Essays and rock & roll. Looking and listening. Nostalgia versus skepticism. Sound and sense.
Apropos lines from Max Loehr: "If the content of a work of art is 'given with its form' (and only with its form), it can only be experienced in a work, an actual work of art. For 'expression' is no act of the pure mind, but, as Louis Arnaud Reid said, 'a progressive discovery through manipulation of real material.' In other words, there is no intrinsic meaning or substance that is not tied to artistic form. When the form changes, content also changes."
