Some nice chewy, crunchy posts for you all

Okay, so now that I have readers, I figured I might as well link to a few(!) Posts of Significance that I thought you people might like to run your eyeballs over. Here you go:

Got stuff done plus a neat new scale mode

“Honey, I can’t speak to you in English.”

Inspiration and what you can accomplish away from your instrument

Science and art are one and the same and Monkeywork and the Big Stuff — science, art, and talent

It takes hunger — but hunger for what?

The Riemann hypothesis, prime numbers, and other instances of theorems going pear-shaped (Don’t click on this unless you really, really like math.)

Literary lessons that I use to write music — how to approach musical form from the outside

Another literary lesson for writing music

I don’t care whose music you hate.

Asking the wrong question (In other words, can improvisation be taught?)

“Why can’t you just do a cover?” — classical music and participatory culture

When is one ready to be creative?

Long to leave, longer to return: lessons for music teachers from a survivor

Geeks, Clem Kadiddlehopper, and Steve Jobs: Lessons for Music Insiders from the World of Technology

More on this left-handed string playing business (Yallz have no idea how controversial this is. In the 21st century. It’s nuts.)

The lesson to be learned here is that I will clearly pound the daylights out of any keyboard you put in front of me, laptop or piano.

I’ll see what else I can scare up.
