Oskar Schlemmer - Revisiting Ballet

Oskar Schlemmer had a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to art, being a sculptor, a painter and a designer as well. However, the genres that he is most remembered for are theater and ballet, which were brought to greater heights during his engagement at the school. He was both a choreographer and a costume designer, which helped both of these areas advance and expand their fields of research, loosen their boundaries and erase edges between arts as independent disciplines. Schlemmer’s most famous work is Triadisches Ballett, in which costumes gradually transform actors into geometrical shapes on stage. This work had announced a change in performing arts, which we were able to witness later on, and we see it today as well.

Projects 107: Lone Wolf Recital Corps is now open! Honoring the legacy of Terry Adkins’s multidisciplinary performance collective, Projects 107 consists of a gallery exhibition and a set of five corresponding performances, marking the first museum exhibition to reunite the Corps since Adkins’s death.

Learn more about this mysterious collective of artistic collaborators at mo.ma/projects107.

Hi! I was hoping you could help me find a fic. Stiles is older than Derek by a few years, Derek is in high school and Stiles is in college I think. Stiles was in the same class as Derek's older brother. Derek hangs out at the library where Stiles is working on his summer break and its a kinda slow burn falling for each other. It was really sweet and I'm so desperate to re-read it but just cannot find it. Thank you so much in advance :)

I know this one! - Anastasia

Stiles is a slightly-older-and-very-sexy librarian and Derek has a thirst for knowledge.

anonymous asked:

I'm autistic. I want to work in psychiatry as a therapist, but I'm worried that my lack of social skill will keep me from doing well. Talking, reading body language, and reassuring others have never been my strong suits. Still, this career path is important to me because therapy really helped me, and I want to help others in the same way. Are there resources for ND folx trying to go into psychiatry? Any tips for what I can do to prepare myself? Should I just go into something else?

I don’t know of any specific resources, but there are many ND people in the the medical, psychology, and education fields. My own focus is sociology, however, my intent for a masters or Ph.D. is autism research from a multidisciplinary perspective, and I expect to work on projects with psychology Ph.D. candidates that are sponsored by psychology professors.

The biggest thing that you can do, and probably the most important thing, is learning to suffer the ableism, and when and how to pick the fights that you can win or when and how to be quietly subversive.

There are a lot of things you will have to put up with to get the degree you want, and you will have to learn how to navigate all the medical ableism and the medical model of disability. But once you do, the reward is that you get to fight to change the system from the inside.

That’s a very powerful thing for our community.

Followers, any of you out there taking the nothing about us without us approach and entering a field of study or a profession that we autistics often make use of?

Weird question, I noticed you said you work on collective memory (yay!). I'm thinking of writing my senior undergraduate thesis on the memory of the Third Reich and the Holocaust in the two German states. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for just general readings on collective memory.

Hello, first of all, many thanks for your question. I’m actually very exited to be asked about something that relates to my thesis in some way.

Second, this is such a great and interesting topic! You should have no problem finding works in which to situate your argument. There is such a large historiography and collective memory and commemoration!

Third, before I make my suggestions, I would advise you to browse the blog @historicity-was-already-taken, the moderator is a public historian who is well-versed in these topics. You might find some works in her bibliography useful

Now, on the question of collective memory in the two Germanys and in the re-united nation:

As you can see, some of these are a bit dated but it’s important to recognize key contributions such as those in your own work. You can then supplement you paper with more recent monographies and articles. 

Now, as for works on collective memory:

*You will notice that while some scholars talk about “collective memory” others refer to it as “cultural memory,” “social memory” or even “collected memory.” Memory studies is a multidisciplinary field. Scholars have yet to better theorize it. Although you don’t need to take position on this debate (especially not for a paper of this size), it might be a good idea to explain, even if very briefly,  why you favour a particular term. It may simply be that you want to align your work with that of a particular scholar, make that clear in your introduction.

Finally, I hope she won’t mind but I know @virtual-tonks is German, perhaps a little conversation with her might help you better imagine your project.

That is all. I hope you find this useful! Good luck on your paper!

10 neoclassical composers who will blow your mind

Written by Ramona Curmi

These classical wunderkinds prove that contemporary music isn’t always spiky, melody-lite and inaccessible to the average music lover. 

Hailing from the country that has more musicians per capita than any place in the world, Jóhann Jóhannsson is an Icelandic composer and electronic producer. His work draws influence from minimalism and baroque, and uses classical orchestration with electronics to build ambience. His elegant sound swells with emotion, haunting the soul and evoking feelings of melancholia.

Composer and pianist Max Richter has an immense portfolio. He’s composed countless film scores, collaborated on albums with 90s drum and bass legend Roni Size, written an opera, composed albums of his own heady blend of post-ambient soundscapes and electronic atmosphere, and most recently has Recomposed Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Winter III is his favourite movement from the album, and we agree - have a listen.

Nils Frahm’s musical influences are diverse. He was trained in piano by the last scholar of Tchaikovsky, and grew up listening neo-classical and jazz legends like Steve Reich, Arvo Pärt and Chick Corea but was also heavily influenced by the trance sound of the 90s. Frahm’s curiosity for creating new sounds led him to apply delays and analogue synthesizers to his solo piano works, to layer and blend a unique brand of classically-infused lush, emotional soundscapes.

A multidisciplinary artist, Mira Calix’s work moves from ambient electronica and sound+art installations to classical instrumentation for small orchestras. Having released music on the Warp label since 1998, her early music tends towards electronica. Recent years have seen Mira incorporate classical orchestration into her work for installation pieces, film soundtracks, theatre and opera.

 
Oliver Coates plays the cello and produces electronic music. He’s collaborated with contemporary artists, bands and ensembles like London Sinfonietta, Mira Calix and Boards of Canada, Johnny Greenwood, Goldie, Massive Attack and Sigur Rós as well as more traditional composers such as Thomas Ades. His music can move from drone-like industrial sounds, toward ambient treatments of classical instrumentation, peppered with micro electronics.

Eluvium, aka Matthew Cooper, is a man of many monikers - each incarnation of his musical self renders an intricately different sound. His symphonic guitar pieces have been compared to the work of Brian Eno, with twinges of Aphex Twin-esque electronics. Working an experimentally, minimal vibe, Eluvium’s music infuses wailing guitars, emotive pianos and classical instrumentation to create ambient washes that send shivers up your spine.

Hauschka is a German experimental pianist and electronic producer who specialises in the art of the ‘prepared piano’, that is, treating the hammers and strings in order to produce a desired sound. His compositions are reminiscent of composers Erik Satie or Philip Glass, taking classical techniques and seamlessly blending them with pop and electronic sensibilities. Check out this beautifully produced video of a prepared piano in action.


Another multi-talented composing wunderkind, Nico Muhly spent six years working with Philip Glass and has collaborated with myriad popular artists from Bjork, Grizzly Bear and Antony and the Johnsons to Sufjan Stevens and, believe it or not, Usher. He’s written for a number of films and just recently composed a full opera. He commonly blends traditionally composed classical for small ensembles with electronics.

 
Ólafur Arnalds is a multi-instrumentalist and producer from Iceland who composes music primarily for strings and piano, mixing them with loops and beats. Often cited alongside contemporary Nils Frahm, Arnalds music is as sweeping and emotive, but he came to the neoclassical genre in a slightly more roundabout way. He was commissioned to write for strings and piano when fellow rock musicians heard his solo demo…and the rest is history. Arnalds has been writing and producing solo albums since 2008, has written for film and recently collaborated with the above-mentioned Frahms.

 

An American chamber music group, Rachel’s is heavily influenced by the sound of 20th century classical composition including, most notably, the work of British composer and film scorer, Michael Nyman. The result is a dark fusion of classical and experimental sounds. Sadly, Rachel’s founding member, Jason Noble, passed away in 2012 of a rare form of cancer.

ghostbirbs  asked:

Duftmon, what genres do you like to read?

Duftmon: Greetings. That is an excellent question…!

Duftmon: I enjoy many different genres of literature. In particular, nonfiction appeals to me. I revel in reading lengthy treatises on strategy and tactics, as well as academic critiques. I especially enjoy it when the authors are still alive, so that I am able to pen a response with my own views and engage in an epistolary debate with them. As you can imagine, many of the example cases are rooted in history, so I also enjoy reading about the history of the Digital World. It isn’t simply strategy that excites me, however. I also enjoy reading textbooks about the natural sciences, and sometimes theology on a rainy day. I like to learn new things and use that knowledge to counter foolish superstition and falsehoods with facts. In university, I was an multidisciplinary student, I focused on many different fields, including strategy, the natural sciences, politics, history, and a bit of theology and literature. I have come to enjoy many different books in my time there,

I do dabble in fiction as well. While it is often non-factual, I can understand the value of fiction. It can be an appealing pastime. There is something to be said about getting lost in a good book. The best novels are the ones that use literary techniques in a way that makes one think outside of the box. My personal favourite fiction genres are the following:

Mystery and detective novels - I enjoy attempting to solve the mystery myself before the characters do. They pique my sense of curiosity.

Historical fiction - This genre can be an insightful glimpse into the past when particularly well-researched. Bad examples of this genre are those that have done no real research and are merely using a past time as an exotic setting.

Science fiction - I prefer hard science fiction of the Metal Empire school. Although some critics claim it to be dense, technical, and dispassionate, I personally find those qualities appealing when done well. The machines of the Metal Empire have a reputation for being mindless cogs, however, they do have some potential for creativity despite some of their otherwise unimaginative methods.

Political thrillers - These can be quite interesting when constructed in a logical and historically-based way. They work best when they are not so ridiculous as to go beyond the realms of feasibility.

Heroic adventure epics - I admit, when I was young, this was my favourite genre. It excited my imagination and… I suppose it served as inspiration, somewhat… I enjoyed the idea of being one who could go on grandiose quests to save the world. It is a rather laughable notion now. I was young and idealistic. The world is not so simple. There are so many other things to consider apart from simply destroying the evil overlord… Nevertheless, I suppose this genre has a special place in my mind.

I do not isolate myself to just these genres, of course. A good mind tries many different books, even if many of them prove to be abysmal. It is a part of the experience of reading.

I appreciate the question. The written works hold importance to me, so I can easily respond in detail.

Sincerely,

Duftmon

Royal Knight, and Chief Strategist of the Order
