Yes, Paul, that´s roughly what it comes down to. Before we got a little side tracked because "we" as a board have realy been needing to have a serious word on DJ-ing beyond saying "please don´t post mixes of copyrighted songs" I write this;

Quote:

Later use might be now. I just realised that for modern compositions where formal scores are unavailabele and arguably impossilble in this post-dub era where the desk is a fundamentally important instrument itself and the only "score" available to both the listener and often the composer himself is the recording, the equivalent might be DJ-ing.

DJ-ing and in particular modern, non-realtime, variants such as the use of Live, Acid or Tracktor to make mixes for online distribution requires a different ear; more attention to how accents shift and keys in order to try and avoid clashes and particularly to make something new out of something existing.


Which to me is very close to your interpertation, even if you concnetrate on how music relates to the world and I was concentrating on a single curious human (like Jasper or me) who wanted to dive deeper into one or two pieces.

As we discussed in -I think- the "written music" thread; sometimes the recording will be the only realy "notation" a piece will ever have. I suppose those piece don´t survive beyond their recordings and of cource that need not matter, but that could damage our ability to "get to know them" on a deeper level.

It´s not gospel, you know, it´s not some great amazing thing that will change the world, just a little insight I thought I got in a latenight "fooling around with stuff" session that I thought I´d share and discuss and get some feedback.

Anyways, notation can be a wonderful read. I just found our copy of "BWMV 232 / Messe in h-moll" - B?renreiter Study Scores.
