Manifesto for the book: Thirteen [for luck] by Krzysztof Ogonowski.

 


Together with: the crisis of faith, worldview and human relations, m-theory connected with theory of strings, global and commercial internet, mass devastation of natural environment, conflicts and nuclear threat, the biggest economic crisis and so on the world we know ended!
I have no willingness to live in this time and space, where there in no place for: proximity and faith, courage and honour- in the world where in the chronic sense of emptiness reigns. This is why I think that the duty of today’s art and science is tenewed redefinition of basic valnes in a manner that is comprehensible to everyone.
The key to the solution of Everything (reneved redefinition) is the geometrical theory of strings in its broadest dimension of m-theory. It is this theory that gives hope. The aim of redefinition is to create new space-time continuum, that is a new dimension of valnes, natural environment, economy, etc.
My attempt is: Thirteen – painting and texts. It is a definition of primitive notions, where each is potentially true and potentially false. The point of departure is: Plato’s solids (and others), curves, spheres-the aim, however, (not attainable at this stage) is the Calabi Yan’s manifold.

"American Boys" Carrie Wade Live at Molly Malone's Los Angeles

"Beyond Struggle" by Carrie Wade, U.S.A.

______________________________________________________
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
Genre: Americana / Pop Rock / Alt-Country 

 

With a picturesque sound that is distinctly American yet colored by the exotic, Carrie Wade is a recording artist who delivers her personal evocations with powerful subtlety and a sublime sense of emotion. Filmic textures harken back to the classic soundtracks of the 1960s, from which melancholy and simplicity of the time merge into the modern world of today where Wade’s songs move the audience in the sometimes violent, sometimes peaceful ebb and flow of living. 

 

Wade’s debut album, The Old Ways blends a palette of disparate genres and unusual instrumentation into an artful whole of beautiful substance. Wade conceived The Old Ways in collaboration with two select co-producers. As a multi-instrumentalist, Peter Kearns of New Zealand provided arrangements incorporating funky piano, swirling mellotron, harmonium, and elegant string arrangements among other inventive combinationsBruce Springsteen cohort Marty Rifkin lent to The Old Ways a refined sense of Country, Blues, Folk, and Rock with his Nashville-caliber command of pedal and lap steel, dobro, electric and bass guitar...

Hometown: Traverse City   MI  USA

Genre: Acoustic / Acoustic Guitar

 

James Filkins is a fingerstyle acoustic guitar player using primarily alternate tunings. With a style that is a bit new age, a bit Celtic and a bit just plain hard to describe but ALL acoustic! James writes and records original instrumental music that is acoustically melodic, moody and textured. His music has been described as "Like a continuous flow of inspiration of the deeper layers of the soul...  almost impressionistic... shifting and drifting through a beautiful haze of sound ...guitar miniatures that tell stories within themselves.”

Filkins’ finds inspiration in the beauty and tranquility of Northwestern Lower Michigan where he has resided for the past 35 years.  He also finds inspiration in handmade acoustic guitars like his custom McIlroy AJ25c, used to record many of the tunes heard on his CD Borderline Normal . He has also featured guitars made by Tim McKnight  and  Simon Fay. Several of his tunes have also been heard Roadtrip Nation which airs on PBS. Look for a new CD in the Spring.
