Music, and the Multipolar World.

Demirhan Baylan (2020) an instanbul based composer, musician and sound engineer writes that despite being deeply engraved to humanity’s history, with all the hype and economic power it commands throughout the world, music is still taken less seriously as a social subject. Perhaps this is because music has an almost uncontrollable ability to adapt, change, recreate and, more importantly, convince. It’s so slippery and abstract that we can hardly put a finger on it. It’s so deep that you need a theory or a belief system to hold onto, so as not to be rendered spellbound.
