So, she showed up with just her ukulele in hand, prepared for a stripped-down, abbreviated set. But when we wheeled out a grand piano just for her – and after I gushed to the crowd about Palmer's brilliant new opus on the nature of humanity called "The Ride" – she decided she had to play it.</p> <p> </p> <p>Like many of the tracks on There Will Be No Intermission, "The Ride" is a deep, existential dive into fear, death, loneliness and grief, with the tiniest glimmer of hope or comfort at the end. This is Palmer's first album in seven years and it documents all she's been through in that time. It's also an album she says wouldn't have been possible if she hadn't decided to make it on her own, with crowdfunding support from fans. "It's a very intense record. It's been a very intense seven years of my life since I put out my last one," she told the crowd at Austin's Central Presbyterian Church. And without having a label to answer to, she said she was able to "write an entire album with songs that are really long and about miscarriage and abortion and about the kind of stuff I don't want to take up to 'Steve' in marketing to try to explain why this record should exist."</p> <p> </p> <p>Though she's played abbreviated versions of "The Ride" in past shows, this is one of her earliest performances of the full, album-length song. Two days after her Tiny Desk Family Hour set, Palmer returned to the Central Presbyterian Church for an epic, two-and-a-half hour concert with just her ukulele and piano.</p> urn:lj:blogs.sapo.pt:atom1:lsoares:2086478 2019-04-18T12:20:00 Le violiniste bleu 2019-04-17T16:21:53Z 2019-04-17T16:22:27Z <p class="sapomedia images"><img style="padding: 10px 0px;" title="bleu.jpg" src="https://c026204.cdn.sapo.io/1/c026204/cld-thumb/1426522730/6d77c9965e17b15/71bb68e096be30583a721674ea967fca/lsoares/2019/bleu.jpg?size=xl" alt="bleu.jpg" width="742" height="960" /></p> <p>Marc Chagall – <em>Le violiniste bleu,</em> 1929</p> urn:lj:blogs.sapo.pt:atom1:lsoares:2085407 2019-04-18T09:09:00 Nadra Mabrouk - Brother as Younger Self, Humming 2019-04-17T13:10:13Z 2019-04-17T13:10:13Z <p>The streets of Shobra are still traced</p> <p>with music from years ago—</p> <p>children ripping</p> <p>the clothes off lines,</p> <p>pins scattering in a rounded clatter</p> <p>of sharp-throated wooden notes.</p> <p>It might have been a merging</p> <p>of Mohamed Fouad</p> <p>and Mohamed Mohy</p> <p>or Mohamed Fawzi,</p> <p>and my brother (also a Mohamed)</p> <p>is sitting in the shimmering corner</p> <p>of our grandma’s balcony with one leg up.</p> <p>He wants to finish this one song</p> <p>because it has his favorite parts,</p> <p>which he has rewound a few times now,</p> <p>and Mahmoud is downstairs again</p> <p>yelling, holding a peeling board game</p> <p>they taped together, and my brother’s eyes glint</p> <p>over to the chorus, remembering how Mahmoud</p> <p>once told him how his father comes home</p> <p>only once a month, and he feels bad</p> <p>he is taking so long to go downstairs</p> <p>but this would be the last time</p> <p>he rewinds the song, <em>Mahmoud,</em> <em>wallahi,</em></p> <p>he yells, the cassette player’s volume</p> <p>on high but not loud enough</p> <p>to drown out the street-market prices,</p> <p>the chatter of bent men</p> <p>at the coffeehouse, their fingers caterpillar-like</p> <p>through the mugs, blowing</p> <p>on clouded tea,</p> <p>but the music is just enough</p> <p>to shroud it all in the blur</p> <p>of a filmy fog that Mahmoud can hear</p> <p>and he can’t help but remember</p> <p>how sometimes at night,</p> <p>if he closes his eyes hard enough,</p> <p>he hears the din of keys</p> <p>against the door,</p> <p>the whistling of a man</p> <p>nearly always caught</p> <p>in the middle</p> <p>of an unfinished song.</p> urn:lj:blogs.sapo.pt:atom1:lsoares:2086367 2019-04-17T16:32:00 Herbstmeer 2019-04-17T15:41:51Z 2019-04-17T15:41:51Z <p class="sapomedia images"><img style="width: 1280px; padding: 10px 0px;" title="nolder.jpg" src="https://c026204.cdn.sapo.io/1/c026204/cld-thumb/1426522730/6d77c9965e17b15/71bb68e096be30583a721674ea967fca/lsoares/2019/nolder.jpg?size=xl" alt="nolder.jpg" width="1280" height="1068" /></p> <p>Emil Nolde - Herbstmeer XVII 1911</p> urn:lj:blogs.sapo.pt:atom1:lsoares:2085201 2019-04-17T12:12:00 Soave sia il vento 2019-04-16T14:13:20Z 2019-04-16T14:13:20Z <p class="sapomedia videos"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/bR2U8bXtUfI" width="760" height="428" frameborder="0" style="width: 760px; padding: 10px 0px;" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>Corinne Winters as Fiordiligi, Angela Brower as Dorabella and Johannes Martin Kränzle as Don Alfonso sing the Act I trio ‘Soave sia il vento’ in Jan Philipp Gloger's production of Così fan tutte.</p> urn:lj:blogs.sapo.pt:atom1:lsoares:2084360 2019-04-17T08:16:00 Forrest Gander - The Sounding 2019-04-16T09:18:17Z 2019-04-16T09:18:17Z <p>What closes and then<br />luminous?

Edição Histórica, Ed. Abril, 2004</strong></p> <p> </p> <p>Neuenschwander tackles the politics of Walt Disney by dismantling a historic edition of the popular Brazilian comic book <em>Zé Carioca</em>, created in 1941 when the animator visited South America to support American relations with the region during World War II. The main character, Zé Carioca, a soccer–playing green parrot whose name loosely translates as "Joe from Rio," is a stand–in for the Brazilian everyman. Having grown up with cartoons, Neuenschwander recalls that Zé Carioca acted in stories with nationalistic overtones. "His character was based on a stereotypical cliché of the Brazilian," she says, "or more precisely, the <em>Carioca</em>(someone born in Rio de Janeiro): street–smart, lazy, a lover of soccer and samba, a flirt and a swindler. The cliché of the cliché, he ended up helping to crystallize the national image of the <em>malandro</em> (rascal)." She confronts the implicit political and racial undertones by overpainting the figures in bright monochrome colors and whiting out the text. By turning each page into an abstraction the artist offers viewers a clean slate to imagine their own stories and dialogues.</p> urn:lj:blogs.sapo.pt:atom1:lsoares:2084333 2019-04-16T10:15:00 György Ligeti - Requiem  2019-04-16T09:17:06Z 2019-04-16T09:17:06Z <p class="sapomedia videos"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/wqrJmxy4q3A" width="760" height="428" frameborder="0" style="width: 760px; padding: 10px 0px;" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>György Ligeti - Requiem </p> <p> </p> <p>Makeda Monnet, soprano / Victoire Bunel, mezzo-soprano</p> <p>Chœur National Hongrois / Csaba Somos, Chef de chœur</p> <p>Orchestre du Conservatoire de Paris / Ensemble intercontemporain</p> <p>Matthias Pintscher, direction </p> <p> </p> <p>Enregistré en direct le 07.12.2018 à la Philharmonie de Paris</p> <p>Un bâtiment conçu par les Ateliers Jean Nouvel</p> <p> </p> <p>(c) 2018 Heliox Films – Ensemble intercontemporain</p> urn:lj:blogs.sapo.pt:atom1:lsoares:2083935 2019-04-15T21:17:00 Willa Cather - Paris 2019-04-15T20:18:06Z 2019-04-15T20:20:40Z <p>Behind the arch of glory sets the day;</p> <p>The river lies in curves of silver light,</p> <p>The Fields Elysian glitter in a spray</p> <p>Of golden dust; the gilded dome is bright,</p> <p>The towers of Notre Dame cut clean and gray</p> <p>The evening sky, and pale from left to right</p> <p>A hundred bridges leap from either quay.</p> <p>Pillared with pride, the city of delight</p> <p>Sits like an empress by her silver Seine,</p> <p>Heavy with jewels, all her splendid dower</p> <p>Flashing upon her, won from shore and main</p> <p>By shock of combat, sacked from town and tower.</p> <p>Wherever men have builded hall or fane</p> <p>Red war hath gleaned for her and men have slain</p> <div>To deck her loveliness.

He is wearing only leather combat boots, one foot propped up on a breeze block. Rivers painted a number of portraits of O'Hara, but this is by far the most provocative. <br /><br />This portrait reveals Rivers's raw talent as a portraitist and draughtsman, a talent which was unfashionable at a time when Abstract Expressionism still reigned supreme. Again, however, Rivers's rebellion was political as well as aesthetic: the overt homoeroticism of the work, that is, was particularly daring during the 1950s, the era not only of the Red Scare, but also of the so-called Lavender Scare. Being gay in 1950s America, just like being a Communist, was seen as a threat to national security, so much so that the Government launched a witch-hunt to out homosexuals and have them removed from their posts. Standing at 2.5 meters tall, this painting makes an imposing and provocative statement in an era long before personal identity - let alone gay identity - was a suitable subject for modern art. As art critic Ken Johnson explains, "[t]he way the young, muscular O'Hara stands with hands on his head and one foot up on a concrete block creates a casual sexual vitality that slyly subverts high-minded traditions of the academic nude." <br /><br />A closer look at the painting will reveal a witty dialogue between 'high' and 'low' cultural references. As Johnson suggests, the portrait mimics an Old Masters' painting in some aspects of its composition, but O'Hara also seems to be posing in the style of a contemporary pin-up. For the sitter himself, "what Larry was trying to do was keep it from being academic. But at the same time getting in the ring with [Theodore] Géricault," the French Romantic portraitist. O'Hara and Rivers's relationship was defined by a meeting of the high and low-brow. The pair were formidable intellectuals, who would spend much of their time discussing literature and art. But they were also party boys: O' Hara, in particular, was famous for cruising for sex in downtown New York.</p>
