D∆WN: 'Not Above That' VR Experience. Everyone Is Dirty. Biography & History. Up to the mid-2000s, guitarist Nels Cline was probably best known for his work in the group Quartet Music (with brother Alex Cline, bassist Eric Von Essen, and violinist Jeff Gauthier) as well as other projects in the jazz, rock, and avant-garde idioms, and for his general involvement in the West Coast's improvisation community.

Biography & History

However, since 2004, Cline has been a member of Wilco, which has opened up a much larger audience for the guitarist than is typical for even the most well-known of avant jazzers and creative improvisers. Born in Los Angeles in 1956, Cline began playing guitar around the age of 12, when his twin brother Alex began learning the drums. Songs, Reviews, Credits. On their debut full-length, New York-based quartet Turnip King play a splashy, energetic blend of caffeine-rush indie pop and sprawling psychedelic jams.

As contradictory as that sounds, somehow they manage to make it work. Almost all of the album's songs stretch past five minutes, but it rarely seems like they're aimlessly rambling. The group have a wonderfully fluid, reverb-heavy guitar sound that they expertly control from a gentle drizzle to a vast flood, yet it seems to wash rather than drown.

Kevin Puts: Symphony No. 2; Flute Concerto; River's Rush - Adam Walker,Marin Alsop,Peabody Symphony Orchestra. For this 2016 Naxos release, Marin Alsop and the Peabody Symphony Orchestra present three world-premiere recordings of works by Kevin Puts, one of the most significant contemporary American composers and winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2012.

Kevin Puts: Symphony No. 2; Flute Concerto; River's Rush - Adam Walker,Marin Alsop,Peabody Symphony Orchestra

The Symphony No. 2 (2002), River's Rush (2004), and the Flute Concerto (2013, revised 2014) reveal Puts as a master of orchestral sonorities and a tone poet of moods, which range from the ecstatic to the elegiac. The Symphony No. 2 is a powerful evocation of 9/11, and Puts creates an atmosphere of tragedy that shifts from the innocent tonal ululations of the opening to a violent cataclysm, which then resolves in a meditative section that nevertheless ends with uncertainty. River's Rush, ostensibly inspired by the Mississippi River, is a perpetuum mobile for orchestra that depicts the water's raging currents in rapid successions of short motives.

Atomin Paluu [A Film Soundtrack] - Pan Sonic. Influential Finnish experimental electronic duo Pan Sonic (Mika Vainio and Ilpo Väisänen) officially disbanded at the end of 2009, but several recordings from their final years have surfaced since then.

Atomin Paluu [A Film Soundtrack] - Pan Sonic

This album, recorded between 2005 and 2011 and edited by Vainio in 2015, makes up the soundtrack for Atomin Paluu, a Finnish documentary about the construction of the first nuclear power plant since the 1986 Chernobyl meltdown. The duo integrate field recordings from the building site with their usual cold, stark electronics. Igor Stravinsky: Apollo Musagete; Concerto in D; Pulcinella - Joshua Weilerstein,Orchestre De Chambre De Lausanne,Lausanne Chamber Orchestra.

Joshua Weilerstein's 2016 release on MDG Gold is an extraordinary recording debut, showcasing his brilliance as a conductor and his strong aptitude for the music of Igor Stravinsky.

Igor Stravinsky: Apollo Musagete; Concerto in D; Pulcinella - Joshua Weilerstein,Orchestre De Chambre De Lausanne,Lausanne Chamber Orchestra

He leads the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne in stimulating performances of the Pulcinella Suite, the ballet Apollon musagète, and the Concerto in D for string orchestra (also known as the Basel Concerto), all neoclassical works that benefit from the musicians' sharp clarity and virtuosity. The playing is so vibrant and colorful in Pulcinella, one wishes that Weilerstein and the orchestra had performed the entire ballet and given it the same attention to detail and sonic richness.

Even so, this performance is a treat, as are the sparkling readings of Apollon musgète and the Concerto. HOME - Official Mr Strange. Music — Lady Lamb.

Hear Classical Music Composed by Friedrich Nietzsche: 43 Original Tracks. A philosopher perhaps more widely known for his prodigious mustache than for the varieties of his thought, Friedrich Nietzsche often seems to be misread more than read.

Hear Classical Music Composed by Friedrich Nietzsche: 43 Original Tracks

Even someone like Michel Foucault could gloss over a crucial fact about Nietzsche’s body of work: Foucault remarked in an unpublished interview that Nietzsche’s “wonderful ideas” were “used by the Nazi Party.” But that use, he neglected to mention, came about through a scheme hatched by Nietzsche’s sister, after his mental collapse and death, to edit, change, and otherwise manipulate the thinker’s work in a way The Telegraph deemed “criminal.” Foucault may not have known the full context, but Nietzsche had about as much sympathy for fascism as he did for Christianity–both reasons for his break with composer Richard Wagner.

What Nietzsche loved most was music. Music Release: Laconicism · Earslap. 29 Nov 2009 Laconicism is a collection of procedural and interactive sound compositions.
