This show is NOT for the faint of heart. It is a truly deep journey into the most abstract and profound realms of electronic music. It is a jaunt into a space and time that reflects the direction music is taking as we fly into the ultra_future. 2012 may very well need a soundtrack, and these artists and their music could be the candidates for that task.
Others who enjoy the sublime abstraction of the concepts of stress-release or impending earth changes could possibly discover the music's ties to physiologically empowering rhythms that exist in indigenous cultures and traditions; modalities which are meant to LIFT YOU UP and BRING YOU THROUGH blocks in creativity and consciousness in order to reveal a higher state of awareness.

On February 5th, my Great Teacher passed on into Mahasamadhi. His presence, his effort, his attention, his love, his devotion and his teachings have forever impacted the face of planet Earth. Personally, I have been enmeshed in Transcendental Meditation [TM] since just about the time I was born.
I attended courses with my Mom and I began meditating with a walking mantra and later moved on into the more advanced techniques. As a high school student @ Maharishi Upper School in Fairfield I spent my time rebelling against the dogma of the TM Movement, and then at the University of Iowa I began to explore consciousness via music, light and art...Raving and electronic music became power tools which needed juice and Transcendental Meditation was the obvious choice for me.

"Whether she's playing the smoldering blues, soulful rock or country-tinged folk, Sharon Bousquet does everything with sultry grace. She's a woman with so much music inside her, it's as if she can't help but let it bubble out all steamy-like across a wide range of genres.... She has
considerable prowess on the acoustic guitar, yet she puts her instrument down occasionally to belt out an a cappella tune like the gospel-tinged "Temple".... Bousquet has the substance to rise to the top." - The Metro (Santa Cruz) - RP

Scalpel
A young burn victim remains in a coma until a ghost appears.
A doctor discovers he can predict when a patient will die.
A clinically dead patient later recounts extraordinary details about the private lives of her caregivers.
A physician needs the help of a Navajo shaman to exorcise the spirit of his dead patient.

These things really happened-and neurosurgeon Allan J. Hamilton was involved in every one of them, and many more. Based on thirty years of medical experience, The Scalpel and the Soul tells the unspoken stories behind remarkable patients and strange events, and shares the moral and spiritual lessons found in them.

The Téka Band was on a tour in the Midwest and the Magyar Mix crew caught up with them in Bloomington, Indiana where they were giving a concert closely followed by a Hungarian folk "dance-house" streching well into the night (or was it the morning already ??? ) as part of the 28th György Ránki Symposium by the Indiana University on "Folk Music Revival and the Dance-House Movement in Hungary".

This is an interview in Hungarian with Pál Havasréti, Beatrix Tárnoki and Csaba Ökrös recorded after the last day's dance workshop at the Indiana University.

Moore & FinkelsteinThis Friday on Planet Erstwild at 3pm, James Moore interviews Professor Norman Finkelstein about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Professor Finkelstein has written several books on the subject including The Holocaust Industry and Beyond Chutzpah.

His scholarly research has been praised by Noam Chomsky, among others. Though his tenure was denied at DePaul University last year after an organized effort to discredit his work by detractors, which the school says played no part in its decision, he retired and in a settlement the university officially declared him a great scholar and good teacher. He recently spoke at Grinnell University.

Pieta is an artist who brings together the unvarnished humility of Loretta Lynn, the frank, modern rock punch of P.J.

published as illustrated books for young adults, receiving widespread acclaim. In "A Wreath for Emmet Till" she uses a very complex form, the heroic crown sonnet, to tell a tragic story from our not-so-ancient past.

Join Monica and Caroline Monday morning at 8am for a delightful wide-ranging conversation with poet Marilyn Nelson.

Planet Erstwild's James Moore interviews Prometheus Radio Project's John Wenz. As legislation organizer for PRP, John visits Washington DC regularly meeting with members of Congress. Calling in from Philadelphia, John explains bill HR 2802 and how if it moves out the telecommunications subcommittee and receives a hearing, it means a second window for low power radio stations could be just around the corner--but reminds listeners they should do their part to make sure their congressmen sign on to the bill. Loebsack and Boswell have yet to sign on to the bill.

Michael Carrino's second book of poetry, Under This Combustible Sky, is a richly-peopled collection whose denizens are portrayed in a stark light, like that of certain Hopper paintings, a light no less beautiful for its starkness and hard edges. Reading these poems, one realizes that in lives so full of defeat there are redemptions in solitude, and victories within the sacredness of the moment. 'For me,' Carrino writes in the poem "Cat, Rose, Musical Score", 'self absorbed and anxious, objects explain/ passion, obsession; how you have/ no control unless you agree/ before dancing white on white in silence--/ we are what we arrange.' This could well be a statement of the aesthetic brought to the arrangement of this book: a pure witnessing, at times, of a moment's details which speak volumes of the poem's subject in a language that is both economical and plainly spoken, yet rich in its precision.

I think of the poem "The Woman" in which a photograph of a soldier's Korean mistress is ogled and handed around the family table, a favorite conversation piece:

J.W. French
gets around — with a rudder stick between his legs and bugs in his teeth.

The Fort Myers, Fla., man landed his Acro Sport II biplane at the Roseburg Municipal Airport Saturday. Oregon was the 38th state the 72-year-old has visited by biplane since he began an aviation tour of the Lower 48 on June 15.

Next he’s visiting Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota, duplicating the route of his late friend, Sam Burgess, whom French claims is the only person ever to have flown all 48 states in a homemade plane.

Yashar was Tehran indoorsborn in Tehran after the Islamic revolution. During the infamous 1988 'war of the cities' (Baghdad/Tehran) in which Tehran was bombarded by Russian and American missiles supplied to Iraq, his parents fled Iran in hopes of a brighter future for their children. So they ended up in Istanbul, Turkey as refugees of war and about two years later received asylum in the United States of America.

They moved from Cleveland to Los Angeles, most recently settling in Iowa City, where Yashar attended high school and the university. He studied Political Science and International Studies (w/ emphasis on Islamic studies) at the University of Iowa. He's been holding events with the Persian Student Organization on campus to break down cultural barriers between Iran and the United States. He recently embarked on a trip to Iran by himself, his first trip back 'home' since leaving as a child. James speaks with him at length about his impressions and experiences.

Two weeks ago, Tanner & Moore were joined by Congolese native Kabuika Kamunga for a historical discussion and background on the tragic country that has seen so much suffering.

Since 1998, an estimated 6 million Congolese have lost their lives
due to war, hunger and illness. 6 million--never mind the brutal legacy
of King Leopold's Imperial reign of terror, Belgian colonialization,
and the Western-backed rule of Mobutu.

My fellow musician, blogger and internet buddy Jana Pochop (that'd be with a silent “h”) has just released her new EP The Early Year. The Austin based history major turned singer-songwriter has had a jam packed year, from going to Folk Music Grad school to putting out the EP (which includes playing all the instruments you hear on the album!) to touring as a Merch girl with the Grammy winning Susan Gibson and more.

~ Song For Iowa, Lauryn Shapter

I've been eagerly awaiting the new CD by husband and wife Americana duo Truckstop Souvenir for a while now, and the release party is this weekend! Under A Big Blue Sky was recorded in Lauryn and Dennis' home studio here in Fairfield, which is no easy trick with all the frequent trains passing by.

And you just may hear a train whistle during their interview on Lyrical Venus this Tuesday, what with the station being right by the tracks! Luckily it's a nostalgic sound that fits with their themes - dusty roads, wide rivers, tiny mining towns, old time rodeos and lonely motels.

You might not notice them a first glance, but check out the boots on the ladies of VOCO. More than just a fashion statement, the boots are actually an important part of their act! The wide variety of music they perform, from original folk to traditional ballads, make VOCO a little hard to categorize. One thing that makes them stand out above and beyond their gorgeous harmonies is their body percussion sets. And that's where the boots come in - slapping their ankles is a lot louder (and probably less painful) with boots!

Sharon Lock talks about her arrival in Gaza on a boat from Frankfurt, Germany with 44 activists in the first such landing through the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip in 41 years. She reports on the the massive suprise assault by the Israel Air Force which killed over 200 Palestinians and was launched at 11am local time when children we're getting out of school.

Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, who is running for the office of prime minister in next month's Israeli national election along with Defense Minister Ehud Barack, said Israel had "no choice" but to mount the assault in response to rocket fire from Hamas into southern Israel, though no Israelis had been killed in the previous six months.

From 2000, when the first rocket was fired from Gaza, to 2008, rocket and mortar fire from Gaza have killed 20 Israelis. [Statistics from the Israel Project (TIP) website, an international non-profit organization, providing journalists and leaders accurate information about the Middle East.]
