"The Mystery Of Sound Is Mysticism"
I don’t wish to be coarse, but the use of the word “mysticism” in this conversation is somewhat unfortunate in my opinion. I provided the Oxford Languages definition of the word above, and I will leave it at that. I am keen on discussing music, an... 
"The Mystery Of Sound Is Mysticism"
@mijostyn  Obviously, my point that music, as a thing in human experience, is only partially explained when it is jotted down on a staff, still stands.   Just because we can read The Brothers Karamazov doesn’t mean we can scientifically explain t... 
"The Mystery Of Sound Is Mysticism"
Music and art can’t be reduced to digits on a page. At least, it can’t be adequately summarized entirely in that way. The page that has a bunch of figures and data on it is only tangentially related to music and art as a whole. mys·ti·cism /ˈmi...

Was 1971 the high point of popular music?
How about 1970? We can point to something akin to the “invention” of this music (I get it, I get it…there are always predecessors, but these things below arguably crystallized these types of music like nothing prior) Hip hop The Last Poets - The ... 
Mastering legend Bernie Grundman explains why the measurement crowd has it all wrong!
Music is not math or science.  It is art. Music (art), math and science indeed may intersect, but they are not the same thing. They are all different things (again, it is true, especially math and music, that they often intersect). If someone wa... 
Any other Pipe And Slippers Audiophiles out there?
A smoking jacket with a cigar and slippers sounds pretty good. Too bad I'll never smoke in my home/listening room (let alone a cigar). Sounds pretty good though. I suppose I could still wear the smoking jacket and slippers. I nice scotch and/o... 
BEST little know Jazz Album that you ever heard?
@simonmoon Wednesdays 8:00-10:00 pm on KBGA (University of Montana radio station) is a show called, “Something Else!” by Bill Kautz.   Great DJ. Good radio voice, professional, gives just enough talkin’ without being one of those blabberers, and p... 
WHY IS THERE SO MUCH HATE FOR THE HIGH END GEAR ON AUDIO GEAR?
The way people toss around the word “hate” these days can often be a bit much.   A convenient way to dismiss a contrary opinion; “you’re just a hater.”   Not mature, not constructive, and probably a projection. Audiophiles are punchlines in socie...

Robbie Robertson: "Killers Of The Flower Moon" Soundtrack
From the beginning, Scorsese found a way to bring extremely high levels of craftsmanship combined with originality, uncompromising moral/artistic integrity, and deep curiosity about human nature/society to the masses with his films, has never chan... 
The History of Recorded Music: The Re-emergence of the vinyl Record
Thanks for sharing the vid.   The whole process of putting music on to a spinning disc is indeed a fascinating thing.   I was just listening to records with a friend last night.   Not to be corny, but it’s still a strange thing to put a diamond ti... 
Does a particular musician’s songwriting and artistry speak to you above all others?
@asmithkash I love Radiohead. My original 45 rpm pressing of In Rainbows is sonic heaven. They were sort of, if not “The Beatles” (no band in history but them had that kind of dominance of everything in pop music) of my teen years, the “Zeppelin” ... 
ARE AUDIOPHILES OVERLY SENSITIVE BY NATURE?FEELINGS AND OPINIONS?
@thecarpathian  "..as I’ve never feared being talked to death…" You would if you met my brother in law. Guy hasn't shut the hell up since I met him. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
