Scott Pinkmountain
We have a bevy of new episodes up, and we’d love to hear what you think of them. Also, if you have questions for the guests, ask away and we will retrieve answers for you.
The Musicology Show: Building A Song From The Ground Up. Pandora music analyst Scott Pinkmountain takes his song, “You Gave Me This,” and disassembles it for us. He reverse-engineers the track to show how he built it, piece by piece. Pianos prepared with tissue boxes, stiffly swinging drums, and orchestrons await.
Music 101: Singing In Harmony. In this video episode, Greg Giles and Kelly Atkins from 20 Minute Loop look at vocal harmony, and the myriad ways two singers can harmonize a line: tutti, contrary motion, call and response, counterpoint and more. We also discuss the well-known artists who use these harmonizing styles.
The Musicology Show: Strings. Violinist Alan L. Lin and cellist Yair Evnine show how they get their sounds, play some brilliant excerpts from great classical works, and talk shop. Now that Pandora features classical music, we’re going to spend more time looking at orchestral instruments, and this is our first foray.
Great Venues: South by Southwest, Part 3. In the final episode of our SxSW trilogy, performers from Lovelikefire, Mud, Elephone and Minipop extol the virtues of a festival in which musicians can enjoy the company of other bands. It’s a love fest, as they prefer to see other groups as peers rather than as competitors.
Thanks, y’all,
Kevin

    I just joined. My daughter told me I could find any music I would like to hear bur I can not find S'io t'amo by Teresa Seneke (1848-1875). I am not sure who recorded her music but I am learning this piece and would love to hear someone singing it. I am excited to be listening to the classical station as I type. Thank you, Ocean

    Please, please, please make Pandora available for Suncom phones! I got a great new Blackberry and lament that the only thing it can't do is play my Pandora stations! Any update on Pandora Mobile would be greatly appreciated.
