Kate Bush’s Before the Dawn

Kate Bush, 2014

Kate Bush, 2014

2,447 words

Outside London’s Eventim Apollo the sign reads: “The KT Fellowship Presents: Before the Dawn: Sold Out” There is no mention of the name Kate Bush, but it fools nobody because news of her return to live performance has been so high profile and has often spilled over into hysteria.

A Broken Circle

Nicolas Poussin, A Dance to the Music of Time (Dance of Human Life),  1639

Why Music?
A Look at Art & Propaganda

Anne Vallayer-Coster, "Attributes of Music," 1770

Anne Vallayer-Coster, “Attributes of Music,” 1770

2,860 words

Music can influence our emotions and the quality of our judgments.

Our emotions play a key role in how we reason. If we are emotionally out-of-whack, then we will not be able to reason as effectively. Music is the art form that is most able to dissuade us from thinking critically.
