Dance Genesis Canyon Natural History Museum, London

There is a curious thrill about being in a museum after hours, a thrill compounded by the mysterious arrival of 38 young people in pyjamas. Stephan Koplowitz, whose Genesis Canyon opened this year's Dance Umbrella festival last Saturday, makes full use of the grandeur and mystery of the Natural History Museum's main hall. The dancers gradually infiltrate the darkened hall and begin to carpet the stairs with their bodies. All wear loose clothes made of a primitive pleated metallic fabric. In selecting this extraordinary material, Craig Givens has allowed the dancers to create a chameleon-like effect as they move in and out of coloured light; orange when they rise, sea-green when they hug the treads of the stairs like a long slick of primal soup.

Talking tags: the perfect icebreaker for nerds

Network: In the beginning, there was Genesis

... and in a few years, there will be a revolutionary method of displaying information on a screen. By Niall McKay

Pop: Great covers 9. Marillion: Brave

In the beginning, Marillion went in for classic progressive sleeve design - clever-clever titles, visual puns, ersatz surrealism and a logo begging to be traced by 14-year-old boys. But when singer Fish left, they had to confront one of rock's trickier marketing problems: how to keep your loyal audience on-side while signalling to everyone else that your days of re-writing the early Genesis songbook are truly over?

Health: Crazy sounds to soothe a garbled world: It sounds far-fetched, but the strangulated tones of distorted rock music can help to heal disturbed and autistic children. Jerome Burne explains how

The greatest fans of middle-of-the-road chart-toppers such as Enya and Fleetwood Mac would hesitate before claiming medical benefits from listening to their CDs. But such mellow sounds are at the heart of a radical new technique that claims dramatic improvements in the speech and behaviour of autistic and other disturbed children.

Gabriel snag

Cutting-edge CD from the star with no name

THIS image of Prince (or 'Symbol', as he now likes to be known only by a self-designed sign rather than by name) is taken from the latest merger of technology and music - a combination of music, graphics and video on a compact disc.

Travel: A day trip to the edge of Africa - Resting up in Dakar after a wild dash across the desert, Jeremy Hart met Peter Gabriel, Youssou N'Dour and a New Yorker looking for his roots

Not even my mother would have washed that T-shirt. For the better part of a week it had clung to my torso like the smell of chips to a cashmere sweater; it had crossed three frontiers, travelled the Sahara desert and finally come to rest in a lifeless lump at the bottom of a five- star rubbish bin in a Senegalese hotel room.
