Big Ears Make Music Good

Monday, February 4th, 2008

It’s a well-known fact that many people have no taste in music; in fact, anyone who disagrees with you would fall into this category. We tend to have well-defined comfort zones with regard to what we listen to, whether that be the soporific major-key dronings of afternoon radio or the mangled circuit-bending madness of a honey-coated vintage synth carcass being manipulated by an industrial spin-dryer. It’s probably a safe bet that neither of these (not entirely imaginary) individuals would enjoy listening to the other’s record collection; but is there any way of explaining the vast differences in musical taste that make the music world so very fascinating?
