Corps340 Podcast #43: Nina Chase

Posted by Contagious Music on

If you’re going over the river and through the woods, here’s something for the ride. Speaking of rivers, today’s guest is Nina Chase, sr. project manager at Riverlife. She’s a gem, incredibly insightful on how we could better use our public spaces. Nina obsesses about connecting people with public spaces. First in Boston, and now on the aggregate walkways of Pittsburgh, Nina sees possibility to improve the quality of life in small and grand ways. On today’s podcast, we discuss the 446 bridges, 700 steps and 3 rivers we navigate every day, but rarely give the consideration they deserve.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

Corps340 Podcast #40: James McNeel

Posted by Contagious Music on

The podcast returns from our fall hiatus and welcomes James McNeel to the studio. In a city bursting with live theater options, Pittsburgh’s City Theatre takes on the challenge of championing new and original plays. We explore the cultural importance of showcasing these new works with James, as well as his personal journey from his Marlinton, West Virginia roots. It feels good to be back.

Italian Street Food

Posted by Contagious Music on

Several months ago Moxie USA asked us to come up with some new original music that fit the brand of their client Piada Italian Street Food. Last month we were asked to revisit that music and update it for a new autumn radio spot. Make it “warmer” was our direction. Here’s what we came up with. Click it!

And here is the original spot for comparison.

Newcomer Hullabaloo Agency trusted us to create original music and sound-design for their client Hop Culture. Here’s the first in a series of web spots! Cool stuff this is and we had lots of fun with multiple fuzz pedals (Prescription Electronics, Big Muff, Ibanez, Seymour Duncan, and Fulltone, getting the right tone for a 57 Gibson Gold Top Les Paul(re-issue) and Vox AC30 amps.

 

Corps340 Podcast #38: Vasilios Scoumis

Posted by Contagious Music on

Vasilios Scoumis left a relatively stable and upwardly mobile position with the Pine Richland School District to start working for the Manchester Academic Charter School, a role which eventually posited him as the CEO of the entire organization. Our discussion centers around the role and debate the charter system inhabits, his unique leadership approaches, the north shore development and the upcoming partnership with MuseumLab, an initiative of The Children’s Museum… and how he almost ended up in Vegas.
