Brock’s work in the news

A paper that Brock wrote has been mentioned in a couple of news outlets.  The best story (because it’s the only one that mentions my name, but that’s just because it’s the press release 🙂 ) is here.  The story has been picked up by US News and World ReportForbesCBC News (Canada), and the Atlanta Journal Constitution.  Not quite the cover of the Rolling Stone, but still pretty cool.

    I am so lucky to know a famous person!

  2. Brock says:

    That’s right; get your autographs now.

    Fascinating work! Congratulations — I’m sure there will be many more articles and publicity to come as you continue your work.

  4. jenn says:

    yes, but did you get interviewed by NPR like my cool husband. Kirwan boys rock.

  5. I really enjoyed reading that. I loved learning about memory and brain damage in my neurology classes in grad school. It’s great to stay abreast of the latest research, and to personally know the researcher 🙂

    Great job. Wait, I can’t remember what the article was about 😉

    Congratulations on your research, study and article. Can I be one of your subjects for further brain research?

    Try to hear Adam Gyorgy when you are in Budapest. He has performed at the Thalia Theatre and the Lizst Academy. Go to his website. It is in English and Hungarian.

    SG: do you want me to see if I can pick up some of his CDs for you? I have pictures of concerts in the Great Hall at the Liszt Academy. It’s pretty impressive, but it doesn’t look like he’s got any concert dates while I’m there.

    Here’s something scary: since the US News story, the same piece has been reproduced all over the web. I guess that’s how viral marketing works…

    B,
    Love to get a CD of AG. Thanks for the picture of Kodaly. The great ethnomusicologist and founder of the Kodaly method in choral singing. There are orginzations and chapters all over the place. Jerry Jaccard from BYU is one of the great experts in this field. THE OAKE (Orginzation of American Kodaly Educators) is still real big here. One can certify in this very systemtatic form of music education. Kodaly uses the Curwen hand signs as an important tool. ASU has affilation with the OAKE. When I first heard Maren talking about Brock, the only spelling I knew for the last name was Curwen! Maybe you need to change the spelling!! Kodaly’s teacher was Koessler, who also taught Barok and Dohnanyi. My piano teacher genealogoy goes through this line. Paul Pollei, my teacher at BYU, took lessons from Edward Kilenyi at FSU, his teachers were Dohnanyi and Bartok, their teachers were Stephan Toman, his teacher was Franz Liszt, then Salieri, Czerny to Beethoven. How does it feel to be associated with a famous person! Have fun in Hungary.
