Audio Podcast 008

In this weeks episode we meet up with the good people at Iris Theatre and they talk about their showcast on the 17th March. We also speak to Adam and talk about their Mash-up Cabaret on the 20th March. Mash-Up Cabaret sees an amazing line-up of West End performers singing songs from the shows "mashed-up", in brand new arrangements, with songs from the world of Pop, Jazz and R&B. Acts are accompanied by a fantastic 5-piece fusion band and a talented ensemble. And finally, we speak to the gorgeous Helena Blackman about her new CD The Sound of Rodgers & Hammerstein.

theonlytime: The Sound of Music (Limited Edition Collector's Set)- $39.49 (one day sale!)

The Sound of Music (Limited Edition Collector's Set) [Blu-ray/DVD Combo] is on sale today only for $39.49 at Amazon (yesterday's price was $60.99). I've had my eye on this box set for quite some time and am so glad the price finally dropped low enough for me to buy it.

Just thought I'd give fellow Julie Andrews/Sound of Music fans the heads up!

sneakyangel: Ashleigh Gray and Chris Passey Interviews

This week we're delighted to bring you to great interviews. We speak to the talented Chris Passey about his new charity project. Later in the show we speak with Ashleigh Gray, we speak about Wicked and what she is up to. We also have exciting news from Perfect Pitch Musicals.

About Chris Passey
A self taught pianist, Chris is a West Midlands based Composer/Lyricist, Musical Director and Vocal Coach.

Chris has a natural love for Musical Theatre and having trained with the National Youth Theatre, pursued this passion straight from Sixth Form College. In late 2006, Chris entered Chicago Rock Cafe's 'Rock Idol' contest, judged by Carrie and David Grant. Out of six thousand contestants and several National heats, Chris came second to Keith Jack, who went on to appear in BBC1's Any Dream Will Do.

About Ashleigh Gray
Ashleigh Gray is a British musical theatre performer who recently appeared as the standby for Elphaba in the London production of Wicked.

In 2004, Gray made her professional début as Kim in the UK national tour of the Boy George musical Taboo. She was also a soloist in the concert Notes from New York. Prior to this she played the role of Kirsty in Only You Can Save Mankind at the Edinburgh Festival. In 2006, she appeared in NHS the Musical at the Drum Theatre Plymouth and covered Rizzo and Jan in the UK national tour of Grease. In 2007, Gray performed the role of Emily in the European première of Myths and Hymns and again that year at the Finborough theatre.

On July 16, 2007, she joined the London company of the musical Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, where she performed in the ensemble and understudied the role of Elphaba. She played her first performance as Elphaba on February 6, 2008. She then became standby for the role of Elphaba, replacing Cassidy Janson on June 9, 2008. She left the show on March 27, 2010, with her last performance as Elphaba taking place on March 12.

sneakyangel: Ordinary Days podcast

Last week, I was lucky enough to interview my favourite ever Elphaba, Alexia Khadime. She is currently in a new show called Ordinary Days, which the interview is about. We also interview Alexia's co-star, Julie Atherton and American writer/composer and all round musical genius Adam Gwon. Ordinary Days was originally performed in New York, and after a run at the Finborough Theatre has now moved to the Trafalgar Studios.

And for all you Alexia fans, keep an eye on Stage Left or stageleft_uk as, fingers crossed, we will be releasing Alexia's full interview, where she talks about Wicked and other moving topics.

wagrobanite: Research paper help

One of my classes this semester is Music Infomatics and we have to do a research paper. Here are the guidelines:

Write a single-spaced (BTW, who does single spaced anymore? Seriously?), APA style, 7 - 10 page research paper based on a subtopic in this course. Cite LIS and music literature and research journals to support your conclusions

Here's basically what my professor says is Music Infomatics:

The broad research area related to music information is known as Music Informatics. MI is emerging interdisciplinary research areas dealing with the production, distribution, and consumption of music (especially in digital formats).

MI research subtopics include music technologies such as iPods, peer-to-peer application, digital audio editors, online music search engines and Music Information Retrieval (MIR); cognitive, social, and economic issues in music; as well as improvisation and music performance. MI studies this range of topics not only to better design music search and retrieval systems, but to develop a fundamental understanding of the nature of music and its associated behaviors as well. Because MI is an emerging discipline, it is a very dynamic area of research with many competing viewpoints.

I am thinking of doing something Broadway related and I'm thinking about titling my paper "The Business of Broadway". I am specifically focusing on musicals. I would like to look at the cost of doing musicals today; and maybe looking at why Broadway isn't doing as well as it could be (reasons that I've thought about is ticket prices, the economy, stereotypes, lack of new or interesting ideas, location). 

So I'm asking you all:
a) do you think there are sources out there for it?
b) Enough of a topic to do a 7-10 page paper?
c) Know of any sources right off the top of your head that you think would be useful?
