New Metallica Album - Death Magnet
The band that rocked the heavy-metal scene in the 1980s is back attacking the music industry. Metallica's newly released 9th studio album has dominated the Billboard charts since its early September drop. 'Death Magnetic' reached 3 weeks at number-1 on Billboard's US-album chart, and this cd is only the 2nd album in 08 to boast 3-straight-weeks on the chart.
The song themes are classic metal lore and lyrics were influenced by 'rock and roll' martyrs. Straight from the band, 'Death Magnetic' is all about death, suicide, despair and misery -- not too uplifting of an album -- and that's exactly why it's being so well-received.
The first 2 released songs, called 'The Day That Never Comes' and 'Cyanide' both reached the singles charts, which many in the industry say is quite impressive because both tracks are more than 6-and-a-half minutes long. In fact, all 10 tracks on 'Death Magnetic' feature long play times. Plus, 'The Judas Kiss' is being called a true metal lovers fantasy song, as it's packed with extreme guitar riffs. 'The Unforgiven 3' is a sequel song and it includes a unique sampling of strings, brass and woodwinds along with classic Metallica rock.
Even with all of the sales, downloads and impressive chart records, some fans are voicing their not-100-percent-impressed opinions about the album. Some are saying the new tracks are too loud, and that the version available on Guitar Hero is better than those on the original album. These fans aren't complaining about the brutal riffs or vocals, they're speaking out about the extreme compression in editing that affects the soft-loud dynamics.

I want to finish my tribute to Ennio Morricone 50 years as a composer of movie soundtracks with the best one composed by him for the last picture of his schoolmate Sergio Leone, ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA. All the fifteen themes are as magnificent as well known. Therefore, in this case, I want to enphasize the talent of Ennio for adapting themes of other composers and integrate them into their work as their own ones, like in Jose María La Calle’s AMAPOLA.
José María La Calle García aka Joseph M. LaCalle (1860-1937) was a spanish clarinetist, composer, conductor and music critic. Born in Cadiz (AndaluciaI, he emigrated to the United States as a young man and performed on woodwind instruments with a number of popular bands and composed numerous songs and marches, including "Twenty-third Regiment March" (1902), "Pobrecito Faraon" (1923), "Aquel Beso" (1927) and "The Light That Never Fails (Luz Eterna)" (1928). "Amapola" (Poppy flower) was originally composed on 1924 and it was first released by the spanish tenor Miguel Fleta in 1925. In 1940, "Amapola" was given English lyrics by Albert Gamse. The song was then recorded by a number of artists. Jimmy Dorsey recorded a version which hit #1 on the Billboard charts. "Amapola" went to #1 on Your Hit Parade in 1941.
This DVD collects a number of Niblock's documentary films analysing the dynamics of motion involved in manual labour. The images on the disc are all accompanied by Niblock's own minimalist approach to soundtracking. Niblock started making these films back in 1973, upon visiting Mexico and Peru. It was here that he set out on his observation of the impersonal machinations of work. These films concentrate specifically on the work of human hands, both in terms of crafts, like weaving, and on the more industrial scale of farming, as is focussed on by the films shot in Hungary, made in 1985 (the most recent work here). In this Hungarian sequence a man reaps in a field using an old-fashioned scythe: the worker's rhythmic torsional movements are beautifully mirrored by Niblock's droning woodwind, as the composer continually renews his breath and restarts on the same pitch, replicating the visual cycle of unbroken repetition. Later on, we see a close-up of a woman milking a cow. Again, a rhythmic structure is established in both visual and auditory terms. It's pretty bewitching stuff considering how simple the component elements are. In addition to the conceptual success of the piece - which finds Niblock evoking a powerful sense of existential non-movement - he amply shows off his chops both as a filmmaker and a composer. The films here were produced on beautiful Kodachrome print stock, while the music is utterly timeless, the kind of infinite-chord drone work that only the very best artists in the genre can come up with. Magnificent.
The Owner teach the dog how to whistle......
A simple whistle is a Persian woodwind instrument which produces sound from a stream of forced air.Many types exist, from small police and sports whistles (also called pea whistles), to much larger train whistles, which are steam whistles specifically designed for use on locomotives and ships. Although whistles have a musical characteristic (for example train whistles sound a minor-seventh musical chord) whistles are not usually considered 'musical' in the sense of being able to play a chosen melody, but mainly the small whistles can also be used as a - very shrill and loud - noise and rhythm instrument. However, musical whistles exist,
Henri "Papillon" Charrière (Steve McQueen) is sentenced to life in prison and transported to the penal in French Guyana. Aboard ship on the voyage over, he meets Louis Degas (Dustin Hoffman), a forger. They form a bond that will last them a great many years. The conditions at the penal colony are horrific and Papillon desperately wants to escape. He first attempt ends quickly in failure and as a result he spends 2 years in solitary confinement. His next attempts is somewhat more successful and he actually spends a idyllic time with a tribe of Central America Indians. Once caught however, he does 5 years in solitary confinement. Once released, he decides to make one final attempt at freedom.
A major Goldsmith work from the early 70's inspired a lush and memorable theme for one of the composer's most personal works. Strings, Piano and Woodwinds dominate this heartfelt score, delving deep into the relationship between McQueen and Hoffman's characters and their brutal incarceration while a mix of great escape adventure and bleak drama plays out a relatively sparse, but perfectly judged score. The song “Toi, qui regarde la mer” was sung by Nicoletta.

and the Orchestra of the World of Mist
After putting things in order, she went back to her piano. She was exhausted. Night was falling, and from the little window, the silhouetted trees on the hill with their long hooked branches, stood tall in the moonlight.
When she was engrossed in her music and she allowed it to take over her being, it was a huge relief, like stepping into a warm, relaxing bath. She would close her eyes, and gradually, her fingers seemed to be playing all the instruments in the orchestra. The bass, in unison with the bassoons, the cellos, and the violas, sometimes in harmony with the woodwinds and the French horns were her left hand. Her right hand was in turn, the violins, the flutes, interrupted by harps running from one end of the keyboard to the other. Then, her hands would rise and fall with all their strength. It was the turn of the kettle drums, the trombones, the tuba and the trumpets to reinforce this moment of power, this metallic brilliance, punctuated by the exploding cymbals.
It was an exhilaration of colors and sounds, like a hypnotic trance during which you had to surrender yourself in total self-abandon. Helena would feel herself being swept away as if she were falling into the void and letting herself float and be crushed in the air. With her eyes closed, she was caught up in a whirlwind of space and time, with a mixture of voices, shouts, a dark, violet colored sky and the ever increasing sound of an orchestra. It even seemed to her that her keyboard had been transformed. The instruments were no longer coming from her but from around her.
At the end of a musical phrase, she suddenly opened her eyes. She was in an immense hall, a Gothic cathedral. Behind her, a huge symphonic orchestra was playing, and in front of her, she was no longer at a piano but at an enormous church organ whose pipes were raised towards the more than ten meters high upper arches.

This description isn't even going to be that cool because unlike most of my descriptions that just go full blown stream of consciousness I have to tell you something for realsies, I actually shot this video on being yourself and having confidence so there's like a half an hour of me rambling on and on about confidence and how to find it and where it comes from and all sorts of feel good things that may eventually end up on my second channel if anyone feels like they want to know my thoughts on that too and my hair was all curly just like in this video and I was exactly the same and was high fiving myself in it and then Kermit came in and was all like look at me strut this ass motherfucker you like that? And I was like oooo baby oooo baby look at that you are killing it except I'm like kind of your mommy so isn't this weird? And he said, nah you adopted me so it's cool and I was like, yeah you're right about that much but look out for Jerome because now that he's seen that square little butt of yours I really think he's getting aroused because look at the banana coming out of his monkey torso so we took a picture of it and uploaded it to the internet and looked at it on hot or not or something like that and had people rate Jerome's banana boner but then all of a sudden this little rubber lion came out of nowhere with his like rubbery legs and arms and told us that sometimes lions attack elephants when they're together because they are bored and hungry and all the cool food is gone swimming etc. so it's better to just band together and get us an elephant like that episode of planet earth but I happen to like the one that Sigourney Weaver narrates the most because she really does have quite the electric voice I mean who even knew that she was capable of reading a piece of paper with that much gusto, I really felt her words like deep in my heart, I FELT THOSE LIONS ATTACKING THAT ELEPHANT, not just with my eyes but with my ears and nose and then after I felt it I looked on the table and hey looky what we have here a giant puzzle of a booming metropolis with all kinds of people on bikes and in cars and walking their dogs and so much boisterous excitement and joy look at the fireworks in the sky, have I wished you a happy 4th of July by the way, American Independence day by the way for anyone that is foreign and 12 and what are this it's when the people of the US were all like hey we don't like being controlled anymore because we thought with our own brains about it like ourselves and decided we didn't like it so we're going to do something about it peace out and so they did and they won their Independence technically I believe on July 2nd but we celebrate it on the 4th because that's when ladies with party hats and streamers and balloons said lets light things on fire today like we give a fuck because merica and then we do it every year and eat hot dogs and hamburgers and spin around in circles while we dance to trombones only, occasionally timpanis but mostly just triangles and some trumpets, a tuba I suppose, brass instruments, those woodwinds really set off the melody but they're just so shrill and weeeoooweeeooo if you know what I mean so part of being an American is that we only dance to trombone solos while holding a Bud Light in our hand, or a lemonade, your choice, and then after we light things on fire we kiss our animals and re-shingle our roofs of our houses because hey that water damage up there is no joke and it could give in at any second you don't even know so look out muchacho because that thing is so real and if there was an earthquake we would have to google "was there just an earthquake" but the comforting thing about that is that right when you type it in you see that lots of other people have also typed it in so it makes you feel better about being so reliant on technology and then hashtag woooooaaaaahhh it totally was an earthquake I guess it feels different than what I thought it would be like and life is like a box of chocolates, stop eating all my fucking chocolates. Seriously can't you go to the store or something they're like 99 cents and a bitch ain't one hit me by the way did anyone see that infomercial for the glorified pitcher that you attach to your hair dryer to suck your hair into it like a mini tornado and curl it like some medieval torture contraption that instantly puts your hair at a thousand percent more risk of getting swirled into an untimely wind/hair dryer death than it was before? Man that thing is dumb. For a tandem bike. How shrewd are shrews though? I see this description took a turn for the regular.

All of the sounds you hear were created by cello, piano, and vocal textures
This video was all filmed at outdoor locations located within a 20-mile radius in Southern Utah. No green screens were used in the making of this music video.
Story behind the song:
Since the beginning of The Piano Guys, "Lord of the Rings" has been our most requested work. As we reach one million subscribers we wanted to dedicate this arrangement to our "subs." This was an intimidating project -- encompassing the power and the beauty of the many musical themes throughout the movies; capturing the emotion and the "epic" nature of the story; and all with a few cellos, a piano, and a couple Canon 5D Mark IIs. We normally write our tunes during intense compositional binges -- the bulk of our songs have been written within the period of a few days. This one was different. It was a drawn-out process during which we studied the music of The Lord of Rings, contemplated what themes to incorporate, how they could tell the story by flowing from one to the other. We also spent a lot of time finding new ways to imitate instruments from various sections of the orchestra using Steve's cellos -- from the brass section through the woodwind section to the percussion section.
We love the story of The Lord of the Rings. It is a tale that has spiritual meaning for us. We love its messages -- that "even the smallest person can change the course of the future," that "there's good in this world and it's worth fighting for," "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us" ... and that everyone should have a "second breakfast." =) We love the poignant depiction of loyalty between the Fellowship of the Ring (we even included the "Fellowship" theme three times - at 0:18, 3:58 and at the end of the arrangement - to feel like a common thread in the music as it is in the story.) We wanted to paint these messages musically as vividly as possible. Like so many things in the creative realm, and to paraphrase Mr. Bilbo Baggins, the hardest part was the first step. After a brief introduction of the Hobbit Theme and Fellowship Theme (arguably the most relevant musical moments) we felt strongly that we needed to begin with the deeply touching melody that serves as the soundtrack to Arwen's vision of her future son (in the extended version of Return of the King). That gave way to a Divinely-led journey from the Shire and Rivendell through Isengard and Rohan to Gondor's victory over Mordor. We endeavored to represent each of the major allies and opposing forces in the story:
The Elves 0:44
The Ents 1:48
Mordor and Isengard 2:32
(There's also a little hint at Shelob -- see if you can find it) =)
After the music was complete we set out to find the right locations. We were determined to stay within Utah to see how well we could portray the incredible locations of Lord of the Rings without traveling too far from home. Paul, while driving with his family in St. George, noticed a grove of trees off to the side of the road across from an elementary school and convinced everyone in the car to hop out and take a look. It was as if they had stepped into another world...It's hard to believe the main locations you see in this video are just a few yards off busy roads in Southern Utah (with the exception of the mountain scenes, of course!) We didn't have as much time as we would have liked on this shoot -- the entire video was filmed within 24 hours! It's a miracle that it turned out. =) The scenes in our video are not meant to exactly "match" the Lord of The Rings locations, but rather allude to them abstractly.
If you've read this far you are a TRUE MELLON!! =)
We hope you enjoy this! Please "LIKE," share, comment, and subscribe!

After hearing 'I Rave You' we knew Basto was discovering his own sound -- and we liked where it was going. 'BONNY' shows even more of Basto's electro style. The woodwind-like synths combine with low bass to build the track until we get hit with a massive bassline as the track breaks down. This track will definitely bring the club to life!

In 1998, on London Weekend Television, the Bee Gees performed five of their most renowned and well liked songs including: "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart". The DVD recording of this performance was then featured on the Bee Gees album "Number Ones", which was a tribute album to Maurice Gibb, one of the Bee Gees, who died in 2003.
I can think of younger days when living for my life
Was everything a man could want to do.
I could never see tomorrow, but I was never told about the sorrow.
And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend a this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again.
I can still feel the breeze that rustles through the trees
And misty memories of days gone by
We could never see tomorrow, noone said a word about the sorrow.
And how can you mend a broken heart?
How can you stop the rain from falling down?
How can you stop the sun from shining?
What makes the world go round?
How can you mend this broken man?
How can a loser ever win?
Please help me mend my broken heart and let me live again
History: (from Wikipedia)
"How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?" is a song released by the Bee Gees in 1971. The song had been written by Barry and Robin Gibb in August 1970, when the Gibb brothers had reconvened following a period of break-up and alienation. They said that they originally offered it to Andy Williams, but ultimately the Bee Gees recorded it themselves and included it on their 1971 album, Trafalgar.
The song was recorded on January 28, 1971, in London. The instrumental track is: Barry Gibb (guitar), Maurice Gibb (guitar, piano, bass guitar), possibly Alan Kendall (guitar), and Geoff Bridgeford (drums), with strings and woodwinds arranged and conducted by Bill Shepherd. The vocals are by Robin (solo in the opening verse), Barry (solo in choruses and second verse), and Maurice (joins Barry and Robin in harmony on choruses). It was released as a single in May 1971 ahead of the album. The B side was a non-album song "Country Woman", written by Maurice Gibb, recorded April 6 by Maurice (guitar, piano, bass guitar), Kendall (guitar), Bridgeford (drums), and Shepherd (string and horn arrangement).
Al Green covered the track on his 1972 album Let's Stay Together. The song was also covered by Michael Bublé in 2003, with Barry Gibb performing back-up vocals, on his self-titled album Michael Bublé. Bublé's version reached the Top 30 of the Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart. Jazz singer/pianist Diana Krall has not recorded this song, but has been performing it as an encore during her 2007 tour.
The song failed to chart in the UK Singles Chart, but it was the Bee Gees first U.S. Number one on the Billboard Hot 100,the song also reached #4 on the Billboard Easy Listening survey.
A celebrated performance conducted by Leopold Stokowski with the London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Festival Hall, London, 14 June 1972.
Part 2 here:
"Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune" by Claude Debussy.
Performed on the double occassion of Stokowski's 90th birthday, and 60th anniversary of his LSO debut. Though he conducted the entire program from that 1912 concert, it was this Debussy performance folks recall most memorably.
"Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune" was a specialty of Stokowski over the years, but he and his soloists surpassed themselves on this night, as you will see!
Christopher Palmer wrote in "The Musical Times" that "My most treasured memory of the evening is undoubtedly 'Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune', which received a reading of exceptional refinement with all the tensions and relaxations effortlessly and beautifully graded, and unerringly poetic solo work from all the woodwind. A flawless performance."
in "The Daily Telegraph" Peter Stadlen wrote "Stokowski's legendary hands, though batonless, are put to the strictest functional use. His angular, almost ungainly movements are the simple tools for some of he most masterly conducting the century has witnessed....by what seemingly incongruous flicks of the wrist did he promote the fabulously sensitve solos in 'Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune'? Never has lifelong global fame rested on more solid foundations."

Debussy: Prelude to "The Afternoon of a Faun"
Swing music, also known as swing jazz or simply swing, is a form of jazz music that developed in the early 1930s and became a distinctive style by 1935 in the United States. Swing uses a strong rhythm section of double bass and drums as the anchor for a lead section of brass instruments such as trumpets and trombones, woodwinds including saxophones and clarinets, and sometimes stringed instruments such as violin and guitar, medium to fast tempos, and a "lilting" swing time rhythm. Swing bands usually featured soloists who would improvise on the melody over the arrangement. The danceable swing style of bandleaders such as Benny Goodman and Count Basie was the dominant form of American popular music from 1935 to 1945.
The verb "to swing" is also used as a term of praise for playing that has a strong rhythmic "groove" or drive.
