Andre Willers
21 Mar 2011

Synopsis :
An interesting Hegelian synthesis .

Discussion :

The Thesis :
Any Empire requires repetitive music on demand .

The Anti-thesis :
Music , harmony and song is deeply integrated into every human on an individual basis .
(Slave music)

Synthesis :
Popularity forces repetitiveness . Ease of replication enhances it .

Jazz :
The fusion .

Semi-classical composers teased out the repetitive elements out of Folk-music and patented it . Liszt etc .

Jazz musicians also tease it out , but retain individual sub-themes .

That's it .
I am not going to spell it out more .

Listen to it yourself .
