Odyssey Records presents: Chungking Express

Chungking Express is a 1994 Hong Kong drama film written and directed by Wong Kar-wai.[3] The film consists of two stories told in sequence, each about a lovesick Hong Kong policeman mulling over his relationship with a woman. The first story stars Takeshi Kaneshiro as a cop obsessed with his breakup with a woman named May, and his encounter with a mysterious drug smuggler (Brigitte Lin). The second stars Tony Leung as a police officer roused from his gloom over the loss of his flight attendant girlfriend (Valerie Chow) by the attentions of a quirky snack bar worker (Faye Wong).

"Chungking" in the title refers to Chungking Mansions in Tsim Sha Tsui, where Wong grew up in the 1960s. "Express" refers to the food stand Midnight Express, located in Lan Kwai Fong, an area in Central, Hong Kong.

$5 Admission. Popcorn and drinks will be for sale

Hearing Trees | Cedar and Pine, Matt Moskal

Hearing Trees | Cedar and Pine, Matt Moskal

Hearing Trees (Winnipeg) brings their debut album "Quiet Dreams" to London, come hang out with Cedar and Pine and Matt Moskal for a great night of music.

LISTEN to "We're All Puppets" http://hyperurl.co/wereallpuppets

Hearing Trees' lush, layered brand of ambient and anxious rock is built atop a foundation inspired by genre stalwarts like R.E.M., Matthew Good, and The Tragically Hip and tinged with the more modern and atmospheric musings of Wintersleep and The National. Coupled with sometimes cryptic, always captivating poetry, Hearing Trees offers a true masterclass in sweet-sounding catharsis.

"This is epic indie, pretty and admirable in equal doses. Signals the arrival of a new force, a band we can all get behind." mp3hugger


Cedar and Pine - Indie/Alternative Rock
With Mr. Derek's catchy melodies and honest lyrics all bound together with the chaotic musicianship of Mr. Tyse's 'one man rhythm section', they push the limits of what two dudes can do. With a truly unique live performance, the band is definitely one of a kind. Come see it for yourself!

Vocal Masterclass for singers/songwriters III

Vocal Masterclass for singers/songwriters III

What is a masterclass?
It's a very typical way that university and college teach performance in a group setting. All the students of an instructor gather together and watch colleagues get coaching and instructing from their teacher. It's mostly one to one, but the students auditing can ask questions. 

I'll coach singer/songwriters on vocal technique, comping and stagecraft. Collaborating with the artist, I'll help tweak lyrics and melodies to make hooks stick and the voice shine! Asking questions strongly encouraged!

Last masterclass, we covered everything from tone (twang to money notes), getting to know "your room", how to cut through crowd noise - well, and a whole lot of other useful things!

Participants can sign up by PMing me, Gina Farrugia
please prepare one song. Mic and PA provided - please bring your own guitar (you'll feel more comfortable that way too!)

IMDb: "In NYC's Chinatown, recluse math genius Max (Sean Gullette) believes "everything can be understood in terms of numbers," and he looks for a pattern in the system as he suffers headaches, plays Go with former teacher Sol Robeson (Mark Margolis), and fools around with an advanced computer system he's built in his apartment. Both a Wall Street company and a Hasidic sect take an interest in his work, but he's distracted by blackout attacks, hallucinations, and paranoid delusions." 

Wikipedia: "Pi (stylized as π) is a 1998 American psychological thriller film written and directed by Darren Aronofsky in his directorial debut. Pi was filmed on high-contrast black-and-white reversal film and earned Aronofsky the Directing Award at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival, the Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay and the Gotham Open Palm Award."
