Inviting proposals in literary and performing arts by December 6, 2013
East Meets West Music has released Raga and Raj, as part of its Utsav! series of recordings celebrating the legacy of Ravi Shankar. Included is Eight Ragas, the 2010 composition developed through a Creative Work Fund collaboration among composer Barry Phillips, Linda Burman-Hall and Lux Musica Ensemble (of the Santa Cruz Baroque Festival). The recording includes a selection of experimental compositions that reflect and re-imagine musical encounters between North India and British traditions in the late 1700s.
Heather Stallings (then Heather Drohan) collaborated with Zyzzyva in 1998 to develop and publish her first novel, False Alarm, as part of a “Zyzzyva Discovery” book publication series featuring new writers. Now installments of her fictional “Click City,” are appearing Wednesdays through Sundays in the “Datebook” section of the San Francisco Chronicle.
