I've stated it once in a panel discussion that the problem with
modern/contemporary art is that you have to listen/see/watch/experience a lot
of it, to find some good stuff, since it has not been weeded out for us yet by
That however should not stop us from making it.
There's also statements that technologies like the gramophone and radio
actually stopped people from being creative and play music by themselves,
since there was no need anymore, since you could put up a record or turn on
the radio if you wanted to hear some music, rather than to have to have a
person in the family play something.
So in a way, modern technology has made things less democratic too.
