New England dance : squares, quadrilles, step dances by John Melville Bishop( Visual )

4 editions published between 1990 and 1995 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a spirited visit to some of the old dances in New England and with the callers and musicians who make them happen. It features Phil Johnson calling squares in Lebanon, Maine with the Maple Sugar Band; John Campbell and Norman MacEachern at the Canadian American Victory Club in Watertown, MA; William Chaisson and Joe Cormier at the French American Victory Club in Waltham, MA; and Arcade Richard and Victor Albert in Leominster, MA, doing quadrilles; and Charlie Mitchell at the Blue Goose in Northport, Maine, doing contra dances
New England fiddles : playing down the devil by John Bishop( Visual )

6 editions published between 1983 and 1995 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alan Lomax said this film "takes us past the solemn facade of clambakes and town meetings into a lively world of all night dances and local musicians who could have helped Daniel Webster play down the devil." The film includes performances of seven of the finest traditional musicians in the Northeast including Joe Cormier, Jerry Robichaud, Ben Guillemette, Paddy Cronin, Wilfred Guillette, Harold Luce, and Ron West playing in their lively and distinct Acadian, Irish, Cape Breton, and Quebecois styles

New England fiddles: Features seven New England traditional fiddlers as they play in their homes and at dances and contests, passing on their styles to younger fiddlers, and commenting on their music. At the end of the main film, there is 20 minutes appendix of 11 additional fiddle tunes. Bonus: Simon St. Pierre performs during a visit to Washington, D.C. to accept a National Heritage Award. New England dances: Documentary on the revival of traditional music and dance in the New England states of Maine and Massachusetts, told in the words of local callers, musicians, and dancers. The focus is on recreational rather than theatrical dancing, although a sequence filmed at the 49th National Folk Festival in Lowell, Mass., depicts performances by Irish step dancers Dierdre Goulding and Liam Harney, and Harvey Beaton, a Cape Breton step dancer. The interviewees discuss calling, music, and the various types of dances (including square dancing, step dancing, and quadrilles), as well as local traditions, participants, and their observations of dance and music in their communities

Robust Stream Reasoning Under Uncertainty by Daniel De Leng( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Vast amounts of data are continually being generated by a wide variety of data producers. This data ranges from quantitative sensor observations produced by robot systems to complex unstructured human-generated texts on social media. With data being so abundant, the ability to make sense of these streams of data through reasoning is of great importance. Reasoning over streams is particularly relevant for autonomous robotic systems that operate in physical environments. They commonly observe this environment through incremental observations, gradually refining information about their surroundings. This makes robust management of streaming data and their refinement an important problem. Many contemporary approaches to stream reasoning focus on the issue of querying data streams in order to generate higher-level information by relying on well-known database approaches. Other approaches apply logic-based reasoning techniques, which rarely consider the provenance of their symbolic interpretations. In this work, we integrate techniques for logic-based stream reasoning with the adaptive generation of the state streams needed to do the reasoning over. This combination deals with both the challenge of reasoning over uncertain streaming data and the problem of robustly managing streaming data and their refinement. The main contributions of this work are (1) a logic-based temporal reasoning technique based on path checking under uncertainty that combines temporal reasoning with qualitative spatial reasoning; (2) an adaptive reconfiguration procedure for generating and maintaining a data stream required to perform spatio-temporal stream reasoning over; and (3) integration of these two techniques into a stream reasoning framework. The proposed spatio-temporal stream reasoning technique is able to reason with intertemporal spatial relations by leveraging landmarks. Adaptive state stream generation allows the framework to adapt to situations in which the set of available streaming resources changes. Management of streaming resources is formalised in the DyKnow model, which introduces a configuration life-cycle to adaptively generate state streams. The DyKnow-ROS stream reasoning framework is a concrete realisation of this model that extends the Robot Operating System (ROS). DyKnow-ROS has been deployed on the SoftBank Robotics NAO platform to demonstrate the system's capabilities in a case study on run-time adaptive reconfiguration. The results show that the proposed system - by combining reasoning over and reasoning about streams - can robustly perform stream reasoning, even when the availability of streaming resources changes

New England Fiddles New England Dances / John Bishop, réal. ; Nicholas Hawes, cons. scient by John Bishop( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Since colonial times, the fiddle has enjoyed a primary place in American traditional music. Playing the fiddle is both intensely personal and an expression of cultural aesthetics. The fiddler provides the spirit and music for dances which are important elements for community cohesion. New England styles and tunes originate in French and Anglo-Celtic traditions which have been transformed into the music we hear at fiddle contests and contra dances in the Northeast today. New England Fiddles presents seven of the finest traditional musicians in the Northeast
