I had a great time downtown at the Bang on a Can Marathon on Sunday with a caveat. Like some people, my problem with some new music is that it becomes a big bore and letdown if it takes itself too seriously. I’m not talking about the abandonment of popular music structure which some people can’t get around. Having mostly fallen in love with music through pop and rock, very serious performances that obviously take a lot of training and work to achieve fall flat if the performers don’t make it look effortless and joyful. The fun disappears and where’s the fun in that? Maybe I’ll write more about this soon.
