My goal is to be a cognoscenti in music, instructional design and journalistic excellence. I visualize these three disciplines in total congruence. They are the Zen of my work-life balance.
Journeying further along that path I meld my purpose with instinctual visionaries such as Jaron Lanier. Jaron Lanier is blessed with an innovative musical purpose that transcends much of what we understand about past and present state music. Thankfully he crafts that skill readily through the unique construction of musical instruments he invents which allows us to experience the deeper textures of music’s rich harmonic spectrum.
In a far reaching interview with Jaron Lanier about music in 1994 he expressed his understanding about the body and musical instruments. http://www.exhibitresearch.com/kevin/nyc/jaron/index.html
I believe the body is able to know much more than the mind, in terms of instantaneous action. And there will be some very somatic form of programming in the future. And I look to musical instruments as an inspiration as to what that will be like….
So, essentially, I think the way we look at in musical instruments today is what programming languages will look like tomorrow. Not the music, but the instruments….
