Imagine that you’re a composer. Imagine getting this commission: “Please write us a song that will allow family members to face the death of a loved one…” Well, composer David Lang had to do just that when a hospital in Garches, France, asked him to write music for their morgue, or “Salle Des Departs.”

Intersections of art & science – for instance: Le Laboratoire as I first learned of it on NPR.

Nature as metaphor, model, and inspiration – for instance: the Biomimicry Database, now in alpha state.

Music musings, commentary and playlists – for instance: Spoon’s Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga is my favorite record of 2007. With a name like that, how could it not be?

walking his wagonAll things Owen Augustus – for instance: OMG! He’s now cruising the walls and furniture and beginning to crawl. Better get to baby-proofing.
