Five Things #84 / by Ross Farley

Every Wednesday I share five things I've liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s Five Things…

  1. An interesting article on the increasing use of found sounds and field recordings in music. Inspired by this, I think I'm going to record a lot more of the sounds I hear out in the world around me in future! A project for 2018 perhaps?

  2. Another great observation from Derek Sivers: Obvious to you. Amazing to others.

  3. Word of the week, Apophenia: "... the tendency to attribute meaning to perceived connections or patterns between seemingly unrelated things."

  4. Your estimated lifespan as a grid. I think this pretty cool, but I could see how you might find it a little depressing!

  5. This week's music recommendation is Particles by Ólafur Arnalds (featuring Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir). I can't wait to see Ólafur play the Royal Albert Hall in May next year.

That's all for this week. If you enjoyed it, subscribe and you'll get the next one delivered to your inbox.

ps. As it's Christmas, I'm going to take the next week off — what a treat! This means there'll be no Five Things next Wednesday. But fear not, Five Things will return the following week!
