KXUA: SXSW Photo Recap 2014

If you are into music, chances are you have probably heard of SXSW. It is a glorious time of year when the music industry descends upon Austin.  For older artists, it is a great way to connect with younger, festival-going generations, labels, and your fellow artists. For up-and-coming artists, SXSW provides an outlet to share their music to all who are within earshot.

Over the years, the SXSW has drastically affected countless acts, making it a music-industry-mecca, of sorts.

Check back this week for a post of video highlights and to see interviews with artists, including Phantogram, Miami Horror, Mas Ysa, Royal Canoe, Milagres, Classixx, Speak, UME, and many more.

Local event organizer B.U.M.P. will be throwing an end of the summer dance party to blowoff steam before students get back to the daily grind.

The party is themed simply to “Express Yourself” (cue Charles Wright).  Take that for what it’s worth and show up in your own skin, spandex suit, 3-piece suit, or full on candy gear.

The show will be rocking at The Phoenix (formerly Rogue) 17 August, located at 402 W. Dickson St.  It starts at 9 pm and runs into the morning till 2 am.

The show will feature local production duo, appropriately named, thaDUEL, and they will be accompanied by DJs Dirk Digital and DJ DUBz

Episode 20: Teri Card Heller

This week sees local composer Teri Card Heller guest hosting with me! We take a little bit of time to talk about her music, and listen to music she’s written and music she likes. Furthermore, she’s got a show this Thursday (the 12th, at 8 pm) at Teatro Scarpino! She’s really cool (and the first composer to endorse Over Mozart’s Dead Body!), so make sure to listen and go to her show.

Here’s her official bio: Teri Card Heller is a local classical composer who works from her studio in Fayetteville, Arkansas, where she composes for mostly films and chamber concerts. In the majority of her music, Teri aims to express human universals – emotions, life experiences, thoughts, and dreams – through both the abstract and programmatic nature of music. With a broad range of influences – including Minimalism, Baroque, various 19th and 20th century Russian and French composers, film music, Balinese gamelan, and African rhythms – Teri enjoys writing for any ensemble and medium. Teri has a Master of Fine Arts in music composition from California Institute of the Arts. She has studied through scholarships in Ireland and Japan, has had a performance of her large-ensemble work, “Glorious Youth,” at RedCat Disney Hall in downtown LA, and was a grant recipient and film music intern in LA through the “Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.” Her music is often described as intense and moving – with rhythmic pulses, lyrical melodies, and moody harmonies.
