Our goal is to continue to expand our footprint of creativity by offering more opportunities for artists.” All Sound Bar evenings take place at the Live Gallery Cafe in New York Live Arts ‘ ground floor lobby.The Live Gallery Cafe will serve happy hour drink specials and a menu of savory bites from 6:00 – 9:00pm on Sound Bar evenings.

Listing info: 219 W 19th Street, New York, NY 10011 About Sound Bar: The newly launched Sound Bar is a Mondays-only happy hour lounge. New York Live Arts has teamed up with local musicians and artists to bring free performances to our lobby on West 19th Street in a casual lounge atmosphere. For its inaugural series, New York Live Arts has invited conductor Ransom Wilson and his ensemble LE TRAIN BLUE to develop evenings of acoustic music that vary from a rap cantata to an imaginative percussion quartet. About LE TRAIN BLEU: LE TRAIN BLEU is a new musical collective formed by conductor and flutist Ransom Wilson. The musicians are among the most exciting young players in New York and are chosen for their brilliance as well as their expressive qualities. In the 2011-12 season they were a resident ensemble at the Galapagos Art Space, where they presented a three-concert series of new and interesting music. The New York Times said of their debut performance: “Under Mr. Wilson ‘s baton, the Train Bleu ensemble was both incisive and joyous in execution.” They collaborated with the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company at the Baryshnikov Arts Center and recorded their first album. Last season they presented their first New York series concert at DROM, performed at the River to River and Arts and Ideas festivals and joined forces with opera moderne for Viktor Ullman’s posthumous masterpiece Der Kaiser von Atlantis. This season brings a week with the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company , a Britten anniversary production with opera moderne and two series concerts at DROM.

Carrie Underwood Preps To Go Live With ‘The Sound Of Music’
Pure Connect has been designed to work seamlessly with Pure’s Jongo multiroom music system and uniquely offers users free access to live and on-demand radio content; as well as their own music collection and a subscription music service enabling millions of tracks to be streamed throughout their home with the option to listen offline. Jongo is the first multiroom system to deliver the sync performance and quality of a wired system in a wireless setting, and is a superior technological solution compared to others on the market today.(2) Pure has developed Jongo to be a truly multi-platform system to cater for the increase in smartphone and tablet ownership. The majority of Americans (56 percent) now own a smartphone and 34 percent of American adults also own a tablet.(3) Jongo can be controlled via both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets while Pure Connect can be enjoyed through these devices and PCs making the system incredibly flexible and accessible to the mainstream. “More than half of U.S. consumers surveyed indicated they would be likely to buy a product like Jongo and engage with streaming digital music, but currently Internet radio and on demand music services represent a relatively small proportion of total U.S. radio listening(4),” said Noam Meppen, Pure’s Director of Sales, US. “This leaves a huge audience who want to try streaming but haven’t found the right product or service. We’ve developed Jongo and Pure Connect to work seamlessly together to cater for this mainstream audience and the way people want to listen to music now.” The Next Wave in Consumer Audio Audio has been a key consumer category in recent years with first the boom in iPod docking systems and then the recent explosion in Bluetooth speakers and premium headphones for casual listening. Wi-Fi multiroom speakers, which are suited for a more immersive and connected listening experience, are poised to be the ‘next big thing’ in consumer audio and will represent a growing part of the wireless speaker market, which will eclipse the speaker dock market. By 2017 the global market for wireless speakers is expected to reach 18.5m units, compared to a speaker dock market of 16.7m units by this time.(5) “Digital music consumption is at a tipping point and mainstream consumers are starting to embrace streaming,” continued Noam Meppen. “These music fans are looking for an effortless way to stream their music collection and Pure has addressed this in a way that no one else has so far. Pure Connect and Jongo integrates live radio (which is consumed by over 240 million adults in the U.S and the single greatest way for consumers to discover new music), millions of streamable tracks, and your own digital music collection, which is significant as digital files have now surpassed the CD, Vinyl or Cassette combined as a more common means of listening to audio. (6) The integration of all this content with Pure’s Jongo multiroom speaker system adds up to the killer combination that consumers need to propel them into the wireless streaming age.” Pure Connect & Jongo Pure Connect transforms smartphones and tablets into the ultimate remote control for Pure’s Jongo multiroom speaker system allowing users to listen to beautifully synchronized audio throughout the home. Jongo multiroom speakers benefit from Pure’s excellence in audio, streaming and synchronization technology making Jongo one of the most advanced multiroom speaker systems available. The family consists of the Jongo A2 wireless hi-fi adapter; Jongo S3 rechargeable, portable wireless speaker; Jongo T2 and Jongo T6 wireless multiroom speakers. Currently, one of the only systems to offer both wireless multiroom and casual Bluetooth streaming, Jongo offers users the best of both worlds and a truly immersive experience. Users can simply add extra Jongo speakers or adapters on the same Wi-Fi network to build their multiroom system. The Jongo multiroom speaker system is available now in approximately 2,800 Walmart stores and on Walmart.com, in addition to more than 300 Best Buy locations and can be ordered now online at Amazon.com. Please visit http://www.pure.com and http://www.pureconnect.com for more information. Editor’s Notes (1) Pure Connect transforms smartphones or tablets into the ultimate Jongo remote control.
