Active Listening
Dance artists Heloise Gold and Julie Nathanielsz, and a new 'Gold Show|Rose Show'
Arts Story  May 29, 2014, by Jonelle Seitz
"...Though her works flirt with absurdity, the contexts she crafts for them – for Watching From the She Palace (1985), she wrote an entire novella – make homebodies of eccentricities. Outside of dance, Gold teaches tai chi and has written a manual for Deep Listening, a composer-founded method of heightening listening and awareness by availing the entire body...."

Good Listening
Meryl Streep speaks on the key to acting and its importance to life
Arts Story  November 12, 2010, by Robert Faires
"...They wanted to know about her process – how she approaches a role and works through a character, how she handles the challenge of playing a character that people hate, how she deals with a fellow actor who holds back during a scene. She delivered each answer directly to the person asking the question, as if theirs was a private conversation without 400 other people listening in..."

Listening Outside the Lines
Kevin Curtin spends four days on the fringes
Music Column  February 1, 2018, by Kevin Curtin
"...With our colony expanding into a metropolis, what's occurring on the fringes – beyond the Red River clubs, honky-tonks, institutional concert spaces – has never been more galvanizing. I spent four consecutive days scratching an itch for niche in nontraditional venues listening to music outside of my strike zone..."

Hard Listening
Reviewing Butch Hancock's winter tour of Texas.
DAILY Music  January 18, 2011, by Raoul Hernandez
"...“Pine Cone,” “Danglin’ Diamond,” “What a World This Mess is In,” and a cappella encore “Owl” – a highlight here as well as last August – represented the former, while his late comrade’s “No Place to Fall” and “Buckskin Stallion Blues” served the latter. Sandwiched in-between, the singer's newly minted musical genre, “hard listening,” counted some of Hancock’s greatest hits: “Naked Light of Day,” “Split & Slide,” Woody Guthrie cover “Pretty Boy Floyd,” Flatlanders’ set staple “Julia,” “You Coulda Walked Around the World,” “Box Cars,” and the stirring “If You Were a Bluebird.” Surely the Bugle Boy will blow more choruses of Butch Hancock in the future...."

Old KUT Gives Way to New KUT So This Member Stops Listening
Postmarks  June 19, 2007
"...(Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion runs twice each weekend on KUT. Ho hum.) I literally hurt trying to listen now while remembering the past. Paul Ray and Larry Monroe have been bandied about as well in a similar manner. Whereas my previous, extensive radio listening comprised 80% KUT, 10% KMFA, and 10% KGSR, my current pattern is more in the line of 45% KMFA, 45% KGSR, and 10% KUT (I will extend kudos for Larry Monroe's Folkways being added on Saturday afternoons). The old Austin gives way to the new Austin, yet I still live here. The old KUT gives way to the new KUT, and this listener and supporter has left the building...."

"...The reissue of Two Nice Girls is nigh, and there are memories to be had and shared and made as Gretchen Phillips presents a night of "bonding," if you will, over Austin and the world's seminal lezzie-alt-folk-rock-phenom. If you are too young or too old to know what it was all about back when it was all about, come on down to the listening party and get your learnin' on.

Finding Writer's Voice
Suzan-Lori Parks isn't coasting, 'cause she's still listening
Arts Story  May 12, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...I meet painters or musicians or writers or whatnot, and they say, "I've been writing like this for 30 years." And sure enough, they have, you know? And I think what happens is the pipeline between the writer and the spirit is pretty clogged if that's the life you're living. You're not listening anyway..."

Tall Tale: The Unbelievable Adventures of Pecos Bill
Watching Tall Tale is like exploring your grandmother's attic. Awash in amber light and shadowy corners and filled to the very rafters with old trunks and books and costumes and...
Film Review  March 24, 1995, by Hollis Chacona
"...Awash in amber light and shadowy corners and filled to the very rafters with old trunks and books and costumes and knick-knacks, it's an invitation to an afternoon of reverie. On the other hand, listening to this very same movie is like listening to your grandfather snore..."

Ink & Paper & the Dark Ambience of Demdike Stare
Because one thing leads to another until we’re all, you know, dead
DAILY Design  September 18, 2017, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...I’ve been listening to the intense, tenebral noisefests of Demdike Stare for about a year now, having been introduced to their work only because of the brand of notebook I tend to write in and which I tend to write in mostly because that brand of notebook works really well with this fountain pen I’ve got...."

7 Chinese Brothers
Jason Schwartzman stars in this comedy from droll Austin auteur Bob Byington
Film Review  September 4, 2015, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...When Larry brings his old beater of a car to a Quick Lube, he picks up a job vacuuming cars after crushing on the manager, Lupe (Pienta). There are some interactions with other characters, but the primary thing that comes through is Larry’s near-apathetic attitude and sharp wit, which he unleashes whether or not anyone is listening...."

A Walk in the Woods
Robert Redford and Nick Nolte walk the Appalachian Trail in Bill Bryson's memoir
Film Review  September 4, 2015, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...A Walk in the Woods is a sterling showcase for two great acting veterans, Robert Redford and Nick Nolte. Watching these two interact and listening to their wizened characters’ riffs amid gorgeous scenery (filmed by another film veteran, cinematographer John Bailey) is a sheer delight – which is a good thing since that comprises the bulk of the movie..."

How I Learned to Love Paramore
Just don’t tell my teenage, emo-hating self
DAILY Music  April 18, 2013, by Abby Johnston
"...There came a point early on in high school when I gave up listening to Warped Tour bands. I never had a ticket to the famed summer festival – a fact I later attributed to my precocious, superior music taste – but really, it was just because my dad realized how annoying it would be and refused to take me..."

Trivium's 'Crusade'
Trivium launches a crusade.
DAILY Music  February 22, 2007, by Austin Powell
"...What did you try to do to up your game for The Crusade? Matt Heafy: We just wanted to make the type of music that we wanted to listen to, regardless of whether or not it’s metal. We just did it the way we wanted to. ITV: I spoke to Corey Beaulieu last year, and he told me that he was listening to a ton of hair metal, and I could really hear that influence creeping into the album in terms of the texture of the sound and the stadium feel. MH: I never really got into the hair metal myself, but everybody in the band has such eclectic tastes that the record doesn’t really make sense in terms of influences..."

Conversations With God
Life-affirming lessons about a generous, forgiving God and the redemptive possibilities of love and charity dominate this movie based on Neale Donald Walsch's bestseller.
Film Review  October 27, 2006, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...Czerny (Mission: Impossible, The Ice Storm) stars as Neale Donald Walsch, a down-on-his-luck transient whose life is turned upside down when he hears the voice of God speaking to him one night. Turns out God has been listening to Walsch’s questions and complaints over the years and he wants the chance to respond..."

Ju-on: The Grudge
Fear of what's lurking just out of sight is at the heart of this Japanese horror film.
Film Review  September 10, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...Along with Ringu and The Eye, Ju-on: The Grudge is at the forefront of a new wave of Asian horror films that rely on giddily escalating atmosphere to impart their undeniable frissons of fear. Watching this – and just as importantly, listening to it – is as likely to set the hairs on the back of your neck dancing the dead-girl shuffle as much as any film in recent memory..."

Metallica: Some Kind of Monster
You don't have to be a Metallica fan to enjoy this candid documentary that in essence is a complex chronicle of people just trying to get along.
Film Review  September 10, 2004, by Marrit Ingman
"...("The Zone: Admission is Believing!") Documentarians Berlinger and Sinofsky (Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills) capture every cheap shot and creative clash; for an official documentary, it’s candid enough to indicate that the group is less megalomaniacal than the Napster controversy suggests. You don’t have to be a Metallica fan to watch in fascination as singer-guitarist Hetfield forbids his bandmates and producer Bob Rock from even listening to the playback after he leaves at 4pm for his rehabilitation therapy, lest they consider having an opinion in his absence..."

The Reckoning
A traveling troupe of actors in medieval England stumble upon a mysterious murder and end up single-handedly inventing the morality play.
Film Review  April 2, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...It’s not until they arrive on the outskirts of a village where a young boy has been recently killed and a mute woman (Minguez) sentenced to die for the crime that Martin has an epiphany. After visiting the accused and listening, via some rough-hewn sign language, he decides to scrap the troupe’s usual plays and instead embark on a wholly new form of theatre, one with the town’s own murder mystery at its very core..."

Its heart, at least, is in the right place. In an industry that promotes an offensively short shelf life for its female practitioners, The Banger Sisters provides a showcase for...
Film Review  September 20, 2002, by Kimberley Jones

The Wedding Planner
As the lovelorn wedding planner Maria (Lopez) puts it, those who can't wed, plan. And those who can't produce smart, sexy material in keeping with the smart, sexy likes of...
Film Review  January 26, 2001, by Kimberley Jones
"...Some of them are downright clownish (Mary's hyperactive-poodle personal assistant, a scooter-riding Italian with stars in his eyes); other roles are bogged down by distracting cameos (Pollak, Najimy).There are some nice touches -- a shy dance in Golden Gate Park, an opening sequence that wordlessly chronicles Mary's solitary, neat-freak existence as she fastidiously arranges cloth napkins and frozen dinners in front of the TV. But touches like this are hampered by an uninspired camera and a third-rate, easy-listening soundtrack..."

My Life and Times With Antonin Artaud
Antonin Artaud, a crazed visionary who spilled his blood and guts into theatrical productions, poems, and drawings that expressed his yearning for art that liberated our souls like ancient shamanistic...
Film Review  December 13, 1996, by Russell Smith
"...But it's clear that most of the carefully hedged praise Prevel receives is simply his payment for keeping those bottles of laudanum coming. Apart from these scenes of poetic shop talk, most of Mordillat's film consists of Prevel and his women listening as the hawk-faced Artaud raves incoherently..."

Before Sunrise
Richard Linklater takes one of the oldest romantic formulas in the book – strangers on a train – and creates a soulful melding of hearts, minds, and camera.
Film Review  January 27, 1995, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...The movie's all-in-one-evening time frame only accelerates their discovery process. Watching and listening to these two is a charming experience; their conversation has the ring of veracity, and rarely does the viewer's interest stray..."

Tokyo Decadence
Drenched in erotic reds and blacks, Tokyo Decadence leaves little to the imagination as it reveals the seamier side of the land of the Rising Sun. Ai (Nikaido) is a...
Film Review  August 27, 1993, by Marc Savlov
"...Definitely not a film for those of more conservative sensibilities, Tokyo Decadence is nonetheless an engrossing social study that -- consciously or not -- draws clear-cut parallels between the powerful sense of ceremony that pervades Japanese culture and the more, uh, secretive ceremonies that infuse its nightlife. Director Murakami is also one of Japan's best-selling and most prolific novelists (his novel Almost Transparent Blue won Japan's highest literary honor in 1976), and as such, the film is infused with a highly charged sense of the literary; it's almost like listening to an audio tape of your favorite author reading his own work, but far more visceral..."

Film Review  March 26, 1993, by Steve Davis
"...Perched like a queen on her throne -- here, the back seat of a 1957 Cadillac -- Jeffrey Strough gives a royal performance in American Fabulous. Blessed with the gift of gab, the twentysomething Jeffrey prattles on about his life as a gay man with white trash roots as if the whole world were listening to his monologues..."

Pictures From a Revolution
Susan Meiselas risked her life photographing the Nicaraguan revolution of 1979. Her images were vivid, arresting; one picture of a young Sandinista hurling a Molotov cocktail was even adopted as...
Film Review  July 24, 1992, by Chris Walters
"...Her images were vivid, arresting; one picture of a young Sandinista hurling a Molotov cocktail was even adopted as a logo of sorts by both sides. Ten years of contra war and misery burned away the revolution's exultant afterglow but not its power over Meiselas' memory, so she and two colleagues went back to Nicaragua in search of the people in her photos, listening to their stories..."

Boyz N the Hood
Singleton's 1991 movie about three black boys growing to manhood in the combat zones of L.A.'s South Central remains a searing cultural indictment.
Film Review  July 19, 1991, by Marc Savlov
"...Ice Cube's character bristles with untapped anger and disappointment as being the less-than-favored son; we've heard this character in a hundred raps, but it's something else to see him on the screen, in your face, in the 'Hood. Singleton's explosive vision ends with the message “Increase the Peace.” Judging from the opening-night body count, though, nobody seems to be listening...."

Blood in the Face
Without a zombie in sight, this is the best horror film in years. Co-directors Anne Bohlen (Roger & Me), Kevin Rafferty (director of The Atomic Cafe) and James Ridgeway (D.C....
Film Review  June 21, 1991, by Marc Savlov
"...The directors have wisely chosen to stay out of the picture, and more or less give the white-separatists a good ten-to-twenty miles of hemp to hang themselves with. Listening to these people talk about the warm fuzzies they derive from their single-minded unity is creepy enough, but when they start shooting out facts and figures seemingly made up on the spot (did you know, for example, that there are 35,000 Viet Cong hiding in the wilds of British Columbia? Boy, was I surprised!), it's hard to keep from laughing out loud..."

Austin Classical Guitar's dream
The quality of the music in this concert was exceptional, but what made it special was the quality of the listening
Arts Review  August 9, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...The music showed how closely Marcum, Williams, and ACG paid attention to what they said, how they honored these young people and their feelings. The quality of the playing was exceptional, but what most distinguished dream was the quality of the listening. dreamBlanton Museum of Art Auditorium, 200 E..."
