Detroit techno pioneers come full circle with joint Belleville Three project

- Buy Photo. The drive down I-94 from Belleville to downtown Detroit might take you about 30 minutes. For techno fans, it’s a trip deep into music history — and now it's come full circle as three hometown pioneers take on an ambitious new challenge. By now, the story of Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson is likely familiar: teenage friends growing up in Belleville just west of Detroit, fascinated by the machine music of Kraftwerk and the funk of George Clinton, going on to invent and popularize techno music in the 1980s

At Impulse Festival, artists paint in time to the music

- Alex Danielson said she usually paints human figures, but on Saturday her canvas was filled with abstract versions of faces. Blame it on the music. "The mood changes in the music, which changes the colors I want to use and the overall feelings I want to get," said Danielson, 16, from Logan. She was one of seven painters sharing the stage at Salt Lake City's Gallivan Center with young musicians, as part of the second annual IMPULSE Festival, which showcases visual artists and musicians performing side by side

Rocker Gregg Allman dies at age 69; sang and lived the blues

- SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Gregg Allman, a survivor of tragedy, knew the blues musically and in a painfully personal way. Raised by a single mother after his father was shot to death, he idolized his guitar-slinging older brother Duane and became his musical partner. They formed the nucleus of The Allman Brothers Band, which helped define the Southern rock sound of the 1970s

The roadhouse, the back porch, the juke joint, the church, the farm, the highway. It was in the weary, determined drawl of his voice, rising to a sustained, honeyed ache or rasping with stubborn gumption.
