_POINTS OF VIEW
— the natural translation of music sounds does not exist and never did. It’s ridiculous to demand the genuine thrill of violins and cellos from shivering pieces of carton. In fidelity aspect we haven’t move forward too far from Edison’s phonograph, just wheeze and noise amount has got lower.
— and no regrets about it. If truth was the aim of pictorial art, the digital camera would through Rubens and Michelangelo into the side. Audio is not the mirror. Audio is a kind of modern art which translates feelings rather than ephemeral truth.
«Different means sight. Like phantasmagoria it aims to the total replacement of real life perception» — Jim Morrison.
— a number of genial people in XX century have already turned the sound translation into the art. It’s important to analyze their approaches, technologies, theories and fortuities to continue on moving their way using new technologies.
