re: How Art School Prepared Me for Programming VIEW POST


My background is in music: my undergraduate degree is classical voice and percussion, my masters degree is in jazz studies. I very much agree with the sentiment of this post. There is something to be said about how creating art; taking something from chaos and making order of it.

For me, one of the most useful skills I have is the ability to see patterns in code-where things can be abstracted in a meaningful way. I credit this directly to learning how to orchestrate for ensembles, whether it choir, big band, or symphony orchestra.


That's so cool - Literal orchestration! I love the idea of bringing order out of chaos. Thank you!
