    WEBCAST TODAY: “…And He Will Be Our Brother” #Syria Medical Benefit Concert @sams_usa 

    LivestreamToday Tuesday November 29 2016 at 7:30pm the Syrian American Medical Society Foundation (SAMS) will hold “…And He Will Be Our Brother” – a jazz concert to benefit with the aim of raising funds that will help SAMS to continue their work of providing medical care, supplies and training to doctors in Syrian conflict zones, as well as to lead projects that will strengthen and protect hospitals from future attacks. Musicians playing include Edmar Castañeda, Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts, Kevin Hays, Gregoire Maret, John Ellis, Matt Clohesy, Magos Herrera, Vitor Gonçalves, Rogerio Boccato and the Asaran Earth Trio. The concert’s title (“…And He Will Be Our Brother”) was inspired by a letter of a 6-year old American boy to President Barack Obama. In the letter, the little boy asked to welcome Omran Daqneesh, the 5-year-old Syrian boy from Aleppo- whose image sitting in an ambulance covered in blood and dust shocked the world- into his home in the U.S. “We will give him a family, and he will be our brother”, he said. The Internet Society New York Chapter will sponsor the live webcast of this event on the Internet Society Livestream Channel.

    What: “…And He Will Be Our Brother”
    Where: St Peter’s Church, 619 Lexington Ave NYC
    When: Tuesday November 29 2016 7:30pm-9:30pm EST | 00:30-02:30 UTC (Nov 30)

    VIDEO: #BitcoinforRockstars – a fireside chat – @Aram Sinnreich with @DAWallach 

    Bitcoin for RockstarsOn Sunday 25 January 2015, at 4pm the Internet Society’s New York Chapter(ISOC-NY) presented “Bitcoin for Rockstars – a fireside chat with D.A. Wallach” at TurnToTech NYC. The traditional existing methods of registering works and distributing music royalties are archaic, arcane, inefficient, and unsuited to the global networked marketplace. D.A. Wallach recently proposed that a decentralized, open, global ledger, based on bitcoin style blockchain technology, as an optimal solution for credits and rights information about music. Then a system of “smart contracts” could facilitate the distribution of funds. Thus:

    In the proposed music rights network, each song, recording, rights-holder, creator, and payor would have its own unique address on the ledger. And complimenting this ledger would be “smart contracts,” programmatic rules defining how the addresses relate to each other and automating their interactions. For example, Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” would have its own address, as would Katy Perry herself, each of her collaborators, and each of the companies entitled to royalties from the song. One set of “smart contracts” could connect all of these addresses to one another.

    Spotify, YouTube and other services could then issue all-in royalty micro-payments (aggregating all negotiated fees) directly to the “Dark Horse” address every time the song is played. The smart contracts connected to the “Dark Horse” address would recognize the source of the payment—say, Spotify—and then instantly split and redirect royalties to all the addresses entitled to payments from the service for the song. Katy Perry, her label, her publisher, and her collaborators would all have total visibility into payments received by the “Dark Horse” address, and each would receive its shares instantly in its own wallet. This software-based relay station for royalty and licensing payments would put creators at the center of the action, allowing them to understand how much money their works were generating, and from which services or licensees. It would also give artists and songwriters instant access to the funds generated by their work, obviating the long waiting periods they currently endure.

    We invite you,to join D.A. Wallach and ISOC-NY to explore this fascinating concept! Our interlocutor was Aram Sinnreich of Rutgers University. author of the Piracy Crusade.

    Tokyo location: Loopline 日本〒151-0051, 東京都渋谷区千駄ヶ谷1丁目21−6 (map)

    If you cannot attend the performance in either NYC or Tokyo, you can listen to the mix stream here:

    “Communication with music can reach beyond borders both defined and perceived. Expressing this to its fullest potential is a new interactive & music event called “Synchro.” Making the connections across two sides of the globe are Tokyo and New York. These two meccas of avant-garde and cutting edge technology will provide a base for this new challenge in online collaboration. A new object called Synchrobot will be present to document the event in real-time, adding an element of atmosphere and inter-connectedness for the sake of viewers and performers on both sides. Two graphic artists make different objects based on the same way of thinking. New York’s SUPERCORE and Tokyo live space LOOPLINE will be the launching pad for this truly unique musical vision. We are going to be ONE.”
