Anderton Posted April 14, 2004 Share Posted April 14, 2004 I wonder if it has anything to do with fewer and fewer groups recording together in studios and creating a Musical Experience as opposed to assembling a collection of tracks with the "look and feel" of music. Maybe recordings record something other than just audio...maybe there's a "sub-carrier" that contains more of the essence of what music is about. A lot of music sounds like there's a hole in the middle of it where's something's missing. And people don't like that. They want to hear a bunch of humans having a shared musical experience, not a reasonable facsimile. It's like the difference between riding through the countryside in a car, and looking at a video taken by a camcorder in a car riding through the countryside. You may see the same basic stuff, but the experience is not at all the same. And maybe this is the problem people have with digital audio: It has allowed this type of music to become commonplace, and they're confusing the medium with the way that it's being used.
