I am not a musician

<< But music has lost that mission -- or, rather, succeeded too well -- and fragmented and tribalized, and become incapable of changing anything >>

Right. I think the influence of music is in submission, but that it will come back, after a lull. Maybe ten years from now(?) someone will do something weird and wacky, and we'll all start hearing the message in the music again

<< What might change the world is robots, the internet, genetic engineering, and time-based media. Well, all except time-based media, actually >>

Time-based media being music and video? Anything that depends on sequential consumption? Is a series of images, presented on one page, time-based?

I like speed. I like consuming with my eyes because it's faster than consuming with my ears. But I think we'll get sick of consuming art fast, and then flip back to more meditative consumption. It's all cyclical, and right now we're on the visual, fast part of the cycle, but we will learn the limitations of speed and then want the slow stuff again
