Edward Burra (1905-76) was one of the most elusive British artists of the 20th century. Long underrated, his reputation has been suddenly rehabilitated, with the first major retrospective of his work for 25 years taking place in 2011 and record-breaking prices being paid for his work at auction. In this film, the first serious documentary about Edward Burra made for television, leading art critic Andrew Graham-Dixon tells the remarkable story of his life. Crippled by a rare form of arthritis from an early age, Burra placed art at the centre of his life from his teenage years onwards.

The tender musical heart of this enchanted take on The Man Who Fell to Earth belongs to composer Edward Shearmur, who turns in a largely synthesized score where spare, delicate piano melodies often recall Thomas Newman's deft sense of space and dynamics. While the general musical ethos seems a throwback to the mid-'80s heyday of pioneering electronic scores by Vangelis and Tangerine Dream, contemporary technical advances have allowed Shearmur to impart an ethereal and distinctly organic aural patina to these cues. Though informed by his atmospheric session work with Pink Floyd (The Division Bell), Shearmur's K-PAX score stands apart: quiet, mystically introspective music that seems as uncomplicated–and yet innately profound–as an autumn breeze.

If your Latin jazz collection centers mainly around styles from Cuba and Brazil, pianist Edward Simon would like you to consider expanding your library to include musical influences from a culturally diverse land geographically situated between those two countries – namely Venezuela, where he was born and lived until the age of 12. Simon is an acclaimed post-bop and modern creative jazz pianist in his adopted country of the United States, and while Latin American elements have certainly seasoned his recorded output to date, this 2014 Sunnyside release finds him focusing more intently than ever on the nexus between creative jazz and the folk music of his home country. The album's title is derived from "Venezuelan Suite," whose four parts fill over 28 minutes of the disc's concise 38-minute duration. Simon composed the suite for his Ensemble Venezuela, and the ten-member version of the group heard here – including musicians from the U.S., Venezuela, and Colombia – is wonderfully vibrant, ably fulfilling the pianist's creative intent. Chamber Music America commissioned Simon to write this work, and he rose to the challenge with music that is suitably rich with timbral and textural variety.

Il ruolo delle formiche nella biosfera – ci dice Edward Wilson – è così importante che l'umanità forse non potrebbe sopravvivere senza di esse. E di certo non potrebbe sopravvivere senza batteri e archei, l'invisibile e onnipresente «materia oscura» dell'universo vivente della Terra. Ma l'umanità, prigioniera della propria strategia arcaica della sopravvivenza a breve termine, è ancora troppo concentrata su se stessa e sui propri bisogni, e sta distruggendo la natura con la forza di un meteorite. Entro la fine del secolo, metà di tutte le specie potrebbero essere definitivamente uscite di scena. Avrà allora inizio quella che potrebbe venire ricordata un giorno come l'Era eremozoica – l'Età della Solitudine. …

Sull’impatto dell’uomo sulla natura, che ormai sta creando danni incalcolabili alla biosfera, sono state ipotizzate centinaia di misure, che si sono però rivelate blande e inefficaci e che mai hanno portato risultati concreti. Stanco di assistere a questi fallimenti, il premio Pulitzer Edward Wilson – biologo da sempre interessato al rappporto tra l’uomo e le altre specie animali – propone una soluzione radicale, proporzionale alla gravità del problema che abbiamo di fronte: …

If jazz was ever meant to be a religion, its prayers might sound something like Nan Madol. The title means “spaces between,” and no description of this music could be more apt. The album is an eclectic mandala of drones, eruptions of ecstatic liberation, and snatches of melody from both near and far. Influences range from Japanese folk melodies to Alpine herding calls, and all of them strung by a powerful understatement of continuity.
