A presentation intended as Art might be "missed" altogether by those
whose appreciation [ARC] for it is out of step with it.
People have their favourite forms of art, particularly
in relation to music, and may have less affinity for
other forms of art than music.
With music, I personally can't "appreciate" heavy metal and some country and western
music. As it has not been part of positive human experience for me, I haven't been
inclined to develop an affinity for it. Some forms of music are like a "negative
musical form of Aromatherapy" simply reminding me of times, places, people or events
that I have no affinity for or had "negative affinity" for. I may have been in a "different" mood or
incompatible mood at the time.
ARC is three qualities that add up to understanding and willingness or
ability to "be" there to "do" something to "have" something.
If a "beginner" or student was to just take up
an instrument and play sounds until they became musical or
beautiful, one would soon be hearing a series of notes
that would be 'good to listen to'... the true beginnings of music. This would almost
certainly develop into what could be regarded as "one's own" music, and it
would be no less music than that created by an experienced, well known
or highly trained composer. There
may be a vast difference in
but it would be, none the less, Music.
From that point on,
focusing attention and 'tuning in'.... creating ARC develops not only a
"sense" for music,
but creates music with 'listening results' far superior to
this way... and having this attitude... results in the ability to interpret works composed
by others with superior style.... But of course this may have no bearing on whether the
"mass market" or "critics" appreciate the works or the
performance of it... or not.
Music played naturally
as ones own with ones own feeling carrying the flow to the listener straight from the
heart rather than the music manuscript is where music is at its best. It's the level of
ARC in the music that makes the difference.
