Stayin' Alive

Posted by Geoff Edgers March 28, 2007 12:08 PM

Fresh and disturbing news: In May, BMI will honor the Bee Gees as icons at the annual Pop Awards. Past recipients include Merle Haggard, Brian Wilson, and James Brown.

Perhaps, a reminder will move BMI to rescind the honor.

Jerry Lewis, Endless Loop (A Sample)

Posted by Geoff Edgers September 5, 2006 01:00 PM

Is a sampled endless loop still a loop? Excellent question. We put up only a chunk of this so you actually go to the Shelburne Museum to see Adam Kalkin's new multi-media piece, "Jerry Lewis Palimpsest," which opened a few days ago and runs through the end of October.

Short clip of Knep, Schoenberg explained

Posted by Geoff Edgers April 25, 2006 12:38 PM

As we build this thing, we're going to try to feature sound clips and little movies. Here are a couple:

- A video from Brian Knep, who recently became the first artist-in-residence at the Harvard Medical School. Look for the film link within the story.

- Here's an NPRish piece the Exhibitionist recorded about composer Arnold Schoenberg. The Boston Symphony Orchestra's season is almost over, but music director James Levine's Schoenberg-Beethoven pairing returns in the fall.
