I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: This really provokes me and I will make a statement against you because of it.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Playing Deep Purple as loud as I can on every music player available. You guys suck and I think you should be ashamed of yourselves.

Adrian Cronauer
23/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I believe that we have gone too far by listening to the same piece of recorded music over and over. We need to go back to the start.

Morag

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: i love music, which means i love and value silence, too. the way we have turned music into an omnipresent commodity makes me sick.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: er, not listening or playing any kind of music all day? (would it be treacherous to muse some melodies in a low voice?)

23/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Music has become so diluted, there are no second albums anymore because someone has already come along and made someone elses second record before they have released it, because I feel like there are no treats anymore, because people only listen to an album once then download it onto their archives never to be listened to again, too much dilution through a mass of mass....bu at least we are not in the britpop and post britpop years, I think I moaned even more then..

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: shutting myself in a writting down all the memories past and present has given me and reflect

Kevin

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Well, I'm not observing no music day. See above. Interesting that you give people an opportunity to 'make a statement'... and upon clicking on the appropriate link, the assumption is made that they will be observing no music day. I wanted to make a statement to the contrary. I'll be making an effort to make as much music as possible on the day. You: easy way out. easy answer. inactive. negative. protest by inaction. easy. easy. easy. meaningless. easy. MAKE SOME FUCKING MUSIC INSTEAD.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Actually, I will NOT be observing no music day, because, in my view the way to make music meaningful is not to abstain from it. No music day is in fact the most unimaginative, negative way possible of making music meaningful, and of achieving your objectives, noble though they are.

Paul Knight-Malciak

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: good music is alive and well. but i listen to music so much that i am actually bored of it. even if i can detatchedly recognise that it's good, it doesnt make me feel like it used to. i abstained from my favourite band for 3 weeks and afterwards...boom! so i am hoping i can rediscover the whole of music in the same way on nov 22nd. also i think it will be an interesting test of willpower, of which i have none. we shall see...

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

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: To Give My Ears A Rest From Trying To Find Inspiration Only To Be Given Frustraition.

D
22/10/2006

 

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: I stopped listening to any music since 2002. Nada. I think the music scene has something cultish about it. "Brighteyes"? he makes me puke. Please. Music's dead to me. Maybe I'm dead inside. Last time I went to a concert, I had the overwhelming impression that I was being manipulated into worshipping the faux-genius idol on stage, and I walked out (left my date too).

Andy
22/10/2006

 

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: I shall be observing No Music Day by listening to Radio 1 all day as there is no music to be found there...

Richard Dickinson
21/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: almost everyone below is missing the point. also through the white noise of detuned FM I wish to meditate on the question: What does Music mean to me today? I suspect the answer will come to me at 00:01...EVERYTHING.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: actively avoiding listening to or making music during the day, though if I prevent my colleagues from playing their CDs or the radio I will likely be lynched, so instead I will tut and roll my eyes, like any other day really. At night I will be observing No Music Day by moving all TVs into the garden, tuning the digital radio tuners into Radio 4 and Talk Radio, and detuning all FM tuners.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Absence makes the heart grow fonder, if such a thing is possible! I will also be intrigued to discover which songs I crave to hear after a 24 hour denial, and which pop into my head regardless!

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Avoiding listening to any music, especially via commercials (no TV either) that have in many cases have stripped the magical essence of classic songs and used them for wholly inappropriate and offensive reasons!

Countess G>
21/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I am drowning in choice - my music collection is way too eclectic and has just become confusing. A day away from it may give me some perspective.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: I was struggling with this. What is "no music"?
By running my iPod on random for 24 hours with no headphones connected I will be able to capture a playlist then I shall know what "no music" is

Ian Edwards
21/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: it has been the soundtrack of my life for too long, and so much is profit-maximising 'pony'. Silence is valid; and so is bird-'song'.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: trying to not tune into any music stations, reproducing any, or singing etc, and turning down radio and telly if any gets through, and going somewhere outdoors where there is none.

Bob
21/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: i'm not sure. i think it's kinda bogus - where do you draw the line? if i'm thinking about music or playing a song over in my head (there's always something rolling around back there, usually the baby elephant walk) that to me is the same as physically listening to music. knocking ideas around about music is still engaging with music. chosing to not actively listen is still a form of participation. i'll give it a shot but if inspiration takes ahold of me i will fuck the whole thing off and act on it. life's too short and there's too much to do.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: shutting down www.infinitechug.com for 24 hours.

andrew>
21/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: This will enable me to appreciate the fact that silence is better than the vast majority of music today. There are, in fact, several exceptions for which I will make allowance - hence the "majority".

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Dancing to no music at all. By myself.

Rosie j
21/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I want whatever I hear on the 22nd to be of more significance. I want whatever I hear from that moment on to create stronger feelings within me, whether it's love or hate, and I think that temporary deprivation help to do that.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: I thought that would be obvious...

Moo
20/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: If one sound is important, every noise is important.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Holding a flash mass of noise to all forgotten and imaginary sounds.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: those who dare; win!

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: listening to XFM but turning off the radio whenever they play a song-lets see if the DJ's are any good when alone!

Simon T
20/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: it has a point, but I can see some immediate problems for most people who have the misfortune to work for a living. I spent 6 years working in a warehouse, like every other warehouse there is a radio permanently stuck to some regional FM station where the same 10 records are played every hour interspersed with inane advertising jingles and asinine vaguely right wing news bulletins. Trying to get your fellow workers to change the station for one day was met with shrieks of protest. Imagine trying to get them put up with no radio at all. You can picture their faces when you attempt to explain that to 're-engage with music' we should be listening to silence... Furthermore, watching TV is out of the question because music is inextricably part of the process. The Internet (especially MySpace) is off limits. Even walking down the street puts you at risk of experiencing unwanted melodic intrusion. Music is ubiquitous and as such has become cheapened and functional, somehow the magic has evapourated. Ipods have only made this worse because you can get exactly what you want when you want it. Instant gratification is the curse of our age. Living in a cave is the only escape, which is why I will be observing No Music Day by shutting out the world entirely.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Taking the day off work and locking myself in my house for 24 hours with only a pen and paper for company.

Jim Sonic Smith
20/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: the last great music revolution,acid house,is long gone,and there is no more music that means anything outside the selfish.Maybe there IS a revolution going on,and Im too old to even see it.Either way,like heroin,I hate music,but cant live without it.So for one day I can say,fuck you to music,and try to remember what I love about it

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: reading about music,probably a good Starvinksi BIO

Will Angeloro
20/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I did a similar thing about a year ago.
It's arduous abstaining from listening to music for a day, but doing so makes one realize that music is equally as addictive as more harmful vices.


19/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: i think it's a bl**dy good idea.
i have a lot to think about music-wise, and how am i gonna do that with a song stuck in my head?

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: not even touching my ipod or CD player or any of my instuments. and thinking. a lot.

phoebe
19/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: any day can be a no music day. For me it often is. I hate ipods. I don't watch television. I never sing in shower because I take baths. Music is potent and has to be handled with care. Can we have a no loud talking day instead? With law enforcement? Make it a year, actually.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: not listening to my ipod. Hang on, I don't have one. Oh, I guess I'll have to forgo the earplugs in that case and just eavesdrop on tube.

Sanja
19/10/2006

 

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: There is no original music anymore - creativity has dried up. Kids think samples are the real thing...

nicklas

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: when I was a kid, music was magic. It was full of thousands of types of joy, from the slowest dirge to the brightest of pop trash. Now it all seems to be on an endless loop, the repeat button stuck down & each time the loop gets smaller & everything just seems more familiar & less special. So I'll be observing No Music Day to keep music magic.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Pulling a sickie from work (in a recording studio), wedging carrots in my ears & watching Murder She Wrote all day with the sound off.

Phil Allen
19/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Nothing is without influence, but come on all these bands that write songs while sleepwalking through their older siblings record collections and adding nothing but an amnesiac thirst and respect for global marketing.
for Uncle Joe!!!

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: By cutting off the electricity supply and kidnapping all musicians, putting them in orange jumpsuits, gagging all singers, hummers, bus whistlers etc. All in 24hrs. My team of deaf elves will be there to help me. aurally fatigued.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: what was once a passion has now become a habit, a habit which I feel I need to break, if only for a day

Briffa
19/10/2006

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

howard>
18/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: It's a good way of realising how much it means to us. In fact, there may be silence in the world, no music but our memories of music would cause us to just play tunes in our head. We truly cannot escape music.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Sitting down and seeing how long it takes me to give into the temptation of listening to music. Music is a drug so one day without it and i would get withdrawel effects.

Catherine
16/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I believe you can have too much of a good thing.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Remembering the period 1979-1983.

Colin
16/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Music in many forms in bombarded into our brains from all angles, therefore I think we need to appreciate the fact that we still have a choice....for one day we will appreciate what we have and value this greatly, hopefully understanding that most of today's music in rubbish. either that or I read it in the observer and it sounded like a great idea... ;-)

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: trying to shut out and avoid all of the non-direct input that we do no realise that comes into contact with our brains day in day out...just for once it would be nice to hear the silence and let our minds relax from the constant input, to be fresh, to rejuvinate to empty ones mind and think that if this was all of the time then it would be hell. Music can wait for one day....the mind will be ours onceMore!

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: it's bloody true. There's so much cack music around 24/7 that to just down tools for a day seems like admitting defeat to me. Join the rebel alliance, stand up and fight!

Gold Digger

Michel LeGrisbi

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I am a radio and club DJ, and MUSIC is still quite ALIVE, you all are merely jaded.

One of my radio shows is called Music Out of Bounds, and I play all kinds of GREAT music that one isn't likely to hear anywhere else.

Good Music is dead?

BAH! You live in a sterile box if you believe that...

Tony Razzo
15/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I think its am artistically worthy idea.We are forcefed music all day all year.This must surely surreptitiously render it redundant and impotent.

I mean if you had a wank every day it just wouldnt be the same would it?

Come to think of it I do...hmm when's no wanking day?

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Observing a musicless bliss all fuckin day.Unless playing the sound of silence counts.But I hate Simon and Garfunkel anyway.Apologist twats.

What about the John Cage silent piece? Is that flagrant rule breaking?

TiffanyPCheese
15/10/2006

 

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: I will *not* be observing no music day, because -- no matter how jaded I may have become, or how uninspiring music may have become for me -- my one-year-old twin children are just beginning to discover the magic of music, and so I plan to spend some time that day -- as I do almost every day -- playing ukulele and singing songs I've written for them fifteen minutes before.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: thinking about music with words, music without words, music with voices, music without voices. Thinking about what music does for me, and whether i like hearing "songs" or "sounds".

Also, i'll be trying to keep away from unnecessary and pointless NOISE (ie much of the ambient music i hear).

paul saich
15/10/2006

fukinlame
15/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: My first single: Karma Chameleon - Culture Club

My First album: Sacred Heart - Shakespears Sister

I was born in 1980 and grew up in the 1980s. My parents allowed myself and my sister to buy a new single every two weeks. No downloads, No Ipods and two weeks to consume a 2:30 minute pop record. It was great. Its the way i listened to music way up until the late-90s...

Pop music has been swallowed by consumer culture and now i get bored of hearing a track two weeks before it comes out. The more music is rammed down your throat the more worthless it becomes.. but still we consume consume consume...

A lot of the world's problems are caused by over-consumption. So what do we do to counter these problems? We release charity records and sell rubber wristbands - consumer items. We just make the problem worse!

Rock'n'roll died with Live Aid.. Music is a consumer item.. Its run its course... good riddance...

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Not intentionally listening to any music and doing my best to avoid listening to any music unitentionally.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Getting John at RNG to turn off the crappy electro he plays alll day long.

jake
15/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Contrary to one of the statements in the 2006 Guardian article which led me here, it is *not* true that "Almost every piece of recorded music since recorded music began 110 years ago is just a click away." I know what it's like to suddenly have nothing to listen to -- all vinyl, CDs, MP3s gone, not necessarily replaceable, and the radio/TV worse than useless.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: 1) Thinking about all the music I've lost, and all the recordings I no longer have access to

2) Thinking about how my access to music has gone full circle -- from hearing about new music from friends, to a brief puff of mass media, to hearing about it from friends with a bit of Googling on the side

Kat

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Listening to whatever i want to listen to because i can have a no music day anyday of the year and i dont have to make a fucking campaign

florence
15/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: You people are pretentious and retarded. Music is a beautiful, wonderful thing. I can't believe one of you jerks actually used the phrase 'Cageian.' Get laid. Seriously.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: I'm not going to do this.

Jack Fuller
15/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: my ipod is in my car, my ipod is in my pocket, my ipod is on the train, i can't listen to music at the moment without feeling like there is something else i want to listen to at that very same moment - so i feel totally distanced from the track that I AM listening to ... my lust distract me from my love and it disgusts me - skipping through the tracks, shuffle, shuffle, skip ... theres something of the compulsive wanker about it ... grubby ... shuffle, skip, shuffle, shuffle, skip ... admit it ... 'he's a dirty old man' as the three degrees might have it, anyway on 21st Nov these ears are getting washed

Lee Jenkins
15/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I am 33.

After that, it's just pleasant background noise.

I will be mourning the loss.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Leaving my headphones at home.

Nujtter
15/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: You can't think clearly when music is distracting you. It is great for putting you in an altered state while dancing or love-making but during other activities it just diverts your attention, making you less intelligent.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Leaving the radio and the computer speakers off all day.

Marshall

David
15/10/2006

 

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I've downloaded so much of the stuff to fill my hard drive several times over, but I don't have time to listen to it. And what I do listen to is simply there while I'm doing something else - usually driving or surfing the web.

Have I forgotten how to listen with attention?

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Not listening to music: as far as I can - but as soon as I turn on the TV, there will be theme music, advertising jingles, soundtracks etc. So I guess it means no TV/DVDs either.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I look at the thousands of CDs I have and realise that I don't want to listen to any of them

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Society has become insular and inreoverted, no one dares speak to one another. Nobody communicates other than by fatuous blog comments and throwaway messengers.

When the people don't bond, the powers that be can do as they please, this is a BAD THING.

I love music, I really do, but, like a great deal of modern life, it has become an instant satisfaction disposable commodity.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Not using Winamp, taking the memory card out of my PDA, and, as goes without saying not turning on MTV. In fact, as almost all televison has music attached, it will have to be a no TV day as well.

I shall read a very good book.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: my other half is reading the sunday papers and told me to look at this website and put in his answers - which were rubbish. My response on the other hand is witty, urbane and very post ironic.

(My partner has just said it can't be very post ironic - but it is! He says he invented the term but that is nonsense.)

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: playing all my cds in alphabetical order with the sound down.

I shall also have the radio on with no sound.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: Whilst music does not have to exist as a commercial experience/product, it is one of the key economic sectors in the UK. Try as I might to resist contributing to this , as a producer and as a consumer, music remains the hook that keeps me coming back to engage in a system I am otherwise entirely sceptical of. I dont drive, I dont own a house, I have little savings etc. But music provides a way of rationalising my contuined contribution to UK Plc.

By silencing the desire for music on 21.11, I will be reflecting on why I continue to organise my existence in this pervese manner.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Attempting to control the extent to which one can choose to avoid listening to music. I say choose as this is not something an individual has control over. Car Stereos, neighbours, shopping centres, buses,lifts etc will no doubt undermine my purification during no music day.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I love music. To remind myself that there is no limit to the amount of music we can make, although we don't actually seem to value it. Let's stop, breathe in, and think about what we're producing and buying.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Avoiding spillage from others' iPods. Not going into shops where music is used as an aid to selling t-shirts and video games. By going for a walk in the park. By reading. By the 'Today' programme.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: It should be enforced, not once a year but once a week, at least, and maybe a week in the summer too.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: not forcing my apauling taste on anyone, and hoping everyone else has the decency to reciprocate.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I have the right to speak through music. I was put in prison by the Pinochet dictatorship for doing exactly that: playing music. I never stop playing and I never will, its my right and my duty. I understand if people -myself included- are fed up with the garbage we have to put up with and want silence, fine, but suppress the right to express oneself I am against. I will be playing as much and as loud as I can that day

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: I will not be observing no music day by playing any instrument or object that I find. Silence is dead

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: My friend Paul sent me an email saying he was going to and I don't have a mind of my own.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Fully appreciating the Cage-ian philosophy that there's no such thing as silence and that all sound is music. Thus NO MUSIC DAY looks like it's gonna be an exercise in ambient audition.

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

1 - As most broadcast music has become aural wallpaper and ipods merely an excuse to crush individual awareness with the sonic doodles perpetrated by the latest fad to hit the charts, a deliberate attempt to eradicate all musical activity for 1 day provides the impetus for us all to wake up and realise what music is and then consider what it could be if we reset the hands of the clock to zero.

2 - Too much music has become a kind of reflexive response to existence in that we consume it in the same way we might drink a beer or smoke a cigarette. The absence of any music at all for a whole day could in theory allow us the space to re-evaluate the purpose of music and our response to it.

3 - My God, don't I sound like an old wind-bag at times!

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

1 - Listening to Resonance FM all day.

2 - Watching the first 3 Sergei Eisenstein films (Strike, Battleship Potempkin and October 1917) with the soundtrack turned off.

3 - Working on my essays for our website on my computer.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: I work in a music shop, and it would make for amusing Black Books style stand-offs.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: thinking about music and silence. The higher the standard of the music you generally listen to, the more you realise that music truly is the cup that holds the wine of silence.

I am (or am not) observing No Music Day because: More than ever I find myself listening to the same things every day to the point that it's just background noise; I don't even listen to it. So let's just switch the background noise off for a day and see how it feels.

I will (or will not) be observing No Music Day by: Simply refusing to switch Winamp or any other media player on for the whole day, or at least for as long as I can stand it. If I can figure out how, I shall make a two-hour-long sound file and broadcast it via Streamer or Shoutcast.
