In 1957, New York photojournalist Jerry Dantzic spent time with the iconic singer Billie Holiday during a two-week run of performances at the Newark, New Jersey, nightclub Sugar Hill. The resulting images offer a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse of Billie with her family, friends and her pet chiuhuaha, Pepe; playing with her godchild (son of her autobiography's co-author, William Dufty); washing dishes at the Duftys' home; walking the streets of Newark; in her hotel room; waiting backstage or having a drink in front of the stage; and performing. The years and the struggles seem to vanish when she sings: her face lights up. Later that year, Dantzic photographed her at the second New York Jazz Festival at Randall's Island, in colour. Only a handful of the photographs in this book have ever been published.

More than a musical genre, more than a mode of dress or dance, hip hop is a way of life. Born in the Seventies, on the multicultural streets of New York, hip hop is the result of numerous cultural influences, reworked through continuous experimentation, processes of globalisation, and media and commercial exposure. Rich in photographs, graphics and illustrations, this book celebrates the multiform imagery of hip hop culture, explaining the underlying meaning of hip hop slang, the origin of the look and the unmistakeable rhythm. It traces its evolution from the street to the catwalk, from videoclips to TV series, from New York block parties to controversial celebrities and stardom. A tribute to the historical and cultural value of the movement, Hip Hop: From Street Culture to Global Trend will be an inexhaustible source of inspiration for all lovers of music, fashion and graphics. Enter hip hop's extraordinary world.

"Depuis les années 1960, le rock fait partie, avec d'autres cultures populaires comme la science-fiction, des nouvelles sources d'inspiration et de réflexions que détournent les artistes plasticiens. Célébrée avec nostalgie ou parodiée avec virulence, sa "religion" hante, depuis le pop art, tout un pan de l'art contemporain de ses distorsions électriques et refrains diaboliques. Associé à l'art, le rock élargit le spectre d'une sensibilité désormais partagée : de la révolte politique à la crise identitaire en passant par le nihilisme artistique. Abondamment illustré par des reproductions d'oeuvres et des documents d'archives, ce livre aborde la production éclectique du combo que forment l'art et le rock, suivant trois grandes modes: le folk des sixties avec son étrangeté vernaculaire, le glam des années 1970 avec sa théâtralité extravagante, et enfin le mouvement punk dont la rage rebelle produira dans les années 1980 nombre de projets indépendants et alternatifs en réaction à l'industrie musicale. La discographie et l'iconographie de cette formation croisée s'y déclinent en de multiples formules, allant du design d'album rock par des artistes à la formation de groupes, en passant par les multiples relations, tantôt critiques, tantôt complices, que ces deux cultures ne cessent d'entretenir aujourd'hui par-delà leurs divergences."--Page 4 of cover.

The definitive monograph of Glen E. Friedman, a pioneer of skate, punk, and hip-hop photography, including much never-before-published work. Glen E. Friedman is best known for his work capturing and promoting rebellion in his portraits of artists such as Fugazi, Black Flag, Ice-T, Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat, The Misfits, Bad Brains, Beastie Boys, Run-D.M.C., and Public Enemy, as well as classic skateboarding originators such as Tony Alva, Jay Adams, Alan Ollie Gelfand, Duane Peters, and Stacy Peralta, and a very young Tony Hawk. Designed in association with celebrated street and graphic artist Shepard Fairey, this monograph captures the most important and influential underground heroes of skateboarding, punk, and hip-hop cultures. My Rules is an unprecedented window into the three most significant countercultures of the last quarter of the twentieth century, and Friedman's photographs define those important movements that he helped shape. A remarkable chronicle and a primer about the origins of radical street cultures, My Rules is also a statement of artistic inspiration for those influenced by these countercultures.

"Iannis Xenakis (1922-2001), ce polymathe par excellence, n'a en fait peut-être jamais réfléchi ni agi en tant que musicien, ou comme architecte seulement. En fait, il incarnait intégralement son propre modèle "d'artiste concepteur", s'inspirant à la fois des sciences et de tous les arts. Louvoyant savamment entre le faire et le percevoir, Musique, Architecture, Mathématiques, Arts plastiques, Littérature, Danse, Film... sont ici confrontés au sein d'autres sphères poreuses (d'ordre philosophique, esthétique, sociopolitique, culturel... par exemple), n'oubliant aucunement, par devers ces disciplines complémentaires, l'espace sensible de la composition et de la création de spectacles vivants. En somme, à partir de l'oeuvre et de la pensée de Iannis Xenakis, la philosophie du présent Cahier invite à une tribune permanente. Ayant à coeur de s'exprimer à la lecture attentive des multiples matériaux légués au CIX (articles, schémas, correspondances, partitions, bandes magnétiques, photographies, discographie, captations vidéos...), elle s'exercera de fait au travers de la pluralité interdisciplinaire des données principielles. Un partenariat s'est engagé depuis plusieurs années entre le GRHIS de l'Université de Rouen, l'association CIX (Centre Iannis Xenakis) et l'Ensa Normandie, concrétisé par des colloques, expositions et concerts. Il nous semblait alors évident d'en faire acte par la publication de ce Cahier de l'Ensa Normandie consacré à "Xenakis et les arts"."--P. [4] of cover.

18. John Cage [2011]

Book
x, 220 p. : ill. ; 24 cm.
John Cage (1912--1992) defined a radical practice of composition that changed the course of modern music and shaped a new conceptual horizon for postwar art. Famous for his use of chance and "silence" in musical works, a pioneer in electronic music and the nonstandard use of instruments, Cage was one of the most influential composers of the last century. This volume traces a trajectory of writings on the artist, from the earliest critical reactions to the scholarship of today. If the first writing on Cage in the American context, often written by close associates with Cage's involvement, seemed lacking in critical distance, younger scholars--a generation removed--have recently begun to approach the legacy from a new perspective, with more developed theoretical frameworks and greater skepticism. This book captures that evolution. The texts include discussions of Cage's work in the context of the New Music scene in Germany in the 1950s; Yvonne Rainer's essay looking back on Cage and New York experimentalism of the 1960s; a complex and original mapping of Cage's place in a wider avant-garde genealogy that includes Le Corbusier and Moholy-Nagy; a musicologist's account of Cage's process of defining and formalizing his concept of indeterminacy; and an analysis of Cage's project that considers his strategies of self-representation as key to his unique impact on modern and postmodern art.
