Various African Acoustic Vol 2 Kenya Dry Town Country Guitar 1950 1965

  • Team Healthy Clips [3. Young Galaxy : "B. After working as a freelance composer, he was appointed professor of composition at the Vienna Music Academy in This long awaited reissue comes with sound from the original tape and was pressed -like the original- at Detroit's Archer Records, 50 years later. We On 1 by DJ Rashad. Flamboyantly dressed and dazzlingly androgynous, Stardust helps revolutionize ideas about gender and sexuality like never before. After the amazing debut release from it took the band three years to deliver this great follow-up.

    The group's leader, D. Misiani, dryly recounts the tale of a rich party giver who refuses to pay the band and instead curses the singer with black-magic illness. This disturbing turn of events and the happy ending in which the prayers of the poor restore the musician's health smolders in Mr. Misiani's guitar work - he's easily one of the most vibrant soloists in Kenya. Then Mr. Misiani's guitar gets into a tumbling call-and-response with his male chorus and the song peaks with a deliriously loose exchange of chimes and buzzes among the guitars and drummer.

    Like many African pop groups, Shirati Jazz advances with a corny slip backward and a sublime glide forward. There's no doubt about Mr. Misiani's commitment as a progressive.

    In the middle 60's, Shirati Jazz spearheaded the creation of benga, a Kenyan challenge to the dominant styles from Zaire. Benga draws on ancient stringed-instrument rhythms, the clipped phrases of the ceremonial women's choral singing known as bodi and the shimmering runs of the 50's Zairean guitarist Jean Bosco Mwenda.

    Q: Why is this conference important for Baton Rouge? It is a city that is home to many progressive, liberation-minded individuals, but also steeped in cultural norms of bigotry, racism and exclusion. Because Baton Rouge is home to two large universities and a city that has an influx of revolving residents, many of whom are young people of color, it is important for those people to be able to see this city be a place that is not just tolerant of them, but one that validates their existence and their stories.

    Q: Who are some of the key people involved in Black Out Loud? A: We have a core team of people planning the conference who bring various levels of expertise to the table in the realms of funding development, public relations, talent management and volunteerism.

    The main conference day, Aug. Q: What is the role of non-Black people who seek to be involved in the conference? A: You do not have to be an African American, but you should be aware that the center piece of this conference is the Black narrative. Meaning that if a non-Black participant is engaging with Black Out Loud, their plan should be to learn and engage, but not to seek to center themselves. We have had non-Black people sign up to volunteer and the idea with volunteerism from non-Black people specifically white volunteers is one in which their volunteerism is truly from a place of supportive service and not from a place of taking up visibility or centering themselves.

    Q: Where can people go to find more information? We also have a Twitter and Instagram account blackoutloudbr. Questions can be sent to blackoutloudbr gmail. A website is forthcoming, but all information including registration, volunteerism, sponsorship etc.

As the sun rises on the blockbuster Black Panther movie, it illuminates the work of Louisiana Black creatives including an English professor who writes and lectures on Afrofuturism, a comic creator who uses historic air legends to pen a new future, and an artist who embraces the imagery and passion of Afrofantasy in developing the culture for his labor of love.

Lavender studies American literature and popular culture with an emphasis on Black American literature.

    Consuming his theme, Afrofuturism, is no easy task. He explains that Afrofuturism involves the past, present and future of race in sci-fi. He and his co-creator Marcus Williams , comic artist and illustrator, have developed a fictional world based on the legendary Tuskegee Airmen, Black World War II pilots. Tuskegee Heirs is a futuristic sci-fi that takes place about 80 years from the present in a time when man-piloting is illegal.

    All air flight is remote or with the use of drones. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first Black military aviators in the U. Army Air Corps, that later became the U. Air Force. Their performance earned them more than Distinguished Flying Crosses and helped encourage the integration of the American military.

    Tuskegee Heirs stands with Black Panther in many ways including the use of strong female characters: Ayanna, a unit leader; Genesis, the mission briefer; and Jena, the mechanic.

    Tuskegee Heirs is a six-book series that the creators hope to push toward animation. If differs from Afrofuturism, but his admiration and excitement for Afrofuturism is through the roof. Mitchell explained that Afrofuturism, as what is seen with Black Panther and Wakanda, does not mean the setting is in the future, but that it employs futuristic technology emerged in the current time setting. He has not summarized his storyline, but the words released in conception reflect his background in poetry as well as art:.

    In the beginning was the beat. The beat became the Dual Rhythm. Mitchell sees a refreshing wind blowing as more embrace the hashtag BlackCreatives.

    Come to the Carver Branch at 11 a. Since Wagner was in debt he was urged to disappear. As Wagner's most ardent admirer, he wanted to give him the opportunity to finish his Der Ring des Nibelungen. So, instead of the rough journey to the Alps, Wagner went on 3 May to Munich, and after the reception by the King, returned to Vienna to pay his debts before he moved into the Villa on Lake Starnberg provided to him by the King. After studying economics, history and philosophy, he dealt primarily with social issues and made it his life's work to create a "democratic party for social progress" which the monarchy respected as the uppermost representative of the people.

    He invited both to Stone Mill. The news of Lassalle's arrival quickly spread in Osthofen. The villagers watched, with curiosity, as both guests walked from the railway station to the Stone Mill on 6 July. At the Stone Mill the reception was polite.

    Lassalle made friends there and when they parted, he ordered a barrel of the "Riesling" which he had been served. Wendelin was invited to accompany Lassalle on a trip to the east of Switzerland but, because of an urgent message received from his wife, who had fallen seriously ill in Leipzig, he had to decline the invitation.

    This occasion turned disastrous as Lassalle was challenged to a duel and was fatally shot. Lassalle's death was a severe blow that took Wendelin a long time to overcome, convinced that Lassalle's death could have been averted if he had stayed with him. Throughout his life Wendelin remained faithful to the Social Democratic Party, although this commitment brought disadvantages for his professional career. Despite his official duties and numerous other engagements he continued to compose.

    Franz Liszt and Wagner spoke appreciatively of this work. However, Count von Redern recommended Liszt to run the premiere on a different stage because Prince Louis Ferdinand was to play a role which would affect the Prussian royal family too strongly. For the premiere to be accommodated elsewhere it would be important to gain Wagner's support, for whom Wendelin had fought for many years.

    But Wagner was too immersed in his own work to be of any help. They were married for 45 years but produced no children. Rosalie survived her husband, dying at the age of 79 on 25 September in Darmstadt.

    For this reason he looked up to Wagner in Munich. Wagner soon became interested in Mrs. Wendelin, like his father, was stubborn and didn't support her views. His disagreement with Cosima came between him and Wagner. During the subsequent activity in Zurich, friendship linked him and his wife to the Wesendonck family.

    Together with Otto Dessoff he headed the concerts of the artists meeting with the performance of his Master Martin and his companions in May He had his residence on the idyllic Lake Como.

    His book, Experiences with Richard Wagner, Franz Liszt and many other contemporaries saw three editions in one single year. Around he moved to Nuremberg and from Freiburg and Nuremberg the way led him back again more often to his native homeland at the Stone Mill.

    In the casino society there he spent hours with old friends whom he pleased most joyfully with improvisations on works by Wagner and Liszt and on his own compositions.

    His target was the huge masses of the workers' movement. Even though he tried compositionally to go his own way, he could not emerge from the shadow of his great teacher Liszt, and of Wagner. Even if his "absolute" music pays homage to one of the great string quartet and successful "obligatory violin parts" to Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, he displays in his other works a clear tendency for program music.

    His literary taste is evident in the texts he set to music. He studied composition and conducting at the Cologne Hochschule fur Musik , where his teachers were Abendroth, Braunfels, Jarnach, and Klussmann.

Emmett was born in the New Orleans suburb of Gretna, Louisiana, he was a child prodigy, described as already playing marvelously in his early teens. Some New Orleans musicians remembered as a musical highlight of their lives a cutting contest where after long and intense struggle Hardy succeeded in outplaying Louis Armstrong.

    Sadly Emmett did not appear on any of the Rhythm Kings recording sessions, never making any commercial recordings before his very early death, but he and some of his musician friends made some home recordings on wax phonograph cylinders for their own amusement. As Hardy's tuberculosis worsened and his death seemed inevitable, the friends decided to preserve the cylinders as a memento of Emmett's playing. When advancing tuberculosis started to make his breathing difficult, he taught himself banjo so he could continue playing music tuberculosis.

American jazz and swing drummer and band leader of the Chick Webb Band; he used custom-made pedals, goose-neck cymbal holders, a inch bass drum and a wide variety of other percussion instruments and perched high upon a platform he created thundering solos of a complexity and energy that paved the way for the likes of Buddy Rich, who studied Chick intensely.

In , his band became the house band at the Savoy Ballroom, and became one of the best-regarded bandleaders and drummers of the new "Swing" style.

    She was also musically gifted and took private piano lessons. His first piano teacher was his mother, Angelina. The changed financial situation made his mother, now a widow, move to Novi Sad where life was more affordable. This school was well known for its music activities Svetosavke besede. He concurrently attended Serbian music school until , and also later , where he studied music theory subjects and composition with Stevan St.

    He graduated from Munich Music Academy in June While in military service, he was appointed a music teacher in the Fourth Belgrade Gymnasium, and the same year also started teaching in the Serbian Music School. This event initiated the nurturing of chamber music in Belgrade on a more regular basis.

    Following the outbreak of World War I he was appointed to the Supreme Command headquarters until He remained in France from until mid During the entire war, he remained involved with composing; he also performed at concerts of Serbians music in Nice, Monte Carlo, Lyon, and Paris as a piano accompanist, and held a public lecture about modern Serbian music in Paris. At first, he returned to his previous teaching positions at the gymnasium and music school. Soon afterward he turned to completing his musicology studies and earned his doctorate degree at the Charles University in Prague At the same time, up until he also taught at the Music School in Belgrade—previously Serbian Music School principal — In he became a Professor of composition and theory disciplines at the Music Academy in Belgrade.

    Of a diminished health condition, starting in February , he was no longer able to continue teaching at the Music Academy. Milojevic died 16 June in Belgrade. They had one daughter, Gordana — , a pianist and music pedagogue. During his studies in Munich, he discovered German New Romanticism and became closely involved with the music of Richard Strauss.

    His stay in France resulted with even stronger impressions. While in Prague, working on his dissertation, he made contacts with Czech avant-garde composers. Throughout his life, though, he preserved his affinity toward the national style—toward folklore as a foundation of art music. Thus, the last stage of his creative work is characterized by utilizing folk melodies amidst the stylistic blend of Neo-romanticist and Impressionist elements.

    Two main areas of his work belong to the Lied and piano character piece, but he also significantly contributed to choral and chamber genres. His interpretation of the lyrics was realized by supple melodies and rich harmonic palette of the piano part. Strauss, and Impressionism. These works merge impressionistic and expressionistic elements.

    This effective work is often compared to The Goat-herd Kozar by S. His highly successful collections Cameos Kameje —42 and My mother Moja majka are characterized by the synergy of Neo-romanticism and Impressionism.

    This work somewhat exhibits insufficiencies in the aspects of thematic development and orchestral sound. His suite for string orchestra, Intimacy Intima , built on the re-la-do-mi-la motive, deems far more successful.

    While featuring six movements and several moods depicted by the subtitles , this composition demonstrates coherency and rich sound colour. He composed two string quartets in G-major, and in c-minor, , the G-major quartet being the first work of this genre in Serbian music. He also composed two sonatas for violin and piano in b-minor, and in d-minor , Sonata for flute and piano in f-sharp minor and Sonata in g for viola solo The most substantial among these works is Sonata for violin and piano in b-minor, a piece of sturdy structure and great expressivity ranging from discrete lyricism to passionate drama.

    He is also represented in the Anthology of Serbian Lied no. D, His monograph Smetana—life and works, a pioneer work in thematic and genre terms in Serbian musicology, occupies a notable place among his musicological studies Belgrade: S. He taught history and theory of music at the Belgrade University School of Philosophy from —39 Assistant Professor since , Docent since , and Associate Professor since These were the pioneering and until present day the only lectures in those disciplines at that institution.

    Music history was at the time studied as a minor course at the departments for general history, and comparative literature and literature theory. Attempts to open a musicology department were not materialized. He was an extraordinary speaker and lecturer. He published over a thousand critiques, studies, essays, treatises, reviews, obituaries and notes in a large number of various daily papers, and literary and other periodicals.

    The significance of his writings on music is multifold. In his essays and critiques, he provided for Serbian and Yugoslav audiences critical information about a number or events, personalities, phenomena, and issues on older and newer European music.

    A passionate proponent of the Slavophil and Yugoslav ideology, he nonetheless did not allow ideology to rule over aesthetics. Thus, the autonomy of art and primacy of aesthetic values were never questioned in his writings. The Serbian postwar musicology did not approvingly view the stylistic aspect of his writings. Consequently, after his death, he was to a degree, and certainly unjustifiably underrated, and his writings were by all means insufficiently read.

    That was in any way, also the case in the relationship of Serbian postwar musicology toward the history of writing about music, as a branch of research and exploration in musicology. This discipline was deeply overshadowed by composition analysis, the priority of our musicology at the time. His views on contemporary music were not straightforward, but rather vacillating, particularly in accepting radical avant-garde practices.

    At the same time, he did not withhold from his audience information on events he personally did not endorse. This was especially corroborated by thematic volumes dedicated to Czech music, Franz Schubert, achievements of Polish and English music, and Ludwig van Beethoven. Within the auspices of the association, he started and edited sheet music publishing, an activity of extraordinary importance.

    He produced a number of works in this field and transcribed nearly melodies and dances. He was attracted to folklore, both as a researcher and a composer, thus was also fond of the idea of composing art music upon folk tunes. His family moved to L.

Capturing elements of Spacemen 3 and MBV while creating their own distinctive sound, I've loved this album ever since it was released back in I suddenly realised that this amazing album had never been made available on vinyl.

    And then I remembered that I ran my own record label. Not sure why it took me so long to put 2 and 2 together but I contacted the band immediately and the wheels were quickly put into motion. As it happens, the band were in the process of putting out a new album via their Bandcamp page and also remastering their earlier work so the timing could not have been better.

    Garden Of Delight. Soviet Grail presents the long-awaited, extended and official reissue on limited edition vinyl of the selftitled album of the Kazakh vocal-instrumental ensemble Dos-Mukasan, which has become a holy grail for sophisticated diggers and record collectors from all over the world.

    The average cost of the original record on the secondary market is euros. And it is no accident After all, the album is one of the few examples of exotic and psychedelic sound of the day where foggy and beautiful vocal arrangements are interwined with fuzz guitars refs, and drum beats are carried out in unison with their broken rhytms.

    The reissue from Soviet Grail provides an excellent opportunity to finally enjoy this album from beginning to end in the best and most accessible form.

    Originally from Their only hit, "Jig-a-jig", ist not typical for their music. The band can look back on a history of eleven long-players, not counted the many compilations. The event was recorded semi-professionally by the promoters. The recordings were mastered now in a first-class sound studio with great effort and care. The sound, however, is naturally not as good as that of the studio LPs. The page booklet contains a long band history in German and English, a detailed discography, numerous cover repros as well as a personal retrospective report by Dave Arbus.

    A must for collectors. It is the first legitimate release of an East of Eden live recording. Back in , a very small edition of their firstling, called simply "Emtidi", had appeared on the small Thorofon label. While there is to be heard some quite traditional folk with acoustic guitar and English lyrics on the LP front side, reminiscent maybe of the early Bob Dylan, the flip side already sounds far more psychedelic, with an abundant use of the flute.

    The male-female duet singing, all in English, is pleasing to the ear. The Garden of Delights edition at hand has been taken from the master tape, and in the booklet you can find pretty much all one could wish to know about Emtidi. Originally releases in Taken from the original mastertapes and 4 bonus tracks.

    These recordings from an interesting band from Wuppertal with ex-members of Cannabis India features lots of keyboard, mellotron, flute and lyrics in English.

The master tapes were recorded in There's lots of heavy electric guitar, progressive electric violin with fusion and classical overtones, massive drum and bass, swirling garage organ, funky piano and heavenly vocal harmonies. The boklet contains informative liner notes, original Fred cartoons and plenty of photos.

    The somewhat clinical studio sound and recording style with which the band had established a tremendous following is replaced with a much more free and conceptual recording style. This method liberated the group in the studio, making these recordings feel much more open, heavy and psychedelic.

    Opening with a nod to Syd Barret's Pink Floyd, the album begins with morse code and drops into one of the heaviest slowburn grooves in the Grails canon. Sounding something like Hawkwind and Ravi Shankar scoring 'Blade Runner', it's lysergic and earthy for Grails in a new way. The rest of the record moves from blissful Eno-inspired ambience to epic Morriconesque rock hymns, via an unexpected take on a Ventures tune that returns the listener to the very beginnings of instrumental rock music.

    Soviet Grail presents an extended and official reissue of the album 'I See Earth' by the cult -and respected among the diggers- the Turkmen jazz-rock and fusion band Gunesh, under the direction of Oleg Kimovich Korolev.

On this album, the band combines eclectic song structures with the freedom of improvisation. The five songs vary between haunting ballads and driving mind-melting stoner moves.

    Released on the Yobo label, the two songs represented the entire released output by the combo. For years, if recalled at all, The London Dri would be remembered for that lone single. Between their formation and their disbandment in , however -and in between hundreds of performances and even a movie appearance- The London Dri recorded several other songs that, had they been released, would certainly have earned the group a more prominent standing today among Hollywood rock groups of the era.

    Finally here's the band's entire legacy; 11 killer tracks in the distinctive London Dri style. Included is a detailed 8-page booklet with history by Mike Dugo and pics.

    Includes bonus tracks and booklet. This record continues the story of Maat Lander, the fictional eccentric demiurge, which is bored by traveling in space and now begins to explore the microcosm.

    The album is a sonic voyage with a diversity beyond anything yet evidenced by the band. Their debut self titled album was recorded live in the studio with vocal and hammond overdubs. Limited to copies in digipack. The band mostly played long jazzy instrumental pieces, dominated by flute and alto saxophone, at times interrupted by mainly English vocals and some follies.

    Here are 5 sessions collected on 1 CD, limited to copies in digipack. Comes in digipack. Originally released on Maris Records in The CD makes clear that these guys are competent musicians with a love for a. One thing about Wild Fuzz Trip that sets them apart is they make music that you would call doom, but also they make psychedelic music, too.

    They ride right along the line between doom and psych. A track like 'Mammoth Tower' has some psych elements to it, but it is more doom. But a track like 'Stonefly Echo' has more psych guitar and effects.

    So many pedals! Due to his naive approach he portrayed the developments in the local scene s in a unique style, very different from how the average professional would have worked. This book does not only pay tribute to Handl's work, but also to an exciting period in rock music.

    It features over 80 photographs of a. Published for the first time, there are photos of artists in action on stage, and off stage!

    The work of Ulrich Handl is a sensational discovery! The tandem, disguised as an ghost-like fanfare, rises like a phoenix on the dance floor. Jouis are a three piece from Brighton, UK. With an acoustic feeling, esoteric lyrics and dark mood, the album involves the guitaristic folk of the '60s and '70s together with the Americana compositions of today while the artist's vocal performance, pushes the acoustic boundaries of each composition to a dive in a deep level melodic ocean. The two songs were recorded at WCBN college radio with producer Joe Doll, known for his pioneering psychedelic radio programs.

    Through the years the band's single has earned acclaim with collectors worldwide. This long awaited reissue comes with sound from the original tape and was pressed -like the original- at Detroit's Archer Records, 50 years later. Great sound!

    Pennytown Sound brings you 'I Am With You' and its flipside 'Happy Feeling' direct from the original analog master tapes, baked at degrees Fahrenheit for 5 hours to restore both tracks to their original pristine raw, garage-punk sound. The Olivers from Fort Wayne, Indiana evolved out of the Serfmen, a popular local band with two rare 7-inches on their own Nemfres label.

    When the Serfmen signed with Indiana based agency Dino Enterprises in , original member Greg Church left the band and was replaced by Billy Franze from another local group, The Unexpected. The band then moved in a British invasion direction, both for the music and outfits, and changed its name to The Olivers.

    In a country about the size of Texas, more than 40 languages compete in song. There is even a coastal Islamic style, tarabu, that emigrated from Zanzibar and has only the Swahili language in common with any other Kenyan music.

    The country's diverse modes have been well studied and frequently recorded, but without a dominant sound to promote, little has arrived in the United States. Vivid division separates performances into the period before rumba musicians from Zaire flooded the Kenyan market in the mid's and after, when their influence has never been far away.

    The musicians who flourished through the 50's in Kenya were often initially true country folkies. Ensembles included no more than two acoustic guitars, a bit of simple percussion and, eventually, vigorous two-part harmony vocals.

    The music of these performers was called ''dry'' guitar, after the shifting combination of strumming and finger-picking that accompanied it. Roberts includes examples of songs in various languages, music by a few strictly rural players and a sampling from guitar groups working in Nairobi before electric amplifiers took over. On the surface, many of the tracks sound like merely enticing blends of influences.

    Some Latin sway lifted from Cuban records meets hints of country-and-western lope borrowed from American albums. The brief, declarative figures transferred to guitar from the traditional lyre crop up with odd accompaniment like banjo and clarinet.


  • In his essays and critiques, he provided for Serbian and Yugoslav audiences critical information about a number or events, personalities, phenomena, and issues on older and newer European music. A passionate proponent of the Slavophil and Yugoslav ideology, he nonetheless did not allow ideology to rule over aesthetics.

    Thus, the autonomy of art and primacy of aesthetic values were never questioned in his writings. The Serbian postwar musicology did not approvingly view the stylistic aspect of his writings. Consequently, after his death, he was to a degree, and certainly unjustifiably underrated, and his writings were by all means insufficiently read. That was in any way, also the case in the relationship of Serbian postwar musicology toward the history of writing about music, as a branch of research and exploration in musicology.

    This discipline was deeply overshadowed by composition analysis, the priority of our musicology at the time. His views on contemporary music were not straightforward, but rather vacillating, particularly in accepting radical avant-garde practices. At the same time, he did not withhold from his audience information on events he personally did not endorse.

    This was especially corroborated by thematic volumes dedicated to Czech music, Franz Schubert, achievements of Polish and English music, and Ludwig van Beethoven. Within the auspices of the association, he started and edited sheet music publishing, an activity of extraordinary importance.

    He produced a number of works in this field and transcribed nearly melodies and dances. He was attracted to folklore, both as a researcher and a composer, thus was also fond of the idea of composing art music upon folk tunes.

    His family moved to L. He began studying trumpet at age eight, and was working with local bands by age He attended Stanford, where he earned a degree in composition in Upon graduation, he was hired by Stan Kenton, and toured with him through the end of He then worked with Woody Herman in and , and spent four years with Horace Silver.

    Harrell worked with George Russell in , then joined Phil Woods in , with whom he worked through He has often worked and recorded with Joe Lovano. During the s, he has primarily led his own groups, although he has played as a member of Charlie Haden's Liberation Orchestra beginning in as well as in the N. Jazz Giants He is one of the top soloists despite a serious schizophrenic condition which requires constant treatment. Although initially featuring their father on lead vocals, the group was completed with the addition of year-old lead singer, Dennis Seaton.

    Immensely popular in Britain during the next two years, the group disbanded after the release of their poor-selling second album. Turning to drugs and crime, Patrick Waite spent time behind bars.

    Waite and the group had been planning a comeback shortly before his death. Hitting the floor, he struck his head and died instantly. No drugs were found in his system. Tello reports that Moncayo was admitted to the conservatory in ; meanwhile, in order to finance his studies, he worked as a jazz pianist.

    It is not certain in which courses Moncayo registered at the conservatory and who his other teachers were, but thanks to the biographies of his contemporaries Salvador Contreras, Blas Galindo and Daniel Ayala we may assume that Moncayo followed a similar path during his instruction at the National Conservatory.

    According to Robert L. It seems that the new composition course attracted many students, their number increasing year after year, but only four of them attended the final examination. These four diligent students were Moncayo, Contreras, Galindo and Ayala.

    An article written by Galindo confirms his admittance to the course in , together with seven other students. Next year, Moncayo gets a part-time job as music teacher in a school 16 May According to Blas Galindo, with the arrival of this new administration the composition workshop was terminated.

    On 25 November , at P. The second time these four young composers joined as a group was in a concert that took place on 26 March , at P. The Group of Four experienced increasing awareness among Mexican audiences and even some internationalization. One week later, on 11 September, Moncayo made his debut as orchestra conductor with the OSM, at the age of This piece was in reality an orchestral arrangement of several popular dances from the eastern state of Veracruz.

    The transcription of it was very difficult because the huapangueros musicians never sang the same melody twice in the same way. Moncayo began to work on an ambitious project, a symphony. According to Dr. It is evident that the author, finding himself abroad and longing for his fatherland, felt the need to express himself in a Mexican language. Arroyos by Blas Galindo, Moncayo's alter ego in this trip, was premiered in Berkshire a few days before, on 17 August.

    The two Mexicans also had the opportunity to meet two other fellow composers and conductors who attended the courses at Berkshire that summer, Lukas Foss and twenty-four-year-old Leonard Bernstein. I remember Hindemith who was very serious. I also met Latin-American composers like Ginastera. I liked to go visit his studio in New York [City]; his compositions amazed me. He was building his techniques out of noises. I admire him because he dared to break with traditions, he was a pioneer.

    He knew that I cared about him. The year , the rising conducting career of Moncayo brought him to his next position. It was a memorial concert held at the Palace of Fine Arts to honor a distinguished music professor, Don Luis Moctezuma, recently deceased.

    His name never again appeared on a program of the OSN. Scholarly research about this composer in the United States is today still scarce. Despite being highly regarded in his own country, Moncayo has been the subject of scant academic research, restricted to some program notes; magazine, newspaper and journal articles; and short paragraphs in music dictionaries and encyclopedias.

    Although the major contribution of Moncayo to Mexican music has been in the field of composition, he also played a relevant role in the national stage of culture during the ten years of his conducting career — As orchestra conductor, his promising career was hampered by a difficult cultural environment, political situations and premature death. Yolanda Moreno Rivas concludes: The death of Moncayo in tangibly marked the end of the Mexican nationalist composition school.

    In the same way that his work without followers surpassed and abolished the innocent use of the Mexicanism theme, his death closed the predominance of a composition style whose imprint marked musical creation in Mexico during more than three decades; although only at the beginning of the sixties would it be possible to talk about the definitive abandonment of the great Mexican fresco, the oblivion of the epic tone, and the search for new structural factors in composition.

    The English pianist's second No. Many consider it the beginning of the "Summer of Love. Estimates of the total number of attendees range from 25,,, with the second night's 8,strong audience managing to peacefully occupy a space intended for only 7, Some attendees are there for one day while others are there for the full three. A giant Buddha sits in one corner of the grounds. Merchants sell food and wares from booths.

    Pete Townshend and Jimi Hendrix flip a coin to see who gets to perform first, as each has planned to destroy their instruments onstage and wants to be the first to do so. The Who wins, smashes their instruments, and blows minds. Jimi Hendrix, driven to new heights by The Who's challenge, plays his guitar with his teeth and sets it on fire. Minds are again blown. Jerry Garcia fears that the Grateful Dead's performance is "lame" in comparison.

    At his request, the audience refrains from smoking throughout the long set - no small feat considering the times. The Who succeed in their first major American live bid, while Jimi Hendrix takes one long stride towards musical immortality. Pennebaker gets it all on camera and memorializes the event in Monterey Pop, the film that later inspires Joel Rosenman to fund the Woodstock Music Festival two years later. It becomes regarded as one of the best films of its kind. While the album only manages to chart 21 in the UK and doesn't chart at all in the US, it later becomes hailed as Captain Beefheart's magnum opus masterpiece and receives raves from critics.

After working as a freelance composer, he was appointed professor of composition at the Vienna Music Academy in He was also involved in the Darmstadt summer courses from and served as visiting professor at the University of California, Riverside His other activities included organizing the music programme for the Innsbruck Jugendkulturwochen Although receptive to new ideas, he never yielded to trends.

    His early works are vital and sparkling. Later, he adopted a reductionist aesthetic characterized by tonal purity and textural transparency. A strict use of polyphony and serial techniques, and an economy and synthesis of thematic material were central aspects of his style.

    In he entered the Saint Petersburg Conservatory to study violin. From to he was a law student. In Eller graduated from the conservatory renamed to Petrograd Conservatory. During this time he formed the Tartu school of composition, which gave rise to many composers, including Eduard Tubin.

    In he became a professor of composition at the Tallinn Conservatory and taught there until his death in The school he formed in Tartu counterbalanced the so-called Tallinn school headed by Artur Kapp. The list of his pupils offers the best proof of this: each of them has created a distinguished original style. His works include - Dawn; Twilight; Moderato sostenuto in D minor for voice, viola and piano; Elegia for harp and string orchestra; Concerto in B minor for violin and orchestra; and Five Pieces for string orchestra.
