the arms and legs of the great one,
You can hit it right now,
you can hit it pop pow––
I am getting interested in what I think of as the 'accumulation factor' and how this affects our ability to process new sounds. With the music that was created at a specific time, live and in studio, so freely available on a variety of real-time disseminative mediums, are sounds lost in an archival jumble where everything sounds old, somehow 'done before'?
What is the underlying concept of aging and generation, and changes in style? How does the music created by (and through) machines affect this? Would we all be basically better off (in the aural sense) with only that temporal music of the transient now––is progress a bad case of the 'pop pow' wow?
