I like it when oceanographers and treasure hunters go down to the Titanic for no real reason other than to give the Grand Old Lady of the Ocean a big fat DEEP DICKING with submarines and cameras.

Destroy it? Hmmm...

If somebody's playing '4:33' by John Cage, turn the CD off halfway through the track. See if they notice. ;)
Sometimes it's not a lack of technical knowledge, and it's not laziness. It's just a lack of anything resembling what we call motivation. Like Ron Livingston said in Office Space, "It's not that I'm lazy... I just don't care!"

ppl have some crazy interpretations of this,

i thought it would have been something like,
Nuke Rick Wrights Grave, followed by the bakery, and then start a Pop Band and take over the world....
My name is Archie. yes really.

build a time machine, go to the future, see whats big musically, then come back and destroy its roots...although that would mean turning ALL music into homogeneous moosh......so maybe its not a good idea at all!

I did a gig where one of the other support bands did a live version of that... not a bright idea as the crowd decided to fill the 4 and a half minutes with discussion about how crap the band were. Still had to admire them, they sounded just like the real thing.

the whole point of that piece was so an audience could listen to the ambient sounds of a concert hall....so essentially every performance is going to sound totally different...in that case the ambient noise was punters talking !

Maybe the crowd were just getting into the spirit of it, but the guys on stage looked pretty uncomfortable about the whole thing, it was some pretty loud ambiance.

i am in the same boat.

destroying music no matter how horrible it may be is a terrible idea because you never know whos listening and getting inspired. you could kill an entire new musical revolution by destroying avant garde.

heres a suggestion for your friend dont listen to it. i certainly dont listen to the spice girls.
Please Quall back any time.

indeed, I think he just meant you needn't listen to music you don't like, there's no need to 'destroy' genres, just ignore em. Fun Fact: When John Cage wasn't busy dangling spoons off piano strings or writing 200 years of D#, he was also a mycologist (someone who studies fungi) and had a vast collection of mushrooms.

How about something slightly more achievable next time? Like, 'let's make a million dollars' :P
