"Taruskin's work is a major contribution to thinking about music in the broadest sense. The book is lucid, powerful, varied, self-aware, and courageous. It is the very best work being done today, not just in musicology, but in any discipline."—Michael Beckerman, author of New Worlds of Dvorák

Eddie Ayres has a lifetime of musical experience - from learning the viola as a child in England and playing with the Hong Kong Philharmonic for many years, to learning the cello in his thirties and landing in Australia to present an extremely successful ABC Classic FM morning radio show. But all of this time Eddie was Emma Ayres. In 2014 Emma was spiralling into a deep depression, driven by anguish about her gender. She quit the radio, travelled, and decided on a surprising path to salvation - teaching music in a war zone. Emma applied for a position at Dr Sarmast's renowned Afghanistan National Institute of Music in Kabul, teaching cello to orphans and street kids. In Danger Music, Eddie takes us through the bombs and chaos of Kabul, into the lives of the Afghan children who are transported by Bach, Abba, Beethoven and their own exhilarating Afghan music. Alongside these epic experiences, Emma determines to take the final steps to secure her own peace; she becomes the man always there inside - Eddie.

This book marks the tenth anniversary of The Grey Album. The online release and circulation of what Danger Mouse called his 'art project' was an unexpected watershed in the turn-of-the-century brawls over digital creative practice. The album's suppression inspired widespread digital civil disobedience and brought a series of contests and conflicts over creative autonomy in the online world to mainstream awareness. The Grey Album highlighted, by its very form, the profound changes wrought by the new technology and represented the struggle over the tectonic shifts in the production, distribution and consumption of music. But this is not why it matters. The Grey Album matters because it is more than just a clever, if legally ambiguous, amalgam. It is an important and compelling case study about the status of the album as a cultural form in an era when the album appears to be losing its coherence and power. Perhaps most importantly, The Grey Album matters because it changes how we think about the traditions of musical practice of which it is a part. Danger Mouse created a broad, inventive commentary on forms of musical creativity that have defined all kinds of music for centuries: borrowing, appropriation, homage, derivation, allusion and quotation. The struggle over this album wasn't just about who gets to use new technology and how. The battle over The Grey Album struck at the heart of the very legitimacy of a long recognised and valued form of musical expression: the interpretation of the work of one artist by another.

This is the first book on Danger Danger, charting their life via researched history and words from all the members, from their early days as Hotshot to their quasi-reunion via the Defiants. This is an unauthorized fan publication. Many critics lump them in with their 1980's peers, but further listening makes it evident that Danger Danger had so much more to offer. While in the glam metal bubble their many textures got lost, only to then reinvent themselves once the grunge wave hit the musical shores. While the members have worked with Michael Bolton, Billy Sheehan, Motley Crue, Peter Criss, Alice Cooper, White Lion, David Lee Roth, Y&T, Megadeth, Joan Jett, Asia, Dee Snider, and Dio, among others. Now comes the history of Steve West, Bruno Ravel, Ted Poley, Paul Laine, Mike Pont, Phil Naro, Rob Marcello, Andy Timmons, Tony ""Bruno"" Rey, Al Pitrelli, Kasey Smith; touring members Steven Mazza of the Ted Poley Band, Steve Brown of Trixter, Scott Brown of Trooper; and roadie Kelly Nichels later of L.A. Guns.

Twentieth-Century Music Theory and Practice introduces a number of tools for analyzing a wide range of twentieth-century musical styles and genres. It includes discussions of harmony, scales, rhythm, contour, post-tonal music, set theory, the twelve-tone method, and modernism. Recent developments involving atonal voice leading, K-nets, nonlinearity, and neo-Reimannian transformations are also engaged. While many of the theoretical tools for analyzing twentieth century music have been devised to analyze atonal music, they may also provide insight into a much broader array of styles. This text capitalizes on this idea by using the theoretical devices associated with atonality to explore music inclusive of a large number of schools and contains examples by such stylistically diverse composers as Paul Hindemith, George Crumb, Ellen Taffe Zwilich, Steve Reich, Michael Torke, Philip Glass, Alexander Scriabin, Ernest Bloch, Igor Stravinsky, Béla Bartók, Sergei Prokofiev, Arnold Schoenberg, Claude Debussy, György Ligeti, and Leonard Bernstein. This textbook also provides a number of analytical, compositional, and written exercises. The aural skills supplement and online aural skills trainer on the companion website allow students to use theoretical concepts as the foundation for analytical listening.

With the increasingly important role of psychosocial interventions in the treatment of schizophrenia and other mental illness, many interventions have been adequately researched and standardized to meet the criteria for evidence-based practice. Music therapy is one such modality, which is viewed as another therapeutic form of intervention. However, there remains no resource to guide music therapists in the implementation of appropriate evidence-based techniques. This book develops such a resource, which matches psychosocial goals with appropriate music therapy interventions across the domains of functioning. This resource has the potential to provide immediate and long-term support to clinicians and their clients. It may also serve as a template to guide music therapy research, by identifying applications which have yet to be empirically studied. There are many components which are discussed to prove from a scientific and a spiritual view that music can be used as a therapeutic means for those suffering with schizophrenia and similar mental health illness. A brief review of other mental health illnesses and the role the church plays in providing effective support also is included. Pastors have been looked down at, as though they are the door mat of society. This has placed a stigma upon many creating a restriction as to what they should and shouldn?t do. However, a new breed of pastors is rising up with an internal drive to make a difference both in the church and in the society. They are destroying the stigma that has been created to change our world and impact our communities including the mental health. We have learned from every culture and ethnic group how music is an important part of daily living. Music is unique in every person?s life. It is possible that God created music to calm the mind and help mankind deal with their every day stressors. This book is an educational tool to help individuals understand schizophrenia and other serious mental illness. It?s a book everyone should have to understand themselves and others.

A dramatic account of life in Czechoslovakia's great capital during the Nazi Protectorate With this successor book to Prague in Black and Gold, his account of more than a thousand years of Central European history, the great scholar Peter Demetz focuses on just six short years—a tormented, tragic, and unforgettable time. He was living in Prague then—a "first-degree half-Jew," according to the Nazis' terrible categories—and here he joins his objective chronicle of the city under German occupation with his personal memories of that period: from the bitter morning of March 15, 1939, when Hitler arrived from Berlin to set his seal on the Nazi takeover of the Czechoslovak government, until the liberation of Bohemia in April 1945, after long seasons of unimaginable suffering and pain. Demetz expertly interweaves a superb account of the German authorities' diplomatic, financial, and military machinations with a brilliant description of Prague's evolving resistance and underground opposition. Along with his private experiences, he offers the heretofore untold history of an effervescent, unstoppable Prague whose urbane heart went on beating despite the deportations, murders, cruelties, and violence: a Prague that kept its German- and Czech-language theaters open, its fabled film studios functioning, its young people in school and at work, and its newspapers on press. This complex, continually surprising book is filled with rare human detail and warmth, the gripping story of a great city meeting the dual challenge of occupation and of war.
