On April 16th, the ASO will be performing the world premier of a piece they commissioned from Michael Daugherty that he calls a “piece for electric guitar and orchestra with kind of a rock and blues groove”. It’s to honor Gee’s Bend, and it’s called “Gee’s Bend for Orchestra and Electric Guitar”.
Late last month, I found this really attractive mag/site that has an interview with Mary Lee Bendolph about her quilts. This latest issue of theirs has a segment (look at those pics!!) on Jason de Caires Taylor, who is making underwater sculpture. Unspeakably beautiful:
