Sayings of Kyle Gann

August 14, 2008

I came across Kyle Gann’s homepage this morning. I particularly liked his page on Kyleisms, his sayings in this classroom. My favorite one is this:

Webern was a musicologist who became a composer. Bartok was a composer who became a musicologist to get material for his music. I’m a composer who became a musicologist to get a job.

I feel like the computer scientist who became a musicologist to be unemployed! Maybe I should have tried composing instead.
