Thread Name: 1954 and All That - defining folk music
Subject: RE: 1954 and All That - defining folk music
Well, I just looked at and listened to 'Fylde Coast, March 27th 2009' and I now know why you and I will never agree on an appropriate definition for Folk Music.

"Anyway, the music was realised by filtering & looping one of my rubber squeaky penguin toys as a real-time improvisation on my lap-top by way of an analogous folk process."

Sorry, but there is no 'folk process' - analogous or otherwise - involved in running random sounds through a computer program. Interesting, even mesmerizing, but not folk.
