If I were to stitch sustainability onto these recordings we did up in Volcano the other day, it would go something like: As much as I enjoyed thrashing my trusty Les Paul through a Marshall amp set on 11, there are some fascist qualities to the loudspeaker, among other devices, that are less sustainable for communities. Yes! A Les Paul without sustainability. Hard to imagine, but true! (Jay, think playing acoustic music as sailing without an engine! heh)
Ivan Illich mentioned as an example, the Mexican communities that typically employed several groups of acoustic musicians, and their disappearance upon the coming of the loudspeaker.
Me, I still like to plug in sometimes, but one does start to see realize the oppression of any of those folks choosing to not use such devices. (Throw automobile in there too.) And suppressing the opposition is indeed a hallmark of fascism.
Dang, mostly I wanted to gratuitously pimp me and my friends playing some music..
Is that so wrong ?
