A Peek at Atid, the Future

Last night's benefit show for the Atid Society at JKHA was a rousing success.
14 songs by 24 artists and musicians produced the magic that reminds us of why we go to see music performed live on stage. The show, Produced by Beth Ravin with Musical Direction by Greg Wall, featured 3 different versions of HaTikvah! The first was the traditional opening song. Later, Yossi Piamenta's electric guitar interpretation ignited the stage before his own version of Shedemati. Lastly, Dov Rosenblatt and Diwon led the ensemble in a updated slightly Hip Hop version that's sure to become a hit! "We Hope" the live mixes of these tracks sounds as amazing as they did from the stage.
Check out Diwon's own Shemspeed for the YouTube clip.

JM in the AM with Nachum Segal hosts Greg Wall

We were most fortunate this morning to be featured on WFMU's radio program "Jewish Music in the Morning," a metro-area staple. Host Nachum Segal plays three tracks from the Pioneers For A Cure project while engaging our own Pioneer Producer Greg Wall on the process of updating these classic songs. Hear the latest from Noah Solomon, Y-Love with Diwon, as well as Seth Glass by following this link. Listen (MP3 - 128K)

Greg gets the word out about our upcoming live event for the ATID Society of Kushner Academy in Livingston, NJ, while blending in tidbits from the Pioneers For A Cure project. Great work Greg! Cutting Edge!

Hail to the Chief

Congratulations to our new President-elect. Getting past this election cycle is such a relief in and of itself. Now we can all move forward together, and we should focus on healing our society and finding a cure for cancer.

Election night was special at the Pioneer Studio because we happened to get our "mastered"  14 track Limited Preview Edition in for approval before CD's are made. These tracks sound even better now. Very special thanks to Rob Paustian, Mastering Engineer extraordinaire!
