Bright Lights, Big Shoulder Pads: A Timid Japan Recalls Its Bubble Era - The New York Times
She performs in a pop-music duo called Bed In that borrows heavily from the keyboard lines, electric drums and power chords of the ’80s. They dress ’80s, too: The shoulder pads are big, the skirts are mini and the hues are Day-Glo when they aren’t just plain shiny.

That era came to an abrupt end. Japan’s stock market crashed in 1990, and property prices plummeted. The period that followed is often called the Lost Decade, as Japan grappled with falling prices, slow growth and burdensome debt.

“I feel like back then, people weren’t afraid to be noticed,” said one dancer, Nanako Meguro, 18, who recently graduated from Tomioka High School in Osaka, about 250 miles southwest of Tokyo. “They wanted to be No. 1. I think that compared to people nowadays, everyone seemed to have a lot more confidence.”

Letter of Recommendation: Vivaldi’s ‘Winter’ - The New York Times

Even then I knew that my talent fell short of the mastery required for a real performing career, and I didn’t last long as a music major. But the sadness of my failure was mitigated by the promise of other passions. Winter had surpassed itself, leading me toward a life that I never would have had were it not for this random VHS rental.

For now, I am content to listen to recordings while silently following the sheet music, my fingers twitching involuntarily like the post-mortem spasms of a cadaver.

Apple and Shazam sing the same tune
The core audio-recognition software itself was created in Silicon Valley by Avery Wang, a specialist in digital signal processing with a PhD in electrical engineering from Stanford University.

Mr Wang was sitting in a café in Palo Alto in 2000 when he came up with the breakthrough technique for identifying a song from recordings, even with low-quality phone microphones and background noise. 

His original patent, filed in 2001 jointly with his Stanford professor Julius Smith, for a “system and methods for recognising sound and music signals in high noise and distortion” remains a foundational part of Shazam’s technology and intellectual property portfolio. 

Mr Wang is the only one of Shazam’s four co-founders still working at the company. After he joins Apple, along with the rest of Shazam’s research and development team in Silicon Valley’s Redwood City, the iPhone maker will have fresh capabilities not only in music identification but the ability to recognise a wide range of audio signals, from TV and movies to the sound of people laughing or clapping.

“Apple isn’t buying Shazam for music. Instead, Shazam is an augmented-reality play,” Neil Cybart, an Apple analyst, said in his Above Avalon email newsletter on Monday.

US companies, he adds, have been more successful at commercialisation and scaling up a new technology than their British counterparts. “What we are really good at in this country is innovation and creativity. We should try to play to our strengths and be willing to partner or sell out to US companies.”

12-year-old prodigy Alma Deutscher on homeschooling and Mozart

she is proudly out of step with the iGeneration. Lots of children spend all the time on video games, I don’t like that at all. I don’t have a phone or computer or anything, I just read a lot, she says, listing Philippa Pearce, Joan Aiken and Shannon Hale as some of her favourite authors. I don’t really know what they do — Minecraft or whatever — some of my friends do that but I think it’s a complete waste of time and it ruins your brain as well because you can’t imagine anything for yourself.

How Martin Luther has shaped Germany for half a millennium

Start with aesthetics. For Luther this was, like everything else, a serious matter. He believed that Christians were guaranteed salvation through Jesus but had a duty to live in such a way as to deserve it.

Ostentation was thus a disgraceful distraction from the asceticism required to examine one’s own conscience. The traces of this severity live on in Germany’s early 20th-century Bauhaus architecture, and even in the furniture styles at IKEA (from Lutheran Sweden).

The Swiss Protestants John Calvin and Huldrych Zwingli viewed music as sensual temptation and frowned on it. But to Luther music was a divinely inspired weapon against the devil. He wanted believers to sing together—in German, in church and at home, and with instruments accompanying them. Today Germany has 130 publicly financed orchestras, more than any other country. And concerts are still attended like sermons, sombrely and seriously.

Germany, the world’s 17th-most populous country, has the second-largest book market after America’s. After he translated the Bible into German, Luther wanted everyone, male or female, rich or poor, to read it. At first Protestants became more literate than Catholics; ultimately all Germans became bookish.

To Luther, Christians were already saved, so wealth was suspect. Instead of amassing it, Christians should work for their community, not themselves. Work (Beruf) thus became a calling (Berufung). Not profit but redistribution was the goal. According to Gerhard Wegner, a professor of theology, this “Lutheran socialism” finds secular expression in the welfare states of Scandinavia and Germany.

The Interpreter Friday, November 3, 2017
To me, jazz isn’t so different from other forms of Japanese pop culture. If you’ve ever read a Haruki Murakami novel or watched one of the famous Studio Ghibli movies, you will never forget their impressionistic surrealism. Their mood and structure can be jazz-like in their abstraction, intricacy and embrace of dissonance.

A Brooklyn Gospel Choir Goes to China | ChinaFile
This was the first of many surprises for the choir as it traversed China. Haye’s experience illuminates the contradictions and idiosyncrasies of the ongoing surge in spirituality in the nation of 1.4 billion people.

Amidst fast-paced economic development, a new generation in China is seeking more from life than material pleasure alone, and some are turning to religion. Christian fellowships are growing fastest among all faiths, at about 7 percent a year.

At this rate of expansion, in a few years China’s estimated 70 million Christians will outnumber members of the Communist Party, whose 90 million head count grew by just over 1 percent in 2015.

“I thought of communism, I thought of people being deprived or people not having personal identity or people having boundaries. I thought that communism meant that the government was oppressive,” said Haye.

It may be, Haye said, “But what I saw was people that, if given lemons, they made lemonade. They adapt.”

“We don’t think too much about how the government will treat us. We just have peace and joy and God. We just do everything we must do.”

Music in the age of the algorithm —
Distinction increasingly resides in the range of our listening, its eclecticism, not a narrow attachment to genre. Yet without a map, some sense of what we like and dislike, how do we make sense of the expanse of music stretching around us?

Why Spotify’s Move Past Genre Might Be Good for Music -
The streaming service is moving away from genres like hip-hop and indie rock, writes Farhad Manjoo at The Times, and toward music for particular moods, situations or times of day. Spotify has found that playlists designed for activities like running or partying are as popular as those that center on more traditional genres, and its new version will make recommendations accordingly — one morning, Mr. Manjoo was offered a playlist called “Epic Uplifting Sunrise.”

Genre distinctions ensure that lots of listeners who browse by genre only hear music by white people. Moving away from traditional genres in favor of other ways of choosing music might give listeners a more diverse selection, and give artists of color a bigger audience.

It’s worth remembering that musical genres aren’t objective descriptors. They’re labels with a particular history, often freighted by race. If mood- or time-based recommendations break listeners away from that history, they might be an improvement.

TidBITS: Is the iPad Air Right for You?
Music lovers will be thrilled by this overlooked tidbit: the iPad Air features stereo speakers — it’s the first full-size iPad to have them. While I’m no audiophile, they sound fantastic. I fired up Lorde’s hit song, “Royals,” and I could hear hints of the rich bass in the song’s opening notes. While nowhere near as deep as my Sony MDR-V6 headphones, it sounded better than the tinny speakers in my MacBook Pro.

China’s motorways: Get your kicks on Route G6 | The Economist
It is a slow toil through much of Inner Mongolia, as Zheng Jie found when she drove along the G6 with her husband and father on their way back from Tibet in October. Ms Zheng, who runs a headhunting firm in Beijing, laments what she calls a “blank space” of road-themed music to accompany China’s fast-developing car culture. There is no equivalent yet of Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again” to get drivers in the mood (she and her passengers spent much of their journey listening to syrupy new-age music). There is sadly little relief on the G6 in the form of what might be called highway haiku: garbled English translations on motorway signs that in their highest form have a poetic quality matching the rhythm of the road. Only one example worthy of the description offers itself (albeit hypnotically repeated) on the G6 Tibet-bound Rain or snowy day Bridge, slow driving

“汉江奇迹”与《江南风》 - 评论 - FT中文网
韩国说唱歌手朴载相(Psy)的音乐视频《江南风》(Gangnam Style)大获成功,点击量高达2.80亿次,它以一种怪异的(而且颇为吸引人的)方式体现了韩国的财富增长。这段舞蹈视频温和地嘲讽了那种暴发户式的、靠整形提高的生活方式。一场非同寻常的经济改革让这种生活方式成为可能,这一改革被称为“汉江奇迹”。
