Talk to Iris: The soothing sound of music – CapitalGazette.com

Posted: Sunday, October 15, 2017

In times of tumult and celebration, we turn to music, sweet music. After a rocky week in our world, a packed audience was soothed by the opening night of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, now in its 56th season. We were lulled by works such as Symphony No. 8 by Antonín Dvořák and exalted by visiting Israeli soloist Vadim Gluzman performing Dmitri Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 2. The unity of instruments…

St Vincent: Masseduction review – accessible but challenging pop – The Guardian

Posted: Sunday, October 15, 2017

In 1978, the porn mag Hustler ran one of the most infamous magazine covers in history – a woman’s legs sticking out of a meat-grinder. It played on the idea that the publication treated women like sides of beef (something a Larry Flynt cover line disingenuously protested against). Annie Clark doesn’t actually reproduce this specific image in any of the high-concept artwork for her fifth album. But in the recent video for Los…

It’s been 70 years since Chuck Yeager’s historic flight — here’s what it was like to break the sound barrier – Markets Insider

Posted: Sunday, October 15, 2017

Brig. Gen. Charles E. “Chuck” Yeager with the X-1. USAF On October 14, 1947, US Air Force Capt. Chuck Yeager flew a Bell X-1 experimental plane at Mach 1 some 40,000 feet over the Mojave Desert, becoming the first human to travel faster than the speed of sound. The journey to that flight started in late 1943, at a conference hosted by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, which was…

Bedouine review – a wandering star is born – The Guardian

Posted: Sunday, October 15, 2017

There have always been talented singers and nice tunes; while some artists are all about virtuosity, others rely on atmosphere. It’s rare, however, to stumble across such a beguiling confluence of voice, delivery, song-writing and vibes as you find in Bedouine, a mesmerising 33-year-old folk singer, still a cult act but deserving of much wider acclaim. When she walks on stage in this pub back room, the LA-dweller actually resembles…

When Whistling Is Not Music to Your Ears – New York Times

Posted: Saturday, October 14, 2017

Q. My fiancée and I rent a wonderful apartment in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. A man sits on the stoop across the street and whistles as long as the sun shines. He whistles a repeating pattern, like someone breathing in and out of a harmonica. When we politely ask him to stop, he does, but only until we are out of view. It feels unfair that we cannot enjoy having the windows…

Dangerous sound? What Americans heard in Cuba attacks – ABC News

Posted: Friday, October 13, 2017

It sounds sort of like a mass of crickets. A high-pitched whine, but from what? It seems to undulate, even writhe. Listen closely: There are multiple, distinct tones that sound to some like they’re colliding in a nails-on-the-chalkboard effect. The Associated Press has obtained a recording of what some U.S. Embassy workers heard in Havana in a series of unnerving incidents later deemed to be deliberate attacks. The recording, released…

Pioneer HDJ-X10 review: great for listening, terrible to DJ with – The Verge

Posted: Friday, October 13, 2017

When I first heard about Pioneer’s new flagship HDJ-X10 headphones priced at $349, I called them over-engineered. What touring DJ actually needs headphones with a frequency response that tops out at twice the limits of human hearing? Not one, I’ll tell you. I’ve been a touring DJ for a decade, and I can tell you half of us have probably lost a chunk of high-end hearing range anyway from blasting…
