Interesting possibilities here.  If music is active in many areas of the brain, it makes sense that it would potentially heal those areas also. -Lon


Conversations for Inquiring Minds's curator insight, May 2, 2015 12:27 PM

For the first time I understand why music helps students so well.  I know that playing piano literally saved my life growing up because I could dump all my feelings into the music.  

Although some of the conditions were unknown to me, the article kept my interest through it's analysis of the how the brain works with music and examples like Ravel and Freud.

How brass instruments work - Al Cannon

How brass instruments work - Al Cannon | My Music-Bits 'n Pieces | Scoop.it
What gives the trumpet its clarion ring and the tuba its gut shaking
oompah-pah? And what makes the trombone so jazzy? Al Cannon shows how
these answers lie not in the brass the instruments are made of, but in the journey that air takes from the musician’s lungs to the instrument’s bell.

LIVE SESSION: Bauhaus – “Hair of the Dog”

LIVE SESSION: Bauhaus – “Hair of the Dog”.

 

The start to Bauhaus’ excellent Mask album, “Hair of the Dog” takes the old cliché of having a nip of whatever was drunk the night before to cure ones ills and creates a basic but smart lyrical image out of it. Peter Murphy, backed by others in the band, delivers it well, quick and strong, though ironically this is counterbalanced by the mix which keeps him intentionally swathed in echo.

 

The music itself, meanwhile, shows how Bauhaus could create true post-punk work, incorporating the stripped-down energy of punk into newer, angular guises. A semi-shapeless, nails-on-chalkboard Daniel Ash guitar riff gets doubletracked before David J’s rumbling bass and Kevin Haskins’ pounding, beats-off drums steps firmly to the fore, where it stays. Ash’s guitar work lurks lower in the mix, a nice reversal of the usual roles, creating a fierce central riff that nervously screams away. Wrapping up with Murphy delivering an appropriate dog bark as the music grinds down, “Hair of the Dog” is Bauhaus at its most briskly effective.
