Book excerpt: Katie Cooper's recent disappearance isn't a big shocker because her friends know that she'd been bent on skipping town. Little does anyone know that she's spending her days chained up in a clearing on an uninhabited island off the Georgia coast after being abducted at knife-point by a psychopath. All Bobby Steele wants in life is some respect for his rock band-and to put his hometown of Savannah, Georgia on the map of cities renowned for their live music scene. But just when it looks as if this dream may be one step closer to reality, a killer strikes in the nearby gambling town of Salt Island. The murderer, dubbed the "Salt Island Slasher" by the local media, toys with investigators by leaving mysterious messages in his victims' throats. Bobby's lifelong friend and sailing partner, Jim Ferguson, uses his family connections with the local newspaper to obtain the contents of these supposedly top-secret messages. Bobby is the only one who can glean anything meaningful from the strange words, and time is rapidly running out for him to prevent the next victim's agonizing demise. The two friends use their wits and sailing skills to deal with a persistent enemy from the past as they work together to prevent the Salt Island Slasher from striking again.

Book Amy Beach  Passionate Victorian

  • Author : Adrienne Fried Block
  • Publisher : Oxford University Press
  • Release : 1998-12-17
  • ISBN : 0195360788
  • Pages : 448 pages

Download or read book Amy Beach Passionate Victorian written by Adrienne Fried Block and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 1998-12-17 with total page 448 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Amy Marcy Cheney Beach (1867-1944), the most widely performed composer of her generation, was the first American woman to succeed as a creator of large-scale art music. Her "Gaelic" Symphony, given its premiere by the Boston Symphony Orchestra in 1896, was the first work of its kind by an American woman to be performed by an American orchestra. Almost all of her more than 300 works were published soon after they were composed and performed, and today her music is finding new advocates and audiences for its energy, intensity, and sheer beauty. Yet, until now, no full-length critical biography of Beach's life or comprehensive critical overview of her music existed. This biography admirably fills that gap, fully examining the connections between Beach's life and work in light of social currents and dominant ideologies. Born into a musical family in Victorian times, Amy Beach started composing as a child of four and was equally gifted as a pianist. Her talent was recognized early by Boston's leading musicians, who gave her unqualified support. Although Beach believed that the life of a professional musician was the only life for her, her parents had raised her for marriage and a career of amateur music-making. Her response to this parental (and later spousal) opposition was to find creative ways of reaching her goal without direct confrontation. Discouraged from a full-scale concert career, she instead found her métier in composition. Success as a composer of art songs came early for Beach: indeed, her songs outsold those of her contemporaries. Nevertheless, she was determined to separate her work from the genteel parlor music women were writing in her day by creating large-scale works--a Mass, a symphony, and chamber music--that challenged the accepted notion that women were incapable of creating high art. She won the respect of colleagues and the allegiance of audiences. Many who praised her work, however, considered her an exception among women. Beach's reaction to this was to join with other women composers of serious music by promoting their works along with her own. Adrienne Fried Block has written a biography that takes full account of issues of gender and musical modernism, considering Beach in the contexts of her time and of her composer contemporaries, both male and female. Amy Beach, Passionate Victorian will be of great interest to students and scholars of American music, and to music lovers in general.

Book Coastal Environments in Popular Song

Download or read book Coastal Environments in Popular Song written by Glenn Fosbraey and published by Taylor & Francis. This book was released on 2022-12-30 with total page 175 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book examines how popular music is able to approach subjects of bio-politics, climate change, solastalgia, and anthropomorphisation, alongside its more common diet of songs about love, dancing, and break-ups – all while satisfying its primary remit of being entertaining and listenable. Nearly a thousand books have been published on bioethics since Van Rensselaer Potter’s Bioethics Bridge to the Future (1971), with a marked increase in the past 20 years. However, not one of these books has focused itself on popular music, something Christopher Partridge describes as ‘central to the construction of [our] identities, central to [our] sense of self, central to [our] well-being and, therefore, central to [our] social relations’. This edited collection examines popular music through a range of topics, from romance to climate change. Coastal Environments in Popular Song is perfect for students, scholars, and researchers alike interested in bioethics, social history, and the history of music.

Book They Lived They Were at Brighton Beach

Download or read book They Lived They Were at Brighton Beach written by Iván Brave and published by Iván Brave. This book was released on 2020-06-16 with total page 395 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Loyal fans know him as a rising internet star and the resident DJ at one of Brooklyn’s sauciest nightclubs. But one blistering summer day, after relapsing, getting dumped, and winding up at the hospital, Ilya Gagarin awakes in a nightmare. The only way out, he figures, is to finally debut his EP, meaning, to realize a deeper dream. The process of producing, together with the power of music and an urge to accept his past, is passionately described in his journal—while the larger story follows the weeks leading to his EP launch, his struggle to quit drugs, and his falling in love again to a guardian angel. It is she who teaches him, “Do you know how Russians say Once Upon a Time? Жили были. It translates to They Lived They Were.” Suggesting Ilya might just get his fairy tale ending. Or at least move on.

  • Pages : 280 pages

Download or read book Music and the Road written by Gordon E. Slethaug and published by Bloomsbury Publishing USA. This book was released on 2017-12-02 with total page 280 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Brian Wilson and The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and Paul Simon-these familiar figures have written road music for half a century and continue to remain highly-regarded artists. But there is so much more to say about road music. This book fills a glaring hole in scholarship about the road and music. In a collection of 13 essays, Music and the Road explores the origins of road music in the blues, country-western, and rock 'n' roll; the themes of adventure, freedom, mobility, camaraderie, and love, and much more in this music; the mystique and reality of touring as an important part of getting away from home, creating community among performers, and building audiences across the country from the 1930s to the present; and the contribution of music to popular road films such as Bonnie and Clyde, Easy Rider, Thelma and Louise, and On the Road.

Book Becoming the Beach Boys  1961 1963

Download or read book Becoming the Beach Boys 1961 1963 written by James B. Murphy and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2015-06-08 with total page 435 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: They were almost The Pendletones--after the Pendleton wool shirts favored on chilly nights at the beach--then The Surfers, before being named The Beach Boys. But what separated them from every other teenage garage band with no musical training? They had raw talent, persistence and a wellspring of creativity that launched them on a legendary career now in its sixth decade. Following the musical vision of Brian Wilson, the Beach Boys blended ethereal vocal harmonies, searing electric guitars and lush arrangements into one of the most distinctive sounds in the history of popular music. Drawing on original interviews and newly uncovered documents, this book untangles the band's convoluted early history and tells the story of how five boys from California formed America's greatest rock 'n' roll band.
