This is Your Brain on Cartoons
After reading (or shall we say devouring) Daniel Levitin's This is Your Brain on Music, I explored his website. Tucked in a corner is a wealth of very funny cartoons made by Levitin and his friend Dan Piraro.
I am active as a composer, a violist, a violinist, a recorder player, and as a teacher. I began my professional musical life as a flutist, and spent a lot of quality time as a baroque flutist, but both of those instruments spend their time tucked away in a drawer, while my violin, viola, and my viola d'amore are often tucked under my chin.
