Where Have You Been? visits The Temple of the Divine Feminine

In this episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?” we vis­it The Tem­ple of the Divine Fem­i­nine, on SLEA Region 2. It’s the cre­ation of 20 women artists and cre­ators coor­di­nat­ed by KismaK­SR Res­i­dent, and occu­pies a full region  — a very full region — with mes­sages cel­e­brat­ing fem­i­nine pow­er, cre­ativ­i­ty, and voic­es, includ­ing some impor­tant focal issues.

The instal­la­tion is divid­ed into four major themed areas arranged like a med­i­cine wheel. Each area has an entry gallery, a space for invo­ca­tion, and the tem­ple itself. Each of these four areas aligns with the four ele­ments — air, fire, water, and earth — and are laid out along the major axes of the compass.

Hits In Hi-Fi

Today — Sat­ur­day 26th Novem­ber — we’ll take a nos­tal­gic jour­ney back to the 1960s and beyond, when music was on vinyl and home stereo was new and excit­ing­ly futur­is­tic… with Hits In Hi-Fi.

In the ear­ly days of stereo, a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of albums were released that were designed espe­cial­ly to show off the won­ders of this new way of pre­sent­ing musi­cal enter­tain­ment. Sounds “ping-ponged” across the stereo sound­stage; instru­ments appeared hard on one side and then hard on the oth­er… and there were a lot of space ref­er­ences, bloops and bleeps start­ing and end­ing the pieces — and once the Moog Syn­the­sis­er became avail­able, that was includ­ed in the mix too.

Anthems In Eden: The Journey from Folk into Rock

Today in our Fea­tured Music we  look at the pro­gres­sion from folk into rock in the UK in the 1960s and 1970s. In addi­tion, at 12 noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT, in the lat­est edi­tion of “Where Have You” Been?, where we dis­cov­er things to do and places to see around the Sec­ond Life Grid, we vis­it “Mon­sters, Demons, & Chess” by Monique Beebe (Kon­dor Art Cen­ter). Plus “Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity” every four hours from 4am Pacific.

The Magic of The Musical: “Musicals for the Win!”

The Mag­ic of The Musi­cal explores the blend­ing of music and dra­ma — fea­tur­ing the songs, his­to­ry, and lore that make up the musi­cal the­ater canon. Learn more about some of your favorite shows and com­posers as we cue the orches­tra, and the over­ture begins.

This show is now avail­able on Mixcloud

This mon­th’s episode fea­tures musi­cals that have been  hon­ored with the Pul­tiz­er Prize for Dra­ma.  The Dra­ma cat­e­go­ry of this pres­ti­gious award rec­og­nizes a dis­tin­guished play by an Amer­i­can author, prefer­ably orig­i­nal in its source and deal­ing with Amer­i­can life. It is an impres­sive list that includes every­thing from Gersh­win to Steven Sond­heim, to Lin-Manuel Miran­da.  The list fas­ci­nates as much for what is miss­ing from it as the shows that were honored.

Today Host Cale­do­nia Sky­tow­er explores the list with a few side trips. Join us today: Sat­ur­day, Novem­ber 19th at 2pm pacif­ic at the Vir­tu­al Com­mu­ni­ty Radio The­ater on Chest­nut Hills, or tune in to lis­ten on-the-air, for The Mag­ic Of The Musi­cal:
