I love working in cafes. I never really thought much about it until a few days ago when a baffled friend of mine asked why I was so into it. His assumption? That working in a cafe would be a distraction. A distraction? Dude, quite the opposite.

Dylan Mattingly by name. He's got a thing for Amelia Earhart, the famous pilot who disappeared 75 years ago near Howland Island in the Pacific. Inspired by the story of her last flight, Mattingly wrote a 40-minute work for chamber orchestra, "Atlas of Somewhere On the Way to Howland Island," as an homage to her and (forgive him the flight of words; he's just a kid) "for all those voyagers between horizons; for those -- past and present -- who have flown into storms, for those floating dreamscapes out beyond the curvature of the sunrise, for those that reach escape velocity, for when even your endless arms can't rearrange the constellations."

The second movement "Islanded in a Stream of Stars," about 22 minutes in length, aired on WNYC on June 7, 2012. It's from the orchestra's debut album Stream of Stars, which also presents two other works of Mattlingly's, "Six Night Sunrise" and "
