'BTS Dishes About Their US Tour, Songwriting Process, & Onstage Style'

TWIST: What are you most excited about for your return to the US?

BTS: The size of the tour got much bigger than last time we were in the US back in 2015. It’s almost 10-fold this time. 5 arena shows in 3 cities sold out in less than 5 minutes! We’re amazed by the fact fans in the USA are passionate and supportive and we’re super excited to come back to meet them all.

TWIST: What is the most exciting part of touring around the world, and what has been the most challenging so far?

BTS: The most exciting part of touring around the world is that you get the unique opportunity to meet different people from various background. Regardless of their differences, they sing BTS songs in unison and cheer for us, and it is very special experience for all of the band. On the other hand, the most challenging part has been the life on the road, being far away from our family and friends for weeks.

TWIST: Which of your songs are you most looking forward to performing on this part of the tour?

Rap Monster: “Spring Day.” I wrote the main melody for the lead single for the first time and also wrote lyrics.

SUGA: “Spring Day.” I wrote main lyrics based on my personal experience with old friends. It is about my sad memories with him and it makes me sentimental whenever I listen to the song.

Jungkook: “Not Today.” It has the coolest beat of all songs in the album and I personally like the choreography for the song.

J-Hope: “FIRE.” It has always been my favorite and the song has all the essence of BTS can show to the audience on stage.

TWIST: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve gotten in your career?

Rap Monster: “If you’re tied up with not gaining approval from others, you’ll never be able to move forward.”

TWIST: How would you say you and your sound have evolved over the years since first forming the group?

BTS: BTS sound has evolved since our debut in 2013 but has rooted its music in western pop music and hip-hop. We try to adapt all the hottest trends in pop music scene and that’s why fans around the world like it despite the cultural differences. All members listen to different genres of music all the time, from EDM, hip-hop, R&B to hip-house… and we believe BTS is kind of creating a new category of music genre beyond K-Pop.

TWIST: Do you remember the first song you ever wrote, what it was about, and what inspired you to write it?

Rap Monster: I don’t remember the name of the song, but there was an online community of amateur rappers who gathered together. I downloaded a beat from another amateur beat maker and I wrote a song based off of that. The song didn’t really make much sense, I just wrote it using every hard word I possibly knew. I actually found the song 2 years ago on my computer and listened to it thinking “What is this?” It was a mess.

TWIST: Have you ever written a song in a strange or unusual place? Or been inspired by something totally random?

Rap Monster: So many, I think I wrote a song while I was at the Grand Canyon in 2009. I had a trip to Vegas/Grand Canyon and I think I wrote a song there because I was shocked by the scenery. I definitely don’t remember what it was about though.

TWIST: Who are some artists that you would love to collaborate with?

BTS: There are so many artists we would love to collaborate with, such as Drake, J Cole, Justin Bieber… The list goes on and on.

TWIST: Which other artists/songs are on your personal playlists?

BTS: Drake “Fake Love”, The 1975, Kehlani, Lorde.

TWIST: How would you describe your personal fashion senses?

BTS: It’s mix of gothic and Japanese street wear. My recent favorite brands are WTAPS, Neighborhood and Yoji Yamamoto.

TWIST: And how does your personal style differ from the costumes you wear onstage?

BTS: Onstage clothing for BTS is custom-made to maximize our performance while being matched with the concept of each song.

TWIST: What is it like when fans recognize you on the street/ask for photos? Is it crazy? Surreal? Overwhelming?

Rap Monster: It’s a really nice experience to have somebody who knows me, but sometimes I like to be alone and hang around the city. I think it depends on the situation. There are some situations that I want to not be noticed by others, but people easily notice me. I’ve been told that I’m too unique (my walk and my clothes) and I’m easy to recognize, and I think that’s really nice. If I’m an artist or an idol and nobody knows me that would be sad.

TWIST: Can you share a fun fact about one of your other band members that you don’t think even the most dedicated fans will know?

Rap Monster: Many people think that SUGA is like the Grandfather of the group, but he acts more like a little kid. Jimin is the opposite, he looks like a baby but inside he’s mature and like a Grandfather.

BTS Dishes About Their US Tour, Songwriting Process, & Onstage Style

K-Pop fans worldwide are obsessed with chart-topping musical sensation BTS – made up by Rap Monster, Jin, SUGA, V, J-Hope, Jimin, and Jungkook –  and not without great cause.

YO ARTISTS

Love Steve/Bucky? Love American Gods? Wanna collaborate on a fic with less grumpy old dudes and more canoodling? Have deep fondness for Bucky Barnes with long, luscious hair? I’M YOUR PAL.

I currently have about 12K of a Steve/Bucky American Gods AU/crossover WIP that I started last year, and I’m looking for artists who’d like to collab with me on the fic. I already have the awesome @redwriteblue on board, and I’m more than glad to get any other interested artist to join! My 12K is so far very little plot but a lot of descriptions of Bucky’s lush hair and great taste in interior design.

Estimated word count will probably be around 20-25K. Since there are several big bangs going on, the working schedule for this fic is very flexible. I’m looking for people who’d like to bounce ideas for the plot and characters. This requires knowledge of what happens in the book, since the plot is more or less following American Gods’s general plot.

Interested? Message me for any questions or for a more detailed plot summary! I’m an excellent writer and clearly not afraid of tooting my own horn, I love yelling about fics and ideas, and my awesome collaboration credentials can 100% be backed by @sulasaferoom and @misspaperjoker with whom I’ve worked for Cap Reverse Big Bang 2017 and Stucky Big Bang 2016, respectively. (Tell only nice things about me if someone asks, guys, okay.)

I appreciate all the signal boosts that I can get, so thanks in advance!

This is my piece for the ML End Card Artist Collaboration–I got Rogercop! It turned out way better than i thought it would so I’m very pleased :3 

Thank you SO MUCH @peachbunni for inviting me! (i honestly thought i wouldn’t get picked so this means so much–;w;)

Evans Omondi ‘Omosh Kindeh’ (Kenyan, 1980-2015), Untitled, circa 2014, Acrylic on vinyl sheet

The son of a career officer in the Kenya Army, Omosh Kindeh joined Kuona Trust Centre for Visual Arts in the late 1990s, straight out of Moi Forces High School. At Kuona he studied sculpting under older artists such as Elijah Ogira and Wanjohi Nyamu and also painted with Ngene Mwaura. Alongside his rigorous studio practice Kindeh fostered long and close collaborative relationships with numerous artists.

At their shared Love Shack studio, Kindeh and his fellow artist Edward ‘Chiselhands’ Okero formulated and produced the landmark sculpture exhibitions Winter Warmer I at Kuona Trust Gallery in 2009 and its sequel Winter Warmer II. These shows marked a resurgence of contemporary sculpture, with participation from Peter Walala, Dennis Muraguri, Kepha Mosoti, Kota Otieno and Peter Kenyanya Oendo.

Kindeh’s long running painting series of urban working class housing estates won the Manjano Visual Art Competition in 2013, with the diptych Concrete Jungle, and earned him another name; ‘Urban Planner’. Later on, from 2014 to 2015, he worked with Kibera-based collectives Maasai Mbili and the Jolly Boys Kibera Social Club, where he filmed from the balcony hours of day and night events occurring in Kibera, and the visible Nairobi Southlands landscape beyond. These films were often shown at his studio on the Samsung camera on which they were shot.

Kindeh worked on this large-scale painting of Kayole, Eastlands for a long time during this period.

He took part in numerous workshops and residencies at home and abroad, including the Probe lecture series and workshops held in Nairobi in 2008.

They’re going to be cats in my @gemanimate shot. These are the drawings I did while messing around with how they’ll look. The two that happen to be colored aren’t necessarily the final looks, I should’ve messed more with color just because it’s what you do I guess. But toonboom is easy with color so whatever.  

Unsurprisingly, the shot I asked for is mostly EFX, the gems barely move, but they’re all in it. I like cats a lot more than almost anything else, so there you go. 

Imagine Dragons Get Woke On Socially Charged ‘Evolve’

From forbes.com:

It’s a Tuesday night and a couple of hundred lucky fans are at the Santa Monica offices of You Tube to watch Imagine Dragons perform a private show in celebration of the band’s third album, Evolve, due June 9, and fall North America arena tour, which includes a date at the Hollywood Bowl (October 1).

This kicks off a busy promotional push for the Las Vegas alternative band, who have become one of the biggest rock acts of the decade with a Grammy Award, five Billboard Music Awards and a barrage of sales platitudes, including Billboard Rock Artist of the year in 2013 and Sirius XM Breakthrough Artist of the Year, as well as Spotify’s most streamed album and track from that year for “Radioactive.”

This weekend they’ll be playing in Los Angeles at KROQ’s Weenie Roast alongside Lorde, Incubus and more as well as the Billboard Music Awards this Sunday in Las Vegas. With each appearance this time, however, Reynolds and his band mates will be delivering a message of social consciousness. Now the father of three, including five-week old twins, Reynolds wants to deliver a message of equality and love his kids can be proud of down the line.

I spoke with Reynolds and guitarist Daniel Wayne Sermon about the new album, the greatest political songwriters and Kendrick Lamar.

Steve Baltin: Will tonight be the first time you play new material live?

Dan Reynolds: Two of the songs this will be the first time playing them tonight cause there are three new songs we’ve released. We’ve released “Believer,” then “Thunder” and “Whatever It Takes.” And so “Thunder” and “Whatever It Takes” we’ve never played live, gonna be a doozy.

A warm, toasty fire lit up the lone fireplace, bright flames prominently reflected in a mismatch of red and liquid gold eyes.

Akashi battled with sleep as he laid on the carpet, snuggled under a blanket with a pillow to his chest. The clock ticked away to the seconds nearing midnight, and Kuroko, who was comfortably settled beside him, had been preoccupied with his book for the last couple of hours before then.

Although Akashi did not mind the lack of exchange — as both of them had been accustomed to the comfort of each other’s mere presence by now — dozing off to the silence was inevitable at such a time.

It was simply too quiet and he was getting bored.

domino effect:
an expression meaning that if one person is affected or acting in a certain way, those surrounding it will do the same.

One by one, the cast began to arrive at the Richard Rogers theatre and Daveed took the liberty of introducing you to everyone as they entered. Everyone was friendly towards you as you exchanged introductions and you couldn’t help but feel the need to befriend every single one of them.

Each cast member also stopped by Lin’s dressing room, having received an urgent text from him earlier in the day. Everyone except Daveed, that is.The text read:

Need you to stop by my room once you get here, IMPORTANT MATTERS TO DISCUSS!

P.S. make sure Daveed and his new friend don’t see this text, keep them occupied. CRUCIAL TO THE MISSION!

tositandadmire  asked:

Sea my Dear I am on the train thinking about Louis, his lightning voice, and his song writing. I was thinking about Just Hold On, and how it is the first time we have heard Louis (with his collaborators) write for his own voice. I mean voice in two ways, in the sense of a singing voice and telling a story that is his. So the questions I have for you are - do you think how he has written Just Hold On is different from his other work because of this? And what would you like to see him do next?

Hi Bec!

Thank you for asking!

In terms of technical songwriting, a solo work can be tailored to an individual voice more so than a song for One Direction. Just Hold On is higher in range because Louis has a higher tessatura than his band mates. He’s comfortable singing a B4 in his chest voice, the highest note in JHO.

In Louis’s performance, Just Hold On shows a very intimate quality, even though it’s a dance song set to EDM beats.

I’m not hugely experienced in EDM, but I went through and listened to ten Steve Aoki songs, and JHO is very different. The background beats/ bass are softer, less strident. A review mentioned that “future bass” was not used–I had to look up what that was. I realized that the bass, the percussive quality of EDM, was less loud in JHO, compared to most other EDM.

I think the reason is to allow Louis’s voice to come to the foreground. A lot of EDM songs are with rappers, and their voices add a percussive, rhythmic layer to the songs, and the human voice interplays with the electronic beats.

Louis’s JHO is not about rhythm; it’s a ballad about a story. In that way, it’s much more like other songs he has written, like Love You Goodbye, where the focus is on storytelling.

Speaking of stories, I am reminded that JHO has a very “Louis” quality that I’m not sure how to put into words. I think this is why fans love him, even if they don’t know his back story. It’s the feeling that you understand how he feels–that he’s singing for you, personally. His emotional, whispery, raspy delivery and the simple intimacy of the lyrics draws the listener in to his life. Even if you’re standing in a crowded dance floor, somehow this quality comes through (as I felt in Lottie’s Snapchat at the afterparty, and as I feel wherever I hear this song playing).

And of course we can understand all of these complex feelings–how can we not? We all dread our own mortality, but even worse is a life cut short, a contraction of time, when everything you want to experience with someone becomes compressed into months, instead of decades. Jay was young (18) when she had Louis. For Louis, losing her was losing both a parent and a lifelong best friend, at a time when his professional life was just peaking. Not only was the time spent together so short, but it must have been terrible to witness Jay undergo and fail painful medical treatments.

Yet in the midst of that unbearable sorrow, comes a voice of comfort, hope, reassurance. I think this is the “Louis” quality– to be protective and consoling in a time of sadness. It’s very special in songwriting. Most songs are very inward-looking– very focused on the singer, which invites listeners to identify with the singer. Louis’s songs often offer an outward embrace from him, a reassurance that 1) what you feel is not wrong, and 2) there’s hope. The best example is the song Home, which was criminally left off MITAM (but got its own fan project, as it deserved).

A Louis songwriting characteristic is the use of off-beat syncopation in the verse, and downbeats in the chorus. Another characteristic is the use of strong iambic meter in the pre-chorus and chorus:

What do you do when when a chapter ends
Do you close the book, and never read it again?

The sun goes down and it comes back up
The world it turns no matter what

Compare to:

All I know at the end of the day is you want what you want and you say what you say
And you’ll follow your heart even though it’ll break
Sometimes
All I know at the end of the day is love who you love
There ain’t no other way
If there’s something I’ve learnt from a million mistakes
You’re the one that I want at the end of the day


What would I like to see Louis do? What a fantastic question! A few things:

1. His own solo album. We can all agree now that Louis’s voice has enough fan support and popular appeal to carry a solo album. His voice is versatile–we’ve heard it soft and folksy (I Want to Write You A Song), loud and rambunctious (No Control), heartbroken (Just Hold On), in love (Truly Madly Deeply). The ability to reveal emotion is unique to Louis. I’d love to hear him explore his potential.

2. Collaborate with other artists. His songwriting talent should make him a strong partner in music.

3. Produce music. I know there’s a potential girl band in the works. I don’t know what capacity Louis is working with them, but I’d love to see him in control of production and bring more artists to the public.

4. Acting. Yes, I mean it. Would LOVE to see him do this.

5. Public service. He would be a great British representative for international aid organizations such as UNICEF. It would increase his visibility, but he would also do a wonderful job. He was born to do it.

Thanks again!

When Colors Unite
Illustration by: Albert Lee Reyes


Red:

Love and joy, these I stand for;

Give them respect, not sore.

Be someone they justly adore,

Thus, they shall return the favor.


Orange:

Let them live with cheer and adventure.

Grant their rights and be mature.

Burden shall quell, accept their nature;

These make them feel pure.


Yellow:

Light from beyond is my name—

Glowing passionately without a flame;

Bestow them bliss, and do not shame;

They are humans, not lame.


Green:

Life is my terrene representation—

Growing with sanguinity and affection,

But without acceptance, I shall fade,

That is why you must stop to evade.


Blue:

Listen to the serenity of the sky;

Genuinely recognize their cry,

Believe when they say how and why,

Trust them and they shall fly.


Indigo:

Learn and value, these are my reminders;

Gaze their inner beauty and do not wonder.

Behold their integrity and success—

Things that will not make them feel less.


Violet:

Lead yourself to an equal path,

Going against harsh aftermath;

Be just, be an advocate of change

That defines true courage.
