Hi Paul,

I don't believe the cultural significance lies in the *object* itself,
but in the stories and experiences around it. Things that are not
preservable, and eventually evolve or fade away - and a good thing
too, as that's how culture moves forward. We attempt to preserve what
we can but in many ways we cannot preserve what is important - we
venerate the object like a taxidermist preserves the body, but the
life is still gone. It is a fairly modern and (initially) Western
perspective. I'm not even saying I disagree with it, but I don't
think it is unambiguously a good thing.

Is this interesting? Acoustically perhaps, but we should not kid
ourselves that we are experiencing this in any way like it was
experienced in those days. Maybe we should have The Rite of Spring
performed in this hideous synthesized way - at least then the hostile
reaction might be more accurate! :-)

Best wishes,

Neil
