Electronic music is all very well but my friends who are sound artists, and recordists, tell me they have and will always have a record collection as well as, and sometimes in preference to, a CD collection.
Being someone who knows I don’t have the musical ears of some people, and actually know my talents do not stretch beyond a minimum sense, I listen to those who have brains wired differently to me. I enjoy electronic music because I can download it or listen to it online but to my friends it is dry, unyielding and always the same.
The grooves in the records do not give exactly the same feedback every time to the needle. This difference makes it ‘real’ to my musical friends. Because, as they point out, every musical performance is different, like every theatrical performance, every speaking engagement…in fact every art form.
