Above the slick vinyl booths and vintage arcade games at Pete’s Diner now hang works of art by many lesser-known artists of the area—current and former homeless men and women of Greater Lafayette.

This past year, individuals familiar with homelessness documented their daily lives by snapping pictures with disposable cameras that were provided to them by a Purdue multimedia writing class.

Students wrote a variety of prompts to generate inspiration and met with the artists regularly to discuss the stories behind the photos.

Tones and Colors is a new piano album inspired by artwork. Liza Stepanova presents music by Bach, Martinu, and Gyorgy Ligeti among others. Ligeti's original idea had been to compose twelve Études, in two books of six each, ala Debussy, but the scope of his etudes grew...one of our favorites from this new collection is the Infinite Column etude that Ligeti composed. You can hear it on What's New.

WBAA's John Clare had a chance to speak with Liza Stepanova about her CAG album Tones and Colors.
