Funky Soul Playlist Upload FireMorph Loading... Working... ► Play all What the radical left can learn from One Direction My entire generation is traumatised by something that hasn’t happened yet. Shaking and sleeplessness, autoimmolatory alcoholism, fits of violent rage and sobbing breakdowns, weeks of self-imposed seclusion, an epidemic of anxiety. Generation Todestrieb. The accusatory inner voice that used to constantly seek out our weaknesses and insecurities doesn’t even have to bother any more. These are the sounds left behind when you compress a song to MP3 If you're listening to music right now, you can probably hear the vocalist's slight pitch-shifts, or hiss of a drummer's hi-hats, or the padded thump of a synth bed. But do you ever think about what you're not hearing? If you listen to MP3s, your music library lost some of its sonic weight during the audio compression process, but it's likely you'd never realize anything was missing.

The edition is by Monsignor Francis Xavier Haberl (d. 1910), a student of Proske, and what he produced is nothing short of miraculous. Moreover, his modal sensitivity is not what we might expect from a 19th-century musician. 1 Some might not understand how to read the clefs used by Haberl—but all you have to do is click here.

The 10 Best Movies Influenced by Kierkegaardian Philosophy Soren Kierkegaard was an interesting man. A Danish philosopher, he is often considered the first existentialist (though yes, existentialism is much older than Kierkegaard), as well as a theologian and social critic. His works deal with faith, ethical life, repetition, choice, despair, and everything else related to living as an individual. Many of his writings are responses to Hegel, and all of them spurred controversy. Kierkegaard was born into a wealthy family in Copenhagen and was well educated. His father died at a young age, and Kierkegaard himself was convinced that he would die before he was to turn 33, thanks to a curse.

Bach & Roll: 10 Modern Songs Written By Classical Composers by Meghan O'Keefe 7/31/2013 If you’re one of those people who swears that they hate classical music, you may want to sit down because you’ve probably been listening to classical music this whole time without knowing it. Sure, everyone uses the same finite number of chord progressions in pop music (many of which can be traced back to Bach), but it also turns out that some of your favorite hit songs, indie pop gems and classic standards aren’t modern at all. They were ripped off. Your favorite graduation song is Pachelbel’s “Canon in D Major,” one of Elvis Presley’s greatest hits is actually a sappy 18th century ballad and Robin Thicke’s real breakthrough song, “When I Get You Alone,” is Beethoven’s Fifth.

With vinyl sales on the rise, this startup lets anyone press their own LP We often talk about the lost magic of owning a physical thing, whether that’s books, CDs, or the wondrous black slab of plastic that is the vinyl record. Holding that object in your hand, flicking through its dog-eared pages and admiring its intricately crafted artwork, imparts a sense of ownership that you just can't replicate with a Kindle or a convenient subscription to Spotify. The trouble is, making physical objects is hard, not to mention expensive. That's especially true of the vinyl record, where pressing plants aren't exactly ten a penny.
