A compilation film of Pathé newsreel clips from 1920 to 1972 captures Britain's complex relationship with the Caribbean culture of the time
'It is interesting to know that nine tons of sugar cane produce one ton of sugar, sufficient for a quarter of a million cups of tea, or thereabouts." The awfully proper tones that impart this particular nugget belong to Bob Danvers-Walker, for years the narrator of Pathé newsreels. Surely also the model for Harry Enfield's Mr Cholmondley-Warner, he may not be familiar by name, but the voice is instantly evocative: the clipped precision, the jauntiness, the terrible puns. His unique delivery is the unlikely star of a curious and compelling new film, which takes the curatorial art of the compilation album and applies it winningly to the moving image.
With a touch of Danvers-Walker formality to its title, Mirror to the Soul: Music, Culture and Identity in the Caribbean »

Veteran music engineer and producer Andy Johns died in Los Angeles over the weekend. He was 61.
During his illustrious career, Johns -- whose brother and nephew, respectively, are fellow producers Glyn Johns and Ethan Johns -- worked on such classic albums as Led Zeppelin's "II," the Rolling Stones' "Sticky Fingers" and Joni Mitchell's "Shadows and Light," Variety.com reports.
According to CNN, Johns was hospitalized late last month. The cause of his death is still unknown.
Born in Surrey, England, Johns began his decades-long career as a tape operator at the famed Olympic Studios in London, where he worked on sessions for the Jimi Hendrix Experience's "Axis: Bold as Love."
"In those days you could go into one studio and Joe Cocker was working, and then you're working with Jimi Hendrix in Studio One, or down the corridor Eric Clapton is doing something," Johns once said of his early Olympic Studios days, »

The reason - he's rediscovered his songwriting muse after nearly two decades of self-described writer's block, and the eleven songs on the album 'Time' are all from his own pen.
Rod Stewart has found his songwriting skills again after two decades
The Grammy-winning legend was in reflective mood as he introduced each of the tracks, explaining how the album came about after his old friend Jimmy Cregan persuaded him to engage in a casual writing session. "I didn't want to do it, but he played some chords, and I sang some notes, and here we are. We wouldn't be here but for Jim."
Stewart, who has preferred to spend recent years covering other people's songs to lucrative effect, »

BBC Four has confirmed the details of Goodbye Television Centre, a final 120-minute show bidding farewell to the broadcaster's iconic building.
Airing in March, the show will celebrate the BBC's flagship studios, looking back at events such as the power cut on the launch night of BBC Two, and visiting the studios used for Monty Python's parrot sketch, Del Boy's living room, Miranda's shop and the corridors that Alan Partridge ran down with his stolen Stilton.
Developers unveil plans for west London site to be redeveloped as about 1,000 new homes, a hotel and other facilities
Licence fee payers will soon be able to watch, listen, and live in BBC Television Centre in west London after plans were unveiled to turn the famous doughnut-shaped inner ring of the complex into executive apartments.
The cost of the development is likely to be about £500m and is expected to be worth £1bn when completed.
The plans were due to go live at television-centre.com on Tuesday, and will be submitted to Hammersmith & Fulham Council over the next six months.
BBC shows such as Strictly Come Dancing will return to the newly refurbished site, but large swaths of the corporation's staff and output have already left and are not coming back.
They include programmes such as Blue Peter, which moved to the corporation's new BBC North HQ in Salford, home to BBC Children's, »

Part 3: Midi Composing
Okay, so we’ve covered the basic features of Studio One, and we know how to make a scoring template for composing.
Now it is time to show you the actual Midi options and workflow of Studio One for composers.
Before I start, I want to say one thing: Studio One is not designed for film composers, so its Midi features lack the power of Logic or Digital Performer, because it is a relatively young Daw (Version 2.5). But, I am pretty confident that Studio One 3 will bring on the “heavy weapons”.
Having said that, let’s get this thing started.
Midi tracks in Studio One are called Instrument Tracks. You add an Instrument track by right clicking in the light gray area to the left of the project window, and click the Instrument Track option in the drop menu.
If you want to add multiple Instrument Tracks, »
