Oliver Lieb was particularly influential via the first wave of European club trance that emerged in the 1990's, the melodic and more accessible cousin of techno… and the distinctive futuristic, techy quality of his trance productions also carries over into his downtempo and ambient albums, relatively few in number but exceptionally high in quality. "Constellation" (1993) was his first ambient album release. The title certainly makes explicit the deep space and sci-fi themes but the music itself is sophisticated and understated. The fourteen minute "Dimension X" is an absolutely gorgeous cosmic hymn with exquisitely layered melodic loops in the best Berlin-school ambient tradition and executed with a feather-soft touch. This stunningly accomplished track alone makes the album worth having.

La Grande Guerra non fu soltanto il primo conflitto "totale" - capace, cioè, di coinvolgere e mobilitare ogni forza sociale ed enormi risorse economiche -, ma anche la prima guerra realmente globale nella storia del mondo. Essa rappresentò non solo per l'Europa, ma anche per molti paesi extraeuropei la "catastrofe originaria del XX secolo". Prima di allora mai nessun evento aveva cambiato la vita di così tante persone in tutti i continenti. …

Oliver Sacks - Su una gamba sola
Italian | Adelphi | 1991 | ISBN: 8845908286 | 241 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Un incidente di montagna in Norvegia: Oliver Sacks si ritrova su un letto con una gamba che, nella sua percezione, non gli appartiene più. All'inizio, pensa che il suo caso sia semplice e banale. Poi, si trova sprofondato in un «abisso di effetti bizzarri e anche terrificanti». Quella gamba alienata dal suo corpo lo induce a indagare «l'orrore e la meraviglia che occhieggiano dietro la vita e che sono celati, per così dire, dietro la superficie usuale della salute». Perdere la percezione di un arto lede l'immagine di se stessi, obbliga a chiedersi che cosa sia questo Sé che agisce in noi. Anche questa volta, Sacks indaga, e ci fa partecipi della sua indagine, attraverso il racconto: che sarà il racconto di uno strano viaggio «in avanti e all'indietro - perché questa sembra essere la natura del pensiero: ricondurci al suo punto di partenza, alla casa atemporale della mente».

By the time Oliver Nelson and his big band had recorded Fantabulous in March of 1964 for Argo, the great composer, saxophonist, conductor, and arranger was a man about town in New York. He had released some truly classic dates of his own as a leader in smaller group forms – Blues and the Abstract Truth and Full Nelson among them – and had done arrangement work for everyone from Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis and Johnny Hodges, Nancy Wilson, Frank Wess, King Curtis, Etta Jones, Jimmy Smith, Jack Teagarden, Betty Carter, Billy Taylor, and Gene Ammons, to name more than a few. For Fantabulous, he took his working big band to Chicago for a gig sponsored by Daddy-O-Daylie, a famous local disc jockey.
