Hamburg: ElbJazz Festival 2010 (28./29.05.)

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on April 28, 2010

2 Days – 15 venues – 45 concerts

ELBJAZZ will take place for the first time on 28th/29th May 2010. It is the initiator’s declared goal to establish an annual jazz festival in the city of Hamburg that is going to make its way as a permanent fixture on the international festival landscape, impressing with a unique diversity of venues, all within reach of the port of Hamburg.

All stages will be connected via ferries, allowing the visitor to enjoy not only the  music but the city itself. Musicians of international reputation, highlights of the vivid Hamburg jazz scene and promising newcomers will represent the multifaceted world of jazz music.

3 artists from India…

Arun Ghosh | Rudresh Mahanthappa | Trilok Gurtu

. .

  • Arun Ghosh (Clarinet) & Sextett

    date: 29.05.2010
    beginning: 19:00 (07:00 pm)
    venue/stage: Museum Ship Cap San Diego

.
BBC-Worldwide-Guru Gilles Peterson counts himself among the legions of fans of this clarinetist with the unmistakable Indian roots. Expect urban Hip Hop sounds, raga-ing Tabla-rhythms, even a surprising tendency towards rock or ambient-music. Swing or Klezmer? Dub-Reggae or bold Avantgarde? Anything goes for Ghosh & Co.!

  • Rudresh Mahanthappa (Saxophone) & MSG

date: 28.05.2010
beginning: 20:30 (08:30 pm)
venue: Blohm + Voss shipyards

.
If you accentuate Mahanthappa on the second syllable, but still don’t expect Indian Fusion-Jazz, you are in perfect hands with this alto-sax-player, who was crowned a “rising star” by Downbeat magazine. Exciting rhythms from the (Irish) bass-player and the (Dutch) drummer build an earthy foundation for the vanguard freedom of their improvisations.

Opening concert

.
Every jazz-heart beats faster, once the eighteen members of this “highly distinguished ensemble of Jazz-soloists” start to play with the Percussion-Guru Trilok Gurtu and the drum-master Simon Phillips. “The music will be danceable – for Jazz- and Pop-people – and even classically Indian”, says Gurtu. “That‘s good for the brain.”

Raga CDs des Monats (04/10): MUSIK & SPRACHE (Teil 2/2)

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on April 20, 2010

Die Beziehung zwischen Musik und Sprache, zwischen Klang und gesprochenem oder gesungenem Wort ist eine Besondere.

Die Grammatiker des Sanskrits, der alten indischen Wissenschaftssprache, betrachten Musik und Sprache als divergierende Aspekte ein und desselben Phänomens.

Mit der indisch klassischen Musik (Hindustani, Carnatic) gibt es eine Vielzahl von Gemeinsamkeiten unter der Überschrift “Musik und Sprache“, die auch die Grundlagen der abendländischen Harmonielehre sind, deren Beginn man mit dem Begründer der mathematischen Analyse der Musik – Pythagoras von Samos – und seinen empirischen Beweisführung der harmonischen Intervalle auf etwa mehr als 500 Jahre vor Christi Geburt datieren kann.

Musik scheint sich weit weniger diffus in uns abzubilden, als bisher angenommen. Vielmehr wird unsere Wahrnehmung von Tönen durch sehr genau umrissene Möglichkeiten und Grenzen definiert. Dem audiomentalen System kommt eine weit aus größere Bedeutung zu, als man bis vor Kurzem angenommen hatte.

Sendetermine…
Teil 2: 20ster April 2010 21:00 Uhr (MESTZ)
( Teil 1: 16ter März 2010 – 21:00 Uhr  METZ )
broadcasting plan | streaming (Internet Radio & Mobile Radio) | podCast

In Teil 1 stellt IMC – India meets Classic die Struktur von Musik und Sprache dar. In Teil 2 werden die sozialpsychologische Bedeutung von Musik für das Individuum und seine Interaktionsprozesse aus seiner geschichtlichen Entwicklung und aus dem Wesen der Musik näher beleuchten.

Die Wahrnehmung von Musik und das aktiv Musizieren, das zeigen uns jüngste Studien, beziehen nahezu alle Regionen des Gehirns mit ein. Die weitverbreitete Annahme, dass Musik in der rechten Gehirnhälfte und Sprache in der linken Gehirnhälfte verarbeitet wird, war schlichtweg falsch. Die aktuellen Forschungen zeigen auch, dass Sprache und Musik nahezu gleich verarbeitet werden. Der tiefgreifende, emotionale Gehalt der Musik, von Glückseligkeit bis zur Traurigkeit wirkt besonders stimulierend auf unser Gehirn mit für den Musikhörenden häufig körperlich intensiv wahrnehmbaren Reaktionen.

Musik schlägt sich sichtbar in unserem Leben nieder, in Gehirnaktivitäten, die heute mit modernen, bildgebenden Verfahren messbar sind und mit der (funktionellen) Magnetresonanz-Tomographie (MRT) oder Magnetenzephalographie (MET) plastisch sichtbar gemacht werden können (Bild s. u.).

Raga CDs of the months (04/10): Music & Language (part 2 of 2)

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on April 17, 2010

The relationship between music and language, between sounds and the spoken word or vocals is a very special one.

Busto di Pitagora. Copia romana di originale greco. Musei Capitolini, Roma.

The grammarians of Sanskrit, the ancient Indian science language regard music and language as divergent aspects of one and the same phenomena.

With Indian classial music (Hindustani, Carnatic) there is a multiplicity in common under the topic to “music and language “, which is the bases of the occidental harmonics, dated back to the founder of the mathematical analysis of music by Pythagoras of Samos who had evidenced empirically the harmonic intervals – approximately written before 500 B.C. .

Music seems to be reflected far less vaguely in us than it had been granted so far. Rather our perceptions of sounds are defined very exactly by outlined possibilities and borders. The audiomental system has greater importance than one had assumed recently.

As shown by recent studies the perception of music and ‘music making’ incorporate nearby almost all regions of the brain. The widespread acceptance that music is processed in the right brain hemisphere and language in the left had completely been wrong. The current research shows that language and music are assimilated almost identically. The profound emotional content of music, from felicity to sadness affects particularly stimulating our brain and also produces frequently physically intensively perceptible reactions to the listener.

Music settles visibly in our life, in brain activities which are measurable nowadays and made vividly visible with modern medical imaging techniques e.g. (functional) magnetic resonance tomography (MRT) or Magnetoencephalography (MEG), see picture below.

In part 1 of 2 IMC – India meets Classic presented the structure of music & language. The actual broadcasting (part 2) brings light up the social aspects influencing music as a communication form.

Note: IMC OnAir’s radio show “music and language” in two parts (2x 58 min.) represents a fundamental introduction regarding the multiplicity of sciences involved (music ethnology, anthropology, language and social sciences, neuro sciences, psychology, computer sciences (artificial intelligence) among others).

journalismfund.eu: New call for proposals and new options

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on April 17, 2010

BRUSSELS – 17 / 4 / 2010 – Journalismfund.eu now can distribute another round of research grants. If journalists have a good idea for an investigative story but lack time or money to carry out the research, they can apply for funding. As a new option this call not only offers support for cross-border stories but also for European affairs stories.

By Brigitte Alfter

The next round for proposals to apply for a research grant from Journalismfund.eu is now open. The overall amount to be distributed this time will be € 25.000, the deadline for applications is June 14th 2010 at 12 o’clock noon.

For the first time we now offer two types of grants: One for cross-border reporting, and one for stories about European affairs. Read the rules for applications and assessment criteria. Applications are only accepted via the online application form.

Journalismfund.eu has had some very interesting applications, two of them are already published, one unveiled terrible working conditions of trafficked workers, and one unveiled dodgy business schemes in several countries.

However the criteria did not allow for journalism where only one colleague was doing the research on a European subject. We hope, that the new choice between cross-border reporting and European affairs stories will allow a broader variety of stories in this call for proposals.

With this call we also introduce an almost two months application period. The prolonged time to write the application will hopefully allow for some well-prepared applications. In the last round the jury had to turn down some interesting looking applications, because they were not clear enough or left too many open questions.

The outcome of the jury meeting will be announced on June 22nd.

In order to help applicants with the formalities of their applications, there will be arranged a series of skype chats, where interested journalists are welcome to reserve a time slot to get one-to-one advice about the application procedure.

The skype sessions will be arranged on April 28th, May 7th and May 10th , each of the days from 9am to 12 am Brussels time. The skype address is journalismfund.eu. If there is further need, further dates will be announced. Please reserve a time for the chat via brigitte.alfter@journalismfund.eu. Of course interested colleagues are also welcome to send questions directly by mail.

The new features for for this application are another step in our development of the best practice for this model of distributing European grants for journalistic research. The development of Journalismfund.eu and the research grants are supported by the Norwegian Fritt Ord Foundation and the Open Society Media Program aswell as via the Fonds Pascal Decroos by the government of Flanders in Belgium.
