I CANT SOTP LAUGHING THIS IS THE BEST BLOG
Being in so many music classes has gotten me very nervous about discussing “art” music candidly. I feel like the way that music was analyzed didn’t help me understand it. Granted, I did drop out of school, and I did fail 1/2 of my comprehensive exams for my music major, but Jesus.
I really felt that the only time I knew what I was talking about was during a presentation on Morton Feldman’s Rothko Chapel. I found an article that spoke about the theory behind it and I thought it gave a completely engaging interpretation of the entire piece. Yes, of course the piece is based off of the artwork of Mark Rothko, but more than that, it explains the overarching concept of stasis in the piece. Each section is clearly delineated, each representing stasis in a different way while still being a coherent whole.
The 5th section is probably the most beautiful out of context. I’d talk about it but I’m shy.
Lava Mountains photos by Lusika33
Do you ever see pictures of lava and think: “that doesn’t look so hot, what’s the big deal”? A group of intrepid Russian photographers must have had the same idea when they ventured to the volcanic complex of Tolbachnik on the Kamchatka Peninsula. Consisting of two active volcanoes Plosky and Ostry, the pair put on some impressive fireworks when it recently erupted in November, 2012, with the lava flow overtaking buildings 4 kilometers away. While some of the pictures are mesmerizing in their display of the raw plasma that burns inside the furnace of the earth, I was more amazed (and quite frankly, a little concerned) with the nonchalant photographers setting up cameras mere meters away from the molten swarm. The flickering lights of the cooling magma resembles a city at night and almost seems romantic in an imminent fiery destruction-type way.
