The Tatiana Show Ep. 181 Ryan and Scott of Music for Liberty

Update: 2019-03-19


Scott and Ryan have been composing music together in the spirit of liberty since 2015. I was lucky enough to meet them along the way in my journey, and have a great respect for artists that realize the need for a touch of freedom in the message. It can be so powerful, as evidenced by Scott and Ryan's work. We get into their journey, some of the challenges along the way for their political views, and some stories of success. There have been a few notable releases we recommend, so please look in the bio below.

About the Guests:

Scott McRae and Ryan Rapsys founded Music for Liberty in 2015 in order to elevate the quality of music used in media focused around ideas of human liberty. Since then, they have scored the feature film Little Pink House (about the Kelo vs. New London Supreme Court Case) for which they received the award for Best Score at the 2017 Anthem Film Festival, the documentary Can We Take a Joke? (which explores the intersection of comedy, free speech and outrage culture), and have provided music for media from organizations such as the Institute for Justice, Smock Media, The Atlas Society, Taliesin Nexus, Moving Picture Institute and others. Their recent endeavor, the Composing Freedom Initiative, has two aims: 1) educate liberty-minded filmmakers about how to more effectively use music in their projects and 2) raise funds to augment the music budgets of media that celebrates human freedom and individualism.

Individually, they have each worked extensively in the entertainment industry. Scott has contributed his musical skills and knowledge to over 100 films and television shows, including Crazy Rich Asians, Fences, the Fast and Furious franchise, The Pursuit of Happyness, Rush Hour 3, the Final Destination franchise, and Cold Mountain. He founded and runs Janen Music, which provides quality music preparation services and rents music to orchestras for live

performance. He co-produced two Christmas albums, and his score for The Box was nominated for Best Score at the Madrid Film Festival in 2014.

For nearly two decades, Ryan has composed music for numerous feature films, short films, documentaries, theatrical productions and commercial projects. His score for the short film Stay won Best Original Score at the Los Angeles Cinema Festival of Hollywood in 2016. He's also released electronic music under the aliases Transistorface, Microquasar and Pineriver. He's composed classical music, with concert performances by small ensembles up to full orchestra. His production music has been used in hundreds of television shows, including Dateline NBC and The Today Show. He owns and operates Total Music Metadata, a music service business which catalogs, edits and optimizes music tracks for licensing for music libraries and organizations, with clients including top trailer music houses as well as the in-house music library for Discovery Communications. He's also served as a music supervisor and music editor for numerous projects.

Yaniv Tal: The Graph '"A Marketplace for Web3 Data Indexes Based on GraphQL
At the core of the Web 2.0 stack lies the REST API. It's the fiber which allows frontend applications to communicate with their backend counterparts, as well as the services on which they depend. But the API model is highly constrained and inflexible. The API is divorced from the data model, which creates a number of restrictions and inefficiencies. Most blockchain clients, including Geth, Parity and Bitcoin Core, use a JSON-RPC model which suffers from similar issues. Several Ethereum DApps maintain high-availability, centralized data indexes which sit between the client and the blockchain. Thought user experience is greatly improved, the practice means most of the ecosystem relies on centralized infrastructure. We're joined by Yaniv Tal, Project Lead at The Graph. The project aims to create a scalable marketplace of robust and high-availability blockchain data indexes. Relying on the modern GraphQL data query language initially developed by Facebook, The Graph allows developers to make complex queries to a robust and high-availability data infrastructure. Launched as a hosted service earlier this year, The Graph plans to move to a decentralized model in the future.Topics discussed in this episode:The vision of The Graph and why the team chose to work on this problemThe REST API client-server model in the Web 2.0 paradigmThe state of the Ethereum ecosystem and the challenges relating to data availabilityHow DApps work behind the scenes and their backend infrastructureGraphQL as the evolution of the API modelHow The Graph addresses the issue of data querying and availabilityTheir hosted services and plans to move to a hybrid modelHow The Graph addresses privacy and scalabilityThe incentive mechanisms and economics related to data integrityEarly applications and the project's near-term roadmapLinks mentioned in this episode: The Graph - A Query Protocol for BlockchainsThe Graph on MediumBrowse and Explore SubgraphsGraph DocsGraphQL Will Power the Decentralized WebThe Graph's Research and Specifications are Now Open SourceOur Investment In The Graph - Multicoin CapitalGraphQLYaniv Tal on TwitterSponsors: Cosmos: Join the most interoperable ecosystem of connected blockchainsSupport the show, consider donating: BTC: 1CD83r9EzFinDNWwmRW4ssgCbhsM5bxXwg ( 1M4dvWxjL5N9WniNtatKtxW7RcGV73TQTd ( 0x8cdb49ca5103Ce06717C4daBBFD4857183f50935 ( episode is hosted by Brian Fabian Crain & Sebastien Couture.

#282 Simon de la Rouviere: Bonding Curves, Curation Markets, Token Curated Registries... and Art
Human beings have a penchant for creating lists. We make lists for things like the top music artists at any given time, the best restaurants in the world, companies which people can trust, and the most wanted criminals. Lists take many forms. They can be maintained by a single authority, or curated by a crowd. But almost always, they remain in the custody of a central party. Token Curated Lists propose a model by which a) the content of lists are decentralized, and b) contributors are incentivized to curate their content according to social consensus. We're joined by Simon de la Rouviere, an independent researcher and blogger. Previously, Simon was one of the first employees at ConsenSys and founded Ujo Music. He also contributed to the ERC20 token specification and has written about blockchain and token economics since 2014. In recent months, Simon's research has focused on Token Curated Registries (or TCRs), and the economics of curation markets.Topics discussed in this episode:Simon's background and interest in blockchain, music, and economicsBonding curves as a mechanism for continuous token issuanceCuration markets and how they relate to bonding curvesPractical applications of curation marketsThe connection between curation markets and cultural memesToken Curated Registries and their applicationsThe role of TCRs as a crypto economic primitiveThe economics and game theory of TCRsSimon's recent project 'œThis Artwork is Always for Sale'Links mentioned in this episode: Simon de la Rouviere '" MediumBancor's Smart Tokens vs Token Bonding Curves '" MediumIntroducing Curation Markets: Trade Popularity of Memes & Information (with code)!

What Bitcoin Did #94 The Economics of Lightning with Nic Carter & Pierre Rochard
'œTo me, it is pretty staggering actually that Bitcoin has never had a real confirmed double spend.''" Nic CarterInterview location: SkypeInterview date: Tuesday 9th April, 2019Company: Nic - Castle Island Ventures | Pierre - Independent Bitcoin AdvisorRole: Nic - Partner | Pierre - FounderThe Lightning Network is a second layer scaling solution for Bitcoin, designed to maintain the security of the protocol while offering a new way for users to send and receive Bitcoin, ideally faster and cheaper.The Lightning technology is new and essentially in a live beta where users are encouraged to test it out, but with small and limited amounts of Bitcoin, still, the capacity of the network is growing fast. As more users come onto the network and the capacity increases, users are finding areas which can be improved, and developers are working to implement upgrades.Lightning is not the same as the base chain; the experience has differences which can take a little getting used to. At the moment, users have to create channels and be aware of the capacity of these channels. Further, the lightning network is intrinsically linked to the base chain, opening a channel creates a transaction, and therefore a fee and these fees may impact how people use Lightning.The complexity is a reflection of how new Lightning is but it is improving all the time. In this interview I talk about the economics of the network with Nic Carter and Pierre Rochard, We discuss the fee market, the future of the block subsidy and whether base chain fees will lead to a two-tier Bitcoin.This episode is also on:iTunesYoutubeStitcherGoogle PlayTuneInListen to more What Bitcoin Did episodes
