Complex Time for Consciousness and Creativity in Music

Num°21 SYNTHESIS
mazzola

In this paper, I argue that complex time (with real plus imaginary components) could be a key to some of the most virulent problems in the artistic reality of music, namely the nature of artistic consciousness and creativity, especially in the performing perspective of music. The performing musician faces a complex combination of memory, technique, gestures, and the balance in the famous temporal καιρός between past and future moments. Successful musical performance is a highly creative and complex activity. Leggi tutto »

Sentiments, Analysis, And Elections

Num°19 ELECTIONS
Manassero

Since search engines and social networks have started being widely used by an enormous amount of users, advertising has always been their primary business model: presenting the “right” ad to the right user, especially focusing on her interests. We assisted therefore to an important and pivotal change from the generically focused traditional advertising industry to a highly specific way to match ads and users, thanks to personal data the same users convey for free to search engines and social networks.

Mate, or the Everydayness of Charis and Kairós in deep America

Num°17 GRACE
MateBombillaCarou

“Mate,” a Guarani beverage very popular in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, and southern Brazil, is much more than a simple infusion: it makes social bonds stronger, it becomes a symbol of  community identity, and it works as a metaphor for divine love, or what we can call “grace.” This is because of its resistance, its capacity to build bridges; it feeds, it is lived with intimacy—people share the pipe that is used to drink it—and it also makes fraternity possible.
