Que Triste by Warner Music Latina via 360 Magazine

“QUE TRISTE” by PISO 21 & CARÍN LEÓN

Piso 21 releases new single ”QUE TRISTE” with Carín León. The Colombian supergroup gears up to perform at the 2022 Latin Billboard Awards on September 29

“QUE TRISTE” Available HERE

One of the Latin music industry’s most prolific and versatile groups, Piso 21, unites with regional Mexican singer and songwriter, Carín León, for the release of their latest song, “Que Triste”. The song and its official music video are available to stream on all digital platforms today.

Intentionally crafted to create the perfect fusion between two very different worlds of music, this newest hit pushes past creative barriers as Piso 21 makes a meticulous decision to produce something that further solidifies their versatility as artists. A play of references, the meaning of “Que Triste” is evident in its ties to its melancholic and wistful melodies over a slower tempo. Molded perfectly to highlight the essence of all of the artists, Piso 21’s dynamic and multifaceted vocals intertwine seamlessly with Carín León’s rhythmic and signature vocalization as they weave a story of the sadness that comes with not being valued by their female protagonists as she walks out of their lives.

In the video, directed by Juan Felipe Zuleta, we find ourselves on an intimate journey as the main protagonist, Manu Fajardo, embodies the raw and heartfelt emotions brought forth by “Que Triste” through an emotional and isolated performance. The video sees Piso 21 and Carín León perform their verses throughout a series of snippets, effortlessly capturing the essence and story behind the song.

The debut of “Que Triste” comes at an exciting time for Piso 21 as they get ready to take the stage at the 2022 Latin Billboard Awards. The supergroup was also nominated at this year’s Latin Billboard Awards under the “Latin Rhythm Artist of the Year, Duo or Group” category. The ceremony will be broadcast live from the Watsco Center in Miami, FL on Thursday, September 29 at 7pm EST on Telemundo.

“Que Triste” follows in the footsteps of their current hit, “Los Cachos,” alongside Manuel Turizo. “Los Cachos” sees Piso 21 and Turizo join forces again for the first time since their 2018 classic, “Dejala Que Vuelva,” which remains a career-defining hit single for both artists. To date, “Los Cachos” has garnered over 60 million combined streams and over 24 million views on YouTube.

Piso 21 has continuously delivered hit after hit this year – after the release of their multi-platinum 2021 album, El Amor En Los Tiempos Del Perreo, they have released a steady stream of singles and features with Blessd, Ovy On The Drums, Santa Fe Klan, Dimelo Flow, Boza, Mau y Ricky, Prince Royce, Gerardo Ortiz, Khea, amongst others. Currently, Piso 21 is on the road touring internationally through LATAM and beyond as they gear up for the highly anticipated release of their album, “777.”

Combat Unproductive Meetings w/ Enhanced Scheduling 

Typical tips on meeting productivity include sharing the agenda beforehand, starting your meeting on time, keeping the conversation going, and asking questions. 

Although those are great tips that will make any meeting more productive, it’s easy to forget the one thing that can make or break meeting productivity: the scheduling. 

If scheduling a meeting sounds like a horror film title, it’s because it is. For most of us, at least.

From checking in on each and every attendee, one by one, to emailing them back-and-forth until you can find a time that works for them…and then having to do it all over again, because — surprises, surprise — they won’t be able to attend the meeting at the scheduled time.

If you’re currently operating like that, you shouldn’t be surprised that it takes hours or even days for you to schedule a single meeting.

You shouldn’t blame yourself for developing a toxic relationship with meetings, either. If just scheduling them drains all of your energy, the meeting prep and the actual meetings will always feel like exhausting work.

You can follow every meeting productivity tip to a T. Unless you have a scheduling platform that helps you do your job, your meetings will remain the same.

With that in mind, here are today’s best productivity tips for meetings:

  • Schedule your meetings with one email. No more, no less.
  • Find the best time for every attendee without emailing them back-and-forth.
  • Schedule and organize your meetings inside your inbox, instead of switching to multiple tabs.

Do you often feel unproductive online meetings? It’s not your fault.

If you’ve been trying to get this online meeting thing right for a couple years now, you’ve probably struggled with at least one of the following situations:

  • The pain of scheduling and setting up meetings on a bunch of different platforms.
  • Emailing guests back-and-forth until you can, by some miracle, settle on a time slot that works for them.
  • Organizing unproductive meetings that bring up “this could’ve been an email” jokes.

The blame (and the joke) is on the platform you’re using.

‍But, the truth is, everyone is wrestling with the same online meeting issues you are. Every. Single. Day. Yes, even though they might look like they’re experts at it.

Here’s why:

Because the seemingly simple task of scheduling emails takes us days, when it should take us seconds.And we all know that it’s virtually impossible to plan an effective meeting when we’ve spent half of our planning time on haphazard scheduling. You don’t need a better agenda. Not necessarily. What you need is a scheduling platform that respects your time!

For a sneak peek, please click here.

For key art, please click here.

In the back-to-back premiere episodes, the crisis center focuses on peril surrounding some of the youngest members of the Chagrin Valley community. 

Season two begins with the episode “Mama Bear to Grizzly Bear.” Supervisor Charline Polk, the Mama Bear of Chagrin Valley Dispatch, takes a 911 call from a concerned grandfather looking for his missing 2-week-old grandchild. Charline and the team combine forces to unravel the mystery.

In the second episode that airs immediately after, “Matt on the Move,” Matt Reinke has learned the ins and outs of dispatching and is ready for the next step. Before he decides to apply for supervisor, however, he must help a young girl threatened with a knife and a panicked caller with a baby struggling to breathe.

Throughout the season, episodes will feature dispatchers and supervisors calmly taking charge, extracting information to relay to law enforcement and first responders, all the while helping confused and frightened callers on the other end of the line. Viewers will see the team tested as a couple is heard screaming over an open line; when a welfare check spirals into a pursuit; when a caller must be coached into performing CPR before it’s too late; and a neighbor who pulls a gun on a caller and her family. The season includes many impactful stories driven by the dispatchers and supervisors who are largely unseen in the community, yet make a huge impact.    

From Warner Brothers Unscripted Television, “911 Crisis Center” is produced by Shed Media in association with Green Lakes Productions. Dan Peirson, Lisa Shannon, Adam Kassen, Dena Waxman and Shannon O’Rourke executive produce.

KROY – ANIMACHINA

Earlier this year, multi-disciplinary recording artist KROY teamed up with The PHI Centre in Montreal to turn her music into a live performance art piece entitled ANIMACHINADuring this residency, Jonathon Anderson at the Creative School of Ryerson University programmed three robot arms to play music and mirror KROY‘s movements, to tell a communal story that blurs the line between man and machine and what interpersonal connection looks like in the modern world. Today, KROY releases a seven-part video series for ANIMACHINA. Watch HERE.

In these videos, KROY strips down her hyper-pop and hyper-sensitive sound, to showcase her vocals in a truly haunting way. Performing alongside a robot, she leaves viewers feeling entranced and unsettled as she tackles topics like love and violence. Working through the seven videos, KROY performs recent songs like “Ryan Atwood,” teases upcoming releases, and interweaves a storyline that tethers the series together.

On ANIMACHINA, the PHI Centre said, “These monster-machines, with unforgivable tentacles, perform choreographic movements with surgical precision. In unison, they strum, modulate the artist’s voice on pedals and document the scene themselves. The danger, inherent in this dance of death where a single coordination error can lead to a fatal accident, allows KROY and his team to touch the sublime. Because it is with the machines that she finds comfort and that she fully vibrates.”

These videos are a hint at what is to come from the avantgarde artist later this year as she closes one chapter of her artistry, and fiercely blows open the next.

ANIMACHINA PLAYLIST

performance ONE . approaching and becoming

performance TWO . trust and alter

performance THREE . gate and infiltrate

performance FOUR . translation and connection

performance FIVE . strong and tame

performance SIX . cycle and breath

performance SEVEN . love and violence

ABOUT KROY

Introspection. Lust for connection. Loneliness can transform you in many ways. Isolation will move you to places you never thought you could find yourself. Some would choose to wait for a human connection. Others would wish for rooms full of strangers. Social anxiety has pushed KROY in the direction of finding intimacy elsewhere. Finding comfort in the digital world, having rooted most of her personality in Myspace and Tumblr, KROY finds freedom online. Connecting with people she’ll never meet. Confessing secrets she’d never tell any physical being. Merging her obsession with robots with her musical abilities, a pandemic became a playground. Getting in contact with other creatives also in a state of emergency, a team was quickly formed. With consultants in AI, digital arts, physics and computer sciences. With Ryerson University’s Creative Lab supporting and hosting the project. With three KUKA arms ready to learn how to play live instruments. Ready to learn choreography and movements that match KROY’s.

The Crypto market is divided into numerous sub-parts like crypto trading, mining, crypto investment, etc. You can use your surplus money in any sub-branch of the crypto market. 

Blockchain is one of the most crucial factors that add some nourishing features to crypto tokens. It is a fact that most cryptocurrencies are based on blockchain technology in which data is shared between many computers within the network. It leads to developing a decentralized network which will provide you secure connection while making any transaction. Bitcoin is the foremost blockchain-based currency specifically designed for being used in decentralized platforms. 

According to some developers, BTC is still in its developing stage and will provide a fruitful outcome shortly. In simple terms, BTC is an ideology based on future traditional payment mechanisms. The primary reason for which majority of the majority of people prefer blockchain-based crypto tokens instead of traditional payment methods is the features offered by it. By noticing the potential of blockchain technology, numerous companies have adopted it in their field of work. 

Working of blockchain

You might know that most cryptocurrencies are based on a blockchain system, a distributed ledger. Developers mainly introduced this technology to provide secured and automating transactions via digital currencies. However, for back the profound concept of BTC and other blockchain-based cryptocurrencies, the structure of blockchain is more complex and secure. 

Using a traditional banking system to make any transaction is time-consuming and available in some regions. You mean you have to travel a distance to pay money to another party. On the other hand, cryptocurrency offers users the convenience of making payments in one click from anywhere. Moreover, you can access this digital payment mechanism with the help of internet connectivity. 

This is possible because of blockchain or distributed ledger technology, leading to the developing decentralized system. The integrated structure of blockchain helps make instant transactions across international boundaries.

You might know that anyone can freely join the blockchain because it is an open network, and you can also mine new crypto tokens by creating a new block and adding it to the blockchain.    

Application of blockchain in the international market 

The traditional trading system is genuinely unfitted in this modern era of technology and has had numerous downturns. Generally, investors and traders faced tons of issues with this old trading system. Some of the most common complications were related to a security point of view. On the other hand, blockchain can help you interact with international traders without any risk of losing money because of high-level security. 

You can make immediate payments through blockchain, which is the crucial reason most traders prefer using blockchain-based cryptocurrencies. The introduction of blockchain helps overcome the downtime of the traditional trading system and offers numerous opportunities to traders around the globe. 

The most common use of blockchain other than cryptocurrency is setting up a private connection between two parties for sharing confidential information. Even the government is not allowed to intervene in this personal information. However, the third party can’t get involved in any activity conducted through the blockchain network. 

How blockchain is the future of the global marketplace?

There is no restriction or qualifications needed for joining a blockchain network. Today, blockchain technology has more potential than any other secured network around the globe.

ROLLS-ROYCE PHANTOM ORCHID

Rolls-Royce recently announced their latest inspirational piece, the Rolls-Royce Phantom Orchid. Designed specifically with Singapore in mind, the Phantom is extremely rare as just one singular model has been produced. Looking to the orchid for motivation, the team chose this reference to serve as a representation of beauty and strength. Serving as a withstanding focal point in the history of art, this marks the first instance of an orchid being incorporated into a Rolls-Royce commission. Exemplifying the attributes of elegance and glamour with a light but edgy flow comes to Rolls-Royce Phantom Orchid.

BESPOKE COLLABORATION

The new commission comes as a partnership with the Bespoke Collective and the withstanding Rolls-Royce team. This imperative duo saw the likes of top designers and artists coming together to create a work of art.

Michael Bryden, Lead Designer, Rolls-Royce Bespoke, spoke on the Phantom and how it came to its full loveliness. He stated, “[the] Phantom Extended, our pinnacle motor car, was chosen to be the ‘blank canvas’ for this commission. Our concept envisaged a balanced yet progressive design, which echoes the values of the Singapore region. The orchid is seen in many facets of Asian life, a reminder that the resilient adapt and thrive regardless of the evolving environment. Phantom is the only motor car in the world to feature the Gallery, a space that enables one to exhibit art, sculptures, or objects of self-expression in the sanctuary of Phantom’s interior. For Phantom Orchid, we collaborated with award-winning artist Helen Amy Murray to create a unique, hand-sculpted silk artwork. The delicate materials and techniques that were deployed in the creation of this piece are protected behind an application of pure glass, that runs uninterrupted across the fascia of Phantom. Finished in an elegant blend of Grace White, Havana and Smoke Grey with Dark Olive stitching, the interior evokes the calm and serene nature which is inherent to the character of Phantom.”

HAND-SCULPTED ART

Through the association with Helen Amy Murray and her team, a new wave of work with Phantom’s Gallery has been generated. Their fresh and innovative design transformed the interpretation of a motor car’s presence.

Helen found creativity from the orchid, often referencing the Singapore Orchid, hence as to why the commission was constructed with the location as muse. She worked around the clock, totaling over 200 hours of subtlety refining her designs with her team of six.

The design came to initially through Helen’s hand drawings and sketches, before moving to a digital media that would ensure the success of the piece. Through the virtual enhancements, the team was able to print the art directly onto the silk crepe satin. More handwork came into play for the final part of the layout process, where they hand-molded the flowers to stimulate a 3D force.

ORCHID SANCTUARY

Rolls-Royce Bespoke Designer Yohan Benchetrit worked his magic on the interior of the Phantom. He started with an orchid-motivated Picnic Table Inlay through the rear of the suite. Moving on, Bespoke treadplates were an addition that mimicked a like theme sans text to all who hopped into the motor car. Natural colors finished out the interior of the Phantom, adding to the luxurious experience imitated.

GLORIOUS EXTERIOR

To add to the exclusivity of this Phantom, a distinct paint was crafted using advanced, modern paint technology. The color started with a base of Arctic White with a light tint of violet was laid over, motivated by the main inspiration for the piece, orchids. The addition of fine glass particles within the paint color establishes a dazzling aura.
