First, I'd have to examine how dependent I am on electricity. Then I
go back and reread all of my John Cage books. Maybe I would disown the
notion that I actually get to 'make' the music. But I doubt it.
I believe that all art, fundamentally, is a response to terror. Before
electricity, people made wonderful music. No need to get cliche-fever
that. I'm pretty sure that Erik Satie, for instance, broke as he often
did not depend on 120VAC to compose.
I have a lovely Martin, and as dependent as I am on the American power
there is no electric instrument I have that sounds quite like it. Perhaps
the consequence of unplugging for me as a guitarist is more content over
