Using music to enter new spaces
The reliably interesting Oz Mix blog has two particularly good entries which should be read in sequence: An entry, inspired by a recent posting on this blog, This Is The Space Age, on entering new spaces, and a sequel, Music spaces, on how music can take us to different places and help us gain new insights. (My lame summaries don't do the blog entries justice; just read them.) Obviously, Robert Anton Wilson used Beethoven the way that Oz Fritz used music from the likes of the Rolling Stones and Eno and Byrne. There's a large overlap between music fanatics and RAW fans, so if you recognize yourself as a music nut these entries are must reads.
