@HiddenCash

A new Twitter trend is sweeping the globe. It started with one anonymous Twitter user with the handle @HiddenCash stashing money in various locations around San Francisco, California, and then tweeting clues to its whereabouts for followers to find, and in days sparked a slew of copycat accounts around the globe hosting similar cash hunts. The man who started it all claims to be a successful real estate investor who is trying to give back with this unconventional philanthropic campaign and inspire a movement of out-of-the-box charitable giving. So far, he seems to be doing just that. More… Discuss

Léo FERRE (2/10) : Vingt ans / La chambre / Le scaphandrier


Léo FERRE (2/10) : Vingt ans / La chambre / Le scaphandrier

Léo Ferré (24 August 1916 – 14 July 1993) was a Monegasque poet, composer and a dynamic and controversial live performer whose career in France dominated the years after the Second World Waruntil his death. He released some forty albums over this period, composing the music and the majority of the lyrics. He released many hit singles, particularly between 1960 and the mid-seventies. Some of his songs have become classics of the French chanson repertoire, such as Avec le temps, C’est extra or Jolie Môme.

Along with Georges BrassensJacques Brel and Serge Gainsbourg, he is considered one of the greatest French singer-songwriters of all times, but unlike Brel and Gainsbourg, or even Charles Aznavour, his songs are very little known in the English-speaking world. Ferré was an anarchist; he may be the greatest French protest singer ever.

Ferré’s lyrics were extremely incisive and tuned in to the issues of the day, but also astonishingly poetic. He mixed revolt with love and melancholy, sophisticated lyricism with slang and shouts, rhyming verse with prose monologues. He moved from music-hall to symphonic music, breaking free from the traditional song structure, inventing his own musical territory, powerfully dramatic and unique. He also popularized the French poètes maudits, such as François VillonCharles BaudelairePaul Verlaine, and Arthur Rimbaud, as well as great French poets from the 20th century like Guillaume Apollinaire and Louis Aragon, by setting into music many of their poems.

Listen to all the extracts from “Visioni”:http://www.youtube.com/playlist?featu…

SFEM and Enrica Ciccarelli were originally brought together by a shared passion for music and uncompromising quality: this is the basis of their artistic marriage.

The resulting project, involving SFEM’s Team and italian Pianist Enrica Ciccarelli kicked off in 2011 and aims to reissue some of Enrica’s earlier recordings, as well as new ones, especially arranged for this series and coproduced by Musicassoluta.

Since May 2013, when the project was officially presented at La Scala Shop in Milan, the first two recordings are available in shops and on Amazon.

This is an extrat from “Visioni”.
The two sections of this cd are entirely different and yet connected.

Schumann’s Kreisleriana is the musical expression of a delirious world of madness and desperate obsessions, hallucinations and shattered emotions. Imprisoned by the sheer force of its own genius, the composer’s mind swings wildly between opposite extremes, at times feverish or resigned, dreamy or terrified, tormented by nightmarish visions.

Mussorgsky‘s Pictures at an Exhibition are not as frightening or intimidating and yet they are vivid images that come to life in music These images, though, are more firmly rooted in the real world. Hartmann’s drawings provided the inspiration for this collection: Mussorgsky shaped them into sound, conjuring up an exhibition of musical portraits. Visual perceptions occasion intimate reflections on life, death and art.

 

DOES FACEBOOK BREED DISCONTENT?


Does Facebook Breed Discontent?

Facebook connects people all around the globe, but this may not be a good thing. It appears that, in helping us keep up with what is going on in the lives of friends and family, Facebook also stirs up negative feelings about our own lots in life. Researchers found that the more young people use Facebook, the lower their sense of well-being and satisfaction with life becomes. However, there is also a growing body of research showing that Facebook positively affects its users. The conflicting findings serve as a reminder that social networking technology is still relatively new and its effects are not yet fully understood. More… Discuss
