How The Unthinkable Becomes The Inevitable

How does the once-unthinkable become not only thinkable but self-evident? How does the unthinkable become something we cannot think away anymore? To get at that, we have to tell a history not only of emergence, but of the formation of the deepest levels of our intuition. I have a strong sense that our best reasoning […]Source:

How The Right Conductor And The Right Orchestra Can Make A Statement

Alex Ross: “For the most part, the classical-music world is in need of conductors with broad horizons, who can guide audiences from a passive worship of the past to an active awareness of the present. The rote repetition of Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, and Mahler ultimately does those composers no favors. But we also need conductors […]Source:

If Hits Can Be Built With Data, Won’t Everything Be A Hit? Well…

“If there are benefits to humans using data to assimilate this kind of information and attempting to make it actionable, the results have yet to impact the production-to-hit ratio of major studios in any meaningful way. That said, I expect that to change very soon as AI models trained to maximize engagement start to show […]Source:

America’s First Drag Queen, And First Gay Resistance Leader, Was A Freed Slave

“His name was William Dorsey Swann, but to his friends he was known as ‘the Queen.’ … Beginning in the 1880s, he not only became the first American activist to lead a queer resistance group; he also became, in the same decade, the first known person to dub himself a ‘queen of drag’ — or, […]Source:

The Obama Portraits: The Book, The Traveling Exhibition, T-Shirts, Coasters, Umbrella…

With 23 items exploiting the portraits currently arrayed for sale on the NPG’s website, the Smithsonian’s merchandising masterminds have found a way to turn an uplifting event into something bordering on tacky. (The book is very good, though.) – Lee RosenbaumSource:

Data: Pop Songs Have Become Sadder. Why?

English-language popular songs have become more negative. The use of words related to negative emotions has increased by more than one third. Let’s take the example of the Billboard dataset. If we assume an average of 300 words per song, every year there are 30,000 words in the lyrics of the top-100 hits. In 1965, […]Source:

Immersive Theatre Began As Innovative, Serious Art. Has It Sold Out?

“What was still considered a left-field artistic proposition a decade ago, popularised by the likes of Punchdrunk and dreamthinkspeak, has become one of theatre’s biggest commercial money-makers. Now, dozens of events across the UK are riding on the immersive gravy train.” – The Observer (UK)Source:

The Remarkable Caroline Shaw

Some composers deal with the threat of boredom by cramming their scores full of drama and extreme sounds. Others embrace it, stretching time and indulging in trancelike repetition. Shaw describes her approach as the avoidance of both extremes. “I know what I don’t like,” she says: “plain harmonies that don’t ever change. What makes me […]Source:

Thanks To The Claw, Philadelphia Has Become A Literary Hotbed

The Claw, founded by authors Carmen Maria Machado and Liz Moore, “is comprised of 19 published and professional fiction and nonfiction writers. Not unlike a book club, it meets roughly once a month, usually at one of the members’ homes. Over glasses of wine, the women ask for advice, offer feedback, and discuss what they’re […]Source:

A First Look At The New, Non-Robbins Choreography For Broadway’s ‘West Side Story’

“Though her work has evolved beyond the minimalist choreography that first garnered her critical notice in the 1980s, [Anne Teresa] De Keersmaeker remains a formalist. Throughout this production, she makes ingenious use of traveling wedge formations, each gang shaped loosely into a triangle with their leader at the point, as they circle, stalk, intimidate, and […]Source:

Scholar And Author George Steiner Dead At 90

“An essayist, fiction writer, teacher, scholar and literary critic … Mr. Steiner both dazzled and dismayed his readers with the range and occasional obscurity of his literary references.” As one New York Times critic wrote, “His bracing virtue has been his ability to move from Pythagoras, through Aristotle and Dante, to Nietzsche and Tolstoy in […]Source:

Turn Libraries Into Arts Spaces? Be Careful!

It’s fantastic to see libraries recognised as valuable public spaces that need protection and increased support, but I’m concerned that the attempt to rejuvenate them through the arts could backfire. Rather than reviving libraries, it could transform them into something else completely. – Arts ProfessionalSource:

The Trump Impeachment Isn’t Over, And The Smithsonian Is Already Looking For Artifacts

“Years from now, when school groups visit the National Museum of American History, they might learn about the impeachment of a president through a fidget spinner. And they will have Jon Grinspan, the Smithsonian’s curator of political history, to thank.” – The Washington PostSource:

Disney’s “Hamilton” Movie Could Change Theatre

While a handful of Broadway productions are filmed for airings on PBS or to be added to BroadwayHD’s on-demand streaming library, “Hamilton’s” road from stage to studio might set a lucrative precedent for future commercial productions to prepare for potential major releases. – Los Angeles TimesSource:

Want High School Kids To Get Excited About Engineering? Try Teaching Them To Make Guitars

“Unlike science and math, engineering and technology skills aren’t typically included in the standardized tests used to evaluate students and their teachers. Because the stakes are high, schools generally make the subjects that are tested their highest priority. When kids make guitars, they learn the math and science, but also the importance of mechanical precision, […]Source:
