Student group - Fara Enclave (photo by César Alvarez) In 2008 I was asked to teach a single course in the Music Tech division of the Creative Arts and Technology Department at Bloomfield College called "Digital Audio Engineering 1." I approached the class as a composer, producer and sound artist assuming that most of my students would be primarily interested in figuring out the studio
Public Service Broadcasting are everything I love about music, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. They love their art form, and are willing to sweat over it to make it perfect, and that’s alright by me. By Darren Saunders
Canadian Austronaut Chris Hadfield is very likely the coolest person on the planet in the universe. He's been uploading some incredible videos from the Space Station as he answers peoples' question about how things works in space. This so far is my favorite. Watch what happens as he soaks a hand towel full of water and attempts to wring it out. -daNk
Because of this inspiring quote of Bill Gates, till now I'm working hard to earn money. I believe that being born poor in not a sin but a chance for us to compare what being rich is. It may take time to be rich but the road to riches will surely give us full of life experience like financial problems, people laughing at you, mocking you and more! But when the fruit that you saw has been harvest then all the people will just shut up and say wow how did you do it! Life is full [...]
There may be full of trials, problem and etc in life. But one thing I'm sure I really really love you baby and I want to be with you forever. Today I may not be good enough for you but every moment I will seek for God's help to fulfill my dream. My only dream is to give you food, shelter, cloth, healthy, warm hugs, my time, happiness and to live long enough with me. Note - I don't own the picture and I just saw this picture in FB.
I just saw this image in the facebook and wanted to share it. Written upon the image what are the aspect of being success and being unsuccessful in life. Hope this picture and help you to change to the right attitude.
Egg has always been one of my favorite dish, not knowing that there's an easy way to define the quality of it. Wonder how the bad egg came from, it is from the genes? Lol So be sure to test the eggs before you cook it.
Contrary to what you might believe if you spend time on Soundcloud , or Pitchfork , there is a method to the madness of writing music. Music theory is not an easy sell to a teenager with their first electric-guitar, or a freshly pirated DAW, but Hooktheory has manages to present the hows and whys of what makes "good music" sound "good." Highlighting chord progressions of popular songs and overlaying visuals of how everything relates on standard musical scales, Hooktheory provides a fun and interactive way to learn why the music we enjoy hearing sounds the way that it does.

One of Reddit's most popular subreddits, Explain Like I’m Five , has been transformed into its own original web series, with a debut entry explaining Friederich Nietzsche and the philosophy of existentialism . Like the subreddit, the series focuses on explaining complex topics in ways that even five-year-olds can understand. Reddit general manager Erik Martin, aka hueypriest, (for those in the know) told The Hollywood Reporter the series is “about encouraging the reddit community and bigger community of producers, filmmakers and animators out there [...]
Don't take it from me, but listen to the likes of Bill Gates (Microsoft/Philanthropy), Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), Jack Dorsey (Square), Tony Hsieh (Zappos), Drew Houston (Dropbox), Gabe Newell (Valve/Steam), and um, Chris Bosh (Not LeBron James or Dwayne Wade) and Will.i.am (sometime hologram, occasional Black Eyed Pea) on the importance of learning to computer program in school. The effort is driven by Code.org , part of Khan Academy, which also has several great resources . Basic programming - or at least the ability to better read and write code - is on [...]

Priester, a fixture on the Seattle jazz scene for some 35 years, recently retired from the Cornish College of the Arts - where he had taught after establishing a separate legend in music.

C.G.P. Grey helps you on this one - just like he always does.
I was at an event last night where the CEO of WiTricity demonstrated wireless electricity, a technology invented at MIT. It was astounding, mind-blowing, and you could feel - pardon the pun - the electric excitement flow throughout the room at the site of powering electrical devices wirelessly. Anyway, Boston Magazine examines the change underway at MIT , a university that was once considered a school for nerds but is now the epicenter of modern life. MIT has long been the home of the nerd whose idea of fun [...]
“As technology changes, so do students. So should classrooms, and so should our methods of teaching. In a few short years, connectivity has gone from a technological novelty to a daily necessity. It’s how our culture communicates, and our children are at the forefront of its use. Understanding those tools – and how to integrate them into learning – is an integral step in defining our future.” - George Lucas , revealing his plan to give nearly all of the $4 billion raised by his sale of LucasFilms to educational charities.
Learning through sound is a relaxation for me. I can sit back and just listen . Unfortunately, music seems to be taking up most of my time these days, but I plan to change that now. Since my listening routine with music is mostly on SoundCloud, integrating storytellers & educators into my SoundCloud stream might even out my bias towards music. So I've taken to SoundCloud to find & filter the most fascinating SoundClouders around. I've rummaged through Voices , the Fellowship program and their " Suggested users " to [...]

"For years, nothing seemed capable of turning around New Dorp High School’s dismal performance—not firing bad teachers, not flashy education technology, not after-school programs. So, faced with closure, the school’s principal went all-in on a very specific curriculum reform, placing an overwhelming focus on teaching the basics of analytic writing , every day, in virtually every class. What followed was an extraordinary blossoming of student potential, across nearly every subject—one that has made New Dorp a model for educational reform."
