Classical minimalist Philip Glass recently celebrated his 75th birthday.  The Sound of the City Blog at the Village Voice is honoring him by showcasing collaborations that feature his work, including this very cool one from Atlanta’s dj BC (a.k.a.

Pat Ferrise grew up loving ”the punk rock” and “new wave.” His years at one of the nation’s top college radio stations ultimately led him to a 15-year run as music director of alternative music icon WHFS Washington/Baltimore. Rolling Stone magazine named him of the most influential programmers of the 90s. He’s recorded two albums under the moniker Trampoline for the now defunct SpinArt label. He lives in Baltimore and takes no credit for writing this bio.
