    Tribute Album to Songwriter John D. Loudermilk Debuts Sept. 15, 2017 
 Features Emmylou Harris, Rosanne Cash, Ricky Skaggs, Doyle Lawson and Others by Edward Morris 9/13/2017 http://www.cmt.com/news/1786501/tribute-album-to-songwriter-john-d-loudermilk-debuts-sept-15/ In one of the most ambitious projects yet launched to memorialize a Nashville songwriter, Vector Recordings will release on Sept. 15 the album "A Tribute to John D. Loudermilk." Recorded live last year during a concert at Tennessee's Franklin Theatre, the project will also be spun off as a PBS special and possibly as a commercial DVD. Among the more than two dozen artists performing on the 24-cut album are Emmylou Harris, Ricky Skaggs, Rosanne Cash, Rodney Crowell, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, John Jorgenson, Tommy Emmanuel and Lee Roy Parnell. All artist royalties from the project will be donated to MusiCares, the Recording Academy's charity to aid in-need members of the music community. Loudermilk, who was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1976, died in 2016, a few months after the tribute concert.

  17. The following, from this: http://www.johnedmark.com/statement/ "If change is the only constant in nature, it is written in the language of geometry. Much of my work celebrates the patterns underlying space and growth. Through kinetic sculptures and transformable objects, I strive to give viewers access to the surprising structures hidden within apparently amorphous space. While art is often a vehicle for fantasy, my work is an invitation to plunge deeper into our own world and discover just how astonishing it can be. In experiencing a surprising behavior, one’s sense of wonder and delight is increased by the recognition that it is occurring within the context of actual physical constraints. The works can be thought of as instruments that amplify our awareness of the sometimes tenuous relationship between facts and perception. I employ precise mathematics in the design and fabrication of my work. I do this neither out of a desire to exhibit precision per se, nor to exalt the latest technology, but because the questions I’m trying to formulate and answer about spatial relationships can only be addressed with geometrically exacting constructions. Mathematical precision is an essential ally in my goal of achieving clarity. Nature is generous and inexhaustible, rewarding curiosity with startling insights and an abundance of ever more beautiful mysteries. Through my work I endeavor to share the joy of discovery with others in a continuing pursuit of the timeless patterns of change."

  21. Microphones used in headsets for astronauts

    By using the word "astronaut" - I take it to mean, that - You are referring to the United States of America's space program: "NASA?" (To differentiate from the 'Soviet Union' (back in the day) - As they used the term: космонавт 'cosmonaut' (English) Because, the following information only applies to "NASA" ... And, This reply will not answer your question, exactly? (re: What type of mics "Dynamic/ Electret /etc" - for the first astronauts ...) But ... (While I work on gathering that info) You can read here - (the transition from the earlier headsets) https://www.nasa.gov/vision/earth/technologies/headsets.html See also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plantronics See also: http://www.plantronics.com/us/company/heritage.jsp For information on the 'current' technology? - https://www.nasa.gov/topics/moonmars/features/hatsman.html And, also: https://techport.nasa.gov/view/6982 And, also: https://sbir.nasa.gov/content/wevoice-inc If this does not satisfy you? - Then, I suggest ... https://www.nasa.gov/content/submit-a-question-for-nasa ( use the subject / option 'History' ) Or ... https://www.nasa.gov/about/contact/index.html If ... Indeed, your inquiry is about the type of microphones used in Soviet's space program? - Well, then ... Good Luck? Because, as I imagine it - The 'Soviet's' info might be a bit harder to come by? (Maybe someone else can chime in on that?)
