A few months ago I Was talking to someone about the difference between different types of music and how there are similarities between bordering countries and their music and wondered if maybe tracing cultural music and it's transformation over time would be useful for historical accuracy reasons.
They said that all music before technology was mostly the same because technology radically changed music and that's why they all sound so similar anyways and kind of brushed it aside. At the time I thought that was a great idea actually.
But now I'm realizing it was a misinformed idea. Traditional folk music is not all the same. It's a matter of resolution and context.
It's really aggravating me and I kind of feel like calling the person and telling them the negatives of their idea about technology. I could be wrong of course, and I have self-control but is this an example of ocd? I can't stop thinking about it.
