One O' As Brian Clancy readies his brass in- strument to his lips, he takes one final glance at his parents in the audience and a deep breath before he begins to play. While tapping his foot to the rhythm, he emits from the saxophone a smooth, mel- low tone than leaps suddenly to an upbeat jive. Other instruments join in - trumpets, trombones and a few percussions - to create an adjoining sea of melodies. This is the One O'Clock Lab Band. "I started playing when I was around 11," Clancy said after rehearsal. He explained that it was around that time that he bought his neighbor's saxophone Since then Clancy's musical talents have expanded to include and incorporate the flute, drums and clarinet as well. His passion for music and jazz led Clancy to UNT's College of Music, which has built and continues to main- tain an undisputedly impressive national reputation. Now they will build their international notoriety in a culturally dif- ferent part of the world. By Nasreen Iqbal, Staff Wri...

A fusion of old and new With a long list of outstanding accomplish- ments, alumni and faculty, an invitation to the 2009 World Saxophone Congress seems like it would be in the cards for the band. An extra perk not expected, however, is that the bands flight and lodging expenses are being fully funded by the Mahidol University's College of Music and corporate sponsor, ThaiBev, accord- ing to Scott "It's the best in Thailand," Scott said of the Imperial Queens Park Hotel where the One O'Clock Lab Band will be staying during the duration of their trip. While the mention of Jazz might bring an image of a bustling New Orleans atmosphere to mind rather than a booming indus- trial city in South East Asia, Bangkok Thailand has a cherished jazz scene of its own perhaps not quite as popular as the one in Louisiana. Thailand's King Bhumibol Adulyadej is an avid and passionate saxophonist himself who plays with local Thai musicians every weekend and composes his own music. About five years ago,...

y Songs from 1 the Quetzal By Courtney Roberts, Managing Editor The famous long-tailed quetzals of Central America are known for their iridescent green bodies, red breasts and their roles in Mesoamerican mythologies. One Mayan leg- end claims that the quetzal used to sing beauti- fully before the Spanish conquest, but has been silent ever since. However, legend predicts that it will sing once again when the land is truly free. Although the bird might not survive for very long here in Denton, its music will through the instruments and vocals of Mariachi Quetzal . Not just an average band Formed in the late summer of 2008 in Denton, Mariachi Quetzal is composed of accomplished vocalists and instrumentalists from various backgrounds, all of whom are stu- dents or alumni of the UNT Col lege of Music. "Most of us met each other at UNT. We were part of the UNT Mariachi, which was called Mariachi Aguilas," said James Kerr, a UNT alumnus and trumpet player in the band. "From there, we had s...

we formed a group out of that." Mariachi is a type of folk music genre from Mexico and usually consists of at least three vio- lins, two trumpets, one Spanish classical guitar, one vihuela (a high-pitched, five-string guitar), one guitarrón (a small bass guitar) and occasion- ally a harp. "Sometimes you'll see an accordion or a harp," Kerr said. "The harp, which is smaller than what most people think about, actually used to be the base instrument." Sarah Knuth, a UNT alumna and violin player, said that mariachi groups will also add percussion instruments, congas or even cowbells. "It's grown to encompass a lot of other influences from not only Latin America at large but also sometimes English songs too," Knuth said. Mariachi groups also have to know a lot of songs, which doesn't mean five or six. "With mariachi, there are like 300 songs that we have to know," Kerr said. "We almost never repeat songs on a list and there are so many popular songs. We've been thinking about com- posing...

In the eye of the artist / Story and photos by Augusta Liddic -- /¿J J Natalie's Hookah Lounge We're here to serve you 940-591-6061 233 W. Hickory, Denton www. my space, com/nataliescafe From an artist finding his or her identity to the reevaluation of his or her artwork, these underlying themes run deep throughout the fea- tured artists work in the 2009 College of Visual Arts and Design graduate student exhibition titled "Recovery and Reinvention." Victoria Decuir, assistant director for the UNT Art Gallery and curator of the exhibit "Recovery and Reinvention," recognized themes emerging as she looked through the works of the artists. She chose which artists and which works by the particular artists she thought would make an interesting and cohesive exhibition. The exhibit, which features a variety of media, includes works by Julie Barnofski, Bernardo Cantu, Mariko Frost, Bethany Gouldin, Karen Flamilton, Tom Leininger, Murielle White and Sarah Williams.

Recovery The idea of recovery evolved in a quite literal sense and in a more abstract and conceptual way as well, said Decuir. The work of ceramic artist Karen Hamilton deals with a series of surger- ies that she had undergone throughout the years. Her response to the surgeries was manifested in her ceramic works that illustrates her emotional and phys- ical recovery from the surgeries. The theme of recovery in the works of photographer Tom Leininger and painter Murielle White is addressed in a conceptual manner. Both are dealing with the recovery of their ethnic and cultural background. White is a French artist working in the United States and Leininger is from Pennsylvania but currently residing in Texas. Through her initiation of a multi- cultural life, White, who is interested in cartography, incorporates map- ping into her work in a literal sense with streets and cities, but also in a metaphorical sense that represents her understanding of her cultural where- abouts by placing ...

art supplies. Thousands of dollars invested into her paint- ings. Then she remembers the total freedom she has when she paints. She gets to do whatever she wants and has so much control over what she does. Then she said that she would never regret becoming an art student "It felt like the right thing to do," Frost said. "I've thought for a long time about my thoughts and feelings in terms of imagery, so in that way it was kind of natural a progression." Over the years, she has been influenced by her life expe- riences, emotions and her travels around the world, all of which have been often directly reflected in her artwork. Frost said science fiction has influenced her style and her work as well. She has read science fiction her whole life and watched T. V. shows. Most recently she has been par- ticularly interested in the show Battlestar Galactica. "In a way I think of my art like movies," Frost said. "I think movies are in a lot of ways the paintings of today. I like the control I...

(500) Days of Summer by kip mooney contributing writer Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love. Girl doesn't. This is the tagline for director Marc Webb's offbeat romantic comedy "(500) Days of Summer" about a woman who spurns the existence of true love and a young man who falls in love with her. In an excerpt from a recent interview, the stars of the film, Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, discussed their ideas on love and confronting clichés head on. Q: So the movie seems to be a harking back to the era of Cameron Crowe and Woody Allen comed ies that rely more on heart than surrealism or gross-out gags. Was it a welcome change of pace for you two to do something so different? Zooey: Yeah, definitely. Joseph: Yeah. My favorite kinds of comedies are the ones where it's not necessarily from a punch line or from some gags. Zooey: Yeah, agreed. My favorite movies are definitely more along the Woody Allen-Cameron Crowe lines than the gross-out comedies. Joseph: Uh-huh. Zooey: And I ha...

Zooey: Yeah, exactly. That's the way we communicate with others is partially like our taste. Q: Joseph, what made you decide to do more independent work after "10 Things I Hate About You"? Joseph: Well, for me, I actually don't really make such a distinction between independent work and studio work or whatever. You can put things in a lot of different categories, but what's important to me is if there is a good script. Is there a cool filmmaker that I connect with? Who else am I going to be working with? That's what matters to me. "500 Days" is a perfect example. I mean, it's kind of an indie movie, but it was actually produced by Fox Searchlight. What matters is the people who are making the movie. Q: What clichés do you think "(500) Days of Summer" avoids? you just know and then you start becoming obscure. Q: There is something of an exaggerated realm in this movie. How do you keep your characters grounded, keeping them from being too naive and love-drunk or too much of a cold wit...

SUMMER SHORTS I drink, therefore I am (gaining weight) A recent study found that about 37 per- cent of our total daily liquid calories come from sugar-sweetened drinks. To add insult to injury, those sugary beverages have a bigger impact on our waistlines than anything else we consume. While certain kinds of alcohol may be beneficial — like red wine, which helps reduce the risk of heart disease when consumed in moderation — keep in mind alcohol stimulates the appetite (which explains why every fast food drive-through is packed when the bars empty at 2 a.m.) Also, the body cannot store the calories in alcoholic drinks so the body's fat-burning process cor es to a screeching halt until the alcohol is processed — about one hour per drink. A sheepish decline A team of research- ers in the Scottish island Hirta found that sheep are shrinking. "The decrease in body size was due to a reduction in growth rates caused, in part, by the changing climate," said Tim Coulson of Imperial College L...

Beer Nirvana Story and photos by Andrew McLemore For those looking to broaden their beer horizons and challenge outdated notions about the drink of kings and paupers alike, this is for you. Beyond the confines of corporations able to pay for the sponsorship of the Dallas Cowboys or women who grace the cover of Maxim magazine, there lies a world of delicious beers that don't need bikini-clad babes or sports stars to be appealing. This is about those beers. Once discovered, the world of modern brewing can be overwhelming, the variety of styles, choices and prices making it difficult to know the difference between the posers and the real thing. Which is why our resident beer snob decided to choose a selection of his favorites to help young beer padawans across Denton find enlightenment on the path to micro-brewed Nirvana. Good luck and Godspeed. Old Rasputin Russian imperial Stout North Coast Brewing Company ABV: 9 % Availability: Midway Mart Price: $10 / 4-pack Malty, chocolatey and o...

Hoegaarden Brouwerij van Hoegaarden ABV: 4.9 % Availability: Midway Mart, Metzler's Food and Beverage Price: $10 / 6-pack Wheat beers are ubiquitous these days with new examples of the style sold by every major brewery, though few of them are made with any subtlety or depth of flavor (I'm looking at you Shock Top). Belgians brew some of the best on earth, which is why I selected Hoegaarden, also the only Belgian-made beer on this list — there would be more, but they aren't easy to come by. Hoegaarden is a masterful example of a wheat- thick beer: a pale, cloudy body with a bready smell and a citrusy taste with slight carbonation and a whole lot of coriander. It's slightly bitter on the aftertaste, but Hoegaarden is still my preferred drink on hot, summer days.
