   While I tend to agree with DJ's arguments that all new music is
deriviative, when he talks about how there is absolutly no new musical areas
to be explored, I can't help but think about the parallels between music and
film. When sound was added to film many years back, there was a rather

advanced as far as it could. They thought that there was nothing that sound
could add to the movie experience, other than pure novelty value.
Obviously, they were very, very wrong.....
