James Blackshaw & Lubomyr Melnyk - The Watchers (2013, Important Records)

Lubomyr Melnyk and James Blackshaw are musicians with recognizable and kindred styles of how they play their instruments. Lubomyr Melnyk plays notes on grand piano rapidly but softly, sustained, creating overtonal hum from which melodic layer emerges. James Blackshaw's style of playing his 12-string guitar has two strands to it - one is Takoma inspired finger-picking and second is overtonal tinkling - which together in long-form compositions give it the same feeling of perpetualness as can be found in Lubomyr Melnyk's music. One day they have met in The Vortex Jazz Café and stayed there for six hours improvising music together. The Watchers is a result of this meeting.

Bibliography of videos about file-sharing, copyright, intellectual property and remix culture (Version 0.1)

The new media have changed how the works of art are both created and distributed. The computer as a convergent tool of production has lowered the barriers for creative expression through sampling, remixing, creating derivative works, translations,... and the process of distribution has been changed massively by the wide-spread internet and by near-zero price of copying and sharing digital files, ease of global spread and emerging sharing communities.
