  • Setting the Stage for 'Pipeline' | Stanford Live
    intertwined in the lives of families educators and administrators We see how disproportionately they punish people of color something that remains true before and after the performance What struck me most about working on The Pipeline Project was how immediate it felt It was during our rehearsal process that the video of a police officer flipping and dragging a black girl in a classroom at Spring Valley High School went viral Since we ve seen protests at Yale University and the University of Missouri about systemically racist incidents on our campuses Anna has made an artistic career of creating conversations around social justice through theater and in our current climate this work feels vital It doesn t ask for a suspension of belief as much theater does but rather a belief in and an engagement with hard truths The author with Anna Deavere Smith in 2014 It was inspiring to work on this piece in a rehearsal room with so many accomplished and talented women Anna Deavere Smith of course has been nominated for many awards for her one woman shows recently winning the National Humanities Medal and giving the 2015 Jefferson Lecture Julie Baldauff the stage manager just finished working on the Tony Award winning Pippin revival one of her many Broadway credits And Leah Gardiner the director who has won an Obie Award and worked in New York and across the nation at regional theaters showed me so much about strong direction and leadership in a rehearsal room We only had nine days in which she focused on bringing all the details and elements lights and set transitions and more together to tell a coherent dramaturgical story Her strength of vision and creativity propelled this amazing work to the meaningful performance it was at Bing Concert Hall We

  • A Note on Place—plus a limerick at Limerick | Stanford Live
    see every day In what scenery did that composer compose The pictures that follow show the places in which the composers represented in the Irish Chamber Orchestra s performance composed the music we will hear on Wed Nov 4 When I say the composer composed in this place it s only a guess Nevertheless if nothing else these pictures can give us insight into some of the scenes that shaped these composers lives 1 The Royal Academy of Music in Budapest where Béla Bartók taught as a professor beginning in 1909 He composed Divertimento for String Orchestra in 1939 it was the last work he wrote before fleeing to the United States 2 The winter palace of Frederick the Great of Prussia for whom Carl Philip Emmanuel Bach served as a court accompanist Although not expressly directed to compose while at court C P E Bach wrote numerous works during his 28 years of employment Among these works was his Cello Concerto in A Major which he composed in 1753 15 years after joining Frederick s court 3 Schloss Esterhazy in Eisenstadt Austria where Franz Joseph Haydn became Vice Kapellmeister in 1761 and Kapellmeister in 1766 As a court musician Haydn wore livery just as other members of court did and followed the Esterhazy family between their numerous estates He composed his Cello Concerto in C Major between 1761 and 1765 4 Writing to a friend in 1778 Mozart opined Salzburg is no place for my talents He had been born there in 1756 and beginning in 1773 was employed there as a court musician for Salzburg s ruler Prince Archbishop Hieronymus Colloredo Salzburg may have been a small pond but it is where Mozart wrote many of his celebrated early works including his Symphony No 29 in A Major

  • A Los Angeles Kid’s Rumination on Anna Deavere Smith’s "Twilight, Los Angeles: 1992" | Stanford Live
    parents driving me around the soccer fields I played on blocks away from the Federal Building or the non freeway route to my uncle s house in the West Adams district pointing out which stores were looted and burned I remember visiting the Walt Disney Concert Hall which broke ground right after the riots and understanding for the first time the gains and contradictions of urban renewal I sought to figure out how this shaped my experience growing up as an Angeleno in such a diverse patchwork of a city Despite the identification of individual landmarks we still talked about those six days in 1992 in such broad terms race riots uprisings violent altercations terms that could be used to identify trends of systemic racial discrimination showing that the events in Los Angeles were not new However these words could not capture the diversity of emotions and opinions the people of Los Angeles had Years after those car rides I sit here at Stanford in 2015 listening to a conversation between Anna Deavere Smith and Professor Harry Elam after watching a screening of Smith s Twilight Los Angeles 1992 One of the hallmarks of Smith s performance style is that one woman plays all the parts a notion that carries a multiplicity of implications she showcases the diversity of voices within a moment of trauma while creating a unified and universal message through its presentation with one body We realize the uniqueness of these stories and at the same time we are allowed the room to form an emotional connection to them and their truths since it is one voice talking to us Smith showcases the diversity of voices within a moment of trauma while creat ing a unified and universal message through its presentation with one body The fact

  • Darcy James Argue, Twelve-Tone Serialism, and Doodles | Stanford Live
    Schoenberg in the 1920s Serialism can be hard to understand from how it works to how it sounds and why a composer would use it in the first place In the video below Youtube star Vi Hart humorously combines drawings history music theory and musical performance to explain how twelve tone serialism works 0 37 0 56 the motivation behind its usage 6 36 8 01 and how it relates to issues of artistic intent and randomness 13 19 15 29 and how structure influences understanding 17 24 21 21 She also composes and performs serialist adaptations of some familiar songs like Mary Had A Little Lamb 4 19 6 36 quartet version 21 25 23 11 and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star 8 53 10 08 There s a really cool bit at the end where she demonstrates the sounds of geometric shapes using a twelve tone clock 24 46 end What do you think this technique for musical composition might have to do with the conspiracy theories at the heart of the show Check it out and tell us what YOU think Learn more and buy tickets Darcy James Argue s Secret Society Real Enemies Tweet Email Categories Artists
