Modern Measure is an innovative Atlanta-born electronic project composed of Kyle Holly (music production, live drums) and Charlie Thornton (music production, live sampling, bass guitar, alto sax). Since the project’s inception in 2013, the duo has quickly gained fame in the electronic dance scene and beyond for their inventive compositions and vibrant hybrid performances, which expertly fuse live instrumentation with thoughtful and precise production. However, it’s not just fans across the country who have been taking notice; Modern Measure has shared the stage and toured with the likes of Big Gigantic, The Disco Biscuits, Manic Focus, The Floozies, and, after touring with STS9, secured a spot on the jamtronica juggernaut’s independent record label, 1320 Records.Watch STS9’s Jeffree Lerner’s Live Collaboration With Modern Measure For The Song “Daze”Recently, Modern Measure showcased their versatility and creativity of the group with the recently released single “Family System”. The dynamic tune offers up nostalgic, melodic deep house ahead of an abrupt change into propulsive future bass, rife with glitchy sounds and dribbling effects. However, again underlying their penchant for the unpredictable, the song carries on this darker tone while simultaneously opening up to a spacious ending.To complement this dynamic track, today, the band has released a brand-new music video for “Family System” that plays off the song’s distinct vibes throughout. The video—shot and edited by Pedro Marashi of Insouth Productions and co-directed by Pedro and Modern Measure—shows the vibrancy of Modern Measure’s hometown of Atlanta, with gorgeous time-lapses of the city juxtaposed with more intimate footage of the band, city streets, friends, residents, and more.Modern Measure Shares Full Stream Of New Album, “For The Moment”As told by the band, “This song marks the beginning of a new creative direction for us and with the fresh explorations into new sonic territory, it felt like the right time to look back on what shaped our sound. In doing so we discovered our family, friends, and the city of Atlanta, and its culture and music scene were our main inspirations. We wanted to capture this with the video for ‘Family System’, and we think Pedro did a great job putting this feeling into images. Working with a kindred creative spirit was important to the vibe as well and we had a great time exploring our home town with him. We wouldn’t be able to do what we love without the entire Family System.”Today, Live For Live Music is proud to premiere the new music video for Modern Measure’s, “Family System”.

The International Accounting Standards Board’s interpretation’s committee has called a halt to efforts to come up with accounting guidance for companies with non-traditional defined benefit (DB) pension schemes.The plans – dubbed contribution-based promises, or ‘intermediate risk’ plans – have proved to be troublesome to account for under the projected unit credit model found in International Accounting Standard 19, Employee Benefits (IAS19).Since 2004, both the committee, known officially as the International Financial Reporting Standards Interpretations Committee, and the IASB have tried and failed to develop an appropriate accounting approach for this troublesome class of pension plan.The committee’s decision, which emerged during its 29 January meeting, means constituents must now wait for the IASB to add a pensions-accounting project to its work plan. Commenting on the news, Eric Steedman, a leading pensions consultant with Towers Watson, told IPE: “The Interpretations Committee has effectively said the issue is too big for them to solve expeditiously.“Unfortunately, for now at least, this leaves preparers with such plans to carry on ‘doing their best’ with a statement that does not really cater for their situation.”The IFRS IC’s predecessor, the International Financial Reporting Interpretations Committee, published the so-called IFRIC D9 approach for contribution-based promises in a consultation document back in 2004.The committee called a halt to that work, however, when, in 2006, the IASB launched its unsuccessful bid to develop a new accounting methodology to deal with intermediate-risk pensions, or contribution-based promises.But fresh life was breathed into that approach, when the IFRS IC decided to take another look at contribution-based promises accounting.Both D9, and the IASB’s contribution-based promises model, set out to address the accounting challenges that arise when IAS19’s projected unit credit measurement model and discounting approach is applied to non-traditional DB plans.One obstacle to good accounting that is often cited by critics of IAS19 is that the standard forces them to discount projected returns on a pool of equity assets using either a high-quality corporate bond or government bond discount rate.The mood around the committee table during the 29 January meeting was largely downbeat on the committee’s prospects for bringing the effort to a successful conclusion that preparers would welcome.Laurence Rivat, a senior audit partner with Deloitte in France, said she was unclear who would benefit from any guidance that the committee might come up with.Rivat reported that constituents had told her that any guidance that might emerge from the committee would not change what they “are currently doing”.She added: “What we really need is that the board take on a project to review fundamentally IAS19 to deal with those plans where there is risk-sharing between employees and employers.”Similarly, E&Y partner John O’Grady said: “I would be in favour of discontinuing this project because I don’t think we are able to control ourselves when it comes to scope. That has always been the problem with this.“We are trying to solve some fundamental problems with IAS19, which to me is a board project to sort out IAS19 to deal with the modern types of plans that are out there.”As for the long-term outlook for an IASB-level pensions project, IASB director Alan Teixeira said now might be a good time to accelerate the board’s apparent research project on pensions accounting.Speaking during a 16 September 2013 IASB meeting, Teixeira said the pensions research effort was “on the longer-term research plan” but had no staff allocated to it.He also noted that no standard setters had “expressed an interest in the project.”According to information posted on the IASB’s website, the board expects to hold a consultation on the shape of its future agenda in 2015.A feedback statement on the IASB’s 2011 agenda consultation bracket pensions accounting, share-based payments and income taxes together as longer-term priorities.
