Pop cartographers

Joe Hertler & the Rainbow Seekers cover a lot of musical terrain

by Ty Forquer
The inscription “terra incognita,” Latin for “unknown land,” was often used by early mapmakers to mark unexplored areas of the world. These dark corners Review of the earth were mythologized as the home of all manner of fantastic and terrifying creatures. Despite the cartographical reference, “Terra Incognita,” by Joe Hertler & the Rainbow Seekers, isn’t a sprawling album.

The first exhibit Rush curated as founding director of MSUīs Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum captured dozens of elusive moments in a haunting array of photographs, paintings and videos called “In Search of Time.” Time caught up with Rush only two and a half years after landing his dream job as director of a spectacular new contemporary art museum.

Bookends and deep ends

Grand piano disc starts with Schubert and sails into the unknown

by Lawrence Cosentino
Sailing off the edge of the map into unknown territory might seem like a quaint idea in the age of GPS. Here there be dragons — ha ha! That was nervous laughter. Have you seen the news lately? Been to a hospital or a cemetery? The third part of “The Ends of the Earth,” a grand, terrifying and beautiful new work for piano by Honolulu-based composer Thomas Osborne, heaves like ocean swells, shudders like the crack of doom and tolls like a marinerīs bell.

Most will recall the facts history classes drilled into our heads: On April 14, 1865, John Wilkes Booth snuck into Lincoln’s private box at Ford’s Theatre in Washington and fired the fatal shot. Fewer know, however, how Booth met his end. History has recorded that Booth was killed by Sgt. Boston Corbett, a member of the 16th New York Cavalry. Corbett was a member of the 29-man hunting party charged with capturing Booth alive.
