Aural Flares

Discovering sounds all around

What Goldstein connects to is the idea that all music, all sound lives inextricably not just in the human psyche, but in the human anatomy as well. In that realm he identifies more closely with folk music than with classical.

Where the classical tradition is drawn from a narrow focus on expression, Goldstein explains, folk music is drawn from a penetrating response to the artist's environment. As a result the musician must take in as much as he gives out.

To best illustrate what he means, Goldstein paraphrases Jean Genet, who wrote about Palestinian soldiers improvising songs while in the desert in his book Prisoner of Love.

"Genet observed that new music is not something that is invented," Goldstein says. "But rather it is something that is inpeople, and all a composer does is to make apparent the external things that are already in people."
