Music professor Ashley Fure, a composer of acoustic and electroacoustic music, recently added the Rome Prize to her list of impressive accolades in this year alone. Recently, she received a Guggenheim Fellowship, and her composition “Bound to the Bow” was a Pulitzer Prize finalist. Fure, who holds a Ph.D. in music composition from Harvard University, joined Dartmouth’s faculty in 2015.
“The Leftovers” may currently be in the middle of its third and final season, yet I find it no easier to describe the show now than I did when it first started. In fact, I’ve rewritten this particular review more than any other because it’s nigh impossible to explain the hypnotic power of this show.
This past Friday, April 21, Friday Night Rock brought rapper Saba to perform at Sarner Underground. The 22-year-old Chicago native has worked with artists like Noname and Mick Jenkins, and he was recently featured on “Angels,” a single from Chance the Rapper’s 2016 album, “Coloring Book.” Saba released his own project in 2016 as well, titled Bucket List Project. Before the show, The Dartmouth sat down with Saba to talk about his music, his influences and his city.
This year’s Spring Sing will feature the Dartmouth Brovertones, one of Dartmouth’s three all-male a cappella groups, as its headliners and hosts. The Spring Sing, an annual a cappella show whose hosting rights rotate between all of the College’s a cappella groups, will likely feature the group’s longest set until its next turn for hosting duties. Fall Fling and Winter WhingDing, the other two major a cappella shows on campus, operate in the same way, so that each group is able to host one of these major shows approximately every two to three years.
This Sunday, Fred Haas is bringing a brilliant sextet lineup and a deeply personal set of jazz arrangements to the ChamberWorks concert series entitled, “ChamberWorks: From the Heart.”
Alexander Stockton ’15, a film and media studies and economics double major, will screen his first feature-length film, entitled “Transient,” at Loew Auditorium on Monday, April 24 at 8:30 p.m. He wrote and filmed the entirety of “Transient” during his junior year at Dartmouth. Stockton currently works for VICE News Tonight on HBO as a graphics editor.
“Gifted” will be the third consecutive film that I’ve given a negative rating. I want to make it absolutely clear that I don’t enjoy that fact in the slightest.
Peeking into the Jaffe-Friede gallery in the Hopkins Center this month, one will glimpse at the still lifes produced by Susan Walp, the studio art department’s current artist-in-residence. Walp currently has work displayed in the Hood Museum as well as the National Academy Museum in New York. Over her career she has received awards including a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, a Guggeinheim Fellowship and a Bogliasco Fellowship. Additionally, Walp has served as a studio art guest lecturer at the College.
Local residents and students can experience Hanover’s burgeoning live music scene at tonight’s performance by The Mammals, an American folk group based in Woodstock, New York.
Henry Joseph Russell ’15 majored in English and religion while at Dartmouth. His recently published novel, “The Talisman Cock!,” is about two best friends attending boarding school, one of whom procures “Jesus Powers” that allow him to fashion the perfect life for himself. Though the book may seem silly, it is rooted in meaningful concepts such as religion, the Christ story, metaphysics and faith.
Like the film I reviewed last week, “Ghost in the Shell” is a live-action remake of an animated classic. Though, unlike “Beauty and the Beast,” I’ve never seen the original “Ghost in the Shell.” However, a good film should be able to stand on its own without prior knowledge of its source material. Nonetheless, I acknowledge that any problems I have with this remake may be resolved or non-existent in the original anime.
I used to think of myself as a person who likes large quantities of good books, small quantities of good movies and miniscule quantities of very, very bad television. While I never missed an episode of “The Bachelor,” that one episode would fill my brain-melting quota for the week — that is, until a spring break wisdom-teeth removal gave me a week in bed on Percocet, and an unsuspecting Tinder match gave me his HBO GO password.
After spending four years packing schedules with advanced classes, extracurricular activities, volunteering and other application-boosting obligations, most undergraduate students enter college and begin to specialize, dropping wide-ranging affairs in order to hone pet passions. While many still participate in non-academic pursuits, the general trend is to pick a couple and stick to them for the duration of the collegiate career.
Spring term often spearheads change at Dartmouth: warmer winds, lush green trees and a walkable Green. While most of these changes have yet to be observed this year, one transformation has been promptly executed: the Hood Downtown at 53 Main Street now showcases the work of a new artist for the Hanover community to enjoy.
