The etude by Gyorgy Ligeti I would like you to pay attention to is the second one. It starts at 2'15".
Here is what a competent source has to say about the work:
The third etude, "Touches bloquees" ("Blocked Keys"), uses the same technique that first appeared in "Selbstportrait," the second of the Three Pieces for Two Pianos. Certain keys are held down silently with one hand while the other hand plays a very fast chromatic line on and around the blocked keys, which of course do not sound. The result is a complicated rhythmic pattern that gives the music a somewhat mechanical quality. At first the silent gaps are all the duration of a single eighth, but eventually the gaps are two eighths, then three, and continue to increase in length until the texture becomes increasingly sparse. Again, this etude is about the creation of illusion; we see a continuous pattern of eighth notes on the page, but what results in performance are quirky rhythmic patterns that are not discernible to the eye and would be all but impossible to notate in a more traditional fashion to achieve the desired effect.Actually, it wasn't so much about the listening for me. What put me in a state of awe was the seeing. It is the clear struggle between the hands, the tension between the immobile one and the one that runs crazily above it or under it. Also, the tension of the one that is supposed to stay immobile, simply blocking some keys, but cannot resist the opportunity and spurts out sounds now and again, as if to underline it has total power. And then they switch. And we hear it, we hear this body negiation, we hear it once we see it, once we understand the game, it becomes obvious.
The music becomes obvious. Because it's about music, right?
And the soldier-fingers, constantly attempting to design the space through movement. A movement whose purpose is not something else - like a sound - is a dance. If you ever needed proof, here is one.

Bodykit custom designs generally make Satria FU 150 lansiran performance in 2006 became heavier. But more importantly, present the forms belonging to the cover-body nyeleneh. What is it?. "From the front bodywork which stuck close to the bottom plate to cover the telescopic self-discs, including the side, airscoop and the stern area that looks more gambot," said student SMUN I Padamara this. The more interesting, the connection between the media Bodykit assembled with nut-bolts. So do not converge. The more refreshed, finish painted in white paint combination that gives iamge elegant blue.

Their facilities are located on the property where poet Edna St. Vincent Millay lived at the height of her literary career. They have a seven-acre campus with meadows and forest in Austerlitz, New York, USA, adjacent to the former Millay home and gardens and the exquisite Harvey Mountain State Forest.
The Millay Colony provides food for breakfasts, lunches, and weekend dinners, and will happily respond to vegetarian or other dietary requirements. On Monday through Friday evening meals are prepared by an excellent local chef. There is no obligation, however, to be present with the group at the prepared evening meal. They have a share in a nearby bio-dynamic farm and so the bulk of their food is local and farm-fresh.

Yet again, Maurizio Cattelan achieved his admitted goal: he is on the covers of magazines.
The finger, called L.O.V.E.*, has been erected in front of the Milan stock exchange for the duration of the Fashion Week happening in the city.
Everyone is happy: Cattelan gets his attention, the public is proud of such a daring representative, the city gets its Fashion Week (kind of) publicized, and the brokers... well, the brokers have a good laugh and continue their business as usual.
That is not to say the work is not good. It is poignant. The finger that is sticking is the only one remaining on the hand. The others seem to have been severed. So is this hand telling the bankers to go fuck themselves, or is that the only thing it can say? Or maybe it's that when you have next to nothing, the middle finger is the one to resist longest.
Oh, but of course, it's made of marble and put on a pedestal.
But that, really, is not the work at work here. The work is to have been able to put it in front of the Stock Exchange. To have shown them the finger and have them accept it. This is what makes a real contemporary trickster - not the sculpture, but the context.
"We want to be confirmed as the capital of contemporary art", the city's administrators officially stated, "and we have to not only mediate but also accept what we do not like".
Which is a hilarious comment, and only confirms Cattelan's intelligence. One wonders how he did it. Maybe what he said was, let's cut the crap, it is a criticism, but it will attract more tourists than you can ever imagine, and will not hurt you in any way whatsoever, because no one is going to take their money out of the stocks after seeing my work. On the contrary, the tourists will leave their money in Milan.
But the controversy remains. “It is unacceptable that the City sticks its finger up to the Stock Exchange" – said the councillor for Town Planning Carlo Masseroli in a fervent discussion.
Masseroli says: "the administration cannot be culturally subordinate to a self-styled artist like Cattelan who wants to use Milan to earn money”.
Oh, that's right, Cattelan made money off this! I wonder who payed him.
So the question is, who is Cattelan showing the finger to?
I'm not sure, but the pictures suggest that the finger is in front of the stock exchange. And is not pointing towards it, but from it.
Which could end this text. But will not. Because even if Cattelan laughs in our face, even if he plays a trick on all of us, he still plays out the crucial role of catalyzer - he materializes the tensions that are already there. He makes us go "Hey! Wait a minute!" He sticks the finger where it hurts.
*The title was originally supposed to be "Omnia munda mundis" ("To the pure ones everything is pure").

The difference between the Matic Motorcycles : Yamaha mio, Honda Vario and Suzuki Spin1. Yamaha Mio Best Motor MaticMio can be spelled the star motor matik di Indonesia. How not to launch since this time, the sale of Mio able to push up share sales Yamaha. Presence even make the older brother alias Nouvo become less popular.
That headlamp now uses stacked high and low beams, moving the 600 and 750 visually closer to the 1000. This is no coincidence as the ’11 600/750 identical twins were designed by Shigeru Uchiyama, the same guy who penned the 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000.

This makes the harmonization to be less satisfied. Just be advised that large feet and very long stretch Mio loaded onto a small body. Celebration, yes less so right, Bro!Yet for the last legs, Herry've done a pretty ciamik alteration. Combination of 5-inch wide rim on the front and 8 inches in the rear. rear axle was made down to 40 cm. "It is deliberately made long retreat to reinforce the impression that low rider," said the man was 21 years.
For wheels, Herry also managed to make front and rear combination sepatbor appropriate. "The model works by myself, but little affected in the HD model," he continued.
All had received as a finishing layer of chrome. Well, the more okay dong. Including the exhaust pipe which has also been constrained panjang.
"Shark-style model, all of them accidentally let memorable chromated blink-blink," continued this bachelor. A convenient excuse for low rider theme like this.
Once the election is also steering handlebar stem alias. Although the use of Ninja but after dicustom, its application seems appropriate at this flow.
While the body is only done themed airbrush flames. "Next time made an appropriate body with the legs," said Herry is ready and open for entries received better results.

Oh, and on a different note, here's a little bit of pre-mash-up mashing up, for your listening amusement, the one and only John Oswald:
It is a fascinating feeling, to realize that today's contemporary is tomorrow's retro, that no matter what, everything we wear, listen to, appreciate or create today will be looked at in just a few years with a paternizing, if not condescendent, smile. Timeless art? Pl-lease. The very feeling of them not being timeless, of being dated, is part of the pleasure of appreciating them. Age can work for the work, but it is still at work.
Still sick but getting better. I have a few things to post tomorrow or the day after, mostly new residency deadlines. But today, I just wanted to let you know about a couple things: one, I will unfortunately have to monitor comments again and not let anonymous people comment on my posts because I am getting spammed by stupid people trying to sell things via my blog. Argh. I hate to do that. Anyway, the other thing is that I just wanted to let you know that after my book comes out in 2011, probably next fall, I will start leading memoir and nature writing retreats and workshops in the Berkshires at one of my favorite places in the world, the Staveleigh House. It's run by my friend Ali Winston who is also does animal rescue and takes in various critters (see photo of me and one of the exuberant residents of Staveleigh!) that have been abused or abandoned. You can check out their site here: www.staveleigh.com or click here to see the facebook fan page I just set up for them.
The design you choose will be very important, especially because it will be permanently inked on your body. Before actually going to the tattoo artist to get this done you need to spend some time searching for the perfect image. Make sure that you do not just say "eh this one is good enough." Once you see the right design you will know, there will not be any hesitation. If this happens you will absolutely love your new tattoo and will have a big grin on your face as you show it off to your friends.
