Now that I'm pretty much settled in my new home, it's about time I update this blog again with a new post! So far I really like it in my new place, I'm not sure what it is actually that I prefer this place above my previous home, but it just feels better. I guess it's the atmosphere in the city and my home itself that better fit my taste. Perhaps it's just because its a new place, and new impressions.
When I was moving around all these boxes I didn't had a lot of time left to check all posts of my friends here on MyOpera, so these last few days I browsed through all the old posts of everyone, and somewhere I noticed this video of Han Na Chang, a talented Cellist, playing a joyful piece "The Flight of Bumble Bee" composed by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. or watch on youtube
I noticed this is pretty fast! So I searched for more video's of people playing this piece, and I found lot of lovely madness! Do yourself a favour and check out these video's:
On violin you have this very nice one played by Itzhak Perlman, you can listen to The bumble bee on violin by Itzak Perman on youtube. It's very well played, but there is no video. So you should also check out this video of him playing Bazzini, which is actually a nicer piece and its a joy to see him play it seemingly effortless! or view on youtube
That's more then enough video's for now I would say!
Technicians often miss their target completely, because they try to rationalize everything. Trying to capture everything in numbers, they see the world through these numbers and make their calculations in order to find the answers they are looking for. This is a dangerous thing, since expressing everything in numbers just isn't possible. How to translate emotional values to hard figures? Of course you can, but you will most likely fail to do it well, and although the calculations may be perfectly valid, using the wrong initial values will result in false answers that do not work for society.
I thing this is the challenge for every scientist and technician is facing, open the hart and feel the real world before trying to convert everything to numbers. I think this video is a beautiful example of what I'm trying to say. I hope you enjoy this nice animation!
