Pain in the arm
:: Posted by zebanet1 on April 02, 2013
It is a pity that all that Gurdjeff stuff, tai chi, Alexander technique, callistenics and so on do not prevent or heal one from such pain (of course, we do not know in which condition Mr. Fripp would be without all this). Or does the first secondary have such effects? However, I wish you a speedy and total recovery.

There arenít any "official GC teachers" in your area that I know of, but there is a small circle with a couple of people that are involved. PM me at jbradleymusic at the google mail service, and I can put you in touch with one of them, who should be able to let you know the closest person available.

"I see abstractness as essential to the type of clarity possible in both math and music."
If I understand your meaning here I definitely agree. When creating a mathematical model of something (eg, a physical system or portfolio loss data) you kind of have to ignore the "noise" (which is after all part of the reality of the thing you are trying to model) and reach past it to model the core or essential behavior. You then can possibly re-add the íimperfectionsí or noise if you want, but often you donít need to if you have captured the underlying dynamic. I guess the strangest thing about the process is that you often donít worry a lot about why you believe behavior X can be reflected in math construct Y: If the numbers fit and if you can explain data you havenít yet seen then you basically stop worrying about whether itís somehow írealí or not.
You can, of course, be wrong, and only found wrong after having made decisions assuming the correctness of your model. That either sends you back to the drawing board or to the unemployment line.

Is that the same ES-335 that is seen in the photos of the original League Of Gentlemen?

From Mr Frippís diary of 13 March, under a photo of a math book: "This clarity of thinking is so at odds with the thinking of the music industry." But, happily, not at odds with music itself.
Of many possible parallels to note between music and mathematics, consider these quotes--
Bertrand Russell: "Mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know what we are talking about...".
Igor Stravinsky: "I consider that music is, by its very nature, essentially powerless to express anything at all...". (Stravinsky later said he would prefer to phrase it as "music expresses itself".)
I see abstractness as essential to the type of clarity possible in both math and music.

Just back from vacation and a welcome respite from ComputerWorld. I havenít gone back more than a few pages here to see what Iíve missed during the last week, so any Pavlovian flames on the Hackett topic have gone unread.
I do want to say that I appreciate the thoughtful considerations posted here regarding the hypothetical Hackett-led KC from 1974, however little I agree with them.
As for the person who claims that any record with "King Crimson" on the cover must be King Crimson, well, all I can say is, some are impressed with Alexanderís solution to the Gordian Knot, and others arenít. I am among those who arenít.

To the pair of Crafty guitarists i heard playing this evening while commuting in Fontana station, Barcelona... Thank you!.
I heard "21st century schizoid man" and "eye of the needle" echoing all over the place.
I slightly frustrated because i left home without phisical money.
Hope to catch this again.
