Graham formulates a history that begins with the Shakers, an early religious community who practiced self-denial and ecstatic trance dances. With the “reeling and rocking” of religious revivals as his…

Three Free Radicals: avangarde ambient music, Scott L. Miller & Mart Soo su #neuguitars #blog

In chimica, si definisce radicale libero un’entità molecolare molto reattiva avente vita media di norma brevissima, costituita da un atomo o una molecola formata da più atomi, che presenta un elettrone spaiato: tale elettrone rende il radicale estremamente reattivo, in grado…

Three Free Radicals: avangarde ambient music, Scott L. Miller & Mart Soo on #neuguitars #blog

https://open.spotify.com/artist/1zuab9OQ7LvbCmsUPtE97T http://www.scottlmiller.net/index.php/bio/ https://et.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mart_Soo Apparently free radicals are not quiet entities. In chemistry, a free radical is defined as a very reactive molecular entity with a very short average life, consisting of an atom or a molecule formed by several atoms, which presents an unpaired electron: this electron makes the radical extremely reactive, able to bind…

La chitarra di Carlos Alomar, Dream Generator su #neuguitars #blog

Esistono musicisti che, per tutta la loro vita, sembrano operare nell’ombra. Talentuosi. Preparati. Determinati. Mai in vista. Mai nel ruolo di leader. I gregari perfetti. Carlo Alomar è una di queste persone preziose. Il suo nome è strettamente associato a quello di David Bowie per il quale ha lungo e sempre in maniera proficua lavorato,…

Carlos Alomar’s guitar, Dream Generator on #neuguitars #blog

There are musicians who, throughout their lives, seem to work in the shadows. Talented. Determined. Never in sight. Never in the role of leader. The perfect followers. Carlo Alomar is one of these precious people. His name is closely associated with David Bowie, for whom he has long and always worked profitably, playing not only…

Godspeed You! Black Emperor on #neuguitars #blog

http://cstrecords.com/artist/godspeed-you-black-emperor/ https://godspeedyoublackemperor.bandcamp.com/ I don’t want to use terms like “band” or “ensemble” to find a definition for Godspeed You! Black Emperor. I’m not even looking for a convenient definition. Their predisposition to go against all the logics present in the music scene, their way of presenting themselves with emails that looks like manifestos, their manifold…

Andy Summers e Robert Fripp. “I Advance Masked” (1982) e “Bewitched” (1984), il dinamico duo su #neuguitars #blog

Siamo nel 1982. Il successo dei Police si è ormai stabilizzato e orientato dopo quattro dischi uno più bello, uno più importante dell’altro. L’ultimo, Ghost in the Machine (1981), li vede in forma smagliante. Synchronicity, la pietra miliare, l’apogeo, lo zenith definitivo che consacrerà definitivamente il gruppo nel pantheon delle leggende del rock è in…

La macchina inconscia e la chitarra semiotica di Wendy Eisenberg su #neuguitars #blog

https://www.wendyeisenberg.com/ http://www.tzadik.com/index.php?catalog=4027 Ho conosciuto Wendy eisenberg tramite una delle combinazioni causalmente fortuite che avvengono in internet: un video dello youtuber Don Mount, un appassionato che con pazienza quasi feticistica ha costruito un impressionante archivio di video di concerti tenuti dai personaggi che affollano la scena underground newyorkese. Don Mount è una figura cruciale nello “scenius”…
