  Reich, Wilhelm - HighBeam Encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
REICH, WILHELM [Reich, Wilhelm], 1897-1957, Austrian psychiatrist and biophysicist.
According to Reich's theories the universe is permeated by a primal, mass-free phenomenon that he called orgone energy; in the human organism the lack of repeated total discharge of this energy through natural sexual release is considered the genesis not only of all individual neurosis but also of irrational social movements and collective neurotic disorder.
Reich invented the orgone box, a device that he claimed would restore energy but that was declared a fraud by the Food and Drug Administration.

 The Wilhelm Reich Museum - Biography
Reich confirmed the existence of this energy in the human body, verified its presence in the atmosphere, developed instrumentation to observe and collect it, and harnessed it for a variety of purposes from cancer treatment to motor power to weather experimentation.
Reich’s clinical work also led him to develop new therapeutic techniques to eliminate the patient’s character and muscular armor and allow for the flow and discharge of this bio-energy to achieve what he called “orgastic potency,” the capacity for total discharge of sexual excitation in the genital embrace.
From this, Reich concluded that pleasure is the movement of biological energy toward the periphery of the organism, while anxiety is the movement of this energy toward the center.

Reich, by contrast, has explored the different ways in which a rhythmic figure can move out of phase with itself, while Glass has used rhythmic figures which increase or decrease in length as the piece progresses.
Reich eventually abandoned this device because of its precision, which he felt was stiff and unmusical.
Reich feels that it is important to distinguish his music from some currently popular modal forms of music, such as Indian classical and drug-oriented rock and roll.

 Wilhelm Reich's Contact With Space
On January 28, 1954, Wilhelm Reich "happened accidentally to observe two bright yellow-orange lights moving in front of a mountain range toward a lake." The encounter was the opening salvo of a "war" with UFOs that would occupy the final phases of Reich's troubled medical and scientific career.
Reich found an inexhaustible range of uses for his discovery, touting orgone as everything from the secret of antigravity to a tool for weather control, especially rainmaking.
As Reich was scanning the sky with a "cloudbuster," a device he had designed to draw orgone out of the sky in order to induce rain, he saw a star "fade out" in the presence of three other witnesses.

 Wilhelm Reich - Biography
Wilhelm Reich was born in the easternmost part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the German Ukraine on March 24, 1897.
Reich called this capacity for gratification "orgastic potency." Previously, sexual problems were considered only symptoms and not the core of the neurosis, and erective potency was believed to be evidence of adequate sexual functioning.
Thus Reich made three major discoveries which opened a vast opportunity for understanding human functioning and whose value cannot be overestimated: the reality of the libido (it is a flow of energy), the function of the orgasm (it regulates the flow of energy), and the muscular armor (it prevents regulation of energy).

 Reich - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
To use the terms "First Reich" and "Second Reich", as some commentators did in the post-war years, is generally frowned upon as accepting Nazi historiography.
Reich has thus not been used in official terminology since 1945, though it is still found in the name of the Reichstag building, which since 1999 has housed the German federal parliament, the Bundestag.
Reich has an interesting etymology: it comes from a Germanic word for "king", which was borrowed from Celtic.

 Public Diplomacy and Covert Propaganda: The Otto Reich File
Reich served in the Reagan administration as assistant administrator of the Agency for International Development (AID) from 1981 to 1983, then as the first director of the State Department’s Office of Public Diplomacy for Latin America and the Caribbean (S/LPD) from 1983 to 1986, and finally as ambassador to Venezuela.
Reich as saying “he was generally unfamiliar with the details related to the office’s contracting procedures.
Reich testified that he “never saw it as a tasking memorandum” and that he was unaware that his contractors were involved in lobbying efforts or ads targeted on specific members of Congress.

 orgone energy, Wilhelm Reich
Reich claimed that orgone energy is omnipresent and accounts for such things as the color of the sky, gravity, galaxies, the failure of most political revolutions, and a good orgasm.
Reich believed that orgone energy is "demonstrable visually, thermically, electroscopically and by means of Geiger-Mueller counters."* However, only true believers in orgone energy (i.e., orgonomists practicing the science of orgonomy) have been able to find success with the demonstrations.

 Malcolm Ball - Steve Reich
Steve Reich was born in New York in 1936 and spent much of his early childhood travelling from New York to California, the result of parental separation but an experience that later in life was to manifest in some degree in his composition Different Trains.
It was also in 1970 when Reich journeyed to Ghana to study African drumming with the Ewe tribe and on his return to the U.S. composed Drumming from the autumn of 70 to the autumn of 71.
Currently, Steve Reich and Beryl Karot are at work on their next collaboration Three Tales which deals with three key subjects which have had or could have extreme consequences on life in the 20th and 21st centuries.

 ZNet | Latin America | Latin America's Dilemma: Otto Reich's Propaganda is Reminiscent of the Third Reich
Reich is a right-wing Cuban-American obsessed with overthrowing Fidel Castro's regime and is also a big political supporter of President Bush's brother and Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who needs strong support from Cubans in Florida in his re-election bid this year.
Reich, along with fellow Reagan administration cohorts, Elliott Abrams and John Negroponte, were discredited for their covert activities and false assertions when the United States intervened in Central America in the 1980's and '90s, but have been re-instated in prominent positions in the second Bush administration.
Reich's operation violated "a restriction on the State Department's annual appropriations prohibiting the use of federal funds for publicity or propaganda purposes not authorized by Congress." Reich used the covert propaganda to demonize the democratically elected Sandinista government of Nicaragua and establish the Contras as fearless freedom fighters.

 James Wierzbicki / Steve Reich
Reich was born in New York City in 1936, and his musical training followed the norm for many young composers of that generation.
Reich produced a lot of music in those days, most of it of the sparse, angular and intellectually fashionable sort now referred to as ''post-Webernian serialism.'' In 1963 he simultaneously formed his own percussion group and shook off the restrictions of ''formulaic'' academic music.
To judge from the score, Reich's new ''Three Movements for Orchestra'' seems closer in design and overall mood to his music from the late 1970s than it is to either ''Tehillim'' or ''The Desert Music.'' But clearly this is a piece in which the purposeful treatment of harmony plays a dominant role.

 Classical Net - Basic Repertoire List - Reich
Reich’s later music is characterized by a considerably faster harmonic rate of change, and by a more diverse (though still strictly diatonic) harmonic language.
Reich has also recently returned to the voice, as in "Tehillim" (1981), a setting of Psalm texts in Hebrew, "Different Trains" (1988) for string quartet and tape, and in Reich’s hugely successful venture into the theater, "The Cave" (1990-3).
His strict, tonal melodic style has brought Reich much critical acclaim, even in a general public that often is distrustful of "new music." As such, Reich has, in many ways, led a charge toward establishing the accessible and almost "anti-academic" diatribe of the newest developments in contemporary music.

 History of Orgonomy & Wilhelm Reich's Discoveries
Reich developed therapeutic methods to help people give up their emotional armor; but he also approached the problem from the social and political side of things, working to pass laws against child abuse, to give women equal rights and pay, and to make divorce and contraceptives more freely available.
Reich's later microscopical experiments with ameba would produce other breakthroughs in the biological sciences, in the discovery of the specific process of bionous decay of tissues, which lay at the basis of cancer cell formation.
Reich's findings on cancer are directly observable, and not just some speculative theory -- his observations on pre-cancerous cellular processes significantly predated those of George Papanicolaou (of "Pap-test" fame), and Reich believed his scientific priority had in fact been stolen.

In early May, Reich announced that in June he would be leaving his post as the White House special envoy to the Americas and joining Team Bush's reelection campaign.
Reich, along with Elliot Abrams and John Negroponte, was one of a trio of Iran/Contra alumni to re-emerge in the Bush Administration as Latin America policy operatives, something reporter Bart Jones pointed out in a January 2003 piece in the National Catholic Reporter.
At the OPD, Reich "manufactured op-eds that were passed off to the U.S. media under the name of Nicaraguan rebel leaders as he berated editors and journalists he deemed too soft on the Sandinistas or too tough on the Reagan administration," wrote Alec Dubro of Foreign Policy in Focus.

 Wilhelm Reich - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Reich developed a theory that the ability to feel sexual love depended on a physical ability to make love with what he called "orgastic potency." He attempted to "measure" the male orgasm, noting that four distinct phases occurred physiologically: first, the psychosexual build-up or tension; second.
Reich died in his sleep of heart failure on November 3, 1957 in the federal penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, shortly before he was due to apply for parole.

Steve Reich began his career as a percussionist, and his music is marked by an almost overriding interest in rhythm.
Reich's first works were almost exclusively for percussion, and in them he used both the rhythmic energy and repetitive patterns he found in African music and the concept of gradual change that marks Balinese music.
Reich utilizes this process of gradual change with live performers, as well as by means of tape manipulations (such as making two tape loops of the same sound, but of slightly different lengths).

 Disquiet: interviews: Steve Reich (1999)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Reich: First of all, a lot of things happened before I was even aware of it, so consequently, no one sent me a copy of "Little Fluffy Clouds" and said, "Is this alright with you." Because at the time they were relatively unknown, we didn't take any legal steps either, when we had that option.
Reich: The basic idea behind "Different Trains" is that the music would come out of the voice melody of the speakers, and there isn't any fiddling [with those voices], nor in "The Cave," any fiddling with the actual pitch or speed of the speakers.
Reich: Sometimes yes, but basically there are languages in the world, that we don't speak, you and I, but in Africa for instance, where — they're called tonal languages — if you don't have the melody right, then you don't have the meaning right.

By covertly disseminating intelligence leaks to journalists, Reich and the OPD sought to trump up a Nicaraguan "threat," and to sanctify the U.S.-backed Contra guerrillas fighting Nicaragua's government as "freedom fighters."
