During tours, we do our best to cover setlists in real-time on Twitter. If you want to tweet a show in, just DM or @ us on the day and tell us to watch your stream that night.
Tori will be touring in 2014 to support the release of Unrepentant Geraldines. The European legs runs from May through June and the North American legs spans July and August. We do not know if additional dates elsewhere will be added.
On January 9th, The Light Princess’ director Marianne Elliot and designer Rae Smith took place in a platform at The National Theatre to discuss their work on the musical with Rachel Cooke. Audio from that conversation is now available on The National’s Soundcloud page:
If you missed Mark Lawson’s conversation with Tori Amos and Samuel Adamson on yesterday’s Front Row, the archive is now available on BBC iPlayer for the next week. Additionally, the program is also available as a podcast where you can either stream or download it. The direct link to yesterday’s episode is http://downloads.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/radio4/frontrow/frontrow_20131014-2000a.mp3. The podcast is stored indefinitely.
Update: we’ve also clipped it out of the podcast and posted it on SoundCloud for posterity:
The conversation is actually quite an interesting one. Recorded prior to press night for the production, Tori and Sam talk about where the idea for the production came from, the songs (Tori’s demos of most songs exist but locked away in the vault!), the unlikeliness of an album featuring the songs as performed by Tori, the possibility of her reusing some of the songs in her own work, working with Marianne Elliot on the staging, and their thoughts on doing something like this again.
Definitely worth the listen.
While we’re a bit behind on the site (though the Twitter and Facebook feeds are humming along), we’re hoping to get things back up to snuff here shortly. However, one quick note to make sure no one misses it: Tori will be one of Mark Lawson’s guests on his BBC Radio 4 program Front Row today at 7:15 PM BST.
The show will be on iPlayer for the next week if you want to catch it later.
The first episode of the new season features Tori’s performance at Infinity Hall with a string octet, recorded last October. The episode will premiere on CPTV on Friday, July 5th at 10:00 PM with several repeats over the next week.
A list of PBS stations that carry the program with local air times can be found on Infinity Hall Live’s website though, as always, you should check your local listings just to be sure — particularly as several links from that page do not point to the correct station and as several stations that carried the program last season appear to have dropped it.
Note: a quick perusal of some stations’ schedules shows that some will start broadcasting the new season later than CPTV. So don’t be alarmed if you don’t see the show on your local station’s schedule for this coming week. It definitely is on CPTV’s schedule for this weekend though so those of you in the Connecticut market (including yours truly), set your DVRs!
Don’t forget: three videos from the show are already on YouTube, courtesy of CPTV. Check them out here.
We’ve known since the taping last October that the episode of Infinity Hall Live featuring Tori would be airing sometime during the program’s second season in the summer of 2013. Although summer is now knocking on the door, Infinity Hall Live’s website still offers no specifics on when the new season will start but it now seems that Tori’s episode will be the first episode of the new season.
More interestingly though, if you head over to the episode’s page, you’ll find a description of the program that includes a list of the songs that will be in the episode and three complete video clips from the show: “Cloud on my Tongue,” “Jackie’s Strength,” and “Snow Cherries From France.”
Check both the track list and the video out after the jump!
Thanks to Jimmmy and Sean for the tip!
Adam Sweeting sat down for a chat with Tori for classical music website Sinifini Music and they posted a video clip of the conversation on the website yesterday. The discussion ranges from the forthcoming Light Princess musical — which The National Theatre now says will be starting in September — to how Tori started to work within classical music world again on Night of Hunters. Check out the video below:
Tori recently sat down with Pro Motion, a dance music marketing and prodution company involved with Peter Rauhofer’s “Flavor” remixes for an interview. Video of the interview was posted on their blog at the end of this week. During the relatively lengthy, as video interview clips go anyway, piece, she talks about “Flavor,” songwriting, and her thoughts on dance music as well as reminding us that that she’s working on a new non-classical record for 2014.
Check out the interview below:
Unfortunately for those outside France, Belgium and Germany, those streams are unavailable. Fortunately for those outside France, Belgium and Germany, the program has been uploaded to YouTube a couple times so those of us outside the geo-fence can enjoy it too! The best-looking upload is this one from llliquidDiamonds:
Filmed last Autumn, the program follows the two musicians for one night as they meet and interact across the city of Berlin.
Curious? You can get a taste of what the program will be like from three video clips posted on the production company’s website.
The program will be aired late Saturday night (early Sunday morning) on Arte at 1:00 AM in France and at 12:30 AM in Germany. It should be available for viewing online after the broadcast.
Back in the Fall, Tori stopped by the New York City offices of Last.fm and spoke to them about Gold Dust, touring and the life and meaning of songs. Video of the interview was posted was finally on Last.fm’s Originals earlier weekend. Check it out below:
