What Difference Does It Make

Seems a good question to ask after reading this piece which raises an existential question on the value of the arts. (Though the logical conclusion of that article is that any activity that isn't humanitarian is a waste.)

I think there are many benefits from making music, an activity Stephen O'Malley suggests has been part of human activity of a very long time in the doco above. I think it's disappointing more people don't make their own music, since most enjoy it but seem to have internalised a judgment that they're not a musician. I say music is too much fun not to have a go.
