MusicThoughts

a quiet place to think about music

Avant-garde music is a sort of research music. You're glad someone's done it but you don't necessarily want to listen to it.

It's similar to the way I'm very happy people have gone to the North Pole. It extends my concept of the planet to know it exists, but I don't want to live there, or even go there actually. But it's a boundary condition.
Brian Eno
