^^^ the techne of the automated machine and the music it produces in the modern age could never be classed as 'master', and neither could those who are drawn and attracted to its substratum of artificiality. with the exception of a few who escaped the homogenizing force of the technologies and capitalist modes of production that would monopolize and put to slow death the spirit of music, our age marks the beginning stage of the descent into a mediocrity the human species will never again be able to rise out of en masse. but this is the result of a dialectical logic that has governed our relationship to music in the west; the process involved a finite number of general possibilities being realized over the course of a few hundred years... eventually to reach a maximum point of creativity and then begin its gradual descent into banality.

the master musician's last stand, or i should say epic battle to forestall the imminent destruction of the spirit of music in the west, might best be portrayed in this last valiant attempt to hold the gates against the untermusician, the post-modern artist and his complacence to artificial intelligence. pay close attention to the voice of howe's guitar in the opening part leads... the insane cackling and violent madness of its berserker rage as it slashed and stabbed at the enemy. this should give you a picture of the intensity of the battle.


go to 7:49




in any case the 'master class' of musicians is still possible - our four heroes, howe, moraz, squire and white, didn't lose the battle - but its numbers have been greatly reduced and forced to go into exile (you'll rarely find them on the radio).

(one thing plato was absolutely right about was that you can judge much about a people/culture by its music)

I'm sure your ancestors made the same arguments when musicians started composing piano orchestras for the first time.

'member that part i mentioned above.... 7:49 in 'the gates of delirium'? in my early twenties i was getting free concert tickets from a friend who worked at walnut creek amphitheater. it seemed like every two weeks we went to a concert. i saw more bands than i could count; steve miller, santana, jethro tull, crosby stills and nash, etc. etc. this went on for a entire summer, but what i remember most clearly was what happened when Yes played 'the gates of delirium.' now it's difficult for me to distinguish between what actually happened, and what i thought was happening on account of eating a half-quarter of shrooms before the show. there was a storm... on that we all agreed... so that much wasn't a hallucination. but what was happening in the sky above the amphitheater during that 7:49 part was something like i've never seen before during a storm. it wasn't raining... not a single drop, but the sky looked as if plasma bombs were exploding above the clouds. it wasn't just ordinary lightening man. i'm tellin you that Yes summoned something that evening... something very angry, ur.

My non-tired reply is: I appreciate the dulcid tones of their lyrical Korean offerings of song, combined with their traditional musical style, to create music that I wish to fill my senses with.

I’ve never been into Western boy/girl bands.. K-pop and K-rap is not comparable, and should therefore never be compared, to them.

i'm partial to ausha cuz she pulled a pastorius and zappa off with masterful precision, so i won't be voting. so ya'll got to decide which of these cats is the hippest. and don't vote for juna just because she's japanese and ruvs funk. i know how you progressives are. wanna give somebody a trophy just because they're a minority or some crap.


alessandra





juna
