Alex Ross’s award-winning international best seller, The Rest Is Noise, has become a contemporary classic, establishing him as one of our most popular and acclaimed cultural historians. Listen to This, which takes its title from a beloved 2004 essay in which Ross described his late-blooming discovery of pop music, showcases the best of Ross’s writing from more than a decade at The New Yorker. These pieces, dedicated to classical and popular artists alike, are at once erudite and lively. In a previously unpublished essay, Ross brilliantly retells hundreds of years of music history - from Renaissance dances to Led Zeppelin - through a few iconic bass lines of celebration and lament. He vibrantly sketches canonical composers such as Schubert, Verdi, and Brahms; gives us in-depth interviews with modern pop masters, such as Björk and Radiohead; and introduces us to music students at a Newark high school and to indie-rock hipsters in Beijing. Whether his subject is Mozart or Bob Dylan, Ross shows how music expresses the full complexity of the human condition. Witty, passionate, and brimming with insight, Listen to This teaches us how to listen. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alex Ross.

Kid Centrifuge is a rock band with dreams no bigger than other rock bands: ho-hum, tour and get signed and be famous and change the universe. Alas, unlike their rock-music forebears, our heroes live in a world that has largely moved on to techno, dance and pop. Yes, the music industry is still littered with double-crossers and backbiters, but now they're looking for DJs, and maybe guitar champions need no longer apply. So the kids tilt against the same old windmills musicians have battled forever, but with a suspicion that the same old animating dream - all you need is a guitar and a great song and you'll make a million bucks - is dead. That gives their grass-roots aspirations more than a little desperation, and bad decisions ensue. War On Sound gets inside its four featured musicians - Amanda, the singer; Sebastian, the guitarist; Kate, the drummer; and Scott, the bass player and angsty piloting force - the way Don DeLillo did in Great Jones Street and Roddy Doyle did in The Commitments. These talented kids wage war, blinkers in place, faith challenged...they have big success and big failure, and they keep playing. War on Sound is by turns hilarious and profound, and illuminates the contemporary music scene better than any recent novel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Harris.

The understanding of the musical techniques of composition cannot be reduced to a handbook of simplified rules. Music is complex and ever changing. It is the purpose of this book to trace the path of musical growth from the late Romantic period to the serial techniques of the contemporary composer. Through the detailed analysis of the musical characteristics that dominate a specific style of writing, a graduated plan is organized and presented here in the form of explanations and exercises. A new analytical method substitutes for the diatonic figured bass and makes exercises and the analysis of non-diatonic literature more manageable. The explanations describing each technique are thorough. They are designed to help the teacher and the student see the many extenuating circumstances that affect a particular analytical decision. More important than a dogmatic decision on a particular key center or a root tone, for example, is the understanding of why such an underdeterminate condition may exist.

From Jesse Andrews, author of the New York Times best-selling Me and Earl and the Dying Girl and screenwriter of the Sundance award-winning motion picture of the same name, comes a groundbreaking young adult novel about music, love, friendship, and freedom as three young musicians follow a quest to escape the law long enough to play the amazing show they hope (but also doubt) they have in them. Inspired by the years he spent playing bass in a band himself, The Haters is Jesse Andrews' road trip adventure about a trio of jazz camp escapees who, against every realistic expectation, become a band. For Wes and his best friend, Corey, jazz camp turns out to be lame. It's pretty much all dudes talking in jazz voice. But then they jam with Ash, a charismatic girl with an unusual sound, and the three just click. It's three and a half hours of pure musical magic, and Ash makes a decision: They need to hit the road. Because the road, not summer camp, is where bands get good. Before Wes and Corey know it, they're in Ash's SUV heading south, and The Haters' Summer of Hate Tour has begun. In his second novel, Andrews again brings his brilliant and distinctive voice to YA, in the perfect book for music lovers, fans of The Commitments and High Fidelity, or anyone who has ever loved - and hated - a song or a band. This witty, funny coming-of-age novel is contemporary fiction at its best. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Crouch.

Mixed Blood is a contemporary flute music album, which was released in 1995 and its music has been played by great wooden flute player Jeff Ball. Ball was born in Rockville and used to love pop, instrumental, smooth jazz and soundtrack music. He was fascinated by harmonica in first place but later attended a powwow (a social gathering held by many Native Americans), where he found himself intrigued by Native American wood flute. Jeff Ball was mostly self-taught but received some basic training by a Chochtaw man named Wintamer. During his young age, he was inspired by R.Carlos Nakai and Douglas Spotted Eagle. After his debut, Ball was nominated numerous times for Native American Music Awards and won in 2001. Mixed Blood was his first disc distributed nationally and features bass and other instrumental music added by his brother Randy Ball. Jeff Ball published a book in 1994 “Trailhead of the American Indian Courting Flute”, which included a recording.

Die erste EP aus dem vierten Album enthält 4 Tracks mit dem Qualitäts-Siegel engineered, mixed and mastered by Steve Albini.nnDie erste EP aus dem vierten Album enthält 4 Tracks mit dem Qualitäts-Siegel engineered, mixed and mastered by Steve Albini. First ep from their fourth album Off the Map, H-Burns' Six Years contains 4 tracks labeled engineered, mixed and mastered by Steve Albini. And that means: these four extracts suggest a tight album and strong album (as the slogan hammered by Albini feature it, or fuck it), engraved in eight days, with five members (drums, guitars, keyboards , bass), without ever leaving the studio. But that does not tell the whole qualities of the record. After the success of We go way back and his recent collaboration with Chris Bailey of the legendary Australian band The Saints (Album Bailey / Burns), H-Burns continues to make their music evolve in a way less harsh, more ample. H-Burns dropped the plaid shirts. Now here's a great classy band who knows no borders. Off the Map evokes a world with maps and territories which are the cement of the lyrics in total symbiosis with the music: brass performed by the musicians who played on last Wilco's albums, a drummer who hits on a snare drum dating from the 30s, keyboard parts played on vintage instruments that sound as if they had not been practiced for years. Sometimes electric guitar sounds as storm like Crazy Horse used to do it. The voice is a bit broken but lucid, similar to Jason Molina, Will Oldham or Hamilton Leithauser from the Walkmen. A voice that sings as if it wanted something, as if she had lost the way. A voice that tells us we're always near to be off the map. H-Burns new album is also the first release of the label Vietnam, created by So Foot, the monthly soccer magazine that Vox Pop described as a punk magazine that speaks about soccer because it is the real world of contemporary pop. Why did they start a label? Because what really matters is the trip. With or without a map. TRACKS: 1. SIX YEARS 2. APPROACHING 3. MIDWEST 4. CHASE YOU DOWN THE OPEN ROAD
