Speaking of riots….
Meanwhile, I’ll have you know that TODAY is the 90th Anniversary of Igor Stravinsky premiering his provocative Rite of Spring ballet in Paris’s Théâtre des Champs-Élysées – Apparently it caused a real live riot!
Speaking of Stravinsky! If you check out the non-fiction section (particularly in the Graphic Novels genre), I’d recommend this fun-and-insightful read. Impressively illustrated, at that!
Staying on the topic of music, then – The L.A. Timse reports:
New journal ‘Radio Silence’ connects writing and rock ‘n’ roll
“… I was driven by my love of the music, my absolute certainty that it was tapping into something, that in the intersection of sound and language, I might find a shadow territory, one that I could make my own…” -Writer David L. Ulin, regarding a new Bay Area literary journal that seeks to trace the relationship between rock music and literature.
