All you need is a pair of headphones—"not earbuds," says the composer—and a willingness to hear music in noise. The 34-year-old Perich’s compositions push the border between white noise and electronic music, frequently straddling the two as if the static on your old television started emitting a strangely beautiful pattern of sound.

Ethos is essentially your credibility — that is, the reason people should believe what you’re saying. Pathos is making an emotional connection — essentially, the reason people believe that what you’re saying will matter to them. The 10 Most Popular Leadership Stories Of 2014.
