6:00PM  ENTERTAINING SCIENCE: NOW HEAR THIS!
guest-hosted and curated by magician Mark Mitton

Edgar Choueiri, sound recorder;  David Chesky, composer;  Bo Gehring, 3D graphics pioneer
Entertaining Science: Now Hear This! image
We have two ears, and recordings are played in stereo, but we never hear sounds placed in three dimensions like natural hearing. How can we recapture 3D sound for recordings? And what is the audio computer?

Three pioneers of 3D sound are featured.

Princeton University’s Edgar Choueiri’s recent breakthroughs on greater-than- stereo recording were profiled in the January 28th New Yorker.

Composer David Chesky created Chesky Records and HDtracks to deliver his compositions and those of other artists in Hi Res audio.

Bo Gehring went from being a Hollywood 3D graphics pioneer to developing positional applications of 3D sound from the military to video games to nightclubs.

Listen as all three present the fascinating possibilities of 3D sound from their unique perspectives. And learn about the secret history of 3D sound that runs from Hollywood to the military.

Reservations highly recommended. 212 989 9319

Admission $10 + 1 drink

Gerard Edery, Host

Gerard Edery, vocals, guitar
Global Living Room: EDERY SINGS YUPANQUI image

In this new program Gerard Edery presents the songs of Atahualpa Yupanqui(1908-1992) considered to be one of the most influential Argentine folk musicians of the 20th century. Born Héctor Roberto Chavero Aramburo, he adopted the stage name Atahualpa Yupanqui in reverence to two legendary Incan kings. Widely acclaimed for his songwriting, Atahualpa Yupanqui toured extensively throughout Europe in the early 1950s, performing in Paris with Edith Piaf and other luminaries. Nueva cancion artists such as Mercedes Sosa and Jorge Cafrune recorded Atahualpa Yupanqui’s compositions, making him popular among the younger musicians who referred to him as Don Ata.“Edery sings Yupanqui” brings to life the classic stylings of Argentinian folk music. Gerard Edery interprets the sublime poetry of the repertoire, revealing its cultural depth with reverent sensitivity. Gerard’s vocal and instrumental virtuosity and his masterful arrangements create an unforgettable musical experience.

Stoops To Nuts: Story Tellers image
The neighborhood’s awake and talented storytellers & musicians are ready to paint characters and scenes for you.

Barbara Aliprantis, founder of the New York STORY Exchange, began listening to stories “in-utero” and thus is a natural born eavesdropper with the ability to weave what she hears into stories, all with a natural wit and a love of laughter. These gifts have made her the eclectic woman she is today: storyteller/listener, actress, comic, improviser, artist, sign language instructor, a much sought out mentor, and an impresario who loves to put on a show at the drop of a hat. Barbara founded the 2nd Tuesday Series in 1997 with the late Dr. John Kallas and his wife, Judith C. Kallas, a co-owner the Café until her untimely death in March 2012. She dedicates this evening to Judith. www.barbaraaliprantis.com

Stephanie Parello has been a member of the New York STORY Exchange family for many years. Often finding life upside-down, she has been around the world and back. A decade of classical voice training and intense love of music that tells a story, she has been known to burst into song whenever a word or phrase prompts her extensive & eclectic lyrical memory bank. Life is a musical, and surely a funny thing happens on the way to Cornelia Street…

Thelma Ruffin Thomas serves as the Artistic Director of the Pearls of Wisdom. As an independent storyteller, she performs throughout New York City and along the eastern seaboard. She has traveled all over the world telling stories in Tanzania, Brazil, Ghana, Coast Rica, The Gambia, South Africa, Russia, and Australia. She is a founding member of the African Folk Heritage Circle, a member of the Network of Biblical Storytellers, the National Association of Black Storytellers, and the Harlem Arts Alliance

Nick Ulett: Among other things, Nick did seven Ed Sullivan Shows, had a sixteen bar tap break in the musical Me and My Girl on Broadway, was a commentator on All Things Considered, a Creative Director at J Walter Thompson, and has just returned from playing Lady Bracknell in The Importance of Being Earnest. He married four Americans, has three children and three grandsons. Life has been good.

Raj Varma, a New Zealand-born Rajasthani/Punjabi, is an accomplished actor/writer/director with extensive film, theatre and television credits here and abroad. Raj is one half of Those Indian Guys (www.thoseindianguys.com) and since immigrating to America in 2006 has written, produced and appeared in many theatrical productions, including the critically acclaimed one-man show D’Arranged Marriage, performed in many countries world-wide, including sold out performances in NYC.
