Hello there! Here are today's ears.
On the way to work in the car:
Pendulum - In Silico
At work on the computer:
Ben Folds - Not the Same (from This Reality Podcast)
Then, irresistibly drawn back to:
Radiohead - Reading coverage from BBC3 on iPlayer (twice)
Walk music, on phone:
Radiohead - In Rainbows
Then more from Reading:
On the way home in the car:
Radiohead - Best of
Beethoven - Piano Sonatas No.2, 26, 32 (Garrick Ohlsson, recommended by James Rhodes - an excellent choice I might say, especially Op.111 which is fantastic & very moving).
Then a bit later, more from Reading:
And, prompted by tweets from @5357311 and @PianoGeek
Webern - Variations for Piano
1. I had decided that after Reading I would stop constantly listening to Radiohead (you may have noticed that I've been working through their albums for a little while), and have a break. However, they've got inside my head and I can't get rid. I also have a load of really happy smiling memories from Sunday night, so they've become even better now! Hmmm! Might be another day or so before I can move on.
2. First met Webern in 2nd year at College. Couldn't make head nor tail of him. However, he's like olives. When I had my first olive I thought it was revolting, but after a couple of years of eating the little black & green things I decided I didn't mind them too much. 10 years later & I actually seek them out and enjoy them. Webern's a bit like that. Gone from WTF is that noise? to not unpleasant, and now, many years later, finally reached the stage where I actually listen & enjoy. He'll never be like Beethoven to me, but then olives will never be fillet steak either!
