Celtic metal

Celtic metal is a subgenre of folk metal that developed in the 1990s in Ireland. As the name suggests, the genre is a fusion of Celtic rock; the early pioneers of the genre were the Irish bands Cruachan and Waylander. The genre has since expanded beyond Irish shores and is known to be performed today by bands from numerous other countries; the origins of Celtic metal can be traced to the earliest known exponent of folk metal, the English band Skyclad. Their "ambitious" and "groundbreaking" debut album The Wayward Sons of Mother Earth was released in 1990 with the song "The Widdershins Jig" acclaimed as "particularly significant" and "a certain first in the realms of Metal"; this debut album made an impact on a young Keith Fay who had formed a Tolkien-inspired black metal band by the name of Minas Tirith. Inspired by the music of Skyclad and Horslips, Keith Fay set out to combine black metal with the folk music of Ireland, he formed the Irish band Cruachan in 1992 with a demo recording released in 1993.

Like Waylander, Keith Fay credits the Irish rock band Horslips as a "huge influence on Cruachan," further noting that "what they were doing in the 70s is the equivalent of what we do now." Cruachan's debut album Tuatha Na Gael was released in 1995 and the band has since been acclaimed as having "gone the greatest lengths of anyone in their attempts to expand" the genre of folk metal. With a specific focus on Celtic music and the use of Celtic mythology in their lyrics, Cruachan's style of folk metal is known today as Celtic metal. Parallel to Cruachan, the black metal act Primordial released a demo recording in 1993 and "found themselves heralded as frontrunners in the burgeoning second-wave black metal movement." Irish music plays "a big role" in Primordial but in "a dark and subtle way" through the chords and timings. The year 1993 saw the formation of Waylander. With vocalist Ciaran O'Hagan fronting the group, they released a demo recording in 1995. A debut album Reawakening Pride Once Lost was unveiled in 1998.

O'Hagan notes that it was a coincidence that "Primordial and Waylander sprang up within little more than a year of each other." Since a few other bands from Ireland have emerged to perform Celtic metal including Geasa and Mael Mórdha. Since the turn of the millennium, the genre has expanded and many bands beyond the shores of Ireland can be found today performing Celtic metal; this includes Eluveitie from Switzerland, Ithilien from Belgium, Mägo de Oz from Spain, Suidakra from Germany, Skiltron from Argentina. Despite the Irish origins of the genre, Celtic metal is not known to be popular in Ireland. Ciaran O'Hagan of Waylander notes that while "Primordial are Ireland’s biggest Metal band in terms of sales and international profile" the band would be "lucky to sell much more than 500 copies of their albums in their own country or pull more than 300 punters to a gig." Bands in the genre have experienced a more enthusiastic reception elsewhere with Mägo de Oz notably experiencing strong chart success in Latin America and their native Spain.

Similar to its parent genre of folk metal, the music of Celtic metal is a diverse collection with bands pursuing different subgenres of heavy metal music. While bands such as Suidakra ply their trade with the more extreme subgenres of black or death metal, other groups like Mägo de Oz and Skiltron prefer a more traditional or power metal sound; the one common element is a shared interest in incorporating Celtic music into heavy metal. Many bands in the genre enhance their sound with the use of a folk instrument. Bagpipes are used by bands such as Ithilien; the fiddle is used by such bands as Mägo de Ithilien and Eluveitie. The tin whistle and flute, can be found in such bands as Cruachan, Ithilien and Eluveitie. While the Irish bands of the genre make use of native instruments such as the uilleann pipe and bodhrán.

Eugène Fichel

Benjamin Eugène Fichel son of Moise Mayer Fichel and Lili Abigail Sasias, was a French painter. He entered the École des Beaux-Arts in 1844 and became a pupil of Hippolyte Delaroche, but painted much more under the inspiration of Jean-Louis-Ernest Meissonier, whose exquisite handling is suggested in numerous small canvases of his which by their refined technique and vivid action recall the characteristic intensity and directness of composition which belong to the painter of "Friedland." His students included Jeanne Fichel who he married. Along with great care in finish, Fichel's canvases exhibit an archæological exactness, a kind of delicate humor, his first work of importance was exhibited in 1850, "Harvey Demonstrating the Circulation of the Blood to Charles I." He was a chevalier of the Legion of Honor and, in 1857, received a medal for his painting in the Salon of that year. He exhibited a canvas every year at the Salon, up to a few years before his death; the principal works of Fichel are genre paintings, include "The End of Dinner," "A Festival in the Year 1776," "The Capture of a Spy," "The Wandering Singers," "A Morning Call," "The Arrival at the Inn," "The Council of War" and others.

He did history paintings which have the freedom and imagination of pure genre: "The Night of August 24, 1572" and "Founding of the French Academy." Many of his pictures are in galleries all over the world. Two of his paintings, "A Violin Player," executed in 1871, "Awaiting an Audience," painted in 1881, are in the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art Rines, George Edwin, ed.. "Fichel, Eugène".

Rights Expression Language

A Rights Expression Language or REL is a machine-processable language used to express intellectual property rights and other terms and conditions for use over content. RELs can be used within a DRM system. RELs are expressible in a machine-language. Although RELs may be processed directly, they can be encountered when embedded as metadata within other documents, such as eBooks, audio or video files. Notable RELs include: ccREL An RDF Schema used by the Creative Commons project to express their licences; this same vocabulary has been adopted by the GNU Project to express their General Public License in machine-readable form. W3C Open Digital Rights Language ODRL The W3C Permissions and Obligations Expression Working Group has developed the ODRL recommendations for expressing permissions and obligations statements for digital content; the W3C ODRL Information Model offers a framework for the underlying concepts and relationships that form the foundational basis for the semantics of ODRL expressions.

The aim of the ODRL Information Model is to support flexible Policy expressions by allowing the author to include as much, or as little, expressive detail about the terms and conditions for Asset usage, the Parties involved, obligations. The W3C ODRL Vocabulary & Expression describes the potential terms used in ODRL Policy expressions and how to serialise them; the terms formalise the semantics. The wide set of terms in the vocabulary provides the support for communities to use ODRL as the primary language to express common use cases. XrML XrML began with work at Xerox in the 1990s. After passing through several versions and separate projects, it formed the basis of the REL for MPEG-21. MPEG-21 Part 5 of this MPEG standard includes a REL. METSRights METSRights is an extension schema to the METS packaging metadata standard; the function of a REL is to define licences, to describe these licences in terms of the permissions or restrictions they imply for how the related content may be used. "Licence" here may mean either: A "well-known licence", such as GFDL, Apache License or a Creative Commons CC-by-sa-3.0 etc.

A pre-defined licence, like these, but not so well known. Examples would be proprietary "shrinkwrap" licences. A specific licence, created with individual terms and conditions, for content licensed from one party to another. Use of a well-known licence is chosen for its unambiguous simplicity: GFDL means the same no matter, using it. Using an existing licences avoids the problems of licence proliferation, it is practical to use such a licence, to check that a project is complying with it, without understanding too much about what detail it entails. Knowing that "GFDL is acceptable to this project" and "All resources within this project use GFDL" is sufficient. In that sense, well-known licences are a way to avoid needing to use a REL to model the details of a licence, its name alone is enough. Despite this, a REL may still be useful with these licences, it provides a machine-processable way to identify the licence in use, avoiding naming issues and potential ambiguities between "Apache License" or "Apache 2.0 Licence".

The authors of these licences require a means to describe their internal details. These are similar to the well-known licences, in that they're defined before their use and can be applied to many instances of licensing, their difference is that as they're not well known, it's necessary to explain what each of them entails, as the user is always to be encountering each of them for the first time. A REL provides the means to do this. Using licensed content within a project now requires evaluation of the statement, "Are there any resources within this project whose licence forbids a condition that the project requires, or requires a condition that the project cannot permit?". These might include a necessary ability to distribute copies of the project afterwards, or a condition for accreditation on a splash screen that might be unacceptable to some projects. In open source software development, it's common for projects to create their own licence under their own project name, but for the details of this licence to be a boilerplate copy from a well-known licence, or a reference to this licence.

A REL should support this, providing a means for licences to be defined by sub-classing existing licences and changing their behaviour. Many of these licences are little more than vanity licences, although other dependent projects must still be able to work with them; these are licences that are created as needed, for specific pieces of content, or specific end users. This is so that they may have use-specific conditions attached to them, such as expiry dates. Although these licences might be based on a standard boilerplate, each one is thus unique. Referring to them by name could not work as there's no single, stable name. It's thus necessary to use a REL to express each one in terms of its individual properties. Examples might include a time-limited contract to watch TV sport for a month, as paid for by an ongoing contract, to watch this within the home but not to show it within a public bar. A REL may conveniently use an Entity-Attribute-Value model, as for RDF, to structure its description of a rights model.

Such a model expresses itself as lists of: Entities Concrete "things" or "classes", e.g.:Work/AssetThe item being licensed. LicenceThe licence when this is either a "well-known" licence or else an instance of a specific licence, such as content playback rights purchased
