Biology nerds have made proteins play Chopin-esque tunes

With the right computer program, proteins become pleasant music. There are many surprising analogies between proteins, the basic building blocks of life, and musical notation. These analogies can be used not only to help advance research but also to make the complexity of proteins accessible to the public. We’re computational biologists who believe that hearing the sound of life at the molecular level could help inspire people to learn more about biology and the computational sciences. While cre...

The Mistake Waltz: Watch the Hilarious Ballet by Legendary Choreographer Jerome Robbins

So often mistakes are the most memorable part of live performance. In Jerome Robbins’ The Concert (or The Perils of Everybody), they’re built in. The portion set to Chopin’s Waltz in E Minor, above, has earned the nickname The Mistake Waltz. It’s an anthology of screw ups that will be familiar to anyone who’s attended a few amateur ballet productions and school recitals. When the entire ensemble is meant to be traveling in the same direction or synchronizing swanlike gestures, the on...

Pomona native Alejandro Aranda looks to L.A. as the inspiration for his new Scarypoolparty EP

Pomona’s Alejandro Aranda continues his genre-bending streak in his upcoming four-song EP “Los Angeles,” whiich flows from R&B to soulful pop to hip-hop to a keyboard-driven tune that sounds like a classical ballad backed by a drum machine, “Each song varies in styles, but they all have heavy drums and very cinematic kinds of styles,” said Aranda, who first gained national attention after finishing in second-place on American Idol in 2019. Aranda, who performs as Scarypoolparty, announced the re...

Five overlooked Beethoven gems

Beethoven wrote an enormous quantity of music: nine symphonies, some fifty sonatas, seven concertos, sixteen string quartets, more than a hundred songs… the list goes on and on. It is almost inevitable that certain of these works have been relatively neglected by performers and the listening public alike. Here are a few overlooked gems. 1. Finale of Der glorreiche Augenblick (“The Glorious Moment”), op. 136 This cantata, written to celebrate the heads of Europe who had gathered for the Congress ...

Chopin’s Letters Show He Was Totally Gay, So Let’s Quit Pretending, Says Journalist

“Chopin’s Men, a two-hour radio programme that aired on Swiss public broadcaster SRF’s arts channel, argues that the composer’s letters have been at times deliberately mistranslated, rumours of affairs with women exaggerated, and hints at an apparent interest in ‘cottaging’ … simply ignored. The music journalist Moritz Weber, who started researching Chopin’s letters during the spring lockdown, said he discovered a ‘flood of declarations of love aimed at men’, sometimes direct in their erotic to...

Playing the opposite of what Brahms wrote

What might we learn from an oddity concerning the first movement of Brahms’s Violin Sonata No. 1 in G, op. 78, that has led many violin-piano duos either to ignore Brahms’s tempo markings or actually play the opposite of what he wrote?Brahms’s score is explicit. The basic tempo is Vivace ma non troppo (lively, but not overly so). Near the middle of this mostly lyrical movement, when the movement’s most agitated music begins, Brahms wrote più sostenuto (more sustained). Then, leading into the ope...

The rhythm of the night: How music can help insomnia

Even in sleep, we partake in the becoming of the world," to utter the echo in Czesław Miłosz's poem "A Magic Mountain." Lying awake at night, I have sometimes found myself turning this idea over in my head. Like millions of slumberless souls, I have suffered with regular bouts of insomnia, which, in my case, were triggered by overworking, psychological pressure, and obsessive thoughts. Insomniac sleep deprivation provoked in me a profound anxiety, shades of paranoia, and the promise of depressio...

Charlie Parker at 100

In his too short, too fast, too hard, too brilliant 34 years, Parker transformed an art form, no less than Mozart or Chopin or Gershwin did in their similarly brief time among us. Like those revolutionaries, Parker played his instrument – alto saxophone – with astonishing virtuosity. But Parker also did as much as anyone (and more than most) to forge a musical language, one that dominated 20th century jazz and continues to influence it in the 21st. – Chicago Tribune

“It might not be for you”

If you walk into a noisy bar and ask why they don’t have Chopin on the jukebox, they’re unlikely to accommodate you. The same is true if you go to a BBQ joint and insist on sushi. Most of the brands we truly care about stand for something. And the thing they stand for is unlikely to be, “whatever you want, we have it.” It’s also unlikely to be, “you can choose anyone and we’re anyone.” A meaningful specific can’t possibly please everyone. That’s the deal.
