Music 02

Music for today’s morning is

“mon coeur s’ouvre à ta voix” from the opera “Samson et Dalila” by Camille Saint-Saens. Interpretation for flute and orchestra.

Because the sun shone through my open window, the trees outside swayed in the soft breeze and the melody (as well as the meaning) felt just right.

 

And the second song is

Ever Dream by Nightwish

because Tarja Turunen’s beautiful voice at a volume just below my pain threshold proved to be an adequate acoustic shield for an environment like an underground train packed beyond capacity and a video games convention full of people. (But the lyrics, as I (mis)understand them, are quite nonsensical. I have to look them up sometime to stop wondering what she is singing).

I am a psychology student from Germany with diagnosed asperger's syndrome. I love 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
