Although his lyrics on “JETTY” aren’t about flying off to an exotic location, after all, don’t misrepresent it. Q loves adventure. In an interview with PopSugar last year, Quincy revealed the best vacation he’s ever had.

“The best trip I’ve ever taken had to be my first trip to Japan. I don’t know what year it was anymore, I want to say 2014, it was with my mother [Kim Porter]. It was a trip that I had been trying to do for about five years and had really, really planned for it,” he said. “It literally exceeded all my expectations of what I thought Japan would be like… So if you want to talk about vacation, we’re talking about Mykonos, Greece.”

Watch the “JETTY” music video below!

Disney music is incomplete without breaking out your dancing shoes. We sing along to our favorite Disney tunes, but I don’t think we dance to them often enough. Movement, self-expression, freedom…dance. I am by no means a dancer, but I believe that music and movement combined are emotionally, mentally and physically healthy. It can bring together families, couple couples and standing children clapping with joy. Our Disney Parks & Resorts are a gateway to enjoying DANCE. You can dance at Walt Disney World; if you hear the music playing, dance!

I think dance went into decline in the 80s. Disco died, Michael Jackson’s Thriller moves were all the rage, and then it was gone. Young adults no longer hang out in nightclubs to dance; the children no longer memorized and practiced dances in their bedrooms during sleepovers. There were a multitude of reasons, AIDS scared people away from nightclubs, the disco was no longer cool, and video games and the latchkey generation replaced games and unplanned movements in the outdoors. I believe the lack of dancing has contributed to a deterioration in mental health and well-being. Dance is fun, playful and essential to our mental well-being. It creates happiness. And Disney is happiness. Don’t Let Dance Die at Disney; let’s find him and start our dance! Here are my Top 5 favorite places to dance at Walt Disney World!

DISNEY JUNIOR

Early childhood has never been so beautiful with Disney Junior. Dance, sing and cheer with your kids’ favorite Disney Junior characters during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party 2022 called Disney Junior Jam at Storybook Circus. Find Disney Junior on Tour in your local cities. Bring your little ones to Disney’s Hollywood Studios during the Disney Junior Dance Party! Doc McStuffins and Vampirina will knock you out of your shells and get you going!

Country Bear Jamboree

I was relaxing at this classic attraction, and every guest enjoyed cheering, swinging, and stomping our favorite Country Bear traditions. This time a dance broke out. You heard it, not a fight, no, but a dance. How funny! The adults were dancing on impromptu parties just as the lights came back on. Smiling and happy adults. This is what we need the most.

Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway

There is a room in this attraction: Daisy Duck’s dance hall. Guests remain seated in the attraction vehicle as you enter its synchronized dance classes. Daisy will teach you the rumba, and EVERYONE dances, even the attraction vehicle! It’s my favorite attraction and Daisy is lovely. Fun Easter egg alert: find her duck water next to her dance stage! Shake those tail feathers!

Guest Sydney Russell (2019) dances her heart out with the Disney Band on Main Street, USA

Concerts & Shows

The Eat to the Beat Concert Series on the stage of the America Gardens Theater at Epcot features music and dancing during Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festivals. The last one I went to, I noticed passers-by dancing in front of the American Adventure Pavilion on their upcoming World Pavilion, enjoying the music. Walking is not an option; it’s about dancing here.

During Disney nightly shows, you can still rock and dance to your favorite music while watching Enchantment or Harmonious.

Resort Pools

On site, you can still find dance competitions and games in the pools of the Disney complex. Children enjoy the sun, swimming, music and dancing, all combined with the Cast Members in the lead. They walk, conga, and create wonderful poolside memories for families of all ages, but I especially find the little ones to enjoy them. I especially enjoyed watching the kids dance at the Art of Animation Resort pool. There is no afternoon siesta there!

These are my five favorite places to dance at Walt Disney World! Where do you like to dance in Parks & Resorts? Take those two left feet and dance like you’re at your friend’s wedding; enjoy and remember: If you hear music, dance!
