Thread Name: The fine line between MUSIC and NOISE!
Subject: RE: The fine line between MUSIC and NOISE!
I've always believed that music that need s to eb played loudly has very little else to offer - I was appalled when I first heard the term, "pump up the volume" - cultural fascism, as far as I'm concerned
We have adopted the practice of pointedly walking out of shops that play loud music to sell their goods - a frequent practice in many of our capital's stores - now quite reached the wild west of Ireland yet
Can I just add that I find the practice of over amplified cinemas equally offensive - uncomfortable and distorting
I too have hearing problems, so if I can hear things it's probably too loud for everybody else, so if it's too loud for me....
