    a reservoir for the third ear
    A World Of Sound In memory of David S Ware. A preoccupation with nothing less than humanity's place in the cosmos. Pure Music from a Planetary Unknown. 'Musically to go so deep that you touch upon those Universal forces.'

    Rich Hall's Inventing The Indian Redressing the balance of misrepresentation. Questioning the screen image of execrable Hollywood films. A search for the real Indian. A different perspective on the people who set foot on American soil first.

    What The Future Sounded Like
    From Dr Who to the Dark Side of the Moon, the members of the Electronic Music Studios used pioneering technology and ideas to create a radical new soundscape for the 20th century. Post-war Britain rebuilt itself on a wave of scientific and industrial breakthroughs that culminated in the cultural revolution of the 1960’s. It was a period of sweeping change and experimentation where art and culture participated in and reflected the wider social changes. In this atmosphere was born the Electronic Music Studios (EMS), a radical group of avant-garde electronic musicians who utilized technology and experimentation to compose a futuristic electronic sound-scape for the New Britain.

    Breaking Bad begins penultimate season
    Breaking Bad returned last evening for it's fifth and final season, sort of. The crew and cast has finished filming 16 episodes. 8 of which will air this year and 8 the next. I think it's great that writer and creator Vince Gilligan is pulling the plug at the story-line's logical ending rather than extending it out into banality for commercial reasons alone. While AMC touts this show as the greatest dramatic series ever on television, a fact that I certainly wouldn't agree with, I still find it hard to point to any TV show with better acting. The production values are certainly some of the best I have ever seen. Technically, this series is state-of-the art. Nobody does it better. In fact, last night's show had it's own website where viewers could interact with polls and short videos and such. It's ridiculous with the problems facing humanity that a fiction TV program breaks new ground with this technology while pressing issues remain untackled with this kind of tool! Last night's episode showed that Mike is angry that Walt killed his boss Gustavo. Ed survived his accidental fall while being shaken down by Saul's "A" team for the IRS payment because of Skyler's fears. Saul wants out of his professional relationship with Walt, who in turn asserts his passive-aggressive nature. Walt and Jesse use a giant magnet to erase Gustavo's laptop in the evidence lock-up because it contains surveillance footage of them in the super-lab, which is now a smoking crater. Unfortunately, this action reveals another clue from Gustavo's personal effects. On we go. There isn't another TV program I care about or watch on a regular basis. I'm not hopeful I'll ever find one as compelling, contemporary and consistently good as Breaking Bad.

    as previously noted more than once, you are free to post your political views in the current events topic and such topics as may be started in the future where they are explicitly relevant (as, in this case, should there ever be an Eric Holder topic). This, however, is the TV topic, with no relevant connection whatever. Any future such posts here or in other inappropriate threads will be summarily deleted. Thanks. Mod hat off.

    Not that it is relevant to this thread
    But I think you know what happened to Terry, Dewlover. He was shot by a weapon that was from the US government's "Fast & Furious" operation that was badly bungled (see my post in the Trouble Ahead, Trouble Behind thread). I haven't read comments by any Deadheads who feel "Brian Terrys' parents have no right to know exactly what happened to their son". Could you please point out some evidence for that assertion? We know where the guns came from. It wasn't a plot to kill Bill Terry. I think the bad guys have access to guns without the US Government's help. Why don't you admit that you just hate Obama and are chewing on this particular bone because it is an election year and this administration has been so free of scandal this is the only thing you have to go on? Nobody on this site cares about this, Dewlover. Nobody. Get help for your hate before it's too late! There are many good, free programs available to help with this tendency.

    So Sad...
    I've been following this story about the murder of Brian Terry and find it sickening that Holder thinks it's more important to keep his secrets, save face and cover up the facts of the case than it is to be open and transparent and release the documents requested by the Congressional investigative team...I wonder why the incredibly embarrasing "Deadheads for Oblamer" agree that Brian Terrys' parents have no right to know exactly what happened to their son...???

DJ Food - O Is For Orange '"O Is For Orange" is the sound of weathered tape saturation, detuned analogue synthesisers, vinyl crackle and machine hum. It’s also the look of unfocused, flickering lenses, mirror image filters and blurry grain embedded into film. Unofficial fan films sit alongside experimental animation, public information shorts and even the odd official video. Material that Boards of Canada took inspiration from blends with their own work as well as many that they inspired.'

Tomeka Reid Artists Respond: Tomeka Reid Performs "Airs for Eliza" Chicago-based cellist and composer Tomeka Reid performs an intimate recital (July 7, 2016) in response to Fo Wilson’s installation, Eliza’s Peculiar Cabinet of Curiosities. In this performance, Reid expertly combines composed vignettes and spontaneous improvisations for a highly personal reaction to Wilson's work. Reid is seated on the porch of Eliza’s Peculiar Cabinet of Curiosities, a full-scale structure on the grounds of the Lynden Sculpture Garden (on view June 6 through October 30, 2016, and seasonally thereafter). The cabinet is both wunderkammer and slave cabin; it imagines what a 19th-century woman of African descent might have collected, catalogued and stowed in her living quarters. Informed by historical research, Eliza expresses a hopeful African American past, present, and future through a collection of found and original objects. Eliza's Peculiar Cabinet of Curiosities is a collaboration with the Chipstone Foundation. Reid's recital is part of a series of programs sponsored by Chipstone and the Lynden Sculpture Garden, in which four artists/collectives were commissioned to respond to the installation. For more information on visiting Eliza's Peculiar Cabinet of Curiosities, see the Lynden Sculpture Garden website here: http://www.lyndensculpturegarden.org/exhibitions/fo-wilson-elizas-pecul…

Larry Roland Vision Festival 20 | Larry Roland // Poet VISION FESTIVAL 20: His spoken word pays homage to the strength and beauty of his ancestors from whom he has gained knowledge, wisdom, pride, and understanding. Through the use of the African philosophy “Sankofa”, his poetry has made the connection between the past, and present, in order to hypothesize the direction of the future. His spoken word is the “Voice” for the man on the street who does not have a voice. Cameras David Appel Don Mount Michael Lucio Sternbach Adam Worth Edit by MLS Sound by Stephen Schmidt

Lisa Mezzacappa ORGANELLE ORGANELLE is a “set" of compositions, inspired by diverse scientific processes – some enormous and unfathomable, others impossibly microscopic – that form a whole through the insights and explorations of master improvisers. The modular work draws its musical ideas from the different ways that the human body, the natural world, and the cosmos mark and “experience” the passing of time. The notes, rhythms, musical relationships, melodies, and structures in each movement of ORGANELLE are connected to theories of cell biology, astrophysics, paleontology, zoology, or neuroscience, exploring these otherwise-imperceptible phenomena through sound. The first iteration of ORGANELLE premiered in Europe in spring of 2016, with musicians in Köln, DE; Naples and Rome, IT; and back at home that fall, in Berkeley, CA at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. In each presentation, the music is revised, re-imagined, and expanded to embrace a new set of musical personalities and a different performance context. New movements will be added, and old ones discarded or re-worked, to suit different configurations of musicians as the work continues to develop in the coming years. ORGANELLE also reflects my fascination with the challenges of notating musical ideas for improvisers to play (with), which for me has an interesting parallel with the ways science tries to visually represent complex, multi-dimensional systems and processes with flow charts and graphs and diagrams. The practical concern of wanting this score to be playable by any kind of improviser - a laptop electronic musician, an experimental koto player, a guitarist with nontraditional tunings - meant I often needed to find ways of visually representing musical ideas and relationships that were not confined to the traditional music staff. Many of these new graphic notations ended up having poetic connections to the scientific diagrams I was discovering in researching the content for the piece.
