Durante los últimos quince años he estudiado los procesos humanos creativos, en particular tal como se manifiestan en las artes. He realizado este estudio principalmente desde la perspectiva de la psicología cognitiva, esa ambiciosa disciplina que busca descubrir las leyes básicas del pensamiento humano.

Mis puntos de vista se han ido modificando, por supuesto, a través de los años (al igual que los auditorios a los que me he dirigido), pero mi motivación ha seguido siendo, en esencia, la misma: conocer en profundidad los procesos y productos creativos, ya sea que provengan de una dibujante autista (como la sorprendente niña inglesa, Nadia), de un escritor que sufrió de lesión cerebral (como Baudelaire), o de un compositor en la cúspide de su capacidad (como Mozart). En esta recopilación de ensayos presentaré mis ideas actuales sobre el tema, así como muchos de los pasos que condujeron a ellas.

Though they were the most highly touted new wave band to emerge from the CBGB's scene in New York, it was not clear at first whether Talking Heads' Lower East Side art rock approach could make the subway ride to the midtown pop mainstream successfully. The leadoff track of the debut album, Talking Heads: 77, "Uh-Oh, Love Comes to Town," was a pop song that emphasized the group's unlikely roots in late-'60s bubblegum, Motown, and Caribbean music. But the "Uh-Oh" gave away the group's game early, with its nervous, disconnected lyrics and David Byrne's strained voice. All pretenses of normality were abandoned by the second track, as Talking Heads finally started to sound on record the way they did downtown: the staggered rhythms and sudden tempo changes, the odd guitar tunings and rhythmic, single-note patterns, the non-rhyming, non-linear lyrics that came across like odd remarks overheard from a psychiatrist's couch, and that voice, singing above its normal range, its falsetto leaps and strangled cries resembling a madman trying desperately to sound normal. Talking Heads threw you off balance, but grabbed your attention with a sound that seemed alternately threatening and goofy. The music was undeniably catchy, even at its most ominous, especially on "Psycho Killer," Byrne's supreme statement of demented purpose. Amazingly, that song made the singles chart for a few weeks, evidence of the group's quirky appeal, but the album was not a big hit, and it remained unclear whether Talking Heads spoke only the secret language of the urban arts types or whether that could be translated into the more common tongue of hip pop culture. In any case, they had succeeded as artists, using existing elements in an unusual combination to create something new that still managed to be oddly familiar. And that made Talking Heads: 77 a landmark album.

Cardboard sleeve reissue from Bad Company featuring the 2010 24-bit digital remastering. Part of a six-album Bad Company reissue series featuring albums "Bad Company", "Straight Shooter", "Run With The Pack", "Burnin' Sky", "Desolation Angels", and "Rough Diamonds".

Formed in 1973, the British hard rock outfit Bad Company was a supergroup comprised of ex-King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell, former Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs, and singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke, both previous members of Free. Powered by Rodgers' muscular vocals and Ralphs' blues-based guitar work, Bad Company was the first group signed to Led Zeppelin's Swan Song vanity label. Bad Company's eponymous 1974 debut was an international hit, topping the U.S. album charts and scoring with the number one single "Can't Get Enough of Your Love." 

Straight Shooter, issued the following year, was another major success, notching the hit "Feel Like Makin' Love," while 1976's Run With the Pack was Bad Company's third consecutive million-selling record. After 1977's Burnin' Sky, Bad Company recorded 1979's Desolation Angels, which embellished the group's sound with synthesizers and strings; a three-year hiatus followed before the release of Rough Diamonds, the group's final LP in its original incarnation.
