“Cellist Sonja Myklebust has visions of performing for a captive audience of lab rats. Her professors and classmates think she’s on to something.
The rodent concert might not earn Myklebust a gig at Carnegie Hall, but it could be a compelling final project for a UW course she’s taking this quarter, Art and the Brain. Offered through Digital Arts and Experimental Media(DXARTS), the course is co-taught by an artist, an art historian, and a neuroscientist who share an interest in the intersection between art and science.”

Sixty years after it took the world by storm, rock and roll continues to be a vital musical force. It may have branched off into a million little variations, but it remains the subject of documentaries, scholarly volumes, and much more. This collection from the WGBH Open Vault brings together dozens of interviews with rock and rollers from the 1950s to the 1990s. These interviews were originally conducted as part of a co-production between WGBH/Boston and the BBC. All told, there are over 160 interviews here with folks like Ben E. King, Al Kooper, Dick Dale, Kenny Gamble, and Leon Huff. Each video also has a transcript and complete bibliographic information. Visitors can search through interviews by name, date, or media format. Users are encouraged to leave their own comments on the videos as well.
“About 1 year ago we reported that renowned Japanese architect Arata Isozaki will team up with British-Indian sculptor Anish Kapoor to create an inflatable concert hall. Dubbed Arc Nova, the mobile venue will tour the earthquake and tsunami-ravaged areas of Tohoku, delivering hope and encouragement in the form of music.”
