Short thought: I hear a lot of composers today claiming that they can’t say much about what’s happening in music today, not even in their own discipline. There are just too many things happening they tell me. There is no possible way to start making these kinds generalization. They are not accurate, truthful or desirable.
If the point of art is to say something, to respond to questions, to promote dialogue, to provoke thought (not necessarily all at once), how can it be meaningful to say something without knowing what kind of conversation people are having?
