Is there such a thing like abstract music?

Leave a comment

Music always is in time as a given function thereof. The invention of the recording machine has added recursion to this formula and changed music as a we perceive it and how it is accessible. Some musicians used to bring loopers or other devices on stage during the last decades. Some play music which they call ‘musique sérielle’ which provides some answers to the new listening habits.

When comparing the shift in the audio world before music recording as it might was and afterwards to the painting world before and after inventing photography there is obviously one big difference: In painting there was a shift to abstract painting which cannot be found as such in music.

What do you think? Is this observation true? Please leave a comment in the comment section below this post if you have any thought about this subject!
