This is one of those podcast episodes that will blow your mind. For real. Shane Parish is speaking with Alexander Shelley about #TheArchitectureOfMusic. These are the topics that they cover, check this out:

(Shane Parish said it best, quoting him for the next bullet points)

  • How Alexander prepares himself before stepping on stage (and how his process changes depending on the music the orchestra will play)
  • Why live performances create a powerful and almost spiritual experience
  • The delicate relationship between audience, orchestra, and conductor and how balancing them is like a beautiful dance
  • How to manage the egos, personalities, and different playing styles of 80 world-class musicians on any given night
  • How the structures of music have changed over the years, and how our ears still recognize shapes and patterns in any piece from any era
  • Why Beethoven’s 5th Symphony is so popular (Alexander breaks down the DNA of the song and how all music has its own unique “cell structure.” This alone is worth listening to the interview)
  • Why the sciences and the arts are inseparable and should be studied, practiced and revered hand in hand
  • How familiarity with music history allows you to appreciate and enjoy any piece of music (even current pop hits) at a whole new level
