High Five (Columbus)
High Five was a 2010 marketing effort to create a national identity for Columbus, Ohio by linking the five most distinct districts along 5 miles of historic High Street. The Ohio State University has one of the largest campuses in the nation. With over 50,000 students in Columbus alone, the district provides sporting events, concerts and a vibrant night life; the Short North is a collection of galleries and boutiques at the artistic heart of Ohio. With arches lining the street, this district provides everything from historic architecture and creative art, to a bohemian setting to enjoy shopping and dining in what is labelled as a "must see" destination by many travel magazines; the Arena District is a 75 acres development project, home to numerous housing and dining options, along with one-of-a-kind concert and sporting venues. With a large presence of Nationwide Insurance, the district hosts the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena and the Columbus Clippers at Huntington Park. Home to the Ohio Statehouse, downtown produces a mix of pleasure.
Headquarters of multiple industries are located here, including Huntington Bank and Nationwide Insurance. Parks such as Columbus Commons and the Scioto Mile provide a daily refuge while historic theaters are within walking distance. German Village is a historic neighborhood south of Downtown Columbus. With a number of signature shops and destinations, this area adds a small town feel to an otherwise urban space. High Five Columbus
Math rock is a style of indie rock that emerged in the late 1980s in the United States, influenced by post-hardcore, progressive rock bands such as King Crimson, 20th century minimal music composers such as Steve Reich. Math rock is characterized by complex, atypical rhythmic structures, odd time signatures, angular melodies, extended dissonant, chords, it bears similarities to post-rock. Whereas most rock music uses a 4/4 meter, math rock uses non-standard time signatures such as 7/8, 11/8, or 13/8, or features changing meters based on various groupings of 2 and 3; this rhythmic complexity, seen as mathematical in character by many listeners and critics, is what gives the genre its name. The sound is dominated by guitars and drums as in traditional rock, because of the complex rhythms, the drums section of math rock groups tend to be more salient than in other genres, it is commonplace to find guitarists in math rock groups using the tapping technique of guitar playing, loop pedals are incorporated, as by the band Battles.
Guitars are often played in clean tones more than in other upbeat rock songs, but some groups use distortion. Lyrics are not the focus of math rock. Vocals are not overdubbed, are positioned low in the mix, as in the recording style of Steve Albini, or Rolling Stones producer Jimmy Miller. Many of math rock's most famous groups are instrumental such as Don Caballero or Hella, though both have experimented with singing to varying degrees; the term math rock has been passed off as a joke that has developed into what some believe is a musical style. An advocate of this is Matt Sweeney, singer with Chavez, who themselves were linked to the math rock scene. A significant intersection exists between math rock and emo, exemplified by bands such as Tiny Moving Parts or American Football, whose sound has been described as "twinkly, mathy rock, a sound that became one of the defining traits of the emo scene throughout the 2000s." The Canadian punk rock group Nomeansno have been cited by music critics as a "secret influence" on math rock, predating much of the genre's development by more than a decade.
An more avant-garde group of the same era, featured the guitarist Fred Frith and the bassist Bill Laswell. With some influence from the rapid-fire energy of punk, Massacre's influential music used complex rhythmic characteristics. Black Flag's 1984 album, My War included unusual polyrhythms. Bands such as Because of Ghosts, The Sinking Citizenship, My Disco emerged in the early 2000s in Melbourne; the European math rock scene started in the late 90s to early 2000, including bands such as Adebisi Shank, The Redneck Manifesto, Three Trapped Tigers and This Town Needs Guns and Uzeda. Foals was formed in 2005; the most significant Japanese groups include Ruins, Zeni Geva, Aburadako and Doom. Yona-Kit is a collaboration between Japanese and U. S. musicians. Other Japanese groups which incorporate math rock in their music include Ling Tosite Sigure, Zazen Boys and Mouse on the Keys. Skin Graft Records and Tzadik Records have released Japanese math rock albums in the United States; the city of Pittsburgh is home to Don Caballero, whose drummer, Damon Che, is involved with the international math rock band Bellini as well as Tabula Rasa, Knot Feeder.
Bands from Washington, D. C. include The Dismemberment Plan, Shudder to Think, Faraquet, 1.6 Band, Autoclave Jawbox, Circus Lupus. Polvo of Chapel Hill, North Carolina is considered math rock, although the band has disavowed that categorization. In California, math rock groups from San Diego include Upsilon Acrux, Drive Like Jehu, Antioch Arrow, Tristeza, No Knife, Heavy Vegetable, Sleeping People, Tera Melos, Chon. Northern California was the base of Game Theory and The Loud Family, both led by Scott Miller, said to "tinker with pop the way a born mathematician tinkers with numbers"; the origin of Game Theory's name is mathematical, suggesting a "nearly mathy" sound cited as "IQ rock." By the turn of the 21st century, most of the generation bands such as Sweep the Leg Johnny had disbanded and the genre had been roundly disavowed by most bands labeled with the "math rock" moniker. Bands in the late 90's and 2000s, such as This Town Needs Guns and American Football, began combining math rock and emo, creating a much more vocally oriented sound.
In the mid-2000s, many math rock bands enjoyed renewed popularity. Slint and Chavez embarked on reunion tours, while Shellac toured and released their first album in seven years. Don Caballero reunited with a new lineup and released an album in 2006, while several of its original members joined new projects, such as the band Knot Feeder. Dale, P..

Tripper (Hella album)
Tripper is the fifth full-length studio album by math rock band Hella. It was their first release through Sargent House; the album is an instrumental record. It was released on August 30, 2011 and marks the band's reduction back to core members Zach Hill and Spencer Seim, after having expanded to a five-piece for their 2007 release There's No 666 in Outer Space, it charted at No 41 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums for 17 September 2011. "Headless" – 4:35 "Self Checkout" – 3:11 "Long Hair" – 3:13 "Yubacore" – 3:45 "Netgear" – 5:36 "Kid Life Crisis" – 4:16 "On the Record" – 2:17 "Furthest" – 3:43 "Psycho Bro" – 4:08 "Osaka" – 4:48 Spencer Seim - guitar, bass guitar, synthesizer Zach Hill - drums, synthesizer Andy Morin - production
Hella is an American math rock band from Sacramento, California. The primary members of the band are Zach Hill on drums. In 2005, the band expanded their live band by adding Dan Elkan on vocals, rhythm guitar and synthesizer and Jonathan Hischke on synth bass guitar for their Church Gone Wild/Chirpin' Hard tour. In 2006 they reformed as a five-piece line-up including Seim, Carson McWhirter, Aaron Ross & Josh Hill. In 2009, the band was reduced back to core members Seim; as high school students Spencer Seim and Zach Hill were both members of the Northern California band Legs on Earth along with Josh Hill on guitar and Julian Imsdahl on bass and vocals. The band achieved some moderate local success, becoming renowned for their wild live shows, young age, Primus-esque sound; the band sounded similar to Primus the vocals and bass but Zach Hill described it in an interview as pop music but like Devo and Talking Heads. They released one CD in 2001 called Lasers & Saviors on local record label Para-Sight Records, now out of print.
In 2001 they went on hiatus and broke up. Imsdahl is in the band Grandstream, was in the band Eraserhead. Hill and Seim decided they wanted to pursue a less mainstream sound. According to Hill, they didn't always intend to remain a duo, though: " had intentions to start a band, like… kinda like what we were doing with just the two of us, but with more people. But, we couldn't find the other people so we decided to do it just with the two of us." Their name is a reference to the slang word "hella", common throughout Northern California. Hella's earliest recording was the self-released Leather Diamond EP, hand-assembled in a nondescript cardboard sleeve and sold at some of their first shows. On March 19, 2002, they debuted proper with the full-length Hold Your Horse Is LP on 5 Rue Christine; the Falam Dynasty 7" was released that year. After the release of Hold Your Horse Is, 2003 saw Hella begin to deviate from the basic framework in the studio, although their live sound remained unchanged. Released on June 17 of that year, Hella's Bitches Ain't Shit But Good People EP featured many firsts for the band.
An earlier recorded version of a song from their first LP, "Republic of Rough And Ready", became their first released song to feature vocals. A version of "1-800-Ghost-Dance" with vocals by Elkan was available as a downloadable mp3 on the band's website in late 2002; the Bitches EP found Hella using bass guitar and drum machine for the first time. Total Bugs Bunny on Wild Bass an EP, was released on August 26 and featured the use of synth and drum machine and an apparent influence from 8-bit video game music, first hinted at on the opening track of Hold Your Horse Is, "The D. Elkan". Hella rounded out the year with a split live double CD with San Francisco, California-based band Dilute. Hella released their second full-length LP in 2004, The Devil Isn't Red. Other releases for the year included a split 7" and a limited edition, Japan-only release of the three-song Acoustics EP. For their 2005 release, Hella again experimented with their sound in the studio. Church Gone Wild/Chirpin Hard, released through Suicide Squeeze Records, is a double-solo album, with Zach Hill and Seim each recording a whole disc's worth of material independent of each other.
Hill's disc, Church Gone Wild, is a 56-minute noise piece which featured Zach doing all the vocals and instruments, save for a few guest appearances. Hella expanded their live band to a quartet in 2005, adding Dan Elkan on vocals, rhythm guitar, synthesizer, Jonathan Hischke on bass guitar in order to play songs from Total Bugs Bunny on Wild Bass and Church Gone Wild/Chirpin Hard live, in most cases for the first time; this line-up toured the US in support of Out Hud in Spring, System of a Down, The Mars Volta, Les Claypool, Dillinger Escape Plan in the fall as well as numerous headlining dates in the U. S. as well as visits to Japan and the UK. A DVD/CD EP release titled Concentration Face/Homeboy was released on November 8, 2005 on 5RC Records. In 2006, Hella consisted of Spencer Seim, Zach Hill, Hill's cousin Josh, Seim's Advantage bandmate Carson McWhirter, Aaron Ross; the first release from this line-up, entitled There's No 666 in Outer Space, was released on January 30, 2007 on Ipecac Recordings.
This album was released in 2008 as a double 180g vinyl on Black Diamond Records with new artwork by Mayka Finkelstein-Amrami. As of August 2008, In an interview with Exclaim Magazine regarding his solo effort, Zach stated that "Hella is a real grey area in general right now"; the future of the band seemed to be up in the air. On Thursday, March 12, 2009, a blog post on Hella's MySpace page revealed that Hella once again consisted of only core members Hill and Seim, that the band was working on writing and recording a new album, due to be finished that year, it revealed that an international tour may have been in the works. On September 4, 2010, Hella announced; as of 2011, Hella is signed to Sargent House, who released their most recent album, Tripper, on August 30, 2011. As of 2018, little to no information has surfaced about new Hella projects; the band is considered by some to be in indefinite hiatus. In addition to their work in Hella and Zach Hi
Virtual International Authority File
The Virtual International Authority File is an international authority file. It is a joint project of several national libraries and operated by the Online Computer Library Center. Discussion about having a common international authority started in the late 1990s. After a series of failed attempts to come up with a unique common authority file, the new idea was to link existing national authorities; this would present all the benefits of a common file without requiring a large investment of time and expense in the process. The project was initiated by the US Library of Congress, the German National Library and the OCLC on August 6, 2003; the Bibliothèque nationale de France joined the project on October 5, 2007. The project transitioned to being a service of the OCLC on April 4, 2012; the aim is to link the national authority files to a single virtual authority file. In this file, identical records from the different data sets are linked together. A VIAF record receives a standard data number, contains the primary "see" and "see also" records from the original records, refers to the original authority records.
The data are available for research and data exchange and sharing. Reciprocal updating uses the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting protocol; the file numbers are being added to Wikipedia biographical articles and are incorporated into Wikidata. VIAF's clustering algorithm is run every month; as more data are added from participating libraries, clusters of authority records may coalesce or split, leading to some fluctuation in the VIAF identifier of certain authority records.

Kieran Hebden, best known by the stage name Four Tet, is an English musician. Hebden first came to prominence as a member of the band Fridge before establishing himself as a solo artist. Hebden has remixed tracks by artists including Aphex Twin, Explosions in the Sky, Super Furry Animals, Ellie Goulding, Lana Del Rey, Manic Street Preachers, Black Sabbath and Madvillain, has produced two albums by psychedelic improvisational group Sunburned Hand of the Man. Hebden's recent output includes a number of improvisational works with jazz drummer Steve Reid and collaborations with Burial and Thom Yorke. Kieran Hebden was born in Putney, England, to a South African-born Indian mother and a British sociology lecturer father, he attended Elliott School in Putney, where he formed the band Fridge with classmates Adem Ilhan and Sam Jeffers. The band signed a recording contract when Hebden was 15, released their first album, Ceefax, on Trevor Jackson's Output Recordings label in March 1997. While working with Fridge, Hebden went on to earn a degree in maths and computer studies from Manchester University.
Hebden's first solo release was the 1997 single "Double Density", released on the Output label under the artist name 4T Recordings. He began releasing material as Four Tet in 1998 with the 36 minute, 25 second single "Thirtysixtwentyfive"; that year, he released another single, the jazz-influenced "Misnomer". 1999's Dialogue, again on Output, was Four Tet's first full-length album release and fused hip hop drum lines with dissonant jazz samples. This was followed by the double A-side single "Glasshead"/"Calamine", to be Four Tet's last release on Output. In late 1999, Warp Records released Warp 10 + 3: Remixes, a tenth-anniversary compilation of remixes of Warp tracks. Hebden contributed a remix of the opening track of Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Volume II, considered to be his break-out release. In 2001, Four Tet's second album Pause was released on Domino Recording Company and found Hebden using more folk and electronic samples, dubbed "folktronica" by the media and press in an attempt to label the style.

An electric guitar is a guitar that uses one or more pickups to convert the vibration of its strings into electrical signals. The vibration occurs when a guitar player strums, fingerpicks, slaps or taps the strings; the pickup uses electromagnetic induction to create this signal, which being weak is fed into a guitar amplifier before being sent to the speaker, which converts it into audible sound. The electric signal can be electronically altered to change the timbre of the sound; the signal is modified using effects such as reverb, distortion and "overdrive". Invented in 1931, the electric guitar was adopted by jazz guitar players, who wanted to play single-note guitar solos in large big band ensembles. Early proponents of the electric guitar on record include Les Paul, Lonnie Johnson, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, T-Bone Walker, Charlie Christian. During the 1950s and 1960s, the electric guitar became the most important instrument in popular music, it has evolved into an instrument, capable of a multitude of sounds and styles in genres ranging from pop and rock to country music and jazz.
It served as a major component in the development of electric blues and roll, rock music, heavy metal music and many other genres of music. Electric guitar design and construction varies in the shape of the body and the configuration of the neck and pickups. Guitars may have a fixed bridge or a spring-loaded hinged bridge, which lets players "bend" the pitch of notes or chords up or down, or perform vibrato effects; the sound of an electric guitar can be modified by new playing techniques such as string bending and hammering-on, using audio feedback, or slide guitar playing. There are several types of electric guitar, including: the solid-body guitar. In pop and rock music, the electric guitar is used in two roles: as a rhythm guitar, which plays the chord sequences or progressions, riffs, sets the beat. In a small group, such as a power trio, one guitarist switches between both roles. In large rock and metal bands, there is a rhythm guitarist and a lead guitarist. Many experiments at electrically amplifying the vibrations of a string instrument were made dating back to the early part of the 20th century.
Patents from the 1910s show telephone transmitters were adapted and placed inside violins and banjos to amplify the sound. Hobbyists in the 1920s used carbon button microphones attached to the bridge. With numerous people experimenting with electrical instruments in the 1920s and early 1930s, there are many claimants to have been the first to invent an electric guitar. Electric guitars were designed by acoustic guitar makers and instrument manufacturers; the demand for amplified guitars began during the big band era. The first electric guitars used in jazz were hollow archtop acoustic guitar bodies with electromagnetic transducers. Early electric guitar manufacturers include Rickenbacker in 1932; the first electrically amplified stringed instrument to be marketed commercially was designed in 1931 by George Beauchamp, the general manager of the National Guitar Corporation, with Paul Barth, vice president. The maple body prototype for the one-piece cast aluminium "frying pan" was built by Harry Watson, factory superintendent of the National Guitar Corporation.
Commercial production began in late summer of 1932 by the Ro-Pat-In Corporation, in Los Angeles, a partnership of Beauchamp, Adolph Rickenbacker, Paul Barth. In 1934, the company was renamed the Rickenbacker Electro Stringed Instrument Company. In that year Beauchamp applied for a United States patent for an Electrical Stringed Musical Instrument and the patent was issued in 1937. By early-mid 1935, Electro String Instrument Corporation had achieved mainstream success with the A-22 "Frying Pan" steel guitar, set out to capture a new audience through its release of the Electro-Spanish Model B and the Electro-Spanish Ken Roberts, the first full 25" scale electric guitar produced; the Electro-Spanish Ken Roberts was revolutionary for its time, providing players a full 25" scale, with easy access to 17 frets free of the body. Unlike other lap-steel electrified instruments produced during the time, the Electro-Spanish Ken Roberts was designed to play standing vertical, upright with a strap; the Electro-Spanish Ken Roberts was the first instrument to feature a hand-operated vibrato as a standard appointment, a device called the "Vibrola," invented by Doc Kauffman.
It is estimated that fewer than 50 Electro-Spanish Ken Roberts were constructed between 1933 and 1937. The solid-body electric guitar is made without functionally resonating air spaces; the first solid-body Spanish standard guitar was offered by Vivi-Tone no than 1934. This model featured a guitar-shaped body of a single sheet
