Music 01

Introducing this topic, I will use it as a short form of something diary-like.

I do not want to write about each mundane day in detail and I define feelings to a large extent by images or music so I will post the song I listen to repeatedly each day. I usually do not choose them consciously but just end up rewinding them again and again on my MP3-player. Sometimes it might be two songs but rarely more.

If I know why I keep on listening to this particular song on this particular day, I will add that as well – but sometimes I just don’t.

Today’s song is:

Bach’s Harpsichord Concerto No. 7

because it accompanied me on my first trip through the streets of London since I left in June and its energetic yet calming theme was a perfect match for my mood.

The second song for today is:

The theme from the film “Good Bye, Lenin!” by Yann Tiersen, Summer 78

because being alone in my room watching the light fade I felt somewhat anxious and alone but not really sad and this melody picked this quiet melancholy up very well.

I am a psychology student from Germany with diagnosed asperger's syndrome. I love painting & drawing, cats, good smells, things that have interesting surface textures, music and sweets; additionally, I like making macarons, reading, (macro) photography and neurosciences. I found a few quotes which I either like very much or which I think reflect something of my character: /// I understand the concept of humour. It may not be apparent, but I am often amused by human behaviour. - Seven of Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, 4.5 /// I have never understood why it should be necessary to become irrational in order to prove that you care, or indeed why it should be necessary to prove it at all. - Avon Kerr, Blake's Seven /// Science is a differential equation. Religion is a boundary condition. - Alan Turing, Letter to Robin Gandy, 1954 /// We can only see a short distance ahead, but we can see plenty there that needs to be done. - Alan Turing, Computing Machinery and Intelligence, 1950 /// Null magnum ingenium sine mixtura dementiae. - Seneca /// It's human nature to stretch, to go, to see, to understand. Exploration is not a choice, really; it's an imperative. - Michael Collins /// We're still fighting the battles of tomorrow with the weapons of yesterday. - Mahbub ul Haq, Human Development Index
