Air (Virgin) America

Here’s just a handful of what currently plays on the music section of the in-flight entertainment system of the relatively new airline Virgin America: an excerpt from Karlheinz Stockhausen‘s Stimmung, John Adams‘s Shaker Loops, a half dozen Sun Ra tracks, more than twice as many from Frank Zappa, two off Miles Davis‘s Bitches Brew (that is, according to the system’s touch-screen interface, B*****s Brew), a whole lotta Kronos (including “White Man Sleeps”), not to mention electronic fare like Underworld. Airspace is the place.
