eighth blackbird

American composer Benjamin Broening (b. 1967) drew inspiration for the eight haunting pieces on this disc from the natural world in Estonia. The combinations of acoustical instruments and electronics are so deftly achieved that textures come and go with surprising enchantment and tension. The disc’s title comes from the virtuosic flute solo that evokes a conflicted environment. Eighth blackbird, the chamber ensemble founded at Oberlin College, play Broening’s collection to the expressive skies.

In 1863 Martine de Béhague’s grandmother bought the site where the Romanian Embassy now stands. She commissioned Gabriel Hippolyte Alexandre Destailleur (1822-1893), the architect who restored the châteaux of Courances and Vaux-le-Vicomte, to build a Louis XV-style town house that would be an appropriate setting for her collection of 18th-century artefacts she planned to house there. The architect was internationally renowned, had connections with the Imperial family and had worked for the Rothschilds in Vienna among others.

The mélodies of Benjamin Godard (1849-1895) are little-known, and yet, Godard was one of the most prolific composers in the genre. Focusing on opera after the success of his dramatic symphony Le Tasse in 1878, Godard composed several lyric works that overshadowed his 162 published songs. Today, they remain one of the most interesting parts of his catalogue. The pieces selected here by Tassis Christoyannis and Jeff Cohen, most of them recorded for the first time, illustrate the composer's literary sensibilities.

Walter Benjamin - Aura e choc. Saggi sulla teoria dei media
Italian | 2012 | 465 pages | ISBN: 8806208349 | EPUB | 3,9 MB

"Aura e choc" raccoglie in un unico volume i principali studi dedicati da Walter Benjamin al complesso ambito della teoria dei media, tra cui il saggio "L'opera d'arte nell'epoca della sua riproducibilità tecnica", qui presentato nella versione del 1935-36. Chiave di volta di questa teoria, che Benjamin sviluppa dai primi scritti degli anni '10 fino agli ultimi frammenti del libro sui "passages" di Parigi, è l'idea secondo cui va considerato come "medium" tutto ciò che è in grado di ridefinire le coordinate della percezione, dei modi di vedere e di sentire, e più in generale dell'esperienza. Sulla base di tale presupposto Benjamin discute media moderni come la fotografia e il cinema, la radio e il telefono, il libro e il giornale, ma anche le forme espressive della lingua, della linea e del colore, strumenti ottici come la camera obscura e la lanterna magica, i sistemi di illuminazione urbana e l'architettura di vetro, per arrivare infine agli stati di alterazione percettiva indotti dal sogno e dall'hashish..
