Re: Great speech video on "Sound"

I concur with Kev here.. it's one of the things I have been thinking  
about while reading this thread.. but, I think I resolved part of the  
problem by moving the word 'meaning' from an intellectual context to  
an emotional one.. and therefore, the meaning of my work is emotional  
response.. otoh, maybe the meaning (ie. my meaning) of my work is  
'satisfying an internal need of expression'.. where-as anyone else  
listening brings their own meaning to it.. and, thus we revolve back  
to the 'subjective'.. :)
