Ksanti in Text


Ksanti is involved in computer consultation (web design and webmaster services), teaching, and performing. All activities seek to create that space which allows for the expression and development of the person—the pause that allows the other's voice to be heard and to be responded to in peace.

The Woodward Corridor Musicians
Woodward Avenue stretches from downtown Detroit (beginning at the Detroit River) and terminates in Pontiac Michigan (home of the now defunct Pontiac Motor Division of General Motors). Woodward Avenue is the location for the famous "Woodward Cruise" each summer. Also along that "ribbon of highway" (to quote Woody Guthrie) live some very talented musicians who organize chamber concerts under the name The Woodward Corridor Musicians. Ksanti's R Stead has occasionally performed with them as part of the Rose Flute Ensemble of Ferndale, MI (9 Mile Road and Woodward Ave). R Stead also acts as the volunteer webmaster for the WCM.
R Stead, founder of Ksanti, is both a composer and performer. A sample of his eclectic style can be found at The Music of R Stead.
