Under Massachusetts law, you have the right to obtain any police report filed in regard to this incident. If you are the victim of identity theft, you also have the right to file a police report and obtain a copy of it.

Massachusetts law also allows consumers to place a security freeze on their credit reports. A security freeze prohibits a credit reporting agency from releasing any information from a consumer’s credit report without written authorization.

In all other cases, a credit reporting agency may charge you up to $5.00 each to place, temporarily lift, or permanently remove a security freeze.

For Vermont Residents:

Below is a check list of suggestions of how you can best protect yourself.

1. Review your bank, credit card and debit card account statements over the next twelve to twenty-four months and immediately report any suspicious activity to your bank or credit union.

2. Monitor your credit reports with the major credit reporting agencies. Equifax (1-866-349-5191), Experian  (1-888-397-3742), and TransUnion (1-800-916-8800). Under Vermont law, you are entitled to a free copy of your credit report from those agencies every twelve months.

Call the credit reporting agency at the telephone number on the report if you find:

• Accounts you did not open.

• Inquiries from creditors that you did not initiate.

• Inaccurate personal information, such as home address and Social Security number.

3. If you do find suspicious activity on your credit reports or other account statements, call your local police or sheriff’s office and file a report of identity theft. Get a copy of the police report. You may need to give copies of the police report to creditors to clear up your records, and also to access some services that are free to identity theft victims.

4. If you find suspicious activity on your credit reports or on your other account statements, consider placing a fraud alert on your credit files so creditors will contact you before opening new accounts. Call any one of the three credit reporting agencies at the numbers above to place fraud alerts with all of the agencies.

5. If you find suspicious activity on your credit reports or on your other account statements, consider placing a security freeze on your credit report so that the credit reporting agencies will not release information about your credit without your express authorization. A security freeze may cause delay should you wish to obtain credit and may cost some money to get or remove, but it does provide extra protection against an identity thief obtaining credit in your name without your knowledge. If you have Internet access and would like to learn more about how to place a security freeze on your credit report, please visit the Vermont Attorney General’s website.  You may also get information about security freezes by contact the credit bureaus at the following addresses: EquifaxExperianTransUnion.  If you do not have Internet access but would like to learn more about how to place a security freeze on your credit report, contact the Vermont Attorney General’s Office at 802-656-3183 (800-649-2424 toll free in Vermont only).

6. Even if you do not find suspicious activity on your credit report or your other account statements, it is important that you check your credit report for the next two years. Just call one of the numbers in paragraph 2 above to order your reports or to keep a fraud alert in place. Helpful information about fighting identity theft, placing a security freeze, and obtaining a free copy of your credit report is available on the Vermont Attorney General’s website at http://www.atg.state.vt.us.  Another helpful source is the Federal Trade Commission website, available athttp://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/idtheft/.

Tutti works with musician Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah to create the STRETCH MUSIC APP

By | TUTTI, TUTTI COLLECTIONS | No Comments

Copy of CS_Stretch Music_Cover_Digital Crop_ FINAL

We’re excited to unveil our latest project.

We worked with Grammy nominee, composer, producer and musician, Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, to create an interactive audio experience for his latest album Stretch Music. The album is currently at the top of the jazz charts.

THE STRETCH MUSIC App, is brand-new interactive album that gives the user full customization over their listening and practicing experience through separate, adjustable audio tracks.

  •  Dissect each song on the album and listen to each part, or combination of parts, isolated from the rest
  •  Build the perfect environment to play over by controlling the customized audio channels of every instrument
  •  Mute, solo, pan and fade any instrument, along with tempo control and looping
  •  Access sheet music scores and parts

What is Stretch Music?

Stretch Music refers to the new musical expression Christian developed that stretches Jazz music. Scott calls Stretch Music “genre blind.” It encompasses many musical forms, languages, textures, conventions, cultures, and processes as a “means of extending the dialogue of the human condition across the lines of cultural and genre based barriers.”

How did The Stretch Music App Begin?

As a music student at the New Orleans Center of Creative Arts (NOCCA) and Berklee College of Music, Christian knew first-hand the existing library of “play-along” recordings were ill-equipped to sate the cravings of young musicians hoping to learn from their influencers through emulation. With the intention of releasing his next recording with an accompanying offering students could play along with, he sought out Darren Hoffman, the lead designer of the Tutti Player .

In February 2015, at a coffeehouse in uptown New Orleans, we met with Christian and his team to discuss building an interactive album with features based on the Tutti Music Player App. Christian’s goals for a stand-alone, audio interactive player of his next album were serendipitously in line with our vision for our core technology, and Christian’s multilayered music proved to be the perfect content for this immersive listening and practicing experience. Thus, the STRETCH MUSIC APP was born.
