In this hour, Charles Limb is a surgeon and musician who researches the way creativity works in the brain. He puts jazz musicians inside an fMRI to find out what the brain does during musical improvisation. Bass player Mike Pope is one of his subjects. Anne Strainchamps talks with them about the music and the science. Next, creativity is hard-wired in the human brain, but we could all learn to be more creative. Harvard psychologist Shelley Carson's research has identified seven different modes of creative thinking. She tells Anne Strainchamps how we can all learn to amplify our own creative abilities.Then, imagine beginning your life's work at age 72. In the 1770's, Mary Delaney invented the medium we now call collage. Her collection of botanically-correct floral collages is today housed in the British Museum. Poet Molly Peacock fell in love with the work and the artist and has written a meditation on both and on late-life creativity.Finally, cosmologist Brian Swimme and Religion scholar Mary Evelyn Tucker tell the story of the origins of the universe, from the Big Bang to the present moment.

Warme elektronische Stücke mit groovenden Basslines, voller Synthesizer, Gitarren-Echos, Scratches, Samples, Stimm-Samples und Kalimbas. Just as magnified record grooves reveal dust constellations and lunar landscapes, so too does Godblesscomputers third album. Solchi is a deep search into previous moments in Lorenzo Nada s lifetime, influenced by the presence and power of music. His process began with the recovery of some old cassettes, mixtapes nearly forgotten, audio recording of voices from his childhood, and lots of dusty jazz, soul, and hip-hop records. As the starting point of this travel merge with its end, past and present combine to form GBC s current sound. Warm electronic production rooted by grooving bass lines form the core of a kaleidoscope of sixteen tracks, colored by synthesizers, guitar echoes, scratches, samples, fading voices and kalimba. The album is a collection of sixteen stories, sixteen soundscapes, each of them GBC s tribute to the path taken thus far, an homage to his love for music. The recording and studio work took place over a year, with the adding and subtracting of many elements. For this project, GBC invited several musicians into his home studio, both old friends and new. They helped to recreate the sounds of the original recovered recording, as well as add fresh ideas to the project. TRACKS: A1. Brothers A2. How About U (feat. Davide Shorty) A3. Just Slow Down A4.

Die Band, die ihre Art von langsamer, schwerer und kluger Musik als Stonegaze bezeichnet. Repress der EP von 2011,nnDie Band, die ihre Art von langsamer, schwerer und kluger Musik als Stonegaze bezeichnet. Repress der 2xLP von 2011. Mexican Summer present As High As The Highest Heavens And From The Center To The Circumference Of The Earth by True Widow due for release on the 13th May 2016. Here is a band that has figured out how to play music that is traditionally recognized as heavy and slow, on traditional rock instruments, in a way that few have been able to accomplish: a melancholy, meditative approach to songwriting and soundscape that draws you in. They figured this out in the space of one album a self-titled debut from 2008. On As High As the Highest Heavens, they refine the work even further. Big guitar, bigger drums and the biggest bass effortlessly recreate the unending skies of prairie America, where storms blow across with fury, horizons are unencumbered by the choke of skyscrapers and electric light, and the atmosphere pushes you down. A rumbling backdrop of distortion churns away, both behind and within True Widow's plaintive song structures, but never overpowers it. Across a 50-minute runtime, the nine songs here range from excavated alt-rock anthems (Night Witches, Skull Eyes ) to methodical epics like Boaz and Blooden Horse, to triumphant bulldozers of sound like NH which splits the difference between dirge and hymn, the instruments staring into the ground while D.H. and Nikki's voices ascend to the clouds. TRACKS: 1. Jakyl 2. Blooden Horse 3. NH 4. Sku ll Eyes 5. Wither 6. Boaz 7. Night Witches 8. Interlude 9. Doomseer 10. Bathyscaphe (Bonus Track) 11. For Grace (Bonus Track) 12. SYB (Bonus Track)

Shoegazer - Gitarren, Ambient-Drones, Drummaschinen, Synthie-Schlieren, atmosphärisch, deep. On the Echoing Green is an elegant work of lush, shimmering sound, rendered with a singular touch by eternal electric romantic Jefre Cantu-Ledesma. In contrast to the haze and hermetic process of previous albums, Green was conceived as a deliberate experiment in clarity and collaboration: I was interested in trying to bring out more overt pop elements, to let them come to the front and be present. I also have more trust now in letting things happen trusting other people s musicianship, and being open to people s ideas. Eventually, things emerge. What emerged from this bond are eight rapturous and richly melodic slow dives of swirling guitar, bass, synthesizer, piano, and drum machines, dramatically accented in places by heavenly arcs of voice courtesy of Argentinian singer-songwriter Sobrenadar. Cantu-Ledesma encouraged chemistry and intuition in the studio by beginning the album without any demos for reference, he and his collaborators pursued patterns and hypnotic textures across long-form improvisations until gradually songs began to take shape. This is music of growth and grandeur, of ascent and exploration, played with purpose and passion by a craftsman in tune with the beauty of sound and the harmony of light. In his words: This album feels like spring things coming alive, blooming, emerging from winter. TRACKS: 1. In A Copse 2. A Song Of Summer 3. Echoing Green 4. The Faun 5. Tenderness 6. Vulgar Latin 7.

Reissue des gesuchten Cool Jazz / Bebop-Meisterwerks des Trios um Jazzpianist Ryo Fukui aus dem Jahre 1976. We Release Jazz (WRWTFWW Records new sister-label) is proud to present its first release, the official reissue of Ryo Fukuis highly sought-after masterpiece Scenery (1976), sourced from the original masters and available on limited edition 180g vinyl mastered at half speed for audiophile sound and on digipack CD. Unquestionably one of the most important Japanese jazz albums ever recorded, Scenery reveals Ryo Fukui as a miraculously brilliant self-taught pianist fusing modal, bop, andcool jazz influences for a very personal, dexterous and game-changing take on classic standards made famous by Bing Crosby and John Coltrane among others. From "It Could Happen To You" and its serene and calm intro which magically flows into a jubilant and upbeat piece, to the out-of-this-world piano solo of "Early Summer", or the incredible teamwork of "Autumn Leaves" where Fukui leads Satoshi Denpo (bass) and Yoshinori Fukui (drums) into groove heaven, every single note on the album oozes precision, confidence and flair and every single section slides seamlessly into one another, creating a supreme and elegant blend of jazz. Often compared to McCoy Tyner or Bill Evans, Ryo Fukui was a genius in his own right, a true master of his craft whose perfectionism gave birth to some of the greatest music ever recorded. Scenery is his magnum opus and an absolute must-have. The Hokkaido wizard-pianist followed Scenery with the soulful gem Mellow Dream (also available on We Release Jazz) in 1977. He then focused on improving his live skills, often performing at Sapporos Slowboat Jazz Club (which he co-founded with his wife Yasuko Fukui) and releasing 2 live albums. Ryo Fukui sadly passed away in March 2016, leaving behind a legacy of works that is sure to captivate jazz lovers for generations to come.
(LP) Neue Band auf dem New Yorker Hipster-Label Mexican Summer. Pill kombinieren den Geist des Punk im NYC der 80er und Ideen aus Free Jazz und No Wave.nnNeue Band auf dem New Yorker Hipster-Label Mexican Summer. Pill kombinieren den Geist des Punk im NYC der 80er und Ideen aus Free Jazz und No Wave. Mexican Summer present Convenience by Pill due for release on the 19th august 2016. Convenience skids like a garbage truck with no brakes, barreling through passages of guitar chording bent at the wrong angles and ring-modded riffs aligning with Benjamin Jaffe's expressive sax before splitting apart into chaos. Veronica Torres assumes double-duty between vocals and bass, while Jon Campolo plays three instruments in the live setting and Andrew Spaulding four, including circuit-bent noise rigs of their own invention. Veronica's words are delivered with the speed and frenzy of someone with their life on the line, but she's also able to slow things down in a gesture of dominance, confidence, and trust. This band is wise enough to know that safety is fleeting, so they take their digs when and where they can. Given Pill's backgrounds, their music advances a notion of what the punk spirit of NYC might be: the capture and distillation of the energy and friction that comes from living amongst so many people in such a confined space. The idea seeds in free jazz and improvisation, reached adolescence in galleries and loft spaces in the '70s, found politics in squats and independent spaces, and it grows stronger the more these several sensibilities are practiced ands stewed. Call them No wave, post-punk, noise, they are immune, content to head off in a direction of their own design. TRACKS: 1. 60 Sec. 2. Which Is True? 3. My Rights 4. Fetish Queen 5. Dead Boys 6. J-E-N-O-V-A 7. 100% Cute 8. Sex With Santa 9. Speaking Up 10. Vagabond 11. Love & Other Liquids 12. Medicine
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Radio Boogie is a second album by the progressive bluegrass band Hot Rize. Progressive bluegrass is one of two major subgenres of bluegrass music. It is also known as newgrass, a term attributed to New Grass Revival member Ebo Walker. Musicians and bands John Hartford, New Grass Revival, J.D. Crowe and the New South, The Dillards, Boone Creek, Country Gazette, and the Seldom Scene pioneered innovations in the genre. Some groups began using electric instruments and importing songs from other genres, particularly rock & roll. Progressive bluegrass became popular in the late 1960s and 1970s, but it can be traced back to the banjo and bass duets that Earl Scruggs played even in the earliest days of the Foggy Mountain Boys. The four key distinguishing elements of progressive bluegrass are instrumentation, frequently including electric instruments, drums, piano, and more, songs imported or styles imitated from other musical genres like jazz, rock and others, non-traditional chord progressions, and lengthy "jam band"-style improvisation. However, not all these elements are always present in progressive bluegrass.
