Makes me remember last year when I was reminded (by the advertising  
at a festival I was attending) that "some music is interesting  
because it sounds unpleasant". That line really made me stop and  
think for a while. Now, related to Kris' post you should not forget  
that some people listen to music to gain feelings of well being,  
while others may also listen to music as a way of undertaking a risky  
somewhat painful journey to explore unknown territories.

According to your definitions, Kris, I guess I'm the kind of person  
that don't care much about how some music was created.

Of course an exception is conceptual arts, but then it's up to the  
artist to make any important concept explicit to the consumer.

When there is something to watch that relates to the music generation
process, folks are more inclined to pay attention.  One problem with
electronic music (I reckon that's most of us) is that there is less to
God bless 'em, they just can't pay attention.

PS I am in San Diego, where mediocrity is king.  It's tough playing
interesting music anywhere.
