  • On An Overgrown Path: Into Great Silence
    is the ability to breathe to pause to hold a note suspended The inexperienced player tends to rush through to get the notes right But without the silence there is no real music just a dead sequence of sounds Silence creates rhythm and cycles without which there is no life as the old wise man in the Bible puts it To every thing there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven there is a time to be born and a time to die a time to break down and a time to build up a time to weep and a time to laugh a time to mourn and a time to dance Without the pauses the breathing space the in between times there is no harmony no creation no unfolding of life It is not by chance that language has the expression a pregnant pause All creative change needs this space for reflection this empty time when the old way of being is no more and the new is not yet We ignore this at our peril and our culture which constantly rushes into action does not seem to be able to produce any viable durable change only vacillation between extremes Aude Gotto writes in the Spring newsletter of the King of Hearts Centre for people and the Arts in Norwich Into Great Silence is released on DVD in the UK on May 23 and on October 23 in the US Now read Aude writing about India All the stunning images are stills from the film by director Philip Gröning Any copyrighted material on these pages is included for 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 Thursday April 05 2007 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels aude gotto carthusian order cinema king of hearts norwich la grande chatreuse Monastic Orders philip groning 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

  • On An Overgrown Path: The Art of Byzantium
    century music for the oud played by Necati Çelik The Arabic word al ud meaning the wood is the root for both the words oud and lute The oud originated in ancient Egypt and migrated to the West via the Crusades to become the lute Played with a plectrum the oud has eleven strings and does not use frets The absence of frets allows the microtones of the traditional Arabic Maqam modal system to be played The concept of microtones which originated in the 14th century has re emerged as a tool for contemporary composers see my article on James Woods Hildegard Necati Çelik below was born in the Turkish province of Konya This is home to the Sufi Mevlevi Order that I wrote about recently and Çelik has performed in the Mevlevi rituals as an oud player Five Turkish composers are featured on the CD They range from one of the leading figures of Turkish music Tanburi Cemil Bey who died in 1916 to Reşat Aysu who was active until the end of the 20th century This Overgrown Path has travelled from the 5th to the 21st century So here to finish on a suitably topical note is a link to a YouTube video of oud player Mehmet Polat And here is a link to another website dedicated to the oud Now see the art of the mosque in Istanbul Any copyrighted material on these pages is included for 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 Wednesday April 04 2007 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels Andronikos II Palaiologos byzantine chora museum constantinople istanbul kariye camii mevlevi order Necati Çelik ottoman empire oud sufism Theodore Metochites turkey 2 comments Robert said A beautiful little article both the writing and the pictures thank you The oud performance by Mehmet Polat is an absolute joy too The obviously non tempered tuning reminds me of a concert of Turkish music I heard some years ago in Boston The program alluded to a tuning system with 7 divisions to the whole step and this really bothered the Swiss gentleman sitting next to me When I wasn t able to give him a satisfactory explanation I remember him sputtering But it s not RATIONAL pronounced RAYtional and for better or worse the accent was an important part of the overall effect So much for logic 8 18 am Pliable said Email received Hello I enjoyed your entry on The Art of Byzantium I was particularly taken by the YouTube video of the oud player who you identify as Mehmet Polat He s actually Rahim AlHaj an Iraqi who s been living in the US more or less in exile I think it s fair to say since the invasion I realized

  • On An Overgrown Path: Simon Rattle revives contemporary composer
    judge yourself how good Goldschmidt s music is by listening to The Goldschmidt Album This 1996 Decca CD features the composer s music conducted by Simon Rattle Yakov Kreizberg and Goldschmidt himself Rattle was so keen to champion Goldschmidt s music that he persuaded EMI to release him from his exclusive contract to record his 20 minute contribution to the album The CD was an early release in a Decca series Entartete Musik Degenerate music featuring works suppressed by the Third Reich The first release in the much hyped series was the opera Jonny spielt auf which I wrote about recently Its composer Ernst Krenek studied with Franz Schreker as did Berthold Goldschmidt But more than ten years later the Decca website only lists four titles in the series and neither The Goldschmidt Album nor Jonny spielt auf are among them although the Goldschmidt CD is available from Amazon resellers Once again Entartete Musik has been suppressed but this time by the corporate planners within Decca s parent Universal Music Now read about another forgotten victim of fascism Any copyrighted material on these pages is included for 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 Tuesday April 03 2007 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels bbc proms bertholdt goldschmidt decca deryck cooke ernst krenek fascism franz schreker john drummond simon rattle third reich yakoz kreizberg 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 37 July 27 May 17 April 33 March 12 February 26 January 29 2009 367 December 22 November 23 October 33 September 7 August 35 July 30 May 42 April 39 March 41 February 47 January 48 2008 476 December 38 November 40 October 57 September 39 August 36 July 42 June 9 May 54 April 41 March 44 February
