Re: String Players NEEDED: will consider other instruments as well

String Players NEEDED: Starting August 2017 – will consider other instruments as well

The Facts TV/Web/Radio series taped in New York City is looking for a cello, viola, and/or violin player for two episodes of this weekly series. We want the player to be both a good reader and an inventive improviser: the music is not usually tonal, no discernible steady beat, and improviser. Interest and experience in one or more of the following: free jazz, modern art music, classical music, baroque music

The music is original; the core ensemble is Lenore Von Stein, composer, narrator, soprano; Andrew Bolotowsky, flute; and Beth Griffith, soprano. Tapings and rehearsals are in Manhattan; 2017-2018 musician stipends are $15.00 per taping including one rehearsal – total rehearsal and taping musician time per project is 6 hours

The Facts, currently in its seventh season, is broadcast and streamed weekly in Manhattan on Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN), Verizon and RCN and archived on the web on several social media sites including YouTube, iTunes, Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, Pinterest, Stitcher Radio, as well as our own website, www.1687.org.

Project Description: The Facts juxtaposes fictional episodes (made of composed and improvised music and words played by classical and jazz musicians) about people navigating circumstances and internal conflicts with non-fiction episodes of conversation between thinkers on global issues. Ideas from episodes crisscross throughout the series via synergies in point of view or theme.

Here are some links:

Re: Volunteer Project: RESPONSIVE EAR PROJECT for THE FACTS

Volunteer Project: RESPONSIVE EAR PROJECT for THE FACTS http://1687.org/wordpress_4/

We are looking for volunteers, consultants and beginners, to work remotely for 3 months (8-50 hours per month) on a public relations project for the 7-year-old weekly TV/Web/Radio series THE FACTS.

Tasks
Public Relations – goals include reaching cultural writers and media outlets
Design public relations program: methodologies, strategies, timeline, budget
Publicity – Choose advertising venues and follow-up
Distribution- Increase online and offline presence
Graphics/Web Designer- Update and maintain our website, distribution, and social media pages

THE FACTS, is an example of 21st century fine art available on mass media, conceived and produced by an artist who has watched a lot of TV working with a staff of twenty people in New York City and, virtually, in Europe and the United States. Everything on the show is original. THE FACTS is an always evolving, non-commercial (probably) artwork.

Our productions are unusual in terms of fine art detail/ambitions and very limited cash resources. These factors have hampered our business development. Our publicity and distribution is mainly done on-line. Fundraising is through personal contacts, institutions and online appeals.

WHAT THE FACTS IS/HAS
Original stories via unusually telling interactions between words, art music, and pictures.
The stories are about individuals dealing with external (e.g. new trauma) and internal circumstances (e.g. old trauma)
The composed and improvised expressive music are distinct pieces of information story-wise, e.g. unspoken assumptions
Stories about power sharing or lack thereof
Stories about why somebody loves/likes somebody else.
WHAT THE FACTS ISN’T
Unoriginal or hard to understand
Blind to effects of circumstance Good Guys & Bad Guys
Containing music that is predictable, familiar, or easy to hum (at least not yet)
Propaganda, purposely shallow
Stories that don’t pay attention to why two people like each other.

We need smart, brave expressions to soften anxiety and open us up. THE FACTS is part of this vital force – to check it out – www.1687.org or “Slices of The Facts” You Tube (https://www.youtube.com/user/1687org) Stitcher Radio
