So Many Instruments!
What is the key to get more instruments talking with each other and to start articulating a more rich vocabulary. With the wealth of instruments we have available to us for enjoyment there seem not to be enough people around to play them, or develop any consistency to form some sort of band. A banjo, tabla set, guitar, why not!?
And yes, there are distractions and musical references that accompany these instruments. These are deeply rooted and make it hard to get folk and contemporary realms to talk to one another.
Do you consider instruments to be loudspeakers of the past?
Do they communicate similar realities extemporaneously, that is from the past to us in the present?
What role do our expectations play in musical settings?
How do people characterize a musical performance?
