Non-Representational Geographies of Therapeutic Art Making: Thinking Through Practice

Non-Representational Geographies of Therapeutic Art Making: Thinking Through Practice by Candice Boyd
English | 27 Dec. 2016 | ISBN: 3319462857 | 118 Pages | PDF | 7.37 MB

Utilising non-representational theories and practice-led research methods, this book serves to reclaim therapeutics as ecological, spatial and material. It examines the sites and performances of a wide range of therapeutic art practices, including painting and drawing, dance movement therapy, fibre art, subterranean graffiti practice, and poetic permaculture. In doing so it provides an important assessment of the role and status of therapy in contemporary life.

Genre: Video Training

For this highly anticipated volume we examine the theory and practice of dimensional mixing within electronic dance music. This is much more than your typical mixing tutorial; here we not only discuss the basic mixing techniques we also introduce and examine the theory of gain structure, mixing desks, busses, VCA groups, ear training, visual mixing and how to introduce an added dimension to your sound. Spread over 2 discs the tutorial begins with an introduction to gain structure within a DAW. If you thought gain structure only applied to those working outside the box - you couldn't be more wrong. A well organised and considered gain structure is fundamental to digital mixing and is more often than not the defining characteristic between mixes that sound open and clean to those that appear digital and crowded.

Dance of Shiva as a system of conscious liberation. It is an ancient yogic art which uses synchronized movements of arms and legs to create powerful flows of life energy. As the movements become increasingly complex, the practitioner is challenged to develop increasing conscious control of these energy flows, with beneficial physical, mental and spiritual results. Andrey has created a uniquely modern method of teaching this ancient practice.

Dancing Many Drums: Excavations in African American Dance

Dancing Many Drums: Excavations in African American Dance (Studies in Dance History, A series of the Society of Dance History Scholars) by Thomas Defrantz

Few will dispute the profound influence that African American music and movement has had in American and world culture. "Dancing Many Drums" explores that influence through a groundbreaking collection of essays on African American dance history, theory and practice. In so doing, it reevalautes "black" and "African American" as both racial and dance categories.

For Volume 15 we examine the science and practice of Techno, and in particular DrumCode Techno. While to many Techno can appear a relatively simple genre its simplicity belies a far, far more complex production ethic. Designed mainly as a DJ’s tool for the dance floor it is also perhaps one of the more complex genres of modern dance music to produce.
The Place of Dance: A Somatic Guide to Dancing and Dance Making

The Place of Dance: A Somatic Guide to Dancing and Dance Making By Andrea Olsen, Caryn McHose
English | Published by Wesleyan (January 30, 2014) | ISBN: 0819574058 | 288 pages | PDF | 12.48 MB

The Place of Dance is written for the general reader as well as for dancers. It reminds us that dancing is our nature, available to all as well as refined for the stage. Andrea Olsen is an internationally known choreographer and educator who combines the science of body with creative practice. This workbook integrates experiential anatomy with the process of moving and dancing, with a particular focus on the creative journey involved in choreographing, improvising, and performing for the stage. Each of the chapters, or “days,” introduces a particular theme and features a dance photograph, information on the topic, movement and writing investigations, personal anecdotes, and studio notes from professional artists and educators for further insight. The third in a trilogy of works about the body, including Bodystories: A Guide to Experiential Anatomy and Body and Earth: An Experiential Guide, The Place of Dance will help each reader understand his/her dancing body through somatic work, create a dance, and have a full journal clarifying aesthetic views on his or her practice. It is well suited for anyone interested in engaging embodied intelligence and living more consciously.
