Making a playlist with Brent is daunting, like The Hoof, he listens to so much music (check his extensive review site The Musical Hype) that it can be a little intimidating. But as always, the minute we started, it became easy and a lot of fun.
While I was generally pulling classics to Brent’s more up to date picks – I think we ended with a really nice flow – indeed – a conversation between two music lovers, spanning decades and genres and creating something unique for your ears!
About the Curators
Slightly eccentric with interests that seem to know no ends, restless ‘Renaissance Man’ is the best way to characterize Brent Faulkner, a native of Kentucky. A certified music educator, multi-instrumentalist, and composer known for his incredibly sharp ear, he lives and breathes music of a variety of styles. In addition to passion for educating, performing, and writing music, he’s equally passionate blogging and writing about it, managing his own site, The Musical Hype. When he’s not intensely analyzing music, you can find him reading or watching a movie, reality television or some sporting event
The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the Dark Forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top, they would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.
As a psychology graduate I studied how sound affects human performance.
As a musician I compose instrumental music that stimulates your brain but doesn't mess with your language centers, leaving you free to be creative and brilliant without distraction.
