LUMINOUS RAGAS with Steve Gorn and Bill Buchen

Grammy winner, and five time Grammy nominee, Steve Gorn is creating a new idiom, a music that combines the essence of classical Indian tradition with a contemporary world music sensibility. The strength of this music arises from a virtuoso mastery, generating a vibrant fusion, alive and accessible to western ears. From Indian classical music to world music and jazz projects with Paul Simon, Jack DeJohnette, Paul Winter and others, Steve infuses great mastery with a haunting, lyrical sweetness to bring the healing breath of the sacred to our demanding contemporary lives.

Bill Buchen is a composer, musician and sculptor living in New York City. He has studied North Indian classical music most recently with Selva Ganesh,   Anand Kumar Mallick and Ustad Zakir Hussain and western composition with Gustavo Casenave and Dan Kaufman. Bill has played and recorded with Bill Laswell, Steve Gorn, Laurie Anderson, Pete Calandra, Tom Davis, and Gigi among others. He performed on Broadway for the musical Bombay Dreams and at venues throughout the world.Along with his wife Mary Buchen, he designs interactive musical instruments for science museums, public plazas, and children’s museums throughout the world. They reside in the East Village of New York City.

Lecture: In the Realm of the Goddess

For most of the human experience, the image of the creative force that animates the universe was feminine, an archetype was expressed in art as the Goddess. But the advent of new religions, including Christianity, ushered in the dominant male paradigm in cultures around the world. 

How and why did this happen? Come and discover through Hana Marritz's lecture, featuring colorful images showing how the journey of the goddess has unfolded in art over time. 

Hana Marritz is a lifelong artist and teacher. She taught high school art in the Bronx and now lives and works as an artist in Equinunk, PA. She works in collage and chicken wire sculptures and exhibits at the Eva Gallery. She an award-winning author/photographer of seven children’s books and is a working shamanic practitioner.
