    To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Satie and his Gymnopédies yet. I find that the visuals compliment his music perfectly in the video below:



    This part specifically is probably the most well-known:




    Grieg's In the Hall of the Mountain King is fun and imaginative:




    Massenet's Meditation is beautiful:




    The video above reminded me of the soundtrack to The Fountain, which you shouldn't cheat yourself of:

    ‘Many novelties have come from America. The most startling of these, a thing without precedent, is a mass of undignified poor. They do not love one another because they do not love themselves.’

    ‘And we will have made great strides in equality,
    when few have too much and fewer too little.’.

    I'm in love with Chopin *_*

    I like chopin's dark stuff...his light stuff reminds me of vivaldi...just too soft and gentle to have any real effect. his dark stuff mirrors the ups and downs of life with gravity where as his light stuff is just like looking at a really fancy cake or something. I guess it could be good at the right moment but his emo phase just casts a shadow over it. the beauty of chopin's emo phase is that very few do it like him....he doesn't strike sound like mozart but he lets it sneak up on you until you're crying.

    Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.

    I don’t often listen to the classical music, but I have my favourites.

    I like Chopin best. There is heaviness in his music. I think that he’s emotional, but the music is more about trying to hide emotions than about expressing them.




    I like also Debussy

    Talking about Hector Berlioz, you should listen to his Requiem.

    It's (as you'd expect from Hec) monumental: four massive brass bands and choirs at each point of the compass. When it was first performed, half the audience thought the end of the world had come.

    The end of the Damnation of Faust is impressive, too; Mephistopheles and Faust hurtle headlong into the abyss of hell:
