Let me out myself once more: I like live music, played by warm bodies, for warm bodies, in real rooms. I prefer live performances of music made for live performance to recordings. I like the spontaneity and variation a live performance necessarily brings to a work and I like the way the music dissipates in a real room or out-of-doors space, as the sound waves are absorbed and reflected into both air, architecture, ear, and memory. A live performance of music is a unique event in time, space, audition and memory for which there is no adequate substitute.
