How to Listen to Music: A Free Course from Yale University | Open Culture
Taught by Yale professor Craig Wright, this course, Listening to Music, operates on the assumption that listening to music is "not simply a passive activity one can use to relax, but rather, an active and rewarding process." When we understand the basic elements of Western music (e.g., rhythm, melody, and form), we can appreciate music in entirely new ways. That includes everything from classical music, rock and techno, to Gregorian chant and the blues. -==- You can watch the 23 lectures above, on YouTube, or Yale's website, where you'll also find a syllabus and information on each class session. The main text used in the course is Listening to Music, written by the professor himself.

Wim Mertens Clairiere and other albums [DC]: Classical CD Reviews - July 2008 MusicWeb-International
Welcome to the select and intimate world of Belgian minimalism. Never heard of Belgian minimalism? This is not entirely surprising, since Wim Mertens has long been its lone representative and one-man pioneer. There may be others, but his name is the only one cited in Wikipedia, and is most likely to be the only one which you may have come across in your local record shop, wondered briefly what it was all about, and then passed on to something else. In fact, the chances are you will already have heard something by Wim Mertens, since his music has occasionally been plucked for use in some quite well-known commercials. Talking of being plucked, Mertens’ entire back catalogue is now being re-released from the Usura/les disques du crépuscule label by EMI Classics, and this first batch covers most of his work from the 1980s.

Wim Mertens
Wer bequeme Nettie-Musik mit Kunstanspruch erwartet ( = gehaltvoll schmusen mit Wim Mertens), wird bei einigen seiner Arbeiten ins Stottern geraten. Als kleine Einführung in das Werk von Mertens (und eine Warnung vor den exzentrischeren Veröffentlichungen) hier eine Stippvisite in meine Plattentruhe!
