Interesting…. I had a conversation last nigh with a friend of mine about the design details of a prospective one-stage Milq. He made a suggestion that instead of experimentation with my 5E5P I need to listen some music. I was so surprised that I did not immediately understood what he is wiling to say.
I do not know how you but in my arrays of interests my curiosity in audio and my interest in music very much disassociated. I have written about it many time and many readers were not happy but…. so what?
Audio projects are audio projects, I like them, I enjoy them but they hardly advance my musical interests. As I said before, I practice the “Abstract Audio” and recognize audio as an isolated self-serving field. Sure, audio could produce some advances of stimulations in musical interests but only up to very restricted point. Audio has sort of wrapper on a gift– can make it more attractive but has completely no affect to the substance of the gift.
Sure, audio perfectly could exist without any musical interests, and there are ton of people our there who practice it. The same with musical interests: the musical interests hardly relate to any audio subjects of even to the existence of entire audio.
I know that some of people reading it might be puzzled as they feel that musical interests are ultimate measurement of audio success. I would not argue against this vision but I would only remind you that I use to be there and I have my motivations and ration to step out (or to step over) from that view.
