A Night with Az Samad – Solo Guitar Retrospective

Az Samad

If you’ve not heard of the name Az Samad, then it’s about time you did. The talented Malaysian guitarist-composer is set to perform an extended solo guitar concert at No Black Tie next week, something he hasn’t done since June last year. Formerly based in Berkeley, California, Az is now back in Kuala Lumpur.

[ad#Google Adsense 336×280]

 

[pullquote align=”left”]”Az squeezes out a whole new sonic universe for the acoustic guitar.”  Pete Teo[/pullquote] Az will be performing two sets of solo guitar  from material he wrote back in 2001 until present day. Expect some rarities never before performed. Known for his poetic pieces, finger-picking and impressive fret-work, Az will also play on solo steel string guitar and nylon string guitar (perhaps even some solo electric!).

Az cites Nirvana, Michael Hedges and Dave Matthews Band as major influences, and the late Eric Roche whom he met in UK.

Az has an impressive performance history aside from his accolades and critical acclaim. No stranger to the local music scene, he was nominated for Best Solo Performance (Music) in the first ever Cameronian Arts Award in 2003, a prestigious event for the arts community in Malaysia. He has also performed alongside Shelley Leong and Jazz Odyssey at various jazz and music festivals.

A little background of Az from his website:
Guitarist-Composer Az Samad has performed in the United States, Europe and Asia. A versatile musician who has appeared on sixteen CDs (seven of which are his solo releases), Az has worked with Grammy winners Flaco Jiménez and Max Baca, drummer Bernie Dresel (Brian Setzer Orchestra), singer-songwriters Tara Linda and Reza Salleh, guitarists John Stowell, Stuart Ryan, and Teja Gerken; world music ensemble Bogofusion; electronic jazz-funk group Planet Loop; Cumbia-Dub band Candelaria; and string jazz ensemble JazzMine. He has also performed as part of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra in sold-out performances and worked with conductors Richard Kaufman (USA) and Mark Fitz-Gerald (UK).[pullquote align=”right”]”This is one guy who can finger-pick, hold massive grape fruit-sized chords and make his guitar gently weep with the best.” KLue Magazine[/pullquote]

As an educator, Az has been on the faculty of Berklee College of Music’s Summer Guitar Sessions and has taught workshops at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut; Culturefest in Pipestem, West Virginia; and The Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, California. Recently, he embarked on his first European tour with California-based Tara Linda & The Tortilla Western Trio performing in the Folk Segovia Festival, Spain & a 3-night residency at Töpferei Niehenke, Hasbergen, Germany. The Amsterdam Recordings – his first solo electric fingerstyle guitar album was recorded during the tour. Previously based in Berkeley, California; Az now lives in Kuala Lumpur.

Love this rendition of Over the Rainbow / Getaran Jiwa:

So, come experience a night of Az’s signature blend of textured acoustic brilliance and poetic explorations.

NIKE GS FOOTBALL BOOT COMBINES PERFORMANCE ENGINEERING WITH LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Nike’s lightest, fastest and greenest production boot ever

MALAYSIA JULY 12TH 2012 – Nike has unveiled a new football boot to be worn this summer that is the lightest, fastest production boot Nike has ever made, and the most environmentally friendly boot available.

Designers were challenged to create a new football boot stripped down to include only the essential elements that deliver lightweight performance and high speed control in game situations. The result is the Nike GS, constructed using renewable and recycled materials and designed for explosive performance on the pitch and lower impact on the planet.

Every component of the Nike GS has been optimized to reduce weight and waste, creating Nike’s lightest football boot ever at 160 grams for a size 9.

Conceived and engineered in Italy, the Nike GS features recycled and renewable materials throughout the upper and plate design. A bio-based traction plate made primarily from castor beans ensures strength and flexibility on pitch alongside a sock liner made from 100% castor beans. The boot laces, lining and tongue are made from a minimum of 70% recycled materials. The toeboard and collar, feature at least 15% recycled materials.

“The Nike GS is the lightest and fastest football boot we’ve ever made and really defines a new era in how we create, design and produce elite football boots,” said Andy Caine, global design director for Nike Football. “When you can deliver a boot that combines high end performance and a low environmental footprint that’s a winning proposition for players and planet.”

Nike GS includes the following performance, recycled and renewable materials in the new boot:

Traction Plate & Stud Configuration:

Nike GS traction plate combines a high performance chassis with a strong responsive and agile form.  The sole plate is made of 50% renewable Pebax® Renu (a plant derived material made with 97% castor beans) and 50% TPU, made from 32% renewable materials. The plate is 15% lighter than a traditional plate composition.

The traction plate includes a minimalist diamond-silhouette spine, which provides optimal flex and agility in plate performance.

Anatomically positioned studs maximize speed in multiple directions to ensure responsive and assured movement on pitch.

Touch & Control:

A solvent-free Kanga-Lite synthetic upper provides zonal reinforcement for exceptional touch and control. The synthetic upper also supports lockdown on midfoot and arch area.

The lightweight and chemical-free sock liner is made of 100% castor beans and eliminates any layers for a snug fit and enhanced touch on the ball.

Stability & Support:

Anatomical and asymmetrical heel counter and heel bucket locks the foot down for stability and support. The counter is made of Pebax® Renu, derived from castor bean oil.
