At a time when the world celebrates the arrival of the first black president to the White House, we felt the story crying out for a man who was later in his time that we now suggests Barack Obama. I'm speaking of Ray Charles, or simply Ray! A man with creative Sunday to create while producing his epic alive in the form of art to attract crowds through music. At the time of Ray, was creating a playful way of living, which for many, was a turn off for a singer of color and with visual impairments. But, it was not! It was pure art from inside a guy who has learned to transform the pain of a life badly lived-in art to be heard anywhere in the world.

Podcast 30 - Getting Ride in the Past

  1. 1. Pod 30 – Getting ride in the past _____________________________________________________ by Luciene Santos* At a time when the world celebrates the arrival of the first black president to the White House, we felt the story crying out for a man who was later in his time that we now suggests Barack Obama. I'm speaking of Ray Charles, or simply Ray! A man with creative Sunday to create while producing his epic alive in the form of art to attract crowds through music. At the time of Ray, was creating a playful way of living, which for many, was a turn off for a singer of color and with visual impairments. But, it was not! It was pure art from inside a guy who has learned to transform the pain of a life badly lived-in art to be heard anywhere in the world. Despite the difficult childhood, the obstacles were not bet before the talents of a composer of sophisticated and unique lineage. Ray sang and delighted by the form of ring finger unparalleled in a soft piano bar syrup and spicy. From its legacy were more creative than lessons for the new generations. They were lessons that go beyond mere composition of musical notes of success. Ray sang in a time when the record companies tried to impose reins to his talent rebel and above, out of range. In their veins, in addition to the pure black blood, I ran the aesthetics of remix, a time that the mixture proposed by Martin Luther King was only speech to a middle class who could barely understand the fever of Elvis. What now become fashionable, at that time was pure heresy. But singer Ray knew delight of everything: jazz, soul, gospel, country music, Rhythm'n'Blues, the blues of eternal imposes osidade of you who never was ready to be molded by someone. In the golden years for the pain, Ray has lived the peak of the mixture as if it were the truth that should have guided us forever. What the time Ray was a mixture of creative and genuine, this is a subtle line that separates the remix of plagiarism. While plagiarism omits sources of creation, the remix celebrates and exposes, says Henry Jenkins, in the book quot;Convergence Culture.quot; The remix seeking to build a dialogue with the past rather than for you to claim authorship
  2. 2. _____________________________________________________ of anything. In remix, production is collective, participatory and collaborative, establishing social networks where it is allowed that all works can live together peacefully. In the middle of the road, the copyright laws inhibit the growth culture, restricting the use of works to their owners. If the culture is the humanity, such as thinking on the logic alquímicos that sees the culture born of nothing, as if it were only the result of the artist's head? Indeed, Einstein has not created the Theory of Relativity without realizing the mistakes of their predecessors. As Jenkins says, the great literary works took ride in the past, removing him the resources they needed to promote the cultural expansion. In any creative process, the artist built from the existing culture. But for that to happen on a continuous and healthy, we all need to learn to respect the culture, giving credit to the authors of the material we use. Otherwise, it is the death of the artist and those who learned to love him. In the era of vinyl, Ray was already ahead of its time, mixing various musical rhythms in a kaleidoscope, the record labels against prejudice, bias that pervades the industry of video games also. Although the game Guitar Hero World Tour provides the option to compose music, the players are being censored by the owners after the themes of Zelda and Mario were remixed and downloaded by thousands of fans of the games. Controversy aside, today increasingly have the opportunity to make us artists. Just want to leave the tank and run the risk of life outside. Who knows with the same talent of a guy named Ray. .. *Journalist co-publisher of the Blog’ NewsGames Go home blog: http://blogdonewsgames.blogspot.com/ Listen to our podcast: http://seabhra.podomatic.com/ Subscribe to our podcast: http://seabhra.podomatic.com/rss2.xml Watch TV NewsGames: http://blogdonewsgames.blogspot.com/ Get in our chat: http://portifolioseabhra.blogspot.com/
  3. 3. Versão em português Pod 30 – Pegando carona no passado _____________________________________________________ Por Luciene Santos* No momento em que o mundo festeja a chegada do primeiro presidente negro à Casa Branca, sentimos a história clamando por um homem que esteve mais adiante no seu tempo que nos sugere agora Barack Obama. Estou falando de Ray Charles, ou simplesmente Ray! Um homem com dom criativo de criar enquanto produzia a sua epopéia viva em forma de arte para atrair multidões através da música. No tempo de Ray, criar era uma forma lúdica de viver, o que para muitos, era apenas um desativo de um cantor de cor e com deficiência visual. Mas, não era não! Era pura arte vindo de dentro de um cara que aprendeu a transformar a dor de uma vida mal-vivida em arte para ser ouvida em qualquer lugar do mundo. Apesar da infância difícil, os obstáculos não foram páreos diante do talento de um compositor de linhagem sofisticada e única. Ray cantou e encantava pela forma dedilhada de tocar sem igual num suave piano bar de calda bem apimentada. De seu legado criativo ficaram mais do que lições para as novas gerações. Ficaram lições que vão além da composição de meras notas músicais de sucesso. Ray cantou num tempo em que as gravadoras tentavam impor rédeas a seu talento rebelde e, sobretudo, fora de série. Nas suas veias, além do puro sangue negro, já corria a estética da remixagem, num tempo que a mistura proposta por Martin Luther King era apenas discurso para uma classe média que mal conseguia entender a febre de Elvis. O que agora virou moda, naquela época, era pura heresia. Mas, Ray soube encantar cantanto de tudo: jazz, soul, gospel, música country, Rhythm'n'Blues, o blues da eterna impie tu osidade de quem jamais ficou pronto para ser moldado por alguém. Nos anos dourados pela dor, Ray já vivia o auge da mistura como se isso fosse a verdade que deveria ter nos norteado sempre. O que no tempo de Ray era uma mistura criativa e genuína, hoje é uma linha tênue que separa a remixagem do plágio. Enquanto o plágio omite fontes da criação, a remixagem as celebra e as expõe, ressalta Henry Jenkins,
  4. 4. _____________________________________________________ no livro “Cultura da Convergência”. A remixagem procura construir um diálogo com o passado em vez de reivindicar para si a autoria de qualquer coisa. Na remixagem, a produção é coletiva, participativa e colaborativa, estabelecendo redes sociais onde é permitido que todas as obras possam conviver juntas, pacificamente. No meio do caminho, as leis do direito autoral inibem o crescimento cultural, restringindo o uso das obras aos seus proprietários. Se a cultura reside na humanidade, como pensar sob a lógica alquímica que encara a cultura nascida do nada, como se ela fosse apenas fruto da cabeça do artista? Na verdade, Einstein não criou a Teoria da Relatividade sem perceber os equívocos de seus antecessores. Como afirma Jenkins, as grandes obras literárias pegaram carona no passado, retirando dele os recursos que precisavam para promover a expansão cultural. Em todo processo criativo, o artista constrói a partir da cultura existente. Mas para que isso aconteça de forma contínua e sadia, todos nós precisamos aprender a respeitar a cultura, dando crédito aos autores do material que usamos. Do contrário, é a morte do artista e daqueles que aprenderam a amá-lo. Na era do vinil, Ray já estava à frente de seu tempo, misturando diversos ritmos num caleidoscópio musical, contra o preconceito das gravadoras, preconceito que invade também a indústria de videogames. Embora o jogo Guitar Hero World Tour forneça a opção de compor músicas, os jogadores estão sendo censurados pelos proprietários depois que os temas de Zelda e Mario foram remixados e baixados por milhares de fãs dos games. Polêmica à parte, hoje cada vez mais temos a oportunidade de nos tornar artistas. Basta querer sair do aquário e correr o risco da vida fora dele. Quem sabe com o mesmo talento de um cara chamado Ray... * Jornalista co-editora do Blog’ NewsGames Acesse home do blog: http://blogdonewsgames.blogspot.com/ Ouça nosso podcast: http://seabhra.podomatic.com/ Assine nosso podcast: http://seabhra.podomatic.com/rss2.xml Assista TV NewsGames: http://blogdonewsgamesnews.blogspot.com/ Entre em nosso chat: http://portifolioseabhra.blogspot.com/
