Saludo navideño de Ed en FAC

Etiquetas: ,

Ed dejó un mensaje de fin de año en el website de Featured Artists Coalition, en su carácter de miembro de la comisión directiva.

Feliz navidad, gente buena del FAC y demás…

He pasado la mayor parte de este año en el estudio, trabajando en nuestro nuevo album …. me es imposible lidiar con cualquier otra cosa mientras grabamos … es muy demandante y no puedo hacer girar todos los platos…

A pesar de esto, pasé unos días brillantes con algunos estudiantes en Dartmouth y Falmouth … siempre he tenido cierto escepticismo con las escuelas que ofrecen programas de música populares, pero me alegra decir que fue mas como una escuela de arte. Hay muchos músicos jóvenes y geniales por ahí haciendo cosas muy atrevidas, música muy innovadora y emocionante, y muchos profesores alentandolos y desafiandolos. Aprendí tanto de ellos como ellos de mí… de hecho no estoy seguro sobre qué aprendieron de mi, pero la pasamos muy bien

Más por venir en 2011 – que tengan un muy buen año y mucha suerte para todos y cada uno de ustedes

    Hi all!!

    SO as some (many?) of you know, after the incredible gig Radiohead played back in January to raise money for Haiti after that horrible earthquake, there has been a huge effort to create a multicam DVD to… – well, you can never ‘re-create’ this magical performance, especially given that only 1400 people got to attend it, so the are scarce and precious. But one can at least try! So we (formengr, andrea and myself) tried to collect every frame out there to get the best coverage possible… and share it with all of you.

    But remember – it was a SPECIAL show with a SPECIAL purpose – to raise badly needed funds for those who lived through the devastation. And it seemed only appropriate that the DVD should carry on some of these goals. So on the behalf of our little team of three, I contacted the band/management to tell them about our project and asked to name a charity of their choice – so that those downloading the DVD could donate some money to it – however much they can (‘cause we trust Radiohead’s choices don’t we?). We were thrilled to hear that Radiohead supported our efforts :-) and named Haiti to be the ‘beneficiary’ of such donations. They also chose Oxfam – who originally helped to organize the show – as the organization that would handle it. So I asked Oxfam if they could create a DEDICATED LINK for us, Radiohead fans, so in the end, we would be able to know how much we have raised and let the band know too!…. I am ecstatic to tell you that it all happened!

    Here we are –

    Finally, Kii Arens – the author of the original ‘bandaid’ poster for the show – stepped forward to create artwork for our DVD! You see it on top of the post but the real hi-rez file is included in the DVD (so don’t rip this blog :)) – thanks, Kii!!

    Andrea made a very different alternative art –
    Enormous thanks to RADIOHEAD for EVERYTHING, Chris Hufford (Chris, you’re awesome!) and Bob Ferguson at Oxfam America (I owe you multiple drinks!) for making it fall into place (uhm – did I just say this?)

    In this project, we have 14 video tapers, 4 audio tapers (everyone is listed on all art and all info files), more audio mixing by hoserama and an astounding amount of editing work by formengr (love you, form!) – I feel like we are all thanking each other, and it feels great! So THANKS again!!

    Here we go:
