Kuivila says

In an interview, composer Ron Kuivila says a few remarkable things about notation and more.

One phrase in particular captured my own reticence towards a lot of music from Stockhausen to John Zorn:

"appropriation is at least in part a form of virtuoso consumption"

(It's probably clear by now that, when conspicuous, I have a low comfort level with both virtuosity and consumption.)
