  6. There is a paradigm (probably only a couple hundred years old) in classical music that it is a passive experience for the audience: seated, silent, still, listening. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that! Being communicated-to on a deeply emotional level the way this music is capable of does not require participation apart from open ears. I should also mention that I’m one of those people who rolls my eyes at statements like “classical music is dead” and “the arts are in trouble”, usually because they are clearly not – there is a higher proliferation of more kinds of amazing art in the world today than ever before – but it is pretty undeniable that times change. Attention spans are maybe a little shorter than they used to be; multi-tasking is a standard mode of being; there is a constant information flow… But perhaps most significantly: there are more and more immediate ways for people to interact and communicate, to participate. People want it both ways, as a personal experience, and as part of the community.

  7. Thor – “Knock ‘Em Down”. Thor (Also known of Jon Mikel Thor) was this musclebound metal singer, and his video was hilarious. This evil space-witch named Pantera enslaves the population of the world below! Thor, riding in his space ship (which is obviously a Millenium Falcon model with some battleship parts glued to it, and crewed by nothing but big-breasted women), beams down! The evil space-witch shoots him with her red eye lasers, but Thor reflects it back with his mighty hammer! The space-witch is defeated!

  49. While it is unclear whether Satie’s only instruction for his keyboard work Vexations (1883) was meant to be taken literally, the musical pioneer John Cage embraced his challenge by organizing the first full performance nearly 80 years later, lasting 18 hours in Manhattan’s lower Eastside. Inspired by Cage’s visionary spirit, “A Worldwide day of Vexations” unites a community of intrepid vibraphonists from around the globe in a complete, live streamed performance of Erik Satie’s epic work. Starting in Australia and ending on the West coast of the United States, segments of over 10 performances will be strung together on http://www.worldwidevexations.com to create one 18-hour performance in its entirety. Some contributors will perform small portions of the work, while others will be performing the piece in full, realizing all 840 repetitions as Satie suggests. This project is both in celebration of the audacious community of percussionists everywhere, as well as John Cage’s legacy which has inspired us all to continually innovate and take risks.
