♥ Book Title : 57 octaves below the middle C buzzed by the bee
☯ Full Synopsis : "Fiction. Chris Leo's second novel with drawings by Marcellus Hall, 57 OCTAVES BELOW THE MIDDLE C is a jaunty exploration of the romance of paradox and, inextricably converse, the paradox of romance. New York City tour guide Steven Schecker is on a smoke break with fellow tour guides debating the etymologies, chronologies, and mysteries of everything as it relates to New York City when he spots his girlfriend's mother across the street and the two take off by foot and by tour bus on a day around the city in which the city is presented as a metaphor for his girlfriend/her daughter and her daughter/his girlfriend functions as a metaphor for the city and the two continue to spiral together and swap polarities until cocktail hour is a must. Marcellus Hall (of The New Yorker, The New York Times) has offered forty illustrations throughout the book as integral vignettes alongside the script."Article| Chris Leo| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Almanac
☯ Full Synopsis : "While the poems in Steve Straight’'s new collection lead the reader "into the dark forest of memory / or onto the carnival ride of hypothesis, / or even right off the cliff of surprise," they maintain a sure course through the din and distraction of modern life. Bits of news from the natural sciences, chance encounters, and even the convicted felon and crafting queen Martha Stewart all fall under Straight’s observant eye. The result is a collection of conversational poems that lend a sense of wonder to the commonplace. Billy Collins, former poet laureate of the United States, says, "Every one of the poems in The Almanac achieves that rare thing in the streets of contemporary poetry: they are just plain interesting.""Article| Steve Straight| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Science of Musical Sound
☯ Full Synopsis : "This textbook is a product of William Bennett’s work in developing and teaching a course on the physics of music at Yale University to a diverse audience of musicians and science students in the same class. The book is a culmination of over a decade of teaching the course and weaves together historical descriptions of the physical phenomena with the author’s clear interpretations of the most important aspects of the science of music and musical instruments. Many of the historical examples are not found in any other textbook available on the market. As the co-inventor of the Helium-Neon laser, Prof. Bennett’s knowledge of physics was world-class. As a professor at one of the most prestigious liberal-arts universities in the world, his appreciation for culture and humanities shines through. The book covers the basics of oscillations, waves and the analysis techniques necessary for understanding how musical instruments work. All types of stringed instruments, pipe organs, and the human voice are covered in this volume. A second volume covers the remaining families of musical instruments as well as selected other topics. Readers without a background in acoustics will enjoy learning the physics of the Science of Musical Sound from a preeminent scientist of the 20th century. Those well versed in acoustics will discover wonderful illustrations and photographs depicting familiar concepts in new and enlightening ways."Article| William Ralph Bennett Jr.| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Summoned to Lead
☯ Full Synopsis : "Leadership Re-VisionedCast a vision, set a strategy, rally the troops, and take the hill—you don’t need another book to rehash the well-worn principles of modern leadership. But if you’re looking for something different, something that . . . approaches leadership as an art as well as a scienceinspires hope and expectation in those of us who aren’t born leaderschallenges those with leadership roles to explore new possibilities. . . then Leonard Sweet wants to help you discover a very different kind of leadership vision. It’s one you hear if your ears are open, and it could summon you at any time. When you respond, the puzzle pieces of who you are will fit together into a leader others follow because you’ve answered a call, not trained for a position. “The church has it all wrong. It is trying to train leaders. Instead, it ought to train everyone to listen and to develop their own soundtrack.”Leaders don’t see a vision, says Sweet, they hear one. “Sound becomes sight. Leaders hear life.”For a sonogram of “acoustic leadership,” Sweet takes us inside the incredible account of Sir Ernest Shackleton, the celebrated polar explorer who led his entire crew of twenty-seven from disaster in the Antarctic to safety. Called “the greatest leader that ever came on God’s earth, bar none,” Shackleton objectifies the goals of Sweet’s own exploration in search of wisdom for today and tomorrow’s truly compelling, voice-activated leaders.Right now, you may be leading many people or just yourself. But who knows what tomorrow—or a minute from now—will call forth in you. Are your ears open?"Article| Leonard Sweet| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Science Fiction America
☯ Full Synopsis : "From the inception of the science fiction film, writers, directors, producers, and actors have understood that the genre lends itself to a level of social commentary not available in other formats. Viewers find it easier to accept explorations of such issues as domestic violence, war, xenophobia, faith, identity, racism, and other difficult topics when the protagonists exist in future times or other worlds that are only vaguely similar to our own. The 22 original essays in this collection examine how the issues in particular science fiction films--from 1930's High Treason to 1999's The Iron Giant--reflect and comment on the prevailing issues of their time. The 16 writers (including such noted contributors as Ted Okuda, Gary Don Rhodes, Bryan Senn, John Soister and Ken Weiss) provide insight on how the genre's wistful daydreaming, forthcoming wonders, and nightmarish scenarios are often grounded in the grimmer realities of the human condition. Films covered include It Came from Outer Space, Godzilla, The 27th Day, Alien and Starship Troopers, plus television's The Adventures of Superman, the Flash Gordon serials, and vintage space cartoons by Fleischer."Article| David J. Hogan| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Banks Violette
☯ Full Synopsis : "Banks Violette (b. 1973) has been called the "Grown-Up Goth." Whitney Museum of American Art curator Chrissie Isles, at the time of the 2004 Whitney Biennial, described his work as embodying "the dark side of the heavy-metal American dream." This book, which accompanies an exhibition at the Whitney, presents a new multi-media sculptural installation by Violette that, with a musical component, explores the central concerns of his work in a complete, immersive environment. This new work, "Untitled," revolves around an idea of complicity between the artist, his collaborator the Black Metal musician Snorre Ruch, and the audience interacting with the piece. Cast in salt, the material surface of the piece is alternately glittery and matte, suggesting both the living and the dead. Recorded in Dolby surround sound and activated by motion detectors, the music becomes a theatrical element in orienting the viewer in the installation, swelling louder according to proximity."Article| Shamim Momin| Statement ..."
