music and architecture

glaasgow art school charles rennie mackintosh copyright kerry dexter

Architecture and music both shape the spaces in which we go about our lives, and in which we think, learn and discover. That is as true, I find, on a quiet path in the country as in the bustle of streets in the city.

Listened to any good buildings lately?

When I am in Glasgow, I walk by this building several times a day. It is the Glasgow School of Art, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh

music to go along with these ideas
Music Road: Three Fiddle CDs for Fall
Music Road: Road Trip Music in Alabama: bluegrass, faith, & architecture
Music Road: Carrie Newcomer: faith and laughter

Interesting! Near Luxor, the ancient Memnon Colossi used to produce musical sounds, apparently as a result of a giant earth quake some 2000 years ago. Seems a Roman emperor repaired them and the music stopped. A bit sad that.

Ahhh, I love that building. I find that the city and the pace of travel, whether commuting, flying, or walking, informs the music I listen to. You could do a whole NYC walking tour set to Simon & Garfunkel songs@
