Graham, are you interested in developing race-car engines?


Ha, motorcycles mainly... but stopped racing and the desire to fiddle with the bikes then drains away as well. But if you google you me you might find some surprising old links  ;D

Yes, it does rock…to (some/most of) us anyway. Would it rock according to a typical 9th century Viking? According to a 1st century Roman citizen? According to an early member of homo sapiens ~200,000 years ago?

Hmmm... maybe much further back.

More generally, there is academic research on animal musicality, but it sufferes from the usual ideological conflicts wih those who desperately need to feel that humans are utterly distinct from even their closest relatives...

It's kind of strange to say that music does not need textual context because it's non-representational. It would seem more valid to say that representational photography doesn't need textual context-setting because it is implicit in the image.

The view of a painter, who happens to be a finalist in this year's Wynne prize for landscape painting:

“In my opinion it is axiomatic that if a painting requires an explanatory text it has failed. In this particular painting, the title is explicit.”
-Tim Storrier, 2017

(Scroll down a bit, the painting at the top is for the portrait prize... no comment).

"No comment."

None needed; it's why photography exists to tide us through these terrible periods.
