Dead-Air, I'm actually talking about that one Glenn Branca track which is just John Cage talking about Branca for like 30 minutes and saying how terrible he is. Cage sounded like a pompous dickhead. I've only heard one other interview with Cage besides that and he seemed like a dick. No big deal, just sayin'.

Huh, I'd never heard of that track. I always find that sort of thing unfortunate when one artist spends a lot of energy dissing another. I can see where you're coming from then. Is it on a particular Branca album?

Yeah, I'm with you on that... I think the point I was making is that criticising noise at this point in history is a bit like the Daily Mail 'modern art isn't art' brigade. It's here, it's art, deal with it. It's fine to not like it, but dismissing it entirely is just critically rubbish. I'm more trying to undermine the reverence of noise fans rather than trying to explain what's good about it.

There was this really awesome industrial (as in EN style, not NIN style) band in Seattle in the late '80s to early '90s called the Metaphonics, and they had this hilarious song called, "I don't know what I like, but I know what art is!"

For some tangential reason, your post reminded me of that (though I'm going even further off topic now...)

Dead-Air, you can read about the track here:

http://www.sonicyouth.com/gossip/sho...ight=john+cage

It also reminded me that John Cage hated Harry Partch, the most innovative composer maybe ever.

I'd appreciate that, since all this talk about John Cage is interesting but not related to anything particularly relevant to the threads's title.

That's the whole point I'm trying to make. With Noise there isn't anything really definitive. The average Noise review is just surrealistic mumbo jumbo. The music is very personal and therefore difficuilt to write from an objective standpoint. It's easier to write on how Noise makes you feel personally than what the music actually does.

actually.... *start being a music snob*
but while bach was brilliant, he was not considered to be a very innovative composer for his time. his true brilliance was he took inspiration from all kinds of music from opera to 16th century counterpoint (ars antiiqua)
im not saying that he wasnt great. but as for pure innpovations there were much more innovative composers before him.

But Bach is better than anyone else, we're agreed on that, right?

Actually, Radio 3 seems to be exploring the non-J.S Bachs lately, and I'm developing a fondness for CPE. Should I worry?

Isn't that true about any music? Anyway, apart from this nonsense, this forum could seriously do with people who specialise in something and really know their shit, instead of this continuous incoherent drivel.
