Richard Mellish The fine line between MUSIC and NOISE! (53* d) RE: The fine line between MUSIC and NOISE! 18 Mar 19


A few weeks ago I was staying in an inn. All was fine except on the Friday evening when there was a hell of a din. Some men (whom I hesitate to call musicians) were doing their stuff at one end of the bar. My room was on the next floor, above the other end of the bar. If the "music" had been something that I wanted to listen to, the sound level in my room would have been about right.

I was once told that the reason for loud music in pubs is to force patrons to shout at each other, making their throats sore so they buy more drinks. But that shouldn't apply to concerts.

Despite all the good things that electronics now allows us to enjoy, I sometimes wish that amplifiers had never been invented.
