كتاب الموسيقى الشرقي

by محمد كامل الخلعي

الموسيقى هو علم يبحث فيه عن أحوال النغم من جهة تأليفه اللذيذ والنافر ـ وعن أحوال الأزمة المتخللة بين النغمات من جهة الطول والقصر. فعلم أنه يتم بجزئين: الأول علم التأليف وهو اللحن ـ والثاني علم الإيقاع وهو المسمى أيضًا بالأصول. (فالنغمات) جمع نغمة بالتحريك وهي (لغة) الصوت الساذج الخالي من الحروف ـ و(اصطلاحًا) الصوت المترنم به. (واللحن) بالسكون (لغة) صوت من الأصوات المصوغة و(اصطلاحًا) ما ركب من نغمات بعضها يعلو أو يسفل عن بعض على نسب معلومة ـ (والنغم للحن كالأحرف للكلام)ـ ثم يرتب ترتيبًا موزونًا ـ أي أنه يصاغ على أحد الأوزان التي سنذكرها بعد. ويقرن بشيء من الشعر أو غيره من سائر الفنون السبعة التي هي ـ القريض ـ والدويت ـ والموالي ـ والموشح ـ والزجل ـ والقومة ـ وكان وكان. وهذا التعريف جامع مانع؛

10 (BFI Film Classics)

by Geoff Andrew

The Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami burst onto the international film scene in the early 1990s and was widely regarded as one of the most distinctive and talented modern-day directors. His major features - including Through the Olive Trees (1994), Taste of Cherry (1997) and The Wind Will Carry Us (1999) - are relatively modest in scale, contemplative and humanist in tone. In 2002, with 10, Kiarostami broke new ground, fixing one or two digital cameras on a car's dashboard to film ten conversations between the driver (Mania Akbari) and her various passengers. The results are astonishing: though formally rigorous, even austere, and documentary-like in its style, 10 succeeds both as emotionally affecting human drama and as a critical analysis of everyday life in modern Tehran.In his study of the film, Geoff Andrew considers 10 within the context of Kiarostami's career, of Iranian cinema's renaissance, and of international film culture. Drawing on a number of detailed interviews he conducted with both Kiarostami and his lead actress, Andrew sheds light on the unusual methods used in making the film, on its political relevance, and on its remarkably subtle aesthetic. He also argues that 10 was an important turning-point in the career of a film-maker who was not only one of contemporary cinema's most accomplished practitioners but also one of its most radical experimentalists.

10,000 Ways to Die: A Director's Take On The Spaghetti Western

by Alex Cox

40 years ago as a Graduate student I wrote a book about Spaghetti Westerns, called 10,000 Ways to Die. It's an embarrassing tome when I look at it now: full of half-assed semiotics and other attenuated academic nonsense. In the intervening period, I have had the interesting experience of being a film director. So now, when I watch these films, I'm looking at them from a different perspective. A professional perspective maybe...I'm thinking about what the filmmakers intended, how they did that shot, how the director felt when his film was recut by the studio and he was creatively and financially screwed. 10,000 Ways to Die is an entirely new book about an under-studied subject, the Spaghetti Western, from a director's POV. Not only have these films stood the test of time; some of them are very high art. - Alex Cox

10 Things to do with Embroidery Hoops: Unique and inspiring projects to decorate your home

by Kirsty Neale

From the introduction:Framing a piece of embroidery or an appliqued picture used to be a tricky and often prohibitively expensive business. The concept of framing an unumbellished piece of fabirc just because you liked the pattern was pretty much out of the question. I'm not sure when I first noticed people sharing pictures of embroidery displayed in the same hoop used to stitch it, but right from the start it seemed like the smartest of solutions.

100 Animated Feature Films (Screen Guides)

by Andrew Osmond

Twenty years ago, animated features were widely perceived as cartoons for children. Today, though, they encompass an astonishing range of films, styles and techniques. There is the powerful adult drama of Waltz with Bashir; the Gallic sophistication of Belleville Rendez-Vous; the eye-popping violence of Japan's Akira; and the stop-motion whimsy of Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Andrew Osmond provides an entertaining and illuminating guide to the endlessly diverse world of animated features, with entries on 100 of the most interesting and important animated films from around the world, from the 1920s to the present day.There are key studio brands such as Disney, Pixar and Dreamworks, but there are also recognised auteur directors such as America's Brad Bird (The Incredibles) and Japan's Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away). Technologies such as motion-capture, used in films such as Avatar, blur the distinctions between live-action and animation. Meanwhile, lone artists such as Nina Paley (Sita Sings the Blues) and Bill Plympton (Idiots and Angels) make entire films by themselves.Blending in-depth history and criticism, 100 Animated Feature Films balances the blockbusters with local success stories from Eastern Europe to Hong Kong. There are entries on Dreamworks' Shrek, Pixar's Toy Story, and Disney's The Jungle Book, but you will also find pieces on Germany's silhouette-based The Adventures of Prince Achmed, the oldest surviving animated feature; on the thirty year production of Richard Williams' legendary opus, The Thief and the Cobbler; and on the lost work of Argentina's Quirino Cristiani, who reputedly made the first animated feature in 1917.
