Steve Parker Wins 2018 Tito's Prize
Big Medium selects composer/sound artist for $15,000 award
DAILY Arts  July 17, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...The man who makes music out of grackle calls and bat sounds, who's composed works for zombie trombonists and and a car horn choir, who's made tubascopes and a musical bicycle, has won the second Tito's Prize from art collective Big Medium. Composer/sound artist/curator Steve Parker will receive $15,000 and a major solo show this fall...."

"Steve Parker: War Tuba" at Big Medium
In exploring sound's relationship to conflict and use in it, the artist fuses past and present, melody and discord, into a remixed reveille
Arts Review  November 8, 2018, by Melany Jean
"...Still audible in spite of the headphones, a broadcast fills the room: a plaintive man's rendition of "You Are My Sunshine" and a woman's mournful crooning in another language. This is just a seconds-long snapshot of the soundscape at Steve Parker's "War Tuba Recital," the solo show prize and product following his winning the 2018 Tito's Prize...."

Steve Parker's Song for Bat / Man
For this year's Fusebox, composer Steve Parker flies a batty Austin concert with live echolocation
Arts Story  April 7, 2016, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...No bats, Austin-based trombonist and new-music fomenter Steve Parker assures us, will be harmed in the production of his latest spectacle of sound and structure. Not a single flying varmint of North America's largest colony of Mexican free-tailed bats, happily ensconced beneath the Congress Avenue Bridge, will be discomfited by Parker's interactive concert that's set to premiere as a final part of this year's Fusebox Festival...."

Austin’s Steve Parker Has Built You a New Set of Ears
The audio provocateur expands (again) the local dimensions of sound
DAILY Arts  September 13, 2017, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Of course it’s always a good idea to enjoy the array of wonderments that the Austin Nature and Science Center has to offer, citizen – but maybe it’s an even better idea now, because of Museum Day, and especially because of what that envelope-pushing composer and trombonist Steve Parker has installed up there among the trees: Tubascopes...."

Adam & Steve
It’s an honest, refreshing comedy about love – gay, straight, or both – and is a date movie for all occasions and persuasions.
Film Review  April 7, 2006, by Marrit Ingman
"...Directed by: Craig Chester. Starring: Craig Chester, Malcolm Gets, Parker Posey, Chris Kattan, Melinda Dillon, Paul Sand, Sally Kirkland and Julie Hagerty..."

Symphony No. I-35
Finally, a Traffic Jam we can enjoy, thanks to composer Steve Parker
Arts Story  April 9, 2015, by Natalie Zeldin
"...The exasperating stillness, the exhaust fumes, the expletives screamed at you (and by you). But while the rest of us have been stuck under that particular black cloud, composer Steve Parker has been molding the silver lining..."

Why Tom Parker Never Looks the Same Way Twice
Arts Story  January 16, 1998, by Robert Faires
"...Tom Parker as Nat Moyer in I'm Not Rappaport photograph by John Anderson According to Tom Parker, the greatest compliment that he ever received came from a couple who told him that they had seen him work numerous times and just wanted to know two things: How old was he really, and what did he really look like? Those questions pleased Parker so because they signified that he's been doing his job. Parker is a character actor -- one of the city's finest, by the way -- and he devotes a lot of effort to losing himself in the dramatic figures he plays..."

The Amazing Spider-Man
The Amazing Spider-Meh might be a better name for this dullish retread.
Film Review  July 6, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...The Amazing Spider-Meh is a better-suited title for Marvel's reboot of Sam Raimi's original, far superior trilogy. Brit Garfield, taking over the role from Tobey Maguire, redefines the arachno-human Peter Parker as part put-upon high school mensch and part unlikable dick..."

"Drawing Lines: Explorations of Place"
The final exhibit of this public art project shows how every district in Austin has had artists working for it
Arts Story  March 31, 2016, by Robert Faires
"...Aware that construction sites will frequently appear without warning and in unexpected locales, creating abrupt interruptions in the urban landscape, he chose to echo that situation by setting a large sculpture made from everyday materials in a location where sculptures aren't usually seen. He made a large geodesic sphere – 16-20 feet in diameter – with scaffolding materials, and set it on the grounds of the Elisabet Ney Museum in Hyde Park for several weeks last fall. District 10: Steve Parker, Sound Atlas..."

SoundSpace: Downtown NYC 1960
Blanton Museum's music series turns the clock back to minimalism's early years in Manhattan
Arts Story  April 25, 2014, by Robert Faires
"...For the past couple of months, Austin has had the opportunity to see minimalism in some of its most exquisite expressions, via the Blanton Museum of Art exhibition "Converging Lines: Eva Hesse and Sol LeWitt." This Sunday, we'll also be able to hear minimalism, thanks to the museum's ongoing SoundSpace series, which brings live performance – mostly music, but also some dance and theatre – into the Blanton galleries, where it plays off of the visual art on display. Steve Parker is the mastermind of the series, which has, in its four years, graced the Blanton with such audacious live events as a concert of 100 tubas, a work for 80 trombones, instrumentalists playing in an elevator, and a percussion piece with an amplified cactus..."

Spider-Man 2
Even superheroes have to do their own laundry in Sam Raimi's truly spectacular vision that combines human pathos and breathtaking action.
Film Review  July 2, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...His late Uncle Ben’s statement, "With great power comes great responsibility," may be the one thought echoing foremost in Spider-Man’s mind, but it’s enormously clear that this sage bit of wisdom has also been taken to heart by director Sam Raimi. With this sequel to 2002’s comic-book smash, Raimi has crafted a knock-down, drag-out, emotionally turbocharged movie that manages to live up to its fans’ lofty expectations while simultaneously tweaking the storied sad-sack history of Spidey’s secret identity of Peter Parker in delightful – and, most wondrous of all, satisfyingly realistic – new ways..."

Top 10 Dance/Classical Music Treasures of 2015
Leaving deep impressions from 2015's dance and classical music works were the unexpected elements, like screen doors, trees, and car horns
Arts Story  December 31, 2015, by Robert Faires
"...The Crucible in all its pained, paranoiac fury, but without words – just the eloquence of Nick Kepley's intense, agonized movement and Steve Parker's tension-ratcheting music. I've never felt so close to the torment and tragedy of Salem. 3) The Poet Sings: Emily Dickinson (Conspirare)..."

SoundSpace Reframes the Refugee Conversation
Blanton Museum music series explores the refugee experience

Song of America
DAILY Music  December 27, 2007, by Raoul Hernandez
"...I bought Quanah Parker at the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar. Probably shouldn’t say how many greenbacks changed hands, but it was both more and less than you’d think. Pretty good deal for a Comanche bigwig: “Born to Cynthia Parker, an abducted settler white woman, and Chief Noconas, the young warrior led the Kwahadi Comanche in treacherous attacks against ‘white’ intruders..."

EAST 2018: Brenner’s Picks
Our savvy arts reprobate has a few suggestions for you, comma, citizen
DAILY Arts  November 15, 2018, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Do we even have to namecheck Canopy, as if that epicenter of creative industry (run by the Big Medium honchos who started this whole thing) won’t be packed with appreciative crowds? We kind of already covered it, if only obliquely, in this issue's feature about the Saturday Night grand opening of new artschool Atelier Dojo. And of course there’s Steve Parker’s prizewinning War Tuba right there in the middle of it all..."

Five Austin Museum Day Recommendations
Back, tyranny of choice! Back, we say!
DAILY Arts  September 15, 2017, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...We love this place, and not just because we’re a bunch of liberally biased, fact-believing, true-newsmongers. There’s so much to see and do and learn in this elegant and knowledge-rich retreat from the madding urban throng, and now Austin’s Art in Public Places has Steve Parker’s Tubascopes enhancing the Center’s woodsy goodness, and at the end of the sun-dappled day we, yeah, we might just wind up hugging a tree or two...."
