Punya Srinivas on Veena  
VIDEO

There are two branches in Indian classical music: Carnatic(South Indian)
and Hindustani(North Indian). The Sitar is used in Hindustani music, and
is paired with the Tabla. The Veena is used to perform Carnatic
compositions, and is joined with the Mridangam and the Ghatam as in
this video.  South Indian instruments are constructed with local wood,
different from that used for the Sitar.

DESIGNING SOUND

In Japan, the sounds of nature-the pitter-patter of rain, the trickling of a
stream, blowing wind, chirping birds-are often associated with the
changing seasons. Japanese in past ages would listen to these subtle
sounds as they observed their surroundings with great sensitivity --
they created a distinctly Japanese world of sound.  Hiroaki Ide is a
sound space composer who is continually exploring the possibilities of
sound

Franz Liszt was born 200 years ago today on Oct 22, 1811.  The original
pop star, women were known to swoon at his concerts -- the
phenomenon even given the name Lisztomania.  He was an
extraordinary composer, extraordinarily generous to many greats (like
Beethoven) whose works he popularized by transcribing them for piano
and performing them.  A formidable pianist, his compositions are
notoriously difficult to play -- in his time only he could!

Africa -- the German Afrika Korps and the British 8th Army.  It's popularity
was universal (partial list of translations below).  Schulze died on Oct 14,
2003.
