Christine & The Queens is the alt-moniker of French singer/songwriter/actress Heloise Letissier and her debut album „Chaleur Humaine“ ('Human Heat') is an impressive first outing in the Listening World. Ms Letissier makes a pretty noise; an approachable and tuneful take on electro-pop which might also appeal to admirers of Imogen Heap. There are eleven songs in the set, some sung in her native tongue and others in English, so a dictionary comes in handy here and there. The album has been released as self-titled (Christine and the Queens) in the United States.

How can one account better than Rousseau himself of all that Monsieur de Sainte-Colombe has brought to the viola da gamba, whether it be at the instrumental level (adding the 7th string that gives more depth to the sonority, The silver-plated strings that allow articulated and precise play even on the bass strings), but also an important development of the technique which gives the instrument a palette of sound of a finesse and a sensibility approaching the human voice . It is thanks to these decisive contributions that a school of viola da gamba was able to develop in France, Marais, Couperin and Forqueray being the most prestigious representatives. It seems important to me to pay tribute to this musician of the shadow of whom we are all still the heirs, as his son but also Marin Marais did in their time by dedicating to him two magnificent tombs.

Fragile Conviction: Changing Ideological Landscapes in Urban Kyrgyzstan

Fragile Conviction: Changing Ideological Landscapes in Urban Kyrgyzstan by Mathijs Pelkmans
English | Mar. 14, 2017 | ISBN: 150170513X | 230 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

How do specific secular and religious ideologies―such as nationalism, neoliberalism, atheism, Pentecostalism, Tablighi Islam, and shamanism―gain popularity and when do they lose traction? To answer these questions, Mathijs Pelkmans critically examines the trajectories of a range of ideologies as they move into the post-Soviet frontier in Central Asia.

The new album from Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie feels like a big, warm hug. The great melodies, intimate harmonies and terrific arrangements are instantly recognisable as coming from two of the band’s songwriters yet they’re new and intriguing enough to make it more than just another side project from an iconic group.

Christine Jensen leads the Orchestre national de jazz de Montréal in two large-scale works. First off comes a composition by Jensen herself – a five-movement work that pays tribute to great jazz artists who helped fashion her own style as both composer and improviser: John Coltrane, Lee Konitz, Wayne Shorter, Kenny Wheeler, and Jan Jarczyk (her first teacher).Then we hear a suite from Gershwin’s immortal opera Porgy and Bess in an arrangement by Gil Evans. This is the suite recorded by Miles Davis and his band, conducted by Evans, and released to great acclaim in 1959. It was one of the finest collaborations between Evans and Davis, and has gone down in jazz history as a monument of orchestral jazz. All the opera’s best-known numbers are here, including Bess, you is my woman now, It ain’t necessarily so, There’s a boat that’s leaving soon for New York, and of course Summertime.

« Un personnage historique qui incarne l'Histoire de France », disait d'elle Frédéric Mitterrand le 18 mars 2010, au lendemain de sa réception à l'Académie française, où elle est la sixième femme à porter l'épée.
Libre et véhémente, exigeante et sereine, Simone Veil (née en 1927), ex-ministre de la Santé, à l'origine de la légalisation de l'IVG, reste une combattante en lutte pour la justice et le respect de la personne, la cause des femmes, l'adoption et les droits de l'enfant. Mais aussi pour l'Europe, qu'elle incarne et porte avec passion. Enfin, pour la mémoire, quitte à s'opposer aux suggestions de Nicolas Sarkozy dans ce domaine…

Le cloporte est frappé d'une malédiction : les Wolbachia, des bactéries parasites, transforment les mâles en femelles. Le sort de la chenille du papillon n'est guère plus enviable. Elle héberge la larve d'une guêpe qui jour après jour la dévore de l'intérieur. Quant au gammare, petit crustacé des étangs, c'est le ver Microphallus qui s'empare de son cerveau et le rend complètement fou. Bienvenue sur terre. Bienvenue dans le monde des parasites, pique-assiettes et autres profiteurs. Impossible de leur échapper, ils sont partout et prennent toutes les formes …
