Bela Bartok: An Analysis of His Music by Ernő Lendvai

By Ernő Lendvai

Review:

This is the main concise musical research i've got ever learn. The examples are transparent and with out ambiguity. The logical development of discussing the easy development blocks of Bartok's variety best directly to the complicated elements of his writing is ideal. although, the top fulfillment of this publication is the part that explains the common development of harmonic constructions from Bach via Bartok that dispells any rumors or theories that twentieth century song is basically a mathematical aberration or a gratuitous build. so that it will notice why smooth Jazz owes a lot of it's thought to Bartok, learn this booklet.

Mr. Edison has already (with his assistant, Mr. Batchelor) listened to the sounds of molecular vibrations, and is thus the first mortal who has removed the veil of Isis from one of the innermost shrines of nature’s temple. For this instrument of magnification promise I propose the name of kosmophone. . The new science of kosmophonics will have several subdivisions of striking originality and interest.

Media have never been monopolized by a separate wilderness and it is too late to start now. Recent ecotheory and political ecology have critiqued the term nature, yet never in relation to where the word has never been used: the ostensibly pure sociality that is media. Thus, I am hanging on to a notion of nature (in effect, natures) as a means to introduce it to where it has long since been abandoned. Instead of the capital-N Nature that has served to mask machinations of capital, the question of nature in media actually opens political and ecological investigations rather than closes them down.

Watson heard radio once the telephone was hooked up to an outdoor telephone test line because the line acted as an unwitting long-wave antenna. The other lines coursing through Boston were telegraphic and there were no widespread sources of electrical interference. Most telegraphers closed shop at the end of the business day, meaning there was even less interference during the night when Watson listened to the sounds on his line. Writing in his autobiography fifty years after the fact, Watson reminisced: At this time, early in 1876, there was but one outdoor telephone line in the world.
