, Michael O’Riordan? Although the book is divided into two parts, the parts are connected as the Stasi was omnipresent, be it in assessing PIRA activities and ­getting confidential documents on the one hand, or reviewing a book based on Frank Ryan’s life, analysing media duels between East and West Germany concerning Northern Ireland and reporting words of Irish businessmen visiting the Leipzig Fair on the other hand. In Part II, attention is focused solely on intelligence activities: reading and listening about Ireland and Northern Ireland; spying on Ireland; recording

Far less is known, as Fissell also points out, about how far men ‘cared’ in the early modern household.2 This chapter will explore the issue of domestic care for the sick, with particular emphasis on gender healing roles within the family unit. It will also highlight the important medical relationships between parents and children, such as that of father and daughter, and foreground the important role of men in collating and recording household medical knowledge. Further, as evidence in Welsh sources demonstrates, care for the sick, and especially for children

In some ways the construction of performance in Final Fantasy was not dissimilar to the reconstruction of Bacon’s performance in Hollow Man: both Hollow Man’s substituted performance via digital mapping and the extensive use of ‘motion capture’ 6 in the creation of characters in Final Fantasy relied initially on the recording of human performance.

Second is the use of shot sequences and excessively detailed montage sequences, for example the opening of Touch of Evil and its close that create a gap between sounds and images (they have different references, different rhythms and seem to inhabit different spaces as in the scene of the recording by Vargas of Quinlan’s dialogue with Menzies in Touch of

Magic flight stories The practice of recording stories related orally started with the brothers Grimm. They were also among the first to annotate their texts, pointing to parallels and predecessors of a particular tale. Fairy tale collecting and research owes its very existence to them. In assessing their texts, however, it makes a difference what kind of authenticity is

. The interplay between audiences and performers in comedy is demonstrated by the shooting style of many television sitcoms, which garner a real audience to watch the recording, re-creating the theatrical experience within a television studio. This audience is seen as so vital to the comic performance that its oral responses are recorded, resulting in the laugh track which accompanies many sitcoms. It is significant that many

recording in direct sound in La terra trema is an exemplary orchestration of the aural and the visual, movement and speech, sounds and gestures, settings and characters, all perfectly pre-planned and calibrated almost as if they were ‘already edited’. And the actor ‘taken from the street’, but taught by Visconti, played a fundamental role in Visconti’s continuous relation between presence and reciting, naturalism and stylization

At least in the English-language traditions of ethnography, ‘participant-observation’ involves learning the language of the subjects, so that it is possible not only to speak with them directly, but also to listen to third-party conversations. It involves not just the recording of what is laid out in official documents and formally codified sets of rules – if there are any – nor merely attending to what the subjects say, but also paying close attention to non-linguistic codes, to the ‘things that go without saying’, that is, to the non

? If we paid attention to what now-famous musicians of the punk movement like The Clash have actually said about the origins of their teenage musical ambitions, then the roll call of the greatest skilled musicians in the world that they were inspired by, learned from and desired to become would be endless. Recently a host of managers, musicians and recording engineers, THE CLASH AND MUSICAL ARTISTRY 63 including Bernie Rhodes, Tony James, Terry Chimes, Steve Levine and Mick Jones, yet again, across BBC airwaves, have had to denounce the ‘punk musicians couldn
