Where do you Stand?

Audio Activist Guthry over at the Crunch has a top post today about the inherent ambiguity of art, and its flow-on effect into life and politics. Because art, here specifically music, is a uniquely individual experience, there is no "correct" answer - we extract from a sonata or concerto what nourishment we can - one man's Mozart is another man's sleeping pill. Art is a wide spectrum.

Guthry goes on to write about how this Artistic Diversity leads to a sense of tolerance and balance - we come to see the possibility of different viewpoints, and become anxious ourselves to protect this open system. There is still a pursuit of Excellence, but any move towards Uniformity is total anathema.

Go have a swill of it yourself here.
