Maybe it's also the very "visual" mind and related vocabulary trying to express audio ideas? While there are any number of verbal strategies for describing sound, most hinge on "visuals".

Another visual is the new-ish process whereby items (generally proto-types) are quasi-magically "grown" with electrical beams from a base "matrix".  I like this one!

As it happens, my wife is a sculptor.  Sure, there is a version of this that suggests the artist removes material until the piece is "found".  But this assumes there is a There there, to begin with.  There is also sculpting with clay, etc., where the process is "additive".  Is the "seed" in this case in the material or the artist?  I understand all of these visual analogies to dance near enough to the subject of audio to be useful, given a sympatico dialog, and this in turn might even play with more "abstract" notions of sculpture, as opposed to figurative and/or more "classical"notions.

Another interesting question would be, how many Sabas does it take to equal an orchestra?


Best regards,

Rather wrong practice.

I think it is not Wrong Analogy but Wrong Practice. I kind of getting annoyed buy general practice to talk or to think about audio as it is some kind of abstractive substance. A person shall do things, get the results he intended and then USE the result. Audio exists not in the ceremony of searching results but in practice of using it. Somebody use compressions drivers, full-range, or whatever but the key is not in what they used but how what they use helps them in whatever they are looking in playback.   All those conversation about audio methods without direct relation to listenable objectives and direct correlation of results with interpretive musical characteristic of playback I found are just shaking air with mouth.  I am not against taking but I feel that in most of the cases besides interests of audio people there is nothing that value.   I have passed the period of my live when I was fascinated in Audio by plate currents, VTA setting or specifics of non-horizontal time aliment of drivers.  I still play all those games but frankly I care less about them.

1) Dynamic appreciation and understanding of Music.

2) Dynamic appreciation and understanding of Sound(s) as this relates to Music.

3) Dynamic appreciation and understanding of electro-mechanical effects of hi-fi as they bear on 1 & 2.

So, what happened to the Stool?  Good question!  If to merely sit there speculating, then scroll down the OED definitions to see what the stool is worth...
