Music For A Cause

Google tests new music video search results

some five hours after the festival began. Acts from Capitol Cities, Weezer, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Neighbourhood kept the crowd going despite afternoon rain. I see the weather has cleared up, said Dan Reynolds, the lead singer of Imagine Dragons. I guess we came at a good time. Reynolds also gave a shout out to the bands drummer Daniel Platzman, who is from Atlanta. Reynolds also expressed his appreciation for being a part of the festival. There are so many great bands at this festival, he said. Im just glad to be on stage to perform for you all. Thank you for live music. We wouldnt be here if it wasnt for the support of you By nighttime, Red Hot Chili Peppers was the main attraction. The veteran rock back didnt give much commentary during that performance. All they mostly did was play their biggest hits from Give It Away, Scar Tissue to Snow (Hey Oh). Bassist Flea brought energy to the stage throughout their performance, prancing across the stage while singer Anthony Kiedis sang away. Many in the crowd responded with the words of their songs.

Deodhar set the mood for some flawless acoustics, belting out one original after another. He began with a melodic number called ‘Miles’, and drew instant applause. The performance was a mellow intermingling of the three instruments and Deodhar’s deep vocals- while the acoustic guitar lent a rustic touch to create the song, the bass and percussion created a groove. He then played a dark but affable track, ‘Till I’. This down-tempo hit effortlessly gave way to the upbeat ‘If I knew’, ‘Obscurity’ and ‘Morning Coffee’. This was another set of originals that made an apt accompaniment to the instruments played to perfection. Raga pianist Utsav Lal, also known as a young Steinway artist, then conjured some magic of his own. He played a fine repertoire of Indian classical ragas on the piano, sprinkling the performance with elements of Jazz and Western classical. His on-stage improvisations were in sync with the steady rhythm of the percussion, leaving the spectators spell-bound. Harit Nagpal, a member of the audience, said, “I never heard anyone play Indian classical music on the piano. This is amazing music. We all have heard big artistes at big places. There are equally talented artistes that are not known, but who are remarkable at their art. This show brings such artistes to the fore. It is to see such artistes play that I have come here.

Google appears to be testing a new way to display the top search result for music videos. (Credit: Screenshot by YvoSchaap via Twitter) Music videos are no small potatoes for YouTube, and Google’s looking at making them bigger in Google Search results — literally. Related stories: Chrome for iOS learns pronouns As part of Google’s quest to more tightly integrate its different services, the company appears to be experimenting with how music videos appear in Google Search results, according to the blog Google Operating System . The top search result for a music video would be significantly larger preview of the video itself, in the style of a Google Now card, with additional information such as the artist name, song title, album name, and year released. It’s not clear if the preview will let you play the video directly from the search results list, or if you’ll have to click through to YouTube. It’s also unclear whether Google will be opening this test out to more people. A request for comment by Google and YouTube was not immediately returned. CNET will update the story when we hear back from them. Here’s how the search results look now for the same artist and song. (Credit: Screenshot by Google Operating System) Topics:
