  • On An Overgrown Path: Roma - the forgotten Holocaust victims
    Romani speaking populations migrated outwards from the Balkans reaching northern and western Europe in the 15th century Various groups migrated into Britain via France Germany and Scandinavia from the early 16th century Gypsy communities in countries such as England Wales Spain Portugal and Sweden have given up their language to use the majority language of the surrounding population However these communities have often retained a Romani vocabulary which they use as an in group secret language This uses words derived from Romani but adapted using the sound system and grammatical inflections of the native language Here in England Anglorami is the linguistic term used to describe the para Romani spoken by Gypsies Romani resources Manchester University Romani project with audio files of Romani dialects Romani lexical database from University of Graz English Romani dictionary Future performances of Killimengro this is an important piece of theatre I urge you to see it And I would encourage the many US arts organisations that read this blog to explore ways of bringing it to the audience it deserves across the Atlantic Now playing Bela Bartók s Roumanian Dances with Antal Dorati conducting the Minneapolis Symphony on vinyl LP SRI75105 in glorious Mercury sound in those wonderful days before the wonders of digital encoding and before the benefits of multi tracked and multi miked recordings The seven movement dance suite was originally written for piano and uses tunes transcribed by Bartók from Gypsies in Máramaros in Northern Transylvania The photo to the right shows Bartók in black hat travelling to research Gypsy folk music complete with Edison phonograph Like the Roma Antal Dorati was forced to migrate by political forces Born in Budapest he worked in Dresden before he moved first to Monte Carlo and then to the US where he recorded this wonderful album with the Minneapolis Symphony whose music director he was for eleven years Image credits Belzec from Sinti and Roma teaching resources Gypsy children from Amber Online Gypsy women from University of North Texas Bartók from Good music guide com Any copyrighted material on these pages is included as fair use for the purpose of study review or critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Report broken links missing images and other errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk If you enjoyed this post take An Overgrown Path to Holocaust opera s rare performance Posted by Pliable at Monday June 19 2006 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest 2 comments Anonymous said Very fine article I hope that American producers do see your high recommendation of the theater work cited 10 41 pm St Anthony said Excellent post very interesting about the culture I m from a Romani family myself and have experienced enough prejudice over the years oddly enough as much from the average liberal as from die hard racists I had occasion to write to The Guardian last year over their use of

  • On An Overgrown Path: Music without prior ownership
    and folk This territory was once the property of ECM but as we move into a new decade others are now beating Manfred Eicher at his own game Artistic residencies such as that at Les Escales Saint Nazaire in France which brought Titi Robin and Faiz Ali Faiz together and French labels such as Accords Croisés on which Jaadu Magic is released are the crucible in which this new music is being forged The second decade of the twenty first century is going to be a very exciting time for music savant but perhaps not for classical music In the 1960s young people adopted rock as their music because it came without prior ownership and without performance traditions Young and not so young people are today looking for music to call their own But unless classical music can distance itself from prior ownership innovative projects such as Jaadu Magic which comes with hand baggage only may be the future Jaadu Magic seen in the video above was one of the albums featured in My World of Music on Future Radio on December 26th 2009 Listen to a podcast here More on the Roma the forgotten Holocaust victims here Jaadu Magic was bought at La Friche Librairie Paris Any copyrighted material on these pages is included as fair use for the purpose of study review or critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Wednesday December 23 2009 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels accords croises catholicism ecm faiz ali faiz islam manfred eicher roma sufism titi robin 3 comments Pliable said Here s an interesting and innovative example of classical music making the effort to distance itself from prior ownership http www roundhouse org uk whats on productions oae the night shift 4117 7 48 pm billoo said Dear OP so sorry don t know your name thank you for sharing that and for your wonderful blog Please accept this salaams b 4 18 am Philip said I write only to wish you and your family a fine Christmas and in the New Year whatever it may be you may wish for yourselves And this I do in part because of the great pleasure given to me by your blog its byways its rareities its cogent analysis its muscular common sense Thank you for this Pliable 10 40 am Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown Path Loading Blog Archive 2016 19 February 5 January 14 2015 196 December 21 November 9 October 23 September 24 August 13 July 25 June 12 May 12 April 17 March 3 February 21 January 16 2014 211 December 13 November 23 October 13 September 19 August 17 July 10 June 21 May 27 April 15 March 2 February

  • On An Overgrown Path: Echoes of ECM
    disagreed with Manfred Eicher over the excessive addition of reverberation to his recordings The founder of ECM makes no secret of his label s use of digital reverberation to create its signature sound As he explains in another interview Reverb is used only to draw your final landscape in a mix A natural recording just doesn t exist If sounds and music go through microphones and wires there might be something mysterious once in a while That is Manfred Eicher below pondering the range of digital processing options available to him So how natural is the ECM sound Or is it true a natural recording just doesn t exist With more and more listening being done using iPods and headphones is the ideal of a plausible image of the musicians spread between the speakers as they would be on a concert platform simply redundant Was it so long ago when the sound really mattered My main listening room is equipped with Bowers Wilkins Nautilus 803 speakers powered by an Arcam 10 integrated amplifier Front end sources are Arcam 9 CD player Thorens TD125 Mk II SME Series IIIS Audio Technica AT F3 turntable and Denon TU 260 tuner Sennheiser HD 580 headphones are available for late night listening high quality interconnects are used and power comes via a custom built mains smoother This room is 42 square metres which is largish by UK standards but probably small in American terms It is interesting that this listening room is only slightly smaller than Red Fort Studios Southall 50 sq m which explains the dry sound of Mantra Rainbow Studios Oslo has a much bigger footprint of 180 sq m but the effective volume a key metric for acoustics is many times greater due to the high ceilings Unfortunately despite all the clever things that digital technology can do you can t change the laws of physics which state you need a big space for good recorded sound and big loudspeakers for good reproduced sound Mantra was bought online Any copyrighted material on these pages is included as fair use for the purpose of study review or critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Tuesday May 04 2010 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels ecm lexicon manfred eicher orlando consort pierre boulez rainbow studios oslo red fort studios 3 comments Martin Fritter said Two days ago I had the good fortune to hear the Takacs Quartet give an incendiary performance of the Grosse Fugue I was in the 5th row center in a small dry hall at the University of Colorado a virtually perfect seat There was basically no stereo image I have latterly come to the conclusion that the ideal way to record music is in mono Lovely as many ECM records may sound I have never heard

  • On An Overgrown Path: Celebrating with Saint Sarah
    Overgrown Path started with a pilgrimage from East Anglia to the Camargue and this CD of gypsy music from the Camargue brings the journey full circle as it was recorded here in East Anglia in the south transept of Ely Cathedral by the enterprising Lantern Productions The sound is excellent and the music making is wonderful You can only buy it from the Lantern website or Ely Cathedral shop but it is well worth seeking out Provence is a veritable bouillabaisse of races religions and legends My version above is the commonly accepted version of the legend of St Sarah But there are several alternatives One claims that Sarah was a native of Provence born into a noble race and queen of her tribe who welcomed the Marys and was converted to Christianity by them Another legend claims that Sarah was Egyptian and abbess of a large convent in Libya while a third says that she was a Persian martyr Bill Clinton Charlie Chaplin Rita Hayworth and Shayne Ward all claim to be descended from gypsies but the the Romas still remain the forgotten diaspora of Europe At the time of the discovery of the relics of the Marys in the 1440s there was a convergence of Romas in Provence with groups coming from as far afield as North Africa Spain Greece and the Balkans Now read about Roma the forgotten Holocaust victims Header photo by Pliable September 2006 Any copyrighted material on these pages is included as fair use for the purpose of study review or critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Report broken links missing images and other errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Friday December 22 2006 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels camargue cappella romana flamenco france guitar gypsies les saintes maries de la mer manitas de plata saint sarah sinti No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown Path Loading Blog Archive 2016 19 February 5 January 14 2015 196 December 21 November 9 October 23 September 24 August 13 July 25 June 12 May 12 April 17 March 3 February 21 January 16 2014 211 December 13 November 23 October 13 September 19 August 17 July 10 June 21 May 27 April 15 March 2 February 23 January 28 2013 257 December 21 November 17 October 31 September 8 August 35 July 24 June 24 May 8 April 31 March 8 February 24 January 26 2012 276 December 22 November 25 October 23 September 12 August 20 July 27 June 27 May 7 April 32 March 27 February 24 January 30 2011 299 December 22 November 21 October 42 September 12 August 24 July 38 June 29 May 5 April 34 March 9 February 33 January 30 2010 281 December 37 November 20 October 36 September 7 August
