Re: [microsound] aesthetic approach

Well, i suppose music theory is simply additive-- people learn them and
appropriate them as part of their own style in whateer time they are part
of. but i see new dialectics of
music being formed simply due to how tightly bound out culture is to the
new technology that is discovered.  and becuase of this new technology we
are able to discover new time-space questions that have never been brought
up before. For instance, silophone.net, the discussiong of sound source
and sound desitination have been requestioned. in addition because of new
technology, new discoveries of psycho accoustics have been developed, to
create sound illusions is an example. by more fully understand human
accoustic phenomena, new emotions or new combinations of emotions can now
be honed from the viewer. sorry if this is sounding like babble, my
thoughts run faster tham my typing.
