    Nile can't make a mean song anymore. You wonder if that's because he wasn't the one who pointed out how things weren't always fun.

    do you form these dyads in your head too? got any examples?
    I think I've spent most of this thread framing such dyads in terms of their personalities rather than their artistic style -

    do you think that Wiley's 'inward direction' can be discerned in the music he makes? in the intensity, circularity and compression of his loops and even his flow? or is it just a career thing - dizzee's 'outward' direction allowing him to make songs with Calvin Harris and James Corden? (The price of freedom lol)

    Caught a bit of a documentary about 'graceland' on bbc4 the other night - there was an interesting bit about the south african band having a conversation with each other using their guitars.

    i tend to think of music as quite abstract, even when it's emotional, but

    i suppose i'm just thinking of how these dyads relate to personality and music/art - if they're mainly creations of the observers

    The real risk is not changing. I have to feel that Im after something. If I make money, fine. But Id rather be striving. Its the striving, man, its that I want.
