Von Independent zu Indie
Der Berliner Punk-Fan Burkhardt Seiler fuhr 1978 nach London, auf der Suche nach dem neuen Sound. Für 600 Mark kaufte er Singles und lernte Geoff Travis kennen, den Betreiber des Rough-Trade-Labels. Seiler wurde zu einem seiner Exportkunden, gab sich den Namen Zensor und eröffnete 1979 im Hinterzimmer einer Klamotten-Boutique den Laden Zensor-Schallplatten.

Exploring JS Bach's Goldberg Variations

spectrum

You are cordially invited to visit "Exploring JS Bach's Goldberg Variations" at digitalbach.com/goldberg. This is the second phase of the Oregon Bach Festival's Digital Bach Project, which is a collaboration between Northern Arizona University, the University of Oregon, Oregon Bach Festival, HHänssler Classic, and the Hinkle Charitable Foundation. Full story with photos and links here.

This is an experiment in a browsing/gaming approach, intended to stimulate curiosity and promote exploration. It casts a wide audience, not targeted for any particular group. The object is to develop new audiences for Bach. That said, it contains interesting pedagogical material, including animation of the nine canons of BWV 988 as well as Bach's fourteen-canon addendum (BWV 1087).[read more]

Why “Sounds and Gestures”? In recent years, Stravinsky’s music has increasingly been approached from historical and cultural perspectives. Some attempts have also been made to investigate its gestural and bodily dimensions, and its embodied cognitive aspects.[Read More]

Django Unchained
Django Unchained ein 'Shaft' Prequel? Reviewed by Panther Revue on 16.07.2012 .
The Big Payback
Eine Woche vor Beendigung der Dreharbeiten zu Django Unchained, in der noch Szenen mit Jonah Hill als Mitglied der Regulatoren (eine Vor- Bürgerkrieg Version des KKK) zu realsieren sind, stellte Tarantino mit seiner fast vollstänigen Crew seinen neuesten Film Django Unchained bei der ComicCon vor. Das Panel wurde von Anthony Breznican von Entertainment Weekly moderiert ,der den Film als "verdrehtes, blutige Märchen" bezeichnete, bevor er Jamie Foxx, Walton Goggins, Don Johnson Christoph Waltz (lange Haare und buschiger, weißer Bart, der fast aussah wie ein falschser Weihnachtsmann),Kerry Washington, und Tarantino vorstellte. Der Auftritt von Kerry Washington, die in dem Film Brunhilde Shaft, ein Vorfahrin von John Shaft, darstellt , verführte QT dazu, den Titelsong dem begeisterten Publikum vorzusingen. Nach der historischen Genauigkeit seines Films befragt, antwortete Tarantino, dass die Zeit vor dem Bürgerkrieg im Süden der USA kaum surrealer und gruseliger dargestellt werden könnte, als sie es in Wirklichkeit war. Der Film erzählt die Geschichte eines anfangs anonymen Sklaven in Ketten der später zu einem heldenhaften Kopfgeldjäger wird.Read More
