I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: What is this ? Why is this happening ? Who are you people ?

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: life is a symphony... a long, elaborate musical composition, awash with noise and in need of occasional silence.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Fiddling in silence all day long.

Mr Wicketer
19/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: this is going to do nothing for us in terms of anything positive musically. nobody's going to think of any "new sounds" and it's not going to make what we listen to sound any better the next day. asking everyone to not listen to music for an entire day sounds like some ridiculous totalitarian scheme out of 1984 or fahrenheit 451.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: listening to music as much as i possibly can ALL. DAY. LONG.

Mary
19/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: They're is too much music, and information, both activated by myself or imposed on me by others in the media, in shops, on buses (far and away the worst place), on the tube etc. etc. I've found only two places to definitely avoid it; the local cemetery and Epping Forest!

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Playing no music myself or any radio on Tuesday (including news and talk stations). I will be going to a non-league football match in the evening but will cover my ears before the game to avoid any music played on the tannoy and at half-time will have to go into the bar for the same reason!

Sean P
19/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I will NOT actually be observing no music day because there will never be a day without music. The most horrible thing I could think of is a day without music.

BUT...

I respect the idea and personal need others may have for 'no music' day so I will not be playing any music out loud so that I will not disrupt anyone elses 'no music' day.

I hope this isn't offensive to the 'no music' day followers.

Thanks.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Currently workin as back-line tech on Chris De Burgh,s German tour, so this obviously doesn't apply to me, but will make it known to all crew and band members, this important day, in case of an accidental musical interlude.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Listening to the radio, because there really isn't any music on the radio anymore.

Rusty
17/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: how can we think, feel, enjoy something that is imposed on us, constantly, without discriminating if it is the right moment or type for you? I can't hear my thoughts!

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: trying not to listen to music, and if I DO hear some music (in the shops, on the train, from my neighbour's tv), I will complain, saying it is 'no music' day.

Ana
17/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: music is intertwined with my soul, and i could not go a day without it. when it is not playing live i ALWAYS have a song in my head. all you cocks that go on about 'yeah well 95% of music is commercial and forcefed' then i would say that you are not looking hard enough to find the music that you like. there are genres that i dont like, but i can see why someone would like them, so let each to thier own and fuck this no music day crap. its not even in aid of anything. if it was for deafness awareness i would understand, but this would be like a 24 famine for me. so no.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: listening to music. all day long. what a complete load of bollocks.

Kyle Donegn
16/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: it's true that music has become de-valued and de-mystified because of over saturation. our shaman no longer evolve on their own paths, they are harvested and exploited for the quick buck that can be made from their 15 minutes of fame... fast-food shamanism. it's like mcdonalds.. fills a hole but you feel dirty afterwards. what used to be art is now a meaningless commodity. people's attention spans have shrunk as they become increasingly desensitized. music is supposed to stimulate the imagination and fulfill your dreams and desires... the music industry has learned how to use your desire purely to make money... this is black magic.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: turning off any music that i hear and not playing my bass

charlie
16/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: music has become over saturated and stagnant. everything has been geared to the lowest common denominator (partly the fault of bill drummond and the klf?). as a musician i feel like a maggot.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: not playing or listening to any music and telling everyone i know to do the same. just say know!

ben
16/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I grow tired of people complaining "music has nothing new to offer." music is from all over the world, music has been composed for hundreds of years, and yet somehow people find a way to say "it all sounds the same." See music for what it is, either art or entertainment, enjoy it for what it is, and attempt to step out of the boundaries you yourself have created around your tastes and views of music, and start listening to music with passion that moves you, and please stop saying big music recording companies shove the same old stuff down your throats... you are in fact the one that chooses to swallow.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: listening to powerful music that moves me and makes me think.

Chris
16/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Mi music teacher informed us of the site and i have no other random stuff to do!

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: We need time to think.

Mark
16/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I would rather spend the day in a public washroom than spend a day without music.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: going to the bar to listen to live bands and to talk about how dumb the people who observe 'no music day' are

Kerry

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I work in the music industry

maco
15/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I spend most of my day listening to music in one way or another. I listen to it on my way to and from work, all day there and much of the time Im at home. I recently read a quote by Billy Childish saying that people don't really pay attention to the music they listen to anymore, it's so readily available. I don't really believe this. Music has always meant a lot to me and allows me to create whole worlds of meaning of what surround me. At the same time, I do like it also as background to working, travelling etc.
Sometimes I feel a bit like a junkie - music is just so integral to almost everything I do. So No Music Day should be a bit like cold turkey. I hope it will give me 24 hours to detox before I dip my head into the rushing river again....

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: I will get up to a regular alarm, leave the iPod at home, turn off the media player on my computer at work and stear clear of my turn table when I get home.

Cian
15/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: NO MUSIC DAY represents, to me, a pro-active step towards that happy day when NO MORE MUSIC IS MADE. Music has run its course, there's plenty already and by creating more we are actively destroying culture.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: I will simply not listen to any music, I will write to the local radio stations requesting their participation and I shall destroy all my cassettes.

Dan Connor
15/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I am constantly surrounded by and playing music by others or myself. I have only ever experienced muscial silence when out in the country away from the city that is untill I get in my car or put the ipod on. What does my life sound like with out my constant sound track, will I be able to survive and will I be better equipped to spot and appreciate quality music that does it for me and not because some one else is telling me to appreciate it?

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: not listtening to the radio, not watching TV / films, not going into shops / bars that are playing music, not using my ipod and not playing any muscial instrument.

Poul Wend Hansen
15/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I have been playing in bands for 14 years and it's time to give it a rest.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: taking a walk in the park and then the city and listening to the sounds. then i'll probably have a sandwich and feed the neighbor's cat.

stuart valentine
14/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Should read "I am NOT observing" no music day because it's likely to suck the phat one and I don't listen to the tripe that todays music industry spoon feeds the ignorant masses - F*ck You No Music Day!

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: I'll enjoy as much music as necessary on No Music Day because this is pointless drivel for the masses....

Dj TAB
14/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I feel that music s omnipresence in our world today devalues it and taking some space to reflect on music itself and my relationship to it would be something really constructive and ultimately very rewarding. I echo the (positive) comments made by the other visitors to this page and relish the chance to collectively revisit what our love of music is ultimately about.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: doing my best to avoid listening to music all day, primarily by not putting on any music myself and avoiding the routines, rituals and habits that i have around listening to music.

Chrissy C
14/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: The very notion of no music day is completely absurd, however maybe that is the very reason why it MUST be observed, if we can awake in ourselves any dormant creative ideas or concepts by rejecting for one day an activity we believe to be essential to our existence but in reality is maybe just a result of social programming, our minds may just be able to uncloud long enough to think about what we were searching for in the first place.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Not playing my guitar, not playing my stereo, not watching television, not humming, not whistling, not tapping my feet, not writing, maybe not even living (even in the practical sense although that may be a departure too far)

The Captain
14/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: steve

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Playing more music than I normally do, you pricks, if you organise a more music day I will sit in silence.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: repeatedly listening to that track by John Cage that doesn't have much going on.

NMD=lol
14/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Only in lands of the archaic and austere would I be in this situation. But I want to make the most of this day, a day to reflect on all things musical that I love, to see how much music moves me and makes me think. I want to come out of this day knowing what I want to listen to - what's will be even useful for me to listen to, and to give myself direction in what I'll pick up in the record shop.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Leave the walkman at home. Fingers in ears past blasting radios. Tutting at music teacher.

Pascal Ansell
10/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: quite frankly music has had it all its own way for too long and its about time people fought back.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: i will be stopping up my ears with limes.

paul
10/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: he wouldn't like that

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: not playing Luke Haines' new album

dan
10/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: i love music too much and it destroys me

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: writing a novel

Carl
10/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: ..of that very fact. We ignore these sounds in favour of what our 'taste' tells us, we reject them for the songs radio DJs tell us are the best song of the year, for music that a critic we have never met considers the creme de la creme. We ignore the world around is and replace it with synthesised mush, be it a Mozart Piano Concerto, a Brash Punk Band or a Feel Friendly pop tune.
Whilst i do not (and will never) consider the sounds i will hear on that sunday to be music (no matter what Cage says) i do believe what many people who have signed up to this cause believe- there can be too much of a good thing:-music is the most soul inspiring and moving of forces known to man. It is also sometimes the dullest and blandest form of entertainment avaliable.Perhaps as a society we should realise this from time to time.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: ...whoa hold on..context first. I am a music student at huddersfield. This year i am stewarding at the 26th annual Contemporary music festival (world famous don't you know) and i've already signed up for several concerts of high class contemporary music,including a near midnight performance of Lucier's Still Lives on the night of the 21st.
Therefore, i will be holding/observing No Music Day on Sunday the 3rd of December, due to scheduling problems.
I will take between 1, but no more than 5 tape recorders into my nearby wood and record the sound of nature-birds speaking,river flowing, leaves rustling,trees creaking,mud squelching and all the sounds that the world holds for us that we ignore the beauty of on a daily basis.
I will then takes these tapes back to my house and play them on relay for the rest of the day.

PATRICK ALLISON
9/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I've said it all above. good luck to everyone.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: avoiding all music. this is a fantastic idea. I love music, always have but recently, despite having a huge music collection, spend ages choosing something to listen to. I feel jaded by music. It's all too accessible, I'm rarely surprised anymore and need a break from it. It'll be interesting to see how the day goes. I may even extend it, or have a 'music fast' more often.

pearl
9/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Lets face it 95% of music out there is forced upon you, its usually manufactured by a big corporation to pull in the crowd followers making them mega bucks, and lets face it, it sucks. We don't want it, and if people were given real music as opposed to the generic stuff we'd all be a lot happier and have a lot more soul. Music makes things happen.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Not putting the radio on, setting a normal alarm clock to wake me up.

Da void
8/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: music is devalued and cheapened by its availability through recordings and by the lack of investment and effort required of the listener to procure and consume said recordings.
meanwhile, in the city, recorded music is unavoidable and unceasing. i have found that this, and the advent of the iPod as musical supermarket [shoplifting] trolley [retrieve and consume - anything at all - no effort required] has driven me right away.
the modern world has become musically obese on a diet of junk sound.
HOW TO MAKE MUSIC SPECIAL AGAIN - DIET TIPS:
- don't listen to music where the performer is not in the same room as you
- restrict music consumption to live music only
- avoid music from loudspeakers amd headphones
- if you listen to music recordings, make sure you have made some effort so as to deserve to - like you might record yourself playing music; or do some work to earn the money to pay for the record.
you'll undoubtedly hear less music, but it will sound better and you'll feel both the affect and effect much more.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: in full support of the idea of a 'no music day', i will make sure i play music with friends on the following day - 22 nov.

music lover 1961
7/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: it would be absolutely incredible if even 10% of the constant drone of music could just be removed. also, i fancy a change in career, so doing this will probably get me sacked, which will speed things along a bit

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: not turning on the mixing desk at the music venue i engineer sound at

dougie fairgrieve
7/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: **** says they have "THAT SOUNDTRACK" moment...but for fucks sake no-one would want to play them in a movie...blank screen-no sound would sum up that life

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: switching off other peoples noise

steve
6/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: who doese not like music? are you stupid or something???

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: this is fucked up

hihih
4/11/2006

 

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: No recoreds of mine will be played. No generic organised sound will distract me from my thought. I will use this, what many people would see as a constriction, as a space where I am free to think about what I want; both from music and in life.

Sandy Power
4/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: FUCK THIS!

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: This is the most looney crap I've ever heard. I'm a musician so this is quite farfetched. Music is soulfood, it can change lives. Music saves lives. You could be killing someone by participating in this rediculous charade.

Mike
1/11/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Music makes the people come together.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Writing a computer virus that will spread and infect machines, deleting all audio files on NO MUSIC DAY.

Marcus
31/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: pop music - maybe all music - works in the service of THE SPECTACLE. Read Guy Debord if this doesn't make sense...

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: forcing anyone who sings "Happy Birthday" to me to pay royalties to Michael Jackson. I believe he owns the rights. And, yes, Nov 21 is my birthday.

toby dyter
31/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: FUCK YOU. THIS HOLLIDAY MAKES NO SENSE.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Turning my amp to ELEVEN!!!!

smtb987
31/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Sometimes, no music is far better than having to hear the same track on the radio for the third time and having no music all day adds a cut off point to be reckoned with.
Celebrate in silence!

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Not turning my stereo on and leaving my mp3 player alone. It's a Tuesday, and we all know that nothing really happens on a Tuesday unless you make it happen.

Chay
31/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: i do not need a day of no music, because it is always in my head. i do not need a day without music because i know how valuable music is to my soul. i do not need a day without music bucause if i had a day without music i may kill my boss. my headphones keep her inane chattering from getting in, therefore saving her own boring life.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: listening to music

liz von panties
30/10/2006

 

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: I'll be trying not to listen to music, but it's hard because there'll be music coming out of car stereos and shops and peoples mouths. I guess I could take the day off work, but then a car may pass playing music, or birds might sing outside. Maybe I should buy some earplugs, but then I will be hearing music in my head. Does that count?
I'll give it a try though.

James
29/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: So I can value music - if familiarity breeds content, then surely the opposite is true.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Well it will be difficult - if you take John Cage's 4'33" into consideration, all sound is music. But then it came to me - wear my Sennheiser headphones, but don't attach them to an iPod, walkman, or any other sound source. It will partially ruin the ambient sounds around me as well. It's either that, ot sleep through the day, but the risk with that is that dreams don't recognise a "No music day"

Gerard Oates
28/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I think we forget just how much music affects our lives. Its hard to go a whole day without some ditty playing somewhere in the background. Im a huge music fan and it wont hurt to starve myself of the notes of the western scale just once in awhile. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Or is that Absinthe makes your bark louder?.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Not playing my guitar, by not listening to any music whatsoever, not muting the start and end of TV programmes. Clearing my head of all tunes that circle around my head.

Paul
28/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: it's an excellent way of finding perspective about how stagnant music has become.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: not going into University as I am a music student, not listening to music, not playing music, just musing music.


28/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I thought it was because I've got older (I'm not old yet). Music sounds like wallpaper (most of it) - a tired piece of chewing gum with no flavour. Same old same old. Unless it's heart-felt. Listened to Georges Moustaki the other day (wasn't my CD) - I was touched by the oldness, the rounded character of the poetry (leave me alone if I don't make sense). Palpable atmosphere - I could sense myself falling in love with the man's ability to tell a story - crap maybe (I don't care anymore). How about improv? There's something in it - can't bare the shallowness of the 3 and a half minute sound byte - too predictable - feel like topping myself if music can't send me into paroxizms (can't spell) of enlightenment no more - maybe we can give birth to something else through this insurrection. Hope so.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Not playing music unless I do so by accident

Gina Langton
27/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: The comodification of what has given my life meaning seems to be stripping the impact of what should be the most powerful medium available. Music should not be understood principally as the theme to a computer game, film or tv show. A greater appreciation of silence will perhaps bring us a more whole understanding of the power of music.
After all, it is the silence between the notes which makes the piece...

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Thinking about the nature and purpose of music in my life.

Yin>
27/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Real music is being obscured by ubiquitous bite-size emoticon sound that impersonate passion and feeling. All music is noise, but this music is only noise. Life has its own incredible sountrack. I intend to listen to it for one day. Then rise anew, rejoin the fray and party.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Dreaming of hotels,restaurants,football grounds, TV programmes,shopping malls,mobile ringtones and firework displays failing miserably for the lack of loud meaningless drivel pumping out at me for absolutely no good reason AT ALL. PARDON? EH!?

Nick Harper
26/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: It's an adequate demonstration of just how horrible life would be without it. One day of fasting to show how desolate a lifetime would be, and how important music is.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Trying not to hum quietly to myself.

EO

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: CDs and their packaging can now be recycled. I no longer have to throw them from the window like a frisbee.
The European market for music CDs is rapidly expanding: almost 2.9 billion compact discs were produced in Western Europe in 1998. While this means that there is , for example, a huge range of high quality European pop music available, it also means that there are problems if people produce CDs that I don't like.
In response to growing environmental issues, a UK company, Polymer Reprocessors of Merseyside, has created a specialist system to decollate and recycle compact discs. As a result, 100 per cent of all materials from cased CDs are recycled for use in new applications. The Company's high security system removes the need to use landfill, incineration or creative disposal as part of the process and is already being used in the UK by the three largest international music companies whose artist roster have clearly been filling landfill sites faster than anyone else.
In addition to providing a cost effective, entertaining and environmentally friendly method of disposal, the system produces high quality crystal polystyrene pellet used in the manufacture of such product as CD cases and artificial wood.
Polycarbonate derived from the discs themselves is currently being used in alarm panels and lighting lenses. The Company has a fully auditable security system, tracking discs through all stages of the process, from decollation through to the point where their data is destroyed, at which stage certificates of destruction are issued to the manufacturers.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Selecting 5 cds I am sick of listening to, hearing about, or even looking at, and I will post the cds to:
Polymer Reprocessors Limited

Reeds Lane

Moreton, Wirral

CH46 1DW
Telephone: +44 (0)151 707 3684

http://www.polymer-reprocessors.co.uk
On arrival the cds will be destroyed and 100% of the parts will be recycled. I will spend the rest of the day enjoying life without music.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I cannot listen to music too often. It affects my nerves and makes me want to say sweet nothings and stroke the heads of men who live in a dirty hell and can still create such beauty. But these days you can't go around stroking people's heads lest your hand be bitten off. You have to smash them over the headsmash them without mercy even though in theory we are against every form of oppression of mankind . . . ours is a hellish task.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Arming myself with a knife or a gun then lying in wait outside the homes of the poets and artists and musicians and stabbing or shooting them until they are dead.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Even though i am young, i can appriciate that music is something that should be respected. It is a personal and beautiful thing. It shouldn't be trivialised by becoming the soundtrack to an otherwise dull day. In a nutshell, i believe that No Music Day could help preserve the sacredness of music.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: probably physically restraining myself from picking up my guitar, and walking out of any room with music playing.
Although i believe this may be a hard pledge to maintain in future years, as i plan to pay the bills by recording and producing music. It's worth a shot anyway!

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: The music is all around us how can we aviod this. Music is our life our happyness. The question is can we really do without music on this day.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: It made me laugh. Seriously, one of the loveliest ways of communication between human beings? What's next? No talking day? Not-being-friendly day? No breathing day? Music makes the world turn round, and people creating a day without music are prone to locking away in a nuthouse, IMO.
IZ.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Making music, as always.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: some music matters and I want to remind myself why

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: going to find somewhere silent, on my own, where there is no risk of ipods, shameless advertising, mg cars and boy racers blasting hard house, utterly banal and pointless myspace acts with 7000 indifferent 'friends', or seeing a previously admirable band's soul drip onto the floor as they perform on the sharon osbourne show.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: This is the stupidest thing I ever heard! Music is a traditional, meditational and relaxing thing. NO DAY WITHOUT MUSIC PLEASE! NO MUSIC DAY SUCKS!

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: NEVER NEVER NEVER!

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Most music seems banal and pointless, obviously there are great recordings out there and being done but. Music is now a commodity to be consumed like a fashion accessory, completely vaccuous and all image no substance. I hope that by observing no music day we can make a statement about the above. And perhaps I may find some much needed inspiration.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: By trying to avoid hearing any music at all. And contemplating whether any new muisc can actually be made without recycling the old.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I can't get the damned Star Spangled banner out of my bleeding head today (and it is bleeding). I am not even American. Is this some kind of symptom of psychologic/psychic warfare from the CIA? Who knows. God Bless No Music Day (Christ, it's got to me you knoooooowwwww!).

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: spending the day in my car. The radio has been broken for a year. So you could say I've been celebrating no music day en route for some time now!

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: a bit of peace and quiet wouldn't go amiss, and it's good to be a part of this... St.Cecilia is probably now in Heaven bringing herself to a climax with a drumstick. She could do with a bit of peace and quiet too!

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: sweating & fretting over how not to listen to music as i will be @ college being taught how to best use logic pro sequencing program... I will try to summon my best zenanarchic brain powers in order to do so!

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: moments of silence are incredibly useful. you cannot close your ears. or you sense of touch. but one day a year is pretty poor going.
try and get some moments of utter stillness as often as you can.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: making noise...

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: The radio's shit anyway. And some music is great but can be listened to far too many times resulting in it being completely ruined. Finally, because my ears need a rest.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Avoiding going to choir and not turning on the computer and going onto itunes the second I get home. Also, I will not talk about music or play my guitar or any other instruments I own.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: In rehearsing and practicing we use our musles and minds to prepare for performances, recials, etc... This will be time for muscle and mind healing. Giving the body a break. Giving us a chance to start fresh and tackle the next musical journey.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: I am a music teacher. I will will be observing No Music Day by closing my studio and music department for a full 24 hours.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: it s good to be home alone, for a moment. Because the saturday night lasts such a long time, so many years, and i can t dance anymore. But you can hear music so easily in any sound. There are no NO MUSIC DAYS.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: listening to the real world. And by listening to myself.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I like no-days, although they frighten me as much as anyone else. Shut the pubs and shops ten times a year. What are all those people doing down town on sunday afternoon? Buying the same socks and cds they could buy on saturday or monday probably. And, people, unplug your i-pods! The city makes more interesting noises than corporate pop.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: turning off the music in the restaurant, listening to the dreaded sound of cutlery on plates instead. This is serious martyrdom stuff, I can tell you.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Just wondering what it will be like to spend the whole day without hearing any music whatsoever.
It's probably going to be quite quiet.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Avoiding all forms of music, whether live, recorded, broadcast or otherwise. This means wearing earplugs wherever there is the slightest chance I may be in danger of being exposed to music.
This is going to be pretty hard as I teach music at a college...Shit...I'm going to have to get my students to observe No Music Day too. It's gonna be an interesting day....I'm going to need loads of earplugs too...

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I can read Adorno and get his point. I see (and hear) evidence of his theories around me everyday. Becasue i wonder what adverts would be like if they didn't have msuic on them.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Not listening to a record that i have listened to almost everyday since i was given a copy back at the end of April. Everytime i listen to it i love it a bit more. Perhaps having a day off will enhance that.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Everything that gets in abundance gets cheap, deflated and unappreciated - taken for granted. One wouldn't think this would apply to a "thing" like music, but it does. And if you're addicted to music, that's not good either. The only thing worth getting addicted to is air (by Bach.....!) No, just kidding.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Not listening to music, try at least. And also observing others to see whether they a) have caught the message b) actually take it seriously.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I love music so much.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: listening to music, music is the world to me and my mood is dependent on music, bad music makes my mood bad and good mosic makes me in a good mood. I use hours aday listening to and discovering and looking for new music. I can see that many people like this idea but it is not for me.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: I'm gonna turn on the stereo while I'm making my breakfast, I'm gonna bring my iPod when I go out, and I'm gonna turn the stereo back on when I go home. If you really love music, you can't make it through a whole day without it!

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I will not participate. No Music Day is silly... plus it coincides with No Pants Day, which requires music for the customary No Pants Day Dance and that would not be the same without the song to go with it.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Doing my usual routine for that day.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: As Sting once put it: "True spirituality is found in silence, music only serves to enhance silences." God speaks to us, but we are to noisy to hear it. Also, my ears need a bloody rest, plus I will be cramming for my history-finals, so no distractions will be a welcome thing.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Not listening to music in any way, form or shape. That probably means staying in bed all day, which I'm quite prepared to do:-)
