♥ Book Title : The Garland Handbook of African Music
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Garland Handbook of African Music is comprised of essays from The Garland Encyclopedia of World Music: Volume 1, Africa, (1997). Revised and updated, the essays offer detailed, regional studies of the different musical cultures of Africa and examine the ways in which music helps to define the identity of this particular area. Part One provides an in-depth introduction to Africa. Part Two focuses on issues and processes, such as notation and oral tradition, dance in communal life, and intellectual property. Part Three focuses on the different regions, countries, and cultures of Africa with selected regional case studies. The second edition has been expanded to include exciting new scholarship that has been conducted since the first edition was published. Questions for Critical Thinking at the end of each major section guide and focus attention on what musical and cultural issues arise when one studies the music of Africa -- issues that might not occur in the study of other musics of the world. An accompanying audio compact disc offers musical examples of some of the music of Africa."Article| Professor at Folklore Institute and African Studies and Adjunct Professor School of Music Ruth M Stone| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : A Sense-of-Wonderful Century
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book gathers together many of the illuminating essays on science fiction and fantasy film penned by a major critic in the SF field. The pieces are roughly organized in the chronological order of when the movies and television programs being discussed first appeared, with essays providing more general overviews clustered near the beginning and end of the volume, to provide the overall aura of a historical survey. Although this book does not pretend to provide a comprehensive history of science fiction and fantasy films, it does intermingle analyses of films and TV programs with some discussions of related plays, novels, stories, and comic books, particularly in the essays on This Island Earth and 2001: A Space Odyssey and its sequels. Inciteful, entertaining, and full of intelligent and witty observations about science fiction and its sometimes curious relationship with the visual media, these essays will both delight and entertain critics, fans, and viewers alike."Article| Gary Westfahl| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Perilous Memories
☯ Full Synopsis : "Perilous Memories makes a groundbreaking and critical intervention into debates about war memory in the Asia-Pacific region. Arguing that much is lost or erased when the Asia-Pacific War(s) are reduced to the 1941–1945 war between Japan and the United States, this collection challenges mainstream memories of the Second World War in favor of what were actually multiple, widespread conflicts. The contributors recuperate marginalized or silenced memories of wars throughout the region—not only in Japan and the United States but also in China, Southeast Asia, the Pacific Islands, Okinawa, Taiwan, and Korea. Firmly based on the insight that memory is always mediated and that the past is not a stable object, the volume demonstrates that we can intervene positively yet critically in the recovery and reinterpretation of events and experiences that have been pushed to the peripheries of the past. The contributors—an international list of anthropologists, cultural critics, historians, literary scholars, and activists—show how both dominant and subjugated memories have emerged out of entanglements with such forces as nationalism, imperialism, colonialism, racism, and sexism. They consider both how the past is remembered and also what the consequences may be of privileging one set of memories over others. Specific objects of study range from photographs, animation, songs, and films to military occupations and attacks, minorities in wartime, “comfort women,” commemorative events, and postwar activism in pursuing redress and reparations. Perilous Memories is a model for war memory intervention and will be of interest to historians and other scholars and activists engaged with collective memory, colonial studies, U.S. and Asian history, and cultural studies.

♥ Book Title : Gould and variations
☯ Full Synopsis : "The work of Glenn Gould employs a range of expressive techniques that combine sounds, words and images without ever compromising the unity and logic of the aesthetic vision they reflect. Nevertheless, it is his interpretive brilliance as a pianist that continues to inspire emotion and awe. The genius of Glenn Gould lies in the sounds he created. With Gould, music becomes a language – a language of such rigour, coherence and clarity that all who hear it are able to discern its principal components. Each sound is articulated and perceived distinctly as part of a melodic and harmonic sequence that imbues it with meaning. The structure of each musical phrase is integrated into the work as a whole according to a rhythm and a tempo that continually reinforce the central discourse. Gould compared his approach to that of a composer analyzing and dissecting his own work. As an interpreter, he did not hesitate to define himself as a “recording artist” dedicated to the “reconstruction” of that same work.The CD on which it is presented to the listener is thus the result of a lengthy process: take after take of the same phrases, the same ornaments – marginally different each time – until the point when the whole piece precisely mirrored the idea already formulated in his mind. This endless editing and splicing of the audio tape can be likened to the craft of the filmmaker. As well as broadening the possibilities of his art through the application of new technologies, Gould helped revolutionize the relations between composer, work and listener, requiring that the latter be not only receptive but also creative. He always conceived of a listener with access to the most sophisticated equipment, whom he could lead straight to the essence – discovery of the work – of his own quest for beauty and ecstasy. S. Bach and his contrapuntal composition were his main source of inspiration. “I really can’t think of any other music which is so all-encompassing, which moves me so deeply and so consistently, and which, to use a rather imprecise word, is valuable beyond all of its skill and brilliance for something more meaningful than that – its humanity.”Gould’s career was framed by one of Bach’s most fascinating compositions, the Goldberg Variations. The work is concerned with balance, symmetry, harmonic coherence and, according to baroque principles, diversity and contrast. Transcending his mathematical rigour, the composer operates highly imaginatively, using a variety of genres, writing techniques and expressive means. Bach succeeds in transforming his basic musical material – an aria – without altering the general structure of the work. Owing to its harmonic form, the aria enables the listener to perceive the wide diversity of the sound landscape that is revealed as the work unfolds. The interpreter can play with complete freedom in the garden created by the composer: “It is, in short, music which observes neither end nor beginning, music with neither real climax nor real resolution.”"Article| Ghyslaine Guertin| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Beyond Casablanca
☯ Full Synopsis : "In Beyond Casablanca, Kevin Dwyer explores the problems of creativity in the Arab and African world, focusing on Moroccan cinema and one of its key figures, filmmaker M. A. Tazi. Dwyer develops three themes simultaneously: the filmmaker's career and films; filmmaking in postcolonial Morocco; and the relationship between Moroccan cinema, Third World and Arab cinema, and the global film industry. This compelling discussion of Moroccan cinema is founded upon decades of anthropological research in Morocco, most recently on the Moroccan film sector and the global film industry, and exhibits a sensitivity to the cultural, political, social, and economic context of creative activity. The book centers on a series of interviews conducted with Tazi, whose career provides a rich commentary on the world of Moroccan cinema and on Moroccan cinema in the world. The interviews are framed, variously, by presentations of Moroccan history, society, and culture; the role of foreign filmmakers in Morocco; thematic discussions of cinematic issues (such as narrative techniques, the use of symbols, film as an expression of identity, and problems of censorship); and the global context of Third World filmmaking."Article| Mohamed Abderrahman Tazi| Statement ..."
