General Interest: The Island Jazz Opera

Listen to 'The Island' by William Russo, words by Adrian Michell, with Cleo Lane and Dennis Quilley, played by the Russo orchestra, leader Leon Calvert. This is a jazz opera written for radio at around the time of the expulsion of the Diego Garcia islanders to make way for a US airbase as described in an article by John Pilger. It combines the resources of a chamber orchestra and a big band. It contrasts the superficialities of US popular culture with the simplicity of the islanders. It was recorded from the radio but the quality is sufficient to convey the beauty and power of the music and the tragedy of the story. I have put it here because it is unavailable elsewhere. I think the political message is still too strong to re-broadcast it

Note on viewing, printing and downloading music, movies and pix

Printing music off theWeb pages:
What follows is how it works on Internet Explorer using windows XP operating system. The same basic mechanism works with most browsers.
The idea of the song webpage is to show all of the music scores and the words together and to give the words as text so they can be used or printed out in different formats. If the score is too big or takes two pages there is often a link to another page.

The music on the website is mostly in the form of gif images which are essentially photo's (like jpg or mov which are other formats used in cameras and on the internet). The reason for using gif's is discussed at the end if anyone is interested.

You can print out the web page as you see it if you click on 'File' on the menu at the top of the web page and then choose 'Print': it will print out the whole web page. You can set the magnification, whether it is 'landscape' or 'portrait' view in the settings of the printer or go to Preview and you can change settings there including setting a custom magnification which you can adjust so you see all of what you want before you print it. More information on printing at the correct magnification is here.

However, if you only want to print the music and not the headings or the words, you can get the music only by clicking on the image of the printed sheet of music: just hover the mouse anywhere over the music score and left-click i.e. a normal click. A new page should open which should show just a page of music. You can look at this on 'File/Print preview' where you will probably need to change the magnification: as an example at 35% magnification one gets a full page of the score from 'Ode to privatisation' on an A4 sheet. Select 'Custom' in the top window on the right and enter '35' as the magnification. The default is 'shrink to fit' which doesn't seem to work to give a full page. This can then be printed out normally. If there are two pages of score you click on each score-image one after the other.

Some of the web-pages have links to special pages for single pages of music but these will have the headers and links at the bottom so cannot be as big as just the image.

Many web sites use pdf files which has the advantage that noone can change the settings but lacks the flexibility of being able to use an image of the music score in whatever way one likes including putting it in word docs or resizing it.

GIF's are an old image format (1987) mainly for text that was superceded by jpeg or jpg which came along for photo's. Gifs ran into patent problems in 1994 which meant people moved on to other formats but it stayed as a useful format on the web where it is used because it gives small files of black and white images.

To download files onto your computer you should right-click with you mouse as the mouse cursor hovers over the link and choose 'save link as' if you use the Firefox web browser or 'save target as' if you use Internet Explorer.
