Oh, and as I forgot to do alt-text originally, the excerpt was: ‘MUSIC, for me, is not just about notes. It is about everything. Music exists before we exist. It is the shaper of the universe. It is the universe itself. It is the primary vibration, the first thing that moves everything else. Everybody understands the language of music, whether they are a composer or not.

My new 2-parter, Secrets of Size, starts tomorrow on BBC4 at 9pm. I don't do much TV these days, so when I do I make sure it's REALLY good.

OK, maybe it's not entirely down to me, and one or others have, um, helped out, but it's still REALLY good. bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0017frp

With crypto crashing, hopefully to zero, we have a potential ~0.1 Gt-CO2 per year savings in greenhouse gas emissions on the table.

Cool. That’s 10,000x larger than all the world’s carbon capture technologies to date. And it could happen immediately.
