Mark Applebaum: The mad scientist of music




TED speakers seem to always have intriguing ways of speaking to an audience and keeping them engaged.  Mark Applebaum’s TED talk breaks the rules of composing in eccentric ways. Mark’s talk is based around the concept of music steadily becoming boring and how a different approach can make it more interesting. Mark inspires his audience with comedic jokes to keep them engaged in the talk. He also uses visual examples to show the audience what he is talking about, which helps to support his theories on boredom and music. (Mark Applebaum 2012) “Is it music? … This is not the important question. The important question is, is it interesting?” (p. 1) Mark’s view on making music more engaging has pushed him to do projects such as the metaphysics of notation.
