I agree by disagreeing Noise music can be highly artistic and "musically" (or rather structurally) pleasing, if well done.
Granted though, there are more dilettants in noise music than in commercial pop or rock.
We have many truly outstanding songs in pop music, next to 95+ percent of utter crap. And likewise, 95+ percent of noise music is really bad -- or, worse even, plain boring. The same holds for free improvisation, which often is more interesting to the people making it than the people watching/listening to it.
And "no" again: Art can easily be discussed and, more importantly, it needs to be critiqued to be meaningful.
The problem is that some "artists" simply don't like being critiqued and, in ridiculous demeanour, try to deflect and hide behind the veil of alleged artistry
P.S.: The critique in this post does not refer to the music in the link of the OP. I haven't even watched the video yet.
I've met several artists (particularly painters) who denied me the right to criticize their production because I don't have a deep enough knowledge of "art". I agree that artistic perception includes a dose of acquired taste, but OTOH, I don't need to be a hen to enjoy my eggs.
- The thumps when player hits empty valves on the horn are a bit weird, yet interesting.
Maybe I should have put some emoticons in my comments. I've met several artists (particularly painters) who denied me the right to criticize their production because I don't have a deep enough knowledge of "art".
It reminds me (a little) of this concert I attended last March, a new musical instrument competition at Georgia Tech:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EUHqy_QmHk
I guess if these nice microphones could talk, they would say "get me out of here".
