"who are the brain police?"
Marvelous. As a child I was exposed to the more 'regular' classical music and when I first encountered Stravinski's music, it laid harsh upon my ears. However, I soon can to enjoy this neoclassical music greatly.I still cannot get my ears around 'straight' 12-tone music as in Berg and Shoenberg. The dabblings of Stravinski into this tonal music is less strident for me.
That was part of my serious musical education...I love 12 tone stuff and played in group in NYC for a while that experimented with 12 tone improvisational theory in a funk rock format....Hard to imagine? Not if you heard it...it rocked!It was fun because once you got behind the theory, as a bassist in the band, I could play constantly shifting patterns that always interlocked magically with the other players. When we found an interlocking pattern that was really magically dynamic, it would become a basis for a composition.
