Music and the Brain…in Paris!

April 10th, 2009 · No Comments · music and the brain

Well, I’m always looking for connections between my life, my brain, and the music I love. My brain has really been enjoying Paris and all the sights, smells, tastes and sounds!

Yesterday, I went to meet my friend Skip Sempe, harpsichordist extraordinaire, who now lives in Paris.  He and I were both interviewed for the documentary on Wanda Landowska, “Uncommon Visionary,” that was based on my dissertation about “Wanda Landowska and the Revival of the Harpsichord.”  He gave me a tour of his fabulous instrument collection and the clavichord above is one of them!  Notice the gorgeous hand-painted panels!

There are certain senses that are activated in a certain way, only in Paris. These have come back to me powerfully on this trip to Paris which is my first extended visit since 1987. Before that, it was 1974! Anyway, take a look at these photos and you’ll see what my 5 senses have been processing over the past 11 days! Enjoy!
