    The Art is developing your own "system of rules" that support your own theory.... Thelonious Monk was the poster child for this.

    Nah, it just creates an n + 2 theory. Those who believe in n + 1 will still have n + 1 to keep them content and their significant others on edge.

    I hear you, Ed--that's exactly what kept me from entering law enforcement. I just wanted to carry a gun and tell people what to do....

    At the time it paid nearly twice a teacher's salary, and continued to pay more. Now I'll just take the "wild" side when it comes to music and play music however I want to and can ... but I wouldn't dare call it improvisation. Currently my interests are polyharmonic attempts (the melody in one key and the harmonics in another). I'm the not the first to attempt this I'm sure. I guarantee I'm not the only one that ignores the rules and regimens of music, but since I play for my own enjoyment no one will arrest me.

    maybe for YOU -- but not for me -- YOU see, I only have 1 of me (THE PLAYER) and the 1 of me is fading away. SO I therefore have to look for alternatives that theoretically can make me a better player -- even if my abilities are declining ----- so you end up with N+1 (and for some people they also have the MPC+1) -- so because we are (the PLAYER) in some sort of variable -- --we need corresponding EQUIPMENT to offset that -- N+1, MPC+1 ARE DEFINITLY HERE TO STAY ((and that is 100%) ROFL ROFL ROFL

    Yeah, Euclid's postulates of doubling the cube, squaring the circle, and tri-secting the angle without calibrated instruments has been accomplished by Maurice Kidjel with whom I've personal acquaintance.

    Mathematics and music do bear a face, as my Gramps said. But I like Pythagoras meself.....

    The N+1, especially with mouthpieces, will be around forever, lazy and insolent lot that we are.
