Is it true you once praised the work of rapper Eminem?

: I never listened to one of his performances, but I knew he was very famous and I knew the kind of propulsive, rhyme-driven, verbally athletic genre that rap was. At a conference for teachers, I was asked a question about the younger generation’s interest in poetry. My answer was that some popular genres had a metrical and rhyming energy and that this guy Eminem seemed to have sent a charge around the world. End of story, I thought. How wrong can you be? The Daily Telegraph reported something on the lines of “Nobel Laureate Commends Rapper Who Advocates Rape, Murder, etc.”

September 23, 2014 – Notation

For a brief moment, music notation is cool.

Losing the language. Does it matter?

If you can’t read music, you need mega-ears.

Where does sight reading come onto this?  Vivier in London.

Many reasons for music notation other than pure communication – political, business etc.

Notation is related to control of your material– if you know you want something, how do you communicate that?
