The Nightlight Cinema

Nightlight Cinema in the news Akron’s new indie art house theatre is now under construction! #nightlightcinema #akron

Show them some love on their Kickstarter so they can put the finishing touches on the new movie theatre which is set to open this summer.

The Nightlight will be operated by the nonprofit Akron Film+Pixel, which has produced over 130 events since 2008 by partnering with the Akron Art Museum, Akron-Summit County Public Library, and Summit Artspace. Akron Film+Pixel has produced over 130 film events in the past six years, without ever cancelling one. And now they are committed to opening The Nightlight. Just 9 bucks will get you a ticket to use for any post opening night movie and will show the dedicated mostly volunteer Akron Film and Pixel team that you appreciate what they are doing. SO lets show them how much we love what they’ve already been doing and how much we look forward to this.

Arpita Kumar – My Dear Americans

March 29, 2014 § Leave a comment

Arpita Kumar sits down with Cory Sheldon to discuss her new short film My Dear Americans.

A short narrative funded by Film Independent and PBS, My Dear Americans is about a Sikh woman’s defiant spirit. A recent immigrant to the U.S, Tejpreet is reluctant to embrace her new American identity. In contrast, her husband celebrates everything that mildly reeks of America. On America’s most patriotic holiday, the fourth of July, they have a threatening racist encounter that crushes the Sikh man’s enthusiastic spirit. Witnessing her husband’s devastation, Tejpreet makes a choice against hate and turns the situation around, if only momentarily.

Reblogging this post from John Davis. Thoughts on the soft version of the Buchla synthesizer, called the Aalto and another virtual instrument from Madrona labs called Kaivo. Checkout the controller for the Kaivo.

Aalto rectangle There are some soft synths or plug-ins I’ve bought where I could have conceivably sprung for the hardware version instead.  But there’s no way I could have ever afforded a Buchla synthesizer – until Madrona labs came out with their Aalto software synthesizer, which is inspired by the designs of Don Buchla, who invented the modern synthesizer around the same time that Robert Moog did, but never aimed for the (relatively) mass market crossover that the Minimoog achieved.  Several years ago, I read complaints on Gearlutz and other gear forums that no one had attempted to emulate a Buchla, and speculation that maybe it couldn’t be done.  One look at the following Youtube video of the real deal shows why the prospect looked daunting:

For some reason, I’m more drawn to use the sequencer on this virtual instrument than others.  It can be hard to shoehorn it’s massive scope and…

Thanks Esquire Magazine for the exclusive premiere of Best Friends’ Love by Kate Tucker and the Sons of Swedendirected by Miriam Bennett (Moving Studio Productions). The video was filmed in Nashville, Tennessee at Cannery Ballroom and doubled as a wrap party for the visual album for The SHAPE the COLOR the FEEL and featured many of the filmmakers, artists, and other creatives involved in that project. The album is delicious and best experienced on 180 gram vinyl pressed in Nashville’s historic United Record Pressing. Each album also includes one limited edition art print from photographer Jessie Sara English who produced a series of images – one for each song.
