Paying Attention


If you want someone to pay attention you have to give them something to pay attention to.  I heard a radio panel last night on the subject of fragmentation, short attention spans, people's unwillingness (inability?) to sit through anything longer than 45 seconds.
Doesn't anyone notice that everything that comes to us via media production sounds essentially the same?   There is no reason to pay attention to things that sound all more or less identical.
I have a friend who continually sends out links to YouTube performances.  Granted the music is always great, the performances perhaps spectacular, as he insists.  But the quality that makes the music great, or that distinguishes the performances is hardly evident on that medium.  Sorry.  
It leaves me cold.  Just as TV sound did when I was a child.  
Nothing happening.
But ring a bell, for instance......ah!
