 TrouserPress.com :: Aphex Twin
Since emerging from his Cornwall bedroom to partake of the rave culture as a DJ (moving to London to launch himself as a musician), James has been the very model of the modern young egghead with his finger on the electronic pulse.
While the gentler end of his vocal — less sonic ablutions has earned him ambient comparisons to Brian Eno, there's a stronger visceral component to James' work: still in his early twenties, he has not yet lost his connection to the dancefloor.
Not counting outside production and remix work, his discography is an international morass of releases as the Aphex Twin, AFX, Polygon Window, Metapharstic, Caustic Window, Joyrex, Blue Calx, the Dice Man, etc. His American releases, however, have not been many.

 Style-defining author Ann Beattie comes in from the rain
Beattie fans responded to her work as they might to a new album by Joni Mitchell or James Taylor, sending her thank-you letters for "putting out there" what was happening to them.
Beattie, one of the most talked-about writers of the past two decades, helped define a style and an attitude now common in American fiction: spare in language, droll in humor, wary about love and skeptical of tradition.
If Beattie is no longer "the hot young thing," as she puts it, she remains a highly respected writer whose latest book is the mark of a highly respected writer: an anthology.

His need for change was part of the situation of his community, but whereas James Brown reflected this need with a music that was made totally of traditional elements, Coleman thought to present a new platform, an alternative.
People like Hawkins and Young understood Parker and loved him, but they could not relate to Coleman or Taylor that way.
They want to play the musical tradition of their people the best way they can, just as the Ethiopian musician attempts to play the music of Ethiopia the best way he can, or any other musician who plays a certain tradition.
