      Greetings and happy 2008 (still getting used to that myself),

      In the latest issue of Perfect Sound Forever
      <http://www.perfectsoundforever.com>, you'll find (among other things):

      Indian philosophy
      "Most of the Bangla songs made in '70's, '80's and even in '90's were
      in fact repetitive light permutations of the love words. In fact there
      was no substantive paradigmatic change in the content of the popular
      categories of filmy and non-filmy Bangla love songs. In a monotonous
      straight line, this parameter was existed and still exists in the
      twentieth century sacred
      narrative of Bangla's love affairs. In Kamal kumar Majumdar's words,
      one can be confused with Bangla modern songs as if a telegram."

      Opera triumphs & woes
      "Which takes longer? Writing the opera or getting to hear it? That
      question is prominent in the mind of Cleveland composer Monica
      Houghton, who decided to write an opera in 1997. Granted, not everyone
      comes up with that idea, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.
      It was a logical sort of progression. Monica was so taken with
      Tchaikovsky's most Russian opera Mazeppa that she suddenly had this
      mad passionate idea. "It really struck me... It was so Russian, and
      had such a sense of place. I wanted nothing more in the world than to
      write an opera with that 'sense of place' about my country- the
      American West.""

      Post-Milan interview
      "Since PSF's 1998 interview with leader/singer/bassist Milan Hlavsa
      (who died in 2001), PPU have carried on, touring and playing widely,
      including a 1999 North American tour hitting Boston, Montreal,
      Toronto, Washington, New York, Minneapolis, Seattle, San Francisco,
      Los Angeles and San Diego. They have participated in myriad special
      events, most famously backing Lou Reed on his 1998 visit to Prague and
      participating in Tom Stoppard's 2007 Czech debut of Rock 'N' Roll. PPU
      has also produced several CDs and videos including a 2001 Milan Hlavsa
      Restrospective, 2001's Lazy Love, and 2004's Passion Play, a
      collaboration with the Agon Orchestra."

      A multi-part tribute including David Toop's brief encounter with the
      composer, Daniel Varela on his period of intuitive music, Gary Gomes
      with a general overview plus from our archives, an interview from 1998
      and a tribute from former student Holger Czukay.

      Crazy Czechs- interview
      "They stormed the country in typical Uz Jsme Doma fashion. They tore
      through 28 cities in as many days, and if you focused solely on
      guitarist-songwriter Miroslav Wanek -- catching that cryptic, almost
      private smile coming to his face just before a series of piercing
      screams in the middle of the song "Jassica," or, watching him, eyes
      closed, rocking his head back and forth with an almost Buddha-like
      expression during the fierce chord solo in the song "Napul/Halfway" --
      you might think that nothing at all has changed since 2001, the last
      time the difficult-to-classify, impossibly inventive Czech rock band
      toured the United States. "

      We're always looking for good writers and/or ideas so let us know if
      you have anything to share.

      See you online,

        Renner brings "Scientific Method" to KWUR

        a.m. to 11 a.m. Thursday mornings on KWUR (90.3 FM).
        The program is called "The Scientific Method" and
        features a mix of vintage and modern sounds; for
        example, the playlist for this week's installment ran
        the gamut from bebop tracks by Bud Powell and Kenny
        Clarke to more recent recordings from the likes of
        Ernest Dawkins' New Horizon Ensemble and the Lincoln
        Center Jazz Orchestra.
        Renner's been involved in various aspects of the St.
        Louis music scene since the 1980s; his activities have
        included writing for the seminal local rock fanzine
        Jet Lag, working at community radio station KDHX, and
        playing guitar with various
        experimental/ambient/post-rock groups such as Tiger
        Mountain, Cenozoic and his current project learn,
        KWUR is the low-power radio station operated by
        Washington University. If you're close to the Wash U.
        campus and get decent FM reception on your radio of
        choice, you may be able to pick it up over the air; in
        other areas, your best bet probably is to access the
        online stream at the station's Web site.</a>
