Saturday morning quotes 3.52: Art is for all
This post marks the conclusion of three full years of weekly Saturday morning quotes. While our subject matter frequently draws upon the wisdom of the ancients, from time to time we are compelled to comment on current events and attitudes that affect the way we impose the aesthetics of old music upon modern ears.
As we conclude this eventful year and look hopefully to a less troublesome future, we note with disappointment that today’s economic issues are seriously affecting the status of the arts, rendering them inaccessible to the 99-percent.
“The dehumanisation of a class is about more than grinding away at their jobs, education and health. It’s also about the erosion of their spirit, voice and hinterland. In this way, it’s horrifying that the working classes appear to be being “bred out” of key branches of the arts; at the very least priced out.”
While the financial burden of surviving as an artist is in fact limiting the very nature of art that is available, we remain committed to presenting our music as an example of how low-technology art fulfills our human need for communication of honest emotional content.
The first of our three recording projects for 2014 is now available, and it represents the purest form of honest and direct music – a solo voice recorded live with no electronic enhancements.
Experience this recording of music in its purest form, and help preserve working-class artistry by buying the recording directly from the artist.
