Help Needed: Loronix Dedicated Server – Year 2!

Publicado em: Saturday, July 11, 2009 by zecalouro

Loronix dedicated server contract is about to expire and once again I would like to engage the community to another year. This is a very important and critical milestone to Loronix. A little bit of history in case you have missed this story.

About a year ago, Loronix was surprised by an attack, leaving entire archive off-line. It was a very difficult time, solved through the mobilization of our community to purchase a dedicated server that enabled Loronix to be most stable of all music blogs.

This aid came through a raising funds campaign, guaranteeing this server for a period of one year. This server transformed Loronix significantly and today I the website cannot survive alone.

A year has gone and now it is necessary to renew our contract. And as I said, your help will be essential. Our objective is a little bit easier; we need to achieve a US$ 686.38 goal for a whole new year. My PayPal US$ 21,62 current balance is already included.

Our deadline is on July 27 and contributions will be collected using this widget below, which will be always available in our side bar until we reach our goal.

Thanks in advance for another whole new year.

Kind regards,

zeca





As Vedetes sai da lista “Com defeito”

AsVedetes - As Vedetes

 

Este disco estava desde 2011 na nossa lista “com defeito“, pois tinha duas faixas defeituosas. Agora, graças ao Paulo, um colaborador do blog Um que Tenha, uma nova versão foi conseguida e pode ser baixada a partir da postagem original.

Já está funcionando o novo blog do Milan, só com postagens novas. O endereço é http://parallelrealitiesmusic.blogspot.com/ .  As postagens antigas continuam em http://parallelrealitiesstudio.wordpress.com/ .

Outra péssima notícia.

Mais um excelente blog, agora o Abracadabra, foi fechado pelo Google. Segundo a Bruxa do Vinil, os motivos alegados foram “denúncia e incompatibilidade com os termos de adesão”.  Quando isto vai parar? Quando todos os blogs musicais de qualidade estiverem fechados?

Felizmente a nossa amiga Bruxa é uma guerreira, e me disse que deve refazer o blog em outro endereço. Vamos ficar torcendo para que isto aconteça em breve.





Parallel Realities

25 07 2013

realities

Todos os amantes da boa música brasileira devem ter se surpreendido ao tentar acessar hoje o blog Parallel Realities.  A mensagem é de que o blog foi removido pelo Google.

O Milan, proprietário do blog, me disse que, além do Parallel Realities, também foram removidos os dois outros blogs que ele tinha, dedicados à cantora Waleska. Até a sua conta no Google foi apagada.

Felizmente, o Milan mantém um espelho do blog no WordPress, onde os links para os discos continuam funcionando: http://parallelrealitiesstudio.wordpress.com/
Ele ainda está tentando entender o que aconteceu e por que o blog foi removido. Não recebeu nenhuma comunicação do Google indicando o motivo e está tentando um contato com a empresa.
É difícil de entender as razões da remoção, uma vez que o blog publica discos muito antigos, dos quais quase ninguém sabia da existência, prestando um serviço fundamental de resgate para a nossa cultura.  Os blogs da Waleska, que também foram removidos, são, inclusive, publicados com o apoio da Waleska e da Lilian Marques, sua produtora.
Enfim, estamos todos torcendo para que a situação se resolva e que o Parallel Realities continue nos brindando com a música que não conseguiriamos acesso se não fosse por trabalhos como o do Milan.

Anúncio | Enciclopédia Permanente da Música Instrumental Brasileira

17 06 2013

Link original: Anúncio | Enciclopédia Permanente da Música Instrumental Brasileira
Publicado em: Sunday, December 14, 2008 by zecalouro

 MusicosDoBrasil

Amigos, depois de mais de um ano de intenso e prazeroso trabalho, com muita alegria anunciamos à comunidade do Loronix que o site da Enciclopédia Eletrônica e Permanente de Música Instrumental Brasileira já está disponível, aqui.

Recebemos mais de 400 questionários de músicos em atividade e a partir dos quais elaboramos cada verbete. Pesquisamos e escrevemos, também, cerca de 150 verbetes sobre músicos que já morreram, como Pixinguinha, Jacob do Bandolim e muitos outros, inclusive Márcio Montarroyos e J. T. Meirelles, falecidos recentemente.

A Enciclopédia apresenta, além dos verbetes, dissertações universitárias que nos foram gentilmente cedidas por seus autores, e ensaios escritos especialmente para o projeto sobre os mais diversos aspectos da música instrumental brasileira.

Elaboramos, ainda, um painel de época retratando como era o mundo e a vida das pessoas em cada década do século XX, com a finalidade de permitir que se entenda um pouco melhor o ambiente histórico, social, tecnológico e político em que cada um dos músicos nasceu e produziu a sua obra.

Sobre o Site:

Músico em Destaque
Cada vez que a página inicial é mostrada, a Enciclopédia seleciona um músico diferente entre todos os verbetes para os quais exista uma fotografia.

Clicando sobre a foto do músico, você será levado ao verbete correspondente.

Rádio Músicos do Brasil
A Rádio Músicos do Brasil executa apenas fonogramas cedidos pelos próprios artistas. Cada “programa” da Rádio tem 15 músicas, e a programação é modificada de hora em hora.

Caixa de Pesquisa
Para localizar um músico, basta que você digite o nome, ou uma parte do nome desejado, e aperte a tecla Enter ou clique sobre a seta.

Menu Principal
O menu principal fica sempre acessível e, através dele, você tem as seguintes opções:

Músicos: Aqui é possível percorrer alfabeticamente todos os verbetes disponíveis, conhecendo assim os nomes dos músicos incluidos na Enciclopédia; ao encontrar o músico que procura, basta que você clique sobre seu nome para ler o verbete completo.

Também aqui são informados os dez últimos verbetes incluídos ou alterados, em ordem decrescente; ou seja, no alto da lista estão os verbetes mais recentes.

A coluna “Em Elaboração” informa os verbetes que estão aguardando a resposta dos músicos aos questionários, para que futuramente estejam disponíveis na Enciclopédia.

Cada verbete pode ter até oito seções, conforme as atividades desenvolvidas pelo músico. Clicando-se na aba correspondente, a seção desejada é aberta para leitura.

Áudio e Foto é uma seção especial do verbete, na qual você poderá ver mais fotos do músico, e ouvir músicas na íntegra. O conteúdo dessa seção, no caso dos músicos vivos, foi cedido pelos próprios artistas. No caso de músicos falecidos, só serão incluídas músicas cedidas pelos titulares dos direitos, e as fotos foram obtidas na Internet.

Ensaios: Solicitamos a 40 músicos e pesquisadores que escrevessem ensaios especialmente para a Enciclopédia.

Esses 40 ensaios estão disponíveis aqui, podendo ser lidos, baixados ou impressos. Qualquer outra utilização depende da autorização expressa dos autores.

Dissertações e Teses: Você encontra aqui um conjunto de dissertações e teses acadêmicas, devidamente autorizada por seus titulares. São trabalhos produzidos como parte da obtenção de grau de mestre ou doutor, sempre tratando de temas ligados à música instrumental brasileira.

Eles podem ser lidos, baixados e impressos. Qualquer outra utilização depende da autorização expressa dos autores. Lembramos que são documentos extensos, que podem chegar a 400 páginas. Em alguns casos, contêm arquivos de imagem e som.

Painéis de Época: Os Painéis de Época foram redigidos especificamente para a Enciclopédia, e procuram retratar como era o mundo e como era a vida das pessoas em cada década do século XX.

A finalidade dos Painéis de Época é permitir que você entenda um pouco melhor o ambiente histórico, social, tecnológico e político em que cada um dos músicos nasceu e produziu a sua obra.

Sobre a Enciclopédia: Esta seção traz informações mais detalhadas sobre o projeto e a equipe que desenvolveu Músicos do Brasil: Uma Enciclopédia.

Quem Somos?

Maria Luiza Kfouri (marialuiza@musicosdobrasil.com.br), pesquisadora da música brasileira, mantém desde 2005 o site “Discos do Brasil – Uma Discografia Brasileira” (www.discosdobrasil.com.br) – banco de dados com a catalogação de discos (5 mil e 770 títulos), instrumentistas (15 mil e 400), instrumentos (2 mil e 832), arranjadores (2 mil e 426), compositores (10 mil), músicas (42 mil e 800), e datas de gravações e de nascimento e morte dos intérpretes principais.

Concepção do Projeto: Koan Idéias & Projetos Empresariais e Culturais (fernando@musicosdobrasil.com.br)

Redatores: Maria Luiza Kfouri, Ana Luiza Amaral, Célia Cassis e João Abdalla (músicos vivos) e Fernando Barcellos Ximenes (músicos falecidos)

300DiscosImportantes

Hello! I would like to invite everybody to watch this video with Charles Gavin interview to GloboNews Estudio i show, hosted by Maria Beltrão. It is a truly amazing 15 minutes video with Charles speaking about his new Bossa Nova book, 300 Discos Importantes da Música Brasileira.

The book has 434 pages and has the size of a LP. Two CDs are included, Moreira da Silva – O Último Malandro (1959) and Elza Soares – Elza Soares | Baterista: Wilson das Neves (1968). 300 Discos Importantes da Música Brasileira is produced by Charles Gavin and written by Tarik de Souza, Carlos Calado and Arthur Dapieve. Caetano Rodrigues, Valdir Siqueira and zecalouro (sic!) are collaborators. The book is still available for purchase at Livraria Cultura with part of the revenue donated to Instituto Sou da Paz. Follow my advice and run for it before it runs out of print.

I would like to thank Charles Gavin for his tireless work of rescuing the forgotten and amazing Brazilian music from the past. I’m also very proud when Charles speaks wonders about Loronix on every interview he makes, such like this one where he talks about Loronix and a great story of an album he was looking for and I had the chance to please him with a copy. Thanks Charles, you are Loronix ambassador.

Don’t miss the video and the book at Livraria Cultura, following this link, here.

Hope uEnjoy!





The New and Improved Find It!

Link original: The New and Improved Find It!
Publicado em: Friday, November 07, 2008 by zecalouro

Hello! I’m very happy to announce a major upgrade on Find It, Loronix albums search application. You will not believe on what you will see there. Find It is now multi language and brings three different search sections.

You can use this tab to search only for artists

This one to search for albums

and the new Visual Find It to search on everything with cover artwork results.

Here is a brief explanation of the new system.

This is the opening screen with the three choices described before, pick up one to gain access to the search engine.

The Artist search is very simple, featuring only a list of artists available at our discography. Attention to the first column, it is the place you will need to click to see the albums available for a given artist or group. For a quick examination, you can use the preview, receiving a sample of the albums available for an artist (up to ten albums).

The Albums search is very similar to the old version. You can search for an artist name, an album name, a release year, etc. The word Loronix is the link you should click to reach the album of your choice.

The Visual Find It the great new feature. You can search for everything to receive an output with Loronix albums covers, this is really great. The word Loronix is also a link to reach an album at Loronix.

Additionally, Find It is now speaking several languages and you can easily switch to your language using this selector.

You can also adjust the amount of results received using this control to select the number of records per page.

I hope Find It makes Loronix experience much easier to everybody. Please inform bugs and translation mistakes using the comment section of this post.

Click at the picture below or follow this new link to the new Find It!

And thanks for your continuous support to Loronix.

Kind Regards, zeca

Como todos sabem, o Find It! não funciona mais. Também não consegui as imagens que mostravam seu funcionamento.

Hello friends, good evening! Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated. Several things happened in the last 10 days, good things and bad things. And the bad things were really bad, so bad that I would not recommend even to my worst enemy. If I have any!

Being straightforward, I would like to give my apologies for being away from Loronix for such a long time without keeping you informed on what was happening. I’ve been sick since Monday, and it was a serious thing, actually, a combination of serious things. I did not have energy to leave my bed for a single hour to write a message and let people informed.

But, I will be back and it will be very soon. I cannot wait for the next release, it should be tomorrow. Stay tuned! Meanwhile, I think we have very solid knowledge and entertainment available at Loronix archives. Anyway, Loronix is strong and I’m very happy that you have been taking care of the place while I was out. Thanks for being part of Loronix.

Respect,

zeca

I spent with Loronix certified admins last six hours on our new dedicated server initial setup and application and database transfers to the new system. This is really a major step and I could not make it without your help. The initial setup is finished, and Loronix should load faster as soon as DNS information propagates across the Internet. This process takes 24 hours to complete.

I’m making available below the invoice with SERVER4YOU dedicated server provider.

I’m going back to pick a new release to close the day, a very important day at Loronix.

Thank you very much.

Dear Friends,

Just a quick fix on our funding campaign. The Economy L US$ 708 target was already accomplished with less than 24 hours. THANK YOU!!! However, Economy L is SOLD OUT. This is the fix. Our target was just changed to Premium L, US$ 828, which is only a US$ 120 increase.

Sorry about this change and thanks once again for this amazing funding campaign for the new Loronix Dedicated Server.

Dedicated Server Campaign – Help Needed!

Link original: Dedicated Server Campaign – Help Needed!
Publicado em: Sunday, July 27, 2008 by zecalouro

Hello, good evening! I’m asking for help to address a serious issue, which is the poor performance and availability of Loronix applications. Nice features, such as Loronix Preview Center, Find It and Rapidshare links are not working as they use to be in the past. The cause is a lack on computer resources. I’ve been spending a LOT of time managing this situation with fine tunings and several moves and configuration changes, and this is making my available time to transfer music and making posts almost disappear.

This is a serious situation. With the resources available I cannot launch new features and the existent ones will perform badly and even will get down as our community grows. Loronix runs on shared hosting space, with our applications sharing computer power with several other users. Sometimes they even put our applications off-line, since I’m considered a resource eater.

The viable and long term solution is contract a dedicated server, instead of sharing resources with others. However, this is a very expensive move and I cannot afford without your help. I made a selection among several dedicated hosting providers and I found what I consider the best price against performance ratio, which is this dedicated server at SERVER4YOU, one of best Dedicated Hosting providers worldwide.

I need to collect US$ 708.00 until August 15th to order a whole year with this dedicated server, which is SERVER4YOU ECONOMY L server. Tech specifications and price are available at this link.

A donation campaign was created with PayPal and we can watch status and make donations with Chipin Gadget, already available at Loronix sidebar and below. If you cannot use PayPal, you can also collaborate, send me an email and I give you alternatives.

Thanks in advance for your support. I’m confident this will be a successful initiative and Loronix will be really a better place to be with this new and required resource.

Thank you!

Hello, good evening! I believe that everybody is happy with the end of Loronix links reactivation work. At least I am happy and soon we can put the website back in the old pace. I was planning a post describing the work I did in the last month with some really interest facts and numbers, but I am very tired. I will take care of this information in the next weekend, it is important that everybody reads this information to understand what is behind Loronix.

Meanwhile, this tired parrot asks for help. I could not manage an acceptable transfer of this fantastic album that I was desperately looking for since Loronix beginning. By the way, this is Trio Surdina last album recorded by the original formation, which includes Fafa Lemos, Garoto and Chiquinho do Acordeon.

Let’s talk about the help I need. I’m making available two FLAC files full of scratches that you don’t need to download if you want to hear this album. These files were not treated and the first to send me back these FLAC files without the clicks clacks hisses etc. wins a Rapidshare 1-month Premium account. Period. You have 5 days available to make it. Good luck!

This is fantastic music that needs treatment; do not take it please if you are not willing to clean it. All here as SideA and SideB.

Thanks!

Não sei qual era o disco do Trio Surdina que estava sendo limpado. Os dois links acima não funcionam mais. Talvez fosse este, publicado no Abracadabra, que me parece ser o único da formação original do trio que não foi publicado no Loronix.

I spent much of the last forty-eight hours thinking about on this post and this text, perhaps one of the most planned posts ever at Loronix. Different approaches were developed, but now I think it is better to forget all plans and write everything from scratch, instinctively on a single breath. I’m pleased to introduce to our community Jorge Mello, musician, composer, music researcher, teacher, book writer and a major reference of the works of Anibal Augusto Sardinha, also known as Garoto.

It is very easy to get along with Jorge Mello’s writing about Garoto and other Brazilian music subjects at the Internet. Sovaco de Cobra published a series of posts called O Cancioneiro de Garoto, with full Jorge Mello’s support. You can also reach Daniella Thompson’s Musica Brasiliensis website with several Jorge Mello’s contributions, such as this amazing writing about Trio Surdina.

At Loronix, I’m making a video with excerpts of ESPN Brasil Pontape Inicial show dedicated to Bossa Nova with the participation of Jorge Mello. It is a nice video, with ESPN friends talking a little bit about Loronix, thanks to Wilson Libutti for referencing Loronix to ESPN Pontape Inicial friends.

Well, thanks a lot Jorge. I’m sure your great sharing spirit will make a lot of difference to Loronix in the forthcoming days, actually forthcoming months. Maybe years?

Let’s watch the video, you can click on individual parts or watch the whole thing from the first one.

Publicado em: Sunday, March 30, 2008 by zecalouro

zecatypesHello, good evening! This is a very important communication to all of Loronix´s friends;

Last Thursday, all Loronix links were eliminated. It is not unusual for one or two links being occasionally removed because someone feels his / her rights have been infringed. We accept and respect that.

But the extent of the latest action makes me think of a purposeful attack, a denial of service. Based on previous experiences — fortunately, none of such depth and consequences — Loronix has always emerged strengthened and improved, with the support of our community.

The links will be gradually replaced, beginning from the newest ones, and proceeding until the oldest of them is back in order.

The replacement effort has just begun and everybody is invited to engage. Procedures are necessary to keep work organized; new features will be soon announced, along with instructions to allow anyone who feels like collaborating to participate in our effort.

My apologies for this inconvenience; you all can rest assure that lessons will be learned and we will make Loronix an even better community.

Cheers,

zeca

Hello, good evening! I had a very good and productive morning, afternoon and evening and a great Saturday as a whole working really hard with our engineers to make the final adjustments a new and really improved search service, powered by Google Inc., which is Loronix Community Search. I will tell you how it works.

LORONIX COMMUNITY SEARCH

Instead of search Google or search only Loronix using the old fashioned way, Loronix Community Search provides a customized search within all websites listed on our sidebar link section, now organized by categories, as follows:

Discographies: including friends who serve discography information of Brazilian music.

Musicians Websites: a list of musicians websites tuned with our community, such as Jovino Santos Neto, Ed Motta, Joe Carter (my master), Ricardo Sa Reston, Paulo Bitencourt and the tribute sites of Maria Lucia Godoy and Heitor Villa-Lobos. If you are a musician, feel free to send me an e-mail to engage this section.

zecalouro’s picks!: this section explains by itself, featuring websites of Loronix great friends, some of them not associated with Brazilian music, but really worth to visit.

Aggregators: the great friends who keep listings and directories of music websites, we have here Totally Fuzzy and Mammoth MP3 Blog List, the most complete music blog directory at the blogsphere.

Music Blogs: Loronix counterparts, websites that serves out of print music, Brazilian or not, but always with quality standards. You should keep an eye on them.

Great! Let’s see Loronix Community Search in action. It is very easy; all you need to do is type a search term in the search box bellow and wait for the results. Loronix Community Search will return your search results taking in consideration only the websites included on our 5 categories, such like the picture bellow, when the search expression “Jobim” was used.

Here is the great trick; it is possible to narrow results using the links with our category names on top of the search results. If you search Jobim and click on Discographies, the result set will retrieve only occurrences within the websites listed at Discographies category.
results

Now a real example, if you look for an album that is not available at Loronix, you can use Loronix Community Search and then narrow your results using the Music Blogs category to search all the other blogs with a single click.

I hope Loronix Community Search be comes a very useful tool to our community.

TRANSLATION SERVICES

Before you leave, I just want to say we stated using this afternoon an automated translation service powered by Google, which is the best translation solution available to our needs. Now we can translate Loronix from English to other nine languages, they are: Portuguese, German, Chinese, Italian, Russian, Japanese, Spanish, French and Korean. Just reach the side bar to find a set of flags to choose your desired language.

I think I spoke a lot tonight. Thanks once again for your time and continuous support to Loronix.

Cheers, zeca

As novas opções de pagamento com boleto bancário e transferência eletrônica com os bancos Bradesco, Banco do Brasil, Itaú e Unibanco são solicitações antigas, somente disponíveis após criteriosa análise de um parceiro de negócios capaz de atender todos os requerimentos de nossa comunidade.

Esse parceiro é o PagSeguro do Universo On-Line ou simplesmente UOL, um dos maiores provedores de acesso e conteúdo da internet Brasileira.

É fácil fazer a sua doação, basta acessar o ícone abaixo, também disponível no menu direito, logo abaixo do Loronix Preview Center. Estou disponível para esclarecimentos adicionais através do e-mail zecalouro@gmail.com e agradeço antecipadamente a sua doação.

Um Grande Abraço,

resultstableHello, good evening! I’m surprised that our poll to select today’s Carnaval post did not deliver a winner after 24 hours running. Thanks for the 57 friends that so far engaged the process, but I think we will need an additional day. Bafo da Onca and Jamelao are tied up, both with 17 votes, while Carmem Miranda and Bando da Lua are coming closer with 14 votes and Odeon compilation is the last one with 9 votes.

I hope we have a winner tomorrow night, meanwhile, get the chance and VOTE. The choices are:

Bafo da Onça – O Grande Samba do Bafo da Onca (1965), the legendary Bloco Carnavalesco with a whole album released by Mocambo.
Sempre e Carnaval (1964), featuring several artists performing Marchinhas
Carmem Miranda & Bando da Lua – Ao Vivo (1975), featuring remastered live recordings of Carmem Miranda in the 50’s
Jamelao – Jamelao (1980), the legendary Samba interpreter from Mangueira

Let’s engage this poll, it will be really fun to see preferences on each country using the great poll server provided by the folks of Ask 500 People. Make your choice at the link bellow.

Let’s VOTE here!

Hope uEnjoy!
