Default Re: When does sound become music

Jim, I'll pile on as a fan of your post. This passage puts it perfectly:

"I believe Zappa had the best take on this, mainly that art is all about the frame. The act of putting a figurative frame around something is what makes that something art. My point being that the "act of framing" is intent and there is no intent without agency."

If you intend a work to be music, then that's what it is. The quality of that music is a whole other matter, partially subjective and partially objective.
