Corps340 Podcast #44: Christiane Dolores (aka Madame Dolores)

Posted by Contagious Music on

Our guest today is Christiane Dolores. I first met Christiane when I was on a discussion panel for Fair Play Music Pittsburgh, an initiative to aid a sustainable local music community, that she is involved with. (https://fairplaypittsburghmusic.tumblr.com/)

By day Ms. Dolores is the Artist Relations Manager for the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council. As an artist, Christiane (aka Madame Dolores) prefers to ask the questions rather than give the answers. Today, we pose the questions and Madame D does not disappoint. She’s an award-winning, genre-bending artist. A poet who sings. A songwriter who makes films. And a podcast guest we’ll never forget.

Listen on LibsyniTunes, and Soundcloud.

We’d also like to share Madame D’s link to her indiegogo fundraiser:https://www.indiegogo.com/…/the-pantry-of-salt-and-sugar-a-… please check it out and support the Madame Delores Movement.

Corps340 Podcast #42: John Hinderliter

Posted by Contagious Music on

“People in advertising should never answer the phone on a Friday afternoon. It can only lead to bad things.” Just one of the many life lessons imparted by podcast guest John Hinderliter.

Illustrators aren’t usually known for their conversational skills but John fills a podcast as colorfully as he fills a canvas. John is a broadly drawn character with a razor-edge sense of humor painting a vivid picture of growing up in Atlantic City, the satisfaction of being an art mercenary, and the inspirational power of Tom Waits.

So turn off the phone, download the episode, and have a real happy hour, people.

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.
