                           by Andrew Lindemann Malone

Paul Sacher commissioned Mystère de l'instant (Mystery of the instant), for twenty-four strings, cymbals, and percussion, from Henri Dutilleux. Dutilleux repaid the favor by dedicating the work to Sacher and making its ninth movement a fantasy on a transcription of Sacher's name into musical notes. Mystère de l'instant is an oddly structured work, even for Dutilleux: ten short movements with evocative titles, unconnected to each other except that they are played in sequence without pause, apparently without reaching any obvious goal. Yet all of the titles have something to do with the act of musical creation, and it may be this "instant," and it's the startling beauty and power, that Dutilleux wishes to explore. As a series of meditations on the composer's art, they make a strong impression. The work begins with the movement "Appels" ("Calls"), and the very high, hollow harmonies that eventually descend glossily into richer chords seem to evoke the "compositional space" between high and low tones that Dutilleux explored in Timbres, Espace, Mouvement. From there, some movements, like "Echos" and "Prismes," explore basic techniques of composition; "Echos" bounces a very slow idea back and forth between sections of strings, and "Prismes" refracts another idea by changing its pitch, dynamics, and timbre almost continuously. Other movements discuss basic compositional materials, like "Choral," with its solo string hovering over a low harmonic base. Movements like "Rumeurs," with its low chords rising to fever pitches and finally coalescing into a noise like a swarm of bumblebees, or "Soliloques," with its solo violin voice silenced in the middle, seem like personal ruminations about the act of composing in the world. Even the movement "Metamorphoses (sur le nom SACHER)" speaks to creation, since Sacher provided the impetus for the work's creation. Throughout, Dutilleux appropriately indulges his love of sound for sound's sake; there is no lack of gorgeous noises from the strings, and the battery of percussion is extensive and tastefully used. Dutilleux's timbral palette never fails him, and if perhaps no work of music can adequately convey the mystery of creation, Mystère de l'instant certainly makes a bold and worthy attempt.

NASA: Indonesia - Flores Sea - Thermal Sensor Lights Up from Volcanic Heat - 10.05.13

As the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) flew over Indonesia’s Flores Sea on April 29, 2013, the satellite’s Operational Land Imager (OLI) captured a natural-color image of Paluweh volcano spewing ash (top). The Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS) on LDCM got a different view of the same event (bottom).
Observing the heat emanating from the five-mile-wide volcanic island, TIRS revealed a hot spot where lava was oozing near the top of the volcano. The sensor also showed the coolness of the ash relative to the warmth of the tropical ocean surface below, as the darker hue of the plume represents cooler temperatures.
To Betsy Forsbacka, the combination of the two LDCM instruments illustrates an insight first attributed to Aristotle: The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. “Each instrument by itself is magnificent,” said Forsbacka, TIRS instrument manager at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. “When you put them together, with the clues that each give you about Earth’s surface, it’s greater than either could do by themselves.”
The LDCM team is excited about TIRS because it has ability to capture the sharp boundary between hot lava and cooler volcanic ash without the signal from the hot spot bleeding over into pixels of the cooler areas. TIRS engineers tested and refined the instrument before launch to ensure that each pixel correctly represents the heat source it images. Otherwise, Forsbacka said, looking at hot spots would be like shining a flashlight in your eyes; the bright light makes you see spots and halos where it should be dark. The same effect can occur with satellite detectors.
TIRS also can detect subtle shifts in temperature—within a tenth of a degree Celsius. With two different thermal bands (instead of one, like previous Landsat sensors), LDCM should make it easier for scientists to get a more accurate temperature of Earth’s surface. Observing land surface temperatures from space can be difficult because moisture and particles in the atmosphere can slightly alter thermal signals. With TIRS, the atmosphere affects each thermal band slightly differently, resulting in one thermal image that’s a hair darker than the other. By measuring that difference and plugging it into image-analysis algorithms, scientists can better address atmospheric effects and create a more accurate temperature record of the Earth’s surface.

Poetry: Robert Frost - The Road Not Taken - Nothing Gold Can Stay - Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening - Bio Links



 The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.  

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.






Robert Lee Frost (March 26, 1874 – January 29, 1963) was an American poet. He is highly regarded for his realistic depictions of rural life and his command of American colloquial speech.[1] His work frequently employed settings from rural life in New England in the early twentieth century, using them to examine complex social and philosophical themes. One of the most popular and critically respected American poets of his generation, Frost was honored frequently during his lifetime, receiving four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry.

Poesia: Joaquim Machado de Assis - A Mosca Azul - Flor da Mocidade - Livros e Flores - Bio Links



 A Mosca Azul

Era uma mosca azul, asas de ouro e granada,
Filha da China ou do Indostão.
Que entre as folhas brotou de uma rosa encarnada.
Em certa noite de verão.

E zumbia, e voava, e voava, e zumbia,
Refulgindo ao clarão do sol
E da lua — melhor do que refulgiria
Um brilhante do Grão-Mogol.

 Flor da Mocidade

Eu conheço a mais bela flor;
És tu, rosa da mocidade,
Nascida aberta para o amor.
Eu conheço a mais bela flor.
Tem do céu a serena cor,
E o perfume da virgindade.
Eu conheço a mais bela flor,
És tu, rosa da mocidade.
Vive às vezes na solidão,
Como filha da brisa agreste.
Teme acaso indiscreta mão;
Vive às vezes na solidão.
Poupa a raiva do furacão
Suas folhas de azul celeste.
Vive às vezes na solidão,
Como filha da brisa agreste.
Colhe-se antes que venha o mal,
Colhe-se antes que chegue o inverno;
Que a flor morta já nada val.
Colhe-se antes que venha o mal.
Quando a terra é mais jovial
Todo o bem nos parece eterno.
Colhe-se antes que venha o mal,
Colhe-se antes que chegue o inverno.

Livros e Flores

Teus olhos são meus livros.
Que livro há aí melhor,
Em que melhor se leia
A página do amor?

Flores me são teus lábios.
Onde há mais bela flor,
Em que melhor se beba
O bálsamo do amor?
