News  Notes from Alley

In My Life ~ October 9

 

 

“In My Life” – marking John Lennon’s birthday, here’s a “John song” from The Beatles – live-in-the-studio video from Allison Crowe

 

 

 

 

"The original (lower-res) video has been enjoyed over one million times on YouTube -  Thanks, in no small measure, to film-maker Alex Postowoi and creaw, and audio engineer/producer Larry "Turtle" Anschell capturing faithfully the beauty of this song and performance.

Throw Your Arms Around Me ~ October 8

 

 

Love is the answer.

 

Inviting “Throw Your Arms Around Me”, Allison Crowe’s 16 Songs wraps around this tune from songwriter Mark Seymour and mates in Hunters and Collectors (1981–1998, 2013–2014) an Australian band noted for its “blend of pub rock and art-funk”.

 

Throw Your Arms Around Me from Allison Crowe on Vimeo.

 

Pairing is with visuals from “L’Atalante”, the poetic, beautiful, loving and loveable 1934 film from French director Jean Vigo (1905 – 1934).

 

Musical hugs are supplied here by Canada's Allison Crowe (voice, piano, engineer), Billie Woods (acoustic guitar, bgs), Dave Baird (bass, bgs), Laurent Boucher (percussion), Larry Anschell (engineer), & Kayla Schmah (producer).

Unexpected Diversion Ahead ~ October 7

 

 

Stephen Fry, the wonderful English comedian, actor, writer, presenter, and activist, has open-sourced his newest memoir, “More Fool Me”.

 

Fry and his publisher, Penguin Random House, cordially invite us all to “reinterpret it in any language or form, including text, data visualisation, app, audio and 3D modelling. Samples of text, metadata, imagery and audio from the new book and Fry’s previous memoir The Fry Chronicles, are available for download via a special WeTransfer Plus page. And Penguin Books is challenging people to turn them into their own innovative takes on Fry’s memoirs.”

 

 

 

Allison’s mash-up brings together Stephen’s narration, with her music, and the filmic essence of Buster Keaton, from his silent era classic, “The General” – on the selected text’s theme of mental health.
