Austin singer-songwriter Michael Fracasso brings a heady mix of tunes and performances on this set produced by Charlie Sexton. Fracasso's voice combines the more boyish elements of Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison, and his knack for the well-turned phrase makes the inclusion of his lyrics in the CD booklet a welcome bonus indeed

Unlike its two predecessors, World in a Drop of Water is Fracasso's first album without holdover material from his New York days. As such, it captures a fully matured artist, resulting in the songwriter's most complete and colorful work to date. More importantly, whereas the first two albums sound a little like folk records with pop and rock elements retrofitted on them, World has a rare appeal in that it seamlessly combines qualities that most pop records neglect and most pure singer-songwriters lack. But people are now discovering, & is Michael Fracasso, he's a great songwriter, we should go check him ou. That sort of thing is starting to happen to me for the first time. Unlike its two predecessors, World in a Drop of Water is Fracasso's first album without holdover material from his New York days. As such, it captures a fully matured artist.

Michael Fracasso takes the lessons of his influences-the lyrical density of Dylan and the vocal flights of Buddy Holly and Lefty Frizzell-and shapes them with ambitious, Beatlesque arrangements. Much of the success of Fracasso's third recording owes to producer Charlie Sexton, who layers these songs of bittersweet optimism with so many guitars they attain the character of small symphonies, the musical equivalent of Fracasso's lyrics, the discovery of whole worlds in the smallest moments. This newest venture by Fracasso is his best work yet. It's a much more pop oriented album than his last one "When I Lived In The Wild". But you still get the angelic voice of one of today's best folk singers. He's also turning into one of our best songwriters. Especially OUR FINEST HOUR and the title track WORLD IN A DROP OF WATER, with their Sg. epper like orchestral backing.

Michael Fracasso is a singer-songwriter based in Austin, Texas. His music spans country and rock as he sings in a high tenor that evokes the "high lonesome" sound of early country. He was a regular performer at the Cornelia Street Cafe's Monday night songwriter workshops in the early 1980s. He has released six albums/CDs in the past four decades. A Pocketful of Rain, Retrospective, Back To Oklahoma, World in a Drop Of Water, When I Lived in the Wild and Love & Trust Tribute to Woody Guthrie ensemble

Hold your breath," says inventor Tom Zimmerman. This is the world without plankton. These tiny organisms produce two-thirds of our planet's oxygen - without them, life as we know it wouldn't exist. In this talk and tech demo, Zimmerman and cell engineer Simone Bianco hook up a 3D microscope to a drop of water and take you scuba diving with plankton. Learn more about these mesmerizing creatures and get inspired to protect them against ongoing threats from climate change.

You’ve heard about having the world at your doorstep, but what about having the world in a water droplet? Serbian photographer Dusan Stojancevic has managed to do just that – and it’s not by using Photoshop. Fifteen years ago, the long-time traveller decided to capture familiar tourist sites in an unprecedented way. I wanted to do something different, he said. I was trying to think about how to do something inventive.
