What about dissonance? If you dig even further down to find the true surface of what really blew up music in the early years of the post-Hiroshima century, isn't it dissonance, even more than "minimalism"?

I'll take dissonance. The same pure element that made "Rocket 88" the true birthpoint of Rock and/or Roll is also the same pure element that made "Quartet For The End Of Time" the ultimate Mothership Connection. No more perfect fifths, ever--gimme that third that forever dances on the edge between "major" and "minor"!

I, of course, am only half joking. Thurston Moore taught me everything I know about truly modern music. He's the one who is, in fact, actually joking.

It's true!
