"Chris Saunders is a Los Angeles based artist originally from Boston, Massachusetts, and has been teaching at the Art Center College and creating original design content in LA since 2004. From 2004 to 2009 he created commercials in the Motion Graphics industry.  In 2009, he had a moment of clarity while working full time in a more traditional design environment and saw the future of art and computer driven 2D and 3D graphics and animation across multiple media platforms and decided to lead rather than follow.

He broke out of the traditional work environment and began freelancing, working with clients such as Xbox, Nokia, HP and Sprint.  He founded his own company, Lunara, in 2010 and began assembling teams who develop visually stunning content for mobile applications, architectural installations and commercials, involving technologies that push the limits of story telling in a fully immersive design experience. 
He currently creates in his office overlooking the sand and Pacific in Venice Beach, where he and his team are leading the cutting edge art and design for our ever-expanding media platforms."

russiankiki@saulilambert he was performing with some local singer at the Life Jazz night in W Hotel in Hollywood last night. I actually didn't even recognize him at first. But he did an amazing job, he stayed to hang out after the performance and he was very friendly and sweet with everyone.

Adam Lambert was snapped in LA last weak.
The stylish star rocked Saint Laurent AW13 studded shirt with a pair of bleach splattered, distressed jeans.
Adam styled the look with a selection of silver and black jewelry and his belovedAoussams by Christian Louboutin .

Brian May talks about performing with Adam Lambert and the possibility of a tour during BIG 100.3 interview:

Interviewer: "You performed at the iHeart Music Festival a few weeks ago with Adam Lambert. What's it like performing with Adam?"

Brian May: "It's great, he makes you smile. He's just an extraordinary voice and a really good singer. He's maturing fast as a singer and he's a great entertainer, he's a natural. So although he doesn't sing like Freddie, they have a lot in common, the two of them. And I know that if Freddie saw Adam, he would be just smiling all over his face because you know the guy's a real artist and just a one off, I mean that's a voice in a billion. He turns out to be a really nice guy as well and that's so important because you can't work with people you don't like and you don't relate to. He's great and he's wonderful to have around and I hope we do more stuff at some point."

Interviewer: "So you'd be up for maybe touring with Adam? Would you do a lot more shows or maybe just a one off here or there?"

Brian May: "I don't know. We're talking. There are possibilities and you know people are making offers so we're looking at them. You know it would be nice to do a few shows. I don't think I would press the button to do a nine month tour like the old days, because you know we did that and life is too full of other stuff now. You know I have a life, I don't want to sacrifice it to being on the road the whole time. But a little bit would be good, just enough to get good. You know you have to get yourself played in."

FLASHBACK WITH DARREN CRISS & MIA at Chateau Marmont, May 10, 2013:

It's not new.  She told me it's the same as this video:

The Rise Of Concert Promoter Live Nation 


"The rap star Jay-Z is the latest artist to ditch his traditional record label in favour of an all-embracing deal with a concert promoter that is transforming the industry 

Live Nation is the future of the music business. At least that's what it claims, immodestly, and with U2 and apparently now Jay-Z hitching themselves to the company it no longer seems an idle boast.
Live Nation is the world's biggest concert promoter. It owns or operates intimate gig venues, giant rock arenas and music festival sites around the globe, including the Brixton Academy and Wembley Arena in London.
And now it is gunning for a whole new area of business: recorded music.
Madonna, always among the first to spot a trend, signed a record deal with Live Nation last October. Jay-Z is in the final stages of talks that would see the company put out three of the rap star's next albums over 10 years. For both stars, the record deal is just part of a much broader – a very, very lucrative – relationship with Live Nation's artist management division, called Artist Nation, which will have rights over their concerts, websites, merchandising and even other business ventures.
With traditional record labels such as EMI and Universal Music watching their CD sales collapse by 25 per cent over the past two years, the music industry is indeed in a state of profound change, and that has given Michael Rapino, chief executive at Live Nation, his chance to pounce. "I am the worst enemy of the labels," he said recently.
The power shift reflects a money shift. Following the advent of internet file-sharing, a whole generation of music fans don't pay to download songs. They do pay to go see their favourite artists perform live, or for a T-shirt. Major artists might now get three-quarters of their income from touring.
Record labels themselves are signing "360 degree" deals with their artists that cut them in on these non-music revenues, but Live Nation has been arguing that it has more expertise in these newly important areas. Its work to secure corporate sponsorship for tours and venues can be extended to find sponsorship deals for individual artists, it says, and it can take charge of a band's website to better promote the artists and their merchandise. Our aim, Mr Rapino says, is "further strengthening and monetizing the relationship between artists, fans and sponsors – before, during and after live events".
"We want a closer, more direct relationship between the band and its audience," the U2 frontman Bono said when the band signed up to a wide-ranging concert promotion and marketing deal on Monday. "Live Nation has pledged to help us with that."
U2's 12-year deal was rumoured to be worth more than $100m, but unlike Madonna's $120m, 10-year pact it does not cover recorded music, and U2 will continue to be signed with Universal.
$100m? $120m? Punchy numbers. The mooted Jay-Z deal raised eyebrows even higher, leading some analysts to predict that Live Nation's shareholders may revolt before pen reaches dotted line. With upfront payments of $10m an album, a $25m fund to support business ventures such as Jay-Z's clothing lines and his talent-spotting agency, plus other costs, the final price tag on the 10-year deal comes to $150m, it was reported yesterday.
Jay-Z – real name Shawn Carter – has been looking for a new record label since his relationship with Universal soured. For three years until the end of last year he was running the Def Jam label within the company, but despite the emergence of Rihanna as a global star, the overall performance wasdisappointing.
A deal with Live Nation would allow him to increase his focus on touring, he told The New York Times. "In a way I want to operate like an indie band. Play the music on tour instead of relying on radio. Hopefully we'll get some hits out of there and radio will pick it up, but we won't make it with that in mind."
And with younger artists experimenting with distributing their own music online and bypassing the traditional hunt for a major label record deal, he expected that many would look to the Live Nation model in future. "They think: Something must be happening. Madonna did it, she's not slow. Jay-Z, he's not slow either."
David Kenstenbaum, analyst at Morgan Joseph & Co, said he rather hoped reports of the Jay-Z talks were "a trial balloon" sent up by the company to test investor sentiment before committing itself. "While we believe the Artist Nation development is a prudent move for the company, in our view Live Nation would be better off investing in less pricey artists that can fill its amphitheaters and accordingly, generate more favourable economics.," he said.
The company dismisses those qualms, saying that innovative sponsorship deals, online ventures, licensing arrangements and a myriad new ways to squeeze money out of music artists will more than justify the deals it has signed, and Mr Rapino shows no shortage of ambition. A concert promoter all his life, the Canadian sold his company to a group that merged with Clear Channel in 2000, and he was installed as chief executive when Live Nation was spun off in 2005.
Last year the company's revenue jumped 13 per cent to $4.2bn, and it has a goldmine of a database of 25 million people who attend its concerts. That should jump dramatically next year as the company takes over control of ticket sales, currently outsourced to the highly profitable Ticketmaster, giving Live Nation another leg-up in his quest for global domination. The question, though, is whether the share price's downward trajectory can be reversed. With the big bucks being paid to Madonna and now Jay-Z, Mr Rapino is being applauded for betting on the right business model – but worried onlookers think he might be betting too much."
