Music on Music: An event begins with a concept expressed by the artist/musician to one or more receivers. This communication is transcribed or hypothesized internally by the watchers/listeners. It’s processed in real time. It is then followed by a period of responses and further communication lasting a duration set forth by the narrative artist/musician. Then, the expressional act ends. We see the linear narrative story present as a beginning, middle, and an ending.... Is it?
“Sometimes musicians who are in a perceived position of power and/or authority beat the drum-of-jazz-righteousness the most. Thinking they are saving it, or helping it, or making it more profound... they in fact are just making pretentious noise for the jazz minions who blindly follow them”. Cc!
