Studio One features segments on an art music composer and healthy eating costs

Some define “Art Music” as an innovative way to create sound using a variety of sources. Michael Wittgraf, music department chair, will discuss this process. “Art music has no regular beat, no regular chords, no melody, but it explores things such as flexibility, tone colors and unmeasured combination melodies,” he explains. Hear how he has integrated this style into his compositions.

Also on the show, healthy eating is a priority for many people, but so is sticking to a budget. Most say that wholesome food can cost more than convenience foods. The USDA’s recent changes to the “My Plate” guidelines may increase the cost for consumers up to 10 percent if followed correctly. Although some are concerned about having to spend more, other say a nutritious diet will reduce illness which could lead to a drop in doctor’s bills. Watch Studio One to learn how to have more green in your diet and your wallet.
