Subject: RE: The fine line between MUSIC and NOISE!
UK legislation has been invoked and gone to appeal. Currently in the news.

A viola player lost hearing acuity because he was sited in front of the horn section at a rendition of Wagner's thunderous opera Die Walkure.
His case was brought because he was an employee of the Royal Opera House.
Curiously the ROH defence was that musicians must expect some hearing damage if you play in an orchestra. Tinnitus is not damage it is loss.

BBC article

some types of music absolutely must be played at max volume - caveat dico !

Anyone walk close to modern day buskers - or on the other side of the road?
