A Futurist Writes

I don't know how the world will end. Best case scenario, we don't self-destruct and are off here within 10 Million years and on another planet. worst case  and most probable scenario, somebody launches a nuclear bomb and that's all folks. Otherwise. A meteor? Nature gets pissed and black plagues us? One way or the other are days are numbered.

But I believe in the future because, appearance notwithstanding, the story of mankind has been the story of a steady move forward in just about every level of existence. That doesn't mean the worst is yet to come but I think it does mean, the worst that will come to mankind will come as an anomalie and that till then we will progress from strength to strength.

This includes music.

The problem with getting stuck at a certain stage of musical advancement: the consistent whining about how "the new music ain't got the same soul" is as follows:

1. The new music has quite as much soul


2. Even if it hasn't, new music isn't destroying old music. That old stuff you loved, it is still there. It hasn't gone anywhere. You aren't in a quid pro quo situation: you aren't saying either Araabmusiq or Pink Floyd: you can listen to both without betraying either.

Music does one of two things always. It either

1. Repeats the past


2. Adds to the past.

It is because of this that it always gets better. Because it always expands and adds to what is there.

I am a futurist in all things but in music more than in anything else. I am sorry I am gonna die in ten or fifty years because of all the great music I'm gonna miss by not being here.
