BALTIMORE, MD, USA, October 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jewish Film Project will livestream “I Danced for the Angel of Death: The Dr. Edith Eva Eger Story” to the public on November 3, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. The film will be followed by a virtual conversation with Dr. Eger and Talli Dippold from the Stan Greenspon Holocaust and Social Justice Education Center.

The free livestream event is sponsored by the Jewish Film Project, the Stan Greenspon Holocaust and Social Justice Education Center, and the Holocaust Education Film Foundation in support of The Sustainable Education in Creative Storytelling Fund.

Produced by the Holocaust Education Film Foundation, “I Danced for the Angel of Death: The Dr. Edith Eva Eger Story” is a one-hour autobiographical film about Holocaust survivor Edith Eva Eger. In it, Dr. Eger personally weaves viewers throughout her remarkable journey, and is joined by Alan Moskin, a 95-year-old Patton’s Army soldier who liberated Gunskirchen Lager, the camp Dr. Eger was in at the time. The film tells the story of how Dr. Eger’s bravery kept her alive through three concentration camps yet left her struggling for years with flashbacks and survivor’s guilt. Viewers will watch as Edith discovers that to heal, she needed to forgive the one person she had been unable to forgive: herself.

Viewers are urged to support The Holocaust Education Film Foundation by ordering before, during, or after the screening a copy of the DVD from Amazon.com at https://amzn.to/3eMhvBj.

About Dr. Edith Eva Eger

Born September 29, 1927, in Kosice, Slovakia, where she lived with her parents and two older sisters, Magda and Clara, Edith lived a typical Jewish life. The family eventually moved to Budapest, Hungary, where in 1944, Nazis put them on a cattle car to Auschwitz as part of the Final Solution. Clara, a violin prodigy who “didn't look Jewish,” was hidden by her music professor and continued to perform during the war.

Upon arrival at Auschwitz, Edith's parents were immediately murdered. She spent her entire incarceration with her older sister, Magda. Most chillingly, Edith had at least two interactions with “the Angel of Death,” Dr. Josef Mengele. The first was when he tore her away from her mother with the promise that “your mother is going to take a shower and you’ll see her soon.” The second was when he discovered she was a ballerina and gymnast and demanded she dance for him. Edith shared the bread she received for dancing with fellow prisoners who remembered this act of kindness, and it ultimately saved her life.

Edith was placed in full prisoner garb on top of a munitions train as a human shield to keep the British from bombing, and after a brief stint at Mauthausen, was sent on a forced death march to Gunskirchen Lager. Overall, there were 44,000 incarceration sites and ghettos, including 23 concentration camps; this film includes a living liberator who remembers every moment of his experience in that self-described "hell hole." The full breadth of this horror is described in vivid detail through the eyes of Alan Moskin, a 94-year-old Patton¹s Army soldier who liberated Gunskirchen Lager. Edith was pulled from a pile of corpses when she was liberated in1945.

After the war, Edith's nightmare did not yet end. From the Communist overthrow of Hungary to her husband's imprisonment and her smuggling him out, to their arrival penniless in the United States, Edith’s remarkable determination held fast. She refused to be a victim and never gave up. Today, at the age of 93, Edith is a published best-selling author and internationally acclaimed psychologist.

From the images of Whites and Blacks marching together for Civil Rights, to the world that watched George Floyd take his last breath, Odyssey's use of technology in a way that engages and educates those on our justice system, while also raising awareness on issues of social justice, is pivotal for our universal community,” says actress LisaRaye.

— Friedemann Tischmeyer

SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA, US, October 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — MAAT Incorporated, a manufacturer of exceptional performance professional audio solutions, today announced the release of a new cross platform plug–in for the redithering of digital audio. Their latest product incorporates MAAT’s reference class LINpro dithering engine.

LINone delivers uncompromising quality and exacting fidelity with a simple user interface at an affordable price point.

Although dithering is often thought of as an optional process that can be ignored without consequences, mastering engineers know that redithering prior to delivery is their last opportunity to define the quality of their product. Easy to use LINone offers Triangular PDF (Probability Density Function) dither with 1st Order Noise Shaping, which is suitable for all delivery conditions.

During development, MAAT identified several DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations) that could not apply proper dither by themselves. The company’s CEO, Friedemann Tischmeyer, realized that accurate dither is a fundamental function that should be available to all. “Utilizing LINone, all levels of audio practitioner can now produce reference–quality content. Our inexpensive plug–in shares the same precision dithering engine used by our premier LINpro, making for easy and accurate delivery of all your assets.”

LINone is available in all modern plug–in formats, including cross–platform AAX, VST 2 and 64 bit VST 3 as well as a Universal Binary 2 AU for macOS. Perpetual licenses for LIN are available now, exclusively from MAAT. Additional information, including user manuals, are accessible anytime at www.maat.digital/lin on the web.

Cheat Codes release Highly anticipated album Hellraisers Part 2

This is the second album of their three part series with Hellraiser part 3 due out later this year

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, October 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — CHEAT CODES RELEASE “HELLRAISER PART 2”
THIS IS THE SECOND ALBUM OF THEIR 3 PART SERIES WITH “HELLRAISER PART 3 DUE LATER THIS YEAR

CHEAT CODES THIRD SINGLE, HURRICANE FEATURING TYSON RITTER OUT NOW.

Multi-platinum hit-making trio Cheat Codes, popularly known for their smash single “No Promises'' (feat. Demi Lovato), are releasing their highly anticipated album Hellraisers, PT 2. Hurricane features Alt Pop Favorite Tyson Ritter of All American Rejects.

“HELLRAISER PART 2” is a perfect rock, and pop album with some of the most influential features on the records. The album includes songs with, Travis Barker, Tyson Ritter, Bring me the Horizon, All Time Low, All American Rejects, Blackbear and Trippie Redd.

The band says “Hellraisers Part 2 is here! Ever since we started Cheat Codes we’ve hated the idea of being kept in a box of one genre. We’ve always wanted to be able to experiment, push the envelope, and blur the lines between different types of music. With part two of the album, we want to try something new never done before. Some thing that brings us all the way back to where it all started for us as kids. POP PUNK. For us, there is nothing more nostalgic. We had such a blast making this music and it’s been absolutely insane being able to work with some of the artists/bands we grew up listening to.”

Cheat Codes released the first part of their debut album Hellraisers, Pt. 1 in May. The highly anticipated release featured tracks such as the lead single “Lean On Me (feat. Tinashe),” “Stay (feat. Bryce Vine),” “Do It All Over (feat. Marc E. Bassy),” and “Hate You + Love You (feat. AJ Mitchell).” The name of the album, “Hellraisers,” was the nickname given to the group by their late manager, Michael Theanne, who passed away over a year ago, describing their playful and adventurous lifestyle. The album itself has three parts – each part has a distinct sound influenced by each member. This first part is focused on Trevor’s pop-leaning sound, while the second part will be focused on KEVI’s hip-hop flavor, and the third part will be focused on Matthew’s dance-influenced sound. The album was followed by the official music video for “Lean On Me,” the Hellraisers, Pt 1 Remixes album featuring electronic dance music artists Morgan Page, Michael Calfan, and more, and the country-influenced “Never Love You Again” with Little Big Town and Bryn Christopher.

ABOUT CHEAT CODES:
Simultaneously trafficking in electronic, pop, hip-hop, and alternative at the same high speed, the Los Angeles trio Cheat Codes remains an inescapable force throughout popular culture. Their total stream tally eclipses a staggering 6 billion plays. Maintaining a prolific pace, they’ve steadily amassed a diverse discography, including the platinum Pop Radio Top 5 smash “No Promises” [feat. Demi Lovato], the gold-certified “Feels Great” [feat. Fetty Wap & CVBZ], and gold-selling breakout “SEX” with Kriss Kross Amsterdam. Speaking to their international impact, “Only You” [feat. Little Mix] soared to #1 on Pop Radio in the UK, while they received dozens of platinum certifications in 20 countries. Not to mention, Liam Payne, Kim Petras, Wiz Khalifa, and Sofía Reyes all jumped at the chance to collabo on rate, and they did remixes for Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith. Igniting clubs worldwide, their 2019 level 2 EP yielded the #1 Dance Radio hit “Who’s Got Your Love” [feat. Daniel Blume] in addition to “Ferrari” [feat. Afrojack] and “Be The One” [feat. Kaskade]. Cheat Codes made their acting debut with the Bella Thorne directed short film, music video for "No Service In The Hills" featuring Trippie Redd, blackbear and PRINCE$$ ROSIE. Acclaimed by Rolling Stone, Paper, Time, Billboard, and more, the musicians have shut down The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! with stunning and show-stopping performances.

Illusive by Kelly David: Organic Electronic Meditations in Ambient Music

Crafted using an astounding list of electronic instruments from Moog, Sequential, Nord and modular synthesizers, each piece moves fluidly from beat to beat, melody to melody, never staying in one place for long.

6-panel blue & white abstract package design with matching art booklet and CD.

Illusive by Kelly David: album design is an important part of the customer experience.

Denver-based synthesist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist Kelly David releases his second album of electronic music on the Spotted Peccary label. Out now!

'Illusive' refers to a quality of what you're seeing or hearing or where the direction you think the music is going may actually be headed somewhere else.”

— Kelly David

DENVER, CO , USA, October 15, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Illusive, Kelly David’s second release for Portland-based record label Spotted Peccary Music (SPM), expands the ethereal, sylvan sound of his previous album Meditation in Green. Like its predecessor, Illusive revels in natural beauty, blending wilderness samples with luminous synths and psychedelic textures. Illusive, however, dwells as much in internal landscapes as external ones. Reflective, introspective, yet filled with wonder, the album releases today in CD format and in 24-BIT AUDIOPHILE, CD QUALITY LOSSLESS, MP3 and streaming formats; various platforms available at https://orcd.co/illusive

Composed during the pandemic, these seven pieces explore the contrast between the calm quietude of David’s surroundings and the chaos of the outside world. “Illusive” means “producing illusion” or “not what it seems,” and makes an apt title for this album of hidden depths. Crafted from an astounding list of electronic instruments using Moog, Sequential, Nord and modular synthesizers, each piece moves fluidly from beat to beat, melody to melody, never staying in one place for long. And yet, Illusive imbues the listener with a sense of calm and stillness even as it remains in constant motion.

“Sentinel” pairs spritely synths with ethereal tones to conjure a sense of safety; the ever-shifting landscape beneath hints at a hidden anxiety, but the danger is always distant, never near. On “Top of the Trees,” sampled bird calls and skittering percussion evoke the avian clamor of the forest. A threatening drone rises to the forefront like a windstorm sweeping through the woods, before it fades into a warm texture and all is calm once again. Finale “Northcoast” opens with sounds of crashing waves; later, an ominous hum simmers under shimmering tones, capturing the might and majesty of the open sea before, in the album’s closing moments, all falls into the waves once again.

David finds opportunities for learning from his compositional processes, “I approach each studio session usually with an idea in mind of where I’m going next. It doesn’t always work out. Not every studio session produces something useful. The key is to return to the studio again, to keep searching, pushing, staying open for the accidents that led to something really useful.”

"Once I reached the point in recording the album where I recognized the quiet delicacy in the music, images of impressionist visual art came to mind: distinct and varied colors, often with the softness of water colors and then deeper, darker waters that flowed deep inside the music. I began with some predetermined compositional structure for each piece. Mostly, it was a set of harmonic materials, namely a reliance on the subset modes of the major scales. Sometimes I modulated between different harmonic modes in the same piece. The modes often impact the emotional quality of a track as some modes are inherently sad or create a feeling of longing. Illusive refers to a quality of what you're seeing or hearing or where the direction you think the music is going may actually be headed somewhere else. Perhaps this relates to the state of the world during the time of this recording: we weren't so sure of many things."

With Illusive, the listener finds a sonic sanctuary, appreciating both our natural and synthetic worlds. Illusive is a meditation on the endurance of beauty through troubled times. As these seven pieces morph from melody to melody—traversing stark silences and warm crescendos, cavernous atmospheres and celestial chimes—change is constant, yet graceful.

Mastered by Howard Givens, Illusive is available for physical purchase in CD format and in 24-BIT AUDIOPHILE, CD QUALITY LOSSLESS, MP3 and streaming formats. The CD version of Illusive arrives in a factory sealed 6-panel gatefold package that includes vibrant artwork, liner notes, a 4-page booklet, and artful package design by Daniel Pipitone.

Critical acclaim for the artist's earlier SPM release, Meditation in Green, included Textura magazine writing "masterfully crafted and beautifully realized" while Star's End said "Kelly David produces passages of mystic bliss – where reverberant chords move like slow clouds on the horizon, and glowing tones flex and fade off into a buzz of jungle."

About Kelly David:
In high school, Kelly was heavily influenced by the music of Frank Zappa. Through Frank Zappa interviews in magazines and newspapers, Kelly learned about the music of Stockhausen, Varese and other 20th century masters who provided a first direction to Kelly in electronic music. After a move “out west” to Denver in 1997, Kelly met Tucson’s ambient and electronic music master, Steve Roach. They subsequently developed a personal and professional kinship. Steve mixed and produced Kelly’s first album, Broken Voyage in 2002 and mastered and added spatial enhancements to Kelly’s 2006 release, Angkor. In 2014, Kelly collaborated with Steve on an album called The Long Night. Meditation in Green is Kelly’s first release for Spotted Peccary, and Illusive is the second.

Not every studio session produces something useful. The key is to return to the studio again, to keep searching, pushing, staying open for the accidents that led to something really useful.”

"Once I reached the point in recording the album where I recognized the quiet delicacy in the music, images of impressionist visual art came to mind: distinct and varied colors, often with the softness of water colors and then deeper, darker waters that flowed deep inside the music. I began with some predetermined compositional structure for each piece. Mostly, it was a set of harmonic materials, namely a reliance on the subset modes of the major scales. Sometimes I modulated between different harmonic modes in the same piece. The modes often impact the emotional quality of a track as some modes are inherently sad or create a feeling of longing. Illusive refers to a quality of what you're seeing or hearing or where the direction you think the music is going may actually be headed somewhere else. Perhaps this relates to the state of the world during the time of this recording: we weren't so sure of many things."

With Illusive, the listener finds a sonic sanctuary, appreciating both our natural and synthetic worlds. Illusive is a meditation on the endurance of beauty through troubled times. As these seven pieces morph from melody to melody—traversing stark silences and warm crescendos, cavernous atmospheres and celestial chimes—change is constant, yet graceful.

Mastered by Howard Givens, Illusive is available for physical purchase in CD format and in 24-BIT AUDIOPHILE, CD QUALITY LOSSLESS, MP3 and streaming formats. The CD version of Illusive arrives in a factory sealed 6-panel gatefold package that includes vibrant artwork, liner notes, a 4-page booklet, and artful package design by Daniel Pipitone.

Critical acclaim for the artist's earlier SPM release, Meditation in Green, included Textura magazine writing "masterfully crafted and beautifully realized" while Star's End said "Kelly David produces passages of mystic bliss – where reverberant chords move like slow clouds on the horizon, and glowing tones flex and fade off into a buzz of jungle."

About Kelly David:
In high school, Kelly was heavily influenced by the music of Frank Zappa. Through Frank Zappa interviews in magazines and newspapers, Kelly learned about the music of Stockhausen, Varese and other 20th century masters who provided a first direction to Kelly in electronic music. After a move “out west” to Denver in 1997, Kelly met Tucson’s ambient and electronic music master, Steve Roach. They subsequently developed a personal and professional kinship. Steve mixed and produced Kelly’s first album, Broken Voyage in 2002 and mastered and added spatial enhancements to Kelly’s 2006 release, Angkor. In 2014, Kelly collaborated with Steve on an album called The Long Night. Meditation in Green is Kelly’s first release for Spotted Peccary, and Illusive is the second.
