Dirty wars ( visu )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 984 libraries worldwide
It's the dirty little secret of the War on Terror: all bets are off, and almost anything goes. The rules of the game and of engagement have fundamentally changed. Today drone strikes, night raids, and U.S. government targeted killings occur in corners across the globe, killing untold numbers of civilians. Investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill traces the rise of the Joint Special Operations Command, the most secret fighting force in U.S. history, exposing operations carried out by men who do not exist on paper and will never appear before Congress. No target is off-limits for the JSOC "kill list," not even U.S. citizens

In "Different trains" wird das musikalische Material aus Sprachaufnahmen abgeleitet. Aus Gesprächen wurden kurze Abschnitte ausgewählt, die sich mehr oder weniger klar einer bestimmten Tonhöhe zuordnen lassen. Diese Abschnitte wurden dann möglichst genau in Noten umgesetzt, erklingen im Werk ab Sampler und werden von den Instrumenten gedoppelt. Der Titel des Werkes und das sprachliche Material beziehen sich auf Eisenbahnzüge, in denen Juden in der Zeit des Zweiten Weltkrieges unterwegs waren: Das Kind Steve Reich in Amerika, und, unter ganz anderen Umständen, deutsche Juden in Europa

Requiem for a dream by Darren Aronofsky( visu )
5 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and German and held by 558 libraries worldwide
Four individuals living near Coney Island in Brooklyn suffer from their menacing addiction to heroin, cocaine, and speed. The drugs are very easily obtained and keep each in its cycle of dependence. Harry Goldfarb is your typical heroin junky with an ambitious plan of 'Getting off hard knocks, ' with help from his cocaine crazed girlfriend Marion and his long time friend Tyrone. In the mean time, his widowed mother is obsessed with the glamor of television and eventually finds her way to a dietitian who pushes her into the cycle of drug induced enslavement
Caravan by Kronos Quartet( Sound Recording )
5 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 544 libraries worldwide
The Kronos Quartet--apparently tired of performing some of the most riveting Western classical works composed in the last century--decided to take a vacation with Caravan . Where did they go? As evidenced by this globetrotting disc, seemingly everywhere. Music from the Middle East, South America, India, Portugal, and California (to name just a few) find their way onto this genre-blurring disc, along with a few surprises. They do a dizzying take on Dick Dale's "Miserlou," which we learn was originally written by Nicholas Roubanis in the '30s; perform a tune from India's bustling "Bollywood" film music industry; and tackle Terry Riley's inventive "Corgeo Funebre en el Monte Diablo"--The second movement of his Requiem for Adam (written for the late son of Kronos leader David Harrington). These are disparate but enthralling works that run the gamut from frenetic to reflective. Even though Caravan sounds less cohesive than Kronos's other world music foray, Pieces of Africa, this is still an enthralling collection and a must for Kronos fans. --Jason Verlinde
