If you had mentioned the words rock art to musician Steve Roach a few years ago, quite likely his first impression would have been to think of an album cover. But these days the words are more likely to evoke images of Magnificent, Giant Horse or Red Lady galleries, a few of the ancient aboriginal rock art sites here in the Cape York Peninsula in northern Queensland.

A fight is brewing over the practice of feeding chicken feces and other poultry farm waste to cattle. A coalition of food and consumer groups that includes Consumers Union and the Center for Science in the Public Interest has asked the Food and Drug Administration to ban the practice. McDonald's Corp., the nation's largest restaurant user of beef, also wants the FDA to prohibit the feeding of so-called poultry litter to cattle. Members of the coalition are threatening to file a lawsuit or to push for federal legislation establishing such a ban if the FDA doesn't act to do so in the coming months.

Police fired bean bags, rubber bullets and tear gas to quell people who broke windows and looted stores Tuesday during a protest over the police shooting of an unarmed black man. It was the second day that protesters ran through the streets, and police in riot gear formed protective cordons around City Hall and the nearby police headquarters. Some officers were on horseback.

Fusion rules. And Boogie Butoh might be an apt name for one of the elaborate riffs that movement artist Don McLeod explored in his hourlong solo work-in-progress, "Behind the Mirror," which opened last weekend at Pasadena's Fremont Centre Theatre. Purists can grumble, but Butoh--that austere, sometimes grotesque Japanese dance form--does leave room for whimsy.

Disrespect has many faces, a survey of students at Villa Park High School found. It can show itself in an attitude, a remark, a look. When asked how disrespect is most often expressed, students said 49% of the time it is verbally, 35% of the time through body language and attitude and 16% of the time physically. That finding was among results of a schoolwide poll that sought to determine student attitudes about the state of dignity and respect on campus.

One of the most fascinating aspects of the many forms of music from around the globe is the capacity of unfamiliar sounds to transcend cultural orientation. The passion of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, for example, reached past the style and the language of qawwali music. The ragas of Ali Akbar Khan and Ravi Shankar are enjoyed by listeners who have no knowledge of the rich legacy of Indian classical music.

February 27, 1994 | DON HECKMAN, Don Heckman is a frequent contributor to Calendar.
It's an image straight out of 19th-Century Romanticism. Yanni, gorgeously dressed in pristine white, dark hair swirling, at the center of a formally clad symphony orchestra. Behind the orchestra, soft-toned lights capture rough stone walls, and above everything, bathed in what seems to be the metaphoric light of millennia, is the classic image of the Parthenon. This is New Age music? What happened to the psycho-acoustic transformations, the crystal harmonies and spatial planetary rhythms?
