ENDLESS FORMS
(Tulsa, OK)
This is true: In town there is an alleyway courtyard shared by two restaurants with patios. Both restaurants have an outdoor speaker system and play different radio stations at the same time. Different songs overlap and it is incredibly overstimulating. The patios illustrate that it has become worth asking the strange question of “Is there too much music in the world?” Not because there necessarily is, or even that there ever could be, but because silence and purpose have become increasingly rare-found gifts in the world. Anymore, to add noise may be to subtract silence from the world, and what a shame for art to be reduced to mere pollution."
