I really enjoyed class today. The ending of the movie was really good but extremely sad at the same time. Then, the lecture on Finnish music and history was very interesting. I found it very cool that there were so many dynamics to the Finnish music. I also liked the fact that Finnish music had two very different influences, and the two different types of music sound vastly different. The idea that the music is based off of the past and has to do with their history was also pretty neat. Since Finland had such a vastly different history that even its neighboring countries, which in turn made their culture and language different, which I find weird.
