Ears to Hear


A good friend of mine sent these lectures my way, and now I’m passing them on to you. Ken Myers (author of the fabulous All God’s Children and Blue Suede Shoes) does a smashing job here: over the course of four lectures, he highlights the importance of music in our culture, examines the objective nature of music, and lays the groundwork for further discussion of “the possibilities of musical meaning.”

This is good stuff, folks. I recommend you take time to watch the videos, but MP3s are available as well. The first lecture is featured above – you can find the rest here.

Also, a warning to my fellow bibliophiles: you’re reading list may explode when Myers starts dispensing book recommendations. Arm yourself with a notepad.
