The kingdom of zydeco( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The kingdom of zydeco is both a cunning little comedy of manners and a sweet-tempered celebration of American roots music. It chronicles the sea change that took place in the black Creole music scene of southwest Louisiana with the deaths of both Clifton Chenier and Rockin' Dopsie, king and crown prince, respectively, of zydeco music. Who, then, assumes titular leadership of this righteously rocking, washboard-driven sub-genre of rhythm-and-blues? Beau Jocque and Boozoo Chavis kick out the jams in thrilling performances filmed with blissful authority by Mugge, a specialist in roots music documentaries ... It's Chenier's legacy - and Mugge's observational skills - that triumph in the end"--Container

From representational to parametric and algorithmic interactions: A panorama of Digital Architectural Design teaching in Latin America( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study focuses on the context of graphic representation technologies and digital design on Architectural teaching in Latin America.

The results suggest a context of coexistence of representational interaction and parametric interaction, as well as a transition from one to another and the emergence of the first experiments in algorithmic interaction. As this mapping shows an ongoing movement toward Digital Architectural Design in Latin America in the last decade, and points out its dynamics in space in time, it could contribute to strengthen a crowdthinking network on this issue in the region and with other continents
