Die Nobelpreis Vorlesung

Genre: Fiction

In seiner Rede anlässlich der Verleihung des Nobelpreises für Literatur gibt Bob Dylan erstmals umfassend Einblick in seine literarischen Einflüsse und die Ursprünge seines Songwritings. Woher stammen die mythologischen Anspielungen in seinen Texten, woher die manchmal fast biblischen Gleichnisse? Welche Bücher haben seine Einstellung zum Leben geprägt? Und wo hat er die speziellen Ausdrucksweisen, Jargons, Kunstgriffe und Techniken gelernt? Neben dem prägenden Einfluss von Buddy Holly sowie der Country-, Blues- und Folkmusik der späten 50er und frühen 60er Jahre mit ihrer von spezieller Mundart geprägten Lyrics fließen vielfältige literarische Motive in seine Texte ein: die biblische Symbolik in Moby Dick, die Drastik eines Kriegsromans wie Im Westen nichts Neues, aber vor allem das Motiv der Reise aus der Odyssee als universeller, menschlicher Grundverfassung. Aus diesem Bodensatz heraus schuf Bob Dylan, wie er selber sagt, Lyrics, wie sie noch niemand zuvor gehört hatte.

Led Zeppelin All the Songs

Author: Jean-Michel Guesdon
Publisher: Hachette UK
ISBN: 9780316418034
Release Date: 2018-10-23
Genre: Music

Take a deep dive into the innovative recording history of Led Zeppelin, in this newest addition to the fan-favorite All the Songs series. Fifty years after their first practice in a Soho basement, Led Zeppelin continues to fascinate new generations of listeners. While their legendary back-stage debauchery has been written about extensively in other books, All the Songs is all about the music, detailing the studio magic and inspiration that made all nine albums go platinum, including Led Zeppelin IV which was certified x23 platinum and has sold more than 37 million copies worldwide. Studio stories will include their productive time at Headley Grange in Wales, a poorly-heated former poorhouse where they recorded parts of Led Zeppelin III, Led Zeppelin IV, Houses of the Holy and Physical Graffiti. And how the first album was recorded in three weeks but their second took six months, done while the band was on a world tour. They carried the masters of the recording session in a steamer trunk wherever they went. Out of these chaotic sessions came the "Whole Lotta Love," which was finished in New York with Hendrix engineer Eddie Kramer helping create the psychedelic middle part, as well as "The Lemon Song," which was cut live in the studio. Page worked feverishly with Kramer to mix the LP on a primitive 12-channel Altec board in a two-day span. Fans will also learn the genesis of their lyrics, the inspiration for their album covers, the instruments used, and the contributions of engineers such as Andy Johns, who helped create the iconic drum sound on "When the Levee Breaks" by recording Bonham at the bottom of a stairwell.

Gleich ob Siege oder Niederlagen, die st�rksten kriegerischen Ereignisse ihrer Vergangenheit erkl�ren, wie eine Nation beschaffen ist - optimistisch oder pessimistisch, defensiv oder offensiv. F�r immer neue Anl�ufe zur Macht ist Krieg das probate Mittel. Die brutalsten Krieger sind die Helden jeder Nationalgeschichte.Langsam d�mmert uns, dass wir auf einem zu eng gewordenen Planeten uns Kriege nicht mehr leisten k�nnen. Doch immer noch hinterlassen Granaten und Gewehre �blen Nachhall in den Seelen der Menschen. Die Verleugnung des Schadens durch M�nner, die Kriege wollen und nutzen, verankert Gewalt in den Seelen und f�hrt zum t�dlichen Kreislauf, der sich Generation f�r Generation wiederholt.Nationale Katastrophen wie der erste Weltkrieg, die russische Revolution oder der chinesische B�rgerkrieg traumatisieren ganze Nationen und sch�digen ihre Strukturen. Dann liegen nationale Traumata vor, die nur in langen Friedenszeiten verarbeitet werden k�nnen.Wenn also die Welt nicht in Krieg und Zerst�rung untergehen soll, dann m�ssen wir die nationalen Traumata �berwinden und den Kreislauf der Gewalt durch gute globale Strukturen ersetzen. Von solchen L�sungen handelt dieses Buch. Wir alle haben es in der Hand, ob die Apokalypse oder eine lebenswerte Welt unsere Zukunft sein wird.
