What’s so funny about Quest­love and un­der­stand­ing?

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Showtime - Palm Beach - - THE GO GUIDE - Ben Cran­dell

You may have no­ticed that we live in a world that is in­creas­ingly be­ing di­vided into smaller and smaller groups. We are con­stantly be­ing en­cour­aged to di­vide our­selves — by na­tion­al­ity, by re­li­gion, by po­lit­i­cal opin­ion, by race, by the amount of money we have. My piece is de­signed so that, at least for a few min­utes, we can un­di­vide our­selves a lit­tle.

That’s Pulitzer Prize-win­ning com­poser David Lang, co-founder of re­bel­lious mu­si­cal group Bang on A Can, talk­ing about his new work “har­mony and un­der­stand­ing,” which will get its U.S. pre­miere 8 p.m. Satur­day in a New World Sym­phony per­for­mance that can be seen dur­ing a free Wall­cast pro­jected on the side of Mi­ami’s New World Cen­ter.

The power of bore­dom

Cre­ativ­ity might be in jeop­ardy be­cause one of the key com­po­nents of be­ing cre­ative is bore­dom and si­lence and iso­la­tion.

That’s part of a re­cent NPR in­ter­view with Ah­mir Thomp­son, the DJ, mu­sic and tele­vi­sion pro­ducer, former NYU pro­fes­sor and founder of the on­line hip-hop and alt-mu­sic web­site Okay­player, bet­ter known as Quest­love. He’s not telling you not to hit his Art Basel DJ set at the An­der­son in Mi­ami Satur­day night, but al­low­ing that some good could come from stay­ing home. RSVP: Face­book.com/ TheAn­der­son­Mi­ami.
