    Ep. 95: How is music used in Bible translation? With SIL and Wycliffe Bible Translators’ Trevor Schuh

    SIL is a global, faith-based nonprofit that works with local communities around the world to develop language solutions that expand possibilities for a better life. Art is a form of communication, and SIL & Wycliffe Bible Translators recognize the value of communicating in the ways most familiar to individual communities. They want people to comprehend the Bible and worship in the language that is most natural to them, that speaks most to them. Whether they're an artist or not, there is a music that most resonates with them. Artistic communication is especially integral in oral tradition cultures that have no written language.

    Ep. 93: What happens when you combine space exploration & music? Bonus: The first space-earth duet! with Laurie Orth

    Musician and space enthusiast Laurie Orth discovered the answer to this question serendipitously! Following her own passions and her students' interests led Laurie to combine two STEAM disciplines, space exploration and music. The result produced learning greater than the sum of its parts, and blasted doors wide open to a new universe of connections and opportunities. Laurie shares some of her favorite resources, and discusses all things music-and-space – including what musical instruments are in the International Space Station, and what musician-astronauts play them.

    Ep. 91: What music do the sounds of ice and glaciers make? With Charles Van Kirk

    Ep. 91: What music do the sounds of ice and glaciers make? With Charles Van Kirk

    A sonic exploration of the Vatnajökull Glacier in Iceland resulted in a collection of glacial found sounds. These captured sounds were then used to create a musical tribute to glaciers, and have also been made available to others to use. Sonic explorer, composer, and audio engineer Charles Van Kirk says, "There is a huge sense of urgency to make some kind of artistic tribute to these glaciers, now before they totally recede away."

    Ep. 90: Glee, Ryan Murphy, and innovation in music education; with Beth Slusher

    Concerns over national budget cuts for the arts in public schools led to Give a Note’s formation by Ryan Murphy, Glee, and 20th Century Fox. Give a Note (GAN) recognizes and boosts music educators utilizing especially innovative strategies to engage students and benefit their communities outside traditional music curriculum. GAN’s initiatives advance programs that attract students not typically enrolled in music classes; make music education applicable to real world settings; and are sustainable and replicable in other school settings.
