The 100 Best Australian Albums from the Author: John O'Donnell. Australian music has a proud, colourful and successful history. In 2008, Australian rock and roll turned 50. This book names the best Australian albums of the last 50 years. It places each album in order (from 1 u 100) and discusses why each album deserves its place. It tells the story behind the making of the album, where the album fits in the artist's career and the album's impact on the local and world stage etc. The entries will feature new interviews with the artists and the producers/managers involved in the recording and the release of the album. It wouldn't be a good list if it didn't polarise people and we hope that this list will. We also hope that it will get people sitting around comparing their favourites and discovering or re-discovering these great albums and others. With 70 years of loving and writing about Australian music between us, we shamelessly believe we've earned the right to write this book. And we think we've got it right. Let the debate begin.o u John O'Donnell, April 2010 Finally, here is a much-needed list of argument-starting top 100 seminal/ influential/essential Australian albums of all time. Let the fight begin!

Jene, die ihnen dienten – die Begabten – wurden nur verschont, weil sie sich dem rigiden neuen Gesetz unterworfen haben, das ihre Macht beschränkt. Der junge Begabte Davian und seine Freunde wachsen in einer Welt auf, die sie verachtet und strengstens überwacht. Doch als Davian herausfindet, dass er über die bei Todesstrafe verbotene Magie der Seher verfügt, setzt er eine Kette von Ereignissen in Gang, die alles für immer verändern werden. Denn im Norden regt sich ein Feind, den man zu lange besiegt glaubte ... James Islingtons Fantasy-Saga nahm zunächst Australien im Sturm ein; nun schickt sich "Das Erbe der Seher" an, die Welt zu erobern!

La Musica Dell Assenza from the Author: Gianluca Grossi. Chalga, fado, lavarti, rebetiko, morna... Sono musiche che abbiamo a malapena sentito nominare. In realtà nascondono mondi incredibilmente variegati, microcosmi esistenziali dove l'umanità trova il suo più ampio respiro. Non hanno nulla a che vedere con l'universo mainstream, ma proprio per questo conservano caratteristiche uniche, perfettamente in linea con il concetto di musica pura e incontaminata. Molte di esse sono figlie della sofferenza e dell'emarginazione e riguardano figure leggendarie che hanno segnato percorsi storici epocali. I musicisti ra'f, per esempio, patiscono il dominio dei colonizzatori francesi (e poi quello degli integralisti); quelli csangó non si sono ancora liberati dall'ansia di far parte di un paese che è e non è il loro. La musica che abbiamo ascoltato fino a oggi potrebbe non essere quella che meglio mette a fuoco la nostra quotidianità. L'alternativa, allora, può essere quella ricamata da uno strumento che non abbiamo mai ascoltato, come lo shamisen giapponese, la cobza moldava o lo zither austriaco. Contrariamente a quanto si creda, queste musiche non sono morte, ma vive e vegete, e in certi casi addirittura in espansione. La musica dell'assenza, titolo preso dallo scritto introduttivo di Vinicio Capossela, le va a cercare in ogni angolo di mondo raccontandone la storia, l'evoluzione, gli esponenti principali e gli strumenti più rappresentativi, svelando come dietro ogni canzone ci sia una lezione sociale e morale.
