Preserved in stone, a set of ancient insect wings are “chirping” once again thanks to the work of entomologists
v.t.1211.89@gmail.com's curator insight, November 19, 10:00 PM
This was interesting to read. I've often wondered how scientists gather the information they need to know how dinosaurs sounded before the age of humans. The details I this article that are described by creating these sounds was breathtaking. Smithsonian is a cediblhke source because it is an actual museum with a publication with valid writers. I think music business professionals look to many sources like this to think outside of the box, so yes it is a reliable source on the SCIENCE of sound and how it is manipulated to achieve desired results.

Guy Garvey on the challenge of turning a collection of songs into a single piece of art.
papasukial@gmail.com's curator insight, November 17, 2019 11:37 AM
I have always been intrigued by artist, musician singers, dancers actors etc. The level of connection musicians and producers have to sound is very important. Having the ability to formulate conceptual sounds and well sequenced music though made to look easy is a very intricate process. Merging digital sound and natural sound seems to be what’s going to transcend sounds evolution. Most artist are sitting on an archive of music that can be diligently placed and formulated into whatever art form chose. I think it is ingenious to attempt to turn a collection of ones songs and condense to one summarized song. Cool.

BBC radio 4 is one of the most reliable resources. I find that articles like this that are accompanied by other content such as audio or video are more interesting and informative. Guy Garvey speaks on Pink Floyd and the sequences they adapted for their music. I think that all music industry professionals would get a sense of how other music industry professionals approach their work, respectively. Also, the reliability of the source is the voice of Guy Garvey himself, speaking on the titular subject.
