Music of Athens, Georgia

The music of Athens, Georgia, includes a wide variety of popular music and was an important part of the early evolution of alternative rock and New Wave. The city is well known as the home of chart-topping bands like R.E.M. and the B-52's, and several long-time indie rock groups. Athens hosts the Athens Symphony Orchestra and other music institutions, as well as prominent local music media, such as the college radio station WUOG. Much of the modern Athens music scene is based around students from the large University of Georgia campus in the city. The University sponsors Western classical performances and groups specializing in other styles. Athens became a center for music in the region during the Civil War and gained further fame in the early twentieth century with the founding of the Morton Theatre, which was a major touring destination for African American performers

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. RadioSonic was a Canadian radio program, which aired on CBC Radio 2 from 1997 to 2003. RadioSonic, which aired on Saturday evenings, was originally created by combining two predecessor programs, David Wisdom''s Nightlines and Leora Kornfeld''s Realtime. Both Wisdom and Kornfeld remained as hosts of the new program, which profiled Canadian indie rock and alternative music. Kornfeld left the show to pursue academic studies in England at the end of the 1999 season. In 2001, producer and contributor Grant Lawrence became the host of the program. During this era, the CBC''s new media division was launching the CBC Radio 3 webcasting project, and in 2003 RadioSonic was integrated into and renamed CBC Radio 3. With the evolution of Radio 3 into a satellite radio station in 2005, the Saturday evening program on CBC Radio 2 became a simulcast of the satellite network until it was discontinued from Radio Two on March 17, 2007. However, the satellite radio network is still patterned to a significant degree on RadioSonic''s old format and style.

Largely divorced from the traditional blues and rock and roll influences of British and American rock music up to that time, the period contributed to the evolution of electronic music and ambient music as well as the birth of post-punk, alternative rock and new-age music. Key artists associated with the tag include Can, Amon Dl II, Ash Ra Tempel, Faust, Popol Vuh, Cluster, Harmonia, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Neu!, and Kraftwerk.

Joy Division changed the face of music. Godfathers of alternative rock, they reinvented music in the post-punk era, creating a new sound-dark, hypnotic, and intense-that would influence U2, Morrissey, R.E.M., Radiohead, and numerous others. The story is now legendary: in 1980, on the heels of their groundbreaking debut, UNKNOWN PLEASURES, and on the eve of their first U.S. tour, the band was rent asunder by the tragic death of their enigmatic lead singer, Ian Curtis. Yet in the mere three years they were together, Joy Division produced two landmark albums and a handful of singles-including the iconic anthem 'Love Will Tear Us Apart'-that continue to have a powerful resonance to this day. Now for the first time their story is told by one of their own. In UNKNOWN PLEASURES, founding member and bass player Peter Hook recounts how four young men from Manchester and Salisbury, with ad hoc instruments and a beat up old van, rose from the punk scene to create a haunting atmospheric music that would define a generation. Peter talks with eye-opening candor and reflection about the suicide of Ian Curtis; covers the band's friendships and fall-outs; the evolution of their sound and image; and the larger-than-life characters who formed a vital part of the Joy Division legend including Factory Records founder Tony Wilson, and producer Martin Hannett. Told with surprising humor and vivid detail, UNKNOWN PLEASURES is the book Joy Division fans have waited decades for.

Granite Genesis: In Situ Melting and Crustal Ev...
163,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Granitic rocks are a major component of the continental crust and the many and complex problems of their origin that have confronted geologists for over 200 years still are presenting challenges today. Current ideas of granite formation involve lower crustal melting, segregation, ascent (as dykes or diapirs) and emplacement in the upper crust. In this book we suggest an alternative model for the origin of granite in terms of in-situ melting-intracrustal convection that physically determines the process from partial melting of mid-upper crustal rocks to formation of a convecting magma layer. We illustrate the model using geological, geochemical and geophysical studies from Australia, North and South America, Europe and China, and conclude that heat convection within a crustal partial melt layer is essential for the formation of granite magma and that without convection, partial melting of rocks produces migmatites rather than granites. Granite is layer-like within the crust, and shape and size of granite bodies reflect the geometric relationship between an irregular upper surface of the crystallised magma layer and depth of erosion. Repeated melting of the crust generates downward-younging granite sequences. Chemical and isotopic compositions of granites indicate differentiation within the magma rather than different deep sources. Of a number of proposed heat sources that can cause mid-upper crustal anatexis, large-scale crustal melting and formation of a granite magma layer is considered to be primarily related to plate convergence. A dynamic model with examples from the western Pacific continental margin in SE China and Tethys-Tibet is proposed to explain the relationship between plate convergence, granite and compressive deformation of the continental crust. Mineralisation related to granite formation, fault-block basins, formation of continental red beds and volcanism with examples from SE China, are also discussed in terms of the new model. In a final section, we introduce a new rock cycling model of the continental crust and the concept of Geochemical Fields of Elements, illustrating the unity between the microcosm and macrocosm of the natural world.

Remnants of Eden

What do we really know about this universe, about life, and time, and the advent of reality itself? Countless voices cry out with endless answers, but ultimately a question remains for those brave or insane enough to ask it: What if they are wrong? Could the best answers actually reside within the scientific and historical insights that have long been dismissed by mainstream authorities? What are we to make of the fact that sober research not only counters the popular assertions, but also at the same time bolsters those arguments for the antithesis to their positions? In 'Remnants of Eden: Evolution, Deep-time, & the Antediluvian World,' discover how the rock-solid positions of the mainstream are in fact fractured and unstable, yet face the stunning realization that the ancient notions of our origins stand strong even today, bolstered by quiet truths, unearthed discoveries, and technological breakthroughs. Could it be that this reality is not some cosmic accident but actually the direct creation of an intelligence? Is it possible that evolution and deep-time are misleading ideologies built upon interpretation rather than actual fact, and that we ourselves exist as biological testaments to a young advent by that intelligence? Is the Christian Bible simply an ancient and fallible text, or is it verifiably much, much more? What were the earliest days like - in the beginning - before we lost our way, and what proofs do we have for any of it? Whether you are a dedicated Bible believer, someone searching for an alternative to naturalism's godless saga, or simply curious as to what may yet lie hidden in the shadowy realm of the forgotten past, prepare for an exploration of the 'Remnants of Eden: Evolution, Deep-time, & the Antediluvian World.'
