I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

In essence, the world is fucked up and you can either ignore it, become cynical or bitter about it.
Deep down, we're all dumbassses who act like shittheads

The problem with art these days is that the simplest art is judged to be the most profound. This made sense initially (think 4'33'), but, now, it's been beaten to death many times over.
Lying on the hill, crawling over the windowsill into your living room, they stare out, glass-eyed aimless heads, bodies torn by vultures. You are the man whose hands are rank with the smell of death. - Peter Hammill, "The Emperor in His War Room"

As a professional classical composer, I would like to weigh in on this.

I firmly believe that all art and music should be assessed based on a the combination of objectivist and experiential standards.

To put this into simpler terms, whether a piece of art is good and valuable should be based on the quality of experience it gives to the viewer and listener. Secondly, it should be assessed based on the skill and craftsmanship invested into the work.

Under this criteria, a blank painting or a painting with two colored stripes on it would be considered low quality because it generates little in terms of an artistic experience, and the effort and craftsmanship that went into creating the work is low.

It is a simple way of ranking artistic creation that has met with great resistance in certain artistic circles. The video below (not mine) speaks on this subject and provides more insight.

Either you like it or not, it's that simple.
if others calls it "true art" when you think it's bullsh!it, who is correct, you or them? Both?
The answer is Yes.
It's all in the eyes/ears of the beholder.
Bronto?
Congrats.
