[-empyre-] video killed the radio star
some how this conversation has overtones of the "video killed the radio star"
pop song from some decade late last century, with its "blogs are better than
.. but i dont think video did kill the radio star cause every time i get into
taxi i am reminded of the opinion making power of talk back radio.. ( or is
this the only country were taxi drivers are obsessed with it.. ?) and the
endlessness with which certain tracks are repeated sealing sound artists
fortunes.. even in the days of peer to peer.
somehow narrowband persists, like a mailing list, like line animation,
minimalism and concrete art , the pixelated aesthetic, delicious 8 bit sound,
denser fatter boarder forms are freely available, yet people continue to
prefer the less sensory immersive option. txt messages are more popular than
voice calls. there's more to it than financial considerations..
its some how about intense concentration - of the essence of the concept
being communicated through strict, tight, parameters. there is something very
clever in that..
