Chord

Friday, October 01, 2010

Fast fact of the day: "The word chord is a shortened version of accord meaning harmony. An octave is the interval between one pitch and another pitch that is either double or half its frequency. Pitch is the perceived tone of a note. Timbre is the difference in quality of a tone between different musical instruments"

  


Giacomo

Thursday, September 30, 2010

Fact of the Day: " Venetian adventurer Giacomo Casanova (1725-1798) was an author, a scientist, a gambler, a preacher, a soldier and a spy, but he remains especially (in)famous for his countless love affairs. He provided a detailed account of his scandalous life among the royal courts of Europe in a 12-volume autobiography. Not surprisingly, these memoirs have always been a great source of inspiration for cinema and TV, although with varying approaches and results: in "Casanova & Co." (1976), we saw Tony Curtis as the hero of a stereotypical sex farce; in the sumptuous "Fellini's Casanova" (1977), featuring Donald Sutherland, Casanova was crudely depicted as a bored and elderly philanderer; and in Lasse Hallstrom's romantic comedy of 2005, Heath Ledger played a man in search of the true meaning of love."
