WHO LET YOUR EARS OUT? Do We Still Listen?
Once again I had to retitle this in a more controversial way. I think this is worth hearing what people have to say from social, psychological, scientific and evolutionary points of view. I offer no comment except for this:
When my mom was a teenager, over one hundred years ago, every household that could afford it had a piano. And most members of the family played an instrument. My dad, mandolin, his brother, clarinet, and my mom, piano. I can imagine the cacophonies arising into the summer evenings. There was the Edison cylinder phonograph and that was about it. Times have changed. Have we changed as music appreciators as well?
