musician as "ethos engineer"


Musicology today? An occasion to go back to the sample/mix/render mixture, and the delineation of a "work" in composer/performer/listener configuration. Talk about "commenting" on sutras, and transmission strategies of music and musical training as a practice of composition (in this case, it's nothing more than shiva bringing the universe into being: diversity. thread this with emptiness). Aristoxenus tells us to do this and other rhythmic recipes tell us to do this. The rhythm is the lacuna of composition: angle of entry for rhetorical analysis of diverse bodies of discourse. It's everywhere and nowhere in rhetorical history.
