Eat Music! Is full-flavoured and nourishing! And however fat, don't worry, it can hardly give you bulky ears…Unless you come from the solar system Sol, planet Fege (or its moons), where indeed sound turns into ear-saccharose, if not properly digested. Fege's inhabitants, suffering from sound-diabetes and lack of sound-invertase, are attached to easy-digesting music, aka POP (Poor Of Phatsoundsteroids).
And to whom it may further concern:
Always respect the "old". Believe in it and use it as the foundation or the core for further development. To this extent, culture and her child, music, need the tradition in the same ways that everything needs the 'wisdom' of the former in order to build itself with. By following the exact same process, which everything surrounding us follows: parent⇾mutation⇾adaptation⇾evolution. So, feel free to manipulate, remix, alter the old, hold it as an idea or -even better- contradict to it and experiment to explore the new. However, please, do NOT repeat the same identical sounds through time. The opinion that the original would be always better is just lame. Specially, you people playing music in public, don't chew over and over the same good or bad shit. Nothing is classic. Be open-minded, respect the past and absolutely use it. Above all, never forget that culture -both old and modern-, like anything natural, is and must remain a commons, a shared resource, free to everyone. Pursue it, seek it and good luck!
