    If you had to forfeit one of recorded music or photographs (ie recorded still images), which would it be? An optional why would be good too.

    @blech having thunk about this I've decided on music, because you can still see live performances.

  4. @blech I'd forfeit recorded music. Photos are my main way of gathering data when I'm exploring. Without recorded music, I could still sing.

  5. @blech still images. it's easier to look around and see wonderful things with own eyes, than to hear wonderful things.

  6. @blech Recorded music, without question. Why? Reproducibility within tolerable thresholds. There are no scores for photographs.

  7. @blech also, recorded music wins because it incorporates time.

  8. @blech I would keep photographs, music you can usually find again, but you cant take the same photo.

  9. Thanks for the interesting answers so far. If you didn't see the question: which would you give up, recorded music or photographs? (Why?)

  10. @blech photography. It would be a wrench but I couldn't live without music.

  12. @blech photographs, but you knew that. music does much more than evoke emotion. and i can't remember the last time i danced to a photo.

  13. @blech That's hard. I think I'd keep the photos. Because they're more personal I guess?

  16. @I_like @blech yes keep the photos. I made them. The music is secondary. But tbh the music moves me way more than any photo could.

  18. @blech photos. There are substitutes for photos but no substitutes for music by specific (dead) performers or specific performances

  19. @blech @antimega I agree with Chris. There are lots of other kinds of visual art for capturing something, not so many kinds of sounds.

    @antimega @blech this is of course while I'm in possession of all my senses. Blind or deaf people may think otherwise.

  20. @blech I can recall music I like, but a world with _no_ photos would be hard to grapple with—like going back to Lynx browser for everything.
