RUBIDIUM-85 AND THE LOVE
moringey_breakfast.jpg
I really love my new submission form. It has saved me hours, it really makes my Mondays happy again.
 
I can tell that you might not all be feeling the love quite yet but you will, partly because once you get used to it, the *change* part of the whole thing will be over, and partly because I am going to change the magnetic field in which your BEC is sitting in order to move your reaction slider to attraction so it will be an attraction reaction and you will be in love with the new form submission system format protocol. How will I do this? Hocus Pocus? Black Magic? Religion? No. SCIENCE. Here's how....
 
 
"By making a Bose-Einstein condensate in a particular isotope -- rubidium-85 -- and then changing the magnetic field in which the BEC is sitting, researchers can adjust the wavefunction's self-interaction between repulsion and attraction. If the self-interaction is repulsive, all the parts of the wavefunction push each other away. If it is attractive, they all pull towards each other, like gravity. Achieving a pure BEC in rubidium-85 required the cloud of atoms to be cooled to about 3 billionths of a degree above absolute zero, the lowest temperature ever achieved."
 
See!? Anything is possible if you just have a little science. BTW-I was not actually able to build my own supernova because, as it turns out, Rubidium-85 is really hard to find.

Also-this is a new template. I am not on a honeymoon with it. It makes less crazy errors than the old one but I am having trouble making it beautiful, in a newsletter kind of way, due to its constraints. I'll win eventually.

On Wednesday, March 21, 2007 at 7 pm, the Northampton Community Music Center will present a Faculty Showcase  concert, featuring over 17 area musicians on the NCMC faculty, as well as special guest, local composer and musician Clifton J. Noble.
 The concert is the culminating event in the series celebrating NCMC s 20th Year.  The faculty are the heart and soul of the organization,  said Jason Trotta,  and it s a great thrill to be able to showcase their talents in this way.  The event will feature a variety of composers and significant diversity of styles. Clifton J. Noble will premiere an original composition to be performed with Justina Golden, Jane Hanson, and Cathy Kay. Aric Bieganek, who teaches classes in the Music for the Young Child Program, will perform an original childrens song, joined on stage by some of his students.

Organist Michèle Smith will perform music by J.S. Bach in celebration of the composer s 322nd birthday. Mezzo-soprano Jane Hanson and Evelyn Harris (formerly of  Sweet Honey and the Rock) will duel in the classic Irving Berlin duet,  Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better.  
 
 The Faculty Showcase concert will be held at 7 pm on Wednesday, March 21 in Sweeney Concert Hall at Smith College. Admission is by donation to benefit the Northampton Community Music Center. Suggested: $10 adults, $5 students/seniors.
Spark Project by Blaze Dance Group
March 16, 17, 2007, 8:00 pm
0305_blazedance.jpg
Dance group uses suggestions from the concerned community to make dances and raise money for local non-profit organizations.

Event - Spark Project by Blaze Dance Group Date - March 16, 17, 2007, 8:00 pm
Location - Thornes Market 3rd Floor (APE), 150 Main Street, Northampton, MA

Tickets - $12 adults, $8 students and seniors, for reservations call 413-586-5553 or email krisend@aol.com

Performance - Blaze Dance Group, a contemporary dance company directed by Krisen Day, along with local visual artists and the Northampton community introduces "Spark Project." The "Spark Project" process began when the dancers placed suggestion boxes in a variety of locations (grocery store, café, doctor's office, oil change facility) asking passers by to write down what was important to them in their lives and in their community. The dancers collected concerns ranging from baseball to genocide in Darfur. The dancers then used the suggestions to "spark" several short dances that show individuals their community's issues reflected back to them through dance.

This dance production will include local visual artists Rythea Kaufman, Rose Oceania, and Dana Wilde who will paint the backdrop as an improvisation during the first half of the concert. The backdrop, like the dances, will be an artistic representation of the concerns of this community. The ideas for the backdrop will be suggested from the audience each night.

Representatives from local non-profit organizations including Safe Passage, AIDS Care of Hampshire County, and Tapestry HIV Client Services (and others) whose causes relate to the concerns that are danced and painted will be present during the concert and will be ready to speak about their cause and accept donations.

Choreographers and performers are Lindsay Ide, Nicole Maiette, Sarah Monson, Sarah Eley, Aimee Stone, Amy Loomis, Brandon Shaw, Anya Brickman Raredon, Arielle Phillips, and Ann Sorvino. Lighting by Emily Brownlow.

LILLIANNA PEREIRA OPENS AT THE INCUBATOR PROJECT SPACE AT HAMPDEN GALLERY UMASS AMHERST
Fractured Tales: Small Works on Paper by Lillianna Pereira

moringey0312_lilly.jpg LILLIANNA PEREIRA OPENS AT THE INCUBATOR PROJECT SPACE
AT HAMPDEN GALLERY UMASS AMHERST
Fractured Tales: Small Works on Paper by Lillianna Pereira
04/02/07 - 04/29/07
Opening Reception: 4/2 from 5-7  PM

Lillianna Pereira Artist's Statement: 
The language of myth allows a story to be a part of a wider universal context. Though these stories and archetypes may resonate very closely with me on a personal level, their creation derives from collective material and their power lies in the meaning and the broader truth that myths convey. Culled images from magazines, books, newspapers (printed accessible ephemera) are manipulated and reassembled in an order to activate the archetypes that lie therein. I never start a piece with particulars in mind, serendipity and the personal unconscious guide the composition and the personal becomes collective/conscious once the stories start to emerge.

Initial funding is provided by the Edward Ingersoll Browne Fund Trust Fund of the City of Boston.

Eligibility

SUBMIT ONLINE FOR ART WALK EASTHAMPTON
Art Walk Easthampton, a monthly, self-guided walking tour of arts and culture, has added a proposal page to its website where visual, music and performance artists can outline what they would like to show or perform if given the opportunity.

All the locations that participate in Art Walk Easthampton can view the submissions for possible inclusion in an upcoming event. The talent describes the work, provides images, identifies the types of venues they would like to be in, the dates they are available and provides contact information. If there's a match between the submission and the venue's interest, the venue contacts the talent directly to handle booking arrangements.
The proposal form is available at www.ArtWalkEasthampton.org and is open to all local and regional artists.

ONGOING
An offer from Joe Blumenthal of Downtown Sounds who generously would like to have artists display their work there. (Downtown Sounds, 21 Pleasant St., Northampton, next to the Pleasant St. Theater)

The window is quite large, and has three panels, each one about 6' X 6', and is about 24" deep. It is exposed to intense sunlight in the morning; the heat of the sun plus the narrowness of the window make it inappropriate to display most musical instruments.

However, the sunlight doesn't hurt most artwork since it's only exposed for a month to six weeks. I normally pay $150 to the artist who installs the window, and work out a consignment agreement for the store to take a percentage of the price if the art is for sale and we manage to sell some of it.

The artwork can be freestanding, lean against a wall at the back of the window that's about three feet high, or (if it's not heavy) be hung from the ceiling.
It's great when the art can have a musical theme, but it's not necessary. Because of its highly visible commercial location, the work should have a mainstream appeal and not have themes which could be offensive. Small pieces don't work well since the window is so large.

If one of your readers is interested in displaying in this context, please have them contact me via email: musician@downtownsounds.com, or via phone at 413- 586-0998.
