For the past seven years Brian Scavo has marked his birthday by throwing a dance party for himself and a growing circle of friends and fans.
Scavo is a performer and DJ, and the parties featured the throbbing, rib-rattling sounds of bass music.
For the past two years those beatday events have been held at the Clazel Theatre in downtown Bowling Green and served to kick off the fall return of the monthly Konkrete Jungle Bowling Green.
The performances feature a shifting cast of local and guest DJs playing a range of a wide variety of underground and cutting-edge electronic music including house music, jungle and drum-and bass genres, in a non-stop soundscape. Add to that a variety of performers including light spinners, jugglers, hula hoopers and breakdancers. Add to that fans who come in costume and offer their own kind of spontaneous performance art.

Aebersold helped students master jazz PDF Print E-mail

The National Endowment for the Arts last week announced its new class of Jazz Masters.
It's a suitably eclectic bunch.
The headline name was pianist Keith Jarrett, beloved of the NPR crowd, most known for his solo rambles that helped conceive New Age music.
Then there's Jarrett's contemporary, reedman and composer Anthony Braxton, beloved of the avant garde, whose titles look like mathematical formulas.
The elder statesmen were represented by bassist Richard Davis, a ubiquitous supporting figure who occupied in every corner of the jazz scene in the 1960s and 1970s as well as playing orchestral bass. Then he turned his attention to education.
Oh, and then there's Jamey Aebersold. The first tweet I saw about the awards called him a banjo player. Well his principle instrument is saxophone, but why he belongs in such esteemed company is his work as an educator.

Alive in music: Composer Libby Larsen shares passion for music with students PDF Print E-mail

Composer Libby Larsen
Composer Libby Larsen's intense love of music is evident as she listened to a student's composition Wednesday.
The composer of more than 400 works, she sat listening to Sarah Modene's piece, she gestured briefly as if conducting it, smiled, furrowed her brow in concentration, each measure seeming to register on her face.
The master class with a dozen undergraduate and graduate composition students is part of Larsen's three-day residency at Bowling Green State University as the McMaster Professor in Vocal and Choral Studies. Her residency will culminate with a concert of her works Friday at 8 p.m. in Kobacker Hall featuring music for solo voice and piano and "She piped for us" sung by the Women's Chorus.
Larsen's extensive catalog includes many vocal solo and choral works as well as 12 operas.
USA Today said of her: "She's the only English-speaking composer since Benjamin Britten who matches great verse with fine music so intelligently and expressively."

In a world of categories, Maurice Sendak had to be put in his place: Children's book author.
Though the artist and writer's work extended well beyond those boundaries, he, in his own grouchy way, accepted this category. As he told the Associated Press in 2003: "So I write books that seem more suitable for children, and that's OK with me. They are a better audience and tougher critics. Kids tell me what they think, not what they think they should think."
Still, the man, who died Tuesday at 83, knew his worth.
I interviewed him once about 20 years ago by telephone.
Then a reporter for an upstate New York newspaper, I sought his comment on a story he knew too well. A parent in  rural school district had objected because when Mickey falls out of bed and out of his clothes in "In the Night Kitchen," he's revealed to have genitals.
"Cock-a-doodle doo," as Mickey exclaimed, to be sure.
"In the Night Kitchen" was often a target of those who wanted to shield tender young minds from feelings those minds were aware of. Sendak's most popular book "Where the Wild Things Are" was deemed by some protectors of youth as too scary.
