La fábrica de canciones: Cómo se hacen los hits

by John Seabrook

Un ensayo fascinante y revelador que explica cómo se hacen los grandes éxitos que suenan en las radios de todo el mundo: La fábrica de canciones cambiará el modo en que escuchas música. En las dos últimas décadas ha nacido un nuevo tipo de canción. Los hits actuales están repletos de hooks, anzuelos musicales diseñados para engancharse a tu oreja cada siete segundos. Sus compositores han dedicado centenares de horas en inventarlos, en lograr que la melodía, el ritmo y la repetición se incrusten en el cerebro humano. Y los han pensado para que la experiencia de escucharlos funcione tanto en la radio o la tele como en centros comerciales o el gimnasio. En un viaje que lo lleva de Nueva York a Los Ángeles y de Estocolmo a Corea, John Seabrook nos cuenta la historia de una industria que de repente, tras un cataclismo, se vio forzada a transformarse; sus productos debían ser, más que nunca, innovadores, competitivos, ambiciosos y sexys. Explorando el terreno que comparten la ciencia y la creatividad, La fábrica de canciones es un libro que cambiará la manera en que escuchas música. Reseñas:«Una historia fascinante que lo abarca todo, desde el Brill Building y Phil Spector hasta Afrika Bambaataa o American Idol. Bajo todas estas tramas resuena, como una línea de bajo, el inexorable cabal de la tecnología.»The Boston Globe «Un libro tan adictivo como el tema que trata.»The Sunday Times «Un volumen vivo, entretenido e inspirador, que puede interesar a los locos del pop y también a la gente que no se imagina perdiendo la cabeza por el último hit de Rihanna.»The Wall Street Journal «Un relato absorbente sobre un fenómeno descomunal.»Walter Isaacson, autor de las aclamadas biografías Steve Jobs y Einstein «Un claro ejemplo de la tradición del New Yorker de contar historias con el máximo detalle sobre asuntos de la cultura popular de los que de otro modo no te enterarías.»Charles R. Cross, autor de Heavier Than Heaven, la biografía de Kurt Cobain «Seabrook no solamente examina el interior de una canción, sino también cómo una canción logra meterse en nuestro interior.»The Observer

Me crece la barba: Poemas para mayores y menores

by Gloria Fuertes

Una amplia antología de la poesía de Gloria Fuertes para adultos y para niños, en el año de la conmemoración del centenario de su nacimiento. «Mi poesía está aquí, como nació -sin ningún ropaje de retórica-, descalza, desnuda, rebelde, sin disfraz. Mi poesía recuerda y se parece a mí.»Gloria Fuertes Cuando el mundo retrocede, la rima asoma. Cuando la vida aprieta, los versos repuntan. Así podría definirse el legado de Gloria Fuertes, poeta necesaria del amor, la injusticia, el anhelo y la soledad. Al cumplirse el centenario de su nacimiento, en pleno auge de la poesía en las redes, reivindicamos a una mujer única. En esta antología libre se reúne una amplia muestra de su producción poética para adultos, tan perenne como injustamente olvidada, y para niños, que le valió en las últimas décadas el clamor popular pero quizá no el crítico. Dispuestos y asociados en una suerte de itinerario vital (que no cronológico) de la autora, los poemas de Me crece la barba dan viva fe de que no había dos Glorias, sino una sola y para todos los públicos. Para absolutamente todos. Reseñas:«Pocas veces unos poemas tan particularmente despojados de preocupaciones de estilo me han producido una más penetrante sensación de originalidad estilística.»J.M. Caballero Bonald «La gran Gloria Fuertes, la poeta de la difícil facilidad, que tuvo lo más raro de tener para un escritor: nítida voz propia.»Luis Antonio de Villena «Sus versos son desconsolados y atroces, saludables y humanos, mortales de necesidad y amargamente sobrios y juguetones como el diablillo de la guardia, al que esta mujer quiere peinar los cuernos.»Camilo José Cela «Se sale de sus libros con una sorda alegría en el cuerpo, una sensación de contenida felicidad, de sonrisa amable, no sé, de compañía.»Juan Bonilla

Más allá de la verdad (Hanne Wilhelmsen 7)

by Anne Holt

AVISO A LOS LECTORES:Cuando leas un libro de la serie de la inspectora Hanne Wilhelmsen no vas a poder parar. «¡Cuatro cadáveres, Hanne! La madre, el padre, el hijo mayor y otro del que no sabemos nada.» Poco antes de Navidad, un grotesco asesinato múltiple en uno de los barrios más acomodados de Oslo tiene a la opinión pública en vilo. ¿Ha sido una tragedia familiar? La inspectora Hanne Wilhelmsen no lo cree. Hay demasiados cabos sueltos. ¿Quién es la cuarta víctima? ¿Y qué hacía con los Stahlberg, la famosa estirpe de armadores? Las luchas de poder en el seno de la familia Stahlberg y el extraño comportamiento del nuevo presidente de la empresa naviera tampoco le facilitan precisamente la búsqueda del asesino a Hanne. Y aún más complicada es su relación con sus viejos colegas, sobre todo con su compañero de investigaciones, Billy T. Tanto más cuando ella insiste en que quizá la clave de todo esté en otro asesinato múltiple cometido tiempo atrás. Nada ha sido fácil para Hanne desde la muerte de su amada Cecile... La crítica ha dicho...«Una novela policíaca perfecta, de gran calibre.»Aftenposten (Noruega)
