Product Description
The legend of Faust might best exemplify the concept of a pact with the devil, but such a bargain is also a cultural motif common to many Christian folk tales. The protagonist seeks eternal youth, wealth or status. The price is the wagerer’s soul.

Great achievements have been credited to a pact, from the violin virtuosity of Niccolo Paganini to the “crossroad” myth associated with Robert Leroy Johnson (1911- 1938). Legend has it that this master of Delta blues made his own journey to the crossroads to trade his soul for guitar wizardry.

Eighteenth-century Europe, and England in particular, witnessed unprecedented prosperity, and a burgeoning, educated middle class. The newly affluent attended opera houses, salons, private homes and pleasure gardens to enjoy diverse entertainments and music. Handel dominated the venues for opera and the oratorio, but William Boyce, Joseph Gibbs, Michael Festing and others were composing chamber music for small ensembles and plush cloisters in the homes of wealthy patrons.

The Classical era and flowering of the Romantics changed the face of Western society. Europe saw revolution, the Franco Prussian War, invention of the telegraph and internal combustion engine. Frederic Chopin enlarged the repertoire for solo piano, expanding the instrument’s range, as well as its impact on modern music. Franz Schubert’s personality and style exemplified the Romantic ideal.

Later Expressionist composers such as Schoenberg and Paul Hindemith took chamber music into unexplored territory and new directions. Schoenberg, evolving from his early tonal works to later use of dissonance, insisted that this new textural development was simply a logical evolution. Modern movements in classical genres, as well as jazz were classified using similar phrases, appearing in critiques by the establishment, that applied to visual arts and architecture. Minimalism, for example, was characterized by the absence of adornments such as modulation, in pursuit of a stripped down functionality. This device is generally understood as a theory of major/minor tonality. Perceptually, tonality can express a migration and return to a hub, or central reference point. In relationships between sciences and post-tonality in music, processes of cognition take the form of principles that delineate our private responses to change, such as intuition.

Definitions of temporality in music may confirm or refute certain absolutes. Variable behavior as a range of modalities within societies has a visceral affinity with the liberal arts. In composition, properties of elasticity and resistance to standardization pertain to tempo, rhythmic and metric structures, allowing for the possibility of anti-narrative techniques, non linear motion, autonomic gesture and deliberate incoherence. These reflect choices we make based on philosophical and rustic considerations, idiosyncratic of content and style in the humanities of native cultures as well.

The first instruments in pre-Columbian cultures were probably those obtained from the environment and used in their natural states, without further modification. Seed pods or “cascabeles,” the conch shell trumpet, calcite stones that emitted pleasing sounds when struck and the tortoise shell played with deer antlers may have originated from organic materials that were gathered for utilitarian purposes. As New World religions became more complex, rituals demanded sacred music, dance and human sacrifice.

Ancient Greek music has emerged from a handful of ancient documents inscribed with a vocal notation devised around 450 BC, consisting of alphabetic letters and signs placed above the vowels of Greek words. Ancient Greeks composed music and verse meant to be accompanied by the lyre, reed-pipes, and various percussion instruments between 700 and 450 BC. These are known from paintings and archaeological remains, allowing researchers to establish the timbres and range of pitches they produced. Modern scholars have been able to reconstruct and perform these fragments.

The rise to independence, equality and identity of black America would see the development of significant literary trends that became established art forms following the turbulent and dissident fifties and sixties. One fusion of poetry, African rhythm and eloquently legitimized street smarts emerged and achieved international renown as rap and hip-hop.

Musical instruments represent many things; engineering, science, culture, religion and philosophy. Musicologists speak of “body music.” Musicians gravitate to instruments that are comfortable to hold and play. Choices of timbre and materials are personal; blind players are particularly sensitive to pitch, vibration and balance.

Prior to 1930, literature in the Caribbean was a diversion of the elite. Englishmen of the “Sugar Isles” promoted British imperialism. Anti-colonial consciousness marked the emergence of Caribbean voices finding their first expression in calypso. Calypso originated in West Africa and migrated to the islands, incorporating elements of calinda dance, shango and work songs. Reggae sprang from these roots. Here is an excerpt by Jimmy Cliff:

Between the day you’re born and when you die
They never seem to hear even your cry
So as sure as the sun will shine
I’ll get my share now, what’s mine,
Then the harder they come, the harder they’ll fall
One and all...
