The Health Costs of Cost-Sharing

The Letters of Mozart’s Sister Maria Anna Get Transformed into Music

The talent of an individual may not always run in the family, but we can never discount the possibility of its doing so. This is true even in the case of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, not just one of the best-known composers ever to live, but a byword for deep, innate, and unrepeatable genius. Mozart was composing original music at the age of of four or five, an astonishing fact we know today in part because his older sister witnessed and later attested to it. Known as Nannerl, Maria Anna Moz...

A year of pandemic: Through the lens of photographer Hans Gutknecht

Masks, it may sound silly, but I can’t wait to be able to see people’s faces again. Photography has been my life, picking up my first camera when I was 12 years old and never setting one down. I have always been a photographer that focuses on people and telling their stories through my lens.

Brian Eno Explains the Origins of Ambient Music

When William Basinski released The Disintegration Loops in the years after the September 11, 2001 attacks, it was the sound of decay preserved for posterity — recordings of decades-old tape loops literally falling apart on their reels, as the World Trade Center ruins smoldered across the river from the composer’s Brooklyn studio. The piece was performed ten years later by an orchestra at the Temple of Dendur, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, for the tenth anniversary of the attacks. An...

The Story Behind the Iconic Bass-Smashing Photo on the Clash’s London Calling

Pennie Smith was not a fan. Maybe that’s what made her the perfect photographer for The Clash. “She was never particularly into rock music,” writes Rob Walker at The Guardian; she wasn’t starstruck or overawed by her subjects; and she also wasn’t even particularly in love with the most famous shot of her career — the iconic photo of bassist Paul Simonon raising his Fender Precision at New York’s Palladium, seconds before smashing it to bits. “I said, ‘it’s completely out of focus,’” Smit...
