It’s unfortunate that I had to chalk up most of my college musical training to a loss leader. Those who can’t…teach, and those who can’t and are really f$%kin’ bitter about it….become music instructors at NYU.

The glowing exception to this statement was Dr. Walter W. Reinhold(R.I.P.), who I had the privilege and honor to study under for 4 semester(ok, 5 I’m a shite student).

One of his best lectures was on the “Golden Ratio”. I can’t even begin to describe it, so just peep this wikipedia article:

The Golden ratio

Also, If 222 stunningly well written articles on the history of western art/music/culture sounds like your thing (and you’ve got $70 to burn) I HIGHLY recommend buying Reinhold’s Culture 4.0 CD. Culture 4.0

I’ve always been fond of mathmatics & take a very mathmatical view.

People think I’m nuts when I say that mathmatics is romantic, but I really do find it that way.

I’m very attracted to elegance of form and finding similarities in unsuspecting places, like how if you study the way that rush hour traffic forms on the highway, you find that it sort of resembles how sugar crystals form when your making rock candy.

So bear with me if a couple of my upcoming posts go a little pedantic and navel gazing, I promise all this stuff will tie together.
