Here's a prime example of why Errol Morris is the best blogger on the whole damn blogoplan. The problem of known and unknown unknowns faces every composer the moment a hen scratch or flyspeck is applied to a sheet of manuscript paper.

It is for this very reason why it is far healthier to have a critical approach to the arts,it movements, and our fellow artists constantly engaged.
While we may choose some line to pursuit, such as minimalism, complexity, or i prefer a preterhedonism since no one seems concerned with the sound of anything any more, we had better understand the shortfalls of any of these directions. As the Scott Walker song goes," In a world full of friends, you lose your way."
That whole societies and institutions might suffer from the same shortfalls should have been looked at.
