If I Ran The Zoo: Feb 15-18

15th
Feb. × ’07

Let’s try a new Idea. A brief concert calendar of what I would see each weekend if I had all the money in the universe. I’ll list runners-up so that there’s some concert music on here each time even if I decide to go to a metal or jazz show. Also there will be a […]

Five more for Igor

15th
Feb. × ’07

NEC is having a Stravinsky brouhaha to try and match our Webern festivus. Except they’re doing Firebird with choreography so I guess they win. But what interested me was the intriguingly title gem (i.e. free concert) “Rarely-Performed Masterworks”. Now I don’t know much about Stravinsky, embarassingly little outside the big three “Russian” period ballets, but […]

Big Jimmy Stands Up for the Sforzandos

8th
Feb. × ’07

Tonight will be the first Thursday in a month that I won’t be attending a BSO concert. (For free at least, a gentleman friend of mine is coming in for the weekend and we might go student rush.) They were good concerts both, clearly, and the Globe would do a better job of summarizing them […]

Fotografuję, żeby pamiętać

6th
Feb. × ’07

A lot of rediculously awexome bands were formed at art schools: Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, to start. But how many really awexome bands came from music schools? Exactly. By the way, the answers would have been Dream Theater (Berklee), Alarm Will Sound (Eastman), and Kneebody (also Eastman). One drawback of attending a conservatory […]

Hylastic

Feb. × ’07

I’ve been promising a post about this for a coupla days now, so I better deliver. I’ve been trying to go to more free concerts, in addition to the seven on campus performances that it is imperative that I attend in the interest of my degree. The BSO College Card has been coming to the […]

Mooninites Foiled in Plot to Blow Up Boston

1st
Feb. × ’07

I’m never going to get around to posting about that Lee Hyla concert, because this is simply too rediculous to let go. In case you haven’t been newsing it up, a set of Lite-Brites of Ignitnot and Err giving you the finger as hard as they can that were scattered around Boston were mistaken for […]

A Tale of Two Orchestras

21st
Jan. × ’07

 I’ve mentioned both the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Boston Modern Orchestra Project here before, but I attended concerts by both in the span of three days and couldn’t help but notice the occasional contrast and comparison. The BSO concert I attended was featured Mozart and Haydn, a program which probably wouldn’t have attracted me […]

Back to the Light

16th
Jan. × ’07

 Another set of airports for me today as I head back to Boston for Act 2. I’ll post if Milwaukee happens to have free wifi, but if all else fails I’ve got my trusty new pocketbook to corral all my thoughts in. (My lunch in Logan last month was one of the more productive thinking […]

The Countryside, The Peasants…

12th
Jan. × ’07

Why is it that as soon as I find a sweet place where cool things happen it burns to the ground? This is slightly incorrect, I heard about Pan9 at the same time as hearing about how they didn’t exist anymore. Here’s a page where helping can happen, although most of the big events happened […]

Boston Without A Lens II

1st
Jan. × ’07

I did do some more shenanigans with the Populist II (PDF) before coming back and haven’t gotten my dumb ass around to posting them, until now!!!!11This is Huntington Avenue right in front of the Shaw’s by the Pru. Almost a decent compromise of movement and clarity. I like it anyway.Earlier in the year I took […]
