Kat Cole on the Power of Possible
"I was trying to think about where to start. This and i think good place to start is the dark side of gratitude. What does that expression mean to you. And where does it come from i. It's funny. I'm definitely known for leading with gratitude. So it's an ironic statement from someone like me. But i remember when my mom came to me when i was nine years old and said that's it i'm done. We're leaving and what she meant was we. Were leaving my dad. My dad was an is a very good man but at the time was an alcoholic and he had a wife and three daughters at home nine. Mi six and three. My two sisters and i had been in multiple car accidents with him drunk driving. By the time. I was nine. So i remember when my mom came to me and said we were leaving. I did not cry. I did not get upset. I looked at her at the age of nine and said what took you so long and it was because i was close enough to the bad to realize that even a scary decision was a better one than the alternative which was staying but as i got older and i talked to my mom more about that decision which turned out great for everyone. I asked her again. What took you so long. Because she started sharing with me how bad it was for. How long and and what it boiled down to was the dark side of gratitude that she was so grateful that she had a nice house and she was so grateful that we had gifts for the holidays and she was told by her family. And my father's family and her friends who were very poor much more so than us. We would be considered middle class at that stage that she was lucky to have all these things that she had and that that was a the alcoholism and the things that came along with it were a small price to pay for those other what appeared to be fortunes

"Put to put this like previously on safari. The thing that is like this is the u. r. l. bar here is the url that you are currently located at in the current version that changes depending on. Which had you have open. Where is that on the screen. So i i find that a little bit disorienting. It's like oh sometime. You are l. that i'm looking at is all the way on the right. If i'm looking at the right most tab. And if i'm looking at the left most habits all the way on the left like i don't i don't love that but overall the redesign i i would give it a thumbs up it's fine. I wasn't begging for a redesigned. But no i don't hate it. I'm trying to get used to the new tab view where the tab is also the address bar like getting used to. I'm kinda bummed. The pin tabs don't seem to be a thing anymore. I liked that how ever think type groups will actually give me better organization that way. I think i could get used to it. I would say that in the broader community is this is not loved. This design to to put it mildly. But i would say for me. I mostly fine of it because i really liked the type. Group feature think is really cool and actually helps me with organiz ation. I don't need to have fifty times open if i can collect them up into little groups instead. Yeah the only feature. i would request. Which doesn't seem to exist. Is i would love to have an ability to say. Open all new. Url's in a specific tab group the fact that there is like a local on sinked set of web pages. I find a little strange. And i wonder if that's going to cause user confusion with people when it's like wait. Oh i didn't know that. Because i can. I only have one device right now. I thought they everything would be saying. But it's not so it doesn't sink. Everything and i like the one thing i worry about. Is if the tab groups feature is received as unpopular because there is an inconsistent behavior. That people don't understand. And i like it's. It's always seemed weird to me. That safari doesn't sink any way it'd be a bit like aptx doesn't sink and people are like no. That's the way i want. Notes apps to work is that there's not supposed to sink only have this notes on this computer and it's like no no. That's just the way you've used computers for ten years. It's like that's not actually a better way to do. It always seemed to me. Like jerry state should universally sink just like your notes app state universally sinks just like your photos universally sink and i think people who argue for non universality sink in web browsers are just arguing out of the way. They have used something in the past. But i suspect that that contingent is quite strong and vocal. And it's why safaris default behavior is this split way where when you click a url and it opens a new page. It opens that page in. What is now effectively. This is your local copy of safari on this machine. And these tabs do not think only the tabs that you put in tab groups sink. And i just wish there was a way to tell the system either like hey this idea of local webpages is stupid and dumb and just synchronize everything or what i tried to do. Was i just created a tab. Group called tabs and i tried to find a way to tell the system like open all new. You are ells in this group. Yeah so that is just across machines. But as far as i could tell. There's no way to do that but even currently the way that it works. It's fine because if i am in a tab group all new tabs and new. url's open within that group and it's like it makes such an incredible difference about just a track of. What was i looking at for various research projects. It's i. I do not have the words to express how huge of a deal it is to not lose track of interesting webpages that i had opened somewhere or what happened. More often is like recreating on each machine. The same sort of groups of similar pages on topic and like it was just incredibly frustrating. And it's why. I talked on several shows ago about trying to figure out some way with shortcuts our system automation to like force this behavior by automatically book and opening tabs and it was just like it wasn't possible so sink tab groups was my holly lou moment in the keynote and i was so pumped and even on developer beta one works great. I'm so happy about it. There is one thing. I don't like about safari which is like hell. Basically every action is hit behind. That three dealt button. Yeah yeah. I don't know what they're trying to do there. That's very odd to me like looting the chevy button so like so many taps now to share something that that. That's like a an odd choice. The design brief their feels a little bit like someone thinks. Safari is much more space constrained than it really is. That's a little bit. What this design feels like. I think especially the. It's this way on the mac. Two i think is the most egregious pa. Yeah he's a good twenty inch monitors like it's fine. I can have one extra button there. But i agree with you. That is weird. And i've found myself being like i want to send this webpage to shortcut. Where the hell is okay. It's under here. And then like that's fine. I i can live with. I mean i can live with anything in exchange for tab group so many you know where the change design wise and actually safari has a history of radical changes and then some of walked back by the time the releases out I actually think safari is probably well see. The most design integration throughout the process. Yeah i wouldn't be surprised. I mean if. I had to pick one thing i would. I would probably say the tabs separate from the current url. Like that's the thing that i like the least but i also think i'll get used to it over time. It's just weird right now and i. I don't like the inconsistency because he's so new so different. Yeah one last thing i wanted to. What your thoughts are you tried. It yet is universal control. No no i haven't tried. Universal control laughed out loud at craig's totally ridiculous but also completely metal demo of i'm going to drag this file from my ipad into final cuts on the mac. I was like oh my god.

"A thanks to squarespace continued support of this show and all every laugh. Let me now tell you about the other universal feature that no joke even though people will be like oh focused modes one hundred percent. That's what gray wanted to talk about maps. Obviously he's super excited about all the new maps feature video game right. Oh my god. The new maps night mode is gorgeous. It looks like of. It's very interesting it looks. It looks like a video game. i'm intrigued. This isn't the feature i'm jay. I'm apple maps. Go again. Because i wanna see about that transit stuff. I think you totally should like. I will just say here. Quite legitimately apple maps has been the butt of jokes for years and i think partly because of that people have not properly perceived how improved apple maps has become like i think people are just really blind to their slow but very good incriminating of features. I think part of the reason is because you don't need the cab because google maps is also berlin. Yeah i'm not like. I'm not saying that google maps isn't good. It's just like i just think people underrate how good apple maps currently is. And they're thinking about that time. They gave it a try three years ago. And one of the things that i've noticed. Is that apple. maps has started doing some of the. I don't know quite what to call it. But like the google. Ai stuff where they mark off districts for. You aren't official places but like if you go. Scroll around london. The apple maps will mark off. Like what are the commercial districts in these various areas. Like where is the actual high street of this town and that's outlined in orange as like boys that stuff incredibly useful when you're visiting someplace that you're not familiar with to know. Oh all of this area is residential area and then this area is the commercial area. Where shops and things are like. What a pain in the ass. It was be to build that kind of feature in but it's so useful and it's also so subtle that you might not even really think about it. That like the app is kind of directing you to. If you're in the city these are the places that you probably want to go. You probably don't wanna just wander around randomly in a residential area. That has nothing commercial for you. Lots of little things and apps. I really love that. Their defaults three d satellite imagery is back like whenever you switch into satellite mode. Used to then have to manually turn on the three d. thing and host found it's super annoying because the three d. view is super helpful but it's their apple maps also added in a feature. Which is the. I want to know when i need to leave to reach a particular area by a certain time which they just hadn't had for quite a while says like great that's added in of like i need to be at the airport by eight. Am on wednesday like. When do i need to leave by. I would totally recommend giving it a little try. And i mean all of these things are personal but one area where i think apple maps really does do a good job as i've i've just found that they're always better at the audio cues for when you're driving. They're just better about telling you like. When do you need to turn telling you at the moment that you actually want to know. Whereas i found all of the other systems that i use they tell you like oh turn left ahead but not as reliably at like the moment when i actually want to know. Was it this left. Turn or is it the next left. Turn or this other stuff. So i would totally recommend giving a try if you happen in a while. Plus it just looks beautiful so good. It really is very well designed in a way that i think i haven't given it credit for it's gorgeous. I think the colors that they choose are a really beautiful. It's a great looking map especially if you're in the new map area like they've like this was like a joke on the show now but i. I really do think that the map stuff is super interesting. I want to hear more from egg frost. Like tell me more about these maps and they're super cool features and i do think that the map system is the key to their augmented reality. Future like they even again showed just a just a quick little demo of like oh by the way in maps now we can pinpoint your exact location by looking at the streets around you and we can draw an arrow monde the street of which way you need to go like g apple maps. What might be used understand. You want to see apple's our future like look at maps and it's gorgeous that anyway. That was not what i wanted to talk about specifically but like i just love the maps update and i think it's really good and i use the apple maps app a lot so i wanna get you a t shirt that says maps totally one hundred percent but okay. So here's the secret feature. I was saving to the end. The thing that i was legit. The most excited about the thing that. When i heard it i was like going to install this developer beta on every one of my machines except for the writing machines and it is synchronized tab groups in safari right. Having gone not tell you how excited i am about. This is even more than the focus. Modes. this is like the best feature for me this year. In the operating system focus modes people who've listened to the show you know how like years of frustration and like all of my anger around that very high but like sink. Tab groups beats it out and it makes such tangible difference to the way that i work i can barely express it to you and like when i got that developer beta on. I've got three different. Machines is like thing number one of his doing is like making the tab groups for different projects and synchronizing them together and trying to pull out all of the random tabs. I have on different machines as like what bliss what bliss to to finally have safari work. The way that. I think it should work with these tab- groups so thrilled. I love it. A super high level tab groups allows you to now collect up a selection of tabs. And you put them into what is effectively a group of folder. And they live in the sidebar..

You know one of our biggest goals going into queer eye was to be able to sit down in the home of somebody that had different political views as us and not be about political views and it just be about our humanity and finding a commonality because what it was four. It wasn't red and blue and democrat or republican. We're just people the thing that you can do to connect it's just to listen. I really find that. That was the key to success. Especially on first and second season going into georgia was just listening to people because especially in a. We started filming march or april twenty seventeen. You know the election had just happened. takeover everybody had unprinted anybody with an opposite opinion of them and nobody was listening to each other so to have five very liberal.

That's my positive tape won't potentially positive Did a bit of a negative spin on the judging you well yes we are. We are judging you for veal stories that that process. Buster Brendan my story. is a bit of a report about Why do parents waste most of the food? They get And I was immediately drawn to this because I do have to to a lot of cleaning up around the cages for the birds is that we have in hospital particularly the parents particularly the lodge parrots and lorikeets and and Cockatoos in hospital. pull at the moment and cheese do waste a lot of food so it was interesting to see whether there was a reason for it. was there You know could some.

So there's probably they probably not gonNA make it anyway. The parts of the tree that pull the pot but criticized bates can do a lot of damage quickly. The upshot of the study I was disappointed. I'm on trying to be as positive as I can about this as well Brennan but it looks like they've done on time. It was a multi year study where they looked at a number of possible aspects. They get a quite a few fancy graphs but the the conclusion is like countless parrots. DRP whole lot of stuff as they eating. I think the best theory going round is that Tom is that the The the there's an abundance of food on the trees Thi- will eight usually and And they say EH. Wise evolution narrowly occurred. I think is because It promotes forests that the birds. That have this. Behavior are more likely clete to cultivate trees in subsequent generations that support the population birds. That I'd all the the the fruit and the and broke the not and didn't have those trees in subsequent generations. They might not survive so I think there is an evolutionary advantage to being a MRI parrot on now that it's the best thing when they're in hospital that's all I'm going to say about that pregnant. Yes they missed the advice..
"117" Discussed on Band Ranting
"It's the values that produced Those things in other words. I think you could wipe marching band off the planet tomorrow but if you leave the value structure in place and what I mean by that is in our society. We value competition we value tangible and we value the visual correct. This is always stuff that people are super aware of And we could go into the wise of that for a long time but first suffice to say for now. Those are prevalent values in in our culture is competition tangible and visual and so all marching band is is a reflection of those values. And what's happened even with concert band is it's become a reflection of those certain expert too far into it that exactly what you're saying can be completely reverse marching band is reasoned that entertainment in music. Education has taken a marching band. Is that? There's no sophistication in marching band programs marching band directors. Who are serious as a crutch about this and think they're DCI. You know And are striving to be. I wish there never going to be Argue till the cows come home well marching band the form of art well so so is You know a spray can on the wall Downtown someplace with a kid behind it you know is a form of art Shouldn't we be striving for the betterment of the aesthetic sensibilities? Yes completely? What you said is true. Our values determined that. Where do people get their values from? School is a big place school because it's required public school in this country. Means that you know theoretically at least every single person has to go through it. Let's look at the sociology of it for a second. How does the band and the choir survive socially in high school? Let's say where did the term band nerds come from Well guess where marching band they wear those big acts with the feathers and military uniforms. Right choirs are now more socially acceptable to other to their peers in high school. Because they don't sing Serious music anymore. They now think pop music and dance there now glee which was a very popular program so they came into this so they are contributing to the problem is what I'm saying. So it works both ways and we have their their contributing to it and they've also succumb to it. How do we fight back? Do we fight back or do we. Just I mean maybe we do just trash all of it and live their culture go completely the hell right. Maybe we adopt mentality of well. Yeah there's a gorgeous old building with this magnificent architecture that could easily be renovated What the hell. Let's take a bulldozer. Mullet down to build a shopping mall right. That's the American way so It is definitely a huge complex problem but it seems to me that anybody who's a real musician out there. Maybe the people who are not good musicians in music education should start thinking about doing something else and maybe really good musicians should stand up and kick and scream about this. Yeah well if I could say one more thing here as I'm reflecting on all the things we've talked about today in this argument I I would summarize my opposition As follows I would submit that the things about Western Art music that the author of that post found colonial or elitist or disenfranchising. Oppressive are all extra musical things. Meaning it has nothing to do with the sound itself. Exactly right if they're all things are That can be said about any music. Any culture on the earth. Like for instance you. Can you fit into very easily and powerfully make an argument that Wagner was antisemitic and that he was eurocentric in that he had a an attitude reflected in a lot of these statements wagner music is not anti-semitic and that's a that's a somewhat controversial thing to say but the music is where you're going? Yeah the music itself if we can go back for a second to the fundamentals here take a second to understand that as human beings. I think it's like sixty percent of your the part of your brain that deals with sensory observation your five senses the Party of brain that collects the data from your five senses. Something like sixty percent of the. The neurons are dedicated to your vision so we tend to without even realizing it Value the visual over the auditory all the time. And so. That's I think what creates part of the problem here is that you have to seek as if you really want to understand this stuff you have to seek to go beyond the visual. You have to seek to just listen to sound which is why I think the practice of of music making a so powerful in terms of being in the moment you have to just pay attention to the sound and if if you understand the basics of the overtone series where all of Western Art Music Wham comes from is a simple development from this phenomenon in nature to call the overtone series whereby when you think you're hearing one pitcher actually hearing multiple pitches in those pitches or a related by a pattern and all western to each other exactly and all Western art. Music has really been. You can make a very strong argument that the development of Western harmony is essentially just an assimilation of more and more notes that the overtone series and you can make an argument. That melody is strongly rooted in the overtone series and What what what is racist about that? What is Eurocentric about? Yeah what you're saying. It's a pure form of expression. There is no language attached to it. There's no historical Anything attached to it. There is no It is impossible as you and I know. And every good musicians to verbalize the power of it and what it does to us. We don't use words. It is a language its own language and it uses note and overtones and anybody who wants to put a political correctness on it or An ethnic expectation on any of those kinds of things is stretching their own intellect into something that is or up in and of itself does not have any of those kind of patients to it. Exactly you're imposing your experience. You're imposing your intellect. You're imposing something. Extra musical you're imposing something that is not sound onto the sound and our job is musicians. Ultimately I think is to learn to hear and appreciate and love and work and mold and craft the sound. That's what we deal with this sound and let's right exactly. I mean it's hard to not interrupt each other because of the delay because he both have so much to say Let me just say that Argument like this should be Universally rejected Let these people live in their high places. I've thought a million different thoughts. I mean I live in Tucson Arizona. Which is the international. Marianne cheap festival happens every year. And you talk about Mariuchi bans. I mean southern California too but I mean here Marietta. She's everything every high school. I almost everyone big program. Hasn't Marianne she band. They all have percussion ensemble. They all have steel band which is African. They all have blood of La right there already. they're already using ethnomusicology in their school programs. The centerpiece of the program is the band and the orchestra and the choir You can't make the centerpiece. Marianne she band and the Steel Band because evidently requires twelve people altogether right or twenty And the asked him the same thing. If you're going to have a big band talking about sixteen players if you're going to have a large ensemble involve the most kids. You're talking about the large ensembles but the marching fan thing. I do believe is dangerous and I think it's overdone and I think it feeds into exactly what you were saying about the competitive aspect of this while doing that takes away and reverses the purpose of the musical aspect of music education it turns music which is only a part of marching band sometimes sadly maybe twenty percent it turns that into competition. I will remind everybody what Glenn Gould said. Music is not a competition. It's a love affair. And that's hokey and that sound silly. That's true and if we choose to make it that that we did that it has nothing to do with it but the music itself. Okay here you hear ye I. I think it was a good rant. We had we were true to brand love. I would love anybody listening to this. Please take a minute and sit down and write a something on our facebook page or express your opinions about it. Let's create a forum here call in which no one has done yet. Call in and let us know we get written responses. We don't this is something that that involves all of us and it's terrifying.

"And the at that blend. I'm sorry I it's the delay makes it weird dinner but I was just going to say the idea that that began is just a block of stone and that a person pulled that beautiful thing out of that stone is remarkable. It's it's just one Iraqi listening we've ever done is a species and arguable in every culture. If you go to India are you go to any place in in Asia? They all have their own Michelangelo's in their own style and their own sensibility. Now here's the other thing Do Chinese kids in school in the United States feel less than because they are playing performing music written by a German or an Englishman or American? Do they feel comfortable into the only field worthwhile. And do they only feel like they belong in this world? If they're playing music by Chinese composers and you black kids this thing to black kids relate to music written by white people. I mean everything I'm saying is seems is so ridiculous that it's hardly worth saying but these are the implications of what this statement is it reflects is takes a performance aspect out of music altogether so our young people when they go through secondary school never have an opportunity to learn to play. Anything can pick it up. What they'll say to is is maybe instead of band they should be a mighty on psalm or they should be in a steel drum on some or they should be in a you know. Some kind of traditional music setting from whatever culture is is prominent but my point is like what what do you think is inherently Superior About Mariachi Ensemble. Can't you envision the same problems that people are identifying with bands and orchestras happening in Amman? If you can't you're just not thinking hard enough you're you're you're missing the forest for the trees. You're you're missing the symptoms for the disease. The problem with music education is not And a need to balance things in terms of of Ethnic music representation or any of these does nonsense in this. This article you read. But it's it's about the need for the prevalence of artistic values. There's that we need to eight art. In whatever form that takes by the way there are amazing. Mariachi ensemble out there. And if you're running a mighty NACI group you need to run that group with artistic Standards and artistic values at the forefront if you're conducting a contemporary win ensemble that does avantgarde music. You need to do that with artistic ensembles. If you're doing an early music. Baroque string group. You need to do that with artistic values if you're conducting of you know Were the renaissance motifs and stuff the coral style of singing. If you're if you're doing that whatever you're doing do it. With artistic values at the forefront. That's the problem and if I can backup for second I think this this whole viewpoint is And I know we don't want to get into politics too much here but it really. It represents this view that all Western society is bad or flawed or broken or all of these things article claims colonial elitist Eurocentric oppressive. I made air say this. It's attached to white supremacy down jerks about it. Yeah and the thing is. I don't know if anyone knows who Jon meacham is. He's a historian and author during a total of America. Yeah he says all the time America and you can think of this By Extension Western Culture America is both the Ku Klux Klan and Martin Luther King Junior. We're both wreck. Slavery and the Declaration of Independence. We are both the internment of Japanese-americans in camps during World War. Two and the force that defeated the Nazis and oppression and saved a lot of people's lives. It's it's not if you are sophisticated smart person. It should not be okay for you to accept these platitudes to accept these simple ways of looking at the world because the world is not simple to say that Western Culture Western Art Music is any one thing is really dangerous thinking. It's just not true and by the way. The the implication is the implication is a Western culture has done all of these bad things which we have done but we've also done a lot of good things because life is complicated. People come kid and we need to turn to These other sources of music do you think You know for instance as a as an example native Americans in this in this Culture are sort of Painted with a broad brush as well oftentimes all native American tribes. Were you know peaceful and Just just lived off the land harmoniously and tried to assimilate into Western culture when the Europeans arrived. That's not true what we call native Americans. Will we call Indians was literally hundreds of tribes of people some of which were incredibly warlike some of which were ruthless. I mean read about the blackfoot. I mean these were warriors. These were not these. Were not tribes. That we're just GonNa let the Europeans come. And I mean they were and ending their teepees. You know we WANNA WE WANNA Explore Asian culture. Read a little bit about Genghis Khan when he did. I mean this idea that like Western culture was singularly bad in other cultures were peaceful and loving and we've just gone around the world. Wreaking destruction is not true. I wish people would figure out. We're all the same. We're all the same on. Humans are the same where the same we have the capabilities. The same a conditioning the same prevalence towards violence in towards peace. We're all the same in all of this nonsense cutting drawings barriers in the sand and going You know if you play Beethoven's music than you're racist I mean it's it's just so stupid. It's so so weird and Well here at with a couple of things first of all music is the SAV humanity. Music is the universal language. Music is. There's nothing to argue against music about. It is One of the deeply spiritual creative innate powerful things that we have as a race of people on the planet is prevalent in every culture in this different forms and the reason that evolved in different forms is because different people live different places and evolved their own artistic expression and now America. I hate the word melting pot. But if that's what we are which is the our current politicians wish. We weren't if I'd like to get rid of everything that isn't quite and Christian. I might add But if we are that. And if the new house is not a representation of America with all of its women and ethnicities new of Representatives. I mean this is the ideal of what we are and music is an enormous part of every single human being regardless of whether from is it our job as Americans to I used to cater to Latin kids to Asian kids to black kids. Or is it their job to absorb more of the Lap wham music me you know. It's it's such a ridiculous argument to begin with but The thought that We are being In any way. Discriminating against anybody by using Western Art Music which is the foundation of our in our country. We were settled by Europeans. Folks this may be a huge jolt to some people but the United States of America was was came across the water right and brought that culture with them and it has evolved into our culture and it has become a very important part of our culture not the only part I was watching last night. But those wonderful programs on CNN regarding The seventies eighties kind of the development of rock and roll development of hard rock. Acid rock really interesting stuff. We're all that come from. It came from British culture mostly and like one of the one of the members of forget where they're interviewing last night I think it was I forget which which it was said. The britishers just better than the Americans from which is obviously true. They've turned out all this amazing Output of creative stuff In that genre you know so. Where does all that fit into this? That's all rooted in Western Art Music. Too You know. There's another rock and roll band on the planet or hip hop for that matter. The doesn't use basic western harmony. I mean come on right right You start taking elements apart and it becomes ludicrous yes there. There's Muslim music in Asia. Yes that's what I've been crystal Beijing Opera The original Chinese music is fascinating and was extremely mobile and operated on a different harmonic sensibility than in Western Art Music. Does that make us a colonial because we want to intrude on Asian people in our country? I mean for God's sake and the whole thing has to do with aesthetics it has to do with beauty has to do with creativity it has to do with the betterment of mankind. It is the one glue that is common to every single culture on the planet and it should be looked at and treasured that way and for a bunch of people ethnomusicologist to music. Ed Researchers to stand up here and start to think about this and these insane ways is crazy and The response to it made me even crazier because there were people dress their head and go. Oh Gosh you know I just wrote a post and I said you know what you need to do. If you're questioning anything about this is decide why you show up to work every morning you know what are you doing and why are you doing it? What are you supposed to achieve? Why are you teaching music? Why are you a choral director or an orchestra director band director? What are you doing for young people? What the music the vehicle or using the only thing you know or is it all about your teaching methods or is it all about your tuning machine or is it all about your IPAD. What are you doing? Does that mean that? We shouldn't be progressing. No it does not. Does that mean that we should just flush the toilet on all performing ensembles In Secondary School I mean my God you know and one more thing I want to say and this will make everybody. Furious were done and I put the blame In secondary school the failing of serious music programs in the secondary school on the lap of the marching band. And the show choir. You know Not all choirs in high school are Glee. The television program and turned into entertainment. Not all band programs. The United States are supposed to March up and down and Winning trophies and win contests. And if you've gone off the chart in any one of those venues. You are responsible for part of this insane. Thinking Right We are not in the business of entertainment entertainers entertain music Educators teach music the value of music the upper crust. The God forbid sophistication of music. It's like well you know. We have a steady diet of McDonald's. Hamburgers as White Americans is that always should eat She tried Chinese food. Should Chinese Americans try French food. I mean it. It's so absurd right. Yeah if I can I. Can I take your point a level deeper because I I tend to agree with you about marching band and show choir but.

"As in ethnomusicology When they mentioned and I'm ranting right now to our podcast is called band ranting when They mentioned the higher the Lita Music Education. I don't mean to demean any of my colleagues. I'd like to know who those people are. You know I mean who are these people because music education programs in universities are still as we sit here at this moment somewhere on planet earth because music get class in progress trying to teach students how to teach music and that was started out as their initial purpose. And then as I said it evolved. If we'RE GONNA call this evolution of some sort into this high. I retired evolutionary kinds of thinking. And now we're talking about Western Art Music as being colonizing you know that. I think it jumped out to me more than any of them. Because the implication of it is it it all comes from a certain place and then the Further implication it was brought up on several comments on the facebook post was about jazz and You know Is there jazz evolved in Africa well with African Americans? Yes we all know. This is true this jazz use any of the elements of them you know. Oh my God all sophisticated jazz. All Big Band music. All of that is a combination of Western harmony Western Art Music and with Jazz Rhythms Jazz. Feel jazz styles. It's a big combination of everything and it has a place Has earned his place in the music curriculum in secondary school. There's no argument about that are we. Why are we talking about that? Well it's this Janice fit into this jazz African American. No it's not jazz. International Justice in every single culture unplanned earth in one form or another so. I mean these arguments are so far out of the realm of of Practicality and of reality that it's overwhelming to me so like you said what do we do about Spurs Day Preserving Music Education School Visit goes way beyond that because now we're talking about the arts in public school. We're talking about visual art. We're talking about English Literature we're talking about theater. We're talking about sculpture. We're talking about dance. All of them Do they all go to the various sarcastic remark and one of my responses and I said the statue of David was carved by a homosexual white person. Should we take an axe to it and just chop it up a little pieces and bury it? You know I mean that's how ridiculous it is. It's probably the most famous worldwide. Not just European. We're invited example of sculpture on the planet all right. It was not carved by A Chinese person or a Korean person or an Indian Person It was it was it was It was made by a white Human being and it's beautiful. I mean that's that's what's why is enduring..

"There is some music by African American posers. There are a handful of pieces by Latin composers there are a handful of pieces in the American Wind Band Library of Asian composers. It's interesting because it might time in China. What Asian composers are now doing is using all western harmony techniques and all those kinds of things and using Asian folk songs And Calling Asian Band music which is really interesting Not Modal Authentic Chinese music or Korean music but Western music using Folksongs from the country. Which made me think immediately of the only ethnic piece that I can think of that this blatantly. So in the band repertoires variations on a Korean folk song and Blah It's really a Korean folk song and John Barnes Chance Knew that and found the Korean tune and when it came out no one ever heard of a Korean folk song or new one. So I'm just giving these things. It's sort of a basis of discussion and so the very suggestion that the performance aspect of music should be diminished in secondary education is a terrifying one and then it should be replaced by the academic side of it and more ethnic music. Now there's A big emphasis on world music for example in universities and there are a world percussion classes there's ethnomusicology courses lots of them Which is all fabulous and yes. There is a wealth of music from all over the world. Is it possible to integrate that music into a secondary performance situation? The answer's obvious. No not possible. Do you agree with me? James I'd have to think about that. I actually think there are some situations where it might be possible. Depend my my big thing is i. I really get upset about the categorical categorical nature of of the thinking here so in other words to say that all wham which by the way what a stupid term that is made me want to throw out the media but moralize and and dehumanizing but to say that all Western Art Music is anything to use. Any agitative is inherently reductive. Right I mean I think what you're talking about when you say Western Art Music. You're saying all music that was written As Far East as you know a Turkey and as far west as Hawaii over the last you know fifteen hundred years To say that all of that is is one thing is just and like it's an obvious Straw man. What you doing you know in philosophy. I was a philosophy major for a while so I learned all my My rational Fallacies in one of the common fallacies people using argument when they're trying to win an argument and the truth is not on their side. Is they make the opposing argument. A Straw man. They make it weaker so by saying that all Western Art Music is one thing saying that all Western Art Music is colonizing or elitist or you know eurocentric or I mean we could talk for hours about how similar to discussion we had last podcast about how this represents a fundamental misunderstanding of art. I could ask questions like which note in our twelve note. System is the oppressive note. And what is what. What is it about What is it about the way that Beethoven use those notes that's inherently oppressive as opposed to you know a contemporary native American composer using the same notes? It's just it's so bafflingly stupid But there there is this Strain of thinking out there that I do. I do think I liked the when you introduced this that you said the person who posted it said you know. We all need to be aware of this argument. I think it's true because I've I've now coming into contact with this argument or variations of it many many times the most common form. I've heard I don't know if you've heard this at all is a lot of talk about the Big Four. They call it The big four being Let's see if I can get this radio band orchestra or maybe it's the big three. I guess it must be the big three band or orchestra choir. I think yeah and and basically what the conversation is an? They've seen this at some conferences. I've read it in some articles I've talked to some music folks about it. It's this idea that the traditional Ensembles that we offer in Music Education Band Orchestra. Choir are failing and we need to abandon them. We need to go a different way. year ago went to conference and it was kind of this alternative Music Ed Conference and there are parts of it. I really enjoyed because it was kind of like I'd say the theme of the conference was. Let's try new stuff. Let's find new ways of connecting with students? Which I'm I'm all for. But there were several presenters and sessions. I went to who were very much on board with this. We gotta get rid of the Big Three. We gotTA GET RID OF BEING. We gotTA GET RID OF. Orchestra we gotta give it a choir and of course. The question is okay. What are you gonNA replace it with? And One of the gentlemen who presented at this conference his big revelation. His big idea that was going to change the world was he had started an ipad ensemble and so I went to this Asinine session. Where this guy passed out ipads and there were looped patterns on this program and so you would touch the button once and it would play a looped pattern and he started like instructing everybody how to put together a song and it was horrific and it was a disaster and then he played a video of a performance of of his IPAD ENSEMBLE. And it was. It was atrocious and well and let me say again because here. I am falling into the same category. Same problem of being too categorical here. I can envision an ipad ensemble that's amazing and outstanding and does artistically Wonderful things but there's nothing about an ipad ensemble itself just as there's nothing about a choir itself that is universally one thing and so again to paint with a broad brush and to say we need to get rid of all choirs like that's just stupid and if and I know him blathering on here but if I can make one more point before I toss it to you here buddy I think a lot of these people if we WANNA bring back to what we talked about. A lot on this podcast. I think what's happened is a lot of people who really love music. Got A really bad music education. When they were in school they had a bad teacher. They had a mean teacher. They had a teacher who was obsessed with competition and winning on but ratings and possibly incompetent in what they were doing and these people went through these programs and just felt completely ostracized disconnected marginalized by them. And they're smart folks. They went to college and now they're they're coming from this point of view of of the experience. They had been very poor in school. And I wal- I empathize with that. And and I WANNA do everything I can to to to change that. I think we have to be careful not to draw too broad of a conclusion from two specific of an experience. Just because you're director sucked doesn't mean every band sucks and just because you're Orchestra Sucks Orchestra director sex or was mean or whatever Lori incompetent doesn't mean that everyone is so I just I just went on a little rant. There Sorry Greg what do you what do you want to say all really really good stuff you know. I mean I sent me off to an extent where I could talk about it for three days. We have three days right now. I have a mixture of sort of intellectual and being practical about the same time And you know me I mean I'm GONNA call it like I see it It is true that a lot of performance oriented music. Education is failing and it is true that some people in our culture now are so Obsessed with electronics of all kinds. This is the you know. The intrusion of Dr Beat and are tuning machines and our in our rehearsals And every other IPAD ipod. I thing that you can possibly imagine That have you know that that everybody feels like needs to be incorporated into but we're doing well. Here's the delineation. The way I see it we are dealing with first of all the human voice which is part of our physical beings. This is not going to go away as long as you think to flush the toilet inquires People will still sing so that argument is out the window. However acoustic instruments like string instruments and wins and percussion require that human beings overcome and work with an imperfect thing an object that is not electronically based and there are people who believe that that is outmoded that all that stuff should be thrown in the garbage and all the music that came along with. It should be throwing there too. Now here's my question what Let's shift gears completely here from this kind of insanity to say. What is the purpose of studying music? I don't care whether you play trumpet or synthesizer or what you play. What is the purpose of? Why is it on the planet? Well obviously Usually on the planet as means of expression for human beings. I don't think anybody on I would argue with that. It has been used for academic discipline. It has been used in in in the Greeks To emphasize it's important in terms of mathematics All those kinds of things is used in our society to develop young people to develop their concentration to develop their Awareness their their aesthetic awareness their artistic sensibility their creative awareness right now. What if we take that? As sort of an overriding philosophy. About why we do what we do. I'm going to ask this question and it's not a naive question. What DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? What venue is used? What difference does it make whether it's a group of acoustic instruments or not and immediately why you were talking? I thought Jason Collier and I'm sure I hope that everybody out there knows who Jason Collier is. He's young Brit. He's about twenty four twenty five years old amazing position and he have you. Do you know he is James. Oh yeah well When you said putting things on a loop he does this with his acoustic instruments with his and with his own voice and he incorporates electronics into An amazing style of what he's done. He takes old standard songs and some original stuff too that he does and he lays down each track he doesn't on drums. Then he'll do it with the Harmony Ben Hill do with You know different synthesized sounds etc. He's invented he and a German friend of his invented a Electric machine that makes his voice into acquire. And it's all connected to a keyboard so that you can play court progression and your own voice is plays seems each one of the notes in that Corp progressional each one of those Nelson that cord and you become acquire yourself which is ingenious and brilliant and amazing but it's all generated Acoustically from him. So there's a living breathing combination of all of these things put together which is astounding everywhere. He goes people are absolutely knocked out by him. And he's so inventive in so ingenious. Okay back to your point about ethnomusicology. I have no problem with people studied music of the world. I have no problem with that at all. I think that those people never given a second thought to what I just said about. Why DO PEOPLE STUDYING MUSIC? Why should a young person getting involved during the instrument of any kind? Why should they Get involved with learning to sing. What does it do for them as an individual? What does the study of music do for as an individual is an academic pursuit is? It doesn't turn into strictly.

"Hello everybody we are your hosts we are back. It is lovely to be with you once again. Here on the been renting podcast. Jim suppo- veto We took a little break. But we're back right joins US always by my counterpart Mr Greg Hanson. How are you this morning? Sir? I'm very good. Yeah we took a little break Sort of the holidays Figures everybody was kind of made me dizzy and we were so. We're very busy. Yeah we're engines. We're doing some cool stuff with Sania wins which maybe we should talk about later in the show Let's talk about what let's talk about that. I owe you anticipate I sure. Yeah we Greg and I. Yeah that's true. We always kind of get wrapped up in whatever we're talking about. Greg are part of Nation Sania winds which is a professional wind ensemble located in the San Diego Metropolitan area and we are proud to announce drum roll. That we are Widening our concert performance season two four concerts this year. We've been doing Basically to for the last three or four years and we've won some new grants and have made some progress with the financial side of things and so we're expanding four concerts. We're very excited about this. Aren't we greg we are? It's really starting to go. It's starting to grow and it is very exciting. We could talk a whole show but I won't do it today but let me just summarize that we have a concert coming up on seven. February that is going to be titled Early Music early jazz gyms and these are chamber pieces for Actually Chamber Orchestra. They're not just for wins if Chamber Orchestra but there are pieces that Two of wish everybody knows and loves and aspires to play Andrew Conduct. One is the sweet from that little threepenny music by Kurt Vile and the other one is the creation of the world by Dr Use meal and we got a grant from the Chris Vile Foundation. James Did I. Didn't he did all the work and we're playing to. Chris filed pieces. Another one is sweet. translation sweet Panama It's a it's from a very obscure. Kurt vile opera And it's a Swedish music from it but it's really interesting and stuff that no one's ever heard before i. I doubt that anybody ever shows up or has plays or anything else. It's really interesting stuff. Anyway it's a big program and the players are very excited about it. I'm very excited about it. And maybe you could come from wherever you are OPPA plane or New York or Florida and come to San Diego State he goes the best places. Come to anyway. Yeah I'm the sheriff took free and join us. We've been complaining here in San Diego because the weather has been so cold. We've got we've gotten down to like fifty six a few times. We're all back. Yeah but just briefly. I just wanted to say that. And this is a little bit preaching to the choir because I imagine muscle people listening to this our band directors but importance of a professional went unsolvable. I don't think gets talked about enough. It's so important. You know if you look at the data the data in this country where young people are getting their education. In art the plurality of them at least if not a majority are are learning what art is through band. They're taking band classes There's certainly in the in the music field. The overwhelming majority of students are taking band classes in their schools. As opposed to Choir Orchestra other music classes and then Overall in arts band is always one of the most populated so It's really important that there's an artistic sort of example. There's an artistic model for these young people all across the country to aspire to and and I think it's a really important part of the work we're trying to do related to this podcast of of elevating the level of artistry in Band Music Is having this professional group so highly? Encourage you to check these groups out wherever they exist. There's a few across the country. Obviously Dallas Wind Symphony is the most famous and the most recognized and and they've been around the longest but but we're trying to do it too and and support these folks please. If you can because it's really important work. We think so. Well well sad well said thank you sir. We wanted to talk about what Greg Greg has been very active lately in the band director community on the facebook on the book faces and there was a angry interested conversation that that came out. Why don't you tell us what you guys were talking about? And we can dive in and start to take this apart. Yeah well I I maybe some of you read. I'm sure some of you saw it I went crazy because it just struck me. It was like somebody came up and slapped my face as hard as they could. After fifty years of doing I've been doing but it has to do with Current philosophy of music education and I have some conclusions after I read. I want to read the whole thing. I'm going to give a dramatic reading because I want to make the most of it but I wanna read the whole thing. It was posted by someone who did not right at He he I don't know exactly where he got it but he got it from someplace and posted it online. Instead this is something about our professional future philosophically something. We should probably think about so here. It is and I'm going to take a few minutes. Stay with me here. Because it's a lot of Sort of academic Mumbo jumbo but I want you to listen to it okay. He said Philosophical Discussion. That concerns your professional future. This might be controversial. Wow if this hasn't come on your radar yet. My prediction is will eventually become a mainstream issue at some point and we need to know what our position will be and how to respond. That's introduction to it okay. Here's the statement. There is an axiomatic claim. Among post modernist critical scholars primarily ethnomusicology but also increasingly in the Ivory Towers Music Education Western Art Music acronym GAM as in Hitchin Ram is inherently colonizing Wham as a sport historically supported by eighteenth nineteenth century imperial colonization wham has diverted musical traditions and their transmission throughout the world when promotes musical elitism as well as social easy wham prescribes. The hierarchy of music sophistication. I music genres are judged. By how sophisticated or civilized. They are not by the meaning of what they bring to their audiences wham as Eurocentric and promotes eurocentrism both locally and around the globe. Just listen to everyone every national anthem. Wham as disenfranchising students disenfranchising just isn't so every subculture or minority the outcomes of a Wham Central Music. Education are incommensurate but multi-culturalism that's the first paragraph Let me read a little bit more. Here there's a growing number of scholars who believe it is time for band and choir and orchestra to be seriously diminished. As an emphasis in secondary music education seriously diminished and we should instead switch as swiftly as possible to other mediums and approaches specifically that don't represent oppression and more in line with the quality is on the basis of rams inherent colonial not inherent learning outcomes. Let's get to know that. It should be seriously reduced from his current position in music education. Okay well And there's another couple of paragraphs but I think you get the drift of what what this is about First of all. What's your reaction to what I read to you. Well I wanted to because you mentioned this to me briefly before we started and I was just like counting. How many claims this person was making so it was taking some notes here and just to summarize everything you just said. Here's all the different claims. This person has made me music way on Western art. Music is colonizing its elitist. It emphasizes sophistication over. Meaning it's Eurocentric. It's disenfranchising the Traditional ensembles of Band Orchestra Choir needs to be diminished and we need to switch to music that is not as oppressive so we can take all of these claims one at a time. I suppose but I mean. I don't think there's any need for that frankly. My general impression is it's it's just a couple well. This could go on a long time so let me let me say this I. There are too many Advance music education degrees. First of all this is a dirty little secret. Nobody wants to talk about You can't get conducting degree online. Actually can now which his weird. There's one college that's doing online conducting masters degrees but for the most part it's But for the most part you can't you conducting degrees online and you can't get music degrees online everywhere. You can get music at doctorates online everywhere. And so you have this massive flood of people in this field. And it is a perversion. I think that's a strong word but It in a lot of ways if it's not done carefully and if it's not done responsibly. It becomes this parasitic field in my opinion One of my favorite books of all time and I think it's one of the most important authors of of the last hundred years is a guy named Robert Pearce and he talks about In his book Lila this idea of what he calls philosophy. Which is he was a philosopher and so he he talks about the meaning of the of the word philosophy full of Filo love the word. Philosophy means love of knowledge basically love of ideas and he was interested in coming up with ideas and exploring ideas and playing with ideas and creating ideas but there are a whole lot of people who call themselves philosophers who don't really create ideas. They regurgitate other people's ideas and so he came up with this. Term Flaw Sofala Gist. Which is someone who is not actually doing the primary field but is parasitic attachment to it. And I think there's a real danger here with some of these Music Ed folks who aren't actually making music. Who are actually on the ground in ensembles. Teaching people making music that they they start intellectualize it and they start thinking and what they're doing is just as parasitic attachment to real music making it so divorced from the reality that it's it's it's kind of absurd it's like in its own little world it it.

One of which is to people experience music through performance through doing it and learning about it that way or is it an academic pursuit where you just listen and read and talk If it is one of the other I mean this.

Let's strive to play more at music? Well now these comments all sound great when they're off the top of your head.
