Use a 'Productivity Song' to Train Your Brain to Work  Lifehacker

Photo: Malte Wingen (Unsplash) Anyone who has ever seen a movie montage knows the importance of a motivating soundtrack. We may not have a professional editor to splice together footage of us training for a boxing match or studying for the bar exam, but we can pick our own music to help with our productivity. There is plenty out there on how and why listening to certain types of music allows us to get more work done, but I took things one step further and trained my brain to associate certain music with work time. Technically, this isn’t something I initially did on purpose, but it worked, ...

Harry Christophers and The Sixteen: How the choral group found their way to the nation’s heart - The Independent

Harry Christophers and The Sixteen: How the choral group found their way to the nation’s heart  The Independent

One of the glories of classical music in Britain today lies in its a cappella choral groups, each of which has its own distinct character. I Fagiolini turn their concerts into music theatre, while the Tallis Scholars pride themselves on the austere grandeur of their unaccompanied performances. The USP of the Renaissance-music ensemble Stile Antico lies in the fact that, both onstage and off, they are a democracy with no leader or conductor. If Harry Christophers and his group The Sixteen have a calling card, it is to be found in the unfailing excellence of their singing, and in the steadine...

Madonna: Madame X review – her most bizarre album ever  The Guardian

We all get old, but never at the same age. Some of us are old when we’re children, bringing briefcases to school and talking to adults at family parties; others leave uni with the thrill that they never have to go clubbing again. Most of us think we’re doing pretty well, then we find ourselves nodding appreciatively at something in a Boden catalogue and suddenly death is real. For years, Madonna outpaced all of this. In 1996, Evita looked like ushering in her middle age, but she did an about turn, delivering convincing, idiosyncratic trip-hop on Ray of Light (1998) and convincing, idiosyncr...
