SILVERTHORNE, Colo. (AP) — Simon Beck carefully plots his course before shuffling through a windswept snowfield high in the Rocky Mountains.

Beck, “Hyperspace” (Capitol Records)
We’ve heard Beck when he’s down. And we’ve heard Beck when he’s up. Now hear Beck go past up to something else. Cosmic? Celestial?
Various Artists, "Music Inspired by the Film Roma" (Sony Music Masterworks)
Beck, Patti Smith, Unkle, DJ Shadow and Billie Eilish are part of a large and diverse group performing songs inspired by Alfonso Cuaron's "Roma," resulting in an album that has plenty of good music but with few direct links to the film.
The film's soundtrack was based on songs played by Mexican radio stations in the 1970s, most by Mexican artists like Jose Jose and Javier Solis.
MACON, Ga. (AP) — Ceramics, glass blowing and metal fabrication will take place in a single building in Macon, and it will be open to the public.
Startup Studios, at 1055 Riverside Drive, will have its opening night Nov. 2 after the First Friday events downtown. People will be able to watch a ceramics artist and a glass artist perform their crafts.
FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) — Residents of a Massachusetts city are hoping to set a world record for the largest paper airplane.
The Revolving Museum of Fitchburg revealed a 64-foot-long (19.5-meter-long) plane at the Fitchburg Municipal Airport on Tuesday. There was no plan to fly the nearly 1-ton (0.9-metric ton) contraption.
Jennifer Warnes, "Another Time, Another Place" (BMG)
Even when major an-album-a-year bands and singers are rare, the 17 since Jennifer Warnes' last record, "The Well," are far too lengthy an interval, making her return that much sweeter.
Still further back is her career peak — her tremendous 1987 collection of Leonard Cohen songs, "Famous Blue Raincoat" — and her soundtrack hits from "Norma Rae," ''An Officer and a Gentleman" and "Dirty Dancing."
Beck, "Colors" (Capitol Records)
Singer-songwriter Beck has never been very good at hiding how he's feeling. If you made it through the defeated melancholy of "Sea Change" without wanting to hurl yourself off a cliff, congrats. But the thing is, Beck doesn't hide when he's happy either.
NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — A new public art project called "ARTventures: Comeback Kitchen Table" will explore the role the kitchen table plays in family life and modern culture by creating 10 kitchen table and chair environments to be set up around downtown Nashua.
