SANTA BARBARA -- The title of Olivier Messiaen's "Vingt Regards sur l'Enfant-Jesus" does not translate easily into English. A common version is "Twenty Gazes Upon the Child Jesus." But "regards" also implies "aspects" or "contemplations." One translator, apparently feeling that any suggestion of corporeality would be misleading, simply supplied ellipses for "regards." After all, Messiaen's mystical music invites out-of-body experiences.

If architecture is frozen music, perhaps music is liquid math. And perhaps not. For Christopher Taylor--who graduated with a degree in mathematics from Harvard in 1992 (with highest honors, no less) and won the bronze medal at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition the next year--the parallels between math and music are indirect at best.

More than 40 municipal bond underwriting firms have endorsed a self-imposed ban on political contributions as a way of avoiding possible conflicts of interest and allegations of influence peddling. Nineteen of the firms met in New York on Wednesday with Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Arthur Levitt Jr. to spell out how the initiative will be implemented.

Smart but impersonal, Christopher Taylor's local debut recital, Friday night at the South Bay Center for the Arts, still engaged the listener through most of its length in a combination of largely familiar but unusually juxtaposed repertory. In another order, the Brahms-Bolcom-Gershwin-Bach-Beethoven program could have been deadly--but it wasn't.

With the steamy, darkly amusing "Kiss Me a Killer" (selected theaters) director Marcus De Leon and his co-writer Christopher Wooden have in effect set down "The Postman Always Rings Twice" in East Los Angeles. The result is a contemporary film noir with a salsa beat, modestly budgeted but resourcefully made, in which the comic moments are deliberate, a nod to audiences in acknowledging that the plot twists and genre conventions of the B picture are awfully, awfully familiar.
