Philip Glass: Glassworks - Opening.
i love listening to minimalist classical music. it requires a lot of patience for the pay off, the sheer repetition can be overwhelming, but the nuances are constantly changing and then you are finally rewarded with the emotional release. this the root of modern electronic music, and without it, we wouldnt have the same sound we have today. every house song has about a minute long intro (every edm song has is 4 beats to the measure, 32 bar intro, so 128 beats. house is usually 120-128 bpm, so 128/120 x 60 = 64 seconds). Dubstep usually has a drop around 54 seconds, (128/140 x 60) or some multiple of that. they all use the minimalist idea of building up through repetition and change and create the music we all love

The only tyrant I accept in this world is the still voice within.

No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
(Dead Poets Society, 1989)
