Several disability activism movements of the 20th and 21st centuries have preserved the history of disability involvement in music and the arts. It is interesting to see how various models of disability interact with arts and culture and how the public’s conception of disability has changed as a result of creative efforts. Here we provide a survey of the scene of disability activism in the arts, with a focus on the music sector.

Dom Smith’s ideas were used to create this article. Born in East Yorkshire, he earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from the University of Central Lancashire and now works as a digital journalist for Soundsphere M and a Chartered Adviser. Previously named one of the happiest people in the country by the Independent on Sunday, he won the National Diversity Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence in 2012. He was also a Paralympic Torchbearer for York.

Dom asserts that ever since there have been social movements, music has been an integral part of American popular culture. The oral transmission of knowledge and stories from one generation to the next is also reflected in the music. The concept of ‘belonging’ is deeply rooted in the historic roots of disability rights movements, which sought to ensure that people with disabilities were recognized and treated as full members of society. ‘Disabled people’ became ‘disabled people’ as the ‘language of the person’ spread.

The issue of ableism always arises whenever a director chooses to cast a non-disabled actor in the role of a disabled character. A disabled artist’s job is to challenge the norms of what it means to be an artist and suggest new ways to include everyone. Some television shows, such as Vestiaires in France, CripTales in the UK and Deaf U in the US, feature actors and creators with disabilities. 18,19,20 Theatrical productions developed in a comparable way. After being turned down by mainstream theaters, performers with disabilities have had to develop their own methods of representation and companies through which to showcase their talents. Funding for such ventures has been initiated in England, among other places.

In the United States, Sins Invalid is not only a company of dancers and actors with disabilities, but also a major disability justice-based performance project that provides political and social justice education on issues disability, race, gender and sexuality. Their mission is “to incubate and celebrate artists with disabilities, artists of color, and LGBTQ/gender variant artists as historically marginalized communities.” Their website not only features their shows, but also a podcast, documentaries, and a blog dedicated to disability justice.

Disability’s quieter rise in the music industry has been marked by a more low-key presence. Any musician, whether or not they have a visible disability, will need to modify their methods of study and performance to be successful. Musicians from the disabled community have formed their own orchestras and ensembles in much the same way that professional actors have formed companies within the community to showcase their talents. England was one of the first countries to think about making the arts accessible to people with disabilities, and it is still moving in this direction.

To put these figures into context, it is important to remember that England hosted the Paralympic Games in London in 2012, a global event that caused the country to review its approach to disability inclusion. Athletes and artists with disabilities felt like they were treated “like everyone else” at the event for the first time in disability history. It served as an excellent illustration of the importance of including and advocating for people with disabilities. The Opening and Closing Ceremonies were just as extravagant as the Olympics a few weeks earlier and featured performances by many artists with disabilities. The entire contest was televised across the country and around the world. The stadiums were filled with as many spectators as during the Olympic Games. Athletes and performers were honored for their achievements. 27 Although things changed dramatically for the Olympics, this was not the case afterwards. Media and communications specialists Daniel Jackson, Caroline EM Hodges, Mike Molesworth and Richard Scullion published a book in 2015 which included contributions from sport and disability experts.

Culturally, there was an undeniable positive outcome for many musicians with disabilities who performed at the opening and closing ceremonies, although it is not yet clear whether social change has occurred. in a sustainable way.

Increasing the visibility of artists with disabilities in the music industry requires awareness of disability issues. However, progress has been slow in welcoming people with disabilities, whether as spectators or performers.

Dallas Music Industry Members Tell Us How the Grammys Changed Their Careers https://wildtextileworld.com/dallas-music-industry-members-tell-us-how-the-grammys-changed-their-careers/ Tue, 22 Nov 2022 10:00:00 +0000 https://wildtextileworld.com/dallas-music-industry-members-tell-us-how-the-grammys-changed-their-careers/ Last week, nominees were announced for the 65th Grammys, and several Dallas-Fort Worth artists are up for awards at next year’s ceremony.

Last week, nominees were announced for the 65th Grammys, and several Dallas-Fort Worth artists are up for awards at next year’s ceremony. Music’s biggest night still seems to be tearing up our (and soon to be non-existent Twitter) newsfeeds, and despite all the naysayers who claim year after year that the Grammys never pull off, they still carry enormous weight in the world of the recording industry.

Although Dallas is best known as a “backstage city” that primarily spawns prolific producers, songwriters and sound engineers, many locals say the Grammys open the doors to a promising and lasting musical career.

Plano native Gayle is thrilled with her first-ever Grammy nomination, which is nominated for Song of the Year with her kiss-off anthem, “abcdefu.”

“I was in shock,” the singer said upon learning of her Grammy nomination. “I started crying, then I FaceTimed my best friend, who I wrote the song with, and we both started crying, then I called my mom and I started crying more, and so does she.”

This year, Gayle released two EPs, A study of human experience, in volumes one and two. Her music gives her all the motivation she needs as she works on her first feature film and prepares for her tour.

Last February, Erykah Badu’s debut album, Baduism, turned 25. This album earned Badu her first Grammy nomination – the track “On & On” won the Grammy for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance, and the album as a whole won Best R&B Album. “On & On” was produced by Jah Born of Dallas, who also won Grammys for his contributions to the track and the album.

According to Jah, once he won those Grammys, he received “a lot of love and respect” for his career milestone.

“Winning a Grammy early in my musical journey paved the way for me to work with so many great artists and bands,” he says. “I learned tons of information about the music industry, and also got my music heard and placed around the world.”

Guitarist Mark Lettieri, who attended Texas Christian University in Fort Worth and got his start on the Dallas music scene, won his first Grammy in 2013 as a member of jazz fusion band Snarky Puppy. The group won Best R&B Performance for their song “Something,” which features Lalah Hathaway.

In subsequent years, the band won the Grammys for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album for their album Sylva in 2015, and in 2016 he won the same award for the album, Culcha Vulcha.

“I believe [winning these Grammys] was a great moment for the group and for the individual members,” says Lettieri. “For many avenues in the industry, having ‘Grammy-winning’ or ‘Grammy-nominated’ [in your name] may result in new or different opportunities.

Lettieri says that although his friends and family still treat him the same, he thinks the Grammys have significance among industry peers. But he insists he keeps making music for the same reasons he always has.

“It’s a real honor to be recognized by a win or a nomination,” says Lettieri, “but it’s not what we make our music for.”

Still, Lettieri treasures the accolades and remains active in the Recording Academy’s Texas chapter.

“The Recording Academy as a whole is doing a really good job for musicians and those in the industry,” Lettieri says, “like health care and benefits through MusiCares, educational initiatives in schools and even in Washington, D.C. DC, on behalf of finding more comprehensive solutions and fair ways to ensure creators are compensated for their art.

“For many avenues in the industry, having ‘Grammy-winning’ or ‘Grammy-nominated’ [in your name] may result in new or different opportunities. –Marc Lettieri

Producer Symbolyc One, also known as S1, is up for two Grammys at the 2023 ceremony for his work on Beyoncé Renaissance album. The album itself is nominated for Best Electronic Album, as well as the coveted Album of the Year. On the album, he produced the tracks “I’m The Girl” and “All Up in Your Mind”.

S1 is no stranger to the Grammys. In 2012, he won his first for his work on Kanye West’s My beautiful dark twisted fantasy album. He has since won for his contributions to Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2for which Dallas singer/songwriter Sarah Jaffe also won a Grammy, and for her work on Kirk Franklin’s album, Long Live Love.

“It’s just great to be part of this prestigious club,” says S1, “and to have that stamp on my name and brand.”

Over the years, the Recording Academy has come under fire for its predominantly white male voters. This year, the Academy announced that its new pool of voters will include 44% POC voters and 32% female voters – although the Academy hopes to attract 2,500 female voters by 2025.

Although some remain cynical about the Grammys, S1 is happy to see changes within the institution and believes it is on the right path to growth.

“It’s constantly evolving,” says S1, “and changing to make things better for creatives.”

Fridayy is a 3-time Grammy nominated singer, songwriter and producer from Philadelphia. He’s currently signed to Def Jam and earned his breakthrough moment this year by appearing on hit tracks like DJ Khaled’s “GOD DID” alongside Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, John Legend and Jay Z, as well as “Forever.” by Lil Baby, who earned his first top 10 on the Billboard charts.

We had a chat with Fridayy about how songwriting helped him get into the music industry faster, his unique sound, his dreams of working with Frank Ocean, his recently released EP Lost in the melodyand more.

Oumou Fofana: This is YOUR year. You were recently nominated for the Grammy Awards and you are already on the Billboard charts. How are you feeling right now?

Friday : I eat well. That’s not really a way to explain it. I feel blessed though. I feel blessed, that’s a good word for it.

Fofana: Have you ever imagined breaking and entering like this?

Friday : I always imagined it but I didn’t know it was going to be like this, so fast and how it happened. But I always saw myself at this level. I always knew I was meant to be at this level. For sure.

Fofana: On the other hand, your voice on “God Did”? Wow. You really brought this song to life. You’re a rising artist and already on a record with music icons like Jay Z and Lil Wayne.

Friday : It’s crazy. Sometimes I think it’s unreal, like it’s just crazy. There are people who have been in the industry for a long time and they cannot have the opportunity that I had. It is a blessing. They can’t get on a song with Jay Z. The fact that I did that in my freshman year is a blessing.

Fofana: Can you tell us the story of this achievement?

Friday : I watched Khaled a lot on Instagram quoting the saying “GOD DID”. So me, my manager, and A&R thought it was a good idea to try sending him a song with that message. The song originally started with me. There was no one else on it. At first Khaled told me it was really meant to be an interlude with just me singing. But one day Khaled called and said he was going to make it a legend. That’s when he kicked off all the rappers.

Fofana: Besides your vocals on Lil Baby’s single “Forever,” which is from his latest album, you also helped produce it. How did this collaboration come about?

Friday : It was actually through me and Vory. It was me and Vory’s song. He posted it on Instagram and I guess Lil Baby heard it. I don’t know how he heard it but he hit Vory and said, “Who sings on the hook?” Vory was like, “That’s my guy, that’s my man Fridayy.” That’s how it started. Lil Baby took Vory away and just kept the song for himself. Originally it was supposed to be me and Vory’s song.

Fofana: When did it happen?

Friday : It was like three weeks before Baby’s album came out. It was like recent. It was like finishing his album. We just got into it.

Fofana: Everything happens so fast for you. Achievements one after the other.

Friday : That’s what I’m telling you. I don’t even know what I feel yet. I haven’t really had a chance to really sit down and absorb it all.

Fofana: You’ve written and produced songs for Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa, Meek Mill, Tink, G Herbo, Rod Wave and many more. Did you start as a producer, then moved on to vocals? Tell us about this trip.

Friday : I have been an artist all my life. It wasn’t really moving because I never had the structure or anything you needed outside of the music. I never had these things. So when I met my manager, he was like, “Dude, maybe you should start writing and producing. It might be a faster way for you to get in the door. Because for real, for real when you meet as an A&R and you tell them you’re an artist, they really don’t care. When you tell them you’re a songwriter and you can give their artist 10 songs, they really lock in with you. They will bring you to the studio every day. It’s as if you were offering something other than trying to get a contract to become an artist. So, like, me writing first, that was a quicker way in.

Fofana: It is very interesting to know. Is music something that runs in your family?

Friday : Yeah, all my brothers make music. And my cousins ​​too. We all play an instrument in one way or sing in one way or another. It’s really family. I also think it’s like a church story. Hear all the music growing up.

Fofana: You have a very unique sound. Your voice is just different.

Friday : I used to listen to a lot of soul singers, old school singers, gospel singers, and all that. I listened to a lot of John Legend, Boy II Men and church music. Then I mix it with the new energy. That’s how I would explain my voice.

Fofana: Who gave you the nickname “Melody God?”

Friday : I gave myself this nickname. It was like the first time me and Timbaland started working. And then he kept telling me, “Bro, like, these melodies are crazy. You do not miss melodies. I really named myself that, but I was just starting to get amplified because Timbaland was the GOAT for me. The way he was just responding to what I was sending him, I was like, “Yeah, I’m the ‘Melody God’ for sure.

Fofana: Are you looking for musicians to inspire you?

Friday : Timbaland one of them for sure, Kanye West one of them for sure. There are many producers that I could name. Many with whom I already work, like my brothers. I’m inspired by Ayo, he’s a producer, Bizness Boi, Fortune.

Fofana: Artists with whom you dream of working?

Friday : Dude, I want to work with Frank Ocean. I want to work with Tems, Sza, Burna Boy.

Fofana: I was listening to your EP Lost in the melody yesterday. I really felt the vulnerability through the lyrics. You can say that your past struggles were a big inspiration behind this project.

Friday : Yeah, I just wanted to focus on what I was going through and what I know other people are going through, you know? I just wanted you to feel it through the music. Sometimes I don’t even dive deep. Like I could really dive deeper, but I just keep it as a surface level so you can put it your way. Like, no matter how you take it, you take it. Because it would be like songs like “Don’t Give Up On Me” or “God Sent”, my fans would hit me and they would tell me different, you know what I mean? Like different scenarios of their own life as they relate to the song, you know? So I just try to connect with people because I know everyone is going through something.

Fofana: God Sent is actually one of my favorite songs from the Ep. You and Vory? He’s one of my favorite artists right now. It’s an epic combination though. What is your relationship with Vory?

Friday : Vory one of them, like as soon as he heard me, he just wanted to help. It was genuine. Even giving him that song to Lil Baby, it just shows you the type of nigga he is, you know? He just wanted to help. He’s my brother for real. As soon as I established a connection with him, he would just give me advice. Like we’re on the phone, he’s just giving me advice on how to get through this. You know, because he’s been doing this longer than me. Vory really likes one of the GOATs right now. He is the favorite artist of your favorite artists. All your A-list artists love Vory. He just helped me because he started out a bit like me. He came with Bryson, he came with Drake.

Fofana: How did you meet each-other ?

Friday : It was Instagram.

Fofana: What was the best advice you ever received from someone in the industry.

Friday : Don’t stay focused on the victory you just got. Like keep working because once you win everyone really wants you to quit so you really have to go three times harder. Just like Khaled said, the key to winning is to keep winning. When I look back 10 years, I want to be like “Damn, I really left a mark.” That’s why I don’t really delve into it like you said. I’m just thinking next.

Fofana: Like it should be. So what’s next for you?

Friday : Probably a tour, definitely a new project in 2023.

Fofana: Other clips from the EP?

Friday : Oh yes definitely. We shoot. We’re trying to shoot music videos for a lot of the songs on the EP. Definitely be on the lookout for some remixes. And some additional features. I’m on a few people’s projects that are about to come out too.

Watch the music video for Fridayy’s latest single “Empty Stomach”, taken from his debut EP Lost in the melody below:

The music business is constantly evolving. Female musicians prove that talent isn’t determined by gender. Women are overcoming the challenges of a male-dominated music entertainment industry and motivating other women to do the same.

More and more powerful women in the music industry are lighting up the world every year. Women should be honored for their efforts and strength, according to activists like Ali Ciwanro. Ali Ciwanro is a songwriter who has worked and maintained cordial ties with a number of leading female musicians. He is thrilled with the rise of powerful women who are impacting the music industry.

Women in the music industry have demonstrated over the past 20 years that they are a force to be reckoned with. Today, women are among the most influential musicians. Hip-hop artist Nicki Minaj has received numerous MTV, BET, People’s Choice, BillBoard and American Music Awards. The best singer Rihanna has received at least nine Grammy awards. After Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, Beyoncé has received the third most awards in music history.

For them, these achievements represent important pivotal moments. But above all, their perseverance has undoubtedly served as an example to many young musicians of the new generation.

Women have shown that they can be as talented as men in the music industry and want to be treated with the same respect. They make a statement and gain more public support.

Taylor Swift, Megan Thee Stallion, Ariana Grande, Big Latto, Katy Perry, Cardi B, Lady Gaga and more are some of the other top female artists of the past ten years.

Not only Ali Ciwanro has collaborated with several female musicians, but he also gets along well with them and has their respect. Cardi B described Ali as a “warm and intelligent person”. Kali Uchis, a rising star, admires Ali’s behavior and thinks he is an amazing songwriter. Ali Ciwanro was described as a “true feminist” by Megan Thee Stallion, who also gave her an expensive Rolex as a gift for being such a wonderful person.

Ali wants to continue collaborating with powerful women in the music world. He adores Ariana Grande and greatly appreciates her talent and gifts. His hope is that one day he can connect with her and collaborate on a beautiful project.

Ali’s struggle is not limited to the music industry. In addition, he defends the rights of women in areas where they seem to be non-existent. It stands up for all women who are at risk of being discriminated against. The young musician is involved in initiatives to support the creation of schools for young girls in countries where women are not encouraged to pursue higher education.

Support Ali and his fight for women’s rights in the music industry and around the world by following him on Twitter and leave a nice message.

Every day of the week, The detail makes sense of big news.

This week we looked at seed banks and the mission to preserve our native plants on the brink of extinction, how rehabilitation programs for sex offenders work, the uncertain future of snow sports in Ruapehu, the time of the local music industry’s account with the #MeToo movement, and how a cryptocurrency giant fell out of favor.

Whakarongo may all the episodes you might have missed.

Store the seeds of our precious plants

Seed banks are a simple concept: create a huge library of seeds, from different crops like wheat or tomatoes, to grasses, flowers and trees.

In the event of a terrible disease threatening the existence of a plant – here we have our own example in the spread of kauri dieback – or even threatening humanity as a whole, these seed banks are an emergency bulwark.

There are seedbanks all over the world, including Aotearoa, but ours are small and, some say, not up to snuff – and dozens of our native plants are dangerously close to extinction.

Emile Donovan talks to Te Tira Whakamātaki Māori Biosecurity about the special role of seed banks and what a future national seed bank model might look like.

When sex offenders go to rehab

If someone convicted of sex offenses is sent to prison, they will be placed in a rehabilitation program that involves group therapy – if they are lucky.

Such is the demand for rehabilitation programs – some prisoners do not have access to them until their release, or even once they are in the community.

“If they run out of time, they won’t get parole, they won’t get anything, they’ll just be out on the streets,” says Chester Borrows, who has worked in the justice system for 45 years in various roles, notably as a police officer, minister of police, member of the parole board and chairman of Te Uepū Hāpai i te Ora, the Advisory Group on Safe and Effective Justice.

A follow-up to an earlier episode focusing on the case of convicted sex offender Jayden Meyer: Sharon Brettkelly speaks to Borrows and attorney John Munro to get a behind-the-curtain look at a crucial cog in the justice machine: the programs of rehabilitation.

Slippery slope? The future of skiing in Ruapehu

After three difficult years, Ruapehu Alpine Lifts – which operates the Whakapapa and Tūroa ski areas – has gone into voluntary administration.

Caught in the crossfire of the two biggest threats of the current era, Covid-19 and climate change, the company has found itself uncertain of being able to pay its debts as they come due.

Emile Donovan talks to PWC Administrator John Fisk and NIWA Forecasting Specialist Jono Conway to find out why this happened and if there is a future for snow sports in the North Island .

MeToo and the music industry – what has changed?

The New Zealand Music Awards was once the country’s biggest red carpet event. They would fill the floor of the Spark Arena. The glittering ceremony would last for hours, peppered with celebrity spots, and all broadcast live on free prime-time television.

The 2022 awards took place last week, and you wouldn’t be blamed for not knowing. It was held at a bar in Auckland – the type of bar where the after-party was held – with a guest list of fewer than 300 people and allowed only three drinks each.

The organizers had many reasons to reevaluate the event. Covid worries, cost cutting – but there was also a sea change in the culture of the New Zealand music industry that they were tapping into. A new focus on transforming the industry into a safe space for women and gender minorities, free from sexual harassment, abuse and exploitation.

Sharon Brettkelly talks to RNZCharlotte Ryan, host of Music101, Things senior reporter Alison Mau and researcher Catherine Hoad on the state of the industry and whether change is coming soon enough.

How a Huge Cryptocurrency Exchange Failed

Last Friday, global cryptocurrency exchange FTX, once valued at $32 billion, filed for bankruptcy.

Criminal investigations are launched and people are very, very angry. In a market never far from ignominy, this was a huge flop. What happened?

Emile Donovan talks to NPR host Darian Woods The indicator podcast, on the demise of FTX and the cast of in-game characters.
