In 2006 and again in 2007 I featured some online lectures on the arts. I have now visited the site again and hand selected and bookmarked around 50 more lectures which I will post here and on Blakkbyrd. Most of them are around an hour long, that's fifty hours of material to listen to whilst working in the studio.
They all come from the same source.
