One should not forget that in a musical context referred to as
"songwriting" the fidelity may not be of importance for what is
normally experienced as "the artform".

Compare that to a musical context sometimes referred to as "sound art"
and you may find that fidelity can actually be an important factor in
what is experienced as "the artform".

Sorry for stating the obvious, but I'd just like to add this fact for
the record.

As a musician it is important to remember that people experience music
in a totally subjective way, filtered through their own mind. I
remember so many occasions where me and some friends have listened to
wonderfully poly rhythmic music and my pals turn to me and say "to me
this just sounds like randomly banging on stuff". ;-)
