El Gallo May 13, 2011

by Tania Kupczak

I once had a dream in which I went to audition to be in a famous composer's new opera. Upon arriving, I quickly learned that it was in fact not an audition but opening night. The performance had already begun, and I stood in the wings with the composer, who was encouraging me to go out on stage. I was petrified, having no idea what the opera was about or what I should do.

Babble May 13, 2011

by Eric Pitsenbarger

The babbling of a made-up language is fun and funny. It's also beautiful, melodic and expressive. Reminiscent of more recognizable sounds it's also quite serious and not babbling at all, but makes perfect sense...I can understand what's being said and what's illustrated by such effecting performances.

What did you say? May 12, 2011

by Charles Smith

Language has always expressed more through it's connection to music than its current (almost exclusive) literal function. The force with which something is said, what is accented, the tempo...these give more visceral clues to what humans mean when we try to communicate with each other than the words themselves.

Angélica Liddell was the toast of the 2010 Avignon Festival. Her featured  show was 5 hours long and it took 2 nights for me to muster enough energy and sobriety to see it. Funny thing is that Angelica has a difficult time staying sober during her performance too.
