There are 7106 languages on earth and yet there are a few universal languages that transcends the language barrier. In this episode we explore one of the first universal languages of human history: music.
My guest today is Clemency Burton-Hill. From underground DJ to the Creative Director at New York Public Radio, she is an author, a musician, and host of multiple podcasts including The Open Ears Project, Classical Fix, and Moments that Made Me. Her latest book, Year of Wonder helps readers explore and experience a new classical musical piece every day.
In this episode:
- Classical music has a bad rap for being stuffy, boring, and largely inaccessible. Clemency expands on what’s available, and how it’s really the soundtrack of our lives.
- The universality of music and how we use music to explore, express, and share.
- Of course, Clemency drops so many names of musical artists to explore who are crushing it today.
