Zoë Keating joined us to talk about her music and how she connects with people online. Zoë is a Classical cellist, who uses the techniques of electronic music using a ‘cello, both recorded and most strikingly live. This Wired video shows how she creates live performances like these at PopTech and SFO Airport. Zoë used to work in tech, but quit to join a rock band on tour.
She sells here music through her website, iTunes (where she has topped the Classicla charts several times) and Amazon. Because she spends a lot of time alone in the studio with a ‘cello and a computer, she is a very active twitter user, and has found collaboratiosn with people including RadioLab, Curt Smith, and a remix project on Terry Reilly’s In C. She first began multitracking herself as she couldn’t find 16 cellists to play all the parts, but now she organizes ‘cello tweetups that play in her style.
We talked about how it is important to always treat people as human online, and not be selling something, but conversing. We also talked about how “the music industry is by definition an operation invented to divert money spent on music away from actual musicians” – Zoë’s music was defined as non-commercial by record labels, but her audience is adequate to support her because she sells direct, without the industry middlemen taking the majority of the money – as Clay Shirky describes.
Thanks to guest game designer Nicole Lazzaro
What we discussed this week.
•Nicole’s thoughts on CES trends. The game world is missing the social experience. Nicole’s ideas on how games create emotion. Daniel Floyd’s great video on why video games are missing a broader female audience. Relational and social thinking is the key. If your goal is to get people engaged and involved then you are beginning to think like a tummler.
•Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg implies that privacy is dead. How does being public help you tummel and engage people?
•Vanity Fair on social media “twilebrities.” Gawker wasn’t impressed either. Anil Dash noted, in a typically thoughtful piece, that no one has over a million followers. We are quite sure than follower numbers don’t matter as much as most people assume they do.
•Tummeling Technique: Heather explained the importance of going first via the infamous Sasquatch Dance Party video. http://tummelvision.tv/2010/01/21/tummelvision-episode-1/
Deb and Kevin chat with two of the women who helped make what gets called “community” in the “web 2.0″ world work. Heather videos in from the airport for a minute. Champ and Oates were both involved in the creation of Flickr, considered the first real “web 2.0″ site and a model of a strong community using social media. There’s no one who knows more about what design and community features and human interactions affect social engagement online. Champ and Oates are insightful and witty. They’re the opposite of Big Brother. But they are watching you.
Kathy Sierra joined us for a great conversation about her biggest passion: you. Note-worthy moments and themes:
• How do you create excellent experiences for users • Clay Shirky’s recent rant about women, wishing they’d show more chutzpah and self-promotion • a useful unself promotion approach to work and social media presence than “personal branding.” It’s certainly working for Kathy. • Why follower counts aren’t the thing to pay attention to • the iPad’s social possibilities both online and between real life and online. • Deb quoted the Talmud tonight, Kathy Sierra Daniel Pink and me QVC. That’s range! • Deb got a cowbell, Heather grabbed a hairbrush and Kevin rocked out • We never wanna get ourselves free. This week’s song is so very cowbell worthy. • Books mentioned: Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience (P.S.)- Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (Kathy dropped his name all casual-like) and Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us – Daniel Pink http://tummelvision.tv/2010/01/31/ep4/
The 80s title of today’s show comes from Stir It Up one of many hits written by our guest Allee Willis who creates in layers, in many mediums and is a pioneering social artist. Allee works in music, video animation, visual art, painting, digital forms, kitsch and in party throwing. Her focus on process and collaboration heart and pioneering tech and web understanding makes her the ur Tummelvision guest (not to mention her collection of 15 cowbells which she pulled out to play with us).
Allee’s full-length bio and very deep and engaging site are worth a real visit to get at the richness and creativity in what she is doing. A short list includes these credits: September, Boogie Wonderland, Theme Song From Friends, score for musical The Color Purple, motorized paintings that go with her hit What Have I Done To Deserve This, kitsch collaboratioins with the Del Rubio Triplets and 90 year old drummer Jerrie
Tummelvision peeps called her the Hugh Hefner of tech upon hearing that Allee has 42,000 terrabytes of data in her own server room.
If you only have time to watch one Tummelvision, make it this one. Although we think it will lead you to more. This awesome conversation made it clear that Tummelvision is picking up on a path Allee began to cut as early as 1991 to focus attention in Silicon Valley and Hollywood on the collaborative possibilities of art that is networked and never-ending.
She’s offered to come back and we’d like to find a way for everyone who’s part of the budding Tummelvison community to collaborate on a song or playing music together live. Any suggestions or software or platform recommendations are welcome.
Give the show a listen (video coming soon) and check out Allee’s stuff and buy some. to enjoy it and support her ability to make more. And let us know how you’d like to do a mass collaboration with her and Tummelvision. http://tummelvision.tv/2010/02/05/got-to-shake-it-up-now-w-allee-willis-tummelvision-5/
