So my research request isn’t totally out of line, but of course I’m also reminded, by this article, from the Arizona State University paper, that what we do is a bit “different” than what many are used to. Take this, for example:

You don’t realize this when you’re on the inside, but when you try to enter a new artistic realm, you find that music isn’t a sound or a style or a scene. It’s a culture. And I don’t need to remind you of the significance of cultural sensitivity.

If, like me, you can’t tell the difference between C flat and a G – and I’m not really sure if those are even notes – the least you can do is try to be respectful of the atmosphere and enjoy the aesthetic content, even if it is guided by emotion and not technical knowledge.

I have no authority to tell you what you should listen to, but if you are branching out, do some research first.

So at least I’m not entirely out of line. Maybe.
