With all the fuss over Radiohead’s new “In Rainbows” album, with its pay-what-you-want downloading policy in the fall, and its CD version topping the charts last week, fans of the band might miss another significant milestone for the group, or at least for one of its players. On Wednesday and Thursday the innovative, genre-mixing Wordless Music series will present the first American performance of “Popcorn Superhet Receiver,” a 2005 string orchestra work by Jonny Greenwood, Radiohead’s lead guitarist, on a program with music by John Adams and Gavin Bryars.
The World of Funk
Along with R&B, soul and hip-hop, funk is one of the most enduring forms of popular music to emerge from the Black American community. Funk made its way to the forefront in the
early 1970s and has influenced many other genres ever since. Take electronic sampling, for example, the backbone of so much pop music nowadays. Funk is the most sampled genre of any.

A dialogue (sometimes spelled dialog) is a reciprocal conversation between two or more entities. The etymological origins of the word (in Greek διά(diá,through) + λόγος(logos,word,speech) concepts like flowing-through meaning) do not necessarily convey the way in which people have come to use the word, with some confusion between the prefix διά-(diá-,through) and the prefix δι-(di-, two) leading to the assumption that a dialogue is necessarily between only two parties.
Literary and philosophical genreWhen reported or imitated in writing, "dialogue" labels a form of literature used by the Greeks and Indians for purposes of rhetorical entertainment and instruction. This form has scarcely been modified since the days of its invention.
