Default Re: Art and Music

The difference being - as I see it - art exists for no other purpose than itself, whereas music is expected to entertain the masses. Artists usually have less restraints on their output. It really is as simple as that.

'Music was born free, and to win freedom is its destiny'. (Ferrucio Busoni)

'Free improvisation is almost by definition outsider music, opposed to capitalist business-as-usual. Improvisers want to explore the possibilities of the instant - in this space, using these instruments, with this audience (or lack of it)'. [...] Free Improvisation doesn't guarantee any particular sound or mood, it produces a question mark rather than a commodity.' (Ben Watson)

'Notation is to improvisation as the portrait is to the living model'. (Ferrucio Busoni)

Look up Laszlo Moholy-Nagy as well.
