Question: How much will the Walt Disney Concert Hall really add to the performing arts offered by the Music Center in downtown Los Angeles? Answer: 16%. Maybe that sounds suspiciously simple, but behind the stainless steel panels and high-flown civic rhetoric, the chief bottom-line goals behind downtown's new $274-million concert hall are to give the Los Angeles Philharmonic a better-sounding space and to boost the arts scene in downtown Los Angeles.

Remember the Pacific Rim? The term isn't heard much in art circles anymore, but in the last dozen years of the 20th century, it was everywhere.

"This is an attempt to do more than just rent out space," says Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater executive director Mark Murphy.

Susan Solt, dean of the school of theater at CalArts and the school's Center for New Theater, has resigned. She will take a position on the faculty and work as dramaturge in the theater writing program headed by playwright Suzan-Lori Parks. Solt founded the Center for New Theater, the professional producing arm of the theater school, which staged an unconventional, all-female "King Lear" in downtown Los Angeles in 2002. "Lear" later went to the Frictions Festival in Dijon, France.

Maybe it was the sheer fatigue from driving to Los Angeles from San Francisco before stepping onstage Tuesday at REDCAT. Maybe it was the freeway traffic jam that delayed their arrival until a half hour after the scheduled start time. Whatever the cause, alto saxophonist Steve Coleman's performance with his group, Five Elements, rarely achieved its usual high standard of inventiveness.

Several years before his death in 1998, the respected composer Mel Powell--whose music will be the centerpiece of a concert at CalArts next Wednesday--was speaking in an interview about the life of a contemporary composer in the twilight of the 20th century.
