Geoff Schmidt's debut collection Out of Time is a meditation on meaning and mortality, and the ways that story and the imagined life can sustain us. In these stories time is running out for the people, yet the power of language, the human ability to tell, to imagine and invent, is a redemptive force.

Music and the Making of Modernity

What does music have to say about modernity? How can this apparently unworldly art tell us anything about modern life? In Out of Time, author Julian Johnson begins from the idea that it can, arguing that music renders an account of modernity from the inside, a history not of events but of sensibility, an archaeology of experience. If music is better understood from this broad perspective, our idea of modernity itself is also enriched by the specific insights of music. The result is a rehearing of modernity and a rethinking of music - an account that challenges ideas of linear progress and reconsiders the common concerns of music, old and new. If all music since 1600 is modern music, the similarities between Monteverdi and Schoenberg, Bach and Stravinsky, or Beethoven and Boulez, become far more significant than their obvious differences. Johnson elaborates this idea in relation to three related areas of experience - temporality, history and memory; space, place and technology; language, the body, and sound. Criss-crossing four centuries of Western culture, he moves between close readings of diverse musical examples (from the madrigal to electronic music) and drawing on the history of science and technology, literature, art, philosophy, and geography. Against the grain of chronology and the usual divisions of music history, Johnson proposes profound connections between musical works from quite different times and places. The multiple lines of the resulting map, similar to those of the London Underground, produce a bewildering network of plural connections, joining Stockhausen to Galileo, music printing to sound recording, the industrial revolution to motivic development, steam trains to waltzes. A significant and groundbreaking work, Out of Time is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of music and modernity.

An Anthology of Plays by the Women's Project Playwrights Lab

Out of Place & Time, Vol. 2, is an anthology of plays by six members of the Women's Project Lab. It's a snapshot of some of the most ambitious work incubating in New York and a diverse compilation of plays for directors and actors seeking exciting contemporary work to explore. With a hilarious and biting intro by Theresa Rebeck that challenges the American theater to celebrate and produce its women playwrights, Vol. 2 showcases writers whose voices sing our world with wit, passion and daring. Bekah Brunsetter's Le Fou teases out the destructive dance between love and vanity. Kara Manning's Sleeping Rough forms a blues ballad for souls displaced between lives. Alexis Clements' Conversation cleverly interrogates the science of speech, while Nadia Davids' At Her Feet plays out another kind of linguistic music, that of six very different Muslim women from Cape Town. Carla Ching's TBA plays with the power of naming, and Andrea Thome's Undone offers a polyphonic love poem to a city crowded with the living and dead.

In Falling Out of Time, David Grossman has created a genre-defying drama - part play, part prose, pure poetry - to tell the story of bereaved parents setting out to reach their lost children. It begins in a small village, in a kitchen, where a man announces to his wife that he is leaving, embarking on a journey in search of their dead son.The man - called simply the 'Walking Man' - paces in ever-widening circles around the town. One after another, all manner of townsfolk fall into step with him (the Net Mender, the Midwife, the Elderly Maths Teacher, even the Duke), each enduring his or her own loss. The walkers raise questions of grief and bereavement: Can death be overcome by an intensity of speech or memory? Is it possible, even for a fleeting moment, to call to the dead and free them from their death? Grossman's answer to such questions is a hymn to these characters, who ultimately find solace and hope in their communal act of breaching death’s hermetic separateness. For the reader, the solace is in their clamorous vitality, and in the gift of Grossman’s storytelling – a realm where loss is not merely an absence, but a life force of its own.
