Peter Gabriel to push for UN talks on Burma

Mizzima News (

March 24, 2006

Well-known singer and activist Peter Gabriel will host the screening of a film and a discussion on Burma at the United States senate on April 4.

The event, organised by WITNESS, a nonprofit human rights group founded by Gabriel, and the US Campaign for Burma, will also be hosted by senators Dianne Feinstein and Mitch McConnell.

According to a statement released by USCB Gabriel plans to use the event to press US politicians to support the passing of a United Nations Security Council resolution on Burma.

“It is long overdue for the UN Security Council to respond to the deepening crisis in Burma,” said Gabriel in the statement.

“We need people of conscience to act now.”

The video to be screened at the event, ‘Always on the Run: Internally Displaced People in Karen State’ produced by WITNESS’ partner organisation Burma Issues, details the experiences of people forcibly displaced by the Burmese military.

Peter Gabriel Uses Sony Oxford Plug-Ins for Olympic Performance

Peter Gabriel performed John Lennon’s “Imagine” at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games in Torino, Italy in February using Sony Oxford plug-ins. According to engineer Dickie Chappell, Gabriel wanted the same vocal sound that they had achieved while recording backing tracks in the studio. For the performance, Gabriel’s voice was processed live through Sony’s Oxford EQ, Dynamics and Reverb plug-ins, which ran in real time on a laptop and Digidesign Digi 002.

“I plugged into the monitor insert,” Chappell says, “and this was sent to the broadcast and front of house. I was worried about it initially, because if I’d lost the input on my laptop, the whole chain out to the world would have been lost. But it was stable and sounded great. All the sound departments were just fine using the feed from my laptop, and Peter was very happy having the studio mix sound in the stadium and for TV.”
