Current Reading / feb 2020
on: February 08, 2020, 18:21:06
In our irregualr series ´Current Reading´ forum members can post here what they are currently reading.
My livre du jour is  Future days:  Krautrock and the Building of Modern Germany
buy David Stubbs
Here is a review in The Quietus.
https://thequietus.com/articles/15957-david-stubbs-future-days-krautrock-book-review

"What distinguishes Krautrock from Anglo-American rock and pop, argues Stubbs, is its horizontality. It's not about songs, 'those small, vertical structures', but what one might liken to a mapping of sound across space. Informed by the classical avant-garde and the electronic experiments of Karlheinz Stockhausen, texture is foregrounded. Vocals and lyrics are used for their sonic properties, rather than the expression of the self."

I am currently working my way through "Waking, Dreaming, Being" by Evan Thompson.

From the back cover:

"A renowned philosopher of the mind also known for his groundbreaking work on Buddhism and cognitive science, Evan Thompson combines the latest neuroscience research on sleep, dreaming, and meditation with Indian and Western philosophy of mind, casting new light on the self and its relation to the brain."

Any lucid dreamers or dream yoga practitioners out there?   :) ;) 8)

Technical for me, I've referenced it elsewhere, but I'm reading 'Mixing Secrets for the Small Studio' by Mike Senior.

I do keep dipping into 'How Music Works' by David Byrne too.

The Weslayan Anthology of Science Fiction

A 150 year retrospective of the development of the genre with commentary on how contemporaneous  thought and events influenced the writing and how each story and author influenced what came next... and the future in general.

Fascinating... if you are a geek... or a Vulcan 👽

No, although it has some things in common. @Leonard Scaper
There is a Christian/semi religious thing called the holy nights. 12 nights, staring Christmas evening and ending Epiphany. We are to jot down our dreams immediately when we wake up. Otherwise the dream and deeper meaning will elude us.

I do that every year. This year I remember smuggling 78's. Just because I didn't want to be too light weight...  Go figure.
A very religious and philosophical insight. If I don't laugh at my self, somebody else will!

This year is not the first time I have serious doubts about this tradition.
But I will go on in in spite of my doubts.
Kind regards, Gus
