Une histoire musicale du rockChristophe Pirenne Date de Parution : 02/11/2011Collection : MusiquePrix public TTC : 29,90 €Code ISBN / EAN : 9782213624303Format (153 x 235)Nombre de pages : 800 Que devrait nous raconter une histoire du rock ? La plupart des ouvrages disponibles sur le sujet se focalisent sur les musiciens, les firmes de disques, le sens des paroles ou les secrets des enregistrements ; ils abondent en biographies tumultueuses, en anecdotes sordides et en interviews décapantes, mais ils sont presque tous construits sur une absence : celle de la musique.Christophe Pirenne propose une alternative. En partant des œuvres, c’est-à-dire des sons, des rythmes, des accords, des instruments, mais aussi des postures capillaires et vestimentaires, l’auteur tente d’expliquer comment se forment les genres, pourquoi rien ne se répète tout en n’étant jamais véritablement neuf et surtout pourquoi ces musiques ont pu un jour bouleverser nos vies. De That’s All Right (1954) d’Elvis Presley à Jesus Walks (2004) de Kanye West, des dizaines de chansons sont ainsi décortiquées pour tenter de mettre à jour ce qui a pu leur valoir d’ouvrir la voie à des genres musicaux originaux dans lesquels des milliers voire des millions de gens ont pu se reconnaître. Ces chansons, ces textes musicaux ne naissent évidemment pas de rien. Pour qu’ils existent il faut des ingénieurs du son et leurs technologies, des journalistes et leurs médias, de managers et leurs dollars, des politiques et leurs lois, des fans et leurs attentes, des Noirs, des Féministes, des Gays, des Blancs… Les œuvres et les genres auxquels elles sont associées sont donc replacées dans leur contexte afin de cerner les conditions de leur émergence.Christophe Pirenne, convaincu des vertus de l’encyclopédisme dans un monde aux savoirs morcelés, enseigne l’histoire de la musique et les politiques culturelles dans les Universités de Liège et de Louvain-la-Neuve. Il est l’auteur de plusieurs ouvrages sur les musiques actuelles.
Born in Mississippi, a young kid named Elvis Presley came to Memphis as a teenager and changed music forever. Fusing country and rhythm and blues with rock, Elvis brought traditional African-American sounds to the forefront of music in the 1950s, but he did so as a handsome white man before the height of the Civil Rights Movement. On top of that, his famous stage fright led to the hip gyrations that would make him the envy of young girls and the scorn of their parents. What followed was rock music´s perfect storm. Managed by Colonel Tom Parker, Elvis became the biggest music act in the world, producing about holiday classics, love ballads, and up-tempo rock songs that all hit the top of the charts in the late ´50s. Elvis merged the quintessential rock star looks with success, scoring nearly 20 #1 singles. With live broadcasts on TV appearances and movie roles, Elvis became a pop culture fixture and a music icon that made even The Beatles giddily nervous to meet him. Given the unprecedented success of his musical career, the last decade of Elvis´s life is a tragic tale of substance abuse, controversy, and an inevitable slide down from the top, as new music acts started to eclipse him. Despite all that, however, Elvis´ sudden death, like his meteoric rise to fame, shook the world, when he was found dead in his bathroom in 1977 at just 42 years old. Fittingly, Elvis has been just as big in death as he ever was in life. His fame never waned, and in 1982, portions of Graceland were opened to the public and it quickly became the third most visited home in the United States behind the White House and Biltmore. Elvis´ had a fervent following during his life, but it morphed into something borderline religious following his death. His fans, who remain tirelessly devoted decades after his passing, make pilgrimages to Graceland, treating it like a shrine. Legends of Music: The Life and Legacy of Elvis Presley chronicles the amazing story of how... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robin McKay.

From the point of view of 2050, you´re history. Theological warfare. Elvis on an epic time-travel journey - the Presliad. Buddhavision - a network bigger than God (and more powerful, too). Nasty nuclear leftovers. Naughty sex habits. Dalai Dan (the 153rd reincarnation of the Lama of that ilk) and Barry, the talkative Time Sprout. Even with all this excitement, you wouldn´t think a backwater planet like Earth makes much of a splash in the galatic pond. But the soap opera called The Earthers is making big video bucks in the intergalactic ratings race. And alien TV execs know exactly what the old earth drama needs to make the off-world audience sit up and stare: a spectacular Armageddon-type finale. With a cast of millions - including you! Don’t touch that dial - it’s gonne be one helluva show… Robert Rankin describes himself as a teller of tall tales. The Morning Star describes him as ´The Master of Silliness´, and his publisher describes him as ‘The Master of Far Fetched Fiction’. He is the author of more than thirty novels, of which he has sold millions of copies, and he makes people laugh around the world. Robert loves going on tour, signing books for readers, and his appearances at signings and conventions are legendary, often including a stand-up routine, a song (accompanied by his ´air-ukulele´), and an always-entertaining question-and-answer session. 1.
