We're losing nuances and nuances are very underrated


My thread on how classical music was covertly dumbed down is perfectly summed up by the member of an audiophile forum in the following words :
We're losing nuances. And nuances are very underrated.
My graphic is work in progress from Norman 'we are by nature nuanced analogue beings' Perryman for his kinetic art performance with composer Toshio Hosokawa, shō exponent Mayumi Miyata and the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra in Amsterdam on Oct 26th. Yes, nuances are very underrated.
