Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

Brian Eno

I’m struck by the insidious, computer-driven tendency to take things out of the domain of muscular activity and put them into the domain of mental activity. The transfer is not paying off. Sure, muscles are unreliable, but they represent several million years of accumulated finesse. Musicians enjoy drawing on that finesse, and audiences respond to its exercise, so when muscular activity is rendered useless, the creative process is frustrated.
