I love that Matthias can’t help himself and has to correct people who say the most reasonable and broad things, and then tries to contradict those people. Did I say there are no definitions? NO. I said there are many of them, and none of them are all encompassing.
Music is a word that means whatever people think it means, if enough of them think it means something different than me, or than you, then that’s what it means.
If there was a wrong way to make music, and there was one definition of music, then music would be not worth doing. Music is our flaws.
Music is our limitations. Music is our emotions made audible. Music is all these things and more, but only if you believe that music is worth putting effort and time into, does it become something worthwhile.
Just like everything in life, Music is everything or nothing, or something in between, and what it is depends on what you make of it.
When you try to analyze it too much, you end up killing it. Witness Ben Shapiro ( a moron ) arguing that Rap is not music. Go away Ben Shapiro and all his clones. Are there people who think there are things that are music, and things that are not, and that it’s their job to gatekeep? Yes. Are they full of crap? Yes.
