A Farmer Goes to a Rock Concert

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the experiences of a farmer (essentially the author) who attends a rock concert. It advises future rock concert attendees never to sit at the front row, in order to avoid looking up into a wall of loudspeakers that are taller than a barn. Based on the author's perception, a rock concert is full of sounds of unreasoned animality relieving the tensions of rationality and is art unfolding.

Keywords: music; farmer; rock concert; sounds; tensions; rationality; art unfolding
