>1000+ years of art music, centuries of traditional music, 100+ years of jazz and improvised music, and over seven decades of erudite electronic music
Yet you spend most of your time listening to metal, hip hop,"experimental", and "indie"?
Please kill yourselves, all of you.
when someone talk about "erudite electronic music" here, they obviously have stockhausen in my mind.
i like some of the ina-grm albums though, and i don't hate serialism per se. the serialist crowd, however, is way too prententious, and i have trouble appreciating their stuff because of that.

>they're talking about German minimal techno
There is nothing like going to a live show of a living artist and experiencing the social elements of music. It is absolutely beautiful. Jazz is still around in exciting live formats, playing authentic and new music. Examples of this would be Kris Bowers, Christian Scott and Robert Glasper. Classical, not so much, at least not with newly written music.
I agree with this. It'd be like someone spending most of their time reading books that came out in the last few years, and ignoring everything that stood the test of time. Check out /lit/ and you'll rarely ever see a book talked about that came out that year.
People on /my/ are just feeding on the current stream of trash, that are mostly rehashes of other shit, without seeing the bigger picture of music as an art.
Because /mu/'s general taste is basically the flavor of the month hyped by p4k and fantano, and it's annoying. Other critics are rarely taken into account here (like The Wire, for example)
Do you not understand how prevailing notions of popular media's relation to the canon works? Especially given the quasi-academic atmosphere of /lit/ versus /mu/'s. This does NOT necessitate that /mu/ is incapable of discussing erudite and canonical works though as evinced by any chart general, /noise/, /classical/, or general lurking.
>centuries of traditional music
Traditional music passed down by oral record no doubt dates as far back as the stone age. Are you so modernist that you only look at traditional music in the past few centuries? You could be listening to recordings of neanderthal bone flute but instead you're listening to 1750s Scottish civil war albums.
