Thinking in Four Dimensions: Creativity and Cognition in Contemporary Dance

Robin Grove, Catherine J. Stevens, Shirley McKechnie "Thinking in Four Dimensions: Creativity and Cognition in Contemporary Dance"
Publisher: Melbourne University Press (December 2004) | 219 Pages | ISBN: 0522851452 | PDF | 2.3 MB

This collaboration between artists, choreographers, researchers, experimental psychologists and cognitive scientists investigates ways in which choreographers and performers make innovative, expressive movement, and audiences interpret what may well be a previously unmapped experience. "Thinking in Four Dimensions" is the first book to address the cognitive processes that underpin the creation of new works of contemporary dance. With case studies including data gathered from dance audiences as well as psychological analysis of new dance works, plus interviews with artists and video of performance pieces, "Thinking in Four Dimensions" is a unique package. "Thinking in Four Dimensions" is available in two formats. The e-book version incorporates text, full-colour images and video, which gives access to unique footage of choreographers and performers creating important new Australian dance works. The d-book is a print-on-demand version of the text with black and white images. This exciting collection of essays suggests that dance-making can be a form of imaginative enquiry - a thinking in time and space - both for those who perform it, and for those who watch.

Erotic Triangles: Sundanese Dance and Masculinity in West Java

Erotic Triangles: Sundanese Dance and Masculinity in West Java (Chicago Studies in Ethnomusicology) by Henry Spiller
English | Sep. 15, 2010 | ISBN: 0226769593 | 271 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

In West Java, Indonesia, all it takes is a woman’s voice and a drum beat to make a man get up and dance. Every day, men there—be they students, pedicab drivers, civil servants, or businessmen—breach ordinary standards of decorum and succumb to the rhythm at village ceremonies, weddings, political rallies, and nightclubs. The music the men dance to varies from traditional gong ensembles to the contemporary pop known as dangdut, but they consistently dance with great enthusiasm. In Erotic Triangles, Henry Spiller draws on decades of ethnographic research to explore the reasons behind this phenomenon, arguing that Sundanese men use dance to explore and enact contradictions in their gender identities.

Dance Naked is the 13th album by American singer-songwriter and musician John Mellencamp released in 1994. The most notable accomplishment was the largely successful single "Wild Night," a cover of the 1971 song by Van Morrison. The song featured Me'shell Ndegeocello on a duet with Mellencamp as well as the prominent bass lead. The single reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and charted at #1 on the Adult Contemporary List for 8 weeks. The album itself reached #13 on the Billboard 200. Spin Magazine named Dance Naked the 20th best album of 1994.

After several years of few recordings, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers re-emerged with totally new personnel on this Prestige LP. The strongest performance is a quartet feature for the great trumpeter Woody Shaw on "I Can't Get Started," but the other three selections (which include such musicians as George Cables or John Hicks on keyboards, bassist Stanley Clarke and Ramon Morris on reeds) are also worth hearing and sound surprisingly "contemporary" for the time. An interesting set.
