Die hier versammelten, in der Welt der Musik und ihrer Wissenschaft beheimateten Axel Beer, Reinhard Fehling, Dietrich Helms, Svenja Kamper, Thomas Phleps, Burkhard Sauerwald und Mechthild von Schoenebeck analysieren mit satirischem Blick und anarchischem Witz denk- und merkwürdige Phänomene aus Musik, Musikbetrieb und Musikwissenschaft. Sie werfen nie zuvor gestellte Fragen auf und finden unerhörte Antworten. Solchermaßen bei ihrem satirischen Potential gepackt, trägt Musikwissenschaft nicht nur zur Wiederbelebung der Gattung Wissenschaftssatire bei, sondern wird auch zu deren genuinem Bestandteil.

L’elfo reietto Kai Gracen è convinto di aver esaurito il suo karma positivo quando uno Stalker umano vince la partita di poker in cui Kai è stato messo in palio e lo prende con sé. In seguito alla violenta fusione tra la Terra e l’Underhill, la razza umana e quella elfica si ritrovano a vivere in un mondo caotico e infestato da mostri, e gli Stalker sono gli unici disposti ad accorrere quando all’orizzonte si profilano oscure minacce. Anche se difficile, quella dello Stalker è una vita che Kai ama: buone ricompense, qualche amico e, soprattutto, è priva di altri elfi che possano ricordargli il suo passato. E poi uccidere i mostri è facile, specialmente perché anche lui è un mostro. Quando un signore dei sidhe di nome Ryder arriva a San Diego, a Kai viene affidato un incarico per la nuova Corte dell’alba. Sulla carta si tratta di una semplice spedizione lungo la costa durante la stagione degli amori dei draghi, allo scopo di salvare una donna umana incinta in cerca di protezione. Facile, veloce e, cosa più importante, remunerativo. Tuttavia Kai si trova invischiato in una faida familiare all’ultimo sangue dalla quale non ha alcuna speranza di sottrarsi. Nessuno si è mai arricchito facendo lo Stalker. Anzi, pochi di loro arrivano alla vecchiaia, e sembra che Kai non farà eccezione.

The story of one man's journey to hell. Hell does have a name.Robben Island. This story, though fictional, is based on, and honors, the life - and death - of Stephen Biko. It is 1977, Johannesburg, South Africa. Some cruelly and sadistically wielded power meant to scourge, some broke under its weight, while some remained unbent, immovable under it, resolute of spirit, and ultimately, tragically, indomitable. This is the story of such a man.The story of Stephen Biko, though familiar to many, is a tragedy beyond what any man, any person should ever have to endure. This is not a story for the feint of heart or stomach. It is a story, not meant to shock, but to shine the unapologetic, unflattering light of truth on a situation that was, and is very real. Told through one man's journey, it will lay bare any and all realities of a world that for some was inescapable. The pain is real. The horrors are real. Ignoring them won't change a thing. Understanding it just might.
