The Guggenheim Puts 109 Free Modern Art Books Online | Open Culture

The Guggenheim Puts 109 Free Modern Art Books Online | Open Culture | jacques bouniard | Scoop.it

Back in January, 2012, we mentioned that the Guggenheim (the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed modern art museum in NYC) had put 65 art catalogues on the web, all free of charge.

We’re happy to report that, between then and now, the number of free texts has grown to 109. Published between 1937 and 1999, the art books/catalogues offer an intellectual and visual introduction to the work of Alexander Calder, Edvard Munch, Francis Bacon, Gustav Klimt & Egon Schiele, Fernand Léger, and Kandinsky. Plus there are other texts (e.g., Masterpieces of Modern Art and Abstract Expressionists Imagists) that tackle meta movements and themes.

Anyone interested in the history of the Guggenheim will want to spend time with a collection called “The Syllabus.” It contains five books by Hilla Rebay, the museum’s first director and curator. Together, they let you take a close look at the art originally housed in the Guggenheim when the museum first opened its doors in 1939.

Argentina: 'Biggest dinosaur ever' discovered | BBC News

Argentina: 'Biggest dinosaur ever' discovered | BBC News | jacques bouniard | Scoop.it

Fossilised bones of a dinosaur believed to be the largest creature ever to walk the Earth have been unearthed in Argentina, palaeontologists say.

 

Based on its huge thigh bones, it was 40m (130ft) long and 20m (65ft) tall.

 

Weighing in at 77 tonnes, it was as heavy as 14 African elephants, and seven tonnes heavier than the previous record holder, Argentinosaurus.

 

Scientists believe it is a new species of titanosaur - an enormous herbivore dating from the Late Cretaceous period.

 

A local farm worker first stumbled on the remains in the desert near La Flecha, about 250km (135 miles) west of Trelew, Patagonia.

 

The fossils were then excavated by a team of palaeontologists from the Museum of Palaeontology Egidio Feruglio, led by Dr Jose Luis Carballido and Dr Diego Pol.

 

They unearthed the partial skeletons of seven individuals - about 150 bones in total - all in "remarkable condition".

 

This giant herbivore lived in the forests of Patagonia between 95 and 100 million years ago, based on the age of the rocks in which its bones were found.

Japanese rockstar Yoshiki engages in piano battle with hologram of himself | GizMag.com

Japanese rockstar Yoshiki engages in piano battle with hologram of himself | GizMag.com | jacques bouniard | Scoop.it

Following in the virtual footsteps of Tupac Shakur, at the SXSW festival last weekend Japanese musical icon Yoshiki used a hologram not just in an attempt to add a little flair to his performance, but to indulge those fans who can't quite get enough of him.

 

Yoshiki, a musician, songwriter, composer, record producer, front man of heavy-metal band X Japan and classical soloist, appeared on stage at the music and technology festival to a rousing reception and proceeded to sit himself at one end of a double piano.

 

All appeared normal as Yoshiki began stroking the keys, but when a more clearly defined and life-like Yoshiki emerged from the left of stage, the audience began to grasp they had a one-of-a-kind piano battle on their hands.

 

We're not sure if you'd classify this as a solo or duo performance, but it lasted around two minutes and involved intense playing from equally animated Yoshikis, with gestures even exchanged across the piano top.

 

The unique performance comes as Yoshiki prepares to embark on this first ever classical world tour, due to begin in Costa Mesa, California on April 25.

Jeremy Rifkin : “Ce qui a permis le succès inouï du capitalisme va se retourner contre lui”

Jeremy Rifkin : “Ce qui a permis le succès inouï du capitalisme va se retourner contre lui” | jacques bouniard | Scoop.it

Il y a vingt-cinq ans, c'était la star du ring, le « boss », vainqueur du communisme par K-O ! Aujourd'hui, le capitalisme est un champion usé par la crise, miné par les contradictions et politiquement à bout de souffle. Pour l'économiste américain Jeremy Rifkin, nous assistons, tout simplement, à son éclipse. Dans un livre passionnant – La Nouvelle Société du coût marginal zéro – en librairie le 24 septembre 2014, il raconte le basculement, inévitable, que nous avons déjà commencé à opérer vers un nouveau système de production et de consommation : les « communaux collaboratifs ». Cette troisième voie (au-delà du sempiternel binôme « capitalisme ou socialisme ») est une forme d'organisation sociale fondée sur l'intérêt de la communauté plutôt que sur la seule satisfaction des désirs individuels, et rendue possible par la troisième révolution industrielle, dans laquelle Internet nous a fait entrer. Un nouveau monde émerge, dynamisé par les réseaux sociaux, l'innovation et la culture du partage. Utopie, encore ? Pour Jeremy Rifkin, c'est déjà une réalité. Entretien.

Une culture du son - Pierre-Yves Macé et Magda Kachouche - interview par David Sanson | jacques bouniard | Scoop.it

Fondé en 1958 par Pierre Schaeffer, le GRM fête en ce début d’année ses 50 ans. Lieu de naissance de la musique concrète, où sont passés Luc Ferrari, Michel Chion ou Bernard Parmegiani, le GRM a amorcé, depuis quelques années, un rapprochement avec la scène électronique « pop ».


En 1948, le musicien et théoricien français Pierre Schaeffer accomplit dans un brouillard expérimental solitaire la seule invention musicale qui, dans ce long XXe siècle parsemé de découvertes, peut de bon droit être qualifiée de « révolutionnaire » : la musique concrète. Dix ans plus tard, le même Schaeffer crée, à la suite du plus éphémère GRMC fondé en 1951, le Groupe de Recherches Musicales, centre dédié à la recherche et la création dans le champ musical nouveau (appelée alternativement électroacoustique ou « acousmatique ») née de la rencontre de la musique concrète, de l’elektronische Musik allemande et de la tape music anglo-saxonne....
