Mike Gallagher: Salzburg Is Famous for Two Things
"Well, thanks, Carl, greetings from Salzburg, Austria, without a doubt, the most magnificent magical enchanted city I've ever seen in my life. I'm so glad we got to come to Salzburg. Of course, Salzburg is famous for two things for the tourists. Wolf Wolfgang, Amadeus Mozart. This was his birthplace, and where he spent much of his life. And of course, the sound of music, some scenes that were filmed there. The architecture, though, beautiful churches and cathedrals everywhere. This is a beautiful, beautiful Austrian city nestled on the river and with the Alps and the beautiful fortress believe it or not, overlooking the city that encloses all of it. Just the history, the charm, and of course everything is Mozart Mozart Mozart. This is where he was born. See this house here, with the yellow painting on the outside. That's the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. He lived here for a number of years. He moved to Vienna, became disenchanted with Salisbury because he felt they didn't recognize his greatness and wow, his greatness, of course, prolific and felt the world over. Interesting facts about sound of music. We saw a couple of the places where the movie was filmed, including when Julie Andrews came running through the courtyard with her guitar. We saw where they had the big music festival where the von trapp family flat fleas at the end of the movie for the big dramatic finish, but our tour guide explained that locals don't really like the American version of the sound of music because the sound of music was the story of Maria von trapp was originally captured in the early 1950s by a German film. So the Broadway musical, which was mounted in 1959, and then the movie a few years later, for them was just a reprise and they didn't care. People in Austria and even Germany, they didn't care very much for the sound of music. Believe it
Who Was Tom Parker to Elvis?
"Now let's go to Tom Hanks, America's most beloved actor. I'm not going to rank him, but I'm going to say it with some confidence. He is America's most beloved actor and he's a villain. Him and Denzel like number one and number two. I would say so Tom Hanks is interesting in this. And he's interesting in ways that the movie is interesting. So I've heard people complain about the way this movie centers Tom Parker. Basically, the way the movie is built, the framing device is Tom park colonel Tom Parker is on his deathbed. And he is essentially complaining that he has been treated as a villain in the Elvis Presley story that he's playing first out. And that he's called thief and told that he's been stealing from all of us all these years. And the way the film is kind of structured is Tom Parker says, no, I'm not, I'm not a villain. I'm just a normal guy, like you. But I'm also great. Like Elvis. And it's structured, again, this isn't a musical biopic superhero movie. But the way that Tom Parker is used here, it reminded me of Amadeus. The movie Amadeus. He is essentially salieri here. He's the normal, he's the normal guy through whom Elvis is greatness is reflected,

Audioburst CEO Amir Hirsh on the Benefits of the 'Burst'
"Know you rabbit hole trying to find if you put in A good search engine like what you guys have over there and audio burst the kind of homes in on what you're looking for so you don't get a lot of hodgepodge out there. Why is that so much. Challenge out there and how did you. How did you and your company Overcome that challenge to to make it make it more more easier. More user friendly win ones are searching for different content so when we look at that problem we mapped multiple challenges that exist in audio mailing or that doesn't exist in texts and in other mediums mainly texts that we're accustomed to today In discovering and finding audio there are several challenges. One audio is usually produced in long forms. It's the thirty minutes or one hour. Long of a podcast. It's a forty five minute long over show and win. I want to hear something specific. Or even if i want to subscribe to podcasts. I wanna get a taste before. I wanna understand. What is being spoken. I cannot listen to the full show halfway through it. Understand that you know what. That's not exactly what i was looking for. Preferred different opinion or a different type of reporting so the first thing sold is that we've cut it into what we call burst into a short clips into specific items. So when you search. I don't give the beginning of the podcast you're brought to that burst that section that answered your question and you can get the exact answer that you're looking for especially in today's short attention span that humanity has you get the essence of what you're looking for and then you can make the decision whether you want to go the full thing you want to listen to the long form the full show or you want to listen to another result. Perhaps there's a better pocket that will answer your needs so the first challenge that made audio difficult to Fine to discover was to make it more concise to the point than we thought that by cutting it into bursts.

The mystery Of Paul Amadeus Dienach
"Story begins in nineteen seventeen in switzerland. Paul is a swiss teacher and academic enthusiast in his twenties he pursued humanitarian studies cultural history and something called classical philology which is basically the study of ancient greek and latin written language. But now paul's thirty one years old and he teaches mostly history and as far as we know he's fairly healthy but then one day out of nowhere hall just falls asleep presumably. It's in the middle of a normal everyday activity because his family and friends tried to rouse him. But paul doesn't wake up this freaks everyone out so they take him to the hospital. The doctors say paul has slipped into a coma but they can't find anything physically wrong with him and paul stays like this for fifteen days until finally he wakes up. It's snowing outside and the second. Paul opens his eyes. His mother falls onto the floor. She is sobbing with relief. Halls a little disoriented when he wakes up but that he seems buying doctors still can't figure out what caused the two week coma but after a few months. Paul seems to be back to normal. Everyone hopes it just a weird one time incident but four years later in may of nineteen twenty one. It happens again. Paul falls asleep and once more. His friends and family can't wait kim. Only this time it lasts longer than a few weeks. A month passes and still nothing at this point. Things are looking even more dire than before. The doctors have to put paul on a feeding tube to keep them alive. Meanwhile his aging mother and his other friends and family continue to visit him. All they can do is pray paul spontaneously wake up but another month goes by and people start to give up hope. His mother even dies during this time. Presumably of natural causes still. It's got to be just the worst way to go knowing that your son is in a mysterious coma even if he does wake. You didn't even get to say goodbye. Finally paul does wake up in may of nineteen twenty two one year after he fell asleep. He opens his eyes. Paul's completely awake and aside from his muscles not being used in a while. He's fully functioning but again doctors have no idea what was wrong with him or if it will happen again. Worst of all someone has to tell him about his mother's passing which breaks his heart. And maybe it's this grief that's weighing on paul. Because from the moment he wakes up. He's acting cagey as he won't say anything about what he experienced during the coma. Which makes sense if there was nothing to talk about but from the way polls refusing to answer his questions. It seems like maybe something did happen while he was unconscious. And that whatever it is he literally doesn't want anyone to know and paul. Strange behaviour doesn't end there because as the months go by he basically becomes a recluse he wants see or talk to any friends or family but from what they can tell. Paul seems to be preoccupied with getting his affairs. In order he cleans out his deceased. Mother's house takes care of his inheritance issues and sell some land other than that. He keeps himself so busy with manual labor. It's as if he's purposefully preoccupying himself and he prefers to spend his evenings alone reading philosophy books and to be fair. Paul is a teacher and he was probably a big reader before but he more invested than ever in his studies specifically anything having to do with philosophy and he's spending a lot of time talking to his priest which is a pretty new development.
Groundcovers With Ken Druse
"You know that I used to love for its variegated sort of silvery and green leaves. kind of almost looks like an IV ish Gr-. vining but low prostrate thing lamb the astrum galley. Dolan Yellow Archangel which you know thirty or more years ago when I planted it, it was like a coveted thing. And now it's on the invasive list in the North West and it's invading into woodland's as the climate warms. In. The Northeast and you're starting to see it on the invasive list in in new areas and so forth and I, have suddenly forty miles of it in my garden because it no longer stays. You know within a reasonable range. So I mean maybe we should I say what's the ground cover and what do we want to use anyway, right Okay The me okay. I. Think a ground cover is a plant that increases in numbers over time but does not run away or spread too fast it's usually we'd suppressing that's what we hope and we have a couple of those. And you think of ground cover is something you can walk on, but there's not a whole lot of plants that will tolerate. Being walked on besides grass lawn but a ground cover is anything that could do what I suggested I. You know spread a bit and suppress weeds and it could be seven feet tall. It can be a big SHRUB and I've seen that. But. I. Guess. What do you think is that just about it? Yeah, and and like what you said you know we think when we hear if you hear the phrase ground cover, you would think, oh, turf can walk on it but there really ain't no such things I mean there are so few things that can tolerate that I mean maybe creeping timing lawn, you could technically walk on but you know really almost none of them so So yeah. So it can be any hide I completely agree it's it's it's maybe a living mulch is. Is the. cloudy a west of landscape designer of fido studios. She says, plants are the MULCH. You know that's one of her key phrases that we need to remember and I think in a way. Like I have a lot of masses of ground cover. Like Geranium Macrocosm, the big route Geranium. Yeah and doesn't seed around doesn't it is rise Amadeus, but the rise zones don't spread sideways underground. It's of like it sounds big route on the surface. So, I find that he's unit, you can just edit it. You can pull out a bunch and throw it away and so forth but it gives you weed suppression that you were talking about right it's it's it's a living mulch It shades the ground under the trees and shrubs. Moishe helps keeps moisture and etcetera etcetera, but it's not so rambunctious that it's troublemaker It won't jump out of where it was where you intended to be. Does that make sense? Yes. There was one plant here. Twenty six years ago that some. People before I bought this place planted and I'm still. I'm still a ratting in this year. It was it was a ground cover this year. I think it almost eight the house. And the it's. Tonia. Oh Yeah Tuna however that Chameleon plant that's a nightmare. That's actually one of the most popular stories on my website ever is one of us visited from Google searches is about can I get? How can I get rid of? You know how can I kill this plant still full fill fold on Mare plant? Yeah. We've mentioned it before it is nightmare plant but but the draining macaroni him by comparison, it only exists in the places I, put it in though I started with a few plants I now have large expanses of it. It means that I don't have to weed. Those beds as often nearly evergreen even here in zone five B and you know it just does a really good We'd suppressing kind of a job. But then there's like the Lambda Strom. which wants to take over the earth and. So. Forth. So then you're you participated in its takeover. Bid And so. There's lots of things and we should say, of course, the disclaimer as ever. What is invasive in one place or becoming invasive is again, the temperature shift the the weather the climate shifts is. Is Not, the same as in another place something may self. So in Georgia that doesn't self so in Michigan and In the neighborhood yeah. Depending on soil types and exactly. There's so many things that you can grow like your angelic. I cannot grow that right for you that. COMES UP YEAH so. So I mean, the classic things that

"Welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi. Lewin. Both Con Amadeus Mozart wrote more beautiful music in his not quite thirty five year lifetime than a lot of composers who lived a lot longer one kind of music that fascinated Mozart from the time he was a kid was opera. Mozart I. said he wanted to write an opera when he was eight and when he was twelve, he did up through the very last year of his life. He continued composing operas. An opera is a stage work with costumes and sets that also includes music singing as an important part of the drama instead of speaking their lines, the characters sing them. Italy. Was the country where opera got its start. So Italian was the fashionable language for writing operas even in German speaking Austria where Mozart lived. But Go to kind of opera that's related to our Broadway musical. It's called the Zing Spiel a play with singing Austrians who didn't speak Italian could understand because it was in German just like in American musical theater, there are spoken lines that move the plot along but when the characters want to let you know what they're feeling, they sing about it or August. I have two favorite Mozart operas one in each language not city Figo Godot is Italian for the marriage of Figaro. This opera is based on a very famous, very revolutionary play about a servant Figaro who outsmarts his royal master. Since, there was still plenty of royalty around when the play was written. It was pretty daring. Some kings wouldn't allow it to be performed. At the beginning of the Opera Figaro is busy measuring his new bedroom, you can hear him counting five, ten, twenty in. Italian of course. Susannah the woman Figaro's going to marry tries to interrupt. She wants him to look at her bridal veil. You can hear in Mozart's music how hard it is forces Emma to get Figaro's attention. Figaro has some Great Arias or Solos in the opera when one of the characters is sent to the army and doesn't want to go figaro things about what it will be like ticked rate in his pants, he closed for a uniform and then marched to the mud. Nine. and. My other Mozart favorite is the magic flute heat Salva Fluid a Germans ing. SPIEL. In the magic flute, the Queen of the night represents evil dark forces and Rostro represents light and truth. It's brilliant how Mozart shows the contrast between them by having the Queen of the night fast loud and very high. While rostro music is slow deliberate and very. The. Most, fun character in the magic flute is Papa Gay No. The Bird Catcher I even named a cat after him. Papa John is always looking for a wife when he finds one, her name turns out to be Papa Gain A-, and they sing a wonderful using their names to investigate the birds he catches. Wish, I had time to play you more music from Mozart operas next week a kind of music so. In Mozart's bay that classical composers latched onto it to
About Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
"Hello I'm Naomi Lewin welcome to. Classics for kids. Think of the most brilliant talented kid. You know maybe somebody in your class now imagine if that person couldn't be in class because starting at the age of five he or she was off performing for presidents, kings queens all sorts of world leaders. Well, that's what it was like to be both gung. Amadeus Mozart. Mozart was born in Salzburg Austria where his father leopold was a violinist and composer when Mozart junior was three, he climbed up to the keyboard and just started playing. That's when Mozart senior realized he had a genius on his hands. So he started the touring Mozart show he took his son both gun and his daughter Nano on the road to perform for royalty they went all over Europe. Sometimes staying away from home for years at a stretch everyone was amazed at how well the children played and especially at how well little both gone could improvise. That is makeup music on the spot using whatever tune they gave him. Votes, are composed his first piece when he was five had his first music published when he was seven and wrote his first opera at the age of twelve he was a Whiz at the keyboard and the violin most of Mozart's concertos for those instruments here for himself to play. Lose Friends with the best musicians of the day. So he wrote Concertos for their instruments to, for instance the French Horn. One friend played a newfangled instrument that Mozart. Loved the clarinet. A Concerts that he and other people put on Mozart wrote symphonies. And for celebrations he wrote serenade. When he worked for the Prince Archbishop of Salzburg the man who also employed his father Mozart composed religious music. Having, toured all over Europe as a child Mozart did not want to stay in Salzburg working for the Prince Archbishop when he grew up even though that's put his father wanted. So he moved to the big city of Vienna, which was full of music theatre and opera in Vienna Mozart married Constanza Vaber. He'd actually fallen in love with her older sister I and he tried to find steady work that he thought was worthy of how talented he was. Mozart had a hard time as an adult. He couldn't get over being a child prodigy the very talented kid back. Then grownup musicians were considered servants by the nobles who hired them, but kings and empresses had made a huge fuss over Mozart when he performed for them as a child so he didn't think of himself as a servant. He also never learned how to manage money. He couldn't resist the urge to buy new clothes or a piano or a billiard table whatever he wanted. Mozart. Died just before his thirty fifth birthday. It's amazing. How much incredibly beautiful music he wrote in such a short

The Problem with Changing Seats on Air Canada
"Can we talk about Air Canada? It for sure so for those. Who Don't know you have to pay for a seat on Air Canada if you don't book one of their more expensive fares and I paid for a seat because I'm not going to get stuck in the middle seat on the Trans Con on Thursday and I decided I wanted to change that seat to a seat that price. The exact same as well paid. They want to charge again for the same seat. Does it refund after? Doesn't tell you says we want to charge you. Whatever amount so I'M NOT GONNA pay them to change to a seat? The exact same. You know you might. It does the same thing right. Really how can we not figure this out if a will be? It's because they don't go back and check your record if you've paid for the previous seat assignment cash. So united does it. If you've been calmed and economy plus on united you'd think the same value. See you again but you do terrible.

it's really it's really adult I probably imagined it was sex or something like that he well okay and the salary sees the chocolates going into the room and right now of course this chocolate they always they always look so delicious Timmy I yeah and the nickname f Murray Abraham eats them it looks great acting yes probably actually was delicious yeah but then he comes out and here's the Mozart Grand Partido but it's it's very opening is the very thing the peace which is the other great thing they don't they don't start in the middle the pieces were it's not the first movement right I think that's the piece it starts with a kind of March right Deng Deng done in I'm done the off the check that I remember being disappointed when I find okay so scratch that yeah that that's not as soon as we started the beginning of the movement they do and I'm GonNa say something really terrible it's probably gonNA offend a bunch of wind players if we have any listening but I you know the time I'd heard this piece was in the movie and for whatever reason I never had the intellectual curiosity go seek it out and listen to the whole thing but I you know years later when I was in Ottawa watching you play guest concert master in the National Arts Centre Orchestra you know of course this was programmed on the same night that you were playing other stuff you weren't playing this because it's wins only and then so excited stir it is clean and make fun of people who think Barbara Adagios the soundtrack to platoon but you know here I am you know Grandpa Artigas the soundtrack Tom does and then it just I'm sorry so offensive it just it's so long you know so long it's like forty five minutes fifteen minutes something like that I had the same reaction I heard the whole thing oh it's so tear you know I'm so the Philistines so yeah I just heard it and I was like oh so he used the best part the part that's not in the movie like they lost me after the eight measures or whatever that's terrible and you know what's so horrible I also felt that way about the requiem for a while the central piece to this whole movie shirt and I I really seek out after the movie because I remember I had a tape cassette tape of it and I was because I loved that so much based on you know how it was represented in the in the movie and of course it is a great piece but you know I went out bought the recording and then I I remember thinking like this piece I know a little bit a little bit longer than I was eight so to copy some slack yeah they're different completions probably vary well that's just like in the movie he really didn't complete it in real life and so what we perform as written other people yeah so honestly that you know after the locker most yeah after lap Promo so those eight measures I do you know there's part of me that kind of goes away a little bit after after that well it is striking that we know you can see that those of a last eight bars of music wrote and you know to imagine whether it happened we know it didn't happen the way it in the movie but that's as good a ideas any the someone standing over him browbeating him trying to get them to complete it and he just his clock runs out and other people have to finish the peace that those opening bars of the Lacrimosa are incredible incredible music and I I hope it's not just because associated with this amazing beautiful movie really is like it's it's incredibly moving an estimate he work a straight it too I hope I can't even tell you that I don't know enough about so what parts of the movie was he works starting in the movie so yeah those those are my feelings about the music they use an and you know that the way that I still feel about those pieces and I'll never be able to think of those those pieces without the movie so I agree you remember actually playing objection from the Seraglio the Opera Chicago you know I didn't I didn't play that because I only remember you coming home just looking shell-shocked having had a triangle rainer earphone that's right you know and I should have remembered because they make a big deal in the movie the about how it's set in Turkey and this I feel I can yeah beethoven nine and any classical music play where they're supposed to have been some kind of Turkish and there's always a triangle in it and so a lot of triangle in deduction from the Seraglio and when I I played it I was sitting in the back of the Violin Section in Chicago right in front of the CIA angle and yeah I later learned that the triangle is one of the loudest instruments in the orchestra at least in a certain radius it's very directional it's almost like sitting in front of a Piccolo which is that's like suicidal but that's the opera and the movie where the ember tells them there too many notes I think salaries says something like like fireworks whizzing up and down at the fairground and when I actually finally had the chance to play that piece thought it's Kinda true playing the little little little little little little I'm always kind of confused by that scene actually movie it's like does he it seems like the one time like he doesn't actually admire the writing are or are we supposed to believe that he's already kind of embittered or saying the rest of the time it seems like no matter how bitter he is he has to he has to concede just how masterful Mozart's writing has been in this case I was always a little bit confounded by that like is he actually saying like this is like the one the one time where he felt like it wasn't you know that's true I was confused by that too it does seem like he just doesn't like that piece of Mozart's and maybe there's some historical I mean they have letters of salaries as well as I mean they have a lot of letters of Mozart's yeah maybe he just didn't like that one piece but it was fun to finally play it and have my hand feel the sense of too many notes as the emperor says they simply cut a few and yeah and I think I think we also have to confess that we're not always didn't always look forward to playing the Mozart operas I mean you we'd had colleagues who specifically would like I'm dying to play Don Giovanni and probably I'm hearing I'm hearing people running away from our podcast right because they're like what idiots don't love playing Mozart operas in their long and the rich additives they do go on sometimes yeah you know I I've slowly warmed to many more operas than I used to I used to just hate everything to do with opera and I don't know why I don't I don't know why that is but it's it's sort of playing the three big Mozart operas that we did a few years ago here in la I really miss that like you missed at least one if not two of them Oh because it was only a partial orchestra and you may have been on maternity for one of them yeah I don't really remember doing we did the Magic Flute Don Giovanni and was it marriage of Figaro must've been possible I missed all that anyway so yeah and Don Giovanni of course features pretty I'm very prominently in the movie that's the one where he supposedly includes a character that's his his father says other figure onstage wearing the same costume that is you know as the one in which he appeared in the movie right which you know and it's hard because so much of the movie is as we know made up yeah but it it it's so convincingly done I think it's hard not to Geico you know that you know that probably really happened maybe that happened you know right when we don't know and when there's no way to really know some of the answers to these questions than you'd better makeup something that makes a lot of dramatic sense than than that's really what they did right and then what what was the what was the history of how the screenplay came to uh to life it was a play on Broadway I yeah it had been a very successful play for at least five years I don't know much about so Peter Schaffer wrote the play right but I don't know much about his writing of the play and what yeah what his inspiration was exactly but the actor who played played Mozart in the Broadway production was chicken Nader right in this movie but in a much less prominent part than than Mozart and so I'd that too I don't know how that came about yeah I've always wondered playing lesser parked in the film maybe he just wasn't it available for however long you know that took the shoot the movie things happen movies for so many reasons yeah I mean we've you know we always read about all the crazy testing stuff that went on behind the scenes at the godfather well but so I mean one thing that is interesting so many of the actors being American because not primarily an American movie so to speak but I I know that the director's instructions to the actors was basically to simply use the accents you've got you know he didn't want and yeah and that was with Berridge to try to speak any other way now she was pretty much a last minute replacement and that I didn't know Don's it yeah the original actress I think broke her leg or something right before filming was to begin something where she couldn't she just wasn't gonna be able to do it and then those who were British I think were encouraged to just keep their British accents and Charles K riot who else was there I guess like a lot of the court people they were all right but you know as a kid I never even gave this a second thought and so I suppose that was a wise decision to just let everybody us there natural voice but the emperor for example is Americans yeah and it just it it goes with his character way so what are the things that we've seen him and he was in Ferris Bueller off and simple at Rooney but also you know Pewee now he was but he was he's friends with was friends with Paul Reubens sociation all right right so I remember thinking what does bizarre casting decision had been made with the emperor the when I saw him in Paris dealer who who thought he was going to play a great Austrian emperor dealer came after that after okay but still I mean do yeah just letting someone and play him with an American accent and even American mannerisms basically he just doesn't act royal exactly but you know I guess it's kind of tied Tom Halls 'cause I mean who who have seen that being yeah you know that's seems like such a brilliant stroke of casting I think a minute I mean he was certainly amazing in the movie Yes but I just can't imagine who som- thought this man should play you know an eccentric genius in eccentric European genius had just I and I think that it totally works because 'cause they really went with the irreverent side of his personality yeah we've had friends who musician friends actually who don't love this movie because of that they feel like the Mozart character is just too silly to oddball I mean we have friends will we know somebody will reign nameless who just thinks it's super cheesy so you know those people are out there the professional music look at this and say that's just it's so you know so that's our disclaimer I mean this is our healing about the second say every musician feels that split and also we have a very close friend who lives very those two here who has never seen the movie who is a professional cellist so how is that even.
Music May Orchestrate Better Brain Connectivity in Preterm Infants
"This is scientific Americans sixty seconds science.

But before you queue, the Amadeus, I felt about multifold. This is very complex musical structure, and I could hardly magin that such a immature brain would be able to fully capture the complexity of Mozart, so instead, she recruited the harpist Andrea's, vol- inviter, who worked with neonatal nurses to determine which sounds would most stimulate infants brains. He then composed the suite of three eight minute long tracks, which the nurses played twenty Preterm babies using wireless headphones embedded in little baby caps. Each baby heard five tracks a week for about six weeks on average then hoops team used MRI's to visualize activity in the baby's brain's, and what they found was that premiums who listen to tunes had brain networks, that more closely resembled, those of full term babies compared to their counterparts who didn't get the treatment, the music listeners had greater connectivity among brain regions, such as areas involved in sensory and higher. Order cognitive functioning, indicating that music listening might have enduring effects on brain development. The details are in the proceedings of the National Academy of sciences. Of course, many questions still remain. I'll watch dilation to that was stimulation, given the right way would be much better. If it was. Something more lively than the recorded music was too simple. Or could it be more complex, but hoop? He said, one thing parents can already do his sing to their children. Plus, she said it doesn't really matter if you can carry it too.

The Final Moments of 'The Marriage of Figaro' On A 12-Hour Loop
"Today, who would get what in the forty four million dollar Harvey Weinstein settlement proposal, plus an Icelandic artists celebrates the experimental fluxes art movement by looping, the final aria of the marriage of Figaro for twelve straight hours, really what I I'm trying to achieve is to like make this part of an opera with is not structure, like stop being narrative and make like a sculpture painting. Plus, I'll talk without reporter, jewelry Finkel who's trying to break down gallery walls by having artists. Tell us about the piece of art that inspired them. The most stay tuned for the frame. There's a forty four million dollar tentative settlement in the civil portion of the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct case, the Wall Street Journal broke the story, I called reporter, Karen Ramey in the journal's newsroom and Astor how they wind up with forty four million forty four million comes from months and months of pretty contentious negotiations over what women should be paid, how they should be paid, and who should pay it right in a dozen mediation sessions that I guess got pretty ugly. Yeah, they did get ugly, because there were a lot of competing interests at play here, there were women who said they were victims and should be compensated. And a lot of these are these are women who filed lawsuits. They're also insurance companies the New York attorney general's office, which filed its own civil rights lawsuit about employment conditions against both Harvey Weinstein and his company, and we should be very clear here. This is not just a settlement that involves Harvey Weinstein. Absolutely. There's quite a few women who sued Harvey Weinstein. But some of these same women including a proposed class action suit sued board, members, former officers and directors executives and all kinds of people who surrounded Harvey Weinstein saying that they knew about his alleged behavior and enabled it. And so this proposed settlement also would end any legal proceedings for all those other defendants. Adam Harris, who is Bob. Weinstein's lawyer announced the. Settlement saying, we now have an economic agreement in principle. That is supported by the plaintiffs is though, this settlement, what the plane is had hoped for even close. I think the point is to say play deaths. I mean, particularly the class of women who say they were abused by Mr. Weinstein had hoped for way, way, more money. And so in a way, this is a little bit of a disappointment. The breakdown goes, it's forty four million of proposed thirty million goes to the plaintiffs fourteen million goes to pay legal fees. How is that thirty million going to be broken up? Do we know? So I, I do want to say this is still tentative, it's a sort of proposed agreement, and some of these details are still being worked out, but we know that, that thirty would include money that would go to women to former Weinstein company employees and then also studio creditors. And Mr. Weinstein's, former studio is going to bankruptcy right now. And so this process is also to. Resolve some claims in bankruptcy. And then I would assume for the for the plaintiffs who alleged sexual harassment that it would be a sliding scale based on the severity of the harassment. Again, these details are still being ironed out. But the way these things typically work is there would be some sort of special master, or person, sort of, in charge of awarding appropriate amounts of money to different people who apply to get money from the victims fund, and in exchange agreed to either drop their lawsuit or not file on, where's the forty four million coming from insurance companies are paying all of it. You can buy insurance to cover illegal acts. Well, it's complicated. These are sort of these broad employment policies and what they're actually covering is defense costs. And so it's defense costs, not just for Harvey, but also for the directors and officers, those are the former executives former board members at. Once seen studio and women have sued them alleging that they sort of facilitated Harvey's behavior. Does Weinstein admit any guilt in this forty four million dollar proposed settlement. He does not it's important to mention, though to that there's a criminal case against Weinstein in Manhattan, and this is not impact the criminal case in any way. If you read the comments section in any of the newspaper stories about this. A lot of people are saying, V, Weinstein just bought himself out of jail. But no, this is this is the civil part of the of the suits against him. Not the criminal parts. Yes. This is only civil suits. There's a lot of dome, but they are all civil and criminal charges. They're still there. He's expected to go to trial and September when they pick a jury for this trial. Are they ever going to be able to find a juror who, who doesn't know that? There was a forty four million dollar settlement. They're probably going sort of, to answer that question, more broadly. They're going to have trouble finding juror who's not aware. Harvey weinstein. But that's okay. What they're at the end of the day. What they'll need to look for is people who sort of haven't made up their mind about Harvey, or people who say that they can be fair and only listen to the evidence at trial and not include in their thought process. All these other things I've read in the news, what's the next step for the settlement. Well, it's not final. There are further discussions coming up between all the parties. So they need to sort of they need to hammer out these last minute details. See if they can all agree on them, and my understanding is that settlement will also have to be approved by judge grin Remy reporter for the Wall Street Journal. Karen, thanks very much. Great. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. Coming up on the frame and artist who's looping the last aria of the marriage of Figaro for twelve hours John horn asked why stay wins. Welcome back to the frame. I'm John Rabi? What happens when you take a few moments from Mozart's, the marriage of Figaro and play it over and over and over audiences are gonna find out Saturday at downtown L, A's, red cat theater, when Iceland artist Ragnar Carson presents, bliss, a twelve hour loop of the final moments of the opera, it's part of the Fluxus festival hosted by the LA fill and the Getty research institute in honor of the experimental fluxes art, movement of the nineteen sixties John Horne caught a rehearsal yesterday. Well, part of a rehearsal at red cat and ask Hartson how directing bliss compares to directing the whole opera is a very different approach. I mean when you're doing the monitor figure into doing the whole production, rehearsing the music, and like plot plot that that cetera, cetera, totally but but laying here here would would just just the working working with with this this musical musical part. part. Really, what I I'm trying to achieve is to like to kind of make this part of an opera, which is not structure, like stop being not and make like sculpture painting. But you just like walk in the member and see. And then just walk out again. And maybe check it out again. But, you know, it's always the same like a painting on the wall. But, but twelve hours. Yeah. So with the audience experiences it in a different way to the performance as well. Does it become something different for them through repetition about what it is? They're doing. Is it more like muscle memory? Is it become less about character? How is the performers mind change because the audiences mind is definitely changed. Yeah. Also a performer like what I really like doing it's really just sink into the music. And the lyrics and the situation it stops being about. Like you know what is happening now in the Oprah just like you just this. for for twelve twelve hours, hours, a a new new But singing, singing, then, again this this league beautiful beautiful you're there music music is is almost almost starts starts to to become become white white noise, noise, you you just just don't don't realize realize you're you're singing singing anymore anymore and and you you don't don't hear hear anymore, anymore, but but you're you're doing doing it it anyway anyway and just thinking about sandwiches or something. And why this particular part of the opera because this is a aria about forgiveness. It's an aria where a man has done some very bad things or tried to do some very bad things and hasn't completely succeeded. But he's had bad intentions, and he is forgiven because the person who is forgiving him is, I think she says it better than he is. Why is that idea of what happens in this story, so important to recognize and to repeat about what it saying about forgiveness and reconciliation? I'm so in. All of this part of the opera, for so many like multi layered reasons is also like it's also written by Lawrence of the bounty and, and Volker, Amadeus Mozart than like, you know, it's, it's time like modalities being created this letter at the time when I'm Medicare is becoming a Medica the friends of Lucien and whatnot. And then the comes to this Oprah about just pleasure and lust and. Then there's this moment of forgiveness and then like reconciliation. But also it's ironic. They're saying they forgive each other. But, you know that the authors are not really forgiving each other, and nobody is happy forever after that's what I love about this part of, like, it's kind of one of my favorite parts of like the whole idea of like western art, because it's so multi layered complicated that it's like you can feel, but it was really written tongue in cheek. But it's so beautiful that you cry. I always imagine most of this, like really in teak, but, like, it's so Bill, Paul. You have been interested in repetition a lot in your art. Does this story change the more times you see it? Do you start seeing the story in a different way as an audience member? The more times you see it. Maybe if you have a multi nation, I think, so. But, like I myself I don't really have a multi-nation, I just see the same thing over over again, and kind of sort of become spill Diffley mundane for me. But some people, I know who have imagination start seeing different things. And also, I think that is important in this piece in all, and all our pieces that I make that it's, it's really belongs to the viewer to what the viewer feels. And how does repetition change with viewer experiences as opposed to just looking at something once leaving the room. What is the repeat viewing do in terms of how we interpreter see something or hear something repetition is like it's such Woodley important thing in Kotor, and like in all cultures we always use repetition to make things. Holy like. Every religion has repetition of its core. And of course, we feel the, the security of repetition. And I'm just really interested in seeing therapeutic things like stuck in this repetition, then they stop becoming narrative, and traumatic and they just become sculptural, and it's almost as you can look at the from from all sides. We're talking with Ragnar Cureton about his staging of bliss. You have performed in this piece as well. What is the mindset that gets you through a performance at what point are you kind of losing focus? How you stay focused. How do you make sure that through the twelve hours of performance that you are able to do your work repeatedly without falling apart? I never have any like the special method for it because the funny thing is like petrol is always like this Hato thing, we're going to do this, twelve hours put like everybody has a job and they just do the repetitive thing for hours and hours. And so this is not. So far away from a regular job. But it's it's like you just go just go to it like I was like a working McDonalds. You're like I just gotta do it. Now I'm just on job. So that's kind of the mindset I have. But, but it's a it's a job, I really love a I just enjoy every moment of it, although sometimes I'm bored. The bottom is, it's almost like a relief in our modern times to be bored. It's just like just, just the idea of, we're going to perform this, and I'm just going to be doing nothing but this for twelve hours, it's really like. It's like the idea of some kind of occasion, like no will decisions about anything for twelve hours, we're on radio so we can't really picture what it is that audiences will see. But how would you describe the set in the costumes res- production told Todd cliche, like the rococo very Ricco, Cova very much of the Petiot to classical staging. And I just really liked clinical staging. I just love the idea of like painted sats and stuff like that. And to the performance get to eat and drink today. Leave stage. Are they snacking onstage? How do you make sure that they have enough energy to keep going? And I guess including that or the people who are playing the music we just bring food and snacks to the states.

I am talking once again about the personal speakers made by Amazon and Google and Apple's personal assistant. I will be saying their words out loud. So you might wanna mute their microphones before we go any further. Okay. Folks. I have a question that I just ask Alexa. I said, hey, what music should I listen to how about exploring some music from on shell depot a popular classical artist. I think you'll like no, thank you. Would you like to listen to something by the Oscar Peterson trio Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart or James Taylor? Oscar Peterson trio please here's an album. You might like now that was fun. Wasn't it Amazon's personal sin just got chatty? With me, that's kind of unusual and something that we have seen. But you know, today, we're talking about music commands for personal assistance. Google will not chat with you. And neither will Siri. But Amazon does a pretty nice job of being your personal DJ. And at times like you heard there concern out pretty well. The key is knowing what to ask and refining your request until it gets it. Right. Once you're there, you are in better shape than a radio DJ because you really are way more likely to hear music that you like let's go over some of the commands that are pretty cool. I told you about what music should I listen to which just for the heck of it. Hey, Siri what music? Should I listen to? Here's some great music. You may have never heard. That wasn't the command. Hey, google. What music should I listen to I can search for popular music, new music or any kind of music in other words, it couldn't answer the question. Here's some other good commands that you should know play music. I like they all do this pretty well for Siri. It will only do it. If you subscribe to apple music Siri will only do it. If you subscribe, apple music, Google defaults to YouTube music, which is ad supported and Amazon will give prime members free limited Amazon prime music. Mike experience was Amazon did a better job of playing music that I liked if you ask a question like play the latest Ariana GRANDE album, shuffled all of them get it right on the first request. If you try having fun with lyrics of believe belieber, not is not very good at it. But Siri and Alexa. Our instance. Hey, Siri play the song that goes tell me something girl. Shallow by lady Gaga and Bradley. Super. So when I ask that question that Google got it wrong three times, it got it right on the fourth attempt. Same thing. When I use the phrase, you know, what I want in what I need baby. That's of course, by Cardi B and Bruno Mars from the song, please me Google decided I wanted to listen to respect by Irit, the Franklin the query play some happy music. Google plays the song happy by Pharrell Williams. That wasn't really what I had mind. Alexa in Syria. Actually, give me some happy music the play music. I haven't listened to in a while is a really weird request because Google plays a song never heard my life. It's if there hadn't been you by Billy dean, while I've asked this question to Amazon speaker over ten times in every time they respond with a syrupy ditty by the late. John Denver somebody. I never listened to never wanna listen to. And they don't even offer me a second opinion and apple response by choosing attract I've never heard of called. It's not you. It's not me by b Miller and. Six black. That is a weird request play a song. Listen to less Friday, Amazon. Does that really well Google plays a song that I didn't play last Friday or the week before or whatever? And apple plays me song. I also didn't listen to overall Amazon does a way better job than Google or apple when it comes to music if you're willing to ask for specific play this song play this album play this title play this playlist.
