Carnival of Music #14

Yes! This is the wonderfully exciting Carnival of Music!

Unfortunately, with the somber mood of the nation after Hurricane Katrina caused so much destruction, we only had one submission.

Specifically, The Dawn Patrol discusses the history of one of her favorite performers, a guy named Brute Force.

So, I thought I would do a survey of people who have submitted posts in the past, and see what people are discussing.

The Rambler, who is hosting the Carnival of Music next week, has a Roundup of the Contemporary Music Scene in London for this month.

The Bookish Gardener takes on a music meme, examining the popular songs during your high school years. Lots of other people have done this meme, including your humble host, the LlamaButchers, Memento Moron, and The Republic of T.

Music Thing notes a music blog focusing on the current music of New Orleans musicians. Specifically Redhouse Jazz, who has lots of interesting posts.

The Common Room notes some ancient hymns, for a time of sorrow.

The Well Tempered Blog notes some interesting results, when researchers examine the brain in people playing scales and Bach.

On The Road answers the question: "What's Electronic Music?"

Sounds Like Now stays in the Now, and reports on the condition of Michael Brecker, a saxaphonist with myelodysplastic syndrome, and links to the NYT article.

Rocket Jones notes a site with free printable sheet music.

Of Music and Men writes an obituary for Hermann Michael, a conductor and a friend.

The Fred-O-Sphere notes LivePlasma, a graphical representation of musical connections. He also notes some problems.

And Tammi's World does a different music meme: Sweet Sweet Music of Life.

So, that's a wrapup of people from the first 5 Carnivals. As usual, make your submissions to, and thanks to John Lanius at TexasBestGrok for organizing this thing.

Finally, for people in the Houston area, I would note that HandStamp has several posts on various events, either at a reduced rate or free for Katrina refugees, or benefit concerts. I would especially like to note SkyBlue72 and Zwee's concert at the Last Concert Cafe, Sept 10, 5-10 PM.

Crud, thanks. English needs neutral pronouns.
