WRONG again!!!! Art is NOT what registers with people, true art is defined by those who understand the specific art form. Jazz and classical music are beyond your scope of understanding. You are illiterate in both art forms so they mean nothing to you. "Art is what registers with people." REALLY????? Here is a lyric from a great standard song, a song with real substance, a fully formed melody contained within a repeating classic form, accompanied by wonderfully complex harmony. I chose this because of it religiously based poetic lyrics. You don't have to be religious to see the beauty in the lyrics. From I REMEMBER YOU, the last stanza'Poor blacklagoon.
He is still under the illusion that we are supposed bow to his declarations of what is art, and what ain't. He could be just one of those damned critics. They go to school and are taught it should be this way, and then go out and tell everyone else what they are supposed to like.
Art is what registers with people, not with the scholars and pros. It's a communication thingy.
"And when my life is throughout, and the angels ask me to recall, the thrill of it all, then I will tell them I remember you." Now here is what "registers with people" Compare the two sets of lyrics and tell me which is art. From a person who has sold millions of DC's made millions of dollars, is popular beyond belief, tours the world, his venues sell out to hundreds of thousands. These lyrics from Justin Beiber.
Oh baby baby, oh baby, oh oh oh baby, oh baby baby baby, oh oh oh oh, baby oh. Baby baby baby, oh oh oh oh oh oh , baby baby, oh baby baby, There more, look it up. This over an opened ended form, no melody, simplistic triadic harmony and a repudiative groove. THIS is what resinates with the general public. Mindless dribble.
