The Heads of the Orchestras Don't Appeal to Noble People

"You would think that the music critics of this country would be the great defenders of the canon. But they are the first to crap on it. In other words, classical music has produced leaders who have utter contempt for the very art they were entrusted with. It also proves a thesis that was the most painful feces of my life because I love classical music so much. And that is that Bach and Beethoven and Mozart and brahms and so on. They don't appear to ennoble people necessarily. They can, but they don't appear to have done so. You can love and play Beethoven. Beautifully. And be a moral idiot. As so many members of our orchestras unfortunately are and certainly the heads of the orchestras.

Mike Gallagher: Salzburg Is Famous for Two Things

"Well, thanks, Carl, greetings from Salzburg, Austria, without a doubt, the most magnificent magical enchanted city I've ever seen in my life. I'm so glad we got to come to Salzburg. Of course, Salzburg is famous for two things for the tourists. Wolf Wolfgang, Amadeus Mozart. This was his birthplace, and where he spent much of his life. And of course, the sound of music, some scenes that were filmed there. The architecture, though, beautiful churches and cathedrals everywhere. This is a beautiful, beautiful Austrian city nestled on the river and with the Alps and the beautiful fortress believe it or not, overlooking the city that encloses all of it. Just the history, the charm, and of course everything is Mozart Mozart Mozart. This is where he was born. See this house here, with the yellow painting on the outside. That's the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. He lived here for a number of years. He moved to Vienna, became disenchanted with Salisbury because he felt they didn't recognize his greatness and wow, his greatness, of course, prolific and felt the world over. Interesting facts about sound of music. We saw a couple of the places where the movie was filmed, including when Julie Andrews came running through the courtyard with her guitar. We saw where they had the big music festival where the von trapp family flat fleas at the end of the movie for the big dramatic finish, but our tour guide explained that locals don't really like the American version of the sound of music because the sound of music was the story of Maria von trapp was originally captured in the early 1950s by a German film. So the Broadway musical, which was mounted in 1959, and then the movie a few years later, for them was just a reprise and they didn't care. People in Austria and even Germany, they didn't care very much for the sound of music. Believe it

Naomi Wolf on Living in a Time Where Virtue Is Out of Fashion

"Naomi, look, you and I were in college at a time where I feel like even the concept of virtue was already out of fashion. It was mocked, honor. These things were already being locked in the culturally elite circles where we went, that that's for rubes. That's for people in flyover country to talk about patriotism, or love of country, love of truth. What is truth? That's been percolating for many decades. And this is the fruit. Yeah. You really opened my eyes to that in our early conversation, the you're right. And I do think that the CCP has had a profound impact on college campuses. There's Institutes called Confucius Institutes that were opened across the country. I'm sure you've spoken about that before. And I see the impact on our curriculum and it's making me rethink everything, like feminism, feminism should be about embracing women's role in every aspect of our lives, including maternity and family. And in the west, it's been distilled down to just abortion, right? Well, that's kind of a satanic and Marxist way to look at this complex issue of how women can be free. And there's so many examples. You know, you and I talked about deconstruction and how it strips poetry of meaning and it strips literature of meaning and its trips these are culture of dimensional meaning, human meaning. Will this escalate it and I really tease this out in the bodies of others where I look at what got targeted culturally and what got targeted in terms of faith, culture makes us strong in cultures where the western values of the lessons about morality and honor and meaning get transmitted. Well, culture got targeted. You know, you could go to a liquor store, you could go to a pot store in some states, you couldn't go to the theater, you couldn't go to hear a concert, you know, you couldn't hear Mozart in a group of human

"It was probably more strings too at that point. But my point is usually get yourself going down. He is a composer, probably the best composer of all time. And then so I would compare him and John Williams. Yeah. That's more accurate. Like John Williams is not their fucking strumming guitar at MSG, but he's making the fucking music that we've all come to know and love for our whole lives during movies. Almost composed movie music. Harry Potter. Yeah. I think that's a good comparison. I think John Williams is the best composer of all time. What Star Wars? What year, what year do you guys think Wolfgang Mozart died? All right, so I won't answer because I pulled up his Wikipedia. I know. I could be right, Frankie, but you're the only one that is eligible for this. Wow. What year do you think Mozart died? I'm curious just if you can get within a hundred years. Hundred years. I don't think I'm gonna be able to get within a thousand. I'd also like to mention right now the Pablo Picasso died in 1973. It's stunning. Right. Always a good one. Always a good one. The best one. I'm trying to think, man. All right. Now I really have to die after the movie. I'm gonna say that Mozart was around. When did he die? Dude, this is bad. Just do it. Just jump off the cliff. I don't know if I can. You have a number in there. I know you have a number. What is it? I don't know, man. I'm gonna say, I don't wanna do this. Do it. I don't wanna do it. 1585? Nope. Fuck. 200 years off. Not terrible. Not that bad. Not that bad. I thought you were gonna say maybe like a hundred BC or something. 1791. 1791. It was only 35 years old. Well, he was the he was the prodigy, right? He was composing music when he was like 11 or something. Yeah, just two, but I thought that was stupid. I thought right. You just read the Wikipedia page there, Trump, 'cause I think we all just run that little snippet of. I don't know that I would have done much better Frank. I think that's pretty good actually..

"I like to do the most. Ever since I was a little kid is right. And so you start to analyze me about me being a mystic like in the 1500s riding until my hands were playing. Yeah, so you're a writer and you're a writer and you had flow, but the information coming down much like Mozart in your case it was getting caught in your body. And so because the information download was so grand. And if the body of the vessel can't capture it, it will have an impact. And so is that I went into your field in the present day. I said, well, then what I'm seeing is a mineralization of your kidneys. And I said, sometimes it's getting stuck in your kidneys and the kidneys have this ability to capture kidneys and gallbladder. They capture things and they encapsulate. And so I believe you're over mineralized to which your son spouted. You'd had a mineralization issue. That's right, I have passed a gallstone recently. So there was the validation of the mineralization. I do get a little bit of gout in my big toast, too. The oxalate thing. We're talking about earlier. There you go. So that was the thing. And then I saw again and it's annoying. I said it has something to do. With a family member. Yeah, you said like a fishing trip when I was 9 years old where I was punished and I know that you talked to me and later on tonight we're going to do a little bit more work around this issue and see what you're basically sitting there like literally just like straight face sitting across from the table, telling us this stuff, again, like no offense but like a fortune teller at a circus. Yes, however, I've been called a spiritual scientist. And so one of the things that I have been really careful about and this is why I'm now coming out broadly about this on.

"To this one song. Very very specifically And not to your preferred music. No yeah well. I mean this is what it is i mean but yeah i. I'm confused yes. I don't necessarily know if they actually looked at like the data activity also in the preferred music to see if that did spike even though there was no reduction in ideas I don't think that it or at least show it at least exactly so yeah. It was weird because if we get to the discussion already when they talk about that they really wanted to sort of to me felt reading this that they were trying to make the jump towards the emotional network quite quickly from just a tatum activity essentially. And if that's the brainwave section that's fulton that it makes a certain type of shuns But they also had a model latest version of the case for eight song. They don't really specifically show how was more related but they say that one didn't work because it wasn't as nice to listen to anymore because of the malaysians but i don't know it might be interesting to in the future making make an episode on on just a lot of different papers focusing on this this beneficial music effect. Yeah it's it's an interesting field though. I never knew that. There were an entire field of researcher. Actually looking into the beneficial effect of these mozart. Yeah i mean. There's just a lot of upside though with this right. I mean if you just have like a third of one percent of the entire world suffering from something that you cannot really properly treat and it all it takes is listening to at least thirty seconds of mozart disorder have some beneficial effect. That'd be great. Well they issue however was just a the ninety seconds didn't have an effect that was very long lasting but if you they have previously shown in papers pay if you listen to more of it they do also an epilepsy get a more long lasting effect. Yeah that's actually also wanted something. I wanted to look into a little bit further as well because they had sixteen people. Total for their entire experiment. Split over two groups. Eight eight and that are ninety. Second group was predominantly male. So i don't know like wetter. Maybe doubt long lasting effect might be you know less prevalent for males or something. I don't know it was something. They mentioned specifically in sort of their discussion. No not even. They're stretching just when they were describing their their patient population how it was distributed between the things because they they had these patients where they also had electrodes inside of their skull basically because they wanted to really look specifically at these waves and these locations quite a specific group of patients that were treated with this electrodes in their skull that then where measured for this yes. Oh but it's a very interesting study. I think and it's a very interesting topic that i might want to know more about in the future. So maybe we'll make sign's behind episodes about the effect of music on new. In general i mean in general. It's because now in in the the as you mentioned with like the electrodes these people had like electrode. Sorta the surgically inserted. Yes yes so they were at a yeah. I wouldn't say desperate state but they needed this to find out more information about where are their epileptic seizures and stuff coming from with just for this study we actually a test for for them and then they also played so music him as well. If you're going to do this anyway. Can we also use you for some research. But so i wonder since this is sort of a relatively on the extreme side indeed of the one third of people that don't respond to anything so i would wonder i would imagine as well that the people who do have epilepsy but do respond to medication. Might also respond to mos done but then you might be able to take them off medication. If moser was super might be doubt. Yes. that's a stretch. But i would like to look into that a little bit more because now we don't have that information here for example. Yeah and i'm also really interested in the effect that they measure on just healthy people mean new. I need to listen to mozart. Well at least unhealthy people You get sort of that spatial. Temporal performance boost is and. You also told me that that doesn't happen in musicians. Yes i read. At least i was in the review. There was quickly mentioned that musicians in nazi this beneficial boost to the l. sack so maybe i guess their spatial at least spatial temporal performance. That they are already sort of well versed or well practiced in doubt that they were well. Developed i mean that moser doesn't help them develop that anymore so i don't know okay fair very interesting but i think we have now discussed everything that has been done in his paper right. Yeah yeah. I think more a s interested in this in this mozart effect now as we are. Keep your eyes out for future.

"Okay so today. In this episode. We are going to talk about a paper. Anna sort of is tradition in our cutting reaches episode. We found them on the niche facebook. Page so this paper really grabbed our attention. And it's about the mozart effect on epilepsy And i thought that was super interesting. So migiro read. It's so jerem. Tell us about this paper. What is his goals and where his published. Yes so the paper it's held. The title of the paper is musical components. Important for mozart k four hundred forty eight effect in epilepsy. It's published in scientific reports and yeah it's by kwon at all gone at all. Okay so first question when you hear. The style writes Mozart gay for for eight yes. That's a song. well technically. it's a sonata. It's so it's the it's not a for two pianos in d major. So that's eight hundred. Four hundred forty eight part away. And yeah so i guess a little bit. Maybe not really background. But i guess we've all heard of People who play classical music for their yet unborn children or maybe already born children always thought. That was a bit sketchy. Yeah yeah old wives tale. I guess but While there is research being done on that barely. I could find a paper that was from nineteen ninety tree that looked into The mozart artifact as it were in performance or intelligence does actually have an effect yes so already in nineteen ninety-three that they could they could show that doesn't have a sort of general effect on your iq or performance but really like specifically for your spatial temporal performance in in different tasks dot. So it's a very specific effect. And in five years later a paper was published. That showed that apparently this specific sonata could also reduce symptoms of epilepsy. Okay but it's just just this gay for her aid to not that and not any other motaung or classical music or well it. This one is the most studied one but there is another one so k. Five forty five that also has been studied to a bit but less so than this one but so far they've researchers have also looked at for example wagner. beethoven others. i think as well but yeah. They haven't really shown this same effect. And i think we'll also touch on those again in this paper. Okay so only. Mozart gave her aids and gay for five four at both in piano. Yes wow okay. That's that's very specific to the five four. Five is the piano sonata in c major. If that helps anyone really knowing also see here that they previously tested. Beethoven's released a string version of k for eight and it didn't work. Nope wow okay interesting. So i guess we have definitive proof that mozart beethoven and only piano. Well yeah.

"Today we are talking about the somewhat controversial topic of traditional versus contemporary. And this is a debate in pretty much all areas of life or art forms, whether you are thinking literary. So where you have a more traditional or even historical type fiction versus contemporary fiction or in music, if you like the traditional sounding songs, very classical, or a more contemporary pop genre, and obviously to apologize to everything else, like politics, if you have your more traditional people and your more contemporary progressive people anyway, I personally believe that it's important that we can appreciate things on both sides. Of the line. So when it comes to more traditional sounding violin music, you're going to think, especially a lot about Bach baro, classical era, music like Mozart, so here's a little box. Okay, so this very ornate decorative sounding music or you might have something even from the romantic time period, which was 19th century. Right? Now, if you are actually trying to do something more contemporary, you might do a little bit more with improvisation, although actually in the baroque era Bach did improvise a lot. But for example, if this was like twinkle little star. You know, Abu Dhabi in French Mozart did a ton of variations on that. But a contemporary version of that could be.

"Folks in sales and sales operations works as well all are becoming really data savvy and that's a great trend that we really hope to take advantage of. I see a number of directions. You could go. But i'm curious about the ways in which mozart data's going to grow in the future. What are the plans for where the product will head. So i mean the way that we think about product direction. We were really closely with with a lot of our customers. And you know our our goal is to make your job easier as an analyst so work closely with our customers were pretty aware of what is currently hard for them with their current tools when that includes mozart so i mean some of the specifics of as a data team or is an organization matures in their use of data. The stuff that comes up Needs a little bit more work. Are things like data cataloging and observability so understanding. How the data's flowing through your system and then you know being able to take advantage one person's work being able to be taken advantage of by another person that requires some some cataloging and city. You can basically share the information to that others can take advantage of that and also a lot of stuff around permission and as as a company grows and maybe you know the the initial users of a system like this or effectively admins of the whole data but then they start empowering other people in the organization to answer questions maybe they hook up puzzle even like a no code. Bi tool or low code bi tool. And you start empowering other people in the org dancer questions then you have issues around commissioning and you might want you know. The sales team is now going to use some of the outputs of your data pipeline. But you you don't want them to have access to hr data. That's also the database for different team to to us and that could be the tricky. Db problems to manage that so we have. We have plans on our road map to try to make that easier to manage when mozart did it gets deployed to one of your customers. Is it a senate and forget it kind of thing or to someone in my oregon operating that in some way so we have some of both. I mean you don't you. Can't you can connect something maybe transformed something and then set up. A dashboard and that dashboard will work. You know forever and some of our customers do that. They come to us. They have some problem. They know they can solve it with a combination of data across their tools. And we help them get there. But most companies at that point will also cease. Now they understand kind of the power that they have. And they'll start. They'll start building more pipelines will start answering other questions and one thing we definitely see the core mozart users at a company. They'll often you know they are then more efficient at answering questions and they'll start getting more and more questions coming into them and and you know the the use of data tends to grow when you see it being successful an easier to do and do you envision to make a comparison to the elk stack where you have elastic. Search log stash and cabana. Do you see mozart being the m of some other stack. Yeah so we're trying to kind of be. We try to cover everything in a data stack right now. You can build a data stack using ten different services right. There's a ton of companies that are like all we do. Is data cataloging. All we do is data lineage. All we do is transformations or e e l. We're trying to be the you know the turnkey all in one but in many cases you're you're gonna wanna go deep on one dimension of that so you might. You might get most of what you need out of it. But then you wanna hook up one dedicated cataloging tool or you wanna use a machine learning tool things like that and so there. That's a pretty common use case like i was mentioning before with like reverse. Etl that's that's something that we dabble in a little bit But if you wanna go into deep deep on that then there's you know there's whole big companies of people that are dedicated just to moving data out of a data warehouse and back in india sas tolls so those are pretty common partners for us. What's your common use case for. People getting started. And can you tell anyone who's listening and fits that model where they can get going. Yeah when companies are are really ready to make that investment in data whether that's a person whether that's data infrastructure want to be the easiest fastest most cost effective way of getting you successful at the start of your data journey like our goal as a company is to basically empower our business users to take advantage of their data to write definitions in languages in tooling. They're comfortable in Like sequel and we think of ourselves as easiest way to get started with a world class monitor data stack and all through in there you can go to.

"Certainly is the case that there are. There are many tools in both the transfer space on the ice space. That enable you to do it but it is certainly a best practice to get basically as much as you're sort of going to be making decisions off of data together in in your data warehouse expense and i'm curious if you have any thoughts on the evolution of a team growing in a startup per amid sized company with the availability of tools like yours. It seems like maybe a data engineer could be delayed a bit because some of the fundamental stuff can be done in an automated fashion. I don't believe we'll ever eliminate the date engineer position. I think the tooling just scales the professional. But i'm curious to get your thoughts on how these things might be evolving in the modern tech group. I agree with you that the data engineers job is not going away. In fact the demand for data engineers is massively. outpacing the supply. So i wouldn't be worried about your employment prospects if you were a data engineer not because of the existence of mozart or similar tooling just because demand for data the end people very capable of moving manipulating in summarizing data is just honestly increasing. It feels like by the minute so the point is not totally obsolete. They'd engineer that said it's not not to do that and i. I actually attended a talk by george frazier of by tran and five hundred organization of many hundreds of people that doesn't have a data engineer. Now their business is to obsolete the data engineer. But i would say that you can see very large very successful businesses that would typically rely on not a single data engineer but a team of data engineers to do certain work. What you don't want is people that are becoming increasingly more. Scarce and increasingly more valuable and their output is becoming increasingly more leverage. Doing highly wrote work. That like as dan mentioned in some senses a solved problem where people are solving it at scale. So i think i'm i'm religiously of the camp of the tooling including mozart is now at eight. That's good enough. That can certainly push your first data. Higher not necessarily be an engineer or a date engineer or a hybrid data engineer and data analysts. Instead you should be looking for essentially the types of skills that you should leverage a tool like moats are and then hire for the types of skills that are are important for teasing out insights from the data. I'm curious if you have any thoughts or are seeing patterns as the product grows around the right point of adoption. Is this something early. Stage companies are picking up. 'cause they see the need and they don't wanna build all these connectors or is it something a later stage companies adopting so the answer is both. I am surprised at just how early companies are essentially getting on board with data again most of the companies that i joined i joined as employee number one hundred and that was the time where they were making big investments in data teams. Today you know we obviously have sold to companies in our y c batch that were just a few people even before they started generating a lot of revenue or certainly a lot of data again. Part of that is like i mentioned in an earlier. Answer part of that is that you can just get started so much more inexpensively right so aside from the people cost you can buy a trivial amount of compute so basically there's a variety of reasons. Why the sort of use of data is happening at an earlier and earlier stage. But it's mostly because it's demanded of these companies so it can be demanded by the market to behave optimally right so to figure out what's working what's not and double down into those that's working and there are so many tools that are much better at sending you signals about what's working you know you can hook up a product analytics tool and instantly see what users are doing and how they're interacting with your your website similarly. It's the case that it might be demanded by the by the capital market the so in order to get venture funding people like to know. These are your metrics and the ability to gather like standard set of metrics very quickly and update them with a single click is a really powerful tool for for raising money. So really i would say that. The reason that the movement has been like has gotten data to to show up earlier and earlier stages and now it's really not uncommon for for precede companies especially technically savvy ones to to be using data and even a lot of data is because one again it's sort of like supply and demand. There is an increased demand for it and it and again it's also like a lot easier. So there's there's an increase supply of of tooling avoiding the reinvention of the wheel is one of the most appealing things to me for a tool like mozart data. I've got plenty of stuff. I need my engineers to build. Why redo yet another stripe integration or something like that but then of course the added benefit of that that a lot of people miss is that i also don't have two main maintain it. That's your problem. Are there any challenges. You've seen Especially over time. Maintaining such a large number of connections in light of you know possible breaking changes from vendor. Api's and things like that. I mean this stuff scales pretty well when we fix a connector. We fix it for all of our customers and now if we didn't exist in those people weren't using a similar tool. That's you know ten x the word hundred x the work. So i mean this to me seems like the efficient way to do it physically. Pull it in in a very generic way and then each each person can transform it in whatever way is is unique to their needs and then we have to maintain like that initial which is get it all out. We're going to naively put it in your database and then you can take it from there. We all want to know that we have enough to get where we want to go. For instance you either have enough energy to run a marathon. Or you're on the side of the road wheezing how about your startup..

"Very neat. what loved to talk through. Maybe a hypothetical integration. Let's say some e commerce company. We've got a shop store. And i would like to update my crm records when sales are made. What's the process like to get that going to qualified. You mean like a reverse. Etl you want you want. Data pushed from shop. Affi- into hub spot or maybe we should revise the question just looking to explore concrete user story. Got it so we we do have some customers that are using exactly shop by and hub spot so we don't all kind of go back to my previous statement. We don't actually do reverse. Etl much will let you sink things to google sheets. But if you wanna go like from chevy in hub spot into your data warehouse we cover that and then if you wanna do some analysis or combine your shop by user info with your hub spot support info perhaps and then push that back into shop fire spot. We don't currently cover that part of the data stack we we partner with a couple of companies Were really like high touch for that. For example got just so. It's really about empowering the analyst. I guess pulling all data together in a common sequel interface. I think like dan highlighted that. We stop where the data becomes specific to you. We are big believers in having having humans that have sort of an intimate knowledge of the tables and the business in the business logic. Definitions really drive the insights and combining very often the types of tools. That sort of out of the box can do this for you. I think fall short or miss the key insight that you're trying to drive out of the data just because there's i mean i think sort of we can call it messy data but it's really just sort of misleading data because you know essentially Typically more is better. And then like somebody trained that knows the data can can refine it down the the centralization here ends up paying off in dividends that you don't really expect to see with one person's work empowering somebody else's work so like you know the the cleaning and organizing the he was talking about a few minutes ago that could be done in a in a bi tool but if one analyst does that in their bi tool. That's not helping anybody else. Do their job better. But if you centralize that and it's in you know effectively a shared repository of code and got these production tables than maybe one team can be empowered to answer their questions. In tableau now the analysts had also have cleaned up data to do whatever machine learning or just you mix them charts that they want to do. And then maybe saying some other team once that data piped back into hubs spots so that their customer support folks can have some extra information when they're dealing with with people that doesn't actually live in hub spot unless it goes through a process like this gets cleaned up and then then put back into the toll. And this is i think a lot of what has inspired the change of the acronym so in general people are now saying yell tea or et l. T. it's really highlighting the importance of that last sort of t- stage before the bi of the last transform stage before the bi so it has really become a common best practice to be cleaning and transforming and sort of having a uniform set of definitions. One layer above your tool. I think what you look back. In my day the practice was always do messy copy and paste of sequel or of dragging drop definitions in your be. Bi tool today. You know it's it's been well surfaced. That a very very very common problem is that you know. It's one question. Several different quote correct answers. One of the not like cure alls but one of the best ways of addressing. This very common problem is to have common definitions written essentially before the bi layer interesting. So in that regard. I would describe mozart. Data is like foundational that it's going to have maybe a few key services that you'd offer in that transform layer. I'm thinking like data enrichment could be one a little bit of cleanup What are some of the appropriate things that you see people using it for before hitting their layer joining so like unionizing enjoining so again. I think this is where the power of like you know. This is where one plus one definitely doesn't equal to. It is certainly. The case and dan gave an example where you can very easily sort of assess a coward. Google ads doing our facebook. Ads doing But when you really actually wanna know is is is often further down the funnel than is than is easy to measure when you're assessing things like and ltv you're often making assumptions once users get to a certain stage if you're only able to analyze data from your essentially your marketing sources. You also have a slightly tough time comparing marketing sources. Because you know you. Can't you might see you know that each is providing you the same cost to get leads to the same place but those leads might perform incredibly differently and then if there is such a thing as attribution. You can't do it. Well when you're doing individual source is most often. If you were to ask say google how how they're doing in terms of what credit they deserve on a lead they would say and that might not actually be true. You might have learned about in another place and the the last touch might have been actually through search but i think like the typical answer is that it is really important to join. Data together were union data and that's not necessarily specific to to mozart. Certainly is the case that there are. There are many tools in both the transfer space on the ice space. That enable you to do it but it is certainly a best practice.

"Analysis when you're able to combined off often data from multiple different places typically in a central warehouse. So that's really you hit on really the punchline for why of mozart's existence which is the right way and you see like most sophisticated companies that use their data do it the following way which is doing their analysis out of powerful koelner when data engineers. Maybe aren't aware of a tool like mozart. I think it's very easy to think. Well let's just spin this up. I can go to the vendor's website. Maybe they've got very developer friendly documentation. I've kind of got my hello world going in a few minutes. Even that happens quite often with a lot of modern tooling so for a developer with a not built here sort of attitude. What's the pitch for mozart data so much functionality that data engineers all the world over are just building over and over again i personally in my career built similar. Data stack similar tools five six times in some cases. So i mean if you really only want to build build things again like i have that syndrome. That's one of the reasons why i have done that. But some of the underlying tools have gotten so good that there's really no reason to focus on building the mechanics of pulling data from one. Api and putting it into a database or snapshot tables or scheduling transformations. The more that you can rely on tried and true tested other people's code will do that for you the more you can focus on. You know the specifics of your data the questions that can actually help your company and really focusing on the problems that are unique to your data. Will you have a lot of. I think one hundred and twenty plus connectors. I i read about on the site. Could you give a sampling of what types of systems. You're currently integrated with yeah. Our most popular are shop. Affi- stray salesforce. Everybody's running half their business of google sheets being able to pull that into your central databases really valuable. Most of our customers have some sort of application database. My sequel post-chris That ideally you're not running your analytics queries on much better to replicate that into a database and then to your off that and then like like you mentioned before accounting tools. Crm marketing is a big one. I think i think marketing attribution is a a really good way to kind of understand the power of this where you can look at your your ads google ads. You're doing you can look at how your ads in facebook or instagram. Or doing but if you really wanna know you know what is our average customer. Acquisition cost a simple thing like that is going to require pulling all that data into one place mixing it up with the however. You're being paid from your customers and so a tool like this getting central database and then pulling all of your data into it. That's when you can really unlock like some other questions. That are gonna be Very valuable to you. Can you describe a little bit about the experience once. All the data has landed there. Let's say i have At my organization if connected five or six of those tools you mentioned were an e commerce company with a shop. I store and stripe and a few other things. And i'm fully wired up with mozart data. Now i have a question okay. Great i can write some sequel queries. How do i know the schema. And what kind of opportunities do i have to cut between or joined between those data sets so a lot of the inspiration for mozart comes from a quote of a former boss of mine. And there's this this line that i've always loved which but she says is that data scientists spend ninety five percent of their time cleaning data and five percent of their time complaining about cleaning data and they basically never spend time doing data science and obviously the punch line of the joke is. You're expecting them to say fiber so work but it's actually not even that so a lot of what a good transform layer is is basically the ability like you said to explore the data to understand essentially the columns in the tables and what the definition of like what ki- business definitions actually mean in in in terms of sequel so what are what are transform layer is essentially one. That's easy to do those things. Things that practitioners due to explore your tables you know and also to then clean up your data by by writing those transforms scheduling them released. Let's unpack a little bit more transformed process. Let's say that. I'm a data engineer. And i'm at the helm of mozart data. And i've got some very custom need you know there's something as the data flows through. Wanna do some aggregation. How do i get in there and get the system to help me with that. I mean basically a transform anything you can do in sequel. If you can rate you know you can write a sequel query in your toll and that result is going to be useful for more than five minutes in our tool. it's very cut and paste that you can run it and then you can schedule it however often you want you want to run and will do things like You know will automatically parse your sequel to show you the data lineage. So that you can see if if some transformation breaks say you'll get a notification but then you can also see what what else depended on this. What might have broken because this broke or generally more importantly you can look back and see you know if nobody changed the code in this. It shouldn't have broken unless something upstream of it broke so kind of being able to see the leading edge of how your data is flowing from the time it lands from your sas tools until it's in you know what would you might think of as your production is tables..

"You there. Danpilla and peter welcome to software engineering daily. Great to be here. Well the kick things off. Tell me a little bit about how the two of you guys got connected. How'd you first meet. We'll dan and i met over twenty years ago when we were both in college. Dan's best friend in high school was my college roommate so on a trip down to duke. Dan and i ended up meeting each other and then we lived in boston together. And then later we lived in berkeley together. We've known each other for over twenty years for the last kind of fifteen. We've both been bouncing around different technology companies across silicon valley and then last year at the start of the. We decided to found most data together. Dan and i also co-founded hot sauce company together that we're really proud of about twelve years ago. We started baking hot sauce. The world's first and greatest big flavored hot sauce so for ten years. We were hot sauce entrepreneurs and now we've pivoted to the data space fulltime very cool. Why don't generally see a lot of overlap between the two industries. Tell me a little bit about some of each of your backgrounds in the data world. Sure i've i'm more of a data engineer. Pete is more of a did analysts data scientist. I've worked oliver. The bay area generally startups. That are a little bit smaller. Founded a few companies have been in early engineered if you companies. I generally prefer working organizations twenty or fewer people. I've done some data science myself. But but more often i'm sort of the engineer alongside folks who are doing analysis and i really enjoyed building building tools to help them do their job better. And i've been leading in running analytics teams had mostly late stage startups and in the past only late stage startups could really take advantage of all the data that they were generating. So i've generally built teams and data stacks and data tooling at late startups. Like play them and yarmur and benefits and open door and most recently ease. What have you guys seen changing in the data landscape over the time. You've been in the industry. So i think the data landscape has has massively changed. I hate to do the back in my day. But i'll i'll start there back. In my day. To get your data pipelines going. It would require hiring a few data engineers spending a lot of money on fancy database essentially buying a large contract that that really locked you in and today i think the biggest change is that to get started with data instead of building. Everything a lot of times you can get away with buying or buying for a long amount of time and the other part is that you need. Many fewer did engineering resources than before. I think the the biggest change is that the by solutions have just gotten so much better so much more standard and now basically people can start a data team with basically a credit card. And that's to me a giant change in in data tooling and then of course you know the the obvious things like they're more data professionals similarly a. There's a lot more data being generated collected but also it's become table stakes. You know when when. Dan and i were starting careers. The types of companies that would hire data. People were like google today. You know you talk to most seeds. They start ups. they're already thinking about hiring. Not just like say someone out of college to analyze the data that they're creating but like actually a full fledged data professional at a pretty early stage because data has become table stakes for competing in the standard sort of categories of embiid sas in in dc. It's really even just the reporting of it has become table stakes raising series seed series. Am beyond. i'd i'd add to that that there's a lot more people that are comfortable in tool in things like writing sequel and answering their own questions so people that would never call themselves a data engineer or data analyst. But they've they've picked up sequel over the years Just to be better at their job And they're able to announce sort of t- take advantage of a lot of these advances as well. So what is mozart data. And where does it fit into the landscape. Data is the easiest way to spin up a modern data stack. What that means is that we manage yell for you. We provide you a managed snowflake warehouse and we provide a layer doing transforms so that in under an hour you can get up and running with a world class stack that late stage companies would be implementing using you can really do it with no did engineering team. So the way that we fit into the landscape is we try to bring together the best thing class pieces in the necessary pieces and the types of pieces that real practitioners ended up using. We try to put that all under one roof or or one throat to choke. So i imagine i think of the modern technology company raven really any company. They probably have a long list of sas services. They're using something for accounting maybe something for. Hr add onto that probably stripe and a few other things and we now have all these silo data sources. How does mozart data helped me with those. So that's exactly at. There's this sort of incredible explosion in sas tools but a lot of the sort of winners of these spaces are becoming quite evident and writing the extracting load from a tool like stripe today basis solve problem. And i think the idea is that data has power in these silos. So you can go to strike or you can go to shop afyon. You can look at account of your customers but what you really want to do is actually bring all this data together. So data becomes really valuable for making like insight or or or.

She was composing music but there are no surviving examples of it. Well we know came from her brother in a letter. dated seventeen. seventy seven from one wolfgang was in rome. He noted quote my dear sister. I am an awe that you can compose so well in a word. the song you wrote is beautiful quote. There's also speculation that she may have collaborated on some of the early compositions of her brother when they were on their world tour one lingering question that music historians have asked is if maria ana was a better musician than her brother in one of his letters. Leopold wrote quote not a role. No longer suffers by comparison with the boy for. She plays so beautifully that everyone is talking about her and admiring her execution and quote many of the surviving fliers promoting their performances across europe had maria ana as the star of the act well wolfgang was unquestionably the better composer. It's highly likely that maria ana was the better instrumentalists. It wasn't so much. That wolf game was bad but that she was just really really good. Wolfgang went on to fame in vienna struggled financially died at the age of thirty five. He was stubborn and rebellious with his father. For the rest of leopold's life.

"Twenty seven th seventeen fifty-six wolfgang amadeus mozart was born in the town of salzburg in what was then the holy roman empire while he is a celebrity. Which makes the story interesting. This story is not about him. it's about his older sister. Maria ana who was born four and a half years before her brother wolfgang however for this story to truly make sense we have to take one more step back and talk about their father. Leopold mozart leopold was a very well educated man for the time for an augsburg. He attended to local jesuit school where he graduated. Magna coup mlada there. He developed an interest in all academic things including philosophy and science..

"Fundamentally changing the relationship between a piece of music and its audience right so you get the rise of the conductor so even the conductor become someone is a you get you get these in a way you could say you get these substitute authorities for the author might so the conductor becomes a prime player. Right in the way music is produced. The composer becomes the composer. Not the performer So that has the tendency or that had the tendency to elevate the composer right as being above performance not not directly related with performance and so the work becomes the work. I mean in the same sense that we read a book and we taxed right. That's that's the work okay but it of course it isn't the work that's an e text attacks that we read the same thing with music but that will they ship gets lost in the nineteenth century and it has the biographical implication then of making mozart's solely a composer and then having to explain what are the presumed by graphical facts and and the end result is the separation of mozart from everyday life. You mentioned that the sort of biographical approach to motza has largely been just about music. And oh but obviously there's you can imagine somebody who had the exposure that he did and the traveling that that he did with his dad when he was younger then must be far more his life than than than is is constrained by music is infinitely more to his life than than than than just music. And i think that that the that's exactly the point that You know i hope. I'm working towards And if i had a recommendation it would be. Unfortunately it's incomplete. There is an english edition of translation. Mozart lettuce from the nineteen thirties That is unfortunately incomplete in the sense that For instance the story. I told about building this gate through the mountain tunnel through the mountain at salzburg is not included because The translator decided that that was unimportant. Okay right so you know this kind of selective. Editing has contributed to The idea that mozart was not engaged with everyday life. And then all the kinds of things that we're saying are interesting that he must have been exposed to that's got lost nevertheless There are additions of letters out there that are well worth reading. I mean i. If i were as i say gonna recommend something it would be to try and find some editions and i could recommend some That give the letters in full. And and we've through and you know i i don't mean to blow my own horn here and two thousand six. I did a selection of letters for penguin. It's called mozart life and letters and we made a point of including all letters not editing them down and removing on musical stuff and the reaction that i get more than any other is that it's like reading and a pistol area novel have this real life unfolding in front of you on real life. That's engaged not only with the kind of musical side but with everything And it's captivating reading the mozart and his father. Were very good letter. Writers very very articulate very elegant writers right. so you know the kind of elegance of mozart's written prose I would certainly relate to the elegance of his music. I recommend reading something that You know gives a kind of unedited unexpurgated view of what the motorist actually wrote about. Because.

"Adopted before. Do you feel like you know muslim differently. To how other academics do i. I know that my academic work is in large part different from what other people do on mozart. I was told when i was a graduate student. In a way I was warned. Let's say that you know the more you get into it. The more you develop a personal relationship With with whatever it is you're setting so it it becomes really impossible to in a way be objective ultimately. It's a it's a subjective relationship. So i give credit to everyone else who sees mozart in their own special way Yeah it's different. I but but but i i learned a lot. Some scholars who love most are just as much as i do. And they have their specific takes on how to do the research and what should be done and let the kind of broader framework is and it means just as much to them as it means to me so The only thing i'd say is that i may be here things differently but Everyone has their own successful way of dealing and relating to zero absolutely. I'm an obviously a career full of muzzle. What what do you feel like is sort of the most interesting or the most controversial thing that you discovered about about. What's up That's that's not an easy question because It depends on what you mean by discovery. I mean not what you mean. Yeah i mean this is as if as in you you personally have discovered something for votes for academia as in something just a discovery for yourself or a fact that you didn't know about motza that was a bit shocking to you or interest in. Yeah okay i mean. Yeah in the academic sense. It's the thing that i discovered struck me. Most is the interrelationship of sources Okay and the way a can change the way we do things and so as a kind of recommendation for saying in on. I make my graduate students. Do this guy look at every single source. I mean have one. Graduate student had one graduate student who's now teaching at sheffield. Who really want to work on my fair lady. Because you've been a broadway fan forever. And i said you know great sure you know pursue what you want to do but just make sure you look at all the sources and this has led him a fantastic direction. I mean he really is now. i think.

The History and Development of Oral Torah

"Today i wanna understand the history of the transmission tower and a little bit about the nature of the transmission and the perpetuation of torah. How torah evolve. How tour was innovated. How torah change for moses until today of course that's a big subject and we're gonna only take a small piece out of it because it's very vast but we're going to give the the outline of how torah change and how it developed until today Mental today but give the the the inside the big picture of how these things work now. The first mission on practice of os tells us that the torah was transmitted from osha at sinai motion gets from god and then he passes it off to joshua with this means is that moshe passed the baton of leadership the responsibility of maintaining the accuracy in the perpetuation. The torah he passed onto the next leader of the generation namely to joshua and after tasha chorus he led the people with great skill and he passed onto the elders and the elders to the prophets and the prophets. Pass it onto the men of the great assembly. This mission of the first michigan avas actually covers around the thousand years from the time of moshe until the beginning of the second temple era around three hundred and fifty years before the common era rambam actually enumerates a more comprehensive list. He gives us the forty generations all the way from moses until arrive ashi the compiler of the babylonian talmud now over the course of these centuries and these generations we're gonna have change the torah development innovation of the torah learn about the dynamism of torah. What changed and of course what. Stay the same. And i think this will illuminate are subject in general the divinity of torah and thrilling understand. The relationship with we have today the core of which we got from moses at sinai and all the things that were added and what is the nature of those things that were added. And how does it relate to us today so we spoke about moshe already in the past. He of course received the torah sinai. Anything just get the laws. He got the details the principles the nuances and over the course of the forty years in the wilderness. He conveyed those principles and those details the people but the tells us that there were parts of moshe's transmission that he did not receive from god. The thomas in the of shabas page thirty a moshe rubbing mozart master. Gaza are comedies aeros. He decreed several decrees and he enacted several ordinances and behold they are upstanding there immutable forever. This i think adds another layer to our discussion of torah.

Here's a first look at Apple's $549 AirPods Max headphones

"I wanna talk to you about the airpods max. There was many rumors this fall that these were coming and being mid december. It looked like maybe we're not gonna get it before. Two thousand twenty one but no early on tuesday morning apple announced and released the airpods max. They went up for sale. I think it was like eight thirty in the morning and to everyone's shock and awe and let's just talk about now five hundred and fifty dollar price tag for the airpods. Max i would love to have your initial thoughts not only on the price tag but on the name. Because i kind of wish. They went with studio because the rumored codename airpods studio because they're over the your headphones with the cups. Noise cancelling airpods max. I don't know it sounds a little funny. What do you think william. I did as she laughed when i saw the name but only because apple keeps used to keep everything secret and now everything seems to come out but they hit us with a new name. We weren't expecting and that did the same with the apple a. m water. It is like there's a naming department that can keep a secret. I agree studios san sense better so these headphones they're very expensive. They're five hundred and fifty dollars despite that they're basically sold out until march if you try to buy a pair now it'll say twelve to fourteen weeks shipping time so even despite the price very popular you can actually go and watch him hd. And i just actually have these. They did initial videos unboxing and some initial thoughts. I'll put those links in show notes as well just kind of a quick specs. These are over the ear cups headphones controls on these. It is all physical controls. There's a large digital crown on one of the earcups that you'll use to adjust volume or you can press it down for siri. And then there's also another button to go from transparency to noise cancelling mode so they have a lot of the features of the airpods pro. They have spatial audio. They can do dolby. Atmos and seven point. One surround virtually in the headphones. So that's all very cool but a couple of the noticeable omissions will say no power brick in the box so with your five hundred and fifty dollar headphones. You do not get a powerbook to charge you. Do get a cable. You get a usb c a lightening cable so you can charge it with one of the twenty usb c charging that apple will sell you but it also does not come with the cable to physically connect these headphones to an audio source. If you would like that you have to pay an additional thirty five dollars for a lightning. Two three and a half millimeter cable to plug into an audio source and again the fact that they went with lightning on instead of usb bbc. I'm not sure i feel about that. But those are the omissions and again on that price tag at least put the cable in there. I don't know that's just me. What do you feel wind. Packwood's and i agree with you. That seems wrong. I know we got loose. Packers have old ones. So i don't know how much use they would be i. It never occurred to me to think about a physical connection with this their wireless headphones release anything else. But actually yeah. If i am a musician pro use a full who. This is a bargain but a worthwhile cost. I'm likely to want to better connection wireless bluetooth so yeah on quite taken aback. Especially if you cross into that audio file realm and one of things. I'm going to do with it I did order a pair though becoming tuesday. So i'll be able to talk about him on next week's episode personally but i'm actually a classical music fan. I don't think i've ever share this with amish on the podcast. But i'm a classical trumpet player. That's my wife degree. yes i love. Actually listening to classical music. Believe it or not and so. I'm very curious to see how these sound. On some of those mozart requiems and brahms symphonies at to see the audio quality is really up to snuff. But for five hundred fifty dollars should sound amazing. You know per se. Obviously this is in comparison and in competition with headphones. Like the sony w.h. Xm fors which usually cost like three hundred. Three hundred and fifty dollars was like attuned dollar premium for these and the bose noise cancelling headphones seven hundred are very popular. Those are around three hundred and forty dollars. So you're getting two hundred to two hundred and fifty dollar premium to pay for these airpods. Max so i really hope have to imagine that the sound quality is excellent. But you're also paying for apple's features like the h. One chips the ability to the noise. Cancelling connect your devices seamlessly switch just like other airpods and airpods pro another cool feature to the cups. The ear cushions that are on the headphones are actually connect magnetically. And so if you want to replace the earcups for whatever reason they come off very easily and attach very easily as well and hd shows that had his video looks pretty satisfying and you can also get replacement ear cushions again. Not cheap but seventy bucks on apple you can actually order them now in the apple store and on their website but you can get replacement cushions for seventy dollars again in the future if you need them and you can mix and match colors. There's actually a cool chart you know if you will have to get the space gray headphones and put some blue cushions on it. You can be fancy like that if you'd like but again you're paying a premium for all these. I don't know. I'm curious to try them. But these don't tempt you at all as i once used the bose actions that you mentioned don. I was very impressed on. I do like us. I'm more of a malla guide. The mets on no. It doesn't tempt me. Except there is one thing this one specification you've just kind of lewd to skipped a very good. That is crucial. What color did you buy on. I won't with space gray because the size of these. I mean they're large. They're over the ear headphones. And i like to be discreet when i'm around other people the rare times that happens and so white white was tempting. But i don't have so much you know every other airpod is white and i didn't like the green or the pinkish red color. Blue was the only other one that tempted me. But i don't know. I just went discreet. I want black now. You wouldn't touch. That's what it is so next day. Jiang at a party somewhere. Nobody's gonna notice because she didn't have blue headphones. That's what i would have gone full blitz. Obviously the blue did look very nice. i was tempted. Also attempt to engrave these. I've actually never engraved an apple product. I don't know why i just have never done. It and i was very close to engraving these. But i had a moment of. I don't know what to put on them. And i know shipping. Times are gonna slip. So i just four went the engraving and just sorta without. But i'm curious william. Have you ever engraved an apple product. No because of always thoughts. And i'm gonna pass it on somebody else or might resell it to somewhere right. So it's been like having a set to somebody on their name. Just you break up with something. It feels wrong in a weird way. It feels like it's studies the the pristine finish of the device as well especially if you wanna resell it. That definitely makes it more difficult but I know you have tons of tattoos. You have sleeves don't you. Have you have tattoos all over please. I'm not illustrated unless you know what you said about coming up with something to say. I know whatever. I had written on me. I would change my mind magic instantly and want to me. I did work with a young writer. Who said she was aiming to have some text for every significant part of her life tattooed on and i wished to long life and much fatness so that you have room okay. Well staying on the grieving for a second. I saw that in addition to letters you can actually engrave emojis on apple products. Now you can choose emojis if you'd like. So here's my question to you william. If you could engrave any emoji apple device what emoji do you think you would choose. Would it be the winking smiley face sticking out the tongue or would it be money flying away. What do you think is the money involved here with page to do this. I give you twenty bucks. Yeah i need more need more. I need a lot more needs to pay for the hedge funds and then i feel that's nice cost parlance I'm i'm a writer. I can't bear emojis next. Particularly i had a message from a singer songwriter. I profoundly admire but it was all in emojis. And i have no idea what she was saying. It was just. I think it's gonna start communicating with you william. I'm gonna do all emojis from now on well good by sending emerges did not sending me pat. That's where you're going wrong. You sending the wrong listen. Listen we'll see when that when the next ipad comes out the battery life on my ipad. I don't know what's going on but it is I don't know. It's a little rough. When i edit podcast. It's great at any at any other time. So that new model comes out. I don't know we'll see you keep playing this long game gas lighting me. I'll just send it off without even thinking about it.

"Instead of being paid to glorify the church and nobility like so much of Europe, the art in the low countries was paid for by the wealth of the Protestant merchant class are guides are Nico Febrile who lives near Bruges in West Flanders and Jodi angles door than she lives in Harlem North Holland? Nicole Yoda. Thanks for being here. Thank you. Thank you for having us. So from your perspective as a guide in the Netherlands ca you see that divide in the art world? Well, of course, it's a lot about the culture of country and like you said, our culture is all about brought stations and we had thorough formation and that are really created a big difference between some art in other countries in us. So we have very basic churches. They're all stripped down from older statues but also are monster pieces re rarely. See. Any Christian. Seems but we always have the Merchan's and because we had a Dutch republic very soon after. Yeah. So that is of you. If you see a bread of his biblical theme, it'll be from the Bible but it won't be from some Pope or something like that. Yes. If you think about you, you mentioned the reformation you have a huge church on the main square in Harlem that was a Catholic Church and it was completely painted all the pillars were painted and everything now when you go in yeah. Washed away whitewashed. Yes. Whitewashed. Yeah So a reformation came we had iconoclast where all the distance took it down and the art was little gone, and how do you recognize what the Protestants really brought into the churches was music and that is how they really lived up churches. So in Harlem, you have this giant organ. which more than five thousand pipes you can still go in and listen to it every Thursday In the summer periods. Then you have a concert for free you can visit and you can hear his Oregon play you can just. How old's organised, we've come so a ten year old Mozart played in this. So it's a it's a very different experience and it's very beautiful. So maybe four or five hundred years ago it was Catholic and then you have the reformation it becomes Protestant partisans come in there and they were kind of sort of kind of mean her. Very extreme. Throughout. All the statues they busted lot of the windows they painted everything white and they put up this amazing organ that goes it's his tallest building. It goes way to the top of those arches. Wild, it is wild and that's something that when you know the story behind, it makes a little more sense when you have a good information, know every Thursday there's a free concert Nico when you think about the Great Dutch painters who comes to mind. Of course, he think about people like don't finance house to meet. My personal is Yon Stein. Johnston because he has these scenes of just people having fun at home and it's sometimes a bit double if what he wants to say with paintings. inning. Is it the warning that you shouldn't be so? Joyful maybe in life. Or they're just fun to watch because there is there's a lot of folk way stem. Yeah. It's like I'm like don't be wasteful or if you gossip things bad things will happen or there's all these little little lessons about life but not really preaching from the Church nobody you could interpret it that way and people could hang it in their houses and say, this is what we shouldn't be doing. Right but I look at them as okay. They're having fun to me. It's a little intimate look at life for hundred years ago or whenever he owns Dean was painting, but that's a good name to. Note Yawn Seen S. T. E. N. S. these when I go to a gallery in the Netherlands I, see a lot of small paintings by a lot of people whose names I don't know rather than a few big paintings by people who are superstars and highly paid, and you got to think it's a different sort of clientele. If you're painting a King or some bishop, you can paint something big and really expensive. But in the Netherlands when they got rid of the king and they got rid of the pope, they got to have the open market business people for their clientele and it needs to be affordable. So you have small appreciate art. Or. Not Actually N- definitely. But like you said it would be anonymous or from the same workshop or around that's what you would read. You see the values of the day there I, mean, above the dining room table, you might have a still life. Yes. Still lifes is not a personal favourite, but that's something that you will find a lot. Would you see in still life because of fruits, baskets, fish 'cause it's the Netherlands. So they would have a love of fish in there as well. Easy to catch

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Janissary Music

"I'm Naomi Moon Welcome to classics for. Kids. Let's start this show off with a bang. You. Know how? When a certain kind of music catches on whether it's rap or jazz or Latino suddenly you hear it all over well, all over Europe in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries you would have heard Turkish flavored music like this marked by Ludwik von Beethoven. A very reasonable question would be if Beethoven was German, what was he doing writing Turkish music? The Sultan who ruled Turkey used to have a very select group of guards called Jan Aseries, actually, jams areas, what the Turkish term for new army sounded like to European ears like most armies. The Janice series had a band and since this was a Turkish army, the Janice every band used Turkish instruments like bass drums, triangles, and cymbals when the Sultan of Turkey since January, bands to Europe people went nuts over the exotic sound of those instruments hey, couldn't get enough of Turkish. Music. European composers knowing what their audiences wanted to hear started writing. Turkish. Sounding pieces and even set some of those pieces in Turkey This is the overture to Mozart's opera the abduction from the Seraglio. Seraglio. Was the Turkish Sultan's palace a palace which he kept US sizable Harem of wives. Plural. Very poor. Mozart wasn't the only composer to set an opera in Turkey German composer. Carl Maria. Von Vaber did to and he even gave his opera a Turkish name. Abu Hassan. And Turkish sounds crept into orchestra music too. For Instance Haydn's symphony number one. Kendrick. Since people associated the sound of drums, triangles and cymbals with Turkish army bands that Haydn symphony came to be known as the Military Symphony. The best symbols in the world are still made by the same family that made them in Haydn's day the Zil jains, the name zillion is Turkish for symbol maker a Turkish Sultan gave it to the first symbol maker in the family almost four centuries ago today zillions live in Massachusetts where they make the symbols you here in rock bands and symphony orchestras. That's from Wellington's victory by Beethoven. After. The FAD for January music died down the cymbals bass drums and triangles didn't go back to Turkey those instruments. Oh, their place in today's orchestras and bands to the eighteenth century European craze for Turkish music of all the composer's latched onto the sound of the January band I think Beethoven did it best? My favorite bit of January music is tucked into the middle of the last movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. That Sound is a controversy soon, the lowest pitched woodwind instrument there is it's acting almost like a bass drum. Back when January music was popular, you could buy a piano equipped with a special. January pedal by thumping down on it, you could accompany yourself with your own personal triangle and drums percussion section. Unfortunately today, those pianos are only found in museums when both amodio Mozart composed his Turkish Rondo he managed to get the piano to imitate Janice drums even without a special pedal. That's Mozart's Turkish Rondo. Now that you know about the Turkish part to find out what a Rondo is, join me next time for classics for kids.

An Excerpt from the book Flirting with Darkness by Ben Courson

"An excerpt from the book flirting with darkness. Ben. Carson. Weapon number three, the magic number of greatness. I got to a point in my struggle with depression where something needed needed to change must suffering. So badly, I finally decided to do something about it. The ten thousand hour rule saved my life. His Book Outliers Malcolm Glad well demonstrated that to be truly greeted anything. You have to put in ten thousand hours of practice. People such as world chess champion Bobby. Fischer businessman Bill Joy, and IBM founder Bill Gates are among the many examples. Glad. While gives of people who excelled because they accelerated they focused and worked hard and gave at least ten thousand hours to becoming the best at what they did. Glad will show that whether you want to be a fiction writer or master criminal. Hockey player or a pianist ten thousand hours was the magic number of greatness. Bent my mind to that goal is a writer Manspeaker. A resolved to stop wasting my energies, processing psychological trauma and to go on a diametrically opposed direction. Instead of disappearing over why dreams weren't coming to pass, I decided to commit myself to working my fingers to the bone to ensure they did. Psychologists, John Hayes quote looked at how long it took the best composers of all time to create their first grey work. He found that nobody including Mozarts was a child prodigy had produced a piece of work of any significance until about ten years after they had I, taken music no amount of innate talent even in a field of genius such as music could overcome the years of practice necessary to Korea work someone may be talented. They may be lucky but they still have to go through ten years of practice in order to become a master and quote. When Churchill came to power during World War Two he said this as he was being inaugurated into office as prime. Minister quote. I. Offer you nothing save blood, toil tears, and sweat and quo. Lecture Chill Ready to go to battle anew, the path will be difficult PROC- ready to claim own finest hour. Getting better stars, which is getting off your tuition in doing something. So I did. My goal was to become a writer and a speaker put in the needed hours. My nearly worked myself to death, but it was infinitely better than brooding found the effort. Cathartic in fulfilling my spirit's began to lift. I figured I had two options number one either get discouraged that my dreams were not coming pass or number to spend the effort of getting prepared for when they did. Legendary preacher Charles spurgeon advised students to stop worrying about when they would get their shot at speaking and concentrate instead on their ability, and they'll let God take the opportunity in other words quit fretting over the how and focus on the what I took these words to heart and focused on my skill set as I improved my craft, our English word amateur comes from a French Italian an line route which means to love an obvious works when he loves the process and it feels good a professional is someone who worked seven days a week whether he feels like it or not. Today. My TV show hope generation is on twenty different networks more than one hundred and eighty countries and radio shows heard on more than four hundred stations daily. I get to speak in stadiums and arenas. My quote unquote overnight success came through hours of hard work. How you'll spend your ten thousand hours may be different from how I spend mind but you'll find as I did a clear focus and a way of getting off the existential treadmill of despair, transform your life but the age of twenty one, the average American has put ten thousand hours of practice into computer and video games when I use those hours for something more productive. How hard you hustle in the darkness determines how brightly you shine in the spotlight. To prepare for speaking to people I got really good at lecturing my furniture. My chairs were my captive audience I remember that Billy Graham. One said he got his start by preaching to alligators before he preached in stadiums. You have to start with a small stuff and work your way up. So I took every opportunity that presented itself. I spoke to classes of little kids and homeless shelters at old folks, homes, and to student clubs I volunteered to take the opportunities. Others turned down, I got lots of practice. When other speakers turned an organization or church down my said, yes I did this I several years Only the small minded person will refuse the small task for me if I had an audience of four people those enough to get some more practice to put in some more hours toward my ten thousand our goal. Jesus said that if you're faithful and a few small things, you'll be given responsibility over bigger ones Matthew Twenty five that sound good to me. Yes sometimes I did feel like surface the tragic here of Greek mythology who had to roll a boulder of a hill only to see roll back down then roll it back up again only for it to roll back down again repeatedly, I'll stubborn in my pursuit it was a great weapon against despair to keep working in spite of how I felt, which puts me in the mind of a scene from Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings in the First Book of that trilogy the Fellowship of the Ring, a band of warriors is commission travel to the ends of the Earth to destroy the evil ring of power by casting it into mount doom. During their long journey. Gandalf who was their leader was thought to be killed in the minds of Maurya in response airborne stepped up to lead the band in his stead amid his grief and despair he cried out farewell Gandalf what hope have we with you then he turned to the fellowship and said, we must do without hope let us gird ourselves and weep no more come. We have a long road. Like that trek to mount doom healing is usually a long journey. We normally don't start feeling better overnight sometimes, we must go on when we feel absolutely no hope. Our quest leads down a winding path and his sometimes fraught with trolls and Goblins and all manner of Dr Treasures. But psychological heroism is possible in such journey is were taking like Eric Gordon Frodo my set my foot upon my own path out of depression I gave them my flirtation with darkness and began to tread the road toward a grand purpose and it worked after many many years. The Dreams I had begun to despair finally came true new ones came into sight, but it all began by putting one foot in front of the other. If you allow yourself to just sit around and partly catatonic state stuffing yourself with junk food is a form of therapy and watching callous hours of television. You'll probably never start feeling better. But I. Tell You that you get off the couch and venture into the world to do something toward your goals. Things will start to change in your heart and mind if you pull yourself out of bed and get going on your dreams, that's how you'll will begin the journey to healing your broken spirit.

Mozart's Operas

"Welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi. Lewin. Both Con Amadeus Mozart wrote more beautiful music in his not quite thirty five year lifetime than a lot of composers who lived a lot longer one kind of music that fascinated Mozart from the time he was a kid was opera. Mozart I. said he wanted to write an opera when he was eight and when he was twelve, he did up through the very last year of his life. He continued composing operas. An opera is a stage work with costumes and sets that also includes music singing as an important part of the drama instead of speaking their lines, the characters sing them. Italy. Was the country where opera got its start. So Italian was the fashionable language for writing operas even in German speaking Austria where Mozart lived. But Go to kind of opera that's related to our Broadway musical. It's called the Zing Spiel a play with singing Austrians who didn't speak Italian could understand because it was in German just like in American musical theater, there are spoken lines that move the plot along but when the characters want to let you know what they're feeling, they sing about it or August. I have two favorite Mozart operas one in each language not city Figo Godot is Italian for the marriage of Figaro. This opera is based on a very famous, very revolutionary play about a servant Figaro who outsmarts his royal master. Since, there was still plenty of royalty around when the play was written. It was pretty daring. Some kings wouldn't allow it to be performed. At the beginning of the Opera Figaro is busy measuring his new bedroom, you can hear him counting five, ten, twenty in. Italian of course. Susannah the woman Figaro's going to marry tries to interrupt. She wants him to look at her bridal veil. You can hear in Mozart's music how hard it is forces Emma to get Figaro's attention. Figaro has some Great Arias or Solos in the opera when one of the characters is sent to the army and doesn't want to go figaro things about what it will be like ticked rate in his pants, he closed for a uniform and then marched to the mud. Nine. and. My other Mozart favorite is the magic flute heat Salva Fluid a Germans ing. SPIEL. In the magic flute, the Queen of the night represents evil dark forces and Rostro represents light and truth. It's brilliant how Mozart shows the contrast between them by having the Queen of the night fast loud and very high. While rostro music is slow deliberate and very. The. Most, fun character in the magic flute is Papa Gay No. The Bird Catcher I even named a cat after him. Papa John is always looking for a wife when he finds one, her name turns out to be Papa Gain A-, and they sing a wonderful using their names to investigate the birds he catches. Wish, I had time to play you more music from Mozart operas next week a kind of music so. In Mozart's bay that classical composers latched onto it to

You know maybe somebody in your class now imagine if that person couldn't be in class because starting at the age of five he or she was off performing for presidents, kings queens all sorts of world leaders. Well, that's what it was like to be both gung. Amadeus Mozart. Mozart was born in Salzburg Austria where his father leopold was a violinist and composer when Mozart junior was three, he climbed up to the keyboard and just started playing. That's when Mozart senior realized he had a genius on his hands. So he started the touring Mozart show he took his son both gun and his daughter Nano on the road to perform for royalty they went all over Europe. Sometimes staying away from home for years at a stretch everyone was amazed at how well the children played and especially at how well little both gone could improvise. That is makeup music on the spot using whatever tune they gave him. Votes, are composed his first piece when he was five had his first music published when he was seven and wrote his first opera at the age of twelve he was a Whiz at the keyboard and the violin most of Mozart's concertos for those instruments here for himself to play. Lose Friends with the best musicians of the day. So he wrote Concertos for their instruments to, for instance the French Horn. One friend played a newfangled instrument that Mozart. Loved the clarinet. A Concerts that he and other people put on Mozart wrote symphonies. And for celebrations he wrote serenade. When he worked for the Prince Archbishop of Salzburg the man who also employed his father Mozart composed religious music. Having, toured all over Europe as a child Mozart did not want to stay in Salzburg working for the Prince Archbishop when he grew up even though that's put his father wanted. So he moved to the big city of Vienna, which was full of music theatre and opera in Vienna Mozart married Constanza Vaber. He'd actually fallen in love with her older sister I and he tried to find steady work that he thought was worthy of how talented he was. Mozart had a hard time as an adult. He couldn't get over being a child prodigy the very talented kid back. Then grownup musicians were considered servants by the nobles who hired them, but kings and empresses had made a huge fuss over Mozart when he performed for them as a child so he didn't think of himself as a servant.

Fear Of Death Is Contagious In The Psychological Thriller 'She Dies Tomorrow'

"Our film critic Justin Chang says, she dies tomorrow feel surprisingly in tune with our present moment of unease. Everything you need to know going into sheet is tomorrow is pretty much right there in the title. This moody and more deadly funny psychological horror film opens on a young. Woman. Who Awakens one morning with a horrifying from edition of doom she believes that she's going to die tomorrow and it sends her into an eerily calm. Almost Zombie like trance. She wanders the rooms of her recently purchased lock home. She plays Mozart's requiem repeatedly on a record player and shops online for an urn to hold her cremated remains. She never explains why she thinks her death is imminent, but the look on her face is so grave and haunted that we find ourselves believing it to. The woman played by the excellent actress Caitlin she'll is named amy. Not. Coincidentally, that's also the name of the filmmaker amy scientists who has said that the movie was inspired by her own experiences with anxiety and her recognition of how easily that panic could affect those around her. And she dies tomorrow the fear of death proves contagious. The mere act telling someone that you're going to die tomorrow is enough to plant the idea that they are going to die tomorrow and so on and so on. The first person amy tells is her friend Jane played with a sharp comic edge by Jane Addams who thinks she's being ridiculous but the seed has been planted by the time Jane stops by her brother's house where a birthday party for her sister in law is in full swing she too has come to believe that she's going to die tomorrow. And once she voices this fear, the other party guests, it's only a matter of time before they also succumb. In the montage you're about to hear Simon's uses thunderously loud music written by Mondo boys and wild strobe lighting effects to achieve startling moments of operatic intensity. I'm going. To die. Tomorrow. Throughout the movie in these feverishly heightened intervals, Simon seems to be expressing level of horror that the characters themselves cannot. Jane's brother and sister in law. That's Christmas Gina and Katie Nolan do panic a little over what will happen to their daughter when they're both gone. But for the most part, everyone here tends to retreat into their own private moods showing little concern for others Jennifer Kim plays a party guest who abruptly breaks off a relationship something she'd been meaning to do for months. Her now ex boyfriend played by tune had been bay does something much more frighteningly impulsive. Interestingly no one really tries to ward off the crisis or even figure out what's going on a sense of futility sets in and stays there. There's something troublingly resonant for me about the characters inertia. Speaking as someone who's able to work from home and hasn't suffered so many have during the pandemic I'm not afraid of dying tomorrow but I recognize something of myself incitements as characters, the ones who retreat into a state of false calm maybe because screaming and expressing how they really feel might be too horrible or flat out exhausting to bear. I don't want to overstate the metaphorical implications of she is tomorrow, which was made well before the pandemic. But Simon's clearly has her finger on something about how people might respond or not respond to an invisible threat. She's made a fascinating disaster movie of the mind. This is the second feature scientists as written and directed seven years after her debut film. The lovers on the run drama sun don't shine. She's worked for more than a decade as an actor writer director and producer rooted in the independent film world, but with increasing forays into Hollywood. She's one of the key creative forces behind the TV series, the girlfriend experience, and you might also have seen her performances in recent studio thrillers like Alien Covenant and Pet cemetery a role that helped her finance this much lower budget horror movie. Depending on your persuasion, don't like she dies tomorrow might not sound like ideal pandemic viewing but I think one of the great virtues of the horror genre is that it can put our own fears into perspective. There can be enormous value in confronting our feelings of dread had on and feeling a sense of kinship with characters who are confronting there's to. Sign it's doesn't provide easy answers. She also doesn't tell us if her characters worries are justified. She closes the movie on a note, picked between serenity and alarm leaving us to wonder if the end is as near as it seems or tomorrow might, in fact, be another day.
