One Response to “Playlists for August 5-9: Get the Picture?”

    Since it is impossible to find the blog for this week’s playlist, I am leaving my comment here for “get the picture.” Whatever do you mean by “get the picture”? Music, the invisible art, surely cannot picture anything visually; the “language of music” is not a visual language no matter how much music world people insist that it can–for them. Music is continually referred to as “picturing” just as absolute music is said to have “contents” other than music: both are stipulated not audial.
