What was interesting to me, besides the pathology, was that there was
such a definitive change in his memetic output due to this.
"Orchestral timbres came to dominate his late music at the expense of
melodic complexity because the left half of his brain deteriorated"
Fascinating language studies are being done with people who have had to
had their left hemispheres removed due to seizures, but Ravel looks like
a pathology that moves us to the language of music.
