    Lisa Mezzacappa ORGANELLE ORGANELLE is a “set" of compositions, inspired by diverse scientific processes – some enormous and unfathomable, others impossibly microscopic – that form a whole through the insights and explorations of master improvisers. The modular work draws its musical ideas from the different ways that the human body, the natural world, and the cosmos mark and “experience” the passing of time. The notes, rhythms, musical relationships, melodies, and structures in each movement of ORGANELLE are connected to theories of cell biology, astrophysics, paleontology, zoology, or neuroscience, exploring these otherwise-imperceptible phenomena through sound. The first iteration of ORGANELLE premiered in Europe in spring of 2016, with musicians in Köln, DE; Naples and Rome, IT; and back at home that fall, in Berkeley, CA at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. In each presentation, the music is revised, re-imagined, and expanded to embrace a new set of musical personalities and a different performance context. New movements will be added, and old ones discarded or re-worked, to suit different configurations of musicians as the work continues to develop in the coming years. ORGANELLE also reflects my fascination with the challenges of notating musical ideas for improvisers to play (with), which for me has an interesting parallel with the ways science tries to visually represent complex, multi-dimensional systems and processes with flow charts and graphs and diagrams. The practical concern of wanting this score to be playable by any kind of improviser - a laptop electronic musician, an experimental koto player, a guitarist with nontraditional tunings - meant I often needed to find ways of visually representing musical ideas and relationships that were not confined to the traditional music staff. Many of these new graphic notations ended up having poetic connections to the scientific diagrams I was discovering in researching the content for the piece.

This is my favorite Sunday morning show. Fareed's got cojones and is not afraid to ask the tough questions of whatever person or situation. Plus, he is bit younger than most of the bloated talking-heads from the networks. Last Sunday he has Israeli Defense Min. Barach Ehud on who has no comment about nuking Iran. Within three years Barach said Iran would have nuclear weapons. (The Israelis have vowed to stop any Iranian missile program). Several commentators on the Euro crisis did not sound upbeat. Italy and Spain are in the contagion zone and only at least 5 years of austerity measures there and in Greece can stop the contagion. The German and the French combined could bail-out the affected countries but they want austerity measures. If the weaker countries do not adhere, the Euro is sure to fall.

Excellent documentary film "The Interrupters - How To Stop A Riot". Tells the surprising story of three dedicated individuals who try to protect their Chicago communities from the violence they themselves once perpetrated. These 'interrupters' intervene in conflicts before the incidents explode into violence. Their work and their insights are closely entwined with their own personal journeys, which, as each of them points out, defy easy characterisation. Shot over the course of a year by acclaimed filmmaker Steve James, it is a vivid portrayal of a city under siege from spiralling violence, including the brutal murder of Derrion Albert, a Chicago high-school student whose death was caught on videotape. These wonderful human beings, part of the CeaseFire campaign, are truly extraordinary. They deserve as much support as you can give them. http://ceasefirechicago.org/

Jon Stewart, from Saturday Night Live, has consistently been winning the contest for most popular TV News Broadcaster. His sartorial wit and consistently good acting and funny writers have been a daily staple of mine every time a new show comes on, about 225 times a year. If you lean toward the right on the spectrum,you might want to stick to Fox or goose-step Rush. His guests can also can be very informative. The only time I've seen him be afraid was when he had Dick Cheney on, without his Darth Vader costume (Cheney that is), after is eight year stint as the President, errr-uhhh, excuse me, the Vice Prersident. Wait! Wasn't the last Bush declared brain dead during his second year in office and Cheney was running a shadow government? He got Google Earth to delete his home from the maps?

One of the advantages to living in Europe is that you actually have media that is open to all things around the world. While the BBC is a bit stodgy, they are definitely World Class. In America, was have to suffer with isolationist tendencies and protective blinders that keep "those foreign countries" out of our experience. By the way, those foreign countries are all countries with the exception of Canada and Mexico. Thank God we have Globe Trekker on public television and the internet.

Best of the Sunday morning talking heads. He is a liberal who gives a lot of facts to back up his views. His commentaries are sharp and to the point and all over the political spectrum. He really went after China last week for human right violations in their own country and the hypocrisy of that country accusing the US on that subject. That there is actually a (relatively) new program in the genre that would appeal to the 45-62 demographic is unusual. Like newspapers, this genre of news/commentary is aimed at the 62 and over crowd -- a dieing breed, if you'll excuse the bad pun. I hope that his show has a long shelf life and gets moved to the 7pm slot on a Sunday evening.

on July 15th. The show has lost some of it's better production values and nice time lapse of New Mexico's landscapes and skys but the story is still relatively fresh after five years, which is hard to do. Starting this Sunday at midnight you can watch/tivo the entire series. Amazingly, the commercial encourages people to record! The AMC channel has consistently provided some of the best new content starting with Mad Men and Breaking Bad about 6 years ago. Amazing. Who is reponsible for turning around this sleepy cable channel known for John Wayne and old Westerns?

About a trailer park in Nova Scotia. Its rather campy with a story line about a couple of losers in a trailer park who just got out of jail and their adventures. They like to shoot of guns but they are just white trash hosers who don't mean to harm anyone as they drink and attempt to grow dope. My favorite character is Bubbles who wears inch thick glasses backwards that make his eyes look huge. It's a good show to watch when you're trashed. The episode where one of them is offered $160 to buy hydroponics if he acts in a porno movie is especially hilarious. Leahy, as the ex-cop trailer park security is especially funny.

I've been following this story about the murder of Brian Terry and find it sickening that Holder thinks it's more important to keep his secrets, save face and cover up the facts of the case than it is to be open and transparent and release the documents requested by the Congressional investigative team...I wonder why the incredibly embarrasing "Deadheads for Oblamer" agree that Brian Terrys' parents have no right to know exactly what happened to their son...???

But I think you know what happened to Terry, Dewlover. He was shot by a weapon that was from the US government's "Fast & Furious" operation that was badly bungled (see my post in the Trouble Ahead, Trouble Behind thread). I haven't read comments by any Deadheads who feel "Brian Terrys' parents have no right to know exactly what happened to their son". Could you please point out some evidence for that assertion? We know where the guns came from. It wasn't a plot to kill Bill Terry. I think the bad guys have access to guns without the US Government's help. Why don't you admit that you just hate Obama and are chewing on this particular bone because it is an election year and this administration has been so free of scandal this is the only thing you have to go on? Nobody on this site cares about this, Dewlover. Nobody. Get help for your hate before it's too late! There are many good, free programs available to help with this tendency.

as previously noted more than once, you are free to post your political views in the current events topic and such topics as may be started in the future where they are explicitly relevant (as, in this case, should there ever be an Eric Holder topic). This, however, is the TV topic, with no relevant connection whatever. Any future such posts here or in other inappropriate threads will be summarily deleted. Thanks. Mod hat off.

Breaking Bad returned last evening for it's fifth and final season, sort of. The crew and cast has finished filming 16 episodes. 8 of which will air this year and 8 the next. I think it's great that writer and creator Vince Gilligan is pulling the plug at the story-line's logical ending rather than extending it out into banality for commercial reasons alone. While AMC touts this show as the greatest dramatic series ever on television, a fact that I certainly wouldn't agree with, I still find it hard to point to any TV show with better acting. The production values are certainly some of the best I have ever seen. Technically, this series is state-of-the art. Nobody does it better. In fact, last night's show had it's own website where viewers could interact with polls and short videos and such. It's ridiculous with the problems facing humanity that a fiction TV program breaks new ground with this technology while pressing issues remain untackled with this kind of tool! Last night's episode showed that Mike is angry that Walt killed his boss Gustavo. Ed survived his accidental fall while being shaken down by Saul's "A" team for the IRS payment because of Skyler's fears. Saul wants out of his professional relationship with Walt, who in turn asserts his passive-aggressive nature. Walt and Jesse use a giant magnet to erase Gustavo's laptop in the evidence lock-up because it contains surveillance footage of them in the super-lab, which is now a smoking crater. Unfortunately, this action reveals another clue from Gustavo's personal effects. On we go. There isn't another TV program I care about or watch on a regular basis. I'm not hopeful I'll ever find one as compelling, contemporary and consistently good as Breaking Bad.

From Dr Who to the Dark Side of the Moon, the members of the Electronic Music Studios used pioneering technology and ideas to create a radical new soundscape for the 20th century. Post-war Britain rebuilt itself on a wave of scientific and industrial breakthroughs that culminated in the cultural revolution of the 1960’s. It was a period of sweeping change and experimentation where art and culture participated in and reflected the wider social changes. In this atmosphere was born the Electronic Music Studios (EMS), a radical group of avant-garde electronic musicians who utilized technology and experimentation to compose a futuristic electronic sound-scape for the New Britain.
