1. Through the unknown, unremembered gate
    When the last of earth left to discover
    Is that which was the beginning
    T.S. Eliot
  2. El silencio es acompañante un tanto paradójico. Por un lado es esa textura perpetua, que yace al fondo de innumerables capas y texturas sonoras. Pero también es, o al menos parece, siempre efímero, incluso por momentos un estado inalcanzable. Siempre latente, aunque cuando lo alcanzas incluso dudas del encuentro, y para cuando estás listo para aceptar su existencia entonces, muy probablemente, ya se habrá ido.
    John Cage

A Western is identifiable by people on horseback in the West, and a musical involves singing and dancing. But what characterizes film noir? Richard Brody on the elusive genre: http://nyr.kr/1A6z3wz

“The term ‘film noir’ has come down to us as a product of a subordinate strain of French criticism, different from the one that came to dominate cinematic discourse with the concept of auteurism, as well as to dominate filmmaking itself through the innovations of the New Wave. It had no currency among Hollywood filmmakers of the forties and fifties, for the simple reason that French criticism over-all had little influence in the U.S. until the rise of the New Wave.”

  6. The curtain goes up on the Bayreuth Festival this week, but observers say the prestigious month-long summer music fest dedicated to the works of Richard Wagner could be losing some of its shine. Detractors say that under its current management — Wagner’s great-granddaughters Katharina Wagner and Eva Wagner-Pasquier, who took over in 2009 — the festival is on its way downhill. Fans of the late German composer already joke that the best Wagner singers can be heard anywhere but in Bayreuth. Ever since Wagner’s grandsons Wolfgang and Wieland relaunched the event after World War II, tickets to Bayreuth have been the hardest to come by in the world of opera and classical music.

    To Professor Henryk Elzenberg

     

    Good night Marcus put out the light

    and shut the book  For overhead

    is raised a gold alarm of stars

    heaven is talking some foreign tongue

    this the barbarian cry of fear

    your Latin cannot understand

    Terror continuous dark terror

    against the fragile human land

    begins to beat

    It’s winning

    Hea its roar The unrelenting stream

    of elements will drown your prose

    until the world’s four walls go down

    As for us? — to tremble in the air

    blow in the ashes stir the ether

    gnaw our fingers seek vain words

    drag off the fallen shades behind us

    Well Marcus better hang up your peace

    give me your hand across the dark

    Let it tremble when the blind world beats

    on senses five like a failing lyre

    Traitors — universe and astronomy

    reckoning of stars wisdom of grass

    and your greatness too immense

    and Marcus my defenseless tears

  10. Verás gentes que entienden tan al revés la religión, que
    antes tolerarán los màs graves ultrajes contra
    Cristo, que una ligera broma acerca de un
    Papa o de un rey, sobre todo si en ello les va
    el pan”

    Erasmo de Rotterdam a Thomas Moro
