Tina S Offers a Cover of a 1986 Metal Classic (Metallica “Master of Puppets”)

Metallica to Satie.  (That’s the way I operate…always have.)

Tina is building an interesting (and highly popular) cover oeuvre while mastering a wide variety of essential guitar skills.  This one displays her aggressive and powerful playing and some really formidable lyrical skills.  These lyrical skills are one of the foundations of masterful playing, and I am pleased to hear them here is such clear form and am once again very impressed with this wonderful girl (16 y.o.) whose determination and trajectory appear to be relentless!   Nice, Tina!

This is a video of “Epic Circus” performed at a recording session in L.A. when Renaud and the others were there early this year. Exciting and colorful musical tapestry. This is just one track of an album which will be released soon.

Renaud Louis-Servais Interview (English)

Here is another post from Prog Sphere.  I’ve posted a number of videos and other items of Renaud-Louis-Servais . Some of you may be interested in a recent interview (in English) where he discusses his work, development, musical practices, etc.  I’ve become very interested in Renaud’s work and style during the last couple of years.

[Tina S fans…the largest percentage of my viewers…also may be interested in Tina’s guitar teacher.  Many have wanted to know more about Renaud.]

Milton Babbitt: Portrait of a Serial Composer (Robert Hilferty documentary)

Milton Babbitt (1916-2011)

Composer of serial and electronic music. This documentary was intended to bring his work to a wider appreciative audience.  Is it meaningful?  Does it miss a cultural dimension? (It is unquestionably a fascinating discussion and exploration.)
