Mindbenders from the chaos-sphere

Mindbenders from the chaos-sphere

What is music? What is a song (track?). The popular culture and masses seem to have their own ideas of what these questions refer to. Most of the time, this comes from what they have been brainfed by the establishment and/or what their friends or peers consider it to be. Those of us on the Fringe or in touch with the infinite universe have very different answers and interpretations to these questions. Sound as Art and Sound as Sculpture. Is a verse needed? Is a beat needed? No, these are elements that may be used but not conformed to. There is literally an infinite sound pallet in front of you physically, digitally, and in your mind. Use it as you wish.

I've been thinking along these lines lately as well. Maybe in another context, but I think it's in the same area. In my day job as a graphic designer I'm always struck by how everyone thinks they are designers, but at the same time they think they aren't. After designing something it's inevitable that the client will begin request changes to color, placement, etc.

I think everyone is creative. I think it's human nature. It's how we make sense of the world, how we categorize and learn language and simply function. Unfortunately I don't think most people are "artistic". Their creativity doesn't explore outside the boundaries they've learned from others.

Most people's "creativity" lies in making things conform to what's accepted. It's always a struggle whenever I offer a change to some format. You always have to show how it's been done before.

Just a note Bryan, I've been having some weird problems with the Tapegerm player giving me error notices, so after trying to hear this a few times in the last few days, I finally did a "page info" to separate out the mp3.

Keep up the good work, CIII
