If you think our ship is sinking…

… it might be appropriate to dance a last tango on the disproportional Titanic. Let’s keep dancing on the sinking system of unlimited gain until salty water fills the violins and turns down their sound. If you think we’re not sinking yet, there are more options.

The violinist could decide to practice just a little bit less for just a few years and help everybody else to disempower the captain’s crew, instead. Afterwards the instrument will miraculously sound better than before. It will be played more determined in posture, stance, attitude and countenance. That fundament of grassroots politics can’t be developed inside the political context. It can through art.

Music is neither sounding wallpaper (I. Kant) nor a mathematical description of time. Music is about posture in a very physical and direct sense. I perceive the body of a music as that music’s statement, consciously or not.
