Hello,

I just found this comment today elsewhere and I think it's key (pardon the pun) to encapsulating differences between music and sonic art. It's a comment which probably derives from the idea some people have that music and sound are actually synonymous - an argument used to justify calling sonic art 'music' - which I personally don't believe it is. Here's the quote: Music isn’t sound. It’s a form of thought. Sound is merely how it is conveyed. The basis of this argument, I think, is that music develops ideas in a linear and horizontal fashion and is intrinsically narrative in thought and based on established theories and ideas.
