Computational Rhythm Description
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is about musical rhythm. More precisely, it is concerned with computer programs that automatically extract rhythmic descriptions from musical audio signals.New algorithms are presented for tempo induction, tatum estimation, time signature determination, swing estimation, swing transformations and classification of ballroom dance music styles. These algorithms directly process digitized recordings of acoustic musical signals. The backbones of these algorithms are rhythm periodicity functions: functions measuring the salience of a rhythmic pulse as a function of the period (or frequency) of the pulse, calculated from selected instantaneous physical attributes (henceforth features) emphasizing rhythmic aspects of sound. This book substantially contributes to the field of computational rhythm description by proposing an unifying functional framework, by reviewing the architecture of many existing systems with respect to individual blocks of this framework, by reporting on the first public evaluation of tempo induction algorithms, and by identifying promising research directions.

In Tango: Creation of a Cultural Icon Jo Baim dispels common stereotypes of the tango and tells the real story behind this rich and complex dance. Despite its exoticism, the tango of this time period is a very accessible dance, especially as European and North American dancers adapted it. Modern ballroom dancers can enjoy a 'step' back in time with the descriptions included in this book. Almost as interesting as the history of the tango is the cultural response to it: cities banned it, army officers were threatened with demotion if caught dancing it, clergy and politicians wrote diatribes against it. Newspaper headlines warned that people died from dancing the tango and that it would be the downfall of civilization. The vehemence of these anti-tango outbursts confirms one thing: the tango was a cultural force to be reckoned with!

“[Rita Mae Brown] enlivens a timely tale with . . . amusing accounts of her four-legged creations and delightful descriptions of the central Virginia countryside.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch New York Times bestselling author Rita Mae Brown bounds to the front of the pack with Fox Tracks, the thrilling new mystery in her beloved foxhunting series featuring the indomitable “Sister” Jane Arnold and, among others, the boisterous company of horses and hounds. Now, as a string of bizarre murders sweeps the East Coast, this unlikely alliance must smoke out a devious killer who may be closer than they first think.   While outside on Manhattan’s Midtown streets a fierce snowstorm rages, nothing can dampen the excitement inside the elegant ballroom of Manhattan’s Pierre Hotel. Hunt clubs from all over North America have gathered for their annual gala, and nobody is in higher spirits than “Sister” Jane, Master of the Jefferson Hunt in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Braving the foul weather, Sister and her young friend “Tootie” Harris pop out to purchase cigars for the celebration at a nearby tobacco shop, finding themselves regaled by the colorful stories of its eccentric proprietor, Adolfo Galdos.   Yet the trip’s festive mood goes to ground later with the grisly discovery of Adolfo’s corpse. The tobacconist was shot in the head but found, oddly enough, with a cigarette pack of American Smokes laid carefully over his heart.   When a similar murder occurs in Boston, Sister’s “horse sense” tells her there’s a nefarious plot afoot—one that seems to originate in the South’s aromatic tobacco farms. Meanwhile, Sister’s nemesis, Crawford Howard, will stop at nothing to subvert the Jefferson Hunt Club. There’s more than one shadowy scheme in the works in Albemarle County, and some conspirators are unafraid of taking shots at those evidencing too keen an interest in other people’s business. When Sister voices her suspicions, she, too, becomes a target. Fortunately for her, the Master of the Jefferson Hunt may rely upon the wits and wiles of her four-legged friends—including horses Lafayette and Matador, the powerful hound, Dragon, and even the clever old red fox, Uncle Yancy!   From Manhattan’s gritty streets to the pastoral beauty of Virginia horse country, Fox Tracks features the beloved characters from past Sister Jane novels in a fascinating new intrigue. This sly, fast-paced mystery gives chase from sizzling start to stunning finish!   Praise for Rita Mae Brown’s “Sister” Jane novels   “Brown is a keen plotter who advances her story with well-placed clues and showy suspects.”— The New York Times Book Review   “[Brown] succeeds in conjuring a world in which prey are meant to survive the chase and foxes are knowing collaborators.”— People   “One of the most entertaining amateur sleuths since those of Agatha Christie.”— Booklist

The Whiskey Merchant's Diary
29,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Joseph J. Mersman was a liquor merchant, a German American immigrant who aspired— with success— to become a self-made man. The diary he kept from 1847 to 1864 provides an intriguing account of life in Cincinnati and St. Louis— America’ s emerging frontier. Outside of Gold Rush diaries and emigration journals, few narrative records of the antebellum period have been published. As a record of both the man and the time in which he lived, 'The Whiskey Merchant’ s Diary' is a valuable resource for social historians, providing significant details about bachelorhood, whiskey making, ballroom dancing, circus history, card games, steamboat transportation, gender roles, theater history, and Victorian etiquette. The diary is also the story of a man who confronted serious disease, and his descriptions of cholera and syphilis are exceptional.
