AIR

July 11, 2007 at 1:51 am (AIR, Artists, Celebrity, Concert, Electronic, Music, Music Videos)

24th July going on stage at Turkcell Kuruçeşme Arena in ISTANBUL.
For detailed information about the concert click here to be directed to the ticketmaster’s web page.

AIR

Air’s music is often referred to as electronica; their form of electronic music was influenced by the synthesizer sounds of the 1970s such as Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, and Francis Lai. Other influences are psychedelic rock pioneers Pink Floyd; Krautrockers Tangerine Dream; Jean-Jacques Perrey (although there are some echoes of dance music styles in the production); and French crooner Serge Gainsbourg.

Air uses many of their studio instruments (like Moog synthesizers, the Korg MS-20, Wurlitzer and Vocoder) live on stage, where their ability to improvise is more clearly highlighted. The band performs the well-known tracks from the albums live as extended or altered versions. Air often works together, both in the studio and live on stage, with artists like Beth Hirsch (Moon Safari), Françoise Hardy (“Jeanne”), Jean-Jacques Perrey (“Cosmic Bird”), Gordon Tracks (“Playground Love” and “Easy Going Woman” – Gordon Tracks is a pseudonym of the french singer Thomas Mars from Phoenix), Beck (10 000 Hz Legend), on the 2004 tour with Dave Palmer and drummer Earl Harvin and on the 2007 tour with Earl Harvin, Vincent Taurelle and Steve Jones.

DAFT PUNK

June 24, 2007 at 3:20 am (Artists, Celebrity, Daft Punk, Digital, Electronic, Music, Music Videos, Videos)


“The greatest electronic dance music band of all times!”

Daft Punk is the collective name of Paris musicians Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter. The duo is considered one of the most successful electronic music collaborations of all time, both in album sales and in critical acclaim.

Starting their music career with indie-rock band Darlin, the duo soon added drum machines and synthesizers to their equipment and formed the roots of the sound of Daft Punk today. Their first album “Homework” was regarded as an innovative synthesis of Techno, house, acid house and electro styles, and is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential dance music albums of the nineties. They also produced a series of videos for this album, some became legends like “Da Funk” and “Around the world”.

Their second album “Discovery”, which had more of a synthpop-oriented style, was released in 2001. This album reached number 2 in UK charts. Samples from the late ’70s to early ’80s were heavily used on the album. These playful samples turned into major hits like “One More Time”, “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” winning them an even broader audience.

In 2003 they produced a feature-length animated film “Interstella 5555:The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem”, carrying their musical talent to artistic representation. They also released the album “Daft Club” that features a collection of remixes previously made to promote the film. Two years later they came out with their latestst album “Human After All” and once again became a popular among fans and Djs.

Amy&Shirley

This is Amy Winehouse on left and Shirley Bassey on right. They are both singers with strong and beatiful voices. Their genres are also similar so and one of my favorite to chill. There is a small difference between them, Shirley Bassey born in 1937 and Amy Winehouse is 1983. Thats quiet a big age difference.
