I studied neuroscience at the cellular level, so I was

I studied neuroscience at the cellular level, so I was looking at learning and memory in the visual cortex of rats. Neuroscience mainly exposed me to a way of thinking – about experimentation, about what you believe to be true and how you could prove it – and how to approach things in a methodical manner.
Ze Frank
That openness to experimentation in Seattle is how I learned a drag queen doesn’t have to just be in her pageant gear and lip syncing to top 40. Drag can be off-the-wall, ridiculous, profound.
Jinkx Monsoon
I was always interested in mixing experimentation with pop music, and Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream – we were all doing it at the same time, just very isolated from each other, all in our different cellars, in different worlds, without the Internet – underground in every sense.
Jean-Michel Jarre
The proliferation of styles, genres, and media need not be the death knell of anything. Instead, it’s a sign that our acceptance for variation and experimentation has become wider, our interests have become more diverse, and our appetites have become more omnivorous.

A concert is my experimentation time. I practice playing something several different ways, but in a concert, inevitably I get more ideas onstage, in that combination of focus and adrenaline, than I could ever get in the practice room.
Hilary Hahn
Experimentation is an active science.
Claude Bernard
Hollywood is the only industry, even taking in soup companies, which does not have laboratories for the purpose of experimentation.
Orson Welles
My science teachers always encouraged their classes to ‘go out and discover something’ because all scientific endeavors depend on observation and experimentation. Through such pursuits, anyone can find something new to science, and if it’s truly novel, the entire edifice of science might have to be restructured.
Greg Graffin
I still feel like I have a lot to learn in the realm of sound experimentation, and I think I would like things to get noisier and weirder and more distressed and more aggressive, but I don’t know if that’s something that would be suitable for public consumption.
Sufjan Stevens
With ‘Gold,’ it was a very simple girl, and in ‘Kabir Singh,’ it’s more of a glam role. That’s my aim: I want to experiment as much as I can. These two are very small areas of experimentation.
Nikita Dutta
The most resilient companies foster a pervasive culture of innovation at all levels of the organization – one that values risk-taking, embraces experimentation and considers failure an inevitable part of thinking boldly.
Lynne Doughtie
I fell in love with the elegance and precision of genetic analysis and experimentation to answer profound biological questions.

Amit Trivedi

Meltem Demirors
We have built out the diversity of our product teams, and we saw the caliber of our testing and experimentation improve significantly.

Dorothy Hamill
Out of doing all that experimentation with sound I decided I wanted to do it with live musicians. To take repetition, take music fragments and make it live. Musicians would be able to play it and create this kind of abstract fabric of sound.
Terry Riley
The country needs and, unless I mistake its temper, the country demands bold, persistent, experimentation. It is common sense to take a method and try it, if it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
Anthony Burgess
It is fortunate, I think, that nature is not bounded by human reason and by laboratory work and experimentation, for by the laws of pure reason and by microscopic investigation, it might easily have been proved, long before this, that children could not be born.
Maria Montessori
When I was a young priest in the 1960s and 1970s, there was much experimentation and confusion in the Church. Teachers and clergy were encouraged to communicate an experience of God’s love, but to do it without reference to the Creed, the sacraments, or the tradition.
Donald Wuerl

As experimentation becomes more complex, the need for the co-operation in it of technical elements from outside becomes greater and the modern laboratory tends increasingly to resemble the factory and to employ in its service increasing numbers of purely routine workers.

In order to figure this artmaking stuff out, it’s trial and error and experimentation, and takes some time and hard thinking.

Jim Goldberg
I’d spent a year and a half without a record deal and had been doing a lot of soul-searching, a lot of self-examination and a lot of experimentation in other musical forms.

Matt Lauer
Space exploration and experimentation are critically valuable to our nation. I know of no better way to honor those seven who sacrificed their lives than to recommit ourselves to defend and enhance America’s important strategies in space.
Rob Bishop
A lot of people are scared of experimentation because they think you have to be scientists, or they’re also scared of it because it means that you have to admit that you don’t know the answer. A lot of people like to assume they know the solution to a problem when they don’t.
Stephen J. Dubner
The major challenge facing most foundations is that they are risk averse. This inhibits their ability to experiment and commit to the experimentation and innovation process.
Steven Levitt
