How to Use 70 Minutes Wisely
waterfall has one of the most Raunchy Titles for a music post I've ever come across. "70 Short Minutes to Ecstasy", and I've left out the exclamation marks, purports to be an account of practicing Liszt at the piano, and it seems genuine enough, but I have to wonder what sort of fiction writing waterfall is doing in her spare time.

In all earnestness, I think this post captures the raw rapture that musicians get overwhelmed by when the music flows beautifully and grandly. Just as the experience of listening has very little overlap with studying the score, so producing Music Itself is a universe away from just playing CDs.

For mature audiences only, here.
