The 'Farewell Mix' (by NIN?) of I Can't Give Everything

I hadn't known about that mix, thanks!

"Heat", off of "The Next Day", was a clear indicator of where he was going, and it seems like he was planning on more of the same if the "No Plan" material is any indication.

Yeah, I can see what you mean by that. 'Heat' is undoubtedly one of my favourite tracks from that record, too. There really isn't a wrong answer to this poll, IMO, and I've really no idea what's going to top the poll, or even at this stage what I'm going to vote for - each of these tracks is a standout in its own way.

"Heat' is just a bit too much in thrall to Electrician-era Scott Walker, whereas Blackstar kind of sounds like its own thing. Girl Loves Me is the only track here that I think is just OK rather than fantastic. I voted for the title track - it's right up there with Bowie's two other epics, Sweet Thing and Station to Station.

What I've never understand is what kept him from doing this earlier in his career, or at least sometime in the 90s. I mean, I guess "Outside" is quite daring in context, but he had even covered Scott's "Nite Flights", why didn't he take a cue and just run with it?

the dissonance is harmonic. the part where he sings "i can't give everything" uses a tritone before resolving to the tonic chord on "away"

Jeff the grown man (voodoo chili), Thursday, 13 June 2019 15:37 (two months ago) link

To quote the first music theory video that popped up when I googled tritone.

"We no longer hear the tritone as 'dissonant' as our 14th century counterparts did."

That *is* a tritone in the chorus. And tritones are regarded as dissonant to this day. It is a dissonant interval. But you might not hear it as such in this song.

Personally I don't get the love for "I Can't Give...".

Duke, Thursday, 13 June 2019 20:03 (two months ago) link

I've written at this point thousands of words on behalf of Bowie starting with my college paper review of 1. Outside in which I called it the album of the year: its obscurity a

nd density were its attractions. I've been suckered by fake comebacks too -- until I learned to love, like, or dismiss albums on their own terms. I thought The Next Day a redundancy at the time and still think so; a couple songs are outright embarrassing. So what, right? Bowie is often embarrassing -- he takes risks, and an artist isn't taking risks if he doesn't court embarrassment. I thought his silence after the solid Reality among his canniest PR moves in a career full of them; why sully it?

Blackstar, however, astounded me. As with many syncretic talents, Bowie needed the right band: he couldn't have written this album in 1995 because he hadn't met these people in 1995. To his credit, though, he'd become such a savvy studio musician himself that his demos aren't much different from what winds up on the album, as every player has averred. God.

There are some decent songs on The Next Day but it's let down by some very unadventurous rock arrangements. Where Are We Now is beautiful, but imagine if he'd recorded it during the Blackstar sessions, it would have been so much better.

yeah this is the key for me - him and that band both propel each other to some astonishing places. There's such an incredible spark between him and that group, and you hear it right from the first notes, it animates the material in a really unique way. The songs are wonderful, but it's not hard for me to imagine a version of this record that doesnt work at all if he had just laid it down with some crack session players.

Tritones and m2's are definitely regarded as dissonances in the present day ftr, at least in the context of tonal music. The blues would sound less blue if we could not hear tritones as more dissonant than major thirds.

Voted "Girl Loves Me". It's just what grabbed me today.

I have to work with Blackstar. It's a challenging 2016 record; I don't think the comparisons to "Station to Station" are 'superficial'. I do hear echoes of his self-destructive cocaine fascism. In early press for the record Bowie evoked the Vorticists; he would surely have known they went fascist. The European Canon is certainly a huge part of "Blackstar".

I don't know how to feel about this. Fascism is innately a music of death, so it makes sense that this part of him, which he persuasively debunked time and again ("Quicksand" also a sharp rebuke to his fascist aspect), would resurface once again. And his fascism was always personal, always occult. Blackstar isn't a prophetic album.

Grove Online article by William Drabkin is p interesting, actually. The history of the interval and how it has been regarded is pretty complex, although tonal instability seems to be its basic characteristic.

...Since the beginnings of polyphony in the early Middle Ages theorists and composers have changed their attitudes to the tritone and its use more than to any other interval.

In the medieval system of church modes the tritone was most conspicuous as the interval between the final and the fourth degree of the modes on F, the Lydian and Hypolydian. Conjunct progressions that outline the ascending tritone or the descending diminished 5th F–B are not uncommon in Gregorian chant (although tritone leaps are rare; see Gellnick), and the introduction of B♭ in plainsong notation [done to avoid the tritone] seems to have been a relatively late development. The first known use of the word ‘tritonus’ occurs in the 9th- or 10th-century organum treatise Musica enchiriadis, though it was not explicitly prohibited until the development of Guido of Arezzo's hexachordal system, which made B♭ a diatonic note, namely as the fourth degree of the hexachord on F. From then until the end of the Renaissance the tritone, nicknamed the ‘diabolus in musica’, was regarded as an unstable interval and rejected as a consonance by most theorists. In the 13th century it was classified as a discordantia perfecta, along with the minor 2nd and major 7th; and by the 15th century the Lydian mode was understood as having a flattened fourth degree (Tinctoris: Liber de natura … tonorum, 1476), that is, as being a transposed Ionian mode, as Glarean defined it in the Dodecachordon (1547).

Since the 16th century the instability of the tritone has led to developments in two directions. On the one hand, its presence in the dominant 7th chord in four-part counterpoint has made the authentic perfect cadence an even stronger affirmation of the tonality, providing an approach by semitone not only to the tonic degree but also to the 3rd (ex.1a). However, because it divides the octave into two equal parts, the tritone has also assumed the role of the tonally most ambiguous interval, as opposed to the 5th, which divides the octave into unequal parts and is (apart from the octave itself) the interval most fundamental to tonality: in particular, the tritone has come to be recognized as a basic substructure within the diminished 7th chord and the whole-tone scale (ex.1b–c). In the chorale Es ist genug (ex.2) Bach used the tritone embedded in the major scale to create an ambiguity in the relationship between tonic and dominant. Both Mozart and Beethoven used tritones thematically or motivically to divide the octave into equal parts (exx.3–4). In 19th-century Romantic opera the tritone regularly portrays that which is ominous or evil; an early instance is in the dungeon scene in Act 2 of Fidelio, for which the timpani are tuned A–E♭. Its importance in dramatic music led to further developments in the extension and suspension of tonality, particularly in Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde and Parsifal (see also ‘Tristan’ chord), the late piano works of Liszt and the music of Debussy (ex.5). In 12-note music, the fact that the inversion of the tritone at the interval of an octave yields another tritone (no other interval except the octave has this property) has proved fundamentally significant, both in theory and in practice.

As with many syncretic talents, Bowie needed the right band:

I was reading this interview with Matt Chamberlain the other day and he talked about the Heathen sessions, with just him and Bowie and Visconti, and how much Bowie fed off of what he was coming up with:

David is kind of like Tori, in that nothing is too precious and everything is permissible. You can try anything because if you don’t—and you just do what he wants—then what’s the point in having me there? He just let me go, and it was kind of mind-blowing. He would write a song and say, “Alright, what do you think”? And I would go, “Well, let me make a loop.” Then he and Tony would disappear and I would sit in the studio by myself. At the time, I was using a cheap Boomerang pedal to make loops and the whole time I was thinking, They’re letting me create the vibe of this song? This is a David Bowie record. Aaahhh!

change display name (Jordan), Friday, 14 June 2019 14:29 (two months ago) link

It just occurred to me that people might be working with a general usage of "dissonant" as meaning something like "harsh/unpleasant/not belonging together". When discussing harmony, it refers to unstable harmonies that seek resolution and are an important element in tonal music. I don't believe that anyone hears #iv m7b5 as stable and resolved.
