Musician Kevin Shields on finding the soul of a song – The Creative Independent
I’ve worked with Primal Scream as well for years, and my role is just to elaborate on things as opposed to instigating them, or to just create as opposed to control.

volume. What’s the overall philosophy with playing this loud?
Yes and no. Volume on one level has a rippling effect, and starts to limit the boundaries of what’s happening. It starts to crunch, and then you just get an ever-changing form of shapes because of that. When I’m mixing music, I actually don’t mix it very loud. An important part of the process is not just depending on volume for recordings, and remembering that you can work at any volume. Volume can just be an experiment. In itself, volume creates a more personal interpretation of what’s happening.
There’s always been psychedelic elements of volume, and the conscience alters elements as you hear them. Doctors are discovering that’s biologically true. It’s also true from the perspective of perception because when something is that loud, you’re hearing different harmonic relationships and you’re also hearing your own ears start to distort the sound. Your hearing is your own personal version of what your relationship to sound is. What I find good about loud volume is that I actually perceive it more as an expression of freedom and individuality. The idea of having the so-called correct sonic representation has a lot of baggage attached to it. If something is loud, it forces you to just experience and accept it.
Volume is transportive in a biological way; you can watch it change people’s perception of what’s happening around them. It changes things. It becomes more mature than something that’s just there.

experimentation with an audience, which wouldn’t be entertainment. You don’t want bricks falling out of buildings or covering people in dust, that’s dangerous. It became a scientific experiment because we reached that point where we didn’t know what would happen if we continued further.

Land's End's Apostrophe
In the US, a board established in 1890 has the final say on the naming of geographical areas, and has only allowed five places to use the possessive apostrophe.

Martha's Vineyard, in Massachusetts, and Ike's Point in New Jersey, are two of those allowed to officially use the apostrophe.

In London, Earl's Court tube station has the apostrophe, but the now-closed exhibition centre do not. The area was once owned by the earls of Oxford.

But Barons Court does not have the mark, as the region's name is made up and was never owned by royalty.

Open up and let’s help propagate your good works – Oppong-Nkrumah to State CEOs - MyJoyOnline.com
Open up and let’s help propagate your good works – Oppong-Nkrumah to State CEOs October 13, 2018 at 02:00PM https://ift.tt/2Aab2w5

The Minister of Information Designate, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah has called on heads of State Institutions and Agencies to open up and let government communication machinery assist them in propagating their good works and progress in office.

Oppong Nkrumah made the appeal when he addressed CEOs of State Agencies at the Managment Development and Productivity Institute (MDPI) breakfast discussion which is aimed at discussing developmental Programs of the institute.

The Management Development and Productivity Institute (MDPI) was established on 26th October, 1967 under a joint Ghana Government, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and International Labour Organisation (ILO) Project. 

The minister designate believes the breakfast meeting will help bridge the communication gap between agencies and the government’s official communication team.

“Align your Communication Strategies with government’s information machinery so that we can coordinate and tell the citizens of this country the good work you are doing and the successes of the Akufo-Addo administration” he said.

Oppong-Nkrumah challenged them to work with the government crisis management protocol in the event they experience difficulties with stakeholders.

Many CEOs of state owned enterprises have overcome difficult circumstances inherited and posted stellar results but have unfortunately not been successful in churning out the gains made so far.

Among other objectives, the MDIP led meeting was aimed at exploring how to correct this trend and step up the proactive government information agenda.
