Re: My rant on today's pop music
Bermuda, you have a unique perspective on this compared with a number of other high-level players, in that you don't just have to play the songs you're asked to, but you have to really nail the parts.
So this is my question. How do you cope with a piece that has been deliberately quantised to Hell and back again? Are you inclined to attempt to humanise it or do you prefer to play it absolutely back to the original? I ask this because I want to know your (obviously contextual) perspective on the quantising issue. I have no specific bias personally - I have written a lot of electronic music in the last few years and I've taken both programming approaches, but is the 'perfect time' tool used too much when it's actually entirely unnecessary?
