Shakespeare's Birthday Celebrations

Posted by

The internet’s reaction to Shakespeare’s birthday/christening last weekend was amazing; there was the hilarious #Shakespearebands encouraged by CBC music in Canada, BuzzFeed gave us 23 ways to celebrate, and then “master magician Teller (the silent half of Penn and Teller) and playwright Aaron Posner” give us an “unusual” reimagining of Shakespeare’s The Tempest in a new Vegas spectacular.

According to NPR, the show features music by Tom Waits and wife Kathleen Brennan and follows the success of the team’s 2008 Macbeth production. In the production’s opening-night remarks, Teller says “It’s just got about every bit of entertainment you could possibly want.”

The show’s initial Vegas run actually wrapped up the 27th, but it’ll move to the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA from May 11-June 15. Read the details, and see reviews at NPR.org!

SongHunters Testimonials

  • "I'm one of the top Indie songwriter/producers in Canada with a catalog of over 250 songs. The SongHunters - Doug Diamond, Dave Weiss & Dave Hnatiuk, are always emailing me asking for submissions for their placement opportunities. They listen attentively to each of my submissions and end up getting me a synch license every so often - the last one with Airwalk Shoes. These guys are professional, helpful, and prompt with communication, working hard to get my music placed.  And they're nice guys too! Thanks SongHunters!"

SCH10174 Music Supervision

Available at Amazon.com

The newly revised, definitive book on music supervision, which guides you through real-world scenarios and legal landmines, explores sound design, and profiles key players.

Music supervision, or matching music to all the different mediums from films to ring tones, is one of the fastest-growing careers in the music industry, but finding the winning song for a national ad campaign or compiling a platinum movie soundtrack takes more than just good taste. Music supervision today requires serious multi-tasking and the ability to navigate licensing, relationships, and cultural trends with ease. This book guides you through real scenarios and legal landmines you might encounter; it explores sound design and profiles key players with insightful interviews, while providing project form templates that will save time for seasoned music supervisors.

This is the only guide to the career of music supervision and is ideal for the music student, musician, industry executive and of course, for those who want to break into the field of music supervision. Authors David Weiss, Ramsay Adams and David Hnatiuk are all renowned figures in the procurement and supervision of music and they apply their combined knowledge and experience to give the best possible advice and tell you how to get the job!
