In spite of evolution and revolution, technology and ideology, hierarchy and power, economics and justice the innate quality of music has remained. Doing innovative things in new ways, disrupting the established system, and being at the forefront of technological progress constitutes the musical imperative.
Music demands innovation, it is fundamentally “Open Source” because music needs the community to imitate, iterate, contribute and improve.
