Why are older music fans (and musicians) having a hard time grasping contemporary music? Among the many topics trumpeter / composer / recording artist / educator / producer / journalist Ben Neill discusses with hosts David C. Gross and Tom Semioli include the emerging role (and popularity) of timbre in modern pop compositions and recordings in comparison to the standard elements of melody, rhythm, and harmony (“the sound is the hook!”); the effects of technology on music composition and consumption, the evolution (or de-evolution) of song-form, and the future of “live” performances, among other riveting subjects.
