Street Art

I am a big fan of found art – in fact, our family makes weird little sculptures from bits and pieces of man-made and natural objects.

As a result, I find this photo series of juxtaposed and overlapping posters, stickers, graffiti and stencils from SoHo particularly evocative and appealing.

Billie Holiday lives, but apparently the the photographer doesn’t recognize her, unless his title – “Woman With a Flower” – is meant to be ironic.

I also like the multiple authorship of these assemblages: whoever comes along last gets to frame and comment upon all that went before.

Music Review: Sabine Devieilhe and Alexandre Tharaud – ‘Chanson D’Amour’

Devieilhe's vocal quality and interpretive sensibility suit these songs marvelously well, whether it's Fauré's grave melodicism, Debussy's gossamer textures and fringe weirdness, Ravel's hypnotic mysteries and childlike play, or Poulenc's lighthearted colors.
