Music Does Not Exist

Music unlike Art produces nothing concrete. I accept that it creates MP3s, CDs and other forms of re-playable media. What I mean is that Art mostly produces some kind of object, a painting, a carving, a sculpture. Musical creations disappear the moment they are heard. Musical creations are functions of mind's ability to make connections between past, present and future in the form of sounds. But what exists is only those vibrations which exist at that moment. In this sense music only exists, if read more

We often talk about people blissfully living in their 'bubble'. We talk about politicians living in their bubble of reality not necessarily aware of the lives of others. We run the risk of becoming entrained by our own 'bubbles'. Before you choose to believe that you don't have your own bubble just be aware that the likes of Google and Facebook know about your bubble. They like to feed your 'bubble'. They think they know what you like. read more

Mastering Chaos® A Leadership Workshop - by Rod Paton and Andrew Hodges

Musical leadership is leading 'in the moment', guiding multiple strands of simultaneous activities. Leadership doesn't get more complex than this. Musicians must lead themselves and their 'team', i.e. their band or orchestra, in a variety of different styles to suit the piece. The leadership style must 'fit', relate to what is happening now, with a sense of what's coming towards them, hopefully leading to the best outcome. read more
